What can we say about our experience with dealing with Sam and Steve at Absolute Alpine but WOW !
What can we say about staying in the Chalet La Roche but WOW!
In fact everything had the WOW factor !!
We went along as a group (6 adults and 2 very young children) and travelled on the 25th January for a weeks skiiing and loved every minute.
We were picked up at the airport by Steve from Absolute Alpine and couldn't see much on our transfer to the chalet as it was dark, but when we got to the village of Samoens it was like going back to Christmas as everything was lit up and looked all so magical and couldn't wait to see it in the daylight .
We arrived at our chalet and greeted by Vic and Geoff who turned out to be not only a fantastic couple but our cook (Vic) and her helper/host !!( Geoff). The food was out of this world and everynight we left the table feeling very satisfied (No good for the waistline though !!) and every course was a favourite . We asked if they could come home with us but we were politely told we couldn't afford them !!
We even had a homemade cake waiting for us when we got back in the afternnoons
The Chalet it's self is absolutely gorgeous and very tastefully decorated, and the views across the village and mountains are breathtaking .
I remember going to bed that first night and feeling like a child at christmas waiting for tomorrow to come and certainly wasn't disappointed .
After a wonderful breakfast (so much choice) we all headed up the mountain and again we were all very impressed as eveything was on hand and well catered for all level of skiers, non skiers and young children , definitely a big plus .
After our day on the slopes we had the luxury of the huge hot tub on the balcony which certainly was a luxury !!
Overall nothing was to much trouble and because we all enjoyed it that much, we have all booked to go again next year.
Roll on 2015
