Well equipped, clean and great new kitchen. Whilst the other family in our group had their own space there was enough room in our apartment for sociable communal eating.
Easy access to the Valmeinier 1800 by car or bus and lovely valley side setting in a very family orientated resort.
Rob and Karen are very friendly and helpful with excellent local knowledge. We'd definitely go back.
This was our fourth trip to Valmeinier and Grange Bernard. - three of the trips were for skiing, one for cycling.
Valmeinier and Grange Bernard are an easy trip from Geneva, about two hours drive in total. Our first trip was for cycling and we liked the area and chalet so much we decided to try it for skiing. The skiing is fantastic for us - the children have all learned to ski and the instructors have been brilliant. Kit hire, passes are all easy to arrange and the village is never too busy as it is smaller than some of its neighbours and less well known, the result being that there are little or no queues, even in half term. Parking can be a bit difficult up in the village but it is possible to ski in and out of the chalet when the snow is good.
It is equally inviting for all cycling enthusiasts. Many of the iconic Alpine climbs are within easy access of the chalet, with Rob providing expert advice and guidance.
The chalet itself is lovely - simple, well maintained, spotlessly clean and recently updated. Everything needed is there, and Rob and Karen are excellent hosts. They are always there to provide local knowledge and help where needed.
We would have no hesitation in recommending the resort and the chalet. We have already booked our return ski trip for next year!
Our fourth visit to grange Bernard, comfortable and the new kitchen in apartment 1 makes it a home from home. If you are skiing it's a walk up to a level area to get to the slopes, approx 15-20 mins but easily done. Rob and Karen always very hospitable and everything went to plan. Easy access by car to the property with convenient parking. valmeinier and valloire offer a large range of red and blue ski runs, still not discovered by too many Brits so no queues at any lifts out of half term weeks. A few restaurants in valmeinier but considerably more in valloire along with many shops and bars. Highly recommend a visit
Beau chalet, spacieux, jolie vue et propriétaire très gentil.
Mais cuisine à rafraichir d'urgence, même pas de grille pain.
Attention il y a deux appartements dans le même chalet et pas d'isolation, c'est donc bruyant, vous vivez avec les voisins.
Pistes en réalité à plus de 500m et 700m pour le télésiège marche ski au pied, un peu calvaire.
La station (1800) est à plus de 20mn à pieds (pour des adultes ou ados) et en montant (à aller), par la route ou la piste idem, et plus de navette après 17h40, la aussi un peu galère.
Vu l'éloignement un appareil à raclette et fondue seraient les bien venu afin d'éviter la marche militaire à 8h de matin pour rendre la matériel au commerçant.
Conclusion cette location à du charme, mais pour des vacanciers qui skient peu, qui acceptent de prendre la voiture tous les jours et que le bruit ne dérange pas.
Nous avons quand même apprécier nos vacances, mais on est un peu resté sur notre faim.
We stayed in Rob and Karen’s Chalet in Spring 2014. The place was perfectly clean and fully functional with more than enough crockery and utensils. There were electric rings and a microwave for cooking and a good size fridge / freezer too. The hot water and heating in the chalet were particularly good. The internal temperature remained perfect throughout our stay, via a heated floor downstairs and radiators in the bedrooms. The internet connection was generally good and perfectly acceptable for email and the like, which was important as we found free WiFi spots in the local area still somewhat scarce. We arrived by car and found that - for us - the chalet was very well positioned. It is slightly below the resort of Valmeinier and is the last building in a short row of detached chalets with really great views down the valley. There is plenty of space for parking and even a garage underneath for storage and repairs of whatever equipment you have brought with you. If all this were not enough a mention of the hosts is now in order. Rob and Karen were the perfect hosts, they have thought through what guests are likely to require and made the necessary provisions. They are a really thoughtful, helpful and affable couple and a pleasure to stay with. We have already mentioned this place to our friends and family alike and now to all those who are curious enough to read these reviews. If Valmeinier is where you would like to go, then this accommodation is a very good bet. We were very happy with it and certainly have pleasure in now recommending it.
Grange Bernard is a spacious chalet in the small resort Valmeinier which is linked to the larger resort of Valloire. The chalet itself has everything you need to feel at home along with very welcoming and knowledgeable hosts Rob & Karen. The chalet is handy for skiing in both resorts and is only a short (2 minute) drive to the shops and restaurants in Valmeinier. We stayed in the larger chalet which slept 8 which was more than adequate for our needs. The views across and down the valley are wonderful and you can also see when the ski lifts up to Valloire have started running.
Overall we had a lovely holiday and I would thoroughly recommend the chalet to anyone.
