“Fantastic spacious Chalet. Great owners. Very well organised. Very easy access to lifts.”
Reviewed 15 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I have stayed in very many chalets over many years and this one really is great. It's in a beautiful location overlooking the small village of Sixt. Do not be put off by the fact there is a short minibus transfer to a ski lift each morning/afternoon. Sean, the owner, is a very well organised chap and will take you right to the entrance of the lift system in Samoen or Sixt at a time to suit you in his own minibus. Its literally door to door. You will only have to walk a couple of metres with your skis. It worked really well all week. He is flexible at the end of the day too and will pick you up after a few beers if you don't want to head back as soon as the skiing is over.
The chalet is one of the most spacious I have seen. Sean has not squashed as many rooms into the chalet as possible. The result is the most spacious dining/lounge area I have seen in a chalet. It's really comfortable to relax in.
The chalet is staffed by Sean and his family. All are mature adults and there are no 'hired in kids' that you so often get staffing chalets these days. The result is as you would expect from an owner who has owned & run this chalet for 9 years. Everything is well organised, food is good, wine is plentiful and the chalet very clean indeed. It's so easy for the guests.
If you want to hit the bars after the evening meal and go crazy all night then this is not going to suit you. If you want a very comfortable chalet which is very well run, and like to relax in an evening then I would recommend this place. Its great for odd dates too since Sean will take split week bookings arriving any day.
A big thankyou to Sean, Julia and Seans Parents for making it a great week.

“Wonderful chalet, wonderful location, wonderful owners”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is a really nice place to stay. Seven of us spent a couple of weeks there in July. It’s a great chalet, very loved, 4 good en-suite bedrooms with comfortable double or twin beds (1 with bunks too) and room to swing cats and hang clothes unlike many chalets. A wonderful huge living/dining room, very cosy, 3 sofas, a big dining table, TV, wifi, games, books, CDs, log fire if you need it (it’s the mountains!) Everything you’ll need in the kitchen, garden with a barbecue and lovely open grass area with great views overlooking the village and valley. Very peaceful, the only sounds are the water in the river on the valley floor and the occasional church bell.
We’ve spent many holidays in the Alps and Sixt is an exceptional place to stay. Very accessible and there’s lots to do in the summer. Walking is fantastic even within a few miles so no need for big trips, and there are lots of local lifts to take you (and bikes) higher if you prefer. In July there’s still a fair amount of snow on the mountain tops and northern slopes so it’s very pretty and the local mountains go over 3000m so the scenery is spectacular. Cycling on or off road is good with a Tour de France climb nearby for the energetic, there's white water rafting for all ages on the river just a few minutes walk away, great climbing – there’s a safe via ferrata just down the road if you fancy a climbing ‘taster’ – parascending if you feel adventurous, mini-golf if you don’t.
The owner Sean is really helpful and the chalet is extremely well looked after. We can’t recommend it enough.

“Lovely chalet with beautiful private garden and fabulous views”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Just 5 mins from the larger village of Samoens Sixt Alpine Chalet is in a idyllic location just about the village of Sixt. Fantastic sitting room with balcony at one end and doors onto the beautiful garden at the other end. Fabulous views all around and sunny aspect. All very well appointed with everything you could possibly want. We had a wonderful time there and can't wait to go back.

“Couldn't be bettered!”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We have just spent a wonderful week at this beautiful chalet. The bedrooms are fantastic, the lounge and views from it incredible, the food amazing and Sean and Julia couldn't have looked after us, and our two teenage children, any better. The skiing was wonderful despite being so late in the season and the high runs at Flaine were readily accessible from the gondola at Samoens. Sean dropped us there regularly and there is also a good ski bus service from the village. The view from the garden over the village of Sixt and the mountains beyond is simply breathtaking. We had tea and cake after a hard day skiing sitting there in the sun and it was magical. Sean knows the area so well and was incredibly helpful and accommodating, and nothing was too much trouble for him or Julia. The bedrooms had very comfortable beds and are all en-suite.
We couldn't recommend this chalet more highly and the sight of a Lamagier vulture flying over our heads as we sat on a chair lift was the icing on the cake for us.
We will definitely be back and cant wait for our next visit to the Sixt Alpine chalet and this very special part of the Alps.
