For the first time ever we returned to a ski chalet - mainly because we knew that the wonderful Sam would still be in charge, but also because we have grown to love Samoens. The snow was not as good as we would have liked, but we still enjoyed ourselves immensely, largely because the chalet is so comfortable, and the other guests were all great.
We know there are more luxurious chalets, but as we travel as a family of 5, we think Chalet Giffre is perfect. The rooms are good, the food is great, the wine flows, the hot water supply is excellent, and the chalet host and her helpers could not do more to help.
We could probably have saved a few Euros by arranging ski hire in one of the local shops, but Dale's in-house ski hire is so good I'm prepared to pay the extra. And, he's around to sort out any problems you may have (we had none)!!!
One of the other families in the chalet were on their third visit, as were the friends we travelled with, we were on our second, and the other family are already planning to book again for next year. Need I say more - I just hope we can get in!!!
