“luxury chalet le 4 - great base to explore Haute Savoire”
Reviewed March 20, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This was quite simply the best chalet we've ever stayed in anywhere. We've skied on & off for 30 years and nowhere have we had such a warm welcome (thanks Eva!), great food and fantastic accommodation. The chalet is a family home, has been completely rebuilt in traditional style and is very comfortable. All the fixtures and fittings are to a very high standard and we really could not have had a more attentive host or a more relaxing and luxurious place to stay in the lovely Le Grand Bornand area. There's a mixture of winter sports activities and we think the Haute Savoire (and the chalet) would also be great all year round.We were able to hire ski kit & buy ski passes next door (almost) & we had the most fabulous week...

“Friendly, warm, faultless, stylish luxury”
Reviewed March 20, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

From a beaming smile welcome to a sad farewell my stay at the Chalet, hosted by owners Eva and Piet, was perfect in every way. Eva's cooking was looked forward to each day whilst working up a good appetite on the ski tracks. Returning home (it felt like home) for afternoon cake, different and freshly baked each day, was a real treat. A blast in the superbly kitted gym or swim in the endless pool followed by a sauna and roll in the snow (ok last bit I lied!) rejuvenated set me up for the evening meal. Everything was without exception delicious.
The Chalet, recently rebuilt has been completed to an amazingly high standard, retaining the old farmhouse wood but recycled into the new structure. Subtle details everywhere showing much thought and sensitivity went in to the rebuild. How many places have luxury white towels for each exercise areas, each with gym, sauna or pool discretely embroidered in them?
In summary - awesome. I'm already planning to go there again next season with Tracks and Trails.

“Fantastic Chalet in beautiful setting”
Reviewed February 21, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed at Chalet le 4 for a week in Feb with our 3 year old twin girls. It was our first holiday of this type with the children. On arrival we were delighted by the appearance of the Chalet, the wonderful location opposite the sledging field and cross country skiing, framed by mountains behind. There was lots of snow but the roads were all accessible. The owners Eva and Piet welcomed us warmly and showed us around. The chalet is like something out of 'Grand Designs', well thought out and very high quality throughout. Touches like the hard wired baby monitors and family friendly equipment were a big help. The apartment was spacious, spotless and like a home from home with everything we needed. The swimming pool was perfect, warm and clean, we used it daily with the children. Eva cooked for us on two evenings and both meals were delicious. This is a truly high quality establishment and we would highly recommend it.

We definitely can recommend this still (after two years) new accommodation in de France Alps. We booked it this year for the second time and where surprised it still looked as new. The family who build it and live on the top floor with their three nice kids, handle Chalet le 4 with care and love. In combination with the beautiful view of the Alps (when you wake up) this place is well deserved holiday destination. Go for it!

“Excellent, enjoyed every moment”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed with Eva & Piet for a short cycling week. The chalet is a perfect location for traveling to the french alps. Surrounded by great scenery it offers great luxury for anyone. Local shops are within five minutes drive. Our apartment was super clean and offered everything we needed. Eva & Piet were great hosts and took care of us in a perfect way. Anyone want to cycle tour de france stages this is the location to stay.

“Modern, very comfortable, beautiful location, great for kids.”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

A relaxing and enjoyable week in a quiet picturesque valley. Hosts were delightful. Facilities brilliant - sophisticated cooking, lighting, tv, coffee etc equipment. Underfloor heating made it very warm and pleasant. Cosy wood burners in all apartments and the communal area. V clean and comfortable. Kids loved the pool, swings and wonderfully stocked play room. Endless wave machine was brilliant for the adults. Would definitely book again.
An easy drive to Annecy.

“The Perfect Chalet”
Reviewed September 2, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We spent a week in the summer at Chalet Le 4 as part of a group of 25 and it was perfect. The chalet is fitted to a very high standard: all the appartments are comfortable and spacious and Eva was very helpful in making sure we were able to comfortably accomodate such a large group. Lots of things to do for the more active, for others lots of lounging on the terrace or by the outdoor pool in the village. Stunning location and views but only a 10 minute drive into the village (or regular free bus from the door.) The facilities in the chalet were exceptional: heated pool, gym, massage room and sauna as well as further indoor communal areas upstairs. The table d’hôte meals were excellent and flexible so we could cater for ourselves some evenings or eat out. The owners are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. I have stayed in the Alps many times and this place takes some beating......!
