5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

Thankyou so much Breezy and Alun for looking after us all so well! The chalet is clean, comfortable and really made to feel like home. The food was fantastic, especially the lovely homemade cake every day and we were all made to feel like one of the family. They are also very helpful with the latest snow and weather reports and advice on best places to ski. I'd go back like a shot! Pippa Surgey

Hi Pippa,
It was delightful having you in the chalet for the week while on the medical course. It was great that you managed to team up with the Oz couple for the last day of skiing. Hope you got back safely and enjoyed the night in London before trundling back south. Would love to see you again in Chamonix and next time don't bother with the course, just ski!

another great visit, wonderful food, plentiful wine, Breezy & Al provide excellent advice as to what's good to ski vs not. As it was early in the season (3rd week December) other guests were drifting in & out, but the easy going ambiance continued thru the week

many thanks as ever

Hi Peter,
Always nice to see familiar faces. Thank you for posting another review and above all thank you for coming back. You will be pleased to know that the snow conditions have got better since Dec, but then you probably don't want to hear that.
Say Hi to Toby when you see him at the caving club from us and hope you subsequent ski trips find you wallowing in the white fluffy stuff.

I had a fantastic week staying in Chalet D'Ile with Ski Breezy. Breezy and Al were very warm and welcoming and made our week really special. Many of us in the Chalet were on a course in Chamonix and Breezy/Al were very accommodating with us being in/out all week.
The food was homely and delicious. I particulary enjoyed the slow-cooked lamb shank!

The chalet is walking distance from town (fine in the evenings but feels quite far with skis). There are various buses that run past however, as Breezy suggested to us, I would hire a car next time. This would mean the various ski areas would be more easily accessible.

I would definitely recommend this chalet to anyone and had a brilliant week. Thanks Breezy and Al!

Hi Caz
Thanks for the review and also the great tips for people staying in Chamonix. Very pleased to have met you and sorry that we did not get to ski with you at all. You had such a packed week anyway we would not have had the chance.
If you ever find yourself in the valley in the winter again look us up for a drink at least, and all the best for the big day in Val D'Isere. We shall be raising a glass to you.

Had such a brilliant week in Chamonix, Al and Breezy make you feel so at home in this friendly and relaxed chalet. Extremely helpful and gave us everything we needed to know from postbox locations to the day-to-day snow reports and skiing recommendations. Delicious meals and good company. I would wholeheartedly recommend it and would definitely stay again.

I am guessing that you needed a holiday after your fairly full on week in Chamonix. The gloves have been stowed away in the "spares box" for guests who loose or forget theirs. If you are in Cham again and want to see them they will still be here.
Thank you for taking the time to post a review and thank you for the feedback. We had a great week that flew by too. Some very random conversations around the table.

Chalet D'lle is the ONLY place to stay in Chamonix so look no further and book today to avoid disappointment! Al and Breezy are delightful hosts, the food not only scrumptious but plentiful too and the chalet itself very cosy and only a short walk into town, or brief minibus ride if you're feeling a tad lazy. Also a fresh cake awaits your return from the slopes each day which is always a pleasant surprise and the three-course evening meal certainly won't disappoint either. Al and Breezy offer an abundance of local knowledge too which is especially handy if you're new to the area and need a little pointing in the right direction e.g. catching the right bus, where best to ski etc.

So..Chalet D'lle in a nutshell:
Excellent hosts, excellent food
and an extremely friendly place to stay. 6 stars across the board!

Hi Tom,
It was definitely a fun, and very funny week; glad you also enjoyed it. It is great in teh chalet when there are loads of individuals who all just get on and make the most of the week. Thanks for the humour, the chat and also the review here. Let us know if you are ever about in the winter in Cham again.

Hi Hannah
Thank you for the review here on Tripadvisor. Pleased that you enjoyed Chamonix and the experience with lift systems. It was great fun hosting the folk on Alison's course and finding out about your adventures in the evenings. Hope you get much more touring fror the rest of the winter season in Norway and hope to see you again in Cham at some stage.

Incredibly warm hospitality above and beyond the call. Breezy and Alun are a phenomenally well organised "team" The chalet has a wonderfully relaxed, friendly atmosphere which makes you feel so very welcome from the start to finish of your stay. Delicious meals ( so forget the diet )- superb afternoon cake .
As keen off-piste skiers with vast local knowledge Breezy and Alun go out of their way to offer invaluable advice on where to ski / where to find the best snow /route planning / transport options / weather forecasts as well as where to find the best bars in town ! No question seems to phase them -very impressive !
Ski Breezy is one of the best chalet experiences to be found in the Alps and I can wholeheartedly recommend it - I will definitely be going back on my next visit to Chamonix !
