A party of fifteen of us visited the Bauges to take part in the Etape du Tour bike ride.
I found Paul Tuohy and le Chatox on the web.
Paul was very responsive when he knew what we were after. We made Le Chatox the party HQ and Paul helped us to find other lodging nearby. Paul is a pleasure to deal with.
Le Chatox sleeps 8 people in comfort and has a simply stunning outlook. And the Bauges area is a complete delight. For cyclists, fantastic cycling country all around and some of the classic climbs within easy reach.
Paul and Wendy, thank you. If we ever come to the Bauges again, we know to look no further.

You're welcome Robin. It was wonderful to host such keen cyclists and share the magic of Les Bauges. The Etape nearly killed me though! Semnoz is a brute... come again and ski !!

“Fantastic holiday!”

The owners are amazingly helpful. Our driver broke his arm just before we were due to go on holiday and we had a major change of travelling plans. They put us in touch with local people who gave us lifts from the station, bought and delivered basic groceries for us and prepared a brilliant dinner for our arrival.
Waking up on the first morning to a beautiful mountain view was such a treat. We enjoyed two weeks of mountain/hill walking and exploring the local area. The townspeople are so welcoming and friendly too.
There's everything you could wish for in the house. Everything is well maintained and clean. The beds are really comfortable and the two really tall guys had no problems with their length- a unique holiday experience for them.
We are planning to go again.

You guys were amazing! No car for two weeks and you just got on with it and had a wonderful time on foot! in some ways you got more out of your holiday than most as you had to interact so much more with the locals than if you were in a car. Many would have cancelled, but you went ahead and were rewarded for your courage and perseverance... an incredible 'can do' family with a big christian spirit. We hope you'll come again - perfect guests.

“Wonderful Holiday”

We're just back from a week at Le Chatox and we've had a wonderful holiday. The chalet was really spacious as it sleeps 8 but there was only 3 of us. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped, theres not many self catering holidays that have le creuset dishes and a Gaggia coffee machine! The view from the balcony of the surrounding mountains was amazing. We had some lovely walks locally and drove to Annecy one day and hired bikes to go around the lake. A great location for Summer or Winter and would love to go back again. Thanks

Great that the three of you had such a wonderful stay. Don't forget that if you return your get an additional discount! Never too young to learn to ski and see Les Bauges again in the winter!

“Home from home in the French Alps”

This was our second stay as a family at Le Chatox and our first during the winter. The accommodation was as good as ever with all the facilities you would need for a very comfortable stay. The kids (& big kids) enjoyed the underfloor heating especially! The house remains a very comfortable base for a holiday whatever the season. Beautiful scenery and nature on your doorstep - no lizards or butterfly spotting this time, but the Birds of Prey could be viewed from the living room circulating high in the shadow of Mount Colombier.

We had explored the area during our previous summer trip so were well acquainted with all of the important landmarks and facilities (Supermarket in village, boulangerie,restaurants, scenic routes, Annecy, Aix, Chamonix etc).

Our intention during this trip was to sample the local alpine skiing at Les Aillons & Margeriaz ski resorts. We all thoroughly enjoyed the skiing and although the local schools were closed the slopes were never too crowded which was certainly appreciated by a family of skiing novices! The weather was good and allowed us to make full use of our reasonably priced lift passes. In fact I don't think we would have found a better value skiing anywhere else in the Alps.

As it was a skiing holiday we kept it local, but we were able to explore and have a meal in Annecy which remains as beautiful as ever.

We wish to thank Paul and Wendy for their hospitality and advice whilst planning the ski holiday. We look forward to counting down the months before our next trip (3rd trip already arranged for Feb 14)!

My husband and I and our two teenage children stayed at Le Chatox during the February half term. The chalet was perfect for our needs (and we are pretty fussy!) well equipped, warm, comfortable and clean. It had everything you could possibly need and more and great VFM. The two local ski areas were superb - excellent skiing conditions and very, very quiet. Absolutely no queuing for lifts - it was possible to do a whole run without seeing anyone else, except maybe a walker! Another bonus is the cost of ski passes, less than half the price of the big well known resorts. We will definitely consider a return visit. Thanks to our hosts Paul and Wendy for getting it just right.

This is a beautiful, comfortable and fully equipped chalet with stunning views of the mountains from its main living area and balcony. Two of the bedrooms also have a balcony with the same views. It was beautifully clean and had everything needed for either a summer or winter holiday, and there was excellent information about the surrounding areas - local shopping and restaurants etc.

The whole area is wonderful and nearby Annecy was gorgeous. Our holiday was a really delightful experience and we would certainly like to return soon.
