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.

Spent 4 nights at the Chalet Giffre with a group of friends as a base for a cycling trip. 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... More

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!!

Oli, met us at the airport. Oli drove us to beautiful places. Oli cooked us all our meals. Oli took us on a stroll! His words not ours!

We had a wonderful welcome at Chalet Giffre even though we arrived really late, long after we were due. Oli is lovely and made us feel really at home. The room was clean, comfortable and well equipped with shutters which keep the room dark if you tend to be woken up by the light at 5am! Upstairs there's a large... More
