Our second ever ski holiday as a young family (kids 11,10 and 7), and first in a fully catered chalet. We stayed in La Petite Ourse, which is designed for a single family (ie not shared with other families/guests). Sam and the team at Absolute Alpine ensured that the entire holiday was wonderful - from the process of booking the... More

We have recently returned from another fantastic stay at Apartment La Roche! Having stayed there before, we knew what luxury awaited us. Jamie welcomed us on this visit and he was extremely friendly and helpful, giving us his mobile number in case we needed anything during our stay. The apartment is fabulously comfortable. The beds are amazing and the 2... More

Our group of five adults and four young children were completely and utterly spoiled for the week we stayed at the Grand Ourse. The chalet itself is lovely and very well equipped with everything from a hot tub to a Wii to an honesty bar. An easy walk into town, and gorgeous views. We were looking forward to a week... More

8 of us (adults) stayed for a week in Chalet La Roche and had a wonderful stay. The chalet is lovely and has a great layout with a big open plan kitchen/dining/living area that accommodated us all. The kitchen was clean and well equipped and we could all fit comfortably around the dining table. The beds were super comfy and... More

Our adult group of 12 stayed for a week at the start of Feb. The team made us very welcome and could not do enough. The chalet itself is very clean and well appointed. It is spacious and has everything you might need. If you are a light sleeper I would take ear plugs though as sound does travel. You... More

We stayed as a group of 10 in January and had the chalet plus apartment downstairs. We had a wonderful week and unanimously loved the chalet in every respect. It compares very favourably with others we have stayed in being extremely well appointed, clean and with very comfortable beds in all rooms. So convenient for the town and bread shop... More

The location is great, only a steps to the charming village and a couple minutes drive to the gondola. The house is really great, well taken care of, big rooms, well designed, super kitchen. We also booked the (downstairs) adjoining apartment which together with the Chalet was perfect for our large group, there was no problem eating and drinking together,... More

Our family of 5 (including 1 baby) stayed a week in the apartment below chalet L Roche. We were greeted by Jamie who welcomed us and showed us around. There was a lovely welcome pack with the essentials required to tie you over until the shops open (plus some home made biscuits)! The apartment has everything you need, plus the... More

Chalet La Roche is perfectly located within walking distance of the ski slopes and the town centre. We were treated kindly throughout our stay. Not only is the chalet large, but it is beautiful and homely. The best holiday accommodation I have ever had.
