“What a wonderful holiday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

Our stay at Chalet Dahu was our first in a catered chalet - and certainly won't be our last, as long as it is with SkiDazzle. We stayed over Christmas 2011 with our family and our friends' family. The chalet was cosy and warm and the hosts, Kris and Alydia couldn't have been more welcoming. In fact they were delightful! The food was excellent as was the cleanliness. The bedrooms were small but more than adequate as were the bathrooms. There was plenty of room for storage both in the bedrooms and the bathrooms. The beds were comfortable and my husband and I slept better than ever before on a ski holiday (and we've had many). There was no problem with noise other than one night when the 2 year old in our party was fractious and no amount of soundproofing could have prevented that. The sitting room was comfortable and if I had one criticism it would be that the Christmas tree started losing it's needles very early on! The hot tub was wonderful and it was nice not to have to worry about providing towels or robes. Sallyann (of Skidazzle) even provided a keyboard and music so that we could play and sing carols on Christmas Eve - a really personal touch. The venue is excellent both for skiers and non- skiers such as me. Dan was also very helpful in his "handyman" guise. We had wanted to book for next Christmas but unfortunately someone got there first! I would highly recommend Chalet Dahu.

Room Tip: The rooms with balconies were more airy and had more light

My partner and I returned from our holiday at Chalet Dahu 29/01/12. Every aspect of our trip was perfect....the hosting couple Chris and Alydia could not have been more accommodating. Every meal cooked to perfection and hospitality excellent. We stayed the whole week so were lucky enough to join the rest of the chalet group for a hosting day in the mountains with Dan who made sure we saw the very best of the three valleys. The rooms were small, but cosy and warm (kind of what you would expect from a chalet) and clean. The hot tub and sauna were excellent for soothing the muscles after a full day on the slopes. The location of the chalet is excellent. Ski-in-ski-out made this holiday hassle free!
We would recommend choosing Chalet Dahu for anyone looking for a great holiday which is most certainly value for money. On the subject of noise, of the 7 nights we stayed, we were woken up only one night by noise, from our own group! we found La Tania a very peaceful location....

Great communication from Ski Dazzle and an efficient collection service was a good start to the stay at Chalet Dahu in La Tania. Our hosts were very polite and the food very good. However, the Chalet is certainly not of a good quality. The rooms are tiny, basic and the noise from everything else in the Chalet is overwhelming. Bathrooms are basic and one of our rooms was not en suite. Although the food was good the lack of extraction meant that the smell from the food stayed with you (and your clothes in the room) for a long time after you have enjoyed the meal.

We arrived late on the day the staff had a day off so we were warned that there would be nobody there. They did not tell us that there would be no towels, no welcome letter and NO heating on in the room!!!!

Chalet position is great with true ski in-ski out and the staff were very helpful. Overall I would say if you are looking for a basic chalet and good food it's fine, but manage your expectations and take some earplugs!!!!!!
