Discover the secret Alps

Who Are We?

Sixt Alpine Chalet opened it’s doors for the first time in February 2007 following an 18 month renovation of Chalet L’Alpee. Since then we have had the privilege of meeting some lovely people who have become friends and we welcome back year after year.

Being keen skiers, hikers and climbers our aim was to create a chalet holiday that we would want to go on. The result is a real home-from-home chalet accommodation and unrivalled service from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it – read what previous guests say about us below, or visit our Trip Advisor page.

We look forward to welcoming you at any time of the year.

Perfect stay on a dream location We loved our holiday in the chalet. Sean and Julia are very helpful and nice. The chalet is spacious and clean. The views from the garden and balcony are stunning. We will sure come back here one day.

Lovely owner catered chalet with friendly hosts Beautifully situated chalet with stunning views overlooking the village and mountains. Sean and Juliette are extremely friendly hosts providing delicious food and amazing cakes with tea in the afternoon. The accommodation is spotless and very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble during our short skiing break and we appreciated Sean taking us to the ski lifts in the morning and picking us up after a day on the slopes. Spectacular views from the hot tub!

Fab ski chalet A great holiday in a lovely ski chalet in Sixt. Sean and Julia are fantastic hosts who couldn’t be more accommodating. The chalet is warm and welcoming, the food delicious and the transportation to and from the main ski lifts a godsend. It was lovely to be so well looked after and Sean and Julia are great with the kids. All in all a great value ski holiday, thank you.

Fabulous! A fabulous ski break c/o Sean & Julia, who really do offer first class service. It was so great to be chauffeured from/to the airport and to the various nearby resorts each day, taking all the stress and hassle out of skiing.' The chalet is as beautiful as it looks in the pictures and Julia is a tremendous cook even if she doesnt have a Michelin Star yet. The skiing is really good for beginners and intermediates in particular with access to a very varied and large ski area.

Great chalet in a quiet mountain village Sixt is not a "typical" ski resort so don't expect to walk out onto the slopes but the transfer service provided by Sean meant that reaching the main uplift from Samoens was a hassle-free experience. Sean and Julia are welcoming and friendly hosts - and although our group challenged their catering abilities a little - 1 Vegan, 1 Vegetarian, 1 with some idiosyncratic allergies and 1 omnivore - they rose to the challenge and generally succeeded. Did I mention the cakes? The chalet itself is well appointed and comfortable and we thought it very good value, especially for the two singles. An evening out in Sixt is not a lively experience and the number of venues is limited but we were warmly welcomed at "le tortillard" where it was possible to find vegan food and we learned a new word - "houblon" - during the obligatory sampling of the local brew.

Beautiful Chalet, Very Welcoming Hosts, Idyllic Location We booked for a short Christmas break, two families with 5 children (mainly young teenagers). Sean was very quick with email responses, answering every question and being very helpful. We were collected at Geneva, from the moment we stepped off the plane Sean and Julia were welcoming, accommodating, friendly, and did everything they could to ensure our Christmas was memorable. Our first day of skiing wasn't the best for the kids, so they took us to a different resort. They loaned us lift passes so we could avoid the queues; helped with ski hire at their local shop, collected us when we'd finished. The food was incredible - a Christmas day feast, and on all other days delicious food for post-skiing. We enjoyed sitting in the hot tub with an idyllic view over the village of Sixt, and on our last day took a walk up to the Cirque, with stunning scenery in the mountains. Would we go back? Hell yes, without a doubt. Thank you Sean and Julia, you are a lovely couple and made our Christmas very special.

A fab ski chalet From the moment we enquired about booking until the end of our holiday, Sean and Julia couldn’t do enough for us. The pickup was on time and very straightforward. The chalet was lovely with plenty of space for all the guests to relax. The food was great. Highly recommended.

Home from home Starting with airport pick up, delicious cake welcome, beautifully arranged accommodation, deer in the back yard, collection of passes and ski gear, very tasty 3 course dinners with wine, cosy and spotless bedrooms, hot tub with amazing views.....those are just a few things which spring to mind thinking of mine and my son's short break last week! Sean and Julia's love for the place is very transparent and it certainly rubbed on me - thank you so much. I truly hope I will come back:-))

Great Chalet and Great Hosts I stayed with my daughter for a quick 3 day ski break. Sean and Julia couldn't have been more hospitable and welcoming. The food was great and the views from the chalet are spectacular. Transport to and from the slopes worked like a dream, with no waiting around, and they also had great links to the local ski hire shop. (A tip for future equipment renters - don't pre-book your ski hire as the shop will give you the same discount, without losing their share to the middle man agency - so everyone wins all round.) I now need to go on a diet to work off some of Julia's fabulous cakes ! Highly recommended +++

Perfect Chalet, Hosts and Location We visited the Sixt Alpine Chalet at the end of January for a week. We had an amazing time mainly due to the kind hospitality shown by Sean & Julia, they made sure everything ran seemly from the transfers to daily pack-ups! The food was amazing with such a great variety and to die for delicious cakes!!! The Chalet is stunning, warm and very cosy - the hot tub was also a lovely treat after a day on the slopes. We will definitely return and very much recommend!
