“A wonderful week in Chamonix”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Back from a great end of season week in the Ski Breezy Chalet. I've had many Chalet based Ski trips & this place far exceeds them all.
Breezy & Al were the perfect hosts, bending over backwards to make my stay a memorable one. They went to great pains to create a warm & relaxed atmosphere with great home cooked food & plentiful wine... If that weren't enough they are also very willing to share their hard earned local knowledge on where best to Ski, Drink, Eat, catch the bus & generally have a good time.

Thanks for everything guys, I'll be back..!

Sam,
Thank you for reviewing Ski Breezy here on Trip Advisor. What great snow we had; shame we could not see it all the time. Not the best for photos. It will definitely go down as one of the best weeks of the season, and to share it with a fellow telemarker too.
Catch you for a beer in Derbyshire after you get back from Majorca.
Thanks again and see you soon.

We stayed here 2 years ago and had a great time again- it was a hoot. Al and Breezy couldn't have done anything more to ensure that our stay was as much fun as it was last time. They are both a fountain of knowledge when it comes to the skiing and Chamonix generally, the cooking is amazing and they even arranged for it to snow every night for us. Nothing is too much trouble for them- Al even mended our hire car after a small indiscretion.
Hats off to them and we hope to be back again next year with all the kids- look out!

James,
You have done a sterling job on the video footage. Thanks so much for the review. I know that Gladiator and Contender will remember the week for years to come too. Thanks again for all the laughs and a great week.
Looking forward to catching you and Kate for beer in Yorkshire!!!

We were the first Dutch guests at Breezy and had a fantastic time! Breezy and Al gave us a terriffic and warm welcome, informed us very well about the ski areas, made nice lunch bookings @ piste for us, their cooking is delicious and every day Breezy surprised us with again a fresh cake on the table. Chamonix is a very nice and cosy small city, beautiful ski pistes and nice people. Breezy is very near to the center, just a little walk of aprox 10 minutes. We would reccommend anybody to go there for a wonderful stay!

Hi Barbara,
Thank you all for staying with us, thoroughly enjoyed your company and humour. The jump park at Grand Montets is just not the same without you. We did however see a male version and caught it on camera. We shall send it over for your scrutiny.
Thank you for the review and hope to see you all again.

Just back from a long weekend staying in Ski Breezy's chalet. Our hosts Al and Breezy were warm and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. They cooked us delicious meals every evening and the afternoon tea and cake was definitely a highlight - the cakes were amazing!!

I have stayed in many chalets and catered accommodation and this is definitely up there with the best of them. Thank you for making the weekend such an enjoyable weekend.

Best wishes and enjoy your summer in the Pyrenees!

Hi Catherine,
Thank you so much for the review here on Trip Advisor and very pleased you enjoyed the weekend. Great bunch of folk and lots of fun, could not have asked for better weather for the Saturday Chicken picnic up the mountain.
Happy sailing!

My wife, me and daughter (15) had a great week with Breezy and Al, 18-25 Mar 2012. Even before our arrival, Breezy had booked a variety of excursions for my wife (who doesn't ski) that included huskies, snow shoeing, spa etc. All of our ski equipment was sorted and we were ready to go from the off. Great hospitality, fantastic food and top quality advice on where to go on the slopes and around Chamonix. Can't thank Breezy enough for making our stay so special and will definitely be looking to return next season.

Hi Rob,
Delighted that you enjoyed the week and all the various activities. It was great having the three of you in the chalet and we are both thrilled that Jess took to the snowboarding so well. You may have to consider a lesson on skis, so that you can keep up next year.
It would be great to have you back, and than you for the review here on Trip Advisor.

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.
