“Brilliant weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Just back from an brilliant weekend staying in Chatlet Le Dragon. The Chalet was superb. It's clean, spacious and superbly equipped with everything you could need on a holiday.

Matt and Emma are great hosts organising everything on our trip including transfers, bikes, guides, rafting not to mention the great food. Nothing was to much trouble.

There's loads of activites to do in the local area and some nice pubs and restaurants in the local village.

Thanks for a great trip and hope to see you next year!

Stayed July 2012, traveled with friends

Just got back from three days in the Alps staying at chalet dragon with three friends. Matt helped organise 2 days mountain biking with the best (not to mention coolest) guide you could wish for (holygrail mountain biking) along with bike hire, a mornings white water rafting and finishing off with a zip wire crossing a valley at a ludicrous height. Great accommodation, Matt and Emma couldn't do enough for us and there is loads to do with what must be the best mountain biking in the world at chatel and morgins bike parks. Still grinning and looking forward to next year. Thanks guys!

I visited Chalet Le Dragon for a late ski break last Easter with my 2 sons. We had a great few days and nothing was too much trouble for Emma and Matt. They ferried us around (remaining good natured when arrangements changed!!) and guided us on a half day tour of more distant corners of the area'a skiing. I would recommend the chalet to any family or group of friends and really hope to return myself one day.

I had such a relaxing stay here.. Good location, plus the views were incredible! The tinkling of the cow bells every so often, was lovely! It really was "something special" that took my breath away!
Emma and Matt were brilliant hosts and their 3 young boys are a credit to them!Luke, Finlay and Ollie you are missed, very much! But don't worry I will be back to see how your getting on and enjoy more fun times with you all!
Emma and I did the White Water rafting on the Monday, highly recommend this!! It was brilliant! Good for all ages and abilities and the people who took us were so welcoming and friendly. Big thank you to you guys! The experience is one which you will not forget! Be prepared for the wet suits and lots of paddling. Brilliant scenery whilst coming down the river though!
The rooms were exceptionally clean. In fact the whole chalet had such an inviting and cosy atmosphere, I would imagine in Winter it would be just gorgeous. True luxury!
Thank you for such a relaxing stay!

Room Tip: Selection of rooms available- Brilliant nights sleep as it was so quiet! Bath rooms are very spacio...

Have just returned from a weekend of mountain biking and white water rafting with 6 friends.
The chalet was superb. Clean and spacious with a large garage for all our bikes and a fridge full of beer for when we returned from the mountains!
Matt and Emma are perfect hosts - nothing was too much trouble and Matt ferried us around in his minibus brilliantly.
We will definately be back next year.

Matt and Emma made all 7 of us very welcome for our fun filled long weekend in the Alpes. There was lots to keep us occupied due to the great location and proximity to Chatel. 10 out of 10 take care and thanks again

Cheers James

We stayed at Chalet Le Dragon for 5 nights during June Half Term and had a fantastic time.

The location of the chalet is simply stunning with amazing views of the surrounding mountains.

The Chalet itself is beautiful and very comfortable - just what we had imagined.

Matt and Emma (and the boys) were superb hosts and we would thoroughly recommend Chalet Le Dragon as a wonderful place to stay.
