The dining room is inside an authentic Chalet set on a ridge overlooking the valley. Several course later and some fantastic wine was followed by a cheese course I will remember for a lifetime. The owner noticed I was alone and joined me for dinner. Experience of a lifetime and well worth the journey.

Had a fabulous time staying in Les Clarins, a gorgeous little chalet with private hot tub. The food in the restaurant was out of this world and the staff were really attentive and friendly. We will definitely return!

Just got back from one of my best mountain week ends, thanks to this amazing place!!! For those looking for peace, nature and real personalized services, Chalets de Philippe is the place for you! It perfectly combines the beauty of traditional mountain chalets together with luxury services, though in a warm and family-like atmosphere, very unusual in popular mountain places... More

This was just the perfect getaway. The location was spot on, tucked away within the mountains looking out over champonix. The chalet was so cosy, clean and warm. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially when my car broke down at the bottom of the mountain. We were saved by staff who rescued us and then helped tow my... More

Les Chalets de Philippe is the perfect place to escape from stress and routine while living a unique experience which re-defined for me what I considered as luxury. Upon arrival, you are warmly welcomed by Philippe before you are taken to your own chalet. Once settled down in the chalet, it is time to relay and enjoy? Right outside of... More

I felt like I had entered a scene from the Hobbit. To say that this place is quaint, would be an understatement. What a fantastic property! Apparently, all of the chalets were purchased and transported from their original locations. We arrived weary and frazzled and were given a very warm and kind reception by Philippe. We were a little apprehensive... More

This accommodation catered to every childhood fantasy whilst assuring every luxury required as an adult was answered. We stayed for three nights in our chalet Les Clarines and on arrival, I admit even knowing the chalet was small from time of booking it was still an initial surprise, however it was not a problem, it added to the feeling of...

We had a wonderful stay at Les Chalets de Philippe last week. The food was excellent and prepared right in our living room. The menu changes daily and there was good variety, along with a good wine list featuring a nice range of price points. The rooms were smaller than we've grown accustomed to at some larger chain hotels, but... More

Ok...this place isn't cheap! But if you are looking for something really special then I would recommend it. We ate here in the summer and in a fit of madness decided to book Les Barattes for 3 days over Christmas. It's a traditional wooden chalet which sleeps 2/4 people (we were 2 and I wouldn't really have liked to share... More

This was my second stay in this dream hamlet. And it was as perfect as in my memories. We were a group of 12 people and all of us enjoyed the charm of each room and the quietness of the environment. The attention to details in each room and the collection of regional antiques from Philippe are amazing. Food was... More
