I was part of a group on a photographic break with Nick Jenkins of Freespirit Images. Chris and Ness were the perfect hosts and nothing was ever too much trouble. Chris drove us everywhere and we visited valleys, waterfalls, lakes, high mountain passes and villages and he waited patiently while we looked for another wonderful view to photograph. The food...

We were very pleased that Nick selected us for his Spring workshop as a follow-up to the excellent workshops held last Autumn. The good weather gave us the chance to introduce some new locations and the participants were kind enough to share some magnificent images with us. More

A great place to stay, Chris and Vanessa made all the bookings for lift passes, ski lockers, lessons etc and this made a great package. You could agree a time to depart for the slopes in the mini bus to suit your own plans and the same applied on the return trip at the end of the days skiing. The... More

We're always delighted to welcome back returning clients - I can't think of a better vote of confidence. And with some of our regulars clocking up their 5th visit this season, we can be truly proud of the firm friendships we've built in our 7 years offering accommodation in the Alps. More

Chris and Vanessa are excellent hosts. We didn't want for anything. The chalet was gorgeous and the views were to match. They organised our ski gear, passes, lockers and transfers. All we had to do was ski and enjoy, both were done. I cannot recommend Manxski.com highly enough.

There's no substitute for experience; after seven years providing for chalet clients we like to think we know just what's required to ensure you enjoy your holiday to the full. Holiday time is precious so if we can smooth your way it gives us the satisfaction of a job well done. More

A great place to stay for skiing at 'Le Grand Massif'. The hosts are wonderful and provide excellent accommodation, food and local knowledge. They arranged everything e.g. airport transfers, ski hire, mini bus to the ski lifts, lift passes, ski gear lockers etc., which was fantastic. The evening meals were out of this world - superb food! The views from... More

Spent last summer and this winter with Chris & Vanessa at Chalet Plein Air and couldn't praise them enough. Family loved the Alps in summer and was a pleasant surprise to us all as how beautiful the locations was. Our hosts accommodation, food and hospitality was first class and the Chalet has the added benefit of a pool for summer... More

It's a real pleasure for us to welcome summer guests back in the winter and vice versa. Our location works so well for us in both seasons; only a 45 minute airport transfer in the winter, and centrally placed for trips to Chamonix, Annecy and all the mountain activity centres in the summer. More

Lovely holiday with very good hosts and a large spacious chalet. Great to have everything organised when you get there and Chris and Ness's local knowledge helps. Ski Lockers in village make life so much easier and gives the freedom to spend time in the village after skiing in normal footwear. We were looking for ski in-out but this is... More

Just back from a weeks stay with Chris and Ness, and cannot praise them enough. The food is on another level to that of other ski chalets I have previously visited, and nothing is too much trouble for them.

We're delighted you enjoyed your stay, particularly as this was your first time with us. The heated lockers at the telecabine come up for praise time & time again, particularly from guests who have in the past endured the discomfort of apres-ski in boots. Looking forward to seeing you again next year! More

Skiing with the clients has to be one of the perks of this job - this reviewer was lucky enough to enjoy one of the quieter weeks of the season and we're always keen for any chance to get out on the slopes. Since then there are more skiers around but a big selling point of the Grand Massif is... More
