“The Chalet where dreams are made!”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We visited La Bonne Vie through the end on February and into March. The Chalet was an easy drive from Geneva Airport and situated in the picturesque village of Le Chatelard.
There is a large supermarket that is just down the road from La Bonne Vie and open from 08:00-20:00. The Chalet itself was incredible with accommodation for 6 and a large dining table, spacious kitchen and huge corner sofa. There is a DVD player and sky available, so perfect for the cold winters nights with the log fire burning.
We spent a few days Skiing at the resorts, Le Aillons & Margeriaz, they were only a 15 minute drive away. They were very easy to find as are well sign posted and the ski hire and slope passes were very reasonably priced.
During our stay we also visited the towns of Chambery and Annecy, we would highly recommend both and also a trip to Le Revard to view the surrounding area.

We are a family of 6 and have stayed in Ian's chalet twice and both times we have been impressed with the quality and value for money.

“The good life”
Reviewed 20 December 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We stayed at La Bonne Vie for ten days in July 2010 and went again for two weeks in July 2011. The chalet furnished is to a very high standard, very comfortable with all mod cons. The views are even more stunning than the pictures on the website and at night the sky is amazing, the lack of light pollution means the stars really shine, we saw several shooting stars too. We have four children ranging from eight to fifteen and have stayed at several French holiday camps with all the clubs and activities they provide, so we were a bit worried that we might struggle to keep them entertained while staying at an Alpine holiday home in the summer. Glad to report there is loads to do ranging from lazing on the beach at Lake Annecy to thundering down a Luge at Semnoz, Kate and Ian have thoughtfully provided a comprehensive folder full of local attractions and there is a local Tourist Office, we went away feeling we have still barely scratched the surface. The acid test with any holiday is “would you go back?”, in our case the answer is a unanimous YES!
