Reviewed January 30, 2014

This is our 5th season staying with Alpine Escape and this January we were lucky enough to stay in Chalet Sophie again however we really appreciated the wonderful improvements Jo and Neil have made to the upstairs, the open plan area works very well and is very social, the fireplace is stunning and it is great place to chill out and relax whist being able to chat with other guests and the Chef Martyn and host Clare, not forgetting to mention the stunning views. As always it was a slick operation from booking enquiry all the way through to departure.Nothing is too much trouble.The food was fantastic and of a consistently high standard with interesting menu choices which were not too heavy. Wines/Port/Processco & Digestifs were appreciated and compliment the whole experience, especially relaxing in the hot tub! The chalet was smart and very clean with everything well presented. The Alpine Escape team ensure that you have a really positive experience and are very approachable, knowledgable and willing to offer help and advice, thanks to all you once again and can't wait until the next visit!!!

Just spent a week in the company of Belle, Chris and Morgan at chalet Elangeni. Fantastic! Great food (even the breakfast on chef's day off). Bedrooms are on the small side but not much awake time spent in them. Lounge is a very sociable space and gives access to the patio dEck and hot tub, great after a day on the slopes, just needs a call button for more refreshments :) Would we go again? you bettcha! First time with Alpine Escapes and really impressed, a very personal service. Best wishes to team chalet and Jo & Neil for the rest of the season, well done 10/10!

I have just returned from a week of fine wines and dinning at Chalet Elangeni, thanks to Bell Chris and the amazing chef "Morgan". The staff and the owners of Alpine Escapes are outstanding,nothing is too much trouble. Relax after a day skiing in the hot tub, yes gowns and fluffy towels are provided or play table tennis, this chalet/company is a hit. Thanks again guys you are amazing.

We have just returned from a weeks stay at Chalet Sophie and what can I say !!
Well to start with it was the best skiing holiday we have ever had after 8yrs skiing in La Tania,and the reason being the fabulous Chalet.
Chalet Sophie was so comfortable and homely with just everything you could possibly want and more !
Our host Claire was lovely and friendly and was more than happy to please.The Chalet was always immaculate (except in the morn ,after the night before),sorry our fault Claire !!!!
Martyn ,our chef was fantastic,We have never eaten as well on any holiday .Every evening we dined like Kings and Queens,well done Martyn you truly are a gifted chef and we wish you all the best for your future.
We would also like to thank,Auben,Alex,Dave and Milda,who were always on hand to drive us up and down.
Jo and Neill you should both be so proud of the amazing company you have created ,it is a credit to you both.
And lastly just to thank Alexis ,Angus and Brian for being such lovely friends.You all made our holiday so special.

What an amazing week!! Having just returned from our stay in Chalet Elangeni in a party of four families (14) I can only say WoW, from the moment of arrival the team Bella, Morgan & Chris took care of our every need. the chalet is great with both a hot tub & sauna which was used a lot especially by the kids, with good use of space and right next to the piste & ski schools, doesn't really get much better!!!

The food was absolutely superb with Morgan's sheer passion for providing beautiful & tasteful dishes every night supplanted with a vivid description, Chris's wine pairing & Bella's interaction making our dinner's a great experience.

The team are a great credit to Jo & Neil who have selected a winning combination & you won't be disappointed should you choose to go, we even taught them our "bungalow song - remember my hands are high my knees are low & this is how I bungalow" it will be viral soon!!

All the best for the rest of the season The McLean's, Sharpe's, Wakefield's & Estop's

Room Tip: All the rooms are pretty much of a muchness with no real downsides

Just retuned from our fifth stay with Jo and Neil we were there for the first week of the season in
La Tania. We can not recommend alpine escape highly enough the chalets are great food is fantastic. This year we had Martin and Milda as our chalet hosts Martin was so accommodating his food was fantastic Milda was a great host. We had lovely cakes waiting for us every afternoon on returning from our days skiing. We stayed this time in chalet Joanna it is positioned with easy access to green and red runs to give you access to the La Tania gondola and the hot tub is just the job for those aches and pains .Jo and Neil run a really great ski chalet company nothing is to much trouble, they have things just right this makes it home from home.
thanks Fran Mark Josh Joe Ollie Karen Ian Jordan Poppy.

Room Tip: In chalet Joanna ask for the family room as it has bunk beds that fold away so for a couple it give...

Stayed at Chalet Elengani at the start of March and I cannot recommend the place highly enough. The chalet itself it lovely and very handy to the slopes and the town/ shops. The chalet hosts Sacha and Victoria couldn't do enough for us and offered great service without being intrusive. It was great coming in from a day on the slopes to a cuppa and a bit of cake, a half hour in the hot tub and coming out to a roaring fire and a glass of wine (the wine selection was very good all week). The highlight of the chalet service has to be the food....the chef Alex was amazing and every night the food was top notch. I also must mention that I found Jo to be great with arranging transfers, sorting lift passes etc etc. I am sure I will be returning in the future. The only thing to be aware of are the bedrooms are very small - but it really doesn't matter as the rest of the chalet is spacious and you really spend very little time in there.
