“Gets better each time...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Just returned from Chalet Rustique and another fabulous holiday. This is the third time we have visited and it really does get better each year. As all reviewers note, the food is simply exceptional and plays such a major part of your stay.

Paolo is the perfect host, extremely knowledgeable about the local area and always on hand to help, offer advise etc.

Can't wait to return next year!!

Spent a week at Chalet Rustique and felt very welcomed from the start. The Chalet has a very friendly atmosphere and nothing is too much trouble for its hosts and hostess. It is comfortable, clean and most importantly the food is sublime!!
Though the chalet is a 6-8min drive from the slopes Paolo was very happy to drive us to and fro without any trouble.
I would recommend this Chalet to anyone and everyone for the perfect après-ski experience.

Room Tip: All en-suite. One twin room and the rest doubles.

Fabulous chalet - couldn't have been better. Spacious, 5* decor and comfort. Paulo and his chalet hosts were very welcoming, friendly and accommodating to the whole group - nothing was ever any trouble. The ski area was fantastic with private mini bus services provided by Paulo taking us to and from all the ski areas. I have stayed in a number of different chalets and this is by far the best that I have been in. The highlight as mentioned by other guests has to be the food which is of Michelin restaurant standard in the luxury of your own chalet. If your searching for a chalet look no further. Great holiday - thank you.

Room Tip: All rooms equally good.

Previous reviews have used all the words to describe the experience. From meeting Paolo at the Arrivals of Geneva, with his alternative, picturesque transfer and the warm welcome from Ian and Gill to meeting Paolo's wife, Lindsay and they're absolutely adorable children, Sophia and Lucca. We were not fully prepared for the Chalet Rustique experience and what an experience. We were made welcome with bubbly, fluffy towels and lovely quality bedding,immaculately clean rooms and vast quantities of lovely Cowshed toiletries. I Spent all week trying to find my 6ft tall wife in the huge comfy bed. Paolo becomes a friend within a day and is always at the end of a phone/text to pick us up wherever our skiing day ended. Never wanting a skiing day to end is now all in the past, now we have stayed with Paolo & Lindsay ...Paolo's food is amazing, simply amazing and without effort....simply unbelievable! Chatel has got to be the jewel in the crown as far as the Port de Soliel ski area is concerned. It is one of the most authentic French ski areas to holiday in.

Had a great week with family at Chalet Rustique. Paolo is an excellent host and ferried us back and forth from the airport and slopes and JIll and Ian looked after us well in the chalet . The chalet has large bedrooms , very comfy beds , spotless ensuites , fluffy towels and robes . The service and accomodation was excellent and faultless . However the highlight of the holiday is the food which as another reviewer has commented was like dining in a top restaurant every night. Paolo is a fabulous chef and we certainly looked forward to what was on the menu each night . Oh and by the way the skiing is good too! We will certainly be back !

Room Tip: All rooms good

Our second visit to Chalet Rustique, 5 years since our last & we were made to feel like we`ve never been away. Paulo`s fantastic food, the ambience, the attentiveness & helpfulness of Ian & Jill all added up to a fantastic experience, one we hope to repeat soon. Nothing was too much trouble & any & all food issues were catered for without any problems.Thanks guys for a fantastic week.

This is our 2nd visit to Chalet Rustique and again everything was perfect. Paolo was there to make us feel at home. Always on hand to drop us off at the slopes and pick us up in the afternoon, never too much trouble. The thing I really like is the evening meals, it’s like dining at a top London restaurant, great flavours and amazing wines to match. We will defiantly be coming back!
