Les Hameaux Du Giffre
Reviewed 17 July 2014

As a family, we are not winter sports people and therefore this review is purely for a summer holiday. Les Hameaux is smallish site made up of largely privately owned chalets of various capacities.Many are available for hire through the office on site. For this the management take a cut or fee from the private owners. There is no camping,tourers or static caravans and is more popular for skiing in the winter.
This is a quiet site with limited communal facilities. There are no child entertainers, bar, plat de jours etc. it is however, a well laid out, clean,relaxing community of largely French owners although there are Swiss and Brits. At the site entrance there is an OK steak restaurant and across the road is a family run restaurant that provides excellent Tartiflette(cheese,bacon and potato pie).
The village of Verchaix is quiet but Samoens two miles away has good restaurants,shops,town square,botanical gardens and bars.
Local walks great, municipal lido excellent,visits to Morzine, Annecy,Chamonix a must. I love this place but it is for those happy to make their own entertainment,BBQ's,reading, walking,playing with their children,bike rides etc. It is not a holiday camp with organised entertainment. Car almost essential.

Although this s an area known for skiing we chose it for our summer holiday. The setting of the site is beautiful, surrounded by mountains in a wooded area next to the Giffre river. The site is quiet and well laid out. Each lodge has a private garden area to relax in. Our lodge was clean, surprisingly spacious and very well equipped. You are a five minute walk from a boulangarie and post office. Le Lac Bleu a bathing area is also less than ten minutes walk. It is a lovely place to relax and there is no charge. Close to Morillon (again a short walk), where there are shops and bars. We did not like the bar near the site, Le Caribou because the service was pretty poor. Unfortunately it was understaffed on both our visits and people dining were served ahead of people wanting just a drink with no apology. A Carrefour supermarket is 5 minutes drive away and the ten f Samoens just beyond that. We found Les Hameaux a great base for walking in the Giffre valley and for exploring the Haute Savoie region by car. Don't miss the Col Joux Passe the summer route from Morzine to Samoens on a clear day you get stunning views of Mt Blanc. Also a very short drive away is the Cirque de Fer a Cheval which is stunning. Internet access is available in the club house for a small charge. The site is clean and well kept. Pets are welcomed. Olivier and Sandrine who run the site are really friendly and helpful.
