    We spent a lovely weekend at the Chalet Rêves de Montagne. We had a very warm welcome and the chalet was cosy and comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble and information on things to see and do in the area made our stay even more interesting. The home cooked breakfast was super! I am looking forward to returning when the snow arrives!

    our first alpine summer experience was made perfect by our stay at Karen and Andy’s beautiful chalet.
    The warmest welcome,absolutely luxury in the chalet great customized breakfast,full, top information on local villages and walks..The Giffre valley is lovely in the early summer with wild flower meadows,don’t miss le fer de cheval.
    Karen and Andy’s hard work in setting up have paid off big time.All the little details make the stay special.
    Maybe we’ll be back for skiing?

    We had a fabulous stay at Reves de Montagne over the February half term. The Chalet is absolutely beautiful and, as a group of 15, all of our expectations were surpassed in every sense. Nothing seemed too much trouble for Karen and Andy, Phil’s cuisine was delicious and Dan & Sarah looked after us so well; It was a pleasure to have them around. Luxurious bedrooms, stunning bathrooms and a living space that you can’t wait to get back to at the end of a hard day on the slopes. It was also the little touches that made our stay so special, from the daily cup of tea in bed, to the replenished stock of Twix bars in the boot room every morning! We would love to come back to see what Reves de Montagne and the lovely Samoens have to offer in the Summer.

    We had a great time staying here over New Year 2014. The accommodation was superb; being a large family group it is difficult to find places where the rooms are of an equal standard and can say that here there were no arguments, they were fantastic! The skiing resort was excellent with a wide range of runs, made more perfect by a lift to and from the slopes (no long walks in your ski boots) and after a hard days skiing, a nice soak in the hot tub followed by drinks by the fire. The food here was exceptionally delicious, and the whole team looked after us very well; with Andy putting together a bonfire and fireworks for fun New Year’s Eve celebrations and Karen rescuing us from Flaine when one of the party had a small accident on the slopes. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and would love to come back soon.

    What more is there to say! Family and friends have just spent a fabulous week at Reves de Montagne and we can only echo what everyone else has said about the chalet and service – if you are looking for a luxury holiday, winter or summer, where all your needs are thoughtfully taken care of, then this is the place to go!!

    We would just like to thank you both for sharing your ‘dream’ chalet with us last week. John and I enjoyed the whole experience you have created at the chalet – You most certainly have thought of everything your guests need to enjoy a stress free skiing holiday. We particularly loved toasty boots each morning and worry free transport to and from the slopes.

    I found your website when trying to locate something a bit special, to mark and celebrate our Anniversary. It most certainly met our expectations and much, much more. Relaxing at the chalet was blissful, so comfortable in every respect, just what we needed. Log fires, welcoming sofas and fur throws to chill out and relax together – see romance is still alive!

    The food was absolutely fabulous, Phil most certainly is an amazing chef, the variety of dishes and flavours never ceased to surprise and dinner was most definitely one of the highlights of the day. We tried to think of our favourite meal, but it’s so difficult! Dan and Sarah also looked after us very well, nothing was too much trouble. They were both very charming and it was great to chat to them about their adventures. Perfect choice for your team.

    It’s a beautiful chalet with luxurious amenities and excellent service! It’s a very warm chalet, warm fireplace, warm people. We enjoyed the views, fluffy towels, superb food and wine. Thank you so much for your care and hospitality. Kudos to Karen and Andy and the team!

    A beautiful, cozy and homey chalet that will always come highly recommended by us. Karen, Andy and their team really made sure we felt at home and were always helpful and accommodating – something very much appreciated especially with a group with so many young children. Since our return home, friends and family have been asking about our trip and we find ourselves talking nonstop on how fantastic it all was. We just can’t stop reminiscing! Thank you once again for a fab holiday and we definitely hope to be back!

    ……………..tired of the piste? There are awesome off piste runs around Samoens and in the hands of qualified guides is an enjoyable and exhilarating experience – the glaciated valley to the east of the main ski area offers powder snow, views of Mont Blanc, spectacular countryside and culminates in a 70m abseil to the valley floor! I enjoyed a day’s tour in this area with Andy and two guides, an unforgettable outing and with a big smile on my face was very happy to drop into the hot tub afterwards. Andy, Karen and the team cannot do enough for you.

    We have found skiing heaven: a luxurious, beautiful chalet with all the necessary comforts (especially comfortable beds, hot showers and a proper outdoor hot tub to ease skiing aches and pains); superb cuisine – and wine; outstanding service and support from the team at the Chalet, and a plethora of skiing choices for skiers of all levels, all set in and around a charming village. The kids had a blast with the Reves de Montagne team (“snow wars” was a highlight, as was the food at kids’ dinners). We highly recommend Reves de Montagne, and look forward to returning regularly (in summer and winter).

    Thank you Karen and Andy for an absolutely fantastic holiday, which was truly special from start to finish. The food was delicious, the service way beyond expectations and the chalet itself is just so much more beautiful in real life than the photos do justice to.

    We wanted to give you a six out of five on Tripadvisor but it wouldn’t let us so I’m adding that rating here. 6/5 – absolute bliss. Thank you so much.

    This was our first family ski holiday and it couldn’t have been better! Karen & Andy went out of their way to make this a very special time for us. The chalet is stunning and in a very peaceful and scenic location. Each day, after a hearty breakfast, we were shuttled to the local lift station for a full day of skiing and picked up again at the end of the day. The Grand Massif is an excellent resort for all levels of skier and you could be on the slopes 20 minutes after leaving the chalet. After a day on the slopes when we got back to the chalet there was freshly baked cake, drinks and the hot tub waiting to help us relax even more. This was followed by canapés, a gourmet meal and some exceptional wines. Exceptional service all ’round!

    A HUGE thank you to Karen & Andy for making our stay in this winter wonderland so special and relaxed!

    The chalet is truely stunning, and finished to a very impressive, high standard. The charming little touches really complete the appeal for me…personalised chalkboard baskets in the bootroom and candles every night…amazing.

    I would not hesitate in recommending everything about this holiday, chalet perfection! Looking forward to our next stay already x

    What can I say….beautiful chalet, fabulous food and great hosts. We had a lovely ski break. Andy and Karen are fantastic hosts and go out of their way to make your holiday special. The bedrooms are very relaxing with a lovely bathroom, even though I didn’t use it I loved the fact the en-suite bathrooms had free standing baths! The living space is very social and we loved sitting by the amazing fireplace with glass of wine after a day on the slopes. A great chalet!

    Beautiful, comfortable and cosy chalet. Lovely food and great wine. Our baby loved crawling around on the wonderfully warm floor and the superb food served by the chef. Our son had lots of fun with his friends and keeps asking to go skiing again (and he now thinks that Andy will be driving every bus we get on!! ) I particularly loved being served a G&T in the hot tub and the huge bed with the cute heart-shaped window looking out onto the mountains. Just sorry I missed seing Bella the dog running down the slopes, my husband thought that was fab! Hope we can return one day!

    You have done a marvellous job renovating the farmhouse – it retains that lovely “old” feel with lots of character combined with a very up-to-date level of comfort. Big roaring fire, comfy sofas and throws, lovely warm duvets and huge fluffy towels, tasteful decor, magnificent views from the picture windows and huge hot tub all set the scene for a superior level of service. The food was scrumptious and we couldn’t have asked for more attention from you two. We really appreciated your enthusiasm and willingness help book lessons, massages etc and to go the extra mile in not only running us to and from the slopes but also taking us for tour of the valley etc. We have extolled the superiority of your chalet to everyone here and sent your link to friends in the US and UK. We cannot thank you enough for your generous hospitality. We have already been chatting about a possible return one summer to take advantage of good weather for cycling, sightseeing etc!
