“Picture perfect location and every need catered for”
Reviewed July 24, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Penthouse Caribou is a perfect place to stay.

It is in a wonderful location. The flat is huge with all the rooms fitted out to a very high specification - and it even has a pool table. The town nearby has everything you could need - even down to a cimema. And Jacqui is the perfect hostess. She looked after us very well - cooking meals, booking restaurants and even driving us up the mountain so we could launch ourselves down a zipwire.

Would thorougly recommend the Penthouse to anyone looking to stay in this area.

“Simply Fabulous!”
Reviewed July 23, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My colleagues and I recently spent the weekend at Penthouse Caribou for our work getaway. Every single one of us loved it! Jacqui was a wonderful host, we felt welcomed and relaxed the moment we walked through the door. I will definitely be back!

“Perfection down to the last detail”
Reviewed July 22, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Had a brilliant stay at Penthouse Caribou.

The chalet is spacious without feeling too vast, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. It offers beautiful views as well with a refreshing river nearby In which to swim.

Jacqui was the perfect hostess. She was extremely accommodating and looked after the lot of us superbly. Jacqui put on an impressive spread of local delicacies for lunch and breakfast and was always on hand with brilliant suggestions of where to go and what to do in the area - from dinner spots and beautiful walks to zip wire adventures.

Lovely spot for both winter and summer. I highly recommend Penthouse Caribou to anyone looking for a retreat.

“What a wonderful surprise!”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had driven to penthouse caribou in our Caterham cars having stopped one night en route. We all had expectations of what a holiday apartment would be like but Penthouse Caribou will exceeded all your expectations.
It is spacious with large comfortable sofas , large dining room area , five double bedrooms all with private bathrooms. The views are spectacular from the large balcony where there are table and chairs to have pre dinner drinks before heading out to restaurants within easy walking distance.
Martin and Jacquie are great hosts, nothing was too much trouble to make our stay first class.
We enjoyed driving the passes and visiting villages in the vicinity. There are driving routes of various lengths that should suit all drivers and passengers.

“We will return”
Reviewed July 18, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The chalet is excellent...spacious and very well appointed. Jacqui and Martin were the perfect hosts showing us the surrounding area which has outstanding beauty. There are very good restaurants in the local area within walking distance. The chalet would provide a good base for a cycling, walking, skiing or driving holiday.

“Amazing chalet, great roads for driving and exceptional hosts”

We have just had a driving tour to the Alps in our Caterham car. We stayed at the Penthouse Caribou with three other couples who drove their beloved little cars out there as well. The chalet is exceptional...spacious, welcoming, beautifully presented and immaculately clean. There is everything you could wish for - large and comfortable lounges, a large dining room table to enjoy breakfast and dinner and a large balcony for when the weather is fine and you can stand and gaze at the mountains whilst sipping a drink. We occupied four of the five bedrooms...all have private bathroom facilities, the fifth room has a bathroom through a door close by, and robes were provided in this room to save anyone's blushes. The bedrooms are large (the chalet can sleep up to 16 people with sharing of rooms) and well appointed in tasteful furnishings and the bathrooms spotlessly clean with extremely powerful and hot showers which is a real bonus in any apartment. Hair driers are provided as is an extension lead taking English plugs on a French socket adaptor so there is no problem charging up any phones, lap tops etc. Jacqui and Martin are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Some route maps had been organised by Martin and the drives were spectacular taking in stunning scenery, lovely windey roads and stopping at various points of interest along the way. As a car group or biking group, there is a abundance of choice in the length of drives you can do in and around the area or to go further afield. Martin and Jacqui have an extensive knowledge of the area and can help point you in the direction of restaurants, shopping and most importantly for us, petrol stations! We would thoroughly recommend staying at The Penthouse Caribou if you are on a driving or biking holiday....most importantly, there are facilities to be able to clean your car or bike downstairs. We had an amazing time with our friends and our little cars and we hope to return next year for another tour and maybe a ski trip as well.
