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 wonderful views from most windows.
There is ample parking, a children's play area, a large south-faci...

Shown around a spacious, warm, homely abode that was fully equipped with absolutely everything you could ask for. Once you enter you proceed into a lounge that smacks you instantly with breathtaking views of Mont Blanc. Inbetween skiing... more

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

This holiday maker enjoyed his stay so much that he enquired about buying the chalet from us ! 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
