This was our first visit to Le Grand Massif so Sixt Alpine Chalet was a new experience. Sean and Julia are the perfect hosts - nothing is too much trouble as Sean will advise, drive, collect and deliver at any time. Clearly an experienced "Grand Massif" man with a great sense of humour and a willingness to serve that is seldom met these days. Julia is a chef "par excellence" - never have we eaten food of this quality in a catered chalet and her cakes should win a global award. The chalet is spotless at all times and beautifully furnished. Our room was superb in every way. A 5 star + chalet at a 3 star price. A truly fantastic place to stay.
We were very well taken care of by our hosts, fabulous meals and yes Julia’s cakes must get a special mention. There is plenty of space and comfort to be able to relax in the evenings and lots of movies, satellite, games, music etc to choose from.
Staying in Sixt and getting to and from the lifts was made super easy and quick for us by Sean it couldn’t be handier. Sixt is a peaceful, unspoilt mountain village, and the elevated location of the chalet offers some truly stunning views.
Even after having visited the Grand Massif area several times before there is still so much more to come back to explore and I would definitely return to Sixt Alpine Chalet.
On behalf of our small group, thank you both for your attention throughout our short stay, particularly when two of our group were not feeling 100%. It was one of the most welcoming and friendly chalets we have ever stayed in.
We all really enjoyed our stay, the chalet is lovely, particularly the lounge in which to flop on the comfortable sofas after a day outside and after your gorgeous evening meals.
Not being in Samoens was no detriment whatsoever with the shuttle to and from the lifts and the transfers from and to Geneva made life so much easier and less hassle than hiring a car.
Thank you for being so accommodating with another group member's fickle eating habits. I don’t think he has ever eaten so well on a catered skiing holiday.
We wish you all the best for the remainder of this (somewhat strange) season and for the future and look forward to staying with you again at some point.
Just returned from a fantastic week skiing in Grand Massif area. We stayed in Sean and Julia's catered chalet in Sixt. The chalet is very spacious especially the communal areas. It is warm and cosy with a wood burning stove. Sean and Julia went out of their way to look after us all when we were in Sixt. Fantastic meals every night. Highly recommend this chalet to anyone considering it.
Just home from a fantastic week in Sixt. The chalet was beautiful, warm and cozy. Sean and Julia were great hosts and Julia's cakes were delicious... Sean provides a lift from the chalet to the lift every morning and evening and also picked us up at the bottom of Cascade a few times... Highly recommended Sixt and Sean and Julia's place.
This is a fantastic chalet, which is owned and run by Sean and Julia, who are the perfect hosts. The chalet itself is huge - massive living room with 3 full size sofas arranged around a fireplace and large (toasty warm) bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. The meals are great, loads of wine and there is an added option of packed lunch which came in really handy on some of the says. Some people may be put off by the fact that this is not a ski in/ski out Chalet but really they shouldn't be. Sean and Julia offer such a flexible drop off/pick up service that it's actually better than ski in/ski out because when your legs are about to give way you will see Sean ready to load your stuff (and you) into the bus! Changes of plan etc are not an issue and Sean was able to accommodate our last minute changes etc. The other thing is that the quality and level of service offered in this chalet will not be matched in a ski in/ski out chalet.
Sixt isn't a party town but it has a great traditional feel and there are a number of restaurants and small bars if you feel like venturing out in the evening. The ski run into Sixt from Flaine is a brilliant way to finish the day and at the end you'll find a bar to welcome you back.
Brian Trainor-Great trip well looked after by Sean and Julia-no problems recommending Sixt Alpine lodge-recommend La Repossette for apres ski in Vaclane?
