Mehdi, Chalet le Gerbera, February 2021

"Our family of four greatly enjoyed the stay at the chalet over the winter holidays. It is cozy and roomy, and has an amazing view of the alpine mountainside. We loved having the fireplace and used it everyday to keep warm and enjoy the winter atmosphere. We cooked almost every day and the kitchen provided all the needed utensils, down to an adorable cookie tin for when we made Christmas cookies. The bedrooms were very cosy, the beds were comfortable and the decor was nice and festive. There is a small library available on the second floor with multiple books for all tastes. We appreciated having streaming services available on the tv to enjoy holiday movies together. Walking in the area is great and provides nice views, there are a couple of nice villages in the area where open markets are organized every week and you can buy local cheese, fruit, vegetables and cured meats. The hosts are great and respect the guests’ privacy. We did not interact much due to social distancing recommendations. Would definitely recommend staying here!"

Viorel, Chalet le Gerbera, January 2021

"Many thanks to Paul and Hayley for welcoming us to this chalet. Everything was perfect: the warm atmosphere, the glowing fireplace and the well-equipped kitchen (we love to make small dishes and nothing was missing !!!) ... the dog from the neighbors who inevitably came offer us his ball or stick. It’s the perfect place to pamper yourself after a day enjoying the outdoors. We came specially to take a tour of Sixt and discover the Cirque ... we were amazed by the fantastic views. All that to say that we will try to come back to explore more of this magnificent piece of paradise."

Charlie, Johann and Aurélie, Chalet le Gerbera, January/February 2020

"Thank you so much Hayley and Paul. We absolutely loved our month-long stay in your delightful mountain oasis. The chalet was perfectly equipped, and the views are simply breathtaking. We return home feeling refreshed and recharged but also a little sad to leave. Thank you again."

Fisher Family, Chalet le Gerbera, August 2019

"Beautiful location and lovely hosts. Morillon was busy during half term but Chalet le Gerbera was a totally peaceful retreat. Spacious and very comfortable. Hayley and Paul on hand to answer any questions. There was nothing to fault at all. We would definitely return."

Gates Family, Chalet le Gerbera, February 2019

"Our stay here was amazing, the chalet was cosy and had so many wonderful things to do to pass the time.

Thank you for opening your wonderful home to us as we have thoroughly enjoyed it here."

The Summerscales family, Chalet le Gerbera, January 2019

"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.

Tom and family, Chalet le Gerbera, February 2018

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."

Llewelyn family, Feb 2017
