Just returned from THE best skiing experience ever in the Portes du Soleil, courtesy of Cassie and Simon at Alpine Action Adventures.
The warmest welcome began with an airport pick up, a direct transfer to Chalet Bernadine and a check in that was interspersed with canapés and champagne. Loved it.
Our skis and boots were delivered directly to the chalet and ski passes arranged in advance...we had nothing to do but relax and anticipate our first day on the mountain.
We were chauffeured to and from the slopes each day, transported to and from the lift of our choice and had the luxury of sauna and hot tub (I had mine with Prosecco), on our return. The dining experience was fabulous from breakfast to afternoon tea, (not to mention that special day when we returned to find chicken wings and beer). Every evening there were four wonderful courses of scrumptious-ness! Cannot recommend Chalet Bernadine and Alpine Action Adventures enough.
Thank you Cassie &Simon for the best ski experience yet!
We stayed at chalet Bernadine at short notice for four nights just after New Year. Our hosts Simon and cassis couldn't have been more accommodating or friendly. The chalet was warm and comfy with a great hot tub outside. We were dropped off and picked up from the slopes at exactly the times we arranged with no hanging about waiting. Food was great and the wine flowed.
Where to start?!? Simon and Cassie are a wonderful couple who run a dreamy, warm and inviting chalet. It's close to all amenities such as the Carrefour, patisseries, bars etc, all within walking distance.
You'll be spoiled st meal times! It's all home cooked, healthy and is sure to please everyone's tastes and requirements.
There is also a hot tub and sauna which you can use any time. Nothing is more beatable than sitting in the hot tub while flakes of snow fall on your shoulders while staying perfectly warm - pure bliss!
Their hospitality is second to none. Be prepared to feel spoiled and relaxed.
This is my 2nd time staying here. I stayed with simon and cassie during summer time for a relaxing holiday and just recently, I am back from a ski holiday which was a breeze to organize, thanks to their help and guidance.
I am blown away by the hospitality. They helped me to arrange everything that I needed which took a lot of pressure away from me.
I'm already arranging a trip next year, I simple couldn't get enough of the place!!
Just back from a 5 day ski trip and from the minute we arrived until the moment we left Simon and Cassie were amazing, such great people and so helpful with everything from helping organise our ski rentals, bringing us to and collecting us from the slopes each day and bringing us into town to do some sightseeing. And the airport transfers made things so much easier too! The chalet is absolutely beautiful with amazing views and the sauna and hot tub were a perfect way to relax after a day skiing followed by the amazing food which couldn't be beaten a four course evening meal every night, always something different, delicious and all homemade. Breakfast was just as good with everything you could want or need to get you ready for your day! Cassie was also able to organise massages for myself and the others when we needed them after our day skiing, and then relaxing with a glass of bubbly by the fire with a blanket and a cheese board to finish the night off. Best holiday I've ever been on already trying to sort out when I can go back!
Returned for our third snowboarding holiday. Cassie and Simon are excellent hosts and make the chalet feel like a home from home! The food is fantastic starting with a great breakfast to set you up for a full day out on the mountain and then back for some home-made cake and tea prior to an excellent three course evening meal.
There is also an outdoor hot tub to sooth aching muscles.
Our group previously preferred ski to door chalets however Simon will drop you at either Les Gets, Morzine or Ardent and pick up from any also. This means that the end of the day is not always taken up with the same runs getting back to a ski to door chalet.
They also introduced us to the smaller resort of Roc d'Enfer which is not linked via lifts to the rest of the Port du Soleil area, however it is stunning and much quieter than other resorts.
Overall I cannot recommend this chalet enough and we will hopefully be going back next year.

Back now for a third time round first time for a winter ski hols break. Can't fault anything!!! Superb all round!!! Perfect hosts! Delicious three course meals and great brekkie. Can't wait to come back. Defno home away from home. Thanks Simon and Cassie.
Returned again. Such a relaxed and beautiful place in perfect settings. From fresh breakfasts through to cracking evening meals. Relax in the outdoor hot tub or grab a book and relax by the log burner. Pretty sure if you visit you'll return too. 10/10
