New Services for 2020/21!

What with trying to live and work with the ‘new normal’ we having been scratching our heads trying to come up with the best ways to accommodate our booked (and future) guests while putting their minds at ease in these uncertain times.

Let's start again!

This past year has certainly been a challenging year. Covid has knocked us all sideways and has hit everyone personally in devastating ways. Sadly, to add to the depressing state of the situation is the cancellation of the Snowtrain this season.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow....

As we run around like maniacs trying to get everything in place and ready for the start of the season we have been blessed by a downpouring of the white stuff. It has been tempting to down tools and have fun all day but we have to be disciplined and get the chores done before any fun can be had.

Finally a chance to start my blog!

Where do I begin? It is now a month from closing the chalets after our first season at the helm of Ski Hiver. What a huge learning curve it has been; both rewarding and frazzling in equal measure.

Les Arcs by Rail - The Perfect Way to Travel!

When you think about getting to the French Alps for a ski break by way of the usual flights, it’s hard not to envisage something of a nightmare scenario. The reason being that hot-footing it through airports, on and off planes and then onto your final destination with a bus or train transfer doesn’t exactly sound like a thrill a minute…which it isn’t.

Catered Chalet Holidays – What’s the Appeal?

If you’ve never before tried out a catered chalet ski holiday, chances are you won’t be familiar with the benefits of doing so. More often than not, folks heading to the slopes will opt for a standard hotel with the board they’re happiest with, or they’ll look into the self-catering options like chalets and apartments.

  • "Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay last week. We absolutely loved the chalet, great location! Also wanted to mention how incredible Rosie and Jake were, the food was outstanding and both were brilliant with our son Arlo. We enjoyed it so much that we are thinking about coming back in Feb / March." (Ali Bovis, Caribou, Dec 2019)
  • “I can tell you on behalf of the group that we had an excellent stay and were extremely well looked after by Cat and Clive. They were very attentive to our needs and nothing was too much trouble. The chalets are perfectly positioned for the skiing and village, plus very well appointed. We have had a boys January week in Montchavin every year for the last 10+ and will no doubt be returning in 2021. I will most certainly contact you in the autumn to discuss the next trip.” (Martyn Pacey, Hermine, Jan 2020)
  • “We had a fantastic time. Really couldn’t have asked for better. Pat and Pete were fantastic hosts, and really looked after our every need. They were great to have around; they provided a wealth of knowledge on the area and where to ski and were only too happy to answer our million questions pertaining to every other aspect of skiing in Montchavin. The food was of a great standard, and we honestly enjoyed (aka loved) every meal. The chalet was really nice and clean. This experience was certainly one of our best ski trips ever.” (Tessa Kershaw, Lievre Blanc, Jan 2020)
  • Thank you for allowing us to share your wonderful chalet. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Montchavin, and in your apartment with Pete and Pat. Pete and Pat were awesome, and the food was superb. We had a great time, and will spread the word this side. (Chris Cooke, Lievre Blanc, Jan 2020)
  • We had the most amazing week at Christmas this year. The chalet was great, the other guests were brilliant company, the skiing was awesome, the food was fabulous and Pete and Pat were the perfect hosts. As far as ski holidays go, we don't know how it could get any better! (Kevin Smith, Lievre Blanc, Dec 19)
