Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a beautiful and sensual chalet - we had a delightful and relaxing time. A key feature is that it is a real ski in and out chalet. Very important at the end of a day's hard skiing.

Wonderful accomodation in exquisite countryside

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is in immaculate condition with all the mod cons. The manager Olivier was always available to assist with any requests (not that he was needed).

There are some amazing walks right from the front door and enough bars and resaurants in the surrounding villages to suit all needs.

We would most definately return and bring friends and family.

A truly exquisite chalet in a superb location.

  • 5 of 5

This chalet was all that one could hope for, and more! Beautifully decorated throughout with every last detail carefully thought out. Superb bedrooms and fabulous communal living area. The views are absolutely breathtaking and the position of the chalet makes it ideal for getting on to the slopes in no time. A wonderful steam room and hot tub ease any aches away. Excellent restaurants in the area and a very good ski shop with new equipment if rental is needed. I would have no hesitation in recommending this chalet and very much hope to stay there again.

A real find !!

"Chalet Sonnailles is a real find. Just the thing we were looking for. A quiet, family skiing holiday in an immaculate, contemporary yet very cosy chalet, with beautiful views and instant access to the slopes. We made ourselves at home and loved it."

Glorious week in the 4 valleys

  • 5 of 5

We spent a glorious week in Chalet Sonnailles; it catered for our every need; warm and comfy beds, a spacious sitting room, a well equipped kitchen and lots of hot water – both inside and out, thanks to the relaxing hot tub which, with a glass of wine in hand and a view to die for, reinvigorated our ski-weary bones! A truly great chalet to which we so look forward to returning.
