We loved our stay at Chalet Chanterelle in the lovely village of Thollon-Les-Memises. The chalet itself is in lovely quiet surroundings, with amazing views of Lake Geneva and Lausanne on the northern side and the village is just the right size for a holiday location with a fantastic boulangerie, fromagerie and a small but very friendly supermarket.
The chalet itself was modern, clean, comfortable and fully equipped with everything you could need, and was the right amount of space for my husband and I and our two girls, aged 6 and 3. Upon arrival we relaxed immediately, and spent precious time cooking, eating and enjoying the magnificent views.
We also enjoyed some great skiing in wonderful sunshine. Thollon is a very intimate but well-equipped resort offering excellent value (including reasonably priced food at the mountain restaurant), and enough beginner slopes to meet the needs of our beginner 3 year old and our second year of skiing 6 year old. It also offered some absolutely amazing views from the top of the summit for those of us more advanced. (We come from Australia and when we ski we simply don't get economic value, amazing views of Alps and lakes, or reasonably priced food).
The location is also fantastic for day trips. We went to Montreux, Yvoire and Geneva, all within a very pleasant, easy drive.
Margot was a pleasure to deal with, and everything went exactly as promised.
Thank you for an amazing family holiday.

"Relaxing stay in beautiful village"
We enjoyed a great week here in late September - The house is well equiped and situated in a beatiful location with views from the front Balcony across Lake Geneva.
The booking and property access worked well, and there is plenty to do in the local area. It is perfectly situated to explore the local area on food or cycle. It is easy to get to other local towns [eg Evian] , further afield [eg Geneva] - All worth a vist.
We would certainly recommend it highly, and visit again.
The local Tennis Courts are virtually your own, certainly at that time of year - Nobody else ever played, and the local Tourist Office gave us our own key for the week for 35Euros [Originally said it was 10euros an hour], but happy to let us take a key and just post it back through their letterbox on the evening before we went home. A magnificent "back-drop" to some pretty average tennis endeavours!

"Beautiful chalet, stunning setting, spotlessly clean and well equipped"
We spent a week here and it was superb. The location is fantastic with views to the lake and there are beautiful walks from the chalet. The chalet itself is tastefully decorated and very warm and comfortable. The wider area has something for everyone. Overall, we couldn't recommend it highly enough.

"Lovely chalet with stunning surroundings"
We really enjoyed our stay here. Our stay was well organised by the owners, the chalet was very comfortable and well equipped and the views up to the mountains and down to the lake were fantastic.
Due to the position of the chalet (in a little hillside village) it is very peaceful and quiet. Our kids, in particular, loved it!

"A lovely, very well-equipped chalet with wonderful scenic views over Lake Geneva ."
A lovely, very well-equipped chalet with wonderful scenic views over Lake Geneva . Good bars, restaurants and pretty walks are within easy reach of the chalet - if you want peace and quiet with stunning scenery, this is the place to be!
The chalet is finished to a high standard and has everything needed for a winter or summer holiday plus it's a great base for sight-seeing. Lake-side Evian is only 15 minutes drive away and has great bars, restaurants, casino and markets. Geneva and Montreaux are well worth a visit, just a short distance around the lake. The beautiful town of Annecy is only just over an hour away and is a must-see.'
