We visited Chalet Chatelet for a suprise birthday weekend and I must say it exceeded my expectations, and they were already high from previous reviews and pictures. This is such a beautiful place to stay, peaceful with beautiful mountain views, in a small village near some of the major ski areas. This made it feel like a real retreat away from the hussle and bustle but you are still very near it if you want it. The Chalet is beautifully and tastefully decorated and it feels like your home the whole time you are there. It's meticulously clean with amazing rooms. If you are booking as a couple I would defintiely check out all the rooms before you chose as they are all wonderful. We had a top floor room with great views and en-suite and loved it, just so relaxing. The hosts are fantastic and I must say were very helpful even before I arrived dealing with my many questions to make it a perfect surpise weekend. They are genuinely really nice people who are interesting and interested in you and clearly love what they do. We very much enjoyed their company over dinner which they will cook for you at an extra fee on request, but it's really worth it, as the food was delicious, 3 course with wine too. All made with love and care :) oh and you get breakfast too which was also great, we felt really taken care of. Suzie also recommended some outdoor activity place for mountain biking which was ALOT of fun. They do have a hot tub and Sauna, although it rained quite a bit when we were there, still useful I am sure for larger groups, especially in ski season!
This is clearly a place with the guests' best interests first. I would very much recommend staying here and rent a car so you can get out and explore the wonderful mountain scenery.
I have nothing bad to say about this place and would love to go back one day.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our boutique style eco-chalet is run as a luxury catered chalet over the ski season with gourmet cuisine and possible chauffeur service. During the rest of the year we offer a relaxing B&B retreat with the same high standard of personal service. We can help you organize summer activities such as mountain biking, white water rafting, and paragliding or suggest gentle walks or picturesque landscapes for painters and photographers. We offer a choice of four B&B bedrooms during spring, summer and autumn, each with a different atmosphere and decorated in soft colours and rich fabrics. Prices are from €80-€150 depending on time of year and which room you choose. Breakfast includes fruit juice, croissants, bread and homemade jams, homemade granola, fresh fruit salad, local Abondance cheese, cold meats, fresh organic coffee and a range of teas along with different specials such as homemade muffins. On request a delicious three-course evening meal can be provided, including specially selected wine, for 30€ per adult with vegetarian and special diet options. We cook with organic ingredients and fresh local and home produce.Bonnevaux is a quiet, authentic mountain village set in stunning surroundings. The chalet is on the edge of the village with a kids' playground close by. The garden behind the chalet is blissfully private with open panoramic mountain views. We are just over an hour from GENEVA airport, 20 minutes from EVIAN and Lac Geneva and 20 minutes from MORZINE and CHATEL respectively. So you can enjoy a breezy sail on the lake in the morning and take in the breathtaking Alpine sunset from the mountaintops in the evening.We built Chalet Chatelet ecologically with natural building materials and insulation and with solar panels creating hot water and electricity. The Tulikivi super-efficient log-burning stove with its bread oven radiates heat 24/7 during winter months and is situated in the centre of the large living room with a state of the art home cinema, comfy sofas and six place dining table. For large numbers, we serve the evening meal in the dining room on the ground floor where you also have access to an infrared sauna with jet shower. Outside we have a large garden set back off the road, surrounded by agricultural land, with an outdoor hot tub for the ski season, table tennis and table football. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us and we hope to see you very soon! ... more less
