Chalet Giffre is excellent! I highly recommend staying here and would most certainly stay here again. The Chalet itself is in an excellent location. It's right near the town, which makes it convenient for eating, drinking, or booking things. In addition, the rooms are comfortable and the living room area is very nice. Chalet Giffre did a very reasonably priced...

Stayed at Chalet Giffre for 1 night while passing through Samoens on the GR5 trail. It was extremely comfortable, clean and convenient. Everything you could ask for. Ontop of this, Ollie was a great host - personable, super friendly and accommodating especially when my partner was sick in bed for the night with a cold. Highly recommend.

The chalet was perfect for us as a large group with simple, functional en suite bedrooms and a fantastic, large communal space for relaxing with a few beers. There are multiple comfy sofas a mini "library" and even a large chess...

A great chalet for a relaxed and friendly cycling holiday. Good location with lots of routes nearby, massively helpful host Oli, who couldn't do enough for us, and one of the prettiest villages in France. What's not to love? Highly recommended!!
