“Superb Week”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

Have just returned from a wonderful week at Chalet Eterle.The chalet is light, airy and has a lovely spacious sitting and dining area with a homely feeling. Our hosts Joe and Ollie were excellent, taking care of everything including ski hire, ski passes, transport to and from the slopes and much more. Catering was superb from Joe's legendary cakes to Ollie's full english on Saturday. Dinner was always eagerly anticipated and never failed to satisfy being both beautifully cooked and presented. Our experience of the package offered by Riders Refuge in all respects far surpasses that experienced on similar, but more expensive chatel holidys in Trois Vallee. Thank you Joe and Ollie hopefully come a again before the season ends.

We chose Chalet Eterle run by Riders Refuge partly because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor and they were well deserved. The chalet is modern (3 years old), spacious and well equipped. The hot tub is wonderful after a day on the slopes. Joe and Oli, our chalet hosts, were superb. Nothing was too much trouble. Good breakfasts too, especially given Joe's egg phobia. 3 course dinners, with canapés and wine, were a highlight. Future guests should not be put off by the slight distance from the slopes as there was always a minibus & driver available for a 5 minute run to and from any of the nearby lifts. Jill and Jono, who run Riders Refuge were very attentive right from the start of booking our trip, and all the rest of the staff we met (Pete, Eeemma, James, Emma, Matt….) were also great fun. We would definitely recommend the chalet / company, and would be back next week if we could!

Riders Refuge have clearly given thought into what skiers/boarders will benefit from on their holiday. Jonno and Jill were super helpful from the start by sorting out our lift passes, suggesting places to go on the Wednesday night off and booking the restaurant for us, providing transfers from the airport and all sorts of other general information to assist our holiday planning. We used Doorstep Skis for ski hire, which does what it says in the tin and delivers and collects the equipment to the chalet, which made life much easier.

Chalet Eterle was clean, tidy and well equipped. The hot tub was a very welcome treat after a day on the slopes!

Special thanks to Joe and Ollie, who were absolutely fantastic hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for them, their cooking was magnificent and as a group we had lots of laughs. Transport to the ski-lifts everyday was invaluable, as were the afternoon pickups (the designated driver that week was James from Chalet Le Pistes, who was also great fun and super helpful).

Riders Refuge should be commended for its excellent service, which is thoughtful and efficient to the last detail. We would not hesitate to recommend it!

Stayed at Chalet Eterle during Christmas week 2013 - Riders Refuge was great!! They booked our lift passes, ski school, dinner out, hockey tickets - got us to the mountain and home every day . The Chalet was beautiful. Lots of room, very comfortable feel, clean, and best thing... Our chalet hosts: Joe and Ollie. They cooked us amazing food for breakfast, tea and dinner - picked us up when needed and were fun to be with - a great part of our group . Couldn't have asked for a better time or wished for better chalet hosts. We had them. Thanks for everything Joe and Ollie, and huge thanks to Jill and Jono who helped to organise everything. See you next time!

We had a fabulous Christmas at chalet Eterle - Jo and Ollie our chalet boys were super stars! They went out of their way to look after us; even driving us all to the slopes on their day off.
They are excellent cooks too and great company, a fantastic week. Would highly recommend!

It feels a total luxury to stay at Chalet Eterle. Beautiful house, fabulous hosts Jill and Jono who helped with everything, let it be a broken bike, medicine or even a too small hoodie (don't ask!). Chefs Andi and Sinnead who cooked and baked and cleaned and even wrote down my favourite ever carrot cake she had made will be sorely missed, will be in my memory for a long time. I'll be back and I am bringing more of my best friends with me!! Thanks!

Another fantastic week in the care of Riders Refuge- great food, lovely hosts and Jill and Jono did everything they could to make our holiday special. White Water rafting with Frogs rafting was fun too.

We will return
again :)
