Les brevieres is a very pretty alpine village and is a great location for the espace Killy ski area. Although the snow was a bit slushy at the bottom at the end of the day (as it usually is at this time of year) it was easy and quick to get a bit higher up to better snow conditions. The proximity of the chalet with the ski school and bottom lift was excellent and took away the stress of herding children and skis and poles to and from the slopes - only a 300m walk through the village.
The hot tub was a great hit for all the family as well as the terrace for a bit of afternoon sunbathing!
All the staff were really welcoming and helpful throughout the holiday. Not only did the ski host organise and oversee the ski and boot fitting (at the chalet itself on the first evening) but they also provided help and support throughout the week ensuring that any niggles with equipment were quickly remedied.
The meals were delicious with a great evening menu which was varied and plentiful. The canapes and champagne on the first evening set the tone and expectations for the rest of the week which were met fully. Afternoon tea and the hearty breakfasts ensured that you were never hungry and always had plenty of energy for a day on the slopes. The children's tea provided at 6pm was well balanced and tasty including spaghetti bolognaise and roast beef with all the trimmings.
All in all a great holiday, I'd have no hesitation in recommending this chalet to family and friends and I hope to return another year.
