"Perfect"

Linda, Edinburgh
5/ out of 5
There was nothing wrong with it really! Everything was nice and clean and the girl and boy running the chalet were great. It’s right next to one of the slopes so you can ski straight from the chalet (the slope was easy enough to suit everyone). The food was beautiful. Breakfast was continental with a cooked dish if we wanted. At 4ish they always made a cake so you could come in and have that. They’d tell you in the morning what they were planning for dinner and give you a choice – dinner was 4 courses and it was first class. My room was on the bottom floor near the boot room, it was basic but fine and they cleaned it every day if you wanted. The chalet has a wee balcony looking out as well as a television and a games room so the facilities are good too.

"Nice chalet in a great resort"

I wouldn’t describe it as plush but it’s a nice and accommodating chalet in a good location (which is why we picked it!). The young guys in charge of the food did a good job.

"Just clip in and go, slopeside heaven"

A top of the line catered chalet nestled right on the piste, from whence you can ski right onto the slopes in the Portes du Soleil linked domain. Great for those keen-bean skiers and boarders among us, who want to hit the snow first thing (me included!). The large living area has open fireplace and a sauna where you can chill out at the end of the evening. The operator of the chalet has a reputation as a terrific chalet host, so you enjoy home-cooked food and complementary selection of wines and coffee. But don't overdo it because, with a slopeside location like this, you'll be up and out with the first lifts in the morning.
