Chalet Celeste Summer 2019
This is a fabulous property in a stunning location with nearby very friendly and extremely helpful owners. This wooden chalet has stunning views of the valley, perched high up on the hillside above the village. The chalet is very spacious, tastefully decorated and furnished to a high standard and we loved the jacuzzi. The area is great with lots to do, old alpine village (with good public swimming pool for kids) and lovely mountains. We had a brilliant family holiday and would love to return to chalet Celeste again.

Amazing chalet set in beautiful surroundings: refined decoration and not excessive, large cozy living room, high quality bedding, state of the art audivisual equipment, sauna and jacuzzi beautifully arranged (which is always full every night, victims of its success), and an incredible view over the Grand-Bornand valley.
The only criticism that can be made is that it is very difficult to leave at the end of the holidays!
Whether it be for sports fanatics, mountain lovers or those in search of piece & quiet, we were all thrilled.
Important point to note: the friendliness and availability of the owners who live just next door.

We had a brilliant family ski holiday. The services offered were of high quality and allowed everyone to relax after skiing. Getting onto the ski slopes is convenently close to a red run. The owners greeted us warmly and were available throughout our stay. Without hesitation, we will be coming back.
