Stayed here winter and summer and it does not disappoint! Works really well with a group of friends or families, the accommodation is huge with plenty of space to chill, a large mezzanine, snooker table and tv area. Bedrooms are all spacious and of good quality with fantastic view of the slopes and down the valley. Large south facing balconies a great place to spend time. The village is very pretty with traditional houses and working farms, lots of excellent restaurants to choose from, slopes can be reached via a short walk and in the summer lots of walks from the penthouse. Would love to stay again....
Located in beautiful La Chapelle d'abondance, this apartment (which is so big it feels like you're in huge chalet) was great for myself and my group of friends who decided to head out to the Alps for a spot of skiing.
The apartment itself had lots of open plan areas, along with some great nooks and crannies for some peaceful solitude. The huge dining table meant we could all sit together for breakfasts and our evening dinners (well the ones we had in). The bedrooms were really big with comfy beds and many had en-suites.
A apartment is located close to some local French restaurants and bars oozing plenty of character.
There is the local 'Cret Beni' slope within walking distance of the apartment, then the porte du soleil region is accessible 10 minutes up the road by car or the frequent busses.
We chose to hire a car from Geneva airport, which we found really useful for exploring further regions of the porte du soleil, which covers pistes that are within France, Italy and Switzerland.
All in all a great all round holiday was had by us all.
Fantastic return trip to Caribou with a group of friends. The high standards expected from previous visits are maintained with some positive changes thrown in. We mixed entertaining ourselves in the chalet with trips to Fer Rouge and Chatel. Our main purpose for visiting was to ski and we managed plenty of this in the extensive ski area, including a wonderful day in Switzerland.
We stayed a week in the chalet with friends to celebrate my husband´s birthday.
The chalet is very spacious with 5 bed- and bathrooms, a nice fireplace and pool table. There is also a good equipped kitchen, but we also went out a few times for dinner in nearby restaurants (we recommend Les Gentianettes). Access to Chatel (with access to Portes du Soleil) ski resort is easy by car.
Great place if you want to have a relaxing stay with quick access to a big ski resort!
A fun week away at Penthouse Caribou. The place perfectly catered for the 15 of us. Great restaurants a short walk away and easy to get to the slopes (very easy to get to the big wide slopes at the top of Panthiaz bubble which are perfect on a powder day!). Liked the big communal areas and spacious rooms. A really unique place, have already booked in for next year!
We stayed there as a group for 6 days and it was a great experience. The place is massive and it was easy to loose friends even if were 11 people staying at Penthouse Caribou. I would definitely recommend this place for a large group of people as it has a lot of bedrooms, fully fitted big kitchen and dining table as well as large lounge areas. The house and the views from it are incredible.
Stayed in Jan for a week at Caribou, fantastic chalet and facilities for great value. The llocation provides great options for a range of ski areas all easily accessible.
The chalet itself has stunning views on all sides of the hills and valley, and is close to a number of options for food/drink within the village.
Highly recommended for its range of accommodation all with great entertainment, and warm setting!
