“A great experience that renewed our confidence in Alpine chalet holidays”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

After a few very underwhelming stays with chalet operators in St Anton and Val d'Isere, we took a break from the Alps for three years. We decided to give the Alps another go this year, and had such a great time we are already thinking about booking for next year, as our holiday was so much better than previous chalet experiences.

Snowcrazy offer free private transfers from the airport, which makes a great start to the holiday, as an alternative to waiting for ages for sufficient passengers to arrive to fill a coach and then suffering numerous drop offs along the way.

The chalet was much more spacious than other chalets in terms of both room size and common areas, with sunny terraces, sauna and hot tub, and extra touches such as slippers, robes, hair dryers and straighteners.

The staff are the perfect mix of professional and personal, demonstrating great hosting skills. Chris provided a great ski guiding service (very helpful as an introduction to the 3 valleys as it's such a huge skiing area), and James (formerly of Daphne's) is an excellent chef and the quality of his food is far higher than typical chalet food. The wine is also excellent, with a significant effort put into matching it with our evening meals.

Les Allues is a drive to the lifts in the centre of Meribel, but the staff provide drop offs and pick ups throughout the day and this was never an inconvenience. Lift passes and equipment hire can all be arranged via the chalet. There are a couple of decent bars and restaurants in Les Allues, if you fancy a break from the chalet and for staff night off, and overall this was a thoroughly excellent experience.

First visit to Meribel, it did not disappoint! Lovely Chalet with a beautiful outlook. Rooms were perfect and very clean. Food was great and the wine,oh the wine....... for a very nice change was gorgeous.Quite often wine in chalets is often just drinkable but this was seriously yummy!
A big thank you to Laura who dealt with all our various booking changes,believe me there were many. We will definitely be back to one of snowcrazy's chalets.

We stayed here for Christmas 2011. We'd stayed in La Rosiere with Snowcrazy in 2009 and this was just as good.

The chalet is immaculately clean. Our room was large, and our kids room was great for them. The bathrooms were cleaned every day. The beds were comfy and big. I was horrified by the state of my teenage kids' room when I saw it, and told the guys to leave it but they didn't! I didn't make it to the games room, our kids are mid teens and probably a bit old for it.

Ski hire is all sorted out very efficiently, in the chalet, by a local company, who aren't that expensive compared to say, Intersport. Snowcrazy get your liftpasses for you too. Ski guiding is available, and the ski area is so huge it's good to have some local knowledge.

Chris, Ed and James were very amenable, the food was excellent. Poor James' oven broke on Christmas Day but he still pulled it out of the bag. He might be cross with me for saying this, but I think the afternoon cake was a work in progress! The wine was first class, Chris had some great ones stashed away. We took our own gin and the fridge was full of tonics etc.

Like I said, the skiing is fab, the area is huge and it was our favourite skiing ever. It's a bit of a faff to get the bus up there and back, but the guys are pretty easy going over lifts. Chris was very helpful on the last day when my knee had gone and my daughter wasn't well and wanted to come back to the chalet, so he took me to pick her up from the bubble.

The only downer is when are the French going to realise they are pricing themselves out of the market? We used to go to Austria when that was expensive, but Meribel was ludicrous. A lot of the mountain bars and restaurants are empty, because people aren't stupid and won't get fleeced every day. The place is very full of English people too, you might like that, but a bit of foreign culture doesn't go amiss. A restaurant we went to had a girl on the front desk who couldn't speak French. Staying at the chalet makes it reasonable, but you think twice about eating out anywhere. We had two vin chaud waiting for our kids one afternoon, 12 euros, only got to be slightly more expensive and it would be the same as a bar in a 5* in London.

Our kids had a couple of afternoons with Federico from New Gen ski school, as recommended by the chalet. He was great, but we tried to rebook and they just weren't as helpful as they could/should have been. I booked an off piste afternoon with Magic, with Adrien, and my son had a really good time.

We are going to Austria for a long weekend in March, and I have suggested Austria for Christmas, but the kids are adamant that a Snowcrazy Christmas is the way to go!

Room Tip: First floor ones! There is a tiny one in the basement....

Just came back from the best ski holiday ever - fresh snow, great company a lovely chalet and a hot tub , what more could you ask for? Snowcrazy have a wonderful set up with the price including transfers and mini bus to the chaudanne . Les Allues is the next village down the valley from Meribel pretty quiet , definitely not lively which is great for us as we prefer to save our energy for the slopes.
Chris was a great host - I really don't envy him keeping us clients happy - he was incredibly patient with us and a demon skier! Do go out on the ski guiding to Mottaret the burgers have to be seen (but don't tell jamie). You have to make sure you leave lots of room for the food and wine .
The chalet is pretty much what you see in their photos - cosy contemporary - not sure i'll be able to do without a hot tub or sauna on a ski holiday again!

With Chris , Josh and James you can't go wrong!
