We were a party of 12 people including young children and we spent a week in this amazing chalet. The location was perfect and very relaxing with stunning views. The spa was well used by everyone and the large garden was great for the children.
The chalet had everything we could have wanted and more.
We will definitely be back.
Chalet is in a fantastic location-easy access to chamonix via train or a nice 40 min walk. Large outdoor space and plenty of room for 12 people. Chalet was of an excellent standard, with great facilities. Would definitely recommend.
I don't think I can fault this Chalet at all. I've been scratching my head trying to think of one and no I really can't! We had a group of 11 staying and the chalet felt very spacious to us. We were in a bedroom next to the pool room with an ensuite which was a very welcome treat in a self catering property. Our room was absolutely grand for us but the piece de rresistance was the bedroom with the walk through wardrobe and massive bathroom. I think this is the 'whoever books the chalet' choice of room to stay in! But all the rooms are great and there a self contained apartment that leads out to the garden . It would be perfect for a couple with a child or two as the sofa can be made into a double bed. One thing to note is that the garden is open so you would have to keep an eye on very young ones.
But oh that garden! The best part of the day was lying on one of the loungers first thing in the morning just drinking in the view. Absolutely stunning and a memory I will treasure.
The sitting room and kitchen were perfect for a large group. Really comfy sofas - not the usual wipe clean leatherette you normally get in a self catering property. We had ample room to loll about of an evening. We only put the TV one once so we could watch the World cup final on the big pull down screen.
Thanks to the owners who upon hearing I had a feather allergy, went out and bought synthetic duvet and pillows for me. Thanks!
The chalet is in Les Bois so it's about a 40 minute walk into the centre of Chamonix which might be a plus or a minus for some. For us it was a big plus as the area around it is so green and quiet. As a keen runner I could run from right outside the door all the way into Chamonix and back via a very scenic route.
The best meals we had on holiday were the ones we had in the chalet as it comes equipped with everything you will need to cook a meal for a large group. Sitting outside of an evening on the big table with mountains all around was a true pleasure. I think this chalet is an excellent deal in the summer months for a big group so if you're into your hiking but want to go back to a bit of luxury at the end of the day then this chalet is for you. Can't wait to go back next year!

We've stayed in the Chalet for one month. It was May. Me, my husband and our 6-month son came there to have a fresh air after our noisy city. The position of the Chalet has two wonderful features - first of all it is Les Bois! This is grate place for vacation in summer! The river, the forest! Everybody ride bicycles there or just come to have camping during the day. There is a farm there on the river (5-10 min walk) where U can buy fresh cheese. It is also 5 km from Chamonix town. If U ride a bicycle or just walk U can take a nice road through the park! No cars around!:) And the second feature is open space around the Chalet! There are not a lot of houses in Les Bois or in the villages near by has open space! When U wake up in the morning and look in the window U can see the nature around but not a window of your neighbour:)
The house is new and modern, very clean (thanks Anne:). There U can have everything U want - nice bedrooms, bathrooms, cafe machine etc.)) The living room has fascinating view through the huge window!
We've had a wonderful vacation there! Thank U Philip!!:)
Wow! Staying at Chalet Cerisier is an over-the-top experience. Our extended family relished all of the many features of this fine home. The website, including its must-see video, only approximately captures the splendor, comfort and beauty of this new luxury accommodation. Credit brilliant siting and architecture to present transfixing views of the Massif de Mont Blanc. Anticipate a handsome traditional alpine exterior combined with a thoroughly modern interior, replete with natural woods and every high-tech appliance and electronic system that you could desire. The structure spans four storeys--including (1) a man-cave kitted out with a myriad of video games--an adolescent's dream, (2) billiards room, (3) sauna, (4) motorized projection screen coupled to high-end audio for TV, DVD's and your iPad, (5) large open wood-burning fireplace in the large open high-ceilinged living area. The outdoor Jacuzzi was enjoyed regularly by our entourage après ski. Adding to the creature comforts: find the glove and boot warmer in the garage.
WiFi is o.k. for rural France.
We much enjoyed the tiny tranquil hamlet of Les Bois--fun to walk around. The Chalet is set back from Av.des Les Bois--look for mail box displaying nr 261, then drive down the adjacent drive to end.
It's about 100 m to the bus stop. Local trains and buses--every 15 min--are free. However, hiring a car is indicated.
Anne, the Australian concierge, is a delight. She is very knowledgeable re Chamonix's great assortment of excellent restaurants, shops and attractions. Be sure to have her explain carefully in full detail all the high-tech complexities of this home. Take notes. She can direct you to Le Comptoir, the small general store in nearby Les Praz with some of the best croissants in Savoie. Procurement became a very enjoyable daily morning ritual.
The British owners Phil and Val were very accommodating, facilitating all booking details. We hope to return.
