“exceptional chalet, in stunning area”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We spent 2 amazing weeks in Sixt Alpine Chalet. It was spacious and very comfortable. The garden was fabulous, a large size which was great for the children as well. The views were stunning.The chalet was well equipped, everything needed was available to self cater when we needed to. Each bedroom was a good size, beds very comfortable and all had an en- suite which worked very well. The whole area had lots to offer, kayaking, rafting, via ferrata etc. The walking in the area is very good, scenery amazing.
Thanks to Sean who was very helpful and available to us.

“Sean and Julia do exactly what they say with a friendly and supportive attitude”
Reviewed 5 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We were 3 people . Never been to the area before and we had an extraordinary range of weather . The other gusts were children and 2 experienced skiers . We were picked up and dropped off at will and nothing was too much trouble. If you want a total package from pick up in Geneva and return and easy access to the slopes with a homely and well equipped chalet this is the place. They have many return bookings and I will be another one . One to go for

“Best Chalet we've ever stayed at”
Reviewed 25 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This is our 8th return to this chalet - the owners could not do more for us and are available on site to look after our every need. They always go the extra mile and could not do more.
The food is excellent, the rooms and beds are really comfortable and the main lounge has a lovely communal atmosphere with a large fire and plenty of sofas.

We had stayed at another chalet at New Year (this one was full) and every time we can't get into Sixt Alpine Chalet for a unscheduled break, the other chalets that we stay in only reinforce how good everything at this chalet is.

“A gem of a place”
Reviewed 3 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This is a hidden gem of a chalet. A wonderful, relaxing lounge with great views, comfy sofas and a roaring fire - the perfect place to relax in after a strenuous day skiing in the Grand Massif. The bedrooms are comfortable, the food is great and the owners could not do more for you.

I know that many people will be put off by its location being 10 minutes drive from the main ski lift at Samoens, but do not let this put you off. Sean (the owner) drives you to the ski lift in the morning and picks you up when you've finished. It's actually easier and quicker than walking (in your ski boots and carrying your skis) to the resort from Samoens town.

The village has a great bar only 100m walk away and the local ski hire shop is great. No queues, helpful and close by.

I have stayed there for a long weekend with mates and as two families, taking all the rooms. Both holidays were great and made by their fabulous, relaxing lounge and brilliant, friendly hosting.

I could not recommend the place more.

“This is the beset Chalet we have ever stayed at”
Reviewed 29 October 2015 for a stay in January 2013

We have been to this Chalet on about 7 occasions, and it is unquestionably the best one we have ever used anywhere in the world.

The food is outstanding.

The rooms are great. The central sitting room is lovely, with a giant fire to come back to every evening.

The owners are fantastic.

Oh and it is very very good value.

We made the mistake of going to a much more expensive Chalet last year, and it was not even half as good.
