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, and you'll find a ski bus just 150m away 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.

Property reviews

"Couldn’t have been better for a family of 4. Melissa and Mark were so welcoming and the apartment was perfect. Also found Alps Accommodation a great company to communicate with, polite and responsive"

Galbraith, Apartment La Tibolire, February 2024

"I don't think we have ever stayed anywhere quite so perfect : stunning location, fantastically well-equipped apartment and such generous and welcoming hosts. Great fun taking the ski lift to Samoens 1600 followed by walk to lac des Gouilles Rouges. Great walks from the door - Gorges des Tines for example. Stunning views from La Bourgeoise from the Col de Joux Plane. And not forgetting, the Cirque du Fer a Cheval! Thank you!"

Howarth, Apartment la Tibolire, July 2023

"We had a fantastic week skiing here and really enjoyed the homely comfort of this wonderful chalet, and your kind hospitality too! Eating out at the L’Auberge in Sixt was great – highly recommend it. Hope to re-visit in the Summer to enjoy all the walks you recommended. Thanks once more for a wonderful holiday."

Park Family, Apartment la Tibolire, April 2023

"This was our first holiday in the French Alps in Summer and it was wonderful! We enjoyed the hikes, the tranquillity and the beautiful landscape very much. Thank you, Mark and Melissa, for the warm welcome, for the tips about hikes and excursions, for the vegetables, and the eggs. We loved the chickens; it was a lot of fun feeding them!"

Martin and Family, Apartment la Tibolire, August 2022

"Perfection’ sums up La Tibolire! Probably the best apartment we’ve ever stayed in! Thank you, Melissa and Mark, for providing everything needed for our stay. Nothing has been missed – even fresh eggs – that made a welcome addition to breakfast. Thank you also for your invaluable locally knowledge of this stunningly beautiful environment and for just being so friendly and welcoming. We very much hope to see you again."

Smith Family, Apartment la Tibolire, July 2022

"Ideal stay at La Tibolire.  Many thanks to Melissa and Mark for their hospitality. The flat is beautiful, very practical, comfortable. We felt right at home. We will be back."

Champion, Apartment la Tibolire, February 2022

"A real holiday! Exceptional pre-stay communication, an incredible welcome, lovely little touches, a very comfortable flat and a magnificent region. Thank you, Melissa and Mark, for this wonderful place! Thanks to your beautiful and spacious apartment, we were able to share some great walks, some great evenings playing board games and some great laughs with our friends. Thank you for everything and we look forward to seeing you again!"

Claire, Apartment la Tibolire, May 2021

"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, Apartment la Tibolire, 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"

Miller, Apartment la Tibolire, 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, Apartment la Tibolire, 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!"

Precht, Apartment La Tibolire, Nov 2013

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.  Apartment 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
