We were a party of 16 staying in the main Chalet and the Petite Ourse. The Chalet has everything you need for a perfect stay and the laidback staff were very helpful and welcoming. Gav cooked lovely food and there was always another option available. The breakfast was very good and the afternoon cakes. The bedrooms were very comfortable and... More

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... More

The owner managed to fit us in for just a couple of nights in their chalet. Due to snow in Geneva - flights were delayed. So we didn't arrive until 11.30pm - Nat - manager of the chalet team gave us a warm welcome even at the late hour. Our rooms were warm and cosy. Gavin provided us with great... More

The food was superb (with a range of lovely varied dishes over the course of the week), the chalet... More

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... More

We had the pleasure of spending Christmas 2015 in the lovely Grande Ourse. There were seven of us altogether, including 17 & 15 year olds and my parents. Great welcome and fantastic customer service from Sam and her team, couldn't have asked for more. Great food, fab cakes, fantastic hot tub and view, happy smiling faces everyday! Only minutes to...

Lovely chalet with very friendly, helpful staff who work very hard to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Gavin, the chef, prepared excellent varied 3 course meals and yummy cake for your return from activities. Natalie and Dan worked hard too to respond to any requests and look after the guests.
