Wonderful Chalet - stupendous views
We stayed at Chalet Fingals for a fortnight in August. It is a really well-equipped chalet and the wi-fi worked perfectly, which was much appreciated by all, but particularly by the two young people in the family. There are stupendous views from the sitting room and the balcony of the Rhone Valley and the surrounding mountains, which were a delight to look at, particularly when the sun was setting on the mountains in the evening.
We were very lucky with the weather - most days were sunny or sunny intervals, but not too hot. There are lots of outings and walks to do, either straight from the door or in easy travelling distance. The trip up to Mont Fort (on a chair lift - not at all scary - and two cable cars) is a must, and the walks along the bisses are very interesting but not too much of a strain as they are mostly on the level. Haute Nendaz itself is an attractive little town and was quite active even though it was the Summer season.
Further afield, the trip to Zermatt took a little over an hour but the ride from there up the Gornegrat cog railway, with wonderful views of the Matterhorn, was a highlight. We also went to Geneva to visit the large hadron collider at CERN (you can book a tour online) - not everyone's top tourist destination, but a must-see if you have a Physics student in the party. Although it was a long way, we drove back alongside Lake Geneva, which was really nice on a sunny Summer's evening.
Finally, if you are prime target for mosquitos when on holiday, I am delighted to report that we didn't see one mozzie around the chalet! There were a few midges up on the bisses, which is to be expected, but nobody got any bites at all throughout the holiday, which must be a first.
Thank you for the review. Zermatt is definitely worth a visit be it for shopping, sight seeing or, for the more adventurous, climbing. The Matterhorn is awesome!
Excellent modern chalet furnished in a lovely contemporary style. Awesome view of Rhone Valley.
Wonderful Easter holiday. Although late in season there was enough snow for some reasonable skiing, and excellent sunshine. Switzerland is always great over Easter and there are plenty of activities for the kids, including numerous easter egg hunts! Chalet Fingals exceeded our expectations, wonderful peaceful location, only a few minutes drive from Nendaz Telecabine. It has all modern day facilities that make your stay very comfortable. Highly recommended!
The house is great, modern, convenient, well equipped. The owners are friendly and reactive. View is magnificent.
The house is ideal for people with car. If you are there without a car or enough places in the car, check the bus schedule in advance -- if you need to commute between the house and ski lifts during the day, this may be difficult. If you simply go to ski and then come back, it is not a problem as well.
Excellent chalet in a great location
This is our third stay at the chalet and again we have had a fantastic holiday. The chalet is very well equipped and ideal location for skiing and going on lovely hikes. The owners are extremely accommodating and flexible and given this is our third time we would definitely recommend.
Thanks for the review Julia. We are so pleased that you and your family have enjoyed your stay at our chalet again and wish you a very happy 2016.
We heard from Yannik that fresh snow has just fallen so I'm glad you had time to enjoy it and hope you will book again with us.
Kind regards Ruth and Charlie Denwood
Onze verwachting was hoog, gezien de recensies. Dit viel enorm tegen bij aankomst. Huis was niet schoon (spinnen, vloer vies, ramen vies enz.), onvoldoende kookgerei, slechte bedden, slechte stofzuiger, dus ook bijna niet schoon te maken en te houden. Na mail contact nog steeds geen afdoend antwoord, vandaar dit bericht. De site doet vermoeden dat je in een super woning met tuin komt, maar dat valt behoorlijk tegen, ook al is het voor de rest prima. Maar voor deze prijs mag je wel wat anders verwachten
We were very sorry to hear that our guests were disappointed. We are very proud of our chalet and love to hear that others have enjoyed it as much as we do. As a result of the email we had, my husband and I visited the chalet and found it to be clean and tidy. We changed the vacuum cleaner and added some more baking trays and casserole dishes as a result of the comments.
The beds are not old and are of a very high standard and we have local cleaners who maintain the chalet before and after every visit. We provide towels and linen for our guests to use and also provide logs for the wood burner and unlimited wifi so that your stay is as relaxing as possible.
We welcome comments and will always try and react to improve the service. Thank you.
