We stayed at Chalet Kitz as on a TUI (Thomson, Crystal) package ski holiday. The chalet was clean, warm and comfortable with plenty of communal seating. Admittedly when all 12 of the guests were around, it was a little cramped around the dinner table, but in general there was plenty of space for the 3, 4, 5 or 6 people loafing around at any time.
It probably helped that there were 5 separate groups in the chalet (rather than one large group plus us) which meant that no-one felt that they "owned" the place. It also helped that everyone seemed to get on just fine.
We were staying in Room 6 (upstairs double with a bath and balcony) and in general the upstairs rooms are a little larger and had much more light. Our room was large, had very high ceilings (which enhanced the feeling of spaciousness) and the bathroom was large, clean and comfortable. Realistically, we couldn't ask for anything more.
Our chalet host (Philip) was excellent, organised, efficient and friendly. Every day he produced a fine breakfast (cereal, croissants, bread and up to 3 components of a "full English" - Wednesday was omlette day, the highlight of the breakfast week), afternoon tea and then a well executed and filling three course meal (though usually due to over-indulging on the main course, I couldn't make room for dessert). Everyone wanted Phil's recipe for bread and butter pudding. He even managed to produce delicious food for a vegetarian guest (we know because we got to try it too).
We forgot that the place had a sauna and hot-tub so forgot our swimming costumes, the other guests loved it.
The only possible complaint was that it was a 5 minute walk to the lifts (downhill) but we could have taken the bus. If you don't mind a little wanter through the trees you can (snow permitting) ski to within 10 feet of the boot room door.
Just outside the chalet is the woodland path that takes you to la Rosiere, it's pisted every night. The resort itself is quiet but has a couple of excellent restaurants we tried (Genepi, the Grange), a small ice skating rink (filled in an afternoon when it was too snowy to truly enjoy skiing) and a small but god selection of shops.
