About the property

6 Bedrooms, 4 Bath/shower rooms, 4 separate WCs, Sleeps 14

Chalet La Ribambelle, 3 minutes by car from the ski slopes and with a shuttle bus at the end of the road, is a beautiful traditional chalet set above the alpine village of Combloux, with spectacular views of the Mont Blanc and its mountain range. It has been used as a family holiday home ever since it was built approximately 50 years ago by our parents. It is set at the end of a quiet lane, with rolling fields below and very few other houses around, providing a wonderfully tranquil setting with plenty of open space. The chalet is on three levels, with the main living accommodation on the middle level. The house sleeps 14 people in six bedrooms with 4 bath or shower rooms, very spacious living areas and wonderful views from most windows.

Why Simon Browne chose St. Gervais - Megeve area

Daniele's father built La Ribambelle in 1960 for his growing family. He chose the 4000m2 site because of its unique position and view over farmland to Mont Blanc

What makes this chalet unique

The secluded position , the spacious building, the wonderful view, the family friendly environment, the proximity to ski slopes and a host of holiday activities

Perfect for large skiing group

  • 5 of 5

14 of us (aged 14 to 76) stayed at the chalet and it was perfect - there is plenty of space in the living and sleeping quarters and the views from the living room are stunning. The chalet was spotless and well equipped. We got lucky with the snow which arrived just as we did (phew!) - Combloux is a little gem of a resort with plenty of skiing through the trees and no queues. The more advanced skiers had done it after a couple of days and went to Megeve which is 5 minutes away - much bigger and less picturesque but highly recommended. We have previously skied in Les Contamines 20 minutes up the valley and that is a great option too. One of the reasons for choosing the chalet is it's proximity to numerous resorts to mitigate the risk of poor snow. The organisation was exemplary before, during and after our stay. Chapeau!

Great chalet in quiet location with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

An ideal property for a late summer get together with family and friends. Spacious and comfortable accommodation with room for all to spread out. The bedrooms are comfortable and a good size, the property is well managed and the owner very helpful in providing information and guidance on what attractions and restaurants are worth a visit. The location is ideal, quiet (except for the occasional cow bell), close to the village and the views are stunning. Exactly as described.

This was our second September stay at this property and we are looking forward to returning for our third next year - what more can I say!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay as much as the previous year and looking forward to seeing you back here next year. A large number of our guests rebook every year or every other year as it is such a spacious chalet and in the perfect place, tranquil and with the fantastic view over the mountains.

Excellent location, fabulous views home from home

  • 5 of 5

We received a very warm welcome from Madame Christelle, the Chalet has all the facilities you could hope for. The views across the valley from the living room plus bedrooms were stunning. The location is very good, with good access to both ski lifts and the village centre. We had a very relaxed and enjoyable stay and hope to return again.

Amazing views, convenient location, very clean and tidy, high spec, homely accommodation. Secluded away from any noise with good skiing, walks and village nearby. Very helpful and accommodating owners. Catered with everything (and more) that you'll need for your self catered stay. Very well equipped for families with young children and groups alike. Definitely hope to return here for an amazing holiday again someday :)

Owner's Response: So pleased that this family, coming to La Ribambelle for the first time, had such a good holiday that they plan to come again, as do most of our guests. 80% of our guests have come more than once. We look forward to welcoming them back.

Fantastic chalet, spectacular views.

  • 5 of 5

I have been arranging skiing trips for family and friends for a few years now and we have found a real gem with this property. 12 of us have just returned after having a fantastic time at Chalet la Ribambell. It is situated down a private driveway with spectacular views of Mont Blanc. It is very well maintained and very clean, with a well equipped kitchen and a good selection of games and dvds for your apres ski entertainment. Unlike a lot of places i've stayed there is plenty of storage space and the heated utility area in the basement is ideal to store and air all of the groups skiwear and equipment. We were text by the chalet maid whilst travelling down to check on our arrival time and met when we arrived. She spoke very good English and gave us a tour of the property. The owner stays in regular contact with you as well. I even received a Christmas card. Little things, but they go a long way to make you feel a valued customer and enhance your whole holiday experience.
