“Fantastic chalet, superb location with excellent hosts”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Just returned from a fantastic long weekend at Chalet Falcon. Having stayed in chalets since the age of 6 I have to say this is one of the best I have been fortunate enough to stay in. You could not wish to find more pleasant or attentive hosts than Sue and Dave who made us feel very welcome. They were great company and provided tasty food, not to mention the relaxing hot tub! Excellent location within walking distance to Le Grand Montets. Would be delighted to return in the future. Thankyou Valley Fever!

A friend and I stayed at Chalet Falcon in the first week of Feb. Sue and Dave were great, friendly chalet hosts and looked after us really well. Great food and plenty of it. The slow-cooked pork was to die for and the quiche was fantastic! They also took care of organising transfers and ski passes.

There was a minor issue with another group that shared the place with us. They apparently had a bit of a mix up with their transfer when they arrived, which seemed to upset them unreasonably. I see they've commented at length in their own review. This kind of characterises them perfectly. A couple of hours delay resulted in a week of moaning! Some people can't be pleased! Unfortunately, the way they treated the chalet hosts was a bit shocking, too. A pity, because Sue and Dave were really nice people, who in no way deserved that. A good thing that lot have promised never to return! :-P

Just back from a brilliant week at Chalet Falcon run by Valley Fever. Sue and Dave (the Chalet Hosts) looked after us famously - lovely, tasty, home-cooked food and plenty of it. The rooms are well-appointed considering the price-bracket and the communal areas are clean and comfortable - the hot tub on the deck with views of the mountains is a bit of a bonus too!

This really was excellent value and Valley Fever took care of all the extras - arranging transfers, ski passes, ski-hire and buses to the more remote slopes.

We'll be going back!

I had to write this review whilst in resort, to comment on what an amazing location this chalet is in. Only a couple of minutes walk to the Grand Montets lift and the ski bus on the doorstep. The chalet is excellently run and Gary was most helpful during the booking process and facilitated the single traveller arriving on a Sunday. The value for money, in my view, could not be surpassed in the Chamonix valley you should not miss an opportunity to book here.
The quality of food is excellent, thanks to Will and Sarah, and good quality wine is included, not your wine box type you get on some packages.
What makes this trip all the better are the snow conditions for this time of year, unfortunately not something the chalet host can guarantee, but being able to relax in the hot tub on the balcony after a super powder day is awesome.
Best wishes to you all
Gordon

With excellent food, very comfortable chalet surroundings (including a hot tub and log burning fire) and beautiful views this chalet is a very special place.

Gary was an a attentive host and had everything sorted for us, and we were a very late booking (about 2 days prior to leaving home). The transfers were easy and the ski passes waiting for us when we walked through the chalet door.

Argentiere is a lovely small town, with plenty of hire places (I recommend Namaste), some lovely restaurants and bars and local bus stops and ski lift. The buses are regular and free to all the local ski spots, and the snow was amazing - especially when you consider the time of year!

The chalet staff (Will and Sarah) were excellent! Always ready for a chat, and they make very delicious food, cooking cakes from scratch every day. Yum!

I look forward to coming back here!

We have stayed for 4 nights and have been very impressed. Booking was very easy and Gary kept in close contact confirming the details of our stay. Our chalet hosts, Will and Sarah were delightful. The food was of a very high standard. Unfortunately the weather and conditions were not great during our stay but Gareth and the staff did a great job maximising our skiing. Would love to come again if they let us.

Very attentive staff, excellent food & service. Gary was really helpful as was Gareth when advice was needed in iffy weather. The chalet hot tub was great. A fine base near to extensive skiing. What more do you want? JC
