Put skiing to one side for a moment, I have to mention the first night as we enjoyed an exceptional eight course Asian banquet which my party agreed was well up with five star standards. Interesting, flavoursome and beautifully presented, well served and paced, Howard is a Chef going places! The wine and bar offering is extensive to complement the superb food. The hot or cold breakfast is excellent with a vast range of tea and coffee. Nick and Beth the owners obviously know their stuff and I would recommend a stay based on food alone.
Along with their assistants Kaitlin and Georgie, they are a friendly, welcoming and attentive team and nothing was too much trouble including rides to and from town.
The bedrooms are wonderfully comfortable, warm and luxurious. The Guest areas are superbly furnished and equipped, a huge fireplace makes for a cosy evening with your party. There is a games and pool room and an outdoor hot tub. Nick’s partner Beth, who I understand designed the interiors, has an eye for detail and luxury which is truly outstanding. There is a real wow factor as you enter and I have to mention the heated boot room with a range of warming rods to dry each boot - real detail.
On the ski front, it’s all made very easy, passes and equipment hire can be pre-arranged and dealt with at the Chalet when you arrive so no queuing or time wasted in town. Nick has extensive knowledge of the area and can recommend suitable locations for all standards.
Nick and Beth have clearly forged close relationships with local businesses and services including private tuition ensuring we received a well rounded top notch experience wherever we went.
It seems that nothing has been left to chance and I can thoroughly recommend this Chalet and will definitely return.
