We have recently returned from a family walking holiday. The flat is ideally situated and comfortable for a family of 4 - it had the best equipped kitchen that we have rented. Shops, restaurants, ski lifts and bus stop are all within easy walking distance. The owners are very helpful and provided a wealth of information covering all aspects of the holiday from assistance with transfers to walking ideas. We were also provided with Liberte passes which gave us free travel on the local buses, most ski lifts, various swimming pools, minigolf and museums. We didn't need to hire a car as the transport links are so good. A great holiday in a beautiful location.
The best thing about this place is its location-convenient for just about everything: the lifts, the buses, the bars and restaurants and the coop! Everthing was on our doorstep.
The appartment is well equipped with all mod cons and an extensive reading and video library and Shirley kindly gave us information about the area and about how best to use the passes and discover our surroundings. We wanted an active yet relaxing holiday and it was just that! The whole valley has many well-marked hiking and mountain biking trails.
I loved the beauty and tranquillity of this place in mid-summer and am sure it would be equally spectacular in the winter.
This was our first skiing trip and we weren't quite sure what to expect. Although Shirley and Robin had thoroughly briefed us, we were thrilled with what we found! The village of Grimentz is picturesque and exactly as you see it in the photos. The apartment is great, there were 5 of us, 4 adults and a teenager and even after a week we never felt cramped, or on top of one another.
The apartment has everything you could need for a pleasant relaxed stay with all the home comforts, - from unlimited wifi, games and even a Nespreso coffee machine. All the equipment and furnishings are in excellent condition and when we arrived the apartment was spotless.
We loved our stay in the apartment (you begin to think of it as home after a while!) and fell in love with Grimentz. Will definitely be going back again soon.
From the moment we arrived until the moment we left Apartment Bon Sejour our stay in this marvellous location was a pleasure.
Throughout the booking and organisation the owners had responded quickly with both friendly and detailed information regarding the apartment, location, check-in etc. Then, when we arrived and had collected the keys we soon discovered that exactly the same level of care and attention regarding guest comfort had gone into the apartment as well. From the high standard of the kitchen, appliances, furniture, games/books etc. provided we were overwhelmed with the level of thought that had gone into every detail.
The apartment itself is set in an incredibly convenient location right in the beautiful, picture postcard village of Grimentz and the surrounding valley is equally stunning with snow capped peaks all around. There is also so much to do in the valley in summertime from outdoor activities, swimming, tennis, mini-golf, an observatory....and the bus connections are excellent allowing easy movement between the various villages throughout the day.
Plus, thanks to the Liberte pass included with the apartment when we were there the cost of enjoying the buses, cable cars and most other activities was already covered! It was fantastic.
I wouldn't normally write so much in a review, but I really can't speak highly enough of our time here this August. We definitely plan to return to apartment Bon Sejour in future summers and perhaps try a winter trip as well.
