X family at chalet Maigret/Clouseau
Thank you for responding to the request for scales for the kitchen. Your flexibility on the day of our departure was VERY much appreciated.
Overall we were delighted the chalet and by Chinaillon and the Grand Bornand slopes (so much so that we didn’t go to Les Aravis despite having bought the inclusive pass) and would love to come again

De Turbeville family chalet Maigret/Clouseau 27/01 to 3/02/13
Chalet extrêmement bien équipé et décoré avec goût créant une ambiance
plutôt luxueuse. Le ski-in, ski-out est un avantage très appréciable. On aurait apprécié un meilleur éclairage dans les chambres mais c’est vraiment le seul b-molle.
Famille Tew du 23 au 30 décembre 2012
Très bon accueil de David et de son équipe! Merci beaucoup aussi au propriétaire de nous avoir offert du vin, c’est vraiment très sympathique!!Très bien de faire un petit ménage en cours de semaine! On adore le Grand Bornand, et on adore ce chalet! Donc on revient l’an prochain. CQFD! Un endroit super, une localisation exceptionnelle sur les pistes, et un accueil très bien organisé. Bravo!
Famille X. hiver 2012

OUR FAVOURINTE SKI IN SKI OUT DRIVE IN DRIVE OUT CHALET IN THE ALPS
We have stayed in lots of different chalets in Chinaillon because we love the resort for family skiing.
This is our absolute favourite as it is right on the green slope which is great for everyone but especially kids going for ski lessons.
The chalet is lovely, comfortable lounge and plenty of good accommodation if you are staying with friends. Lots of bath/shower rooms so no issues when you get off the slopes.
We have stayed here four times over the years if fact only going elsewhere when it was already booked.
The chalet was perfect. Nice and homely, always warm, great facilities (kitchen equipment, books, washing, bath, internet).The location couldn’t be any better, a couple of minutes out the door and your on the piste which makes it easy to keep coming in and out for the toilet, food or drink. It’s also great to watch others come down by sitting on the balcony. From the other side you have views of the village and mountains-which look incredible early morning with the sun on the tips of the mountain.
What I saw of the village is nice with friendly people. Authentic over Christmas and new year with the singers and live music above the local shop.
What I loved best is the homely feel of the chalet, and being right next to the piste. The bit I most disliked was leaving!

AWESOMECHALET IN A GREAT LOCATION
Thanks for a superb week. The 2 chalets worked brilliantly as one large one for our group of 4 families. The location is perfect with a green slope right on the doorstep giving access to lifts taking you up to whole of the mountain. Lessons for the kids start after a 2 minute ski down in the morning and the excellent bakery is only a 5 minute walk away in the morning for fresh croissants. We’ll be back next year!
Matt Cheltenham 19/4/11
All 8 kids and 8 adults had a fabulous time! The double chalet meant we had acres of space and oh, so convenient for the slopes! Trip out the boot room door and onto the green which takes you down to the lifts. Supermarkets, bars and cafes/restaurants all within easy walking distance. Oh and all within 45 mins drive from Geneva…All round brill!
