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.
