This is a neat, clean chalet 5 mins walk from Samoëns. We enjoyed a lovely week as a family, being made to feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for Sam and the two chalet ladies. The food served at supper was great- very tasty and varied (always three courses and always with a good wine available)! They provided a lovely spread for a packed lunch each day. Breakfast was continental, with warm croissants etc. We received plenty of advice and assistance with finding, booking and getting to activities, which included mountain biking, hiking, rafting and lake swimming. The children in particular loved the hot tub! The chalet staff take a well-earned break mid-week and we spent that day hiking to a refuge (at Lac des Gers- all booked for us by Sam) and spent the night there- a fantastic experience. The chalet is very well equipped and comfortable- not huge, but just right for our needs as a family of four. There is easy parking for a car too, and it’s a simple 1-hour drive from Geneva. We would highly recommend it as a wonderful base for enjoying the French Alps in summer.

Had an absolutely fantastic week in Samoens with Absolute Alpine. 5 Days of amazing walks lead by the hugely knowledgeable and entertaining Bruno. Then back to Le Grande Ouse for fabulous home cooked food - thank you Ash and Georgia! Whether you are a solo traveler (as I was) or a couple, I couldn’t recommend this more highly. You will get to meet lovely, interesting people and have fantastic walks in the beautiful alps. Thank you to Sam and all the team - I will be back!

We had a wonderful week. The staff at the chalet were beyond excellent and were creatively delicious with our gluten/dairy free diet requirements. Bruno the guide not only got us two 75 year olds up and down the mountains safely and with encouragement but shared his knowledge about botany, geology and history of the mountains. The other guests came from different parts of the world and after a couple of days, we were one big family.

We had a wonderful week in La Grande Ouse thanks to Absolute Alpine's fantastic team. We were admittedly lucky to have the place more or less to ourselves, but the chalet was lovely and the delicious cooking second to none. We felt so looked after - nothing was too much trouble and the team was particularly thoughtful for our 6 and 9 yr olds. Our only observation would be that if another family had been there and the weather hadn't been so great, the common spaces might have been a little 'cosy' - and we also baked at night in the top bedrooms, but it was a particularly heatwave heavy week and Alpine chalets aren't known for their air con. All in all, we loved it - great location, so much to do in the area and we felt so looked after. We'd love to come back with a bigger gang. Thanks!

A group of friends and I traveled to France from Australia and stayed in the La Petite Ourse Chalet. We had a wonderful time! The chalet was clean and everything was set up/provided for us! The staff were phenomenal! They were friendly, informative,helpful and accommodating towards us. The food/meals provided were delicious, and allowed us to enjoy hiking around without worrying about where to eat or cooking dinner. The views around the area are also well worth seeing! I know that my friends and I had a lovely time and would happily repeat the experience. Thank you very much for such a great experience!
