Guestbook comments from the owner
Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our stay "chez vous".
We have visited many places in the Alps, Vosges and Jura and can say that your place was certainly the most magical. The views were absolutely amazing ,helped by the fantastic weather.
Thank you so much.

From the Owner
“As a family we started skiing regularly when our children were very young, and when we visited Les Saisies we thought it had EVERYTHING!! Fantastic views, Endless skiing as it is now linked to the Espace Diamant ski area, great snow due to its proximity to Mont Blanc, together with a traditional feel which some resorts seem to have lost. The apartment is situated on-piste, so when we saw them being built we just fell in love ......”

From the Owner
“Winter sports in the area are fantastic, and the scenery is arguably the best in the Alps! The ski-in/ski-out aspect allows you to put your boots on and just wander out of the back door to enjoy a day's skiing, making life very easy (especially with kids!) Summer gives you the opportunity for mountain biking, walking and swimming. If you enjoy outdoor life, big views and a feel of getting away from it all this is the place for you!”
