This is a lovely development using re-sited old Mazots to form small chalets. Placed in Le Levancher and therefore in the middle of nowhere but with a great view. The place is absolutely charming, the staff are most helpful and the ambience delightful. The downside is that the prices are simply ridiculous. To the extent that I thought the accommodation...

Loved everything….. Amazing location close enough to Chamonix and to the slopes but quiet and away from downtown. Staff were exceptional catering to my every need, I stayed in the chalet "Les Clarines" is was beautiful. Towels soft and cozy, bed very comfortable and lined with flannel sheets in winter. Delicious breakfast just what you want to eat when you...

The dining room is inside an authentic Chalet set on a ridge overlooking the valley. Several course later and some fantastic wine was followed by a cheese course I will remember for a lifetime. The owner noticed I was alone and joined me for dinner. Experience of a lifetime and well worth the journey.

Had a fabulous time staying in Les Clarins, a gorgeous little chalet with private hot tub. The food in the restaurant was out of this world and the staff were really attentive and friendly. We will definitely return!

Just got back from one of my best mountain week ends, thanks to this amazing place!!! For those looking for peace, nature and real personalized services, Chalets de Philippe is the place for you! It perfectly combines the beauty of traditional mountain chalets together with luxury services, though in a warm and family-like atmosphere, very unusual in popular mountain places...

This was just the perfect getaway. The location was spot on, tucked away within the mountains looking out over champonix. The chalet was so cosy, clean and warm. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially when my car broke down at the bottom of the mountain. We were saved by staff who rescued us and then helped tow my...

Les Chalets de Philippe is the perfect place to escape from stress and routine while living a unique experience which re-defined for me what I considered as luxury. Upon arrival, you are warmly welcomed by Philippe before you are taken to your own chalet. Once settled down in the chalet, it is time to relay and enjoy? Right outside of...

I felt like I had entered a scene from the Hobbit. To say that this place is quaint, would be an understatement. What a fantastic property! Apparently, all of the chalets were purchased and transported from their original locations. We arrived weary and frazzled and were given a very warm and kind reception by Philippe. We were a little apprehensive...

This accommodation catered to every childhood fantasy whilst assuring every luxury required as an adult was answered. We stayed for three nights in our chalet Les Clarines and on arrival, I admit even knowing the chalet was small from time of booking it was still an initial surprise, however it was not a problem, it added to the feeling of...

We had a wonderful stay at Les Chalets de Philippe last week. The food was excellent and prepared right in our living room. The menu changes daily and there was good variety, along with a good wine list featuring a nice range of price points. The rooms were smaller than we've grown accustomed to at some larger chain hotels, but...
