“Winter dream in famous mountain region”
Reviewed 9 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Chalet Etoile Polaire is a very beautiful chalet with fantastic view over the Rhonetal and you can see the Matterhorn from the terrace and balcony.
All rooms are cosy and tastefully furnished and the bathrooms are new, modern and useful.
The kitchen is very well equipped, you will find everything you need (and more).
We enjoyed our stay very much, the Chalet and the ski area as well.

So pleased to know that you all enjoyed yourselves at the chalet and at the resort.
Switzerland's 4 Valleys is the country's top ski domain and more than 400 kilometres of wonderful skiing with over 90 lifts which skiers always appreciate. The chalet enjoys a great location too - so all in all a perfect location for a winter sports holiday

“First class chalet and top conditions”
Reviewed 16 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Our second stay in the Etoile Polaire was like a home-coming. With its big living area, well appointed kitchen, 5+ beds, 3 bathrooms and sauna, it is perfect for hosting a large group. The chalet has stunning panoramic views of the Alps and is centrally situated and with easy access.

In addition to the home comforts, we managed to get the weather right and enjoyed a week of sunshine and blue skies with plenty of snow throughout the system and no queuing.

“Fabulous chalet, extremely comfortable, stupendous views”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We were two families with teenagers, total 8, staying for one week's summer hiking. The chalet was perfect and all of us thought it was the nicest place we'd ever rented in the Alps over the many winter and summer holidays we've spent in the mountains. It is only 2 hours straightforward drive from Geneva (though the road up inevitably includes a lot of hairpin bends). The Thyon/Les Collons/Val d'Herens area offers a great variety of easy to strenuous hikes amidst wonderful scenery, much of it relatively quiet and unspoiled: beyond the ski areas, the villages (eg Evolene) are traditional and full of character, while Sion in the main valley is a fascinating place to visit. The chalet itself is impeccable: very well-equipped, extremely comfortable, spacious, cosy and airy, with a fabulous balcony extending around two sides with stupendous views up and down the valleys. The directions and tips from the owner, and help from the caretaker on site, were great (eg the DVD broke down on us and the caretaker immediately got us a new one!) I also think it was extremely good value as chalets of this standard typically cost a great deal more.

“A perfect match to the needs of our large self-cateing family group”
Reviewed 17 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

L'Etoile Polaire is centrally situated in Thyon Les Collons. It is a spacious, recently built chalet with a traditional look and feel. The airy cathedral ceiling gives a lightness to the large main living area. The chalet is well equipped and well designed and is modern, clean and in excellent condition. Excellent service and organization by the owners and the caretaker make for carefree holidays. Plenty of plumbing including 4 showers, a charming wooden bath and a sauna. Good sized bedrooms, wide terraces with splendid views on the mountains.
There were 9 of us for our annual ski-week including 4 children 9 - 14 and we all really enjoyed this lovely home.

“Great Chalet, Beautiful Resort”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

This is a very well equipped, comfortable, cosy, chalet, exceedingly well situated for shops, ski lift, access, and lots of other amenities and has absolutely stunning views and good privacy. The local people were warm, friendly and helpful. Skiing was excellent, with LOTS of choice and ski school good too. Ski hire was really good too. We enjoyed post skiing swims @ Thyon also. Nice restaurants, It feels like it is loved, and that the owners understand your needs. I find it difficult to find anything to be critical of. Thank you so much for sharing your home, there were 8 of us, from Grandpa down to 10 month granddaughter, and we had a stunning holiday. We are looking forward to coming back in the summer too if we can.
