About Amanda Turner

We have lived on and off in France for 18 year's now, mainly during the winter ski season in the Alpes, but now living here permanently.

My husband,Kevin, is a British ski instructor working in Les Gets during the Winter month's and normally back in the UK for some water-sport teaching and sailing.

We have a daughter who is now 12 and loves the life out here.

Taninges is a lovely village where the population remains the same throughout the year, making this village have a typical french feel and not too touristy!

Amanda Turner purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Amanda Turner chose Taninges

We fell in love with this area when we visited it in 2005 and decided to buy a plot of land so that we could have our own chalet design.

It has taken many year's to complete but we feel well worth it! The chalet has a fantastic southerly aspect and it is situated in a quiet residential area, away from any ski crowds.

It is a lovely place to sit, enjoy a drink or two and take in the ambiance of the surrounding area.

What makes this apartment unique

Taninges is a lovely traditional French village with all the amenities we need to hand.

The activities on offer to children in this area are amazing whether it is skiing, and ice skating in the Winter to open air swimming pools and high ropes courses in the Summer.

With such a warm welcome,generous hospitality and continued high standard of comfort in the apt., how could we fail to enjoy our retrun visit to this beautiful home in such a convenient location.

We chose your apt for the view and are so glad we did. The apt has everything for a comfortable stay and the location is perfect.

It is an ideal location to visit a number of places, all within an hour's drive.

The house has everything we needed especially the beer!

What a view! We're so happy we found your wonderful chalet to enjoy our week skiing. It's been an absolute home from home and a joy to return to and warm our weary ski legs.

A great location with so many options to ski.

We look forward to a return visit so we can sit out on the balcony and gaze longingly at that view again.

Super Penthouse apartment

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a great stay. Nice welcome treats on arrival, good communication with owners. There was a well equipped kitchen, probably the best in over 10 years of staying in French chalets. Comfy dining area and lounge with TVs etc. Super balcony with outstanding views. Just right for a family of 3. Wouldn't hesitate to return, well done and best wishes to your family.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in excellent location for visiting various ski resorts in the Grand Massif. Super view from the balcony. The apartment has everything you might possible need, impeccably clean and very modern. Amanda was very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Fresh lemon drizzle cake on arrival was a nice touch. We stayed in the winter but would consider a summer break too. Taninges has excellent amenities, supermarket, great bakeries...

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is the nicest apartment we have stayed in while skiing in the French Alps. The apartment is spacious, nicely decorated and very well equipped. There's parking right outside the door, WiFi, the underfloor heating is brilliant and the views of Taninges are stunning. As we had a hire car, we were able to ski in five different resorts during our week's holiday which were all under an hour away by car (Praz de Lys and Les Gets are both only 15 mins away). I would say that a car is essential to make the most of this location. We got a lovely warm welcome and Amanda is always quick at responding to emails. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and thoroughly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for such great comments. Due to the location of our apartment we would always say that a car is essential, but this gives you so much flexibility in choosing a location to ski either each day or a 3 + 3. The Grande massif and Portes du Soleil both only a 15 minute drive to the main car parks, or Chamonix 40 minutes away.

Excellent Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quality accommodation which would give easy access to both the porte de soleil and the grand massif ski areas and this apartment perfectly fitted the bill. The accommodation itself was perfect for a family of three, the fixtures and fittings are all top quality as are the beds which were very comfortable.

The chalets setting gives a wonderful view of the valley and is beautifully tranquil.

The owners made us feel very welcome and the cake and beers left in the apartment on our arrival were very much appreciated.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your kind comments, we are glad that you had a lovely holiday. We do try to make the apartment as comfortable as possible and always add in a few extras so that you can either have a cup of tea and cake or a beer on your arrival depending on your choice!

Really nice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Chalet Jeeka for four weeks, it was homely and had everything that we needed for a long stay. The owners were there to give any advise that we needed and were extremely helpful and friendly. We felt very comfortable and at ease. The chalet location is ideal for the surrounding ski resorts and villages, with plenty to see and do. The view from the lounge is constantly changing and keeps your attention, we certainly hope that we are able to return in the near future, even perhaps in the summer-beautiful.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind comments, it was lovely to meet you both and to spend a few evenings together over a glass of wine or two. Hopefully we will see you again either out here or in Hampshire when we visit that area!
