Thank you Richard, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Eglantine. I would definitely recommend it for a family or group stay, it has everything needed for a great ski holiday, and the location could not be better, placed within easy walks to both ski areas in Les Gets.

We stayed at chalet Englantine over new year 2012/13 and can safely say it exceeded expectations. It was in a brilliant location so no need for ski buses to get to the slopes. As someone as previously mentioned, the pictures don't do it justice and there was plenty of space for 5 adults and 2 kids...plus it was warm and toasty all the time!
We had private lessons with ESF for our 2 daughters (aged 9 and 12) mainly because I left it too late to book group lessons...but this worked out better as I think they progressed at a much quicker rate. We also used Evasion Sports for our ski hire and took advantage of the 15% discount that the owner Richard has sorted out.
Finally, we had excellent communication from Richard and we would definitely come again. Thanks!

Just returned from our second holiday in the chalet Eglantine. Can't praise / recommend the chalet or the owner (Richard) highly enough.
The chalet itself has all you could wish for and more - even has a docking station for your IPOD! Also plenty of space for our group of 7.
Very close to the ski areas with only a five minutes walk to the closest lifts. Les Gets and Morzine had more than enough skiing to keep us occupied. However, for the really keen (and fit) the Portes du Soleil is easily accessible.
Les Gets itself is perfect. Feels like a real village and has loads of restaurants, bars and shops.
If you're looking for a very comfortable, fully equipped, affordable skiing holiday for a group of up to 8 then look no further.
