“Excellent skiing. Lovely chalet. Superb food. Great hosts.”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed with a large group at Les Frangins for Christmas. The chalet is very comfortable. Our food was superb. Transfers were fine. Owners did all they could to accomadate us. The chalet hosts were lovely. Great drop of wine. Thoroughly recommended.

“Great hosts and great chalet”
Reviewed July 24, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed at Chalet les Frangins for a weekend of mountain biking. There was 3 of us and we were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves. Glen and Frances made us feel really welcome for the whole weekend, from Glen greeting us when we pulled up on the drive to Frances waving us off as we left.

The guys went out of their way to help us on a number of occasions, checking that our rental bikes were sorted, giving us a lift up to lifts and more!

The chalet's location is great and a couple of mins walk from the centre of Chatel and the hot tub and sauna were both very welcome to rest weary legs after a days biking (after washing off the mud obviously!).

I highly recommend this chalet and Glen & Frances personally, would love to come back again for a ski break!

Thank you!

“Everyone should experience the chalet frangines at least once in a lifetime”
Reviewed May 20, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Stayed here with a large group of friends in January 2013. Chalet Frangines is extremely comfortable and the minibus service to and from the slopes was very much appreciated by all. The service from Glen, Frances and the young hosts was outstanding - they even managed to catch a haggis in the Alps for us! We have stayed in numerous chalets over the years but enjoyed this so much that we are booking to return there next year.

“Great place & Great hosts”
Reviewed May 16, 2013 for a stay in March 2011

I’ve now stayed with Glen and Frances on several occasions, solo and in a group, and I've never been disappointed. The Les Frangins chalet is a lovely place with excellent facilities and clean good size rooms. The welcome and hospitality you receive is 2nd to none in my opinion.

Drop off and pick up at/from the ski lifts at in the morning and afternoon is most welcome, and the cake and tea when you return from the slopes just hits the spot. The evening meals are lovely coupled with a good bottle of wine to wash them down. Glen and Frances are also a great help in organising ski passes, ski lessons, and anything else you might need help with.

Chatel itself is a picturesque place to ski and for the more adventurous skier the Portes Du Soleil region which links France and Switzerland is great. Again Glen and Frances’ local knowledge of the slopes is really helpful, and on the odd occasion they get some time are excellent tour guides, which is a great added value to the day’s skiing.

Other added bonuses are the hot tub, sauna, free wi-fi and games rooms, and the Boot heaters means the boots are nice and toastie for first thing in the morning :)

I’ve also stayed at the Aaron, which is also a great chalet and right at the bottom of the Linga Tele-Cabin, and the Linga slope is a great thigh burner to finish the day’s skiing off! Alternatively you can always take the more sedate and leisurely Tele-Cabin down!

I’d highly recommend either Chalet for an excellent week’s ski trip!

“Excellent”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

I stayed at one of Alpine Quests' chalets in Chatel (Aaron) and had a wonderful holiday. Glen and Frances made me very welcome, the chalet was spacious and very well positioned and the food excellent. You can ski to within 100 yards of the lift, though on the way back it is is about 200 yards. The chalet staff were very friendly and helpful. I have been on chalet holidays for over 20 years and this was one of the best. No complaints or downsides at all!

“Best Ski Chalet Holiday for value for money and excellence service.”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Having stayed in many ski chalets i can confidently say Glen and Frances certainly go the extra mile for their guests...ferrying guests to and fro to the pistes, arranging lift passes,helping with special birthday celebrations to name a few. The chalet is very comfortable with hot tub, sauna ,endless supply of hot water and excellent food and wine in generous quantities.The Porte De Soleil ski region provides great skiing for all abilities and you can ski in a different resort each day.Glen gave us some great recommendations for restaurants try on the slopes...all excellent.

“Great chalet holiday”
Reviewed March 13, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Would highly recommend this chalet. The chalet was comfortable, clean with a spacious sitting room with wonderful views over the valley. The food was well planned with plenty of good drinkable wine. Thanks to Glen and Francis we were taken by mini bus to the ski lifts in the morning and collected in the afternoon, a real bonus!
