“Big thumbs up to Ferme a Jules!”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

Just returned from a week-long stay at Ferme a Jules and cannot speak highly enough of the place. First up, the food rocks, after a couple of days you'll start to mistake the lounge for a Michelin-starred restaurant. Second, the managers (Al and Kat who are ace) have a very friendly sheep dog puppy that you will become good friends with and possibly think up ways of sneaking him into your suitcase to take home with you. Thirdly, the staff are all great, attentive but also very friendly, its like you're living with your friends (but they have to clean up your mess which aint a bad deal right!) - big thanks to Amelia, Colleen, Ben and Simon for making us feel so at home. Fourth, if you're not already familiar with it you are in a fantastic ski resort, expansive enough that you'll not come close to boredom in a week. Would like to comment on the village apres scene but unfortunately i barely left the chalet cos it was so nice! Fifth, the hot-tub! All in all the perfect ski chalet.

Had a week at Alikats and it was a wonderfully relaxing visit, well apart from the highly exhausting snowboarding. The Chalet ticks many boxes: excellent food, hot tub, sauna, log fire and comfort. However the best thing was the people at the chalet who made the holiday seem more like staying with friends and family. Very well organised, nothing too much trouble and even a daft dog to play with. I'd like to say thanks to Al, Kat (chef supremo), Ben, Amelia, Colleen and Simon for making our stay so good; the team have a good chemistry and the chalet a warm atmosphere, missing it already. Would go back then with no hesitation.

We stayed for 5 nights and cannot recommend this place highly enough. Really friendly staff, delicious food and wine, comfortable rooms - fantastic chalet and completely hassle-free!

Brilliant!!!

We had an amazing eight-day holiday with AliKats to ring in the New Year. I have never eaten so well on ANY holiday - the food was simply superb - as was the service and attention to detail. You will certainly be in good hands if you choose to stay here - everything from the airport transfers to the home-fitting / delivery of skis and lift passes was organised seamlessly. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts - even the organising of random afternoon lifts to the telecabin (ski lift) due to sore heads! In addition to the ridiculously vast ski area, we also enjoyed the sauna, hot tub and lounging around in front of the log fire with various board games - not to mention playing with Murray (their gorgeous dog who often visited the chalet). In short, I would highly recommend Alikats!

Room Tip: All the rooms I saw were lovely. However, if you like to lie in, ask for a room near the rear of the...

We stayed at the chalet for a couple days in January 2012 with a group of 16 and had a fabulous stay. I think it is fair to say that this is the unanimous opion of all 16! Everything was organised in great detail, including all the logistics, like transport, rental skis, ski passes etc. Staff was very friendly helpful and professional. Food was beyond anything you would expect from a catered chalet, even for those with high expectations. Alikats really know their business. Highly recommended!

I stayed here with a group of friends over New Year and had an awesome time. The chalet and staff were both excellent and definitely helped make our holiday! The food can't be rated highly enough, certainly some of the best I have eaten on any holiday. I would definitely recommend this chalet and am sure I will be back again soon.

Took a party of 12 to AliKats for a week of ski over New Year and praise for the chalet and the team were universally sung from all 12!
Incredible amounts of food and wine included in the price - a special mention for the 7 course New Year menu and for a party with a nut allergist and fish disliker we were still very well catered for.
Bedrooms and beds all very comfy, as was rest of the chalet - the one day we were snowed in saw an epic monopoly battle take place, as well as some over competitive Wii championships across the week. The chalet was pretty full when we were there, but never felt crowded - there was always somewhere to curl up with a book, or have a chat with friends and the pre-dinner canapes meant that the mix between the different groups booked there happened pretty quickly.
The hot tub, sauna and downstairs bar space all added another level of luxury to the break, and lounging in a hot tub watching the sun set over a silent snow filled valley remains a high point for me.
Add to this incredibly accommodating staff, a very relaxed hosting attitude, and access to some amazing ski areas and you are very definitely on to a winner. By day 3 my party were all declaring that this had to be an annual event and I imagine Al, Kat & the team might have to brace themselves for another round of Mexican toasts, endless fancy dress themes and general mischief next year too..

Thank you for the review and and an even bigger thank you for organising the gang. We really glad you did because I doubt we'll have another group staying with us who have such dedication to fancy dress!

See you again next year!
