I had a feeling that this was going to be a pretty tasty holiday when I was greeted with champagne at the airport. Bonjour Mountain Mavericks!

Upon arrival at Chalet Le Prele, we were greeted by the dynamic duo of Miss Glenda Bottomley and Mr Ryan Fitzpatrick who were a truly fantastic chalet team. What was obvious from the outset was both their enjoyment for the job and working for Mountain Mavericks. Once shown around and settled into the beautiful chalet (more on that later), more champagne was forced upon us accompanied by some crafty canapes whipped up by Ryan. To say that Mountain Mavericks had started well would be an understatement.

For the whole week of our stay, the attention to detail was superb. First, lets talk food and drink. To be greeted each morning with a hot drink in bed was amazing followed up by breakfast fit for a king. Coming back from a great day on the slopes to rest weary legs in the hot tub and eat delicious homemade cake (not in the tub) was lovely. The food rustled up by Ryan in the evening was nothing short of fantastic. He certainly had his work cut out with our group having a number of dietary requirements, however every evening was outperformed by the next. Three courses of luxurious food finished off with a different local cheese each night was incredible. The 10 course extravaganza on Friday night to celebrate my father's 60th birthday was truly superb with Ryan and Glenda working their socks off to make sure everything was perfect. The alcoholic beverages? The house red was absolutely delicious however I fear that we may have drunk the vineyard dry. Ryan's cooking is truly an asset to Mountain Mavericks and he should be very proud of his obvious natural talent.

Chalet le Prele is beautiful and oozes both charm and luxury. All the bedrooms are ensuite (with L'occitane products) and the biggest fluffiest bath towels ever are waiting to wrap you up all cosy warm. Not only this but additional towels (for the hot tub), bathrobes and slippers are provided. The living space is also great. There is the snug on the top floor which provides an area to chillax and watch a movie as well as the modern layout of the open plan kitchen/dining room/seating area by the fire (n.b. Ryan stick to the kitchen-this is not your forte, Glenda-superb work). The layout meant that the group could be doing different things yet still maintain a great social atmosphere as well as being able to interact with Ryan and Glenda.

Special mention should also be made in respect of Olly and Emma. Our holiday was organised in celebration of my father's 60th birthday, and from the moment we enquired about booking with Mountain Mavericks, so much effort was made to make it a holiday to remember. Constant surprises throughout the week that had been organised were so lovely as well as the bunting and balloons that had been put up in the chalet for our arrival. It was obvious that so much thought and hard work had been put into organising our week and it exceeded every expectation of the holiday that I had ever had.

So all in all, I would without doubt recommend Chalet Le Prele for an amazing ski holiday full of charm, luxury and fun times! However I kindly ask that everyone reading this does not book the chalet out completely for 2009-2010 as I am definitely going back. Thanks muchly!

Chalet le Prele is well located 5 mins on the free bus from the slopes in Morzine, and 5 mins on the (also free) bus in the other direction to Avoriaz. We found Morzine to be an excellent ski destination - it was our first skiing holiday, both being complete beginners; we found plenty of slopes on which to hone our skills both in Morzine and nearby Le Gets, whilst the (much) more experienced members of our group had more than enough to keep them busy on the piste too!

Mountain Mavericks as a team were fantastic, and as part of our booking organised many extra touches which really contributed to making the holiday stress free. These included the arrangement of ski boots and skis / poles to be fitted at the chalet, smooth transfer from airport to chalet and back, the best fluffy towels (very important for the hot tub), dressing gowns, slippers and L'Occitane toiletries in every room.

On arrival at Chalet le Prele we were greeted by Glenda and Ryan, a truly excellent team who were friendly and organised from the start, and who really pampered us throughout our stay with morning hot drinks to wake us to delicious breakfasts (accomodating many different and taxing dietary requirements!), amazing afternoon cakes and evening meals truly worthy of a michelin star or three! This amazing gourmet treatment began with welcome champagne and canapes on our first night, and from then on every night surpassed the night before, with three courses and a cheese course, it was truly a highlight of the stay. The culmination of this was the 10 course meal concocted for our penultimate night, which was unbelievable and a true showcase of Ryan's cooking skills (as well as Glenda's organisational ones!), both are a huge asset to the Mountain Maverick team.

Our stay was organised as a trip to celebrate a family member's birthday and throughout the booking process and during our time in Morzine, Mountain Maverick's Emma went beyond the expected to deliver a personalised and unique holiday that will be remembered by all. The many touches are too many to list but include banners, balloons, birthday cakes (plural!), champagne (plural again!!) and of course the extensive 10 course birthday meal!

Other things to mention about the chalet - the house wine (especially the red) included with meals in the booking cost - was fantastic, we certainly got our money's worth! The hot tub is a wonderful extravagance and very well received after a hard day on the slopes, and the chalet itself is cosy, modern and well laid out, lending itself very well to large groups being all open plan. The snug area is fantastic for a non ski day with a hugely extensive list of films and TV shows on the hard drive to peruse, and the wood burning fire is the icing on the cake for a cozy evening in (we bought some marshmallows to toast, which we can well recommend!).

All in all a brilliant stay, we're already saving up for next year.

What an amazing experience this turned out to be!!! Having booked Chalet Le Prele for my husbands surprise 60th this outweighed ALL my expectations. From the e-mail's and chat with the "Fantastic Emma" who did everything in her power to make this a memory never to forget (thank you Emma xx) to the "Beautiful Chalet" the "amazing surroundings" the "fabulous hot tub" the fantastic "Chalet Host - Glenda-nothing ever to much x" and last but by NO means least the "amazing Chef RYAN - (please never stop cooking xxx)" What a fab time we all had. We WILL be back! We were greeted by champagne and canapés followed by an amazing meal, this with the wake up cuppas, super breakfasts carried on all week. Plus surprise after surprise for the "birthday boy" ending in a fantastic 10 Course meal to make my husbands celebration one of the very best he can ever remember. We didn't want to leave :0( - Lots of Love to you all - Joy xxxxxx

What a stay we had at Chalet Le Prele week 8-15th Feb 2009. From the moment we arrived, it was serious fun. How unbelievably jammy we were too to have probably one of the best young chefs in Morzine - Ryan ably assisted by chalet lady Glenda. These two lovely people work so well together to make sure you have the best time ever during the stay. Nothing was too much for them. As we were there to celebrate Garham's 50th birthday, each day they did and prepared something special. Every day was a party day. The piece de resistance was the 10 course meal Ryan prepared. A meal never ever to be forgotten. The service, attention, food, ambience was second to none. Well done Mountain Mavericks! Sue and Mike Varnals
