What a superb 3 night mini-ski-break. These guys really know how to look after their guests, you can't help but instantly warm to the chalet, the outstanding food (we'll talk about this more) and the charming team, really lovely people with real passion for what they do. It reminded me of the atmosphere you get in a local pub where everyone knows each other, even if they've only just met. Who'd of thought, four boisterous designers, eight boarding jocks and a nine piece choir from Wimbledon.
Ok so the chalet's not in the centre of Morzine but who cares, dinner will take you from the lounge with cheeky appetisers (loved the beetroot and mint humous) to the long table for 3 stella courses (have to mention the parmesan ice cream) and back to the log fire for cheese and more wine. Outside of the complementary wine and good wine at that, is a well stocked honesty bar which would stand up to any bar in town, the fact is unless you're 21 you'll just want to enjoy the chalet, the flowing booze and other guests chat. Alternatively you can pull some shapes and belt out an 80's classic on the Wii. Apparently the Dutch love it.
Not wanting this to turn into one of those 'too long to read reviews' I have to mention the cake OMG. So we only sampled a few but the Carrot and Vicky Sponge were killer! The Carrot did edge it (Viks 1 Kat 0) we even got the recipe to bring home, how nice.
I've not even mentioned the skiing which was fantastic after 20 years out, neither have I talked about the inclusive airport transfers, the lifts to the lifts whenever it suits you, the HOT, hot tub and sauna and the very efficient ski hire service that comes to the chalet. You WILL have an amazing chalet experience at AliKats, just book it, you won't be disappointed.

Thank you for taking the time to review our chalet - it's really appreciated! Kat is disappointed that the Vicky Sponge cake did not win the day and is going to practice extra hard over the summer to win you over!!!
Have a great 2013 and see you next year
Al & Kat
