Au Balcon de Verchaix
Ranked #1 of 2 Verchaix B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Excellent hosts, a spacious and very well managed chalet in a beatiful position, a large room suitable for a small family and a very competitive price for a short break at half term. Philippe and Armelle were incredibly helpful and gracious hosts. Highly recommended.

Philippe and Arnelle make excellent hosts. The food was exceptionally good. The chalet was relatively newly built, beautifully decorated in traditional Savoyard style with great attention to detail. It was very comfortable and always lovely and warm. We spent 4 nights there in February. Our bedroom had the most wonderful view over the valley. The atmosphere was friendly and we enjoyed our evening meals conversing with our hosts and the other guests. We also thought it was extremely good value for money. We have no hesitation recommending it and intend to go back next year.

We stayed for one night and were really impressed with the quality of the accommodation. Armelle and Phillip were so incredibly helpful and friendly - Phillip made a huge effort digging our car out of the snow and the breakfast by the wood burning stove was exceptional. Overall the stay was so much better value for money than staying in one of the large hotels in Samoens etc. I strongly recommend this B&B.

We stayed for 3 nights in January, on a bed & breakfast basis. Our hosts were very friendly, spoke better much English than we did French, and made us feel at home in their beautiful chalet.
There is a spectacular view across the valley to the mountains beyond and the quiet location is very convenient for Samoens and Morillon.
