“Hilarious week with Al and Breezy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

We were so looking forward to our 4th visit to this chalet of laughter and sore skiing legs and were not disappointed.
As usual Al and Breezy could not have done more to make us happy.
We now face a week of weaning ourselves off the sumptuous 3 course dinners and months of dieting to get back to normal! Al and Breezy make the most amazing hosts and, with their input, decision making is a doddle, especially when it comes to ski hire, pistes, bars, restaurants, transport, number of layers to wear etc.
Having such helpful and friendly hosts made such a huge different to our holiday that we even decided to let them win at some of the after dinner games.
From the spotless bedrooms to the homely comforts and relaxed atmosphere, this Chalet is highly recommended by us and we are already looking forward to next year's antics there.

Dear James, thank you so much for letting us win occasionally at the games. Silly me, we thought that we were doing so well at the time. We never even realised that our performance was being elevated by your feigned stupidity and ineptitude. Now paranoid that all our guests treat us in the same manner. Do you think that counselling is appropriate? Competition aside, thank you for the review here. It is always a great week when you are about, no matter what the snow conditions are like. I guess we shall see you in Yorkshire when we can return some of the shower caps. Keep up the Magic!!!

Our 2nd long weekend at Ski Breezy and we're already planning a 3rd. Breezy and Al were most welcoming, greeted us with a much needed cup of tea as soon as we arrived and offered plenty of advice on where to ski that afternoon, pick up a sandwich from to take up the hill etc. Having been led astray by apres ski we made it back (just in time!) for dinner and enjoyed a hearty 3-course meal with plenty of seconds, non-stop flowing wine and extremely good company. This was the norm for the rest of our stay - great service & advice (nothing was too much trouble), wonderful food, plenty of laughs, a memorable game of Articulate and even a spot of arts and crafts. The chalet is warm and comfortable, we stayed in the Quad room which was perfect for 4 of us with lots of space and cupboards/shelves/hooks for all our gear. The heated boot warmers in the garage were a bonus. A little genie (or maybe it was Al) even fixed the zipper pull on my jacket after I'd casually mentioned that it had snapped off that day. It was great to have 4 days away being taken care of so well especially when the most difficult decision we had to make was what to have for breakfast the following morning.

Now then Eadaoin, huge thank you for the lovely words. Indeed the evening session on "How to make a fake sink with flour, water, newspaper and a couple of ballons?" was far better than any board game we have ever encountered. In fact, it may even be marketable even though the market must be exceptionally small. Thanks also for all teh laughs and the surprise pressy in the post. I do believe that we shall see you again before the end of the season. Great to have another catch up and a cheeky glass of wine or six.
Huge hugs
Breezy & Al

3rd time and still as good as ever! It really is no surprise that we keep returning to Breezy and Al for our ski holidays - the hospitality is great, the food first class and the skiing is awesome. All you could ever want from a ski holiday. Thanks again. Rob

Breezy and Al, once again an unbeatable short stay with you last week. Chamonix was a little quiet, but in fact it meant no queue's or crowds and the blue-sky skiing in warm sunshine was fab! Thankyou as always for your advice, help with bookings, pointers about where the best snow would be, and of course unbeatable hospitality and gut-busting food!
I would whole-heartedly recommend Skibreezy to anyone planning a quality trip to Chamonix, but you'd better act fast; quality places like this get booked well in advance!
I'll be back......

Room Tip: Ask Breezy - there's twin, double, quad......

We were a group of 10 that stayed at Ski Breezy for a week of skiing in the beginning of March. The first impression was great. Al and Breezy takes service and hospitality to a new level and makes everything really easy for their guests.

When we arrived it was organized ski-fit in the chalet so that we didn’t have to spend time on that the morning after. The skiing skills in the group were really various – some really good and a couple of us had not been skiing for 7 and 15 years(!). But thanks to Al and Breezy’s advices it was really easy to find out where to go to find something for everyone in the group. It was also really helpful that they knew where we could find the best conditions from day to day. They also helped us to book restaurants for lunch.

Back “home” in the chalet we were treated with wonderful 3-course menus every night. It was good variation of menus and everything was really tasty! Almost every night there was comments around the table like “This is the best meal I’ve ever had” etc.

The chalet has a good location not very far from the city center of Chamonix. It has got a cozy atmosphere and is tidy and clean. But the best about the chalet is of course the hosts! I have never met such warm, welcoming and helpful hosts! Thanks to Breezy and Al we could use all our time on skiing and after-skiing without having to deal with all the practical things you normally have to deal with on a such trip.

If you want maximum out of your stay in Chamonix, you should definitely go for a stay at Ski-Breezy!

Hi Linda, Thank you for a great week in the chalet and for the glowing report here on Trip Advisor. Chambre Neuf will not be the same without you guys. Sorry you had to cut your stay short and hope the knee is fully recovered. Martha has already been on to us and put in some pencil dates for next season so hope to see you then.
Hugs,
Breezy & Al

Thanks Breezy and Al...
The other reviews provide all the info. We enjoyed being in a quieter part of Chamonix although it's only a 10 minute walk into town and we quite enjoyed buzzing around on the local free buses for a week to get to the various ski areas. We had a magical view of the Bossons glacier and Aiguille du Midi from our bedroom. Al and Breezy create a lovely relaxed atmosphere in the chalet and the food was lovely. There was no need to do any internet research because it was always quicker to ask them what to do! Thanks for your company and making us feel so at home. We'll see you soon.. maybe in the Pyrénées....

Hi Steve and Jane, Twas a fun week with you all and glad the course was a success with some good tours as well as improving the old technique. Had a ski with Anne the other day so you guys of course cropped up in conversation, it's a small world! As you I mentioned if you are passing by the Pyrenees again you know where we are. Hope going back to work not too full on. I am sure our paths will cross again before too long. Safe and happy adventures wherever they may be. A bientot Breezy

This was my fourth trip to Chamonix and I doubt I'll be using any other accommodation in the future! The chalet was great and very well organised for skiing, but what really made it was Breezy and Al.

With 14 years of skiing in the valley, Breezy and Al could give pretty amazing and accurate suggestions of where to go in order to meet your skiing goals. I honestly cannot think of a nicer couple and it was great to hear of their daily ski adventures - they ski almost every day - as well as their previous trips around the world. From the moment I set foot inside the chalet, Breezy made me feel at home with a cup of coffee and slice of cake; this was a continuing trend!

Chamonix can be hassle due to the need to use buses, but the Chalet is five minute walk from Cham Sud and less to the nearest bus stop for Le Tour, Argentiere and Les Houches. The town centre is an easy walk too and both Breezy and Al seem to know the bus timetables very well indeed...

The food was also great, with plenty of variety through the week and in sufficient quantity to keep a ski tourer happy. It was also appreciated when Breezy worked out breakfast times to suit all the different parties staying in the chalet - this is presumably a hassle for Breezy and Al, but was extremely useful for us and is a good demonstration of their focus on their guests.

All in, from my perspective a perfect ski chalet, hosted by two really super and friendly people.

Thanks Al and Breezy!

Hi Calum, We really loved the week with you guys staying with us and glad it all went well in the chalet and on the course too. You were lucky with the good snow and some sun as well. Thanks for your great company in the chalet too, dinners were good fun. I hope Glenda was not too exhausted on your return but I think both her and the kids would have been very pleased to have you home again. Hope one day you will be able to make it over for a family ski trip in Chamonix. May well see you if passing your neck of the woods on way to Edi and pop in for a cuppa. Hope you manage a cheeky few skis up north before the season is over. Lovely to meet you Calum until the next time, wherever that may be. Cheers for now Breezy
