Stunning views and brilliant facilities
First of all, the location. You will be severely challenged to find anywhere with views as nice as this. When you are reclining by the (lovely large) pool in the sunshine you really do pinch yourself for having the good fortune to find such a gorgeous place. The villa accommodates two groups but they are separate and although the BBQ, pool and jacuzzi are shared the space around the pool is so large you don't even have to talk to them if you don't want to - although we met a lovely family from Hamburg and shared some experiences and highlights in the evenings over some wine. For a large group this is a fantastic option. The villa itself is rustic and charming with lots of room and the extras (spa, sauna, pool, boot room for skiiing season, etc) are very good. We were there in the summer and the weather was fabulous. Location is perfect and even if you never left the property in the week you would have a great time. However, within easy reach are Geneva, Annecy, Mont Blanc, Evian, Yvoire and a host of other places to explore. We had a really great week.
We’d highly recommend this place to anyone!
We’ve just returned home following a great weeks holiday. The chalet is stunning and beautifully decorated with everything we needed. It is situated close to the river in a stunning setting. It was lovely to take the short stroll into the village to collect fresh croissants for breakfast. Also within a short drive there are many great things to see and enjoy especially if you love being outdoors. We had brilliant trips to lake Annecy and Chamonix/Mont Blanc. Carole cooked two super meals for us and was so very helpful in making our holiday a truly memorable one. The pool and hot tub alongside the communal lounge and dining room were a real added bonus. We’d highly recommend this place to anyone! Thank you for everything.
My family, which included three small children, had a wonderful time at the chalet. Carole met us at the time of check in and was on site for our entire stay to answer any question. The pool and hot tub were immaculately clean and everything you could want was provided: games for children and adults, toys and movies.
A perfect summer holiday!
We really thank the owner for such a wonderful stay! We loved every moment, the chalet, the location and the local area! Everyday we were swimming int he pool, hiking the mountains and enjoying a rose in the garden - a perfect summer holiday!
We really appreciated the location, the environment, and our host.
We loved the food, relaxing and doing many activities.
We had everything we needed.
It was our first stay in your beautiful lodgings and we were very satisfied with everything we found there. The house was charming and, at the same time, very well equipped. We had everything we needed. Carole, our "landlady" was very friendly and forthcoming and assisted us in every possible way. Her cooking skills were excellent and the meals very delicious. She provided us with any additional information we might require and she even gave us some very useful advice for our daily activities, whether we planned hiking trips in the mountains near the resort or attempted to "conquer" Europe's highest peak, the Mont Blanc at Chamonix. In all, our one week stay at Ferme du Grand Essert - Aravis / Bourne was a complete success! This, certainly, has not been our last trip to the beautiful resort in the beautiful French Alps!
It was better than expected!
We rented both apartments in this chalet, and it was the best we have ever stayed in. The comfort, the pool, the facilities — it was all perfect. It's also brilliant for the children and the setting was beautiful.
