“Fantastic Hosts and great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We booked to stay here over Christmas with Le Ski, and knew that the chalet hosts, Dave & Megan had been providing excellent service year after year!
We were not disappointed, the food was excellent, the wine flowed all evening, and Dave & Megan even got us all singing Christmas carols before dinner on Christmas night .... Sing for your supper!!
The location was good, although the small climb from the chalet to the piste in the morning did seem like a mountain on its own some days, but if you were careful you could almost ski back to the terrace in the evening.
Our room was small but totally adequate, our windows were next to the stairs to the piste so we did have to have the curtains closed all the time both in the bedroom and the bathroom, but we did book the last room. The beds were comfortable and all you did was actually sleep, and wash in the bedrooms.
I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, although Le Ski could be more organised then they were with ski passes etc, but this is not the fault of the chalet hosts and should not be counted towards the chalet reviews.
ps - don't mention Peter Andre to Dave or he might cry .....

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony if possible

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Our main priorities when booking this holiday were; 1 large chalet. 2 ski in ski out 3 ski guiding so this appeared to be perfect. The chalet was very nice and certainly ski in ski out although despite the rooms being described as "spacious with lots of storage, they were in fact anything but. The whole chalet was also very hot and so sleeping was difficult. I suppose I'm writing a fairly critical review because it was sold to us as very upmarket and "a step up" from the chalethotel we had been considering so when Le Ski announced on our arrival that they would not be able to offer any guiding because of a problem with the ESF we felt really let down. There was obviously no way around this but what was very disappointing was the lack of organisation to overcome the problem, and also the lack of information within our own chalet. Eventually the company did provide a guide for 3 days in the week but as he could only accommodate 15 to cover the whole resort it was virtually impossible to join the group. We have now emailed Le Ski twice regarding this problem and so far have heard nothing, not even an apology!! Very surprising and disappointing!
