“Perfect Palatial Alpine Retreat”
Reviewed 19 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We had a wonderful stay at Penthouse Caribou. This extensive top floor of the chalet is beautifully appointed, spacious, and ideal for a group or family holiday. Penthouse Caribou offers stunning views throughout the property, whilst managing to feel both spacious and cosy at the same time. The log fire was a welcome sight after a long day on the slopes!

With piste access five minutes walk from the door, this property was very well suited for those skiing for the first time, bus links allow excellent access along the valley to the Portes du Soleil slopes and Chatel. The village has an excellent patisserie and plenty of bars and restaurants, whilst never feeling overcrowded or over-commercialised.

I would highly recommend booking, and hope to do so again in the near future.

“Excellent chalet and brilliant location”
Reviewed 19 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

The chalet fitted the 19 of us comfortably with space for everyone and their luggage easily, it was beautifully decorated and fitted with all of the entertainment systems anyone could wish for! Just 10 minutes (in ski boots) from the nursery slopes and a private ski lock-up room made the experience as a beginner so much easier than hauling gear onto the buses.

“A great chalet experience”
Reviewed 18 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Penthouse Caribou met all expectations, and surpassed many as well! Beautifully alpine, cleverly practical and spacious to boot, I especially enjoyed the log fires and cosy living areas after a long day enjoying the great slopes in Portes du Soleil/Chapelle d'Abondance.

“What an amazing Place to stay !”
Reviewed 15 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Penthouse Caribou is wonderfully situated with easy access to the slopes and fabulous views of the mountains. The chalet is amazingly spacious, comfortable and homely with hosts who make your stay very welcoming. There is so much terrain to explore and it's great for all levels and abilities. We would definitely recommend staying here and will be back.
