What a great quirky, stylish chalet. You leave your boots to warm just inside the door and from that moment you are pampered. Chef Dan was incredible. Loved his crab soufflés especially and the way he served up all our meals - as if we were in a Michelin starred restaurant. Even his vegetarian dishes were inventive . New Year’s Eve with a ten course menu was a real night to remember and Abi had produced our favourite coffees or hot chocolates from the professional looking coffee machine before we had even asked by morning two. Views from the hot tub, being on the piste in minutes, and being just a short distance from Verbier (great spa at the W hotel near Médran lifts) were other highlights. Kids liked ice skating ( only 5 francs to hire the skates from Monet for an hour).
Only disappointed by weather one day - but everything else was amazing!
We (three generations, age range 17-87) spent a great week during the Christmas holidays at Chalet Auriane. Service and meals were great and catered very well to various allergies and tastes. The chalet staff (Dan and Abi) are very serviceminded and a pleasure to be around. The chalet is well laid out with four regular doubles and a room with two bunk beds plus sauna, outdoor jacuzzi, dining room and a large living room. Location near the piste is nice (although it should be mentioned that La Tzoumaz skiing is not overly demanding). I would recommend Chalet Auriane to any group looking for an informal, yet high quality chalet experience.
The chalet is perfectly placed for skiing. There is a super furnuclular that lifts you up from the car park to the chalet and then from there up to the piste. The chalet is very spacious and with its open plan, is very welcoming and makes one instantly feel at home. It is kittled out with audio, wifi, hottub and a great sauna.
We had the most superb catering with Dan being the head chef and helped by Ellie. The food was very very good and I dont say that lightly. I have eaten in Les Manoir and other 1-2 star restaurants and the food at the chalet was comparable.
The entire stay was brilliant and I cant wait until we return.
Chalet Auriane is a little gem.
The owners have decorated the interior in such a tasteful and fun way that it's impossible for anyone not to love it there. It's all so well-thought through and leaves you wanting for nothing. The view is breathtaking- especially when sipping champagne from the hot tub :-)
The only thing you may be fighting over is who will get the master bedroom!
The whole experience is made absolutely perfect with Elly who looks after you so well you'll hate going home without her, and Dan who will dazzle you and your stomach every day of your stay, morning - afternoon and evening!!
The village of La Tzoumaz is small and friendly, which may not be for everyone but suited us fine.
The direct access to the slopes with your private "lift" is fantastic, thought not for first-time skiers. Our kids had never skied before so we needed to walk them to the free shuttle bus, 100 yards from the chalet, which took them to the classes at the baby lift.
There is some nice skiing to be done around La Tzoumaz and easy access with the lifts to Verbier area, but bare in mind that this station is more weather dependant.
In any case, even if you loose a couple of hours of ski, there are worse places to be stuck than Chalet Auriane!
An absolute topper, for young and old!

Location couldn't be much better. Stunning chalet.
Staff and food was absolutely incredible and unforgettable.
Great for a group of friends and/or families with children.
Level of service was above and beyond our expectations.
A truly memorable and personalised stay.
Would love to go back again someday for sure!
Thank you so much Paul, Ellie and Dan!
The beauty and perfection of this chalet and location is beyond words. Visiting in the summer with family between ages of 6 to 70 is was perfect for all. Amazing views, fabulous hikes, accessible for day trips. From The comfort of the beds, to all the little details between made it spectacular. Only problem was that the week flew by...

The chalet is stunning with all the little luxuries you would expect and more. We were lucky as the snow is awesome right now and we had lots of sunshine too. Found it easy skiing in and out. dint try the luge but did make our own luge slide in the garden!!
Evenings watching teh latest movies together wrapped in fur throws after Andy's amazing dinners( we could have been in a Michelin starred restaurant-the best canapés we have ever had too!!) have left us with previous memories and we learned to play backgammon by the fire.Adults and teenagers left with huge smiles on their faces!! Amazing ski holiday.
