“Wonderful chalet and hosts”
Reviewed October 1, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Stayed for a week for late summer break. The chalet is beautiful and views are to die for. Bedrooms are very large and some have stunning view over the valley and mountains. Jayne and Sid are very friendly and sociable hosts and nothing is too much trouble. We used the chalet as a base for exploring the Giffre valley and surrounding Savoie area. It's a wonderful area for walking and cycling. We were offered the option of B and B or half board and chose to eat in most evenings. The food was excellent and unlimited supply of wine was offered. Would highly recommend for a summer or ski holiday.

“Fantastic Alpine gataway”
Reviewed September 20, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed here in July to catch the Tour de France which was going through the local village. It's a beautiful, newly built chalet with comfortable accommodation and stunning views. Our hosts were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and the home cooked food was good and plentiful. The large living room was big enough to accommodate two groups of guests, and eating at the long wooden table on the veranda made dinner extra special.Thoroughly recommend if you're looking for a relaxing retreat in the Alps.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a lovely review - it's much appreciated. It was great to have a chalet full of guests having fun that week. The Tour de France was such a big party time for the whole town. And we still have the flags for the next time it visits :)

“Magical”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My week at Pure Alps was my first experience of the Alps in the summer. The stylish chalet was a perfect place to appreciate and then experience everything that the beautiful Giffre Valley has to offer. The views of the landscape and skies are stunning and the chalet owners are extremely helpful in suggesting walks, rides, places to eat etc. so that we could get the most out of the mountain environment.

The chalet is generous in every respect - spacious, light-filled, with an interesting library and great food. The guest rooms are huge and quiet and thoughtfully prepared. The weather was lovely during our stay and we sat outside most of the time, looking across to the mountains and up into the trees behind. Magical.

“Will definitely be back - again and again”
Reviewed July 31, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This new, family run chalet is situated in a beautiful setting with breathtaking views and is still in very close proximity to amenities - in Morillion and Samoens. Our group of six shared the chalet with another group of four (plus an 18mnth old) and there was plenty of room for us all - both private and communal. Our hosts, Jayne and Sid, were easy and laid back and helped to create a comfortable environment in which the two groups got to know each other and meal times were full of chatter and fun. The meals themselves were generous and hearty - and with many of the produce either grown in their own vegetable garden, or sourced from local farmers.
Our room was large and comfortable - with the best pillows I have had the pleasure of sleeping on! The shower had great pressure and plenty of hot water - no matter how many guests were using water at the same time.
Despite it being summer, we used the hot tub on some of the cooler evenings after long, hot walks up the mountains - and then enjoyed socialising around the cosy fire pit.
Overall, this was a great visit and we will definitely be back - to enjoy the home grown produce, friendly hospitality and beautiful surroundings!

PS. Those pillows - we love them too. Hat-tip to the good folks at Soak and Sleep for them :)

Had a wonderful 5 nights with Jayne & Sid in their new chalet. Great hosts & showed us some of the best sites around Samoens. Their hospitality was exceptional with the added benefits of a fire pit BBQ & hot tub!

I stayed in Jayne and Sid's beautiful new chalet for a week with a group of friends for the Tour de France. The chalet has been lovingly built and fitted out, and it shows - the décor is modern but comfortable, with lots of personal touches. The bedrooms are large and the beds comfy, each with their own en suite (and lovely rainfall showers!) There's also an accessible bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor.

The chalet is well positioned for the lifts up from Morillion and Samoens, so great for summer walking as well as the ski season. We did some really nice walks that were easily accessible by foot or a short drive - along the Giffre river, Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval, up the Col de Joux Plane and through the forest into Samoens town centre. It's a good base for seeing the whole of the Giffre valley, which is stunning, though you will need a car to make the most of it.

We took the catered option for the week and the food was excellent. A range of local fare and some dishes from further afield if you get fed up of cheese - Thai curry anyone?

Jayne and Sid are very friendly hosts, but they'll let you get on with your own thing too. We'll definitely be going back in the winter!

Thanks for coming to stay with us, and for taking the time to give us such a lovely review. It was great fun having a full house for the Tour de France week (and what a great result for Froome & team sky). We look forward to seeing you again in the winter season....though maybe less cycling then!
