“Amazing Week”
Reviewed March 10, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

A truly fabulous holiday, gorgeous accommodation, fabulous food. The ski resort is stunning with lots of different areas to go to. The town Chatel has some nice restaurants and shops for days where you don't want to ski or want to go shopping. The chalet has everything you need and Ian and Joanne couldn't be more accommodating giving us lifts to and from the slopes. Very nice and relaxing in the stunning chalet. We will certainly visit again!

“Amazing year on year!!”
Reviewed March 4, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We have just arrived back after our 4th year staying in this chalet and we cant wait to return next year. The Hosts Ian and Jo are always welcoming and do all they can for you, they drop you off and collect you where is best for you and anytime that suits you, whether you want to be on the mountain bright and early or have a later start.
The chalet itself is beautiful, spotless and contemporary with the added bonus of a spacious hot tub!
The bedrooms are well presented, cleaned daily and with an extra touch of a chocolate left on the pillow for you... its the little touches such as this that makes this chalet the best. Having been to the area for over 10 years and staying in many chalets I can easily say this is the friendliest and best presented of them all.

Danielle and Rob provide freshly baed cakes daily for when you arrive back after a day on the slopes, cooked breakfast (even made me crepes as they were my fav!!) dinner is on another level, the presentation of the food is 5 star and all dishes taste amazing. Both very friendly and accommodating making sure your glass is always topped up. A lovely couple and easy to talk to which adds to the relaxing atmosphere of the chalet.

Overall this place really has got it spot on, we would highly recommend you to stay here. We always hate leaving and get excited throughout the year to be returning the following season. Can't fault the place and we always have the most relaxing holidays here.

“The standard of this chalet is a cut above the rest”
Reviewed February 18, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Our flight was delayed and Ian the owner managed to keep our transfers alive as we were over 2 hours delayed, we eventually got the Chalet at midnight, to find a pie warming in the oven for our teenagers who were starving. We had a glass of wine and to bed.

Next day 8 am, ski fitting service were on the doorstep with our preordered gear- very efficient but quite expensive.

Rob and Danielle then served our breakfast, which as it turned out was hot breakfast every day and with a choice of eggs bacon sausage etc. Meals on the nighttime were 4 courses with canapés as well! The cooking is of a very high standard, with restaurant quality food and service , for instance the last night meal was mini croque madams and welsh rarebit canapés- then beef cheek and Abondance risotto ( which he had been cooking for three days), then stuffed pork with parsnip and apple puree and fondant potatoes and cabbage with a peppercorn sauce, a superb combination of taste and texture, followed by chocolate torte and ice cream, the cheese and biscuits !!! phew.

The chalet has 5 bedrooms , all large with ensuite- the showers are great and beds massive.

The lounge area has two main sitting areas with a separate tv/games room.

Ian finished the fit out of the chalet himself, and the attention to detail is very high

Ian ferried us around each day with drop off and pick up whenever we wanted.

This enabled us to start our skiing in various different points so that we could explore the portes du soleil. Locally there is a lot of skiing with Chatel, Pre le Joux, Petit Chatel, Panthiaz and Cret Beni all being different drop off and ski areas. We also managed to get to Les Lindarets, a great valley, Les Crosets, Morgins and Grand Paradis in Switzerland- loads to do, and good variety.

I think we paid a little bit more than our average Catered Chalet price, but we got this back in quality of accommodation, food and service.

Negatives- need cash at end of the week to pay for lift passes and equipment, and not walkable to any bars etc

Positives- not walkable to bars

Reviewed January 21, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Without a doubt, the best ski chalet we have ever stayed in. Ian & Joanne, our hosts, were very accommodating and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The real bonus was the restaurant quality food thanks to Rob & Danielle. We would definitely go back.

“Absolutely top class accommodation with exceptional hoosts Ian and Joanne”
Reviewed July 11, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Ian and Joanne are the most friendly and welcoming hosts and nothing is too much trouble, The accommodation is fabulously luxurious and the location is quite simply stunning. Fantastic amenities on your doorstep, lovely bars and restaurants and walks/activities to suit all abilities. Imagine sitting on the veranda at the end of a busy day looking across the valley and the amazing vista sipping a glass of chilled local wine, fantastic!

I can guarantee that Alpine majestic will not disappoint and we will definitely be returning again in the future to enjoy Ian and Joanne's fantastic hospitality and their wonderful chalet. If this holiday does not far exceed your expectations I would be very surprised. See you soon lovely people.

“Stunning”
Reviewed April 13, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

A group of 9 of us visited Alpine Majestic in Jan. It blew our minds, everything about the trip was stunning. The food, the accommodation, the scenery & location. I actually fell sick for a few days and Ian & Joanne were so accommodating and considerate (they actually took me to the Drs). Ian & Joanne are superb hosts and cant do enough for you. Its one of the best holidays we have been on. Our group of friends (some of which are keen skiers and have been to many resorts) have never been somewhere so beautiful and accommodating. The food is excellent and so much of it, afternoon tea with homemade cake awaits on after skiing. The team go above and beyond to ensure you have a great time. We will be returning and strongly recommend.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed April 12, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had our second stay here this Easter, and yet again it was a truly wonderful holiday. Jo and Ian welcomed us back into their beautiful chalet and, as before, it was warm and comfy...just perfect.
The whole experience is great, the decor, the furnishings, the hot tub, the food, the location, everything!
Breakfast is surprisingly calm considering there were 13 of us to get up and out onto the slopes. Lifts to and from the slopes were provided at times to suite us, thanks to Ian. Afternoon tea was just the ticket, then the entire evening is a lovely relaxed affair with total freedom to enjoy the chalet and it's facilities. A daily soak in the hot tub is a must, followed by tasty and beautifully prepared meals, a couple of glasses of wine and a cheese board in front of the fire. Perfect.
There were 6 adults and 7 kids on our stay, but the chalet is big and spacious, giving you all enough space.
I can't think of a better place to be in the Porte de Soleil. Jo and Ian, you should be so proud of yourselves, what you offer your visitors is amazing.
