Mais taille du frigo inadaptée pour 10.pas d'accessoires pour se servir du barbecue et le nettoyer.pas de dessous de plats,nappe non impermeable,pas de cafetière filtre ,pas de bols.le reste est super.une seule chaine de télé en français.
Merci Gerard pour vos pensees .... we were very sorry that you didn't find the place mats for under the plates. Also, the new thermal table protection did mean that you could put hot plates onto the table if you wanted to. The cafetiere was also there for your use for filter coffee and the bowls in the sideboard for your cereal etc. We were delighted that you enjoyed your family holiday all the same and we look forward to welcoming you back next summer! Suzanne and Rob
We had a lovely stay!
It was really lovely to stay at The Alpine Retreat in Les Houches: excellent location, stunning views and a well equipped, cozy house. Rob and Lea are great hosts! Thanks for everything!
Fien and her family were the guests from heaven - super clean, tidy, friendly and excellent house guests. We loved having them all to stay! They left the property absolutely spotless and did everything without fuss or bother. We'd highly recommend them as guests! We were delighted that they had enjoyed their ski holiday so much and thank them for choosing to stay here.
Best time ever, location in very good area with gorgeous view, thank you to the host and warm welcome!!!
Thank you, Zinaida, for your lovely review - you were our first Romanian/Moldovan guests and we loved your idea of the BBQ in the snow! Thanks for a great evening, fascinating company, superb home-reared/grown food and genuine hospitality. A lovely stay - do come again! Suzanne and Rob

Thank you for your review - we were delighted to be able to accommodate you all at such short notice from Barcelona! Glad you enjoyed your stay and that the free firewood helped to keep you warm! Thank you for leaving the Farmhouse clean and tidy - we hope to see you again :-) Suzanne and Rob .
We had a fantastic week staying in the lovely farmhouse. Excellent location, stunning views, well equipped house and beautiful garden all combined to make our stay to celebrate my 40th birthday as perfect as i could have hoped for. Les Houches is a great location away from the bustle of Chamonix but only a short free bus ride away when we wanted to visit. Hardly needed to use the car as free public transport in the valley was so good.
Frankie and Jerry were very welcoming and were so helpful with local knowledge.
We enjoyed trips out to Aguil du Midi, Mer de Glace, Brevent and Flegere cable cars, Mountain tramway, Annecy and generally exploring Chamonix and the whole valley. Being there to see the finish of UTMB was an added bonus.
Best bits. ...too many to mention. Worst bit...leaving to come home.
Thank you for a very special stay. We definitely want to come back.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful review of your birthday adventures at The Alpine Retreat! We were delighted that you enjoyed your explorations and saw so many fantastic places. Frankie and Jerry really enjoyed your company and we both would like to extend a warm welcome to join the growing band of our many returning guests .....thank you for choosing the Alpine Retreat - we hope to see you again very soon :-)
Wonderful stay in Les Houches
Wanted to see the mountains in summer for the first time. Heard a lot of Chamonix so went there for hiking. We were chosing where to stay based on location and price. Alpine Retreat is just few steps from several nice trails, lifts are around the corner in case you need them. Enough of activities for family with three kids for at least couple of days, no need to use a car or public transport.
Easy to get to any location in the valley from Alpine Retreat. Several grocery shops are in vicinity though for serious shopping we went with the car. Closest bakery is few hundred meters away (bread is good but croissants are not the best in the valley).
The house is clean (most important for us) and really convenient for whatever duration stay. Kitchen is good with enough of equipment though rather old but in good condition (dishwasher is terribly loud but you do not hear that upstairs). They even have washing machine (big bonus for us).
Sleeping rooms are upstairs. Did not use one of four rooms at all. Everyone slept conveniently. Double bed could be a bit longer though. Would not chose to stay with another family or friends, would not be enough of privacy in that case, one family fits perfectly.
Three bathrooms is a good thing for a big family obviously. Although using of two showers at the same time dd not work well, not enough pressure for hot water,
Hosts were very nice and welcoming. Could advise on where to go and what to see. We were too engaged in our planned activities so did not have enough time to chat with them bit more which could be nice as we felt.
Completely enjoyed our stay.
Thank you, A B, for your nice review - we were delighted that your active family had such a great time exploring the mountains from the Alpine Retreat.
We will take a look at the water pressure situation in the showers - we didn't know that the pressure needed boosting, so thanks for letting us know!
Sorry you found the beds a little short - whilst they are the full length - you are even taller than Rob (lucky for you!) and so we are not at all surprised!!
You would be very welcome to return and we hope that you do. Good luck with your family fun and thank you again, Suzanne and Rob
Côte / Plage:
Lacs de la région offrent de nombreuses possibilités pour la baignade en été. Plusieurs des lacs ont plages artificielles (zones couvertes de sable) sur une partie de leur longueur.
La plupart de nos clients soit voler à l'aéroport de Genève (Easyjet), qui est inférieure à la commande d'une heure de la retraite alpine ou le lecteur du Royaume-Uni (8 heures à partir des ports de ferry français). Autres aéroports comprennent: Lyon (2 heures), et de Turin (1 3/4 heures) en voiture. Nous pouvons organiser des transferts depuis l'aéroport de Genève, si nécessaire.
Nous sommes idéalement situés dans le village des Houches, Chamonix, et nous sommes à seulement 3 minutes à pied de boutiques, de restaurants et de bars.
La capitale alpine de Chamonix est à seulement 5 km. Nous pouvons organiser des billets gratuits pour les bus et les trains locaux réguliers le long de la vallée. Pour un avant-goût de l'Italie, pourquoi ne pas utiliser le tunnel du Mont Blanc; en moins d'une demi-heure, vous pouvez apprécier une pizza dans la ville italienne de Courmeyeur ou de la randonnée dans le magnifique Val Ferret, ou se détendre dans le spa romain à Pré St Didier.
Dans la vallée de Chamonix, l'ensemble du concept de l'accès facile aux montagnes est né dans la réalité avec des trains, des tramways et une série de remontées mécaniques superbement efficaces, qui vous emmènera jusqu'à les centaines de sentiers bien balisés de marche / vélo. Il est également facile de visiter l'un des nombreux glaciers ou pour obtenir un avant-goût de rafting, canyoning ou même le parapente, ou peut-être à visiter l'un des nombreux parcs animaliers. En outre, plusieurs centres d'activités offrent tout de tennis pour la natation et le patinage sur glace au golf. Les deux Houches et de Chamonix ont un large éventail de restaurants et de bars qui offrent une cuisine et de divertissement pour satisfaire tous les goûts et le budget.
