Chalet Brio
Reviewed January 21, 2014

Chalet Brio is beautiful. This is a catered chalet at its best, superior furnishings stunning views and a great log fire to come back to after a day on the mountain. Breakfast all the usual expected foods, plus a hot option. Afternoon cakes waiting for you on your return each day.
My only critisism,(a tiny one) as there were only 6 guests a freshly baked different cake daily was not offered which was disappointing as I love the tea and cake on returning from ski-ing. With fewer guests perhaps individual small cakes, muffins etc. would have been a better option). Dinner in the evening extremely good, 3 courses with wine and coffee to follow.
All accommodations spotless and of good size. Plenty of hot water and excellent showers. The apartment within the chalet, offers excellent accommodation, and same superior furnishings.(I did not stay in the apartment, but viewed it as an option for a family trip.)
The owners, Robert and Caroline go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay with them and are very relaxed and friendly. Robert takes you to the slopes in the morning and brings you back to the chalet in the evening from wherever you've been ski-ing, or 'having that end of the day drink'.
All in all our short break stay at Chalet Brio was great and we wanted for nothing. Would I return for another holiday, absolutely, would I recommend this chalet, most certainly.

My family stayed in this chalet during Christmas 2013. The chalet is of beautiful, with lovely homely spaces, the bedrooms are clean and tidy, and the showers are hot ! We all loved the addition of a hot tub is fabulous.
The hosts were fantastic. They were relaxed and very friendly. They offered good advice about the skiing and where to visit. They even joined in the eccentricity of our family. They played their part well they were not too stand offish and not too over bearing. I would definitely say they were the best.
The food was very nice, at one point we were asking each other what are favourite meal had been, i can safely say that none of us could choose one in particular as they were all excellent. I don't imagine feeding 20 at the same time is easy but they managed with ease and we were all greatly satisfied.
The area is amazing, the amount of runs available is great and we had great weather. The hosts kindly transferred us to the lift in the morning and picked us back up.

I would most definitely stay here again and would recommend to all who want a luxury stay away

We had a superb three-day break at Chalet Brio at the start of the 2013/14 season. Samoens ski area was not yet open but Robert drove us to Flaine where we had wonderful skiing in bright sunshine and lovely snow, thanks to the cold weather. The accommodation is definitely superior, choice of showers or baths, lots of hot water and comfy beds. Evenings were spent by the cosy log burner and out in the hot tub breathing in mountain air! At the dining table you get stunning views of the Alps and the food was delicious and plentiful (great porridge in the morning, Robert!) My husband and our son (12) amused themselves on the table football and the Wii, also Sky TV and BBC available.
I lost my purse at Geneva and Caroline very kindly helped me report my bank cards and contacted the lost property office at the airport. They couldn't be more helpful and are very knowledgeable of the local area, both the skiing terrain and bars/restaurants.
The chalet is so near to Geneva (hour and a half max transfer), I would definitely recommend it even for a short break.

We had a wonderful week staying in the La Terrasse apartment within Chalet Brio. The chalet is beautiful and spacious with a lovely private garden. The views everywhere are stunning. The whole Samoens area is beautiful!! The owners Robert & Caroline made us feel really welcome.
The swimming pool was fabulous and really fun for our 3 kids ages 18,11 & 8. We barbecued some nights and ate at some fab local restaurants other nights. There is so much to do in the area we are definitely coming back to stay here again. Thanks for having us !!! Rachael & Simon

Team Lipgloss - 3 girls looking for comfort and pampering on the slopes.
In Chalet Brio, we found just that.
Spacious accommodation, extremely comfortable, with all the homely extras.
Robert and Caroline were perfect owners, and Simon and Eva were marvellous hosts.
The property was recommended to us by chalet owners from a previous year, and we really feel like we fell on our feet.
Nothing was too much trouble, and the food was utterly delicious
The hot tub was perfect for massaging the tired muscles after a perfect ski - with the deer as company. Bliss
We would definitely recommend the chalet for anyone wanting a skiing holiday where all you have to worry about is the weather :)

Just had fantastic week in Chalet Brio with 9 Of us. Perfect in every possible way! Considering we had 3 teenage boys, one special needs boy and an 8 year old girl the chalet offered everything. From great pool, british tv, Xbox on ground floor, wireless (new must have). Plus great location, restaurants, weather.... The list can go on. Many thanks to Caroline and Robert for sharing their excellent Chalet Brio cant wait to come back in 2013. We are missing the priceless view from the kitchen balcony.

Lovely location for varied summer alpine activities. Uncatered I the summer but Robert and Caroline were very attentive, helpful and friendly. They even provided some veg from the lovely garden!! Nice French feeling local villages, plenty of activities for the children (especially the pool!) and some great walking, climbing and running were done by our mixed family group. Recommended.
