Chilly Powder was a fantastic experience. Perfectly setup for families - our 14 month old daughter had a brilliant time there. Having a creche on-site does really make a world of difference. The team of Paul, Francesca and Nick go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect. Francesca's love of food and wine definitely shows thru in the outstanding cuisine - the dinners each night were absolutely top notch and the selection of red wines were outstanding. They definitely work hard to make guests feel as if they are part of their friends and family. Whether its recommendations of things to do in Morzine to the right snowboard / ski school to the right place to rent equipment, they really go above and beyond to make sure you are all set. I must also give a special mention to Richie, the barman, as he was fantastic. He was incredibly friendly, super attentive and always made sure people were well served. Even when other staff may have been busy, he would always be willing to help out in any way he could (even if it had nothing to do with his role).
The location couldn't be more convenient. The lifts are literally across the street for Avoriaz and you can snowboard or ski all the way down to the back door of the chalet. You also have the option of catching the bus across the street and taking the short journey to Morzine to snowboard/ski there or just walk around the town.
The communal dining for breakfast and dinner is really nice as you do get to meet some interesting people during your stay and generally everyone is really friendly. Its also a nice touch that they have with their phone system which can work as a baby monitor so you can enjoy your dinner while being able to make sure your little one is sleeping soundly.
For Christmas, I thought it was a nice touch that they organised to have Santa at the chalet to hand out presents to all of the children. Its little things like that which make a huge difference.
We had a great time and we will definitely be back. That is the one brilliant thing we noticed during our stay is how many of the families were repeat customers. That definitely tells you that Paul, Francesca, Nick and the rest of the team have got the right recipe to ensure you have a great holiday.
