About Amanda Turner

We have lived on and off in France for 19 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 attending the local school here in Taninges.

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 2005

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.

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

It is an ideal locatin 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 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. 10 out of 10.

Excellent, great location, has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

When booking the chalet and prior to travelling the owners responded to our questions very quickly and they were always extremely helpful.

We stayed the week before Christmas.

The chalet was fully equipped, immaculately clean, and lovely and warm. You can park your car outside the front door.

We arrived late in the evening, the owners kindly waited up for us.

Great views.

We were a family of 3, on a skiing holiday, not much snow, but Amanda advised us where to go skiing, we had a great holiday.

Would definitely return, and recommend to a friend.

Superb views, accomodation and helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

Easy, level parking. Step through the front door and a lovely modern apartment with fantastic views from the living area, main bedroom and long balcony. Comfortable with everything you need. Helpful owners who recommended places to walk and visit and lent us maps. Balcony with dining table and chairs great even if it rains due to the roof overhang. Great location for our summer holiday with plenty of amazing scenery within easy reach and well signed walks. Would definitely recommend and hope to return. Many thanks to Amanda and Kevin for a warm welcome

Wonderful Chalet Jeeka!

  • 5 of 5

Jules and I spent a wonderful week at the Chalet, using it as a base to search for a place of our own in this region. Although we normally stay in either Les Gets or Samoens we found the location of the Chalet very convenient for exploring the Porte du Soleil area. The Chalet was clean and well equipped with a spectacular view over the valley and the village from the balcony. Kevin and Amanda (the owners) were extremely helpful and the welcome pack, which included a delightful lemon drizzle cake, was a very pleasant surprise! We will definitely stay there again! David
