“An Incredible 84 hours...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

All 16 of us had the most amazing 3 night/4 day trip thanks to the team at Hugski.

From the initial enquiry email, Lucy was efficient and accommodating in helping us arrange a shorter stay and very patient in explaining the other essentials of a skiing holiday; due to 12 of the group being complete beginners.

Lucy arranged transfers (which were on time) and recommended Doorstep Skis (who had our equipment waiting for us on arrival) making sure our trip went smoothly.

The chalet was perfect, with an enormous living area, cosy fires and a lovely long dining table.

Lizi and Dave were exceptional hosts, warm, friendly and helpful. The food was incredible and the best I have ever experienced in a Catered Chalet, despite the size of the party. They were also very understanding when a guest had the midnight munchies!!

Thank you for such a lovely time, we are only sad we didnt stay longer.

Room Tip: The only other comment I would make, is that if you're staying there and a light sleeper, don...

Hugski was recommended to us by a friend who had spotted them in resort and thought they looked good. From the first contact we had Lucy was incredibly helpful and accommodating of our (ever changing!) needs. The chalet itself is perfectly located and for this reason alone we would return. The communal space was better than any we've seen before, as there was plenty of space, the sofas were very comfortable (and there were enough for all 18 guests!) and the decor and cleanliness were spot on. The one thing it didn't have which we usually opt for is a hot tub, but apparently one is being installed this week so we'll definitely be back! The sauna was lovely though as an alternative.

Dave and Lizzie were fantastic hosts. The food was incredible - and I had to laugh as another reviewer did what we did at the end of the week - photograph the recipes!! Can't wait to try them at home. I was also impressed with the meals they prepared for the children all week - balanced meals instead of the easy unhealthy options they could have gone for (because we all know what children can be like!) Well done guys, we'll miss you if you're in Africa by the time we return!

My only criticism - shared by other reviewers - is that the bedroom sizes were small and the lack of storage was a disappointment. When you're on a ski holiday you often have more bulky items to store, so we feel there should have been a proper wardrobe at least. It would also have been good if all rooms were en suite - which would match the quality with the price tag a little more. However, this is a small point to make amongst the amazing chalet. The rooms were decorated beautifully and were clean and fresh every day.

I travelled in a group of 8 adults and 2 children both under 2. The chalet was positioned perfectly for such a group; everyone could come and go as they pleased and the lifts were just a 5 minute walk. I went up the mountain a number of times with the children and hired sledges for them easily from the village (4 euros for half a day). It was 7 Euros for a foot pass and meant we could meet the other members of the group on occasion up the mountain if we wanted (as well as being able to do walks with the sledges in the beautiful scenery).

Les Gets itself is a great village with everything you'd need for a skiing week. We thought we might have to pop to Morzine every now and then but the bars, restaurants, cafes, shops and supermarket was all there in the village. Great for families, couples, friends. Can't wait for next year!!

Thanks Lucy, Dave & Lizzie!

Great holiday. The chalet is nicely positioned in relation to the ski lifts (approx 5 min walk) and is clean and cosy. Great hosts Dave and Lizi. They make the best meals...I would love to take them home with me! My only negative comment is that the bedrooms could be a bit bigger with more storage (ours didn't have an en suite loo, just a shower/sink). Communal areas are perfect though and very spacious!

Our first time skiing in Les Gets with 3 children (twins aged 11 and daughter 4). A catered chalet worked really well and Lucy and her team at Hugski did a brilliant job of making sure we were all looked after! The chalet location was perfect (5mins walk from the bubble lift) and the resort was great for kids - very family-friendly. Lucy hand-held us through all the pre-holiday questions we had and was a great help with recommending ski hire companies, organising lift passes and transfers and even arranging a birthday cake for our twin boys whilst we were there! We used Vermont for ski hire which was great because the shop is opposite the chalet and they have another shop at the top of the bubble lift where you can leave your skis overnight and save dragging them back down again (great if you have small children!). The chalet itself was very comfortable - lovely open fire, plenty of storage for ski gear inc boot warmers, huge beds and great open plan living / dining area. Food was brill. Lots of great memories and would thoroughly recommend Hugski! So nice to use a business which treats you like a person not a number.

I have just returned along with 15 friends from our second holiday with Hugski Holidays at the same chalet, Chalet Gentiane, Les Gets. The chalet is in an excellent location and more than suitable for all types whether it be families or friends. the lounge area is fantastic and has a dining table to seat 16-people together, once we ate the fantastic food prepared by the lovely Lizzie and Dave we were able to move onto the lounge area and were served with cheese & biscuits! Fantastic!! the lounge area has plenty of sofas and there is a large log burner to make it even more homely.

The food prepared by Lizzie and Dave was amazing from breakfast, afternoon tea right to the deserts, I couldn't fault them as cooks or hosts in general, to the point that we photographed some of there recipes.

Lucy ensured everything ran smoothly from start to finish assiting us with the booking, transfers, ski hire and checking everything was ok when we bumped into her on the pistes.

I would not hesitate in recommending Hugski Holidays or Chalet Gentiane.

A big thank you to Lucy, Dave and Lizzie.

Have just returned from an amazing week at chalet gentiane in les gets, travelled as a group consisting of 5 adults & 7 kids ranging from 10-5! The chalet was in a perfect location just a short walk to the chavannes bubble & as an added bonus we organised ski hire through Vermont, who have a shop 2 doors away from the chalet & also one at the top of the bubble, so we were able to leave all the gear at the top which made life so much easier! The chalet itself was really comfortable & the living accommodation spacious, was a tiny bit disappointed with the size of the bedrooms but as we had the chalet to ourselves this wasn't really an issue. Our hosts Lizzie & Dave were lovely, really great with the kids & excellent cooks! Lucy from hug ski was extremely helpful throughout & stayed in touch throughout the week to make sure we were ok...All in all I would recommend this chalet to anyone, especially those with kids looking to take the stress out of a ski holiday!
