“Faultless”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

I stayed at Penthouse Caribou with a group of friends and cannot recommend highly enough, the penthouse is 5* in every way. The accomodation is very beautifully decorated and nothing has been forgotten about when it comes facilities and equipment. The whole place is like a tardis with rooms and offshoots hidden away, giving peace and space to those who require it, yet the communal areas are perfect for large parties to get together and discuss the adventures of their day with a fabulous fire place taking centre stage. The penthouse is also perfectly located with direct access to the slopes and just a short, walkable distance from the village itself where fabulous bars and restaurants await, as well as the other necessary outlets should you need, chemist etc.
We were lucky enough to enjoy a local Christmas market and the fabulous city of Montreux is just a short drive away, definitely worth a trip.
Jacqui and Martin, the owners of Penthouse Caribou, couldn't have been more helpful, from the initial enquiry made right through to tips and hints on what to see and how to get there.
They have a beautiful property and really were the best hosts, we can't wait to return soon.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 29 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

I stayed here in early December with a group of friends. This is a beautiful penthouse in the centre of La Chappelle. Spacious accommodation presented to a very high standard which is ideal for both large or smaller groups. Stunning views from the windows and balcony. There are good restaurants & bars near by. This is the perfect location for both skiers and non skiers alike. We travelled into Switzerland to a nearby spa for a blissful afternoon relaxing in the thermal waters and Montreux for the Xmas markets. I can highly recommend the train trip up to the top of the mountain to see Santa Claus ....perfect for kids and breathtaking views. Overall I can highly recommend.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 9 December 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed at Penthouse Caribou for a week in February 2014. The penthous is huge, beds very comfortable and the fireplace was fabulous!! Just what you need at the end of a long day skiing (or learning to ski as I was!!) Bathrooms were clean, kitchen had all the basics and the lift to the top floor was very convenient.

Fantastic location - you can walk to the slopes and sit on the balcony and enjoy the view.

“Fabulous in the summer - can't wait to check it out in the winter.”
Reviewed 15 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My expectations are top end but this apartment surpassed my highest hopes.
The owners were most helpful and obliging and the apartment was luxurious in every aspect.
The cleanliness and presentation second to none. Why hadn't I found this sooner?
The views from nearly every room were magnificent.
The area is perfect for all outdoor pursuits and although probably a once only experience, I can recommend the Fantasticable in Chatel. The fabulous restaurants in the village are well worth a visit, Les Cornettes and Clos Savoyard in particular.
I will be back in the winter as I must experience the log fire in action.

Liked best: Relaxing with music and a glass of wine in the bath, off the master bedroom, with a view of Cret Beni.
Liked least: The lift, as I prefer to use the stairs so I have an excuse to eat and drink more!

“Big enough for 18, and fantastic views”
Reviewed 13 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Stayed for a week with friends in August.
This place is stunning, the views absolutely take your breath away.
There's easy access (by driving) to various places as well as La Chapelle having everything you need to get quickly (food, clothes shops, restaurants, pharmacy, post office, etc.)
Plenty of gorgeous walks of varying difficulty around. Make sure you get up a chair lift at some point, even just the ride up is exciting.
The apartment itself is beautifully done, with so much room that 18 of us comfortably slept (all with beds) and lounged when the alpine rain storms hit. The kitchen is small but well-equipped, and if you were in a big apartment you ought to share the cooking anyway so the size doesn't matter ;)

I had an amazing time with brilliant friends in a stunningly beautiful location. Thank you, Mr Hay-Plumb and co!

“Excellent property in a wonderful location”
Reviewed 13 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Caribou in the summer of 2014. The owners were courteous and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The penthouse itself is luxurious and spacious, with great views of the surroundings. All of the rooms were spotless and very well maintained. The area nearby was beautiful, with great walks and activities available whilst being close enough to nearby towns to have wall necessary conveniences within travelling distance. I couldn't recommend the area and more importantly Penthouse Caribou highly enough!

“Amazing chalet in beautiful location”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Everything about this holiday was fantastic! The chalet was stunning and huge, everything that we could have needed was provided and there was plenty of space for all 18 of us. The area was beautiful and there are loads of things to do nearby.
