The apartment is located on the ground floor of the owners chalet with a private entrance meaning guests can benefit from their wealth of local knowledge, and well as on-site assistance. Set in a fantastic position 400m from the beginners ski area, and close to the famous 14km blue piste from Flaine called "The Cascade".  The apartment offers breathtaking views of the surrounding cliffs and peaks. A short walk takes you to the nearest piste-side bar, while in the opposite direction you can reach the village centre with a grocery store and bakery, a few shops, restaurants, cafes and bars.  Should you wish to visit Samoens and Morillon, there is a free ski bus service to these resorts.

This property is privately owned and has been carefully selected to be in Alps Accommodation’s premier portfolio. It has a Sunday changeover day, however in low season and for last minute bookings, flexible arrival day and length of stay may be available. Contact us for more information.



Apartment La Tibolire is a beautifully finished 2 bedroom luxury apartment spread over a generous 70m2. When entering the apartment guests can make use of a private ski locker, with plenty more storage space in the entrance hallway, including as a 5-person ski boot warmer for that added luxury and cosy toes!

The open plan layout of the kitchen, living and dining areas produces a fantastically spacious and convivial area with panoramic views over the garden towards the mountains beyond. The kitchen is superbly equipped to a high standard, including the traditional raclette and fondue sets plus a hot stone, with plenty of space to create a delicious meal after a day on the mountains.

Located on the ground floor of the owner’s chalet in Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval, Apartment La Tibolire is an ideal year-round holiday destination.

Perfectly situated for a winter break.  The popular nursery slopes of Sixt are just 400m from the apartment. At the top of the nursery area is where you will find the stop for the free and regular ski bus linking you with the other resorts of the Grand Massif namely Samoens and Morillon.

The famous 14km Cascade piste from the top of Flaine ends just below the apartment, making it possible to ski to within 50m of your accommodation (depending on snow conditions).

In the summer months, the apartment could not be better placed with the incredible Cirque du Fer-a-Cheval and Cascade du Rouget within a few minutes' drive. Or if you’re feeling energetic you can hike to either of these destinations, taking in some spectacular scenery on your way.

We had an amazing time at La Tibolire in Sixt Fer a Cheval. Mark and Melissa are great hosts and helped us with everything from deciding what where to go, what to do, where to eat and which games to play. They walk, ski and eat in the local restaurants so they have experience and great ideas which helped us to enjoy our days even more in this beautiful part of the world. Most of what we wanted to do was a short drive or even a walk from their property. Summer in the French Alps is magic with so much to do for the whole family. The property is very clean, incredibly well equipped with every device you could want - coffee machine, stereo, televisions, DVDs, dishwasher and then the treats - a fondue pot (which we didn't use), a raclette set (which we used twice) and a bonus of some delicious vegetables from Mark's vegetable patch! We were very comfortable in the accommodation and enjoyed the outside garden with spectacular views of the mountains. We found everything as advertised on the site and were overwhelmed with the special attention received from our hosts. I thoroughly recommend the property and the area. I would certainly use Alps Accommodation in the future and would certainly return to La Tibolire. The Alps Accommodation website was very good when deciding what to do every day.

Hellmann family, Apartment la Tibolire, August 2018

Thank you very much Melissa and Mark for another stay in your beautiful chalet. I was particularly impressed with the attention to detail and all those little extras, from toilet paper to food bags to seasoning to candles and matches!  The flat was comfortable enough to be here even when unable to ski. Great hosts!

Popovich family, Apartment La Tibolire, New Year 2017/18

We would highly recommend La Tibolire. The apartment is very well equipped and has everything you need. The location and scenery of La Tibolire is perfect, a really peaceful retreat but near enough to the main town if you wanted to do more. Well worth visiting we will be returning! Melissa and Mark the owners were fantastic, really helpful and gave us lots a great advice. Thank you so much to them for letting us stay later on the Sunday and for allowing us to come earlier it made such a difference so really appreciated. We also thoroughly enjoyed the fried eggs for breakfast so please thank the chickens on our behalf! Also for all the tomatoes, beans and onions so very much appreciated and delicious. Just what we needed this Summer so many thanks.

Kirby family, Apartment La Tibolire, August 2017

Such a lovely apartment at La Tibolire, fabulous owners, very friendly, gave us lovely home produce from the garden, great to have the chickens roaming outside the chalet. Such fabulous views, beautiful walks, lovely places to visit. All had a great time, even two teenagers who can be hard to please!

Sue, Apartment la Tibolire, August 2017

We had such a lovely holiday at La Tibolire! We don't want to leave...Melissa and Mark have been fabulous hosts - veritable mines of local info! The apartment has worked so well for us as a family - with a 6 year old and 21 month old, lots of space to run around and lots of DVD's to watch - is perfect. We'll definitely be back next year, maybe sooner!

Clark family, Apartment la Tibolire, March/April 2016

Lovely, comfortable apartment - thanks Mark and Melissa. You made everything very easy from start to finish - and arranged magical conditions and sunshine on the hill!

Neil, Samantha and James, Apartment la Tibolire, March 2016

This has been a whole new experience for us as a family and Melissa and Mark have been fantastic from the start to the finish of our holiday. We absolutely love Sixt-fer-a-Cheval and the apartment is beautiful, just home from home with much needed comfy beds after a day on the slopes. We can certainly see ourselves coming back and we shall all miss the beautiful scenery, friendly people and of course the skiing/snowboarding! Thank you both for your hospitality, all your help and we can't wait until the next time we visit.

Ponting family, Apartment la Tibolire February 2016

Thanks so much for a wonderful week. The kids have thoroughly enjoyed skiing and the apartment has been fantasic. A magical Christmas. We will definitely be back. Thanks for all the little touches that really make a difference.

Gonzalez family, Apartment la Tibolire, Christmas 2015

It is evident that you care about your guests' holiday experience at La Tibolire.  The level of comfort and home from home feel of the apartment really made our skiing holiday

The Cox Family, February 2014

Mark and Melissa you made this entire visit effortless in every aspect and I hope you know how truly grateful we are to have been the recipients of such kindness

Erin & Adam Miller January 2014 

The location is really great just an hour from Geneva.  This is a magical little corner of the French Alps, perfect for beginners and children in particular.  Mark and Melissa helped us put skiing routes across the area together and ensured that we knew of the best mountain restaurants!

Parris & Woodcock, New Year 2014.

What's not to love?! Waking up to a stunning alpine setting in a well-appointed space with every need catered for with style and convenience. Not to mention excellent skiing on tap and some idyllic walks! Location, quality and comfort delivered by professional and warm hosts. Thank you Melissa and Mark!

About the owner

We are British but moved to the Giffre Valley in 2011 and have developed a life where we run a small business in France and our consultancies in the UK.  Having spent a couple of years living in Samoens we  bought a plot of land and commissioned Chalet La Tibolire which was finished in 2013.  We adore the peace and quiet of Sixt and love the real french village feel that it retains.  We live above Apartment La Tibolire so are on site to greet you on arrival and help you make the most of  your holiday in this very special part of the world.  Appartment La Tibolire has been fitted out to allow you to cook properly while on holiday, this along with an eclectic mix of DVDs and books, comfortable furnishings and our warm welcome will ensure that you love La Tibolire as much as we do.

The joy of our location is that it is short walk to a choice of restaurants, the boulangerie and the little supermarket. There are many beautiful walks and hikes easily accessible from the door.

We look forward to welcoming you to our little bit of paradise.

Melissa & Mark
