We flew into Lyons, rented a car, and drove down the motorway to Les Allues. After a five hour journey caused by an insistent and frankly wrong satnav we finally got to the garden apartment. Walking in, we made a cafetiere of coffee, lit a fire, sat down in the living room, relaxed, and realised what an inspired choice we’d made. The view is stunning.
The garden apartment is warm, comfortable, quiet, and spacious with plenty of room for four adults and all the hot water you’ll ever need.
We have stayed at both the chalets here on consecutive Christmas' and can only sing praises for what we experienced.
The chalets are TOTALLY equipped, spacious, comfortable and extremely well located.
The instructions and information provided by Mary is second to none and I cannot recommend highly enough the chalets.
This year we were lucky enough to have a huge snowfall which only served to reinforce the beauty of the village and also the magnificent views over the valley from the chalet.
If time allowed we would be booking for next year.............
Champetre is a beautiful chalet with incredible views and everything you could wish for in terms of luxury, equipment and space. Les Allues has a perfectly good local shop with groceries, fresh milk and local treats. We had all we needed to cook good food every night without having to haul a load up from Meribel or Albertville. Mary, the owner, is patient, enthusiastic and someone you feel you've met before. She gets back to you with answers very quickly and makes sure you have all you need and checks again that it's all as you want it.
The only frustration we had was working with TripAdvisor regarding the deadline for the balance. They cancelled our booking before the date was due. However, Mary sorted the whole thing out and TripAdvisor honoured our booking very quickly albeit with no apology. I am also dismayed at the lack of speed that my deposit is being returned to me by TripAdvisor. It's released after 2 weeks which in my opinion is long enough, but I will not receive it for up to another 10 days. I feel this is not a good end to our very relaxed holiday.
What can we say? Perfect from start to finish from the lovely and helpful owner to the beautiful chalet complete with perfect view! Very well equipped. My favorite is the fire ideal after a day on the slopes. Beds are comfy the showers are hot and the bath great for a soak. Short walk to bus or gondola. Village has all you need to enjoy your stay. Everyone is really friendly. We were four adults and two children and honestly had one of the best holidays ever. Mary the owner makes everything so easy she is helpful and really lovely. You just need to pack your clothes and turn up... A home from home. The chalet is lovely and warm too very pretty with breathtaking views which can be enjoyed from the chalet or your very own balcony! We would love to come back at any time of year. We felt it was a perfect combination easy access to other villages but plenty for the family in the village of led allues. We drove from Lyon which was super easy. You could stay without a car just depends on your preference. Thanks Mary for a wonderful and memorable stay it was simply divine
Overall a very well furnished apartment with excellent all round facilities, it is spacious and comfortable. Great views from the balcony of the valley and mountains really enjoyable with a cold beer in the evenings.
It is ideally positioned for sight seeing the local area, we had some lovely days out seeing lakes and waterfalls. Early June can be quiet but makes travelling around easy, eating out can be a little challenging but we found enough restaurants for a weeks stay and they are quite good.
We stayed here the first week of February, very good communication with the owner Mary prior to our stay, the extra's we had requested were all there, the chalet was very inviting with views that were breathtaking, kitchen well stocked, plenty of firewood, wonderful week made only better when the snow arrived.

We had a fabulous week in this wonderful chalet. Truly, one of the best places I have stayed in. Comfortable and relaxing from the moment we arrived thanks to the owner's thoughtful attention to every detail: plenty of logs for a glorious fire, the best selection of glasses in a self catered chalet I have ever seen, a kitchen equipped with everything you might need, wonderful sofas to collapse onto, brilliant location in Les Allues, an excellent list of recommendations for restaurants, apres-ski, ski hire and lessons provided by Mary... Everything was absolutely fabulous. We will definitely return.
