Great food, with vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes looking equally appetising. And a superb and friendly guide to lead us through the majestic scenery of the Alps, pacing us well . And very knowledgable about the wildlife and wildflowers, an added bonus....

A super chalet in a great location, just on the edge of the beautiful village of Samoens. We were welcomed warmly by the fabulous Nat and all her team; Gav, Connor and Lauren. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt thoroughly spoilt. There is so much to do apart from the skiing and boarding. Local snowshoeing was great fun...

This was our second visit to La Grand Ourse. It was great. Sam was fantastic with helping out with out booking, it was very flexible and we gradually added people to our party right up until the week before! Sam helps to arrange transfers to the airport, and these are paid for at the chalet. She was even incredibly helpful...
