“Second visit even more fun”
Reviewed 24 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This was our second time at Penthouse Caribou, (and hopefully not our last) and all I can say is our stay was even better than the first!! We discovered new places to eat that were exceptional, including the restaurant in Les Cornettes hotel, which is in the village just 5 minutes walk from the Chalet!!

The Chalet it's self is huge, places to relax, play pool, watch tv, eat, plus a fully equipped kitchen, spacious bedrooms, all in all, exceptional value for money, you won't go wrong booking Caribou!!

“Penthouse Caribou will not disappoint.”
Reviewed 24 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The attention to detail and the friendliness of Jacqui and Martin is a delight. The small town location with its local bakery, restaurants and bars leave you feeling relaxed having sampled great food and drink. Views from and the location of the chalet is ideal. Our hosts organised our skis, transported to and fitted within, the spacious, private boot room. This will not be our last visit.

“A perfect mountain retreat”
Reviewed 23 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Penthouse Caribou was the perfect base for 5 days of extensive skiing. The facilities were well-planned and spacious , from the large lounge diner with real fire, to the second lounge with pool table above. The bedrooms were well appointed and several of the bathrooms have been modernised to a lovely standard. My large bedroom had a beautiful en suite and a gorgeous sunny balcony.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 22 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed at Penthouse Caribou with a group of friends. From start to finish it was a luxurious experience. Jacqui organised our transfers, lift passes and had a ski hire company come and meet us at Penthouse Caribou; taking every bit of hassle out of our holiday. All we had to do was turn up!

The penthouse is stunning and extremely well equipped. The bedrooms are huge and there are incredible views from every room. Jacqui is the perfect hostess and made our stay so special. She has an extensive list of recommendations for the best places for après and restaurants after a hard day skiing. One of our party had never been skiing before, and once again Jacqui came to the rescue and organised a ski instructor prior to our arrival.

Loved it so much that we have already booked up to return to Penthouse Caribou again next season! Can't wait!

“Incredible penthouse, ideal facilities for a large group with easy access to the slopes!”
Reviewed 22 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Stayed at the Penthouse Caribou with 15 friends and I must say this place is brilliant for a large group. Plenty of space for all of us to chill out/eat/play games. Each bedroom is beautifully decorated, with great views! Easy enough to get to the slopes by bus and ski a huge area of the alps!
La Chapelle d'Abondance is a great little town, with a quaint brewery down the road from the Caribou (happy hour is 6-7pm - accompanied by the mountain of nachos and your night is sorted!). Plenty of fondue restaurants around, definitely recommend Les Cornettes! Or a supermarket the other side of town if you want to cook and take advantage of the penthouse amenities.
All in all fantastic holiday, no complaints!

“Best Chalet I have ever stayed in”
Reviewed 22 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The Chalet looked amazing from photos but still managed to exceed all expectations on arrival. The rooms are huge with stunning views of the surrounding area. Our group had the maximum advertised number of people and the chalet still felt extremely spacious with the large kitching, dining area, and mezzanine upstairs. The location is ideal for both beginner and experienced skiers with a short walk or bus ride to the huge ski area. The Chalet is incredible value for money and has actually been my cheapest ski holiday along with my best! Jacqui is a very helpful and relaxed host and we will definitely be returning in the future!

“A Penthouse that lives up to its name!”
Reviewed 10 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Wow! Jaw dropping luxury at the top of this well placed building with great access to the slopes in La Chapelle. The pampered feeling even extends to the large, heated and well appointed changing room - no pokey ski lockers here! All of the bedrooms are very large by normal alpine standards and each has a real character of its own. The kitchen is incredibly well appointed, so cooking a proper meal is a breeze and the dishwasher deals with the fall-out. Jacqui and Martin made us feel very much at home, their local knowledge is vast and freely given. Did we like it? Well, we're not waiting till next year before we go back again and I think that's a pretty clear indication of just how strongly we recommend Penthouse Caribou!
