We both had a spare few days so last week decided to book a cheeky 4 days skiing.
As soon as we got to chalet daisy we realised we were onto a winner. No expense has been spared with kitting out the place to the standards befitting this beautiful chalet. The chalet itself is everything it looks like in the pictures, the entire building is clad in beautiful local timber giving it that really traditional mountain chalet feel, soo cosy after a long days skiing. Yet as its only 5 years old, underneath the timber shell is an ultra insulated and modern building, no cold nights and piddly showers here - super insulated walls and long high power body jet showers are to be enjoyed every evening :)
The chalet was completely renovated in 2012 - Everything inside feels brand new and everything inside feels expensive. From stretching out in front of the roaring open fire in ultra comfy reclining leather sofas, to curling up in the crisp cotton sheets after a molton brown shower. Chalet daisy is pure luxury.
And then there is the service. Dave and Alisma were quite honestly the most attentive hosts we have ever stayed with. Chalet daisy is obviously their 'baby', these aren't chalet hands serving up slop and doing nothing but planning their afternoon on the slopes. These guys are trying so hard to make a dream chalet holiday a reality, and in doing so create their own successful business and it really shows. What Alisma manages to create in the kitchen every day, as well as running the chalet is just staggering. Be prepared for amazing cooked breakie, fresh baked cakes everyday on your return from the slopes followed by a 3 course meal befitting any resteraunt I've ever been to. And all with the sweetest smile on her face!
My only slight reservation before booking was that we couldnt ski to our door, Dave has that covered though, he's on hand to drop and collect you everyday. we'd be ready to go in the morning and he would stop what he was doing to take us the 5-10 mins to the slope. When we'd finished at the end of the day we would text him for collection and he'd be there before we'd finished our pints. Nothing is too much trouble for dave, hes a real sweetie.
All this and so many other little details (nice....really nice champagne on arrival, brand new hot tub under the stars to name a few) that all add up to the above to make chalet daisy by far and away the best ski retreat in its (exceptionally good value) price bracket we have ever been to.
As soon as we got home we booked it again for 6 weeks time!! Just cant wait to go back !
