“Absolute Top Quality !”
Reviewed 22 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

You know you've stayed in a great place when you leave after a week's skiing and can't wait to get back there. The penthouse consists of two floors at the top of a roomy, attractive chalet, just walking distance to one of the ski lifts. The chalet is pure luxury - we had a bedroom with a large window looking straight out at one of the nicest red runs in the area. The small town is just moments away on foot and has sufficient restaurants, bars, etc. A little further is the delightful village/town of Chatel, with plenty of facilities. Being part of the Porte du Soleil, it is a great base for exploring a much wider ski area, including Avoriaz and Les Gets. Many thanks to Jacqui and Martin - they ensured that we had a most wonderful time.

“Amazing !”
Reviewed 17 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Our second visit to Penthouse Caribou did not disappoint.
The location of this spacious chalet allows easy access to some amazing and vast terrain for all abilities..Great lunchtime cafés and restaurants on the slopes allow for taking in the stunning scenery . Après ski in Chatel is lively but far enough away as not to disturb the peace and tranquility of the chalet.
Early morning walks to the local patisserie for fresh bread and croissants is a must !
Whether you choose to drive or fly (we have done both) Penthouse Caribou is easy to get to and easy to find.
We will definitely be back !

“Lovely spacious accommodation”
Reviewed 8 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We stayed in Penthouse Caribou during the third week of January and thoroughly enjoyed it. Communication with the owner beforehand was very good and helpful. Owner lives on the premises so is on hand to sort out any problems that may occur or answer any questions, give recommendations for restaurants etc. The penthouse is extremely spacious, different sitting areas, large dining table, kitchen a little small for the size of the apartment but everything you can think of is there in terms of kitchen equipment. Good comfortable beds, spacious bedrooms and we had a lovely bathroom. Great views from every room. Just a five minute walk to the local ski area or to the bus stop. Buses to Chatel and the far side of Chatel cost €1.50 each way (or €1 if you buy a book of 10 from the tourist office) and are not very frequent, but you can avoid this if you start skiing from the local lift Panthiaz. Delicious bread
from the local bakery which again is only a five minute walk away.
Would certainly recommend this penthouse.

“Spacious gorgeous Chalet with wonderful views”
Reviewed 5 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We stayed in this ski penthouse chalet with a group of friends, as we walked in we were blown away by the wonderful views of the slopes and the spacious accommodation.

Previous chalet ski accommodation has felt a little cramped, this could not have been further from the truth in Penthouse Caribou, the bedrooms were very spacious, there were plenty of bathrooms to go round (many ensuite) and the living space was exceptional. Pool table, balconies and different seating areas made it a perfect for large groups.

The small town itself is small and friendly, well provided for with bars, restaurants and a lovely village bakery / deli. There is a local farm around the corner where you can directly buy the local cheese - delicious! There is also a great local restaurant within 5 minutes walk for typical local mountain specialties. You can walk to the local ski slope in a few minutes or take the ski bus to access the massive Portes Du Soleil region.

In short, a luxurious penthouse apartment in a fabulous location and only around 90 mins from Geneva. Highly recommend and would certainly return.
