“Romantic Week End”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2013

Probably one of the most romantic place I ever been ! The infrastructures are great, the view on the mountains stuning and the services excellent and discreat. You feel at home in no time, or wish your home be the same ... Private theatre, room service with local food, full range of DVD, sauna and a spa on each terrasse.

Room Tip: I would recomand the Clarines Chalet !

Stayed 1 week end in the suite baroque.

Upside: Great staff, great food, great jacuzzi evenings under clear skies, great view on a little clearing with dears and other animals passing by. Also nice bed with a funky tv set-up and a the suite has real charm.

downside: Suite much smaller than the pics may have you believe with a toilet door opening up right into the suite. You better be comfortable with whomever you r travelling! Also, the baroque style interior is leaning heavy on the tacky side.

conclusion: Most romantic getaway I can remember, I recommend.

My husband and I spent 5 nights in Clarines chalet. The grounds were bursting with colorful flower planters and surrounded by large fir trees. The fairytale tone is consistent throughout without fail. Our terrace had a picnic table for 2 or 3 people, 2 loungers and a hot tub. The full view of the Mont Blanc range is breathtaking. It was easy to relax on the terrace with the quiet privacy, mountain views, and the village of Chamonix stretched out far below in the valley. The chalet is two stories, charming, clean, and small. The ground floor consists of two rooms, a kitchen/dining room & bathroom. The bedroom upstairs was comfortable for us. Please understand that the stairs are steep and the ceiling is low. All rooms are fully equipped & absolutely charming but small. The chef made us dinner which was served on our terrace. The food was fantastic. They delivered bread, OJ and cheese to us each morning. These were fresh products from the local market! We had lunch in the 17th century dinning room. The raclette, homemade chocolates and ice cream were out of this world. Philllipe and his staff were very friendly and professional. We couldn’t ask for anything more and if we had they would have figured out how to get it to us. Chamonix and Argentiere are both very close for supplies, eateries, and shopping. The fabulous service encompassed in the most charming ambiance means we can’t wait to go back!

I was looking for a special place for my husband's birthday and this delivered at all levels - location, accommodation and service. We stayed in les trolles which is a beautiful chalet, exquisitely furnished but also comfortable and well equipped. The chalet has a sunny terrace and stunning view across to mont blanc. At night all the chalets are illuminated by pretty blue garlands - I felt as if I had entered an enchanted fairyland. Our children were equally mesmerised, especially by the beautiful wooden beds. Philippe went out of his way to customise our stay and provide a birthday surprise meal for my husband. We dined in the chalet courtesy of the resident chef and enjoyed a delicious meal of scallops, veal and a sumptuous cake, complete with candles! Breakfast of your choice is delivered to your door - tasty croissants and freshly squeezed orange juice.... This is a special place, summed up by my sons comment when we left "why can't we stay here for ever mummy?!" . Can't wait to return when snow is on the ground, when I am sure it will be nothing short of a winter wonderland!

Chalet Philippe is a collection of 1 bedroom Mazots tucked away in a small mountain village "Lavancher" between Argentiere and Chamonix. We have visited Chamonix lots of times over the past 10 years but nothing has compared with the experience of staying at Chalet Phillipe. It is totally tranquil, the sleep quality is superb, the views fantastic, accomodation warm and cozy and all the staff were friendly. The mazots are decorated in a timeless manor with lots of Alpine antiques combined with all the mod cons you need on a holiday i.e. jacuzzi, wifi, HD TV, expresso coffee machines etc. We never experienced the meal service the facility offers as we spent most evenings soaking up the atmosphere in Chamonix Town however the menu did look appealing.

Phillipe the owner knows the Chamonix Valley well so if you need any advice he will point you in the right direction. Their are great trailed walks into either Chamonix or Argentiere right outside the property. Looking forward to returning next year.
