Reviews

We have thoroughly enjoyed staying in your delightful Chalet le Gerbera - a perfect alpine retreat 'en famille'. The chalet is equipped with everything we could possibly need for our stay in the mountains and the log fire was a welcome comfort each evening. A truly magical spot from which to explore this wonderful region and savour in all it has to offer. Heartfelt thanks to Hayley and Paul for sharing your home.

Simmons family, Chalet le Gerbera, March 2018

We have had an amazing stay here! The chalet is beautiful and in such a stunning location with super views. The snow was really great, especially up the mountain. The skiing has been great and we have had beautiful sunshine to make our stay even better! Thanks so much for the amazing chalet, we have had a great time! Thanks again.

Tom and family, Chalet le Gerbera, February 2018

Our experience of Alps Accommodation is excellent, they are friendly, helpful and professional. We stayed at Chalet Gerbera for four weeks, it was like a home from home. Hayley and Paul, the owners, couldn’t have been more helpful. Looking forward to returning again soon.

Carole and David, Chalet le Gerbera, January 2018

This is a fantastic cosy chalet near Morillon. We really enjoyed our stay. The service provided by Paul and Hayley is exceptional! The facilities in the chalet are great... it was perfect!

Bong Family, Chalet le Gerbera, New Year 2017/18

I wanted to let you and Paul know that we absolutely loved your chalet, you've clearly thought of everything! Despite some wet weather we had a great few days (highly recommend rafting in the rain!).  We cannot fault the whole experience of Alps Accommodation and would warmly recommend you to all our friends! We wish you both well.

Chin Family, Chalet le Gerbera, August 2017

We've had a great week at Le Gerbera! Great recommendations for hikes in the chalet's guest book. We also did Grand Balcon du Sud from Chamonix on Paul's recommendation - great views of Mont Blanc and the cable car does most of the climbing for you! We treated ourselves on the last night to a meal at Le Monde a L'Envers - really tasty, and great if you want a break from all the cheese! Thanks for a great stay!

Jen, Rob, Clare and Adam, Chalet le Gerbera, August 2017

A great stay at Chalet le Gerbera - A beautiful chalet with a perfect location for all of the activites this area has to offer. We did some lovely hikes over our stay - Refuge de Salles, Le Cirque-du-fer-a-cheval, and even just walking along the river to Samoens is beautiful. All in all, a great trip and I look forward to my next break at Le Gerbera!

Whipp party, Chalet le Gerbera, July 2017

Beautiful location, so tranquil and views were wonderful. Chalet le Gerbera was fantastic and really well equipped. Probably the cleanest place we have ever stayed too. Water was always hot, and towels very fluffy. Paul and Hayley were great hosts, helping with whatever we needed. We only stayed for 4 days but wish it was longer. We were 3 adults and 2 little children.

Taylor family, Chalet le Gerbera, April 2017

A truly beautiful chalet. It made our holiday and we all loved it. The fire was wonderful and the beds deliciously comfortable. The chalet is light and full of special little touches that made me wish we were able to spend more time there (books, the Wii, films, Morton Brown toiletries). It is really cosy. Paul and Hayley were very responsive and available to help when needed with good advice and tips/local knowledge which was so useful. We were right in the heart of things in many ways, so close to Samoens and Morillon, though could equally escape back to our tranquil retreat after a long day on skis. It felt like real France too. Stunning views. Just lovely.
