18 of us stayed at Chalet Chartreuse last week (25.01 - 01.02) and had an absolutely brilliant week. Mikey is a very talented chef and served up better food than I've eaten in many restaurants and Marc goes out of his way and above his job description to accommodate all requests.
A huge breakfast every day, fantastic home made cakes every afternoon, champagne and canapes in front of the open fire at 7pm followed by a 3 course meal with fine wines and then (if you've got room), a cheeseboard and bottle of port - amazing. The chalet is very comfortable indeed and with such rustic charm. The hospitality and service at the chalet was so good that the only night we went out was the night the staff have the night off!
The hot tub was used every day - rolling up the shutter to look up at snow covered mountains cannot be beaten. The location of the chalet is great too, just a short walk to the Diable lift and we had some great skiing too. The staff went above and beyond what I was expecting, getting the hot tub ready for us and bringing wine (in plastic cups, don't worry owners!) out to us while we were in it.
We had one of the bedrooms on the ground floor - small but perfectly comfortable. Happier with this one as it had a nice sized shower - some of the rooms on the top floor have a small bath with a shower over it which wouldn't have suited us as well. Our room was behind the kitchen, a minor point really as the boys didn't crash around, and we were happy to be up early to make the most of our skiing anyway so no complaints there.
Chalet Chartreuse has set the bar high for chalet living for our next trip - I hope Neilson recognise the hard work and extra effort put in by Marc & Mikey as we were talking to several other holiday-goers who were having a very different experience to us!
