“Relaxing catered chalet”
Reviewed February 28, 2017 for a stay in February 2017
1
person found this review helpful

Chalet Lac de Vonnes is a cosy chalet to stay in for that catered chalet experience. Darren is a wonderful host. Nothing is too much trouble for him. He made sure that everything ran smoothly for us. We particularly enjoyed him showing us round the pistes. He clearly is passionate about the Portes du Soleil area. We were 2 families staying for a week, and we instantly made the chalet our home. The food we were offered was excellent, and the wine was plentiful. Our hosts, Alex and Matt, were so helpful and provided us with excellent service. The children enjoyed the mezzanine level, where they were able to get cosy and watch movies after dinner. Our thanks go to Darren, Matt and Alex for such a wonderful week in Chatel.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and of course thank you for your kind words.

It was a pleasure to meet you all and now having been here 12 years, love to ensure that everyone gets the wealth of knowledge I have acquired about the area....hopefully not too boring ;-) lol

I by no means bored of this extensive area and to get to show people who can ski so well around, is certainly no chore.

Thank you for your comments about the comfort of the chalet and the food and wine.....we go to great lengths to ensure attention to detail and are so gad when it is very much appreciated.

Have a wonderful year and hope to see you all in the future,

Darren and the Alpinebreaks team

“Hidden gem in Chatel”
Reviewed January 30, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Thank you Darren, Alex and Matt for a wonderful week. You catered for every wish and dealt last minute with extreme diet requirements .... Superb!! Loved my trip back to the chalet by way of Linga then Super Chatel, an ideal wind down to a great day skiing in a top resort....... Only to be topped by a dip in the hot tub, whilst sipping my favourite beverage and watching the sun go down...... Enjoy the rest of your season, very envious!!

“Superb chalet with amazing food and hosting.”
Reviewed December 19, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

From our arrival at Geneva airport nothing was too much trouble for Darren Parker and his team. The chalet is beautiful inside and immaculately clean. The food served by Matt and Alex was delicious and some of the best I've tasted in a chalet. I would definitely recommend this chalet to anyone, and will definitely be returning. Thanks again Darren and the team.

“Amazing experience ”
Reviewed September 14, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Thank you to Darren and the guys Luke and Grace for looking after us. If you are looking for that bit extra this is for you. Great food, amazing Alpine views and so much more. If you love mountain biking then Chatel has a lot to offer. This was our 3rd visit and definitely not our last.

“Superb! No other word for it.”
Reviewed September 14, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Have been late summer mountain biking in the Alps for more than a decade now and after a third stay with Darren, I have to say that this place trumps all.
Facilities are great with hot tub, tool shop to (re) build bikes, plus, superb accomodation, great food, fantastic views, and more, but what really makes this place so great is the host's attention to detail. Nothing is ever too much trouble and he raises the bar in terms of ensuring you have the best possible experience. Heinz the dog provides the 'home from home' feeling whilst Luke & Grace ensure you're never hungry or without assistance. The local trails are stunning with the full spectrum of bike parks in Chatel and Morgins nearby to wild exposed high mountain trails and deep loamy forest singletrack.
Superb! No other word for it.

“You MUST book this chalet!!”
Reviewed July 24, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Just been to stay at this beautifully kept, spacious chalet which is run to perfection by Darren and his "staff". The food, facilities, value for money and overall standard of this accomodation is second to none. There's a great hot tub at the back with a view that is out of this world with bedrooms that are kept lovely and clean. The meals that were provided were delicious and there's definitely been some weight gain!! Heinz the dog is an added bonus and is happy to go for walks with you and has the most adorable expression that will melt your heart. The lake over the road provides a welcome cooling dip if you fancy paddle boarding and then a great little bar for that welcome pint afterwards. Thank you Darren for an amazing week!!!!!!!
