When my husband came back from a ski holiday with his colleagues he was so enchanted with Chalet Isabella that he wanted to take me and our two daughters back there as soon as possible. Now, back home in Amsterdam after a wonderful May holiday on the hills of Verchaix we miss the place already. The breath taking view, laid-back... More

I have skied in many of countries and in different types of accomodation but now that I've found Chalet Isabella I am going to keep on going back. Firstly the chalet itself is lovely, luxurious, genuinely rustic and peaceful. Located on the mountainside opposite the Samoen gondola the views are to die for. Seeing Mont Blanc peaking over the ridge... More

Isabella sits majestically over the valley Giffre, with fantastic views of Verchaix and Samoens. Eight minutes in Jimmy's minibus took us to the gondolas, opening up everything the Gand Massif offered before we returned to Sarahjane's awesome cooking and Jimmy's generosity as a sommelier! We had a hoot and we will be back.

Luxury is definitely an overstatement for this chalet. It certainly didn't live up to its online description. No sign of a champagne reception or any pre-dinner nibbles. Breakfast was very basic with eggs being the only hot option and not sure what cold option was, no fruit for the whole week. Evening meals rather un imaginative and poorly planned. Wine... More

Having become accustomed to pokey, cramped accommodation in French ski chalets this was a welcome and vast improvement, without having to pay any discriminatory single supplement! Really good value. Wine and food were good and plentiful. The skiing was great too - would thoroughly recommend an all mountain pass to get a good range of awesome skiing for anyone who's... More

That was what my partner said as we got on the plane home-I suppose we'll just have to settle for booking again asap. As the only novice skier in the group I was a little nervous prior to the holiday, as it happened I enjoyed the skiing but I would also have been fine if I hadn't- I could have... More

We've just returned from a week at Chalet Isabella with a group of 6 other friends and our 15 month old son and are already determined to visit again as soon as possible. Having done several ski trips in cramped, self-catered apartments we felt it was time to do a more grown up holiday - definitely the right decision! Sara... More

Have returned seven times so say no more!! - always have a brilliant time, Sarajane, Jimmy and family look after us beautifully and nothing is too much trouble. Lovely chalet with fantastic views and if you like a hot tub for the aches and peace at night after a hard days skiing this is the one for you. The ski... More

We stayed over the Christmas week and shared the chalet with another English family who we didn't know which worked out very well. The chalet isn't actually situated in Sameons which is a little misleading as it's closer to Verchaix but is quite a way up the mountain side. The situation is pretty and we knew beforehand that we'd need... More

This house was perfect. We were a group of 11 with younger and older children. The hosts children were great fun and very entertaining. We had homemade snacks ready everyday when we got back from skiing. Everything was so relaxed you felt at home.
