“True luxury experience in fantastic setting”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Arriving at Chalet Auriane is an experience in itself. You park in a nondescript garage, take a private funicular up a 1 in 2 slope to the front door, and enter a world inside of super luxury and super cool design. Hugo and Dawn take care of everything and in no time you're settled on a sofa in front of log fire, drink in hand and gazing through massive plate glass windows across the valley. Wonderful!

When you're ready to ski the same funicular takes you a little further up slope to the home stretch of piste into La Tzoumaz's Savoleyres cable car station. A genuine ski-in ski-out arrangement in keeping with the top end attention to detail and to making things easy which you will find through your whole stay at the chalet, whether it's accomplished chef Hugo tailoring menus to your requirements, the bedroom layouts with masses of storage or the sauna and hot tub being readied for whenever you want them.

On the skiing front you have an abundance of choice from gentler, pretty and less busy slopes on the La Tzoumaz side of the mountain to the full range of the Verbier system over the other side. An average skier like me can easily reach Atelas (half way up the Verbier slopes) within 40 minutes of leaving Chalet Auriane's front door.

I really can't recommend this chalet enough, it's a brilliant fusion of convenience, luxury and style in an unbeatable spot. Easily the best skiing experience ever for me.

“True Ski in Ski Out”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Usually when a residence is described as ski in -ski out it means that you still have to walk a few hundred yards, stumbling and sweating in ski boots carrying all the children's paraphernalia like a Sherpa. Not in Chalet Auriane! The chalet's front door is on the piste so there is zero walking. The accommodation is in the 5* category as expected but with an additional personal touch of (live out) Hugo and Dawn who could not have been more welcoming, discreet and personable in addressing our requests. The food is good as is the wine selection. The village of La Tzumas is on the quiet side - the antidote to the hustle bustle of Verbier but the chalet is so comfortable and well equipped - internet, cable TV including BBC etc that I was reluctant to leave anyway.
Perfect for 2 families with children looking for a civilised ski week. My only regret is that we didn't sledge - it appears popular amongst the Swiss sledge aficionados. May be next time!

“BEST KEPT SECRET!”

I've been really lucky to stay at Chalet Auriane several times both with my family (its child friendly) and on adult only breaks and have never been disappointed. The chalet is extremely well appointed and benefits from being ski in and ski out. The owners have put a huge amount of effort into this extremely comfortable and quirky chalet - check out the bed in the master bedroom! The living area is open plan with a huge fire and great lounging sofas and snugly fur throws. The bedrooms all have amazing views and are so comfortable with something really rare in a ski chalet - a huge amount of wardrobe/cupboard space! Being a technophobe I found the TV/movie system was so easy to operate with the biggest choice of music and movies! There is a sauna and outdoor jacuzzi with amazing views where I could be found most evenings with a glass of fizz. The meals are really tasty as was the wine and nothing is too much trouble for Dawn and Hugo the staff! The skiing in La Tzoumaz is as challenging as you want it to be and if you want a break from the peaceful and uncrowded slopes there then Verbier is a quick ski away. A place I wouldn't hesitate to visit again!
