“Fantastic location and Chalet”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had an amazing 12 nights at Le Chatox. The accommodation cannot be faulted it was well equipped, comfortable and clean. The location was perfect with easy access to Lake Annecy and Lac du Bourget. Some superb mountain cycle routes which amazing views of Mont Blanc. The Chalet is also perfect for relaxing days with a great balcony and patio area and local walks/cycle rides. With 2 teenage children the table tennis table was a bonus and they even got the chess board out!!! We hired a motor boat and pedalos at Lake Annecy and Chatillon at Lac du Bourget, cycled around Lake Annecy, had some great meals in Annecy in the evenings as well as 4 hours of zip wiring, climbing ladders and walking across platforms across the valley at Allions-Margeriaz 1000!
We would love to visit Le Chatox in the winter and try out some of the local skiing!

Thanks Vicki ! So pleased you all had a great family holiday at Le Chatox. The skiing is pretty good and perfect for beginners and intermediates. Its also only 100euro for a weeks lift pass for two resorts or pay as you go and try out all 5 in Les Bauges ! You can also go snow shoeing up the local mountains with a picnic which we love doing. Ski de fond (cross country) is also popular. Our friends run the local hire shop from Les Aillons. You'll be amazed how much cheaper Les Bauges is to the big resorts. We've done them both, and you can guess which we prefer, but just check the reviews from our ski guests below! As you've already been 'Chatoxed' just contact us direct if you have dates in mind. February half term is always first to go and 2017 was booked way back so get in early if you'd like 2018. We'd love to welcome you all back !

“Superb accommodation in fantastic, unique location.”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our family are very much francophiles and widely travelled across France over the last 30 years.This location and accommodation are gems to be explored. The chalet is second to none, a superbly equipped, home from home, with all mod cons and a perfect mountain outlook. The owners have taken considerable care to facilitate visitors to advantage. We enjoyed high mountain viewing and walking via ski lifts(Mont Pelat/ Mont Revard), lakeside walks, high quality cycling, swimming, canoeing, returning for self catered evening meals using the excellent kitchen and dining areas. Lakes Annecy and Bourget and local environs within 30/40 minutes cater for all needs and ages. Unreserved highly recommended.

Many thanks for you review Stephen. We agree that the area is a hidden gem resting just above Annecy - an Island in the sky! Les Bauges is wonderful all year round. Consider yourselves Chatoxed and you are very welcome to return! best wishes Paul and Wendy

“Fabulous chalet for a family holiday in a stunning location”
Reviewed 11 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Can't fault Le Chatox, loads of room in a holiday let that feels so homely. For a family with children (age 13 and 10) it was great....swimming in the lakes, walking cross country for a picnic, sightseeing in historic villages, canal trips and at the end of the day a chalet to come home to and relax. We all loved it!

“Truly Fabulous”
Reviewed 1 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

people found this review helpful

This has it all. A fabulous house in a wonderful location. What a hidden beauty. We walked, cycled around Lake Annecy and generally explored.. . oh and spent quite a lot of money in the lovely shops in Annecy! What made it special was returning to Le Chatox at the end of the day to a comfortable and superbly equipped home from home. Opening the red wine and taking in the fabulous wall to wall views from the balcony or lounge.

Wendy and Paul make it extra special and easy, making sure that you have all the information you could possibly need before you go and when you are there.

It is really not surprising that people return again and again and this will be the first of many visits I am sure.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

“Excellent House in the Rhone-Alpes”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is our second stay at Le Chatox. This is a very well equipped and comfortable house that is also smart and nicely designed. Our main activities on holiday are walking and for me road cycling. This is a great location for both. There are some great walks both demanding, mildly challenging and more leisurely in a truly beautiful part of France and the Alpes. The views from the summit walks are breath taking. Rides can be started from the house which are described in the house information and marked up on maps by the owner who is a keen cyclist. My rides I kept to around 1.5 to 2.5 hours and the scenery is spectacular. The Tour went through the village in 2013 and you can do parts of, or all of the stage if you are up for it! The house sits on the edge of the town of Le Chatelard which has a convenient supermarket, filling station and few restaurant options nearby. Chez Cyril in Le Noyer is particularly good. I would thoroughly recommend this accommodation which is appointed to high standards.

“Our fourth visit...it's perfect!”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have now stayed here 4 times, and for a very good reason - it's a lovely place to stay! The house is modern, spotlessly clean and very well-equipped, and the view from the balcony is fantastic. You can sit-out in the sun all day, then take-in fantastic views of the night sky. It is in a great location for walking and relaxing, and the cycling is brilliant. Lots of tough routes on the doorstep, but, equally, there are many easier rides to be had.
We visited Annecy twice whilst we were there, and it is such a lovely town in a stunning location. Market day is very busy, but parking is easy, and it is a great 20 mile ride around the lake.
The swimming lake is only a 5 minute drive from the house, and there are plenty of good quality restaurants nearby. It really is a great place to stay for families, or couples, and we are already planning a return in the near future.

“Very comfortable accommodation in stunning location ”
Reviewed 19 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We've just spent a fantastic week staying at Le Chatox.

It was our first family trip to the area, and there was something for everyone. The kids loved the swimming in the nearby lake, and taking advantage of the games at the chalet. Mum loved visiting the local towns, especially Annecy. Whilst Dad found the cycling out of this world.

Le Chatox truly was a home from home, with everything you could need to make your stay perfect.

I'm already missing having a glass of wine on the balcony, looking out across the mountains....

Thanks you for your wonderful review. Our home from home is now a place for you to treat as 'home' should you return. You were perfect guests and an example to others that there's something for husbands and wives, children and friends. The skiing in winter is fab. (just saying!!)
