Wow!! What to add to the already excellent comments about this place that hasn't already been said! Having scoured the internet for several weeks looking for something a bit special/different for our extended family ski trip at Christmas I happened upon the Chalet Ecole website and knew i'd found something special. A little more research (including tripadvisor!) and recommendations in the Telegraph was enough for me to take the plunge and book the trip. 10 of us stayed (6 adults and 4 children ages 8-4) and were picked up by Dan at Geneva airport (transfers included!) which was really straightforward and saved a lot of hassle - especially with 4 young kids in tow. The chalet exceeded our expectations (it really does look better in the flesh!) and was suitably complete with Christmas tree (real!) and the whole ambience was very festive. After our long journey we were introduced to our chalet host Ian - who had already prepared cake and afternoon tea for us with a warm fire to relax next to - an excellent start to the trip. Food was gourmet standard and everything was tailored to us (kids ate earlier) - every evening felt like we'd gone to a 5 star restaurant - superb. Dan and Becky were only too happy to help with anything we needed - the kids were driven up to the resort every morning for lessons and picked up again in the afternoon with no fuss - again another reason to recommend this place. Christmas day itself was amazing - we arrived back from day out on the slopes to home made Christmas cake, mince pies and chocolate treats for the kids. Mulled wine prior to dinner then champagne and crackers before a cracking roast turkey with all the trimmings, followed by raspberry pavlova and flaming Christmas pud!! Would whole heartedly recommend this special place for a relaxing break with friends/family - or in fact if you just fancy a rest!! Skiing was excellent and we hope to come back at some point -Thanks Dan, Becky and Ian for such a memorable trip. Love from the Bidgoods, Sewells and Minters.
