My husband and I and our two boys (9 and 11) were in Chalet Cascades 17th-24th February. We chose valley facing rooms on the third floor, which were fab- what a beautiful view- bigger than most we've had on skiing holidays, seemed newly refurbed, and even though we were next to the lift, very quiet. Even the very noisy family who played loud games in the 3rd floor lounge (which was a great place to chill) didn't disturb us! Really warm hotel, hot water at all times, ski shop next door, bus stop to 1850 just outside entrance, access to escalator to 1650 slopes opposite, nearby bars and restaurants, convenient Spar shop for packed luch essentials .....
My husband would have liked more pegs in the boot room, but this is a very minor point. The boot room itself was aired and warm, allowing us dry boots in the morning. The food and wine was great- kids high tea good standard, and the chef very accomodating with my picky youngest son.
However the thing that crowned the holiday was the fantastic team who worked there- Clem, as manager, didn't miss a trick, and kept an eye on everything without ever being intrusive. There was a very friendly feel to the week, where the staff greeted you every night in the dining room, chef announced his menu, and set the scene for a lovely meal.
Dan and James met us off the bus, carried our bags, settled us in, made us so welcome, felt like we had known them forever- then carried our bags back out again a week later as my husband's ski injury had incapacitated him! Would highly recommend this chalet, and the team were just fantastic- the best ever. We will definitely be back.
