Nothing is like the opinions and feedback of those who have trusted us to rent their holiday chalet!
  • Holiday for 3 families with small children. We were located perfectly in the resort, very close to the village of marmots, close to the ski slopes, possible access and fast even on foot. The cottage suited our numbers perfectly with a very comfortable living area. Ideal position to be quiet while having quick access to the center of the village and the slopes. A perfect holiday!
    We had a very nice stay at the chalet route de la Dranse. Mrs. Vuarno welcomed us very kindly. Despite the hospitalization for almost 4 days of our grandson in Thonon les bains for bronchiolitis, we spent wonderful times with family. The icing on the cake: the 30 cm of fresh snow that allowed us to build a double igloo at the back of the chalet and thus do much better than our French neighbors... We wish you a very happy new year! Looking forward to renting a chalet at home!
    We had a very nice stay in your very spacious and warm chalet. We found everything we needed in dishes and cooking. The plus is the equipment for babies made available free of charge. In terms of services, we didn't need them
  • We are all very happy with our holidays in the mountains and the beautiful beach discovered at Lake Geneva near Thonon. Our children even made sandcastles! Curious, isn't it? Thanks again to you!
    Our whole stay went very well and we knew how to keep busy all week with all the activities we could do. A well-deserved rest after our cool outings in the deckchairs on your terrace facing the mountains and the setting sun. The resort is beautiful and well flowered! Great chalet!
    Just a little message to tell you that our week went very well we visited the region a lot and made beautiful walks in the mountains. Your area is really beautiful and the mountain is beautiful in summer. I am sending you a picture of Lake Darvoin. Regarding the chalet nothing to say very well equipped and neat. We will be back for sure!
