We would thoroughly recommend Chalet Orion as a base for a skiing holiday. We stayed in the week leading up to Christmas 2016, when the whole of Europe was struggling with a freak reduced amount of snow. But I can honestly say that we had a fabulous holiday and would all (2 adults, one 16 year old, one 18 year old) love to return. The chalet itself is very comfortable (we all loved the log...

We have just returned from a week stay at the Orion Chalet. The group consisted of 11 adults and 1 child. The booking experience by Andy and Liz proved to be excellent. Liz anticipated all of our needs, prompting us to decide on transfer options and booking it for us. Once we arrived the Chalet was outstanding, the photos are a great representation of the property. All of the bedrooms are spacious and the ensuite...

After such an amazing stay last year we decided to return once again to Chalet Orion and we were not disappointed. Liz and Andy were incredibly welcoming and our hosts, David and Lucy were incredible. The food was pretty much the best we have had in any catered chalet and David and Lucy were attentive, cheerful and wonderful to have around. The children (3) and (8) loved them. The chalet is superb, clean, tidy and...

We stayed at Chalet Orion in a group of 9. A really excellent week in a superb chalet. The chalet hosts David and Lucy were amazing. Absolutely the best chalet food ever. Lucy is a fantastic cook and David was endlessly helpful. The wine was better than usual and well chosen. The honesty bar was great value. Owners Andy and Liz run a very impressive set up here and we had a great week. It's...

Duncurin and friends, eleven in total, were very lucky to travel to Samoens this New Year and what a super choice of accommodation. The slopes, at first, were a little thin and icy but the welcome we received in these wonderful chalets was both warm and generous. Our party was split across the two chalets. Eridan is the smaller of the two and Orion larger. The chalets are just a 10 minute walk from the...
