"Home from home comfort and perfect location of Le Petit Chalet...should be Le Grand Chalet!"
We were a group of 2 families, 10 of us in total, all accommodated very comfortably in the spacious 5 bed-roomed chalet with wonderful views of the mountains.
The chalet has a lovely traditional, homely feel and was perfectly equipped for our needs, especially the 2 living areas ideal for our large group, with the children retiring to the living/playroom to play Xbox games or watch DVDs from the extensive library. Le Petit Chalet was warm and cosy inside, with wonderful hotel quality white bedlinen, a seemingly never-ending supply of hot water for constant showers and baths. There is also a lovely outside space around the chalet that even in mid-late March gave us the opportunity to catch some wonderful sunshine!
This was our first time in the resort of La Tzoumaz, easily accessible from Geneva. The pistes and snow were immaculate, and best of all not crowded. We never queued for the lifts/gondolas, and were also able to access the free ski bus which had a bus stop at the top of the driveway of Le Petit Chalet. We were also very impressed with the quality of instructors at the local Ski School – classes were small – much smaller than in France. At the end of the week, there was a lovely party at the ski school to give the children their badges, and gluhwein for the adults!
The resort itself is probably not the place to go to for wild nightlife, but was perfect for us on a family holiday, with a nice selection of local bars and restaurants which were easily accessible on foot from the chalet. It is fair to say, however, that the warmth and home comforts of Le Petit Chalet won us over, with a majority of our nights spent with a warming drink in front of the fire – we will be back!

"Great and comfortable chalet in a good location"
We stayed at Le Petit Chalet with friends and children for a short break in April. The chalet is easy to find and well located. The layout is perfect for sharing with another family and has many personal touches so it immediately feels like home.
Chalet is well situated to drive/walk into the centre of the village. It is an easy drive down to the slopes, or quick bus ride. We did this daily with our children (11 and 9) and it was hassle free. Overall would recommend for families looking for a high standard of self-catering accommodation in a lovely location, from where you can access good skiing. Would love to come back in the summer!

"Great skiing; great accomodation"
Easy drive to chalet. Amazing location and views. Very comfortable. The attention to detail and the high level of equipment means there is plenty to do inside when you don't fancy going out or the weather is ropey. Family and child friendly. Good facilities in the town. Fantastic skiing. Highly recommended. We're looking forward to a return visit out of the skiing season.
