Staying at Chez Bear Ski Lodge was a special treat. The lodge is a warm and wonderful work of art, beautifully constructed and decorated like a cross between a ski lodge and a British Pub. Our GPS guided us through the town or we would have struggled to locate Chez Bear. We were welcomed by Mike, who gave us a... More

Absolutely beautiful, amazing construction and great hosts. So far the high light of our motorcycle trip around the Alps and Italy. You feel as if you never want to leave, it's that cozy, even in summer! Mike is SO accommodating, nothing seems to be a problem, every request is greeted with a smile. He even gave us a lift to...

A wonderful base for our cycle weekend where we stayed for 4 nights. Great hospitality in a beautiful setting. Highly recommended. Fabulous breakfasts and great coffee set us up perfectly for the mountain climbs. Chez Bear is in a quiet location about 2kms from Briancon and Mike provided an excellent taxi service so we could sample the local restaurants for... More

This has to be one of the best catered chalets in the resort of Serre Chevalier. From being collected at Turin Airport to being dropped back seven days later there was nothing too much of a problem for our hosts Helen & Mike. Where to start….. Helens cookery skills - Absolutely fantastic, not your usual Lasagna or Spag Bol pasta... More

This was our second visit to Chez Bear and, again, we have no hesitation in recommending the place to others. The lodge itself is really nice; especially the interior which has wow-factor. The real magic though is delivered by Helen and Mike. Both are genuinely nice people; Helen is super-skilled in the kitchen, and Mike does an excellent job of... More

Amazing chalet! Amazing hosts! Unbelievable food! Our group had an amazing week at Chez Bear; lived up to & beyond all expectations. Mike was a brilliant host, running the front of house, serving the food & drinks etc & keeping us entertained with his fantastic banter. While Helen made the most wonderful dishes of food (& the amazing cakes for... More

I couldn't recommend this place enough. My usual concern for a holiday, being a vegetarian, is the food. But Helen coooked some lovely food and catered to my needs having advised my dietary requirement in advance. The Chalet itself was very homely and Mike and Helen were great hosts, making us feel extremely welcome. Thanks for a great holiday!

Just returned from our second stay at Chez Bear and once again we couldn't fault it. Incredible chalet with perfect hosts, amazing food and brilliant skiing. Nothing is too much for Helen and Mike and we felt thoroughly spoilt and relaxed after a hard days skiing - cannot wait to go back again next year!

This was arguably the best chalet we have ever stayed in. The property, the food, the facilities, and the views from the property were all beyond the most superlative of reviews, many of the hours on the journey home were spent discussing the best menu of the week, or the best bit, or which movie was best in the cinema...

We really enjoyed are stay at Chez Bear. Very comfortable and homey. Mike and Helen did a wonderful job taking care of everyone. Mike ensured our wine glasses were filled including running down to the theatre room on the bottom floor to refresh our drinks. Helen is a fantastic cook and I only wish they owned a restaurant in Harrogate.... More
