Stayed with Mountain Air Holidays last year and went back again this year for 7 days B&B. Paul and Helen are great, friendly hosts. Really helpful with suggestions of other things to do, places to visit etc. when I was not biking. Would happily stay here again.

One week a year for the all important skiing holiday means its important to get it right! And Chalet des Arbres does exactly that. Paul & Helen, the owners and hosts could not be any more accommodating and really make the guests feel that nothing is a problem. Location has been given four stars rather than five just because I...

Very good location just on the edge of Chatel village centre, and on the road to the slopes, with views, a 5-10 minute walk from the village, albeit a brisk up hill one on the way there - excellent food - excellent help and support from the owners, all in a cosy, warm and traditional chalet.

You'll read a lot of guff about chalets being offering a warm welcome, and owners inviting you into their family and community. In our experience it's usually a superficial,blank eyed commercial transaction, with just enough warmth to appear welcoming, but a lack of anything remotely genuine. Not so with Chalet des Arbres - Helen and Paul, Mike & Lucy offered... More

We stayed in August for 10 nights and had the most wonderful time. The chalet was spotless, the food was plentiful & beautifully cooked and the all round hospitality was beyond our expectations. We spent long days exploring the area using our multi pass on local buses & ski lifts before retiring to the jacuzzi late each afternoon. We managed... More

I came across Mountain Air Holidays by chance when researching Chatel. I had used a very expensive operation twice and was sick overpaying. The week in Chatel was brilliant. The transfer is included in the rate as is having your skis carried back and forth. You get used to being spoiled very fast. Paul and Helen, the owners, are incredibly... More

My husband and I went skiing in March and stayed with Paul and Helen. This was my husbands first time skiing and for both of us we have never stayed in a catered chalet before. Needless to say, we enjoyed it so much that we have booked to go back again in January this time. Everything was perfect from the... More

We have recently returned from a great family holiday in Chatel staying at Chalet Des Arbres. Paul and Helen looked after us superbly; most appreciated was their advice on local activities and places to visit. It was wonderful to see the mountains in the summer months and the area around Lake Geneva. We were holidaying with our 3 year old... More

We had a fantastic stay at the Chalet Des Arbres in July. The chalet has everything you would want: it’s comfortable, clean, large and well-equipped, with a brilliant outdoor hot tub and a balcony overlooking the mountains. There’s also a decent-sized secure lock up for bikes/snowboards etc. Breakfast was lovely and consisted of fresh croissants and bread everyday, plus cereal,... More

Just back from fab 6 days B&B. Good room, good food and really helpful. I was in Chatel for mountain biking and it was a great help to get some local knowledge of lifts, routes, weather etc. Many thanks to Paul & Helen for a great stay and making me feel really welcome :)
