“Appartement de qualité dans chalet savoyard”
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cet appartement spacieux et aux prestations de qualité. Shelley est une hôte très sympathique et attentionnée. L'appartement est joliment décoré et la vue directe sur le Mont Blanc est superbe. Les pistes de ski sont à 5 minutes grâce à la navette qui s'arrête près du chalet. La séance de sauna offerte est un vrai plaisir pour se relaxer après une bonne journée de ski.
“Комфорт, дружелюбие и великолепные горы”
Мы с нашими друзьями отдыхали в Квартире Les Hiboux в начале января 2013г. При выборе места отдыха я переживала по поводу катания непосредственно рядом с жильем (Saint-Gervais-les-Bains) , но решила, что в крайнем случае будем ездить в Шамони - не далеко, около получаса езды (мы всегда арендуем машину чтобы поездить и посмотреть побольше). Могу сказать, что местный горнолыжный курорт понравился гораздо больше - народу (в т. ч. соотечественников) меньше, еда на горе вкуснее и дешевле и ландшафт более разнообразный. Уютное жилье, постели, белье очень хорошие. Хозяева очень дружелюбные, милые люди. Удобно, что они жили рядом, поэтому в случае необходимости всегда можно было обратиться за помощью. В то же время жилье обособлено, достаточно просторно, с отдельным входом и террасой с великолепным видом. В общем, я с чистой совестью могу рекомендовать эти апартаменты для отдыха.
“Amazing location and views”
We stayed here for Christmas and had a wonderful holiday. The apartment is on the ground floor of the chalet and is very private from the owners accomodation. The location is amazing with th views of Mont Blanc from every window. The evening light catches the mountain and gives it a pink glow! The location of the property is perfect for skiing, there is a bus but we used our car to go the 5 mins to the mid point cable car station at Le Bettex. Fantastic skiing for all abilities and friendly staff working on the lifts. Very pretty tree lined runs and lots of variety. The apartment had a very well equipped kitchen and we had no problem preparing a full Christmas roast dinner. St Gervais is a very pretty town. A car is essential for this property. Owners were on hand to sort out any problems and were very helpful.
“Well-equipped, comfortable, great location and an incredible view”
This was our 3rd winter visit to Les Hiboux and we hope to go back soon, perhaps in the summer. We like the location - convenient for the bus or the short drive to the lifts. Kitchen has everything you could need - including a bottle of local wine chilling in the fridge when you arrive! An impeccably clean and well-presented apartment. The hosts are charming and attentive.
“a verry nice and lovely appartment”
Hello Shelly und Andy, wir durften im Sommer diesen Jahres eure Gäste sein und haben sehr wohl gefühlt. Es ist eine fantastisch gelegene und eingerichtete Ferienwohnung mit gehobenem Standard. Allles was man benötigt ist vorhanden. Sogar einen Saunabenutzung ist möglich. Das Willkommen bei Euch war sehr, sehr herzlich. Der freie Blick auf den Mont Blanc von allem Zimmern ist fantastisch und hat uns jeden Tag aufs neue begeistert. Die gegend ist im Sommer sehr ruhig, wer es mag (wie wir) fühlt sich sehr wohl. Wir, eine kleine Familie (2 Erwachsene, 2 Kinder) können dieses schöne Haus sehr empfehlen. Vielleicht kommen wir mal wieder! Viele Grüße Tino, Sabine, Theo und Willi
“5 Star accomodation at a very reasonable price”
We had a lovely week at Apartment Les Hiboux. It was extremely comfortable, very well kitted out and beautifully furnished. It also had one of the most magnificant views of Mont Blanc ever - from every room as well as the garden. I would highly recommend this place to anyone - really suitable for a family, a couple, a group of friends, or even someone on their own.
“Beautiful location,wonderful accommodation.”
The chalet is situated in a stunning location within easy reach of beautiful mountain walks. Our hosts Shelley and Andy were extremely welcoming and very helpful in providing information on the local area and must see places. The closeness of lakes for swimming and tourist spots such as Chamonix and Annecy was a real bonus. Our trip on the Mnt Blanc railway from St Gervais les Bain was also a highlight. The apartment was extremely comfortable with everything you needed and more. The wifi was also handy with three teenage daughters! The views from the apartment were spectacular especially early evening watching the sun set. We look forward to our next visit.
“A stunning chalet for all seasons”
Les Hiboux far exceeded our expectations and how often can one say that about a holiday rental? The apartment comprises most of the ground floor of a traditional alpine chalet & the views from the main rooms and garden terrace across to the Mont Blanc massif are simply stupendous. The chalet was comfortable, well furnished and has a kitchen equipped with plenty of utensils, equipment and gadgets for guests who like cooking and really want to make the most of the local produce. St Gervais les Bains has a large weekly outdoor market in the town square and there are lots of other shopping or dining out within easy reach. Les Hiboux is located just below the ski station of Le Bettex and complimentary shuttle buses stop near the chalet to ferry people up to the year round bubble lift. From the top station there is access (either via another bubble, footpath or ski) down to the stylish resort of Megeve. Shelley and Andy were perfect hosts, easily contactable and helpful with local information or quickly resolving any problems or queries.
“Amazing location, stunning views and superb accomodation”
Thankyou Shelley and Andy for making us feel so welcome. Being able to relax in comfort with the stunning views of Mont Blanc made it a trip never to forget. We can't wait to come back. The chalet is situated in possibly one of the most beautiful locations you can think of and is equipped with just about everything you would need to make a great stay.
