“Outstanding in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We have just spent the most amazing week at Le Chamois in Reberty 2000 over Christmas. We were 18 family members aged 3-83 and everyone had a fantastic time. The chalet is perfect: comfortable, tasteful, fun for kids (jacuzzi, sauna and kids room with dvd and wii) with charming staff to make you feel completely relaxed, welcome and at home. The food was delicious and Tom, our chef, an integral part of the fun, along with George and Jess who looked after us so well. The beds were comfortable and the seating area worked very well. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and were always cheerful. Location is brilliant, right next to ski school/private lesson meeting point on the piste, and also a lovely place to have a chocolat or vin chaud (on piste next to chalet) . It was not noisy, despite being next to La Ferme restaurant/ bar. Skiing area is vast and enough for everyone of all levels. We enjoyed the balcony looking over the slopes and kids ski school. We'll definitely be back as this one is hard to better! Thank you to everyone there.

being a true ski in ski out property (well almost so), its hard to beat. The location is ab fab, the chalet hosts are wonderful and the chalet is really great too. Rooms are smallish, but on a ski holiday, bearable. All have their own onsuite too. Reberty is a quiet village so if you are looking for happening night life, suggest look to go to a bigger village. Overall, a really great little chalet.

18 of us stayed over Christmas and were very well looked after. The location of the chalet on the slopes is perfect, in particular for the many beginners and children in the party. Although we were a big party the chalet seemed to house us quite comfortably. The bedrooms are typically French (small) but the living accommodation was more than adequate. The young team of three were very attentive and enthusiastic and the chef, Matt, excellent. Great value for money.

Chalet was good and so was the food. Location was very handy for the slopes and okay for après ski.

However, the downside was that shortly before our trip, the owners had, I think reduced the price, and taken a booking from 6 young snowboarders, all young blokes!

They weren't as bad as they could have been but the language was a bit 'choice' at times and they were prone to coming back in the early hours the worse for wear.

I know that unless they whole chalet is taken there is always a risk of this happening, but it would make me wary of booking here again.

We've just signed up for a second time, bringing the whole family with us to La Chamois for a glorious winter vacation. Our experience last year was really wonderful: the chalet was roomy and comfortable (and the kids were not underfoot all the time), it was a great ski-in/ski-out location and the Powder N Shine team pampered us outrageously with great food and wine while making sure unobtrusively that all systems were working properly. We really had a great time, which is why we're coming back.

Having stayed here with a large group last February, we were incredibly impressed with many aspects of our stay. We filled the whole chalet but never felt cramped, the location was superb, chalet staff second to none and it really was a luxury skiing holiday! Travelling with children was hassle free for once as the childcare was fantastic, staff were social and informative, the chef did a wonderful job feeding us and the children to a very high standard. The hot tub was a huge bonus as was the playroom downstairs and heated bootroom. Best thing about the holiday? Feeling secure about your kiddies having fun if they're not skiing with you and the personal touch to make the holiday taylor made to your requirements - thanks to Francesca's organising! Jess and Ben were outstanding and Matt kept the kitchen in great order! So good in fact that we're coming again next February!!

Just returned after a weeks stay for my partners 40th birthday.
There were between 14 and 18 of us, dependent upon the day of the week, and this chalet was a real find.
Read all the reviews on trip advisor before leaving and, even with that, we thought the chalet exceeded expectations.
Staff, Jess Matt and Ben were soooo nice. Didn't feel like they were intruding at all, very accommodating even when we had two friends over from Switzerland with their Great Dane for the night !
Matt did an amazing menu, was like eating at a restaurant every night, everyone came back half a stone heavier.....
Location was just what we wanted, right on the piste and the village catered for everyone in the group. Advanced skiers and snow boarders combined with a few girls that couldn't ski for various reasons and just 'did lunch'...
The only very slight downside was that the bedrooms were quite small but, with the amount of time you spend in them, it was a VERY small point in an otherwise excellent chalet that I would highly recommend to anyone.
We had 18 adults coming from three continents, a fantastic way to catch up with friends.....

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor and ground floor are quieter, but not much, depends on the group and what tim...
