Ski Breezy - Chalet D'Ile
Ranked #1 of 30 Chamonix B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 22, 2012

Back from a few days on the snows of Chamonix. Snow and weather were great but the trip was made by the warmth and hospitality of Breezy and Al at the chalet. Welcomed us in and made it a real home away from the pistes... fabulous food (cakes are now banned while my waistline recovers), a chance to relax with a cup of tea after the skiing was done, good recommendations of where to ski, ski hire sorted painlessly and generally treated like old friends. No need to look any further when heading to the slopes of Chamonix.

Hi Duncan,
Will locate the name of that restaurant in Porto for your trip. Not forgotten and a reminder set in the diary for when we get down to the Pyrenees. Thank you so much for the review here on Trip Advisor. Great fun weekend with you all in the chalet. You never know it may even turn into an annual ski trip somewhere in the Alps.
All the best for the coming celebrations

Spent an amazing week with Breezy and Al in mid March 2012 and would recommend it to anyone. Despite having spent our 1st week in Chamonix over New Year we decided to return but this time instead of a regular hotel trip we thought we would book into a catered chalet. Having read the other Ski Breezy reviews it was an easy choice to make and one we are very glad we did. Located just outside the centre but within easy walk it's a perfect balance of a quiet place to spend your time but easy access to all of the action if you want it. Bus stop at Chamonix Sud is max 10 mins walk away (in ski boots!!) but even better to walk the 2 mins to the train stop. You really feel welcome and at home at Ski Breezy. Fresh, inventive and wholesome food is served every morning and night and the free flowing wine and fantastic afternoon cake never misses. Perhaps what we found best about this place is the hosts, generously sharing their home with you and perhaps even more valuable sharing their knowledge of the area. From booking tables at the best places to eat both in town and on the piste that you would often not have found yourselves, or advising on the best place to ride each day they really made our trip extra special for us. The advice on where to ride was especially key as it was a hot mid March when we visited and despite this we had a week of amazing boarding that wouldn't have been half as good without these top tips. Big thanks to Breezy and Al for making this one of our most memorable mountain trips - see you next time.

Room Tip: This is a shared Chalet - if you don't occupy it all take some ear plugs so other guests getting...

Hi James and Fiona,
Delighted that you chose to stay with us in Chamonix. Very much enjoyed your company and humour. Been thinking about all the applications for "go gadget hands" and evolution.
I think our paths will definitely cross again, so if in Chamonix, give us a call for beer/wine/food/fun.

Breezy and Al are excellent hosts. The food was great, the company was great and the advice about everything "ski and Chamonix" was perfect. Breezy knows what you need before you even know yourself. I definitely look forward to another stay sometime in the near future!!

Hi Jean
Glad you had a good break and enjoyed the chalet. Hope you had a speedy recovery from whatever ailed you on the last couple of days. Extra pleased that you made it out for a Chambre Neuf experience. Get on that table and dance like a goodun!
Hope to see you again

A great place to stay. I only booked a few hours before arriving, and was immediately made welcome. Great evening meals, much better than I could ever cook, hearty breakfasts to keep you going through the day, and excellent cakes to come back to in the evening after a hard day of skiing and après skiing!
Chalet is clean and spacious even in the sharing room, with very comfortable beds. And parking, which isn't always easy to find in Chamonix. Also bus stop and railway station are both very close, and a decent bakery around the corner for chalet staff day off. And if it's all gone terribly wrong, the hospital is almost next door!
Many thanks Breezy and Al.
À la prochaine!

Room Tip: Suitable for singles. Very rare in chalet accommodation.

You are (apart from your brother) a one off. Never before have we received a call from someone at the airport wanting accommodation. Pleased we could fit you in. Thoroughly enjoyed the company and the banter. Sorry we won't see you again this season but let us know when you are back in town and shall do beer. Thank you for the review!!!

We had a fantastic 4 day break in Chamonix. Breezy and Al are wonderful hosts who go the extra mile, creating a relaxing and friendly environment for their guests. Breezy really knows her stuff when it comes to the slopes and was absolutely spot on with everything she recommended.The atmosphere in the chalet is extremely welcoming and the food is amazing.

Glad to see Ski Breezy at #1. This place is amazing. My girlfriend and I stayed for 2 nights. When I hadn't had enough, I asked to stay an extra night and Breezy and Al accommodated. The chalet itself is ultra-clean and spacious. It's not more than a 5 minute walk (in ski boots, even) to the bus stop for most mountains and a short walk into the center of town.
What separates this place from the others, of course, is Breezy and her husband, Al. Her cooking was that of a 5 star restaurant and between the two of them, I'm sure they know everything there is to know about the skiing in Chamonix. Every morning, breakfast was on the table and Breezy had the day's conditions at hand along with recommendations and directions.
The two of them have such an easy manner and a hospitable nature, it was more like staying at a friend's house for a long weekend.
If that wasn't enough, Breezy coordinated with Alex from Chamonix Ski to show up at the chalet upon our arrival with all the equipment we'd need to rent for the week. He also went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience and his service was outstanding along with his rates.
All in all, we had an incredible experience in Chamonix due in large part to Breezy, Al and Alex.

Thank you so much to Breezy and Al for making us feel completely at home! The food was absolutely wonderful! Breezy, your advice on where to ski and eat out at lunch was spot on and resulted in each day being top quality! You were both made to chalet host and I will definitely be back. Might even try for Easter so look forward to seeing you soon.
