Our clients stay at Chalet Tissieres during their mountaineering courses/holidays during the summer seasons in Cham. We've been working with Renske at the chalet for several years now and it's been a great experience - guests have a great time staying in wonderful surroundings with good food, surrounded by like-minded people. It's a cool place - away from the hustle and bustle of Cham, but not so far if you do want to head into town. For us - the chalet is easy to deal with and flexible. Cheers Renske!
Arrived to be told that there was no reservation, eventually found under incorrect name and then put us in same room as they were overbooked so could not provide the separate rooms we had reserved.
Room situation resolved for second night though when we went to eat there were insufficient plates and cutlery. By the time the young hostess resolved this, the buffet was more or less cleared by the other diners. Not offered drinks or any other option for food.
Generally quite tired and seemingly unloved location, not in any hurry to return any time soon.
Great locality near Chamonix. Nice view of Mont Blanc from the chalet. Good choice for one night. Breakfast is simple but good. The communication with owner was perfect,she explained us everything in advance.
Don't confuse what you see on the website which is all about the luxury chalet. In summer as stated this is a basic hostel function. No reception. small rooms with no toilet in many cases, although they do have a sink. There are inadequate toilets and showers when the lodgings are full. The breakfast is basic and served 7 til 9 each day.
Different staff appear on different days. The evening meal , always on time 1900 hours is adequate and is 20 euros not the price on the web site.
We used the chalet as a base for climbing. One time we were promised that the gear we left would be securely stored but it seemed to be where we left it in the hallway when we came back 2 days later. There is a secure garage for storage although we didn't find this out until later.
Our room had not key for two nights.
There are some en-suite rooms available and one rooms with 8 beds in it .
Overall it felt like a English youth hostel.
Staff friendly and helpful
We were a group of 35 friends who stayed Chalet Tissiers and the Tiki Lodge for 4 days to celebrate my 30th birthday. The booking process went very smoothly and I got very quick response to all my questions I had prior to arrival.
The location of the chalets is just perfect. Incredible view from the balcony where we had most of our dinners served. The three three course dinners we had at the chalet were delicious, good value for money. The staff were very friendly and service minded and did everything they could to make sure we had a nice stay! The rooms were nice, and the common spaces are very large and social and perfect for a large group like we were.
The breakfasts were simlple but tasty, there could have been a bit more greens to put on the sandwiches and a whole grain alternative to the white bread.
All in all a very nice Place to stay, especially as a large group! We are already planning a new trip for next summer.
I have rented this beautiful chalet for a week for a family get-together of 17 people.
We loved the chalet's atmosphere. It is super cosy and family-friendly. It is great to sit together by the fire place while the kids playing around after ski. The food was freshly made each day especially for us by Sean (you are a great cook!). It was very appetizing and delicious & the wines Renske picked were were just great.
The chalet is located 10 min, by car from the ski resort, and 10 min by car from Chamonix town center. the location is perfect. It has a small Jacuzzi outside the property which the kids loved (& a small sauna which the grown up loved). Everything was ready on time - breakfast, the delicious dinner, the transport back and forth from the ski resort ... just perfect!
Graceful Lauren took care of us and drove us to the ski resorts each morning and picked us up at the end of each day. And even once when one of the kids did not feel well - Damian came right away to pick her up from town and brought her back to the chalet with no hesitation.
The kids & us loved skiing, eating and being together as well as visiting Chamonix town center which is an extremely beautiful (bigger than I expected) & graceful town with many lovely shops (which was perfect for my mother who is not skiing...).
I have never experienced such a caring atmosphere. It really warmed our hearts and we felt at home. You can really feel the love and care of all the people involved in this creation.I want to thank Renske, Damian, Sean and Lauren for having us and taking care of us in such a pleasant way. I truly recommend this chalet from the bottom of my heart. Enjoy! :)
We stayed in this chalet with 23 people for a five day trip. We found the space, food, and support team to be excellent. It was certainly cozy for 23 adults, but worth it for the excellent communal space. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
