We stayed in La Petite Ourse, which is designed for a single family (ie not shared with other families/guests). Sam and the team at Absolute Alpine ensured that the entire holiday was wonderful - from the process of booking the... More

We have recently returned from another fantastic stay at Apartment La Roche! Having stayed there before, we knew what luxury awaited us. Jamie welcomed us on this visit and he was extremely friendly and helpful, giving us his mobile number in case we needed anything during our stay. The apartment is fabulously comfortable. The beds are amazing and the 2... More

Our group of five adults and four young children were completely and utterly spoiled for the week we stayed at the Grand Ourse. The chalet itself is lovely and very well equipped with everything from a hot tub to a Wii to an honesty bar. An easy walk into town, and gorgeous views. We were looking forward to a week... More

8 of us (adults) stayed for a week in Chalet La Roche and had a wonderful stay. The chalet is lovely and has a great layout with a big open plan kitchen/dining/living area that accommodated us all. The kitchen was clean and well equipped and we could all fit comfortably around the dining table. The beds were super comfy and... More

Our adult group of 12 stayed for a week at the start of Feb. The team made us very welcome and could not do enough. The chalet itself is very clean and well appointed. It is spacious and has everything you might need. If you are a light sleeper I would take ear plugs though as sound does travel. You... More

We stayed as a group of 10 in January and had the chalet plus apartment downstairs. We had a wonderful week and unanimously loved the chalet in every respect. It compares very favourably with others we have stayed in being extremely well appointed, clean and with very comfortable beds in all rooms. So convenient for the town and bread shop... More
