  • Many thanks for a very enjoyable stay last week in Chalet Barthelemy. We both had an excellent Christmas. The chalet was as great as we remembered and the food was excellent in both taste and presentation and could not be faulted. Please pass on our feedback and thanks to Mike and Keisha. (Richard Dunstan, Jan 19)
  • Everything was perfect, the chalet, location, and communication. Pete and Pat were absolutely fantastic hosts and the food was amazing. (Jeanette Panayi, Jan 2019)
  • We have just returned from a stay in Chalet Hermine our hosts were Cat and Clive. It was our first experience of staying in a catered chalet and it was truly fabulous we had such an amazing time. We had welcome drinks with our hosts on the first evening and Cat asked us all our names, the following morning she greeted us all individually at breakfast considering there was 11 of us I was really impressed!! The food was amazing and perfect after a full day of skiing, especially the lamb tagine this was awesome! Cat and Clive could not do enough to help and made us feel so welcome. I would definitely use this chalet again and would recommend your chalets, the location could not have been better and having such great hosts just made the experience really special.

  • We would like to say our stay with you last week was excellent. The hosts were lovely and really great cooks, they made us feel relaxed and at home. We transferred from Genève with Mountain Rescue who also gave a brilliant service. I would definitely recommend both you and them to friends travelling in the area in the future. In fact, I met an old colleague at Geneva airport and gave her your company name as they ski every year in that area. We wish you all the best with your company for the future and sure it will go well. (Sue Collinge, 4th Feb 2019)
  • We cannot praise your Chalet Chanterelle highly enough. Booking our stay and the changes we requested were made very smoothly. Your staff were welcoming and friendly as was the chalet atmosphere. Warm cosy, clean and comfortable, we were very impressed. The food was great and much appreciated after a long drive. The Chalet location is ideal and free parking too. Having enjoyed our stay so much we will most definitely be back. We can hand on heart highly recommend Chalet Chanterelle. Thanks Guys, in particular thanks to Chris who is a star.
