    Chalet La Ribambelle is a beautiful traditional chalet set above the alpine village of Combloux, with spectacular views of the Mont Blanc and its mountain range. It has been used as a family holiday home ever since it was built approximately 50 years ago by our parents. It is set at the end of a quiet lane, with rolling fields below and very few other houses around, providing a wonderfully tranquil setting with plenty of open space.

    SKIING. Ski slopes are 3 minutes by car. A shuttle bus is available. We can organise ski hire at discounted rates.

    The chalet is on three levels, with the main living accommodation on the middle level. The house sleeps 14 people in six bedrooms with 4 bath or shower rooms, very spacious living areas and w...

We spent a very enjoyable week at La Rimambelle. The chalet is in a very quiet position above Combloux, well away from any busy roads. It has the most extraordinary views of Mont Blanc and the surrounding mountains - better than the views from Chamonix in most ways because the extra distance lends some perspective. Not that this makes Mont... more

Sitting on the terrace of the chalet, it is difficult to believe the fabulous panorama of Mont Blanc and all the other peaks is real. Surrounded by mountains with the green valley below, it is peaceful and relaxing - the only sound being the cowbells. La Ribambelle is wonderfully comfortable, spacious and well equipped. Lots of facilities within a short... more

The property is at the end of a lane and was easy to find using the instructions provided by the owner. There is ample parking on a level site and it was easy to unload the luggage. It is well... more
