There is a truism in the restaurant business that restaurant quality is in inverse proportion to the quality of the view. Les Chalets de Philippe blows that saying into the weeds. Here you get some of the best views on the planet, and I daresay, some of the best food. Other reviewers have remarked on the fairytale setting and it...

My husband and I spent 5 nights in Clarines chalet. The grounds were bursting with colorful flower planters and surrounded by large fir trees. The fairytale tone is consistent throughout without fail. Our terrace had a picnic table for 2 or 3 people, 2 loungers and a hot tub. The full view of the Mont Blanc range is breathtaking. It...

I was looking for a special place for my husband's birthday and this delivered at all levels - location, accommodation and service. We stayed in les trolles which is a beautiful chalet, exquisitely furnished but also comfortable and well equipped. The chalet has a sunny terrace and stunning view across to mont blanc. At night all the chalets are illuminated...

Chalet Philippe is a collection of 1 bedroom Mazots tucked away in a small mountain village "Lavancher" between Argentiere and Chamonix. We have visited Chamonix lots of times over the past 10 years but nothing has compared with the experience of staying at Chalet Phillipe. It is totally tranquil, the sleep quality is superb, the views fantastic, accomodation warm and...
