In short - the best skiing accommodation over the past 10 years. Location: In Val d'Isere, which is next to a glacier, so skiing is almost guaranteed. Close to ski lifts, definitely ski-out; not always ski-in, as only one particular slope goes past the hotel. 10 minutes walk to town centre, and good own shuttle service with MB Viano adapted...

A beautiful hotel with lovely bar area, kids area and very nice rooms. The staff are mostly very nice and friendly. Great location. What was a huge dissapointment (which our whole group agreed on) was the poor quality of the food. It was honestly not food I would usually spend €5 on let alone the €40something prices they charge. I...

We had a 5 day stay in easter 2016. Excellent location. Excellent service and facilities. Rooms and restaurants (including the Michelin stared La Table de L'ours) were however not living up its piers. Ferme de Marie in Megeve will stay my favourite.

It is a one star Michelin, if I am not mistaken. Sure the price, setting, service match up to it. It charges top $ (or euro, if you prefer) They restricted us to order the same tasting menu (for all 10 people), else we can order a la crate. For the food, it had good plating (looks good), but they...
