Reviews

A fabulous week in the sunshine - 7 adults and 5 children and a great time was had by all! Can't wait to come back!

The Penthouse, March 2017

An excellent weeks stay at the Penthouse, 10 adults and 4 children.  Breath taking views, great position at the bottom of the slopes.  Lots of fresh snow at the beginning of the week and sunshine at the end - what's not to like!

Cutts party, The Penthouse, February 2017

12 work colleagues enjoyed using this Penthouse as their base.  It was a cosy place to chill out after a hard days skiing!  The convenience of shops and to the slopes was a godsend.  The views from the apartment were breath taking!  Merci beaucoup. Au revoir.

Edwards party, The Penthouse, January 2017

Grandparents, parents, children, great aunt and uncle all had a wonderful week in this beautiful well equipped penthouse.  The week passed by far too quickly.  Thank you.  We will come back.

Moss party, The Penthouse, January 2017

We were here in the first week of January 2017.  Enjoyed ourselves very much.  Great service, perfect happy reception on the day of arrival.   Enjoyed the luxury and the skiing.  We are sure to return again sometime.

Jonkman party, January 2017

This is our third season at the Penthouse and it never fails to exceed our expectations!  Beautiful and comfortable, perfect for our family, we always have a fabulous time.  A fantastic place full of wonderful memories.

Griffin party, December 2016

Our group had a fabulous time, the apartment worked so well for us on so many levels. The way it has been furnished and everything made available to guests is a five star service in our eyes. We must compliment the property manager as well, I rang him far too many times but his information and recommendations were just so good that we utilised the resource. Both the owner and property manager have ensured we have had one of the best holidays away. It really has been a pleasure and so much fun. We really hope to return, possibly next year and if not we will be joining you for some skiing in 2018. Many thanks again for allowing us the use of your splendid property and chalet manager.

Aspin family, The Penthouse, August 2016

This was the most amazing place, views and light perfect, very comfortable for 14 people, well equipped, peaceful, practical and superb position, skiing straight to the door! We'll definitely be returning for our next celebration! Thank you Le Penthouse Morillon 1100

The Trimming Party, Penthouse, March 2016

We loved the apartment throughout. What a fantastic location with wonderful views. The slopes, ski school, hire shop, pub, patisserie and supermarket only being a stones throw away made life so easy for us with small children. The apartment itself was very clean, and far better equipped than any we've had before. The kitchen facilities and equipment were perfect for self-catering for a large group, and the entertainment equipment just wonderful. eg. Wii with games, DVDs, boardgames and toys. The Molton Brown toiletries were a nice touch too.

Leister, Penthouse, January 2014

Beautiful apartment, good aspect-location. Well equipped, especially kitchen. Logs welcome and other facilities good (e.g. welcome pack). We had a great holiday, many thanks.

Hope, The Penthouse, Dec 2011

Just a quick note to say thanks for looking after us in the lead up to and during our stay. We had a fantastic time, the apartment couldn’t have been better. We’ve had top drawer service from you guys so be assured of our repeat business...see you next year!!
