Visitor comments

  • "We have just returned from a week at Chalet Sautrelle. We were a party of 10 adults, a toddler of nearly 3 and a baby of 8 months. The chalet is in a superb location between Val Claret ( 10 minutes stroll ) and La Lac ( 20 mins stroll )! Superb for happy hour before evening meal. Lorraine and Paul the chalet hosts were superb and very welcoming. The meals we're excellent and served superbly ! Lorraine made my grandson a lovely meal each evening and served it early which suited there bedtime ! The bus stop was 25 yards from the front door of the chalet and suited the skiing for either ski areas. I would recommend this chalet and give it top marks !!" - Trip Advisor
  • "Lorraine and Paul were so welcoming and the week went really smoothly. Everything was covered and nothing was too much to ask. The Food was brilliant , the chalet was warm, dry, comfortable and in a great location, just opposite the free bus stop. Paul and Lorraine ate with us and it felt extremely homely. My only reservation would be that if I recommended these guys too much, there may not be room for us again in the future. But that shouldn't stop you, should it? So here it is, this was the best chalet holiday I've been to. ( and I've done a few now over the years) The chalet is clean, tidy and comfortable. The food and ambience are great. The log fire warm and lit every day. Skibug is a real find. Look them up." - Trip Advisor
  • "This chalet is in a great location in a tried and tested resort. So easy to get to the slopes from here. The very regular resort buses stop outside the building and take you right into Val Claret or Tignes Le Lac less than 5 minutes away. This chalet is run by Paul & Lorraine whose infinate knowledge of skiing in the Alps is invaluable on a short holiday. They can advise all levels of skiers from the adventurous bold to the timid! They are a great team serving up delicious evening meals and hearty breakfasts. From the moment we arrived they could not have been more welcoming and helpful. They were talking about upgrading the property too so watch this space as its already a great value chalet!" - Trip Advisor
