Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Awesome stay in my new favourite ski resort
Our holiday was just superb and really exceeded expectations! The chalet was such a cosy, homely property that had all mods cons but still maintained a unique charm. The log burning stove was a welcome addition in the evenings after relaxing in the amazing hot tub too. Overall it was clean, well maintained and we all looked forward to coming back to the property each evening, and having the kit room with the boot warmer was another bonus meaning we didn't have to drag our kit through the house. The resort was lovely, lots of nice little restaurants in walking distance and all amenities in walking or short driving distance. Getting up to the ski resort was easy, and no hassle at all either via the gondola or by driving up to the resort. The ski area overall was just amazing, the Grand Massif just blew us away with its sheer size, and after a dump of snow it was just perfect !

Friends and family trip together
Had an excellent holiday in this chalet- perfectly equipped for all our needs . Clair was so helpful in advance answering all our questions and the chalet is exactly as described. We made good use of the hot tub and gardens and the views from the chalet were great . So handy for trips to Morillon chair lifts, Samoens Telecabin, Sixt fer a Cheval and Morzine. There is plenty to do in this area over the summer even though only a few lifts are working and the weather was hot with impressive thunderstorms! Thank you for a wonderful time in your chalet Clair.

Very comfortable family chalet
Extremely conveniently located and well equipped chalet. Added bonus of large, private garden area with a hot tub and great views. Highly recommended. The owner Clair was very responsive and local property managers were there to answer any questions we had.

Ideal chalet with everything in Verchaix plus ever helpful owner
Six of us have just returned from a perfect week in this chalet in Verchaix, near Samoen. The chalet was spacious and perfectly equipped as well as being perfectly located. The owner, Clair, was ever helpful with answers to questions and suggestion on how to enjoy our stay during the build up. A 5 plus without any hesitation.

fantastic location, great facilities
We had a great stay at Chalet Cristal. The owner was very accommodating before and during our stay. The chalet is very comfortable with all the facilities we required. It was a three minute trip to the telecabine station and short walks to a good boulangerie, pizzeria and delicatessen.

Map
About the neighbourhood
The Giffre Valley is a cul-de-sac culminating in the stunning Fer à Cheval reserve. Samoëns is a historic monument and one of the prettiest towns in France whilst the smaller communes of Morillon, Verchaix and Sixt all have their own distinct character as working, farming communities. It's in the middle of the Grand Massif, one of the larger ski domains in the Alps with 148 individual pistes covering over 265 km, accessed by some 80 lifts. The area has an enviable snow record and with 80% of the pistes being north-facing, conditions are good until the very end of the season.
How to get there
The chalet is an easy 8 hour drive from Calais as it's motorway for all but the last 20 - 30 mins depending which way you go. We're less than one hour from Geneva airport and there are lots of transfer companies and options operating in the valley. In winter the ski bus stops at the end of the road.
