I have never written a review/feedback on any website before but having stayed in many chalets over the years this one is worth a special mention.
Chalets triumph on the basis of a few key ingredients; beautiful chalet, prime location, good food & wine and good chalet hosts. Alikats have managed to tick all the boxes, and from looking at the reviews pretty consistently from opening in December.
Kat & Al are obviously very passionate about their new business venture. Despite feeling under the weather and being 6 months pregnant Kat worked up a 4 course meal worthy of a restaurant every evening with a grin on her face. Al co-ordinated ski hire/ passes for all 17 of us and took time out of his weekend to take us out skiing for the day.
The chalet is a gem with one of the largest living areas I have ever seen, allowing everyone to sit around the fire in evening eating cheese and drinking wine.
Tucked away in Montriond some would be worried about being so far from Morzine but despair not. With a lift to the mountain every day and a super quick bubble up to Ardent you are in the middle of the best ski area without the crazy lift queues. So from being up at 830 we could be at the top of the hill by 0930!! If you want to venture into Morzine a cab for 8 is about 25E. Cheap even by english standards!
Finally and by no means least a big thanks to Amelia, Ben, Colleen & Simon for whom nothing was too much trouble. These guys were key in the day to day running of the chalet & getting us up and down the mountain which with 17 individuals is hard to co-ordinate. Though at times they must have felt like they were herding cats they did it with a smile on their faces. Thanks for a great holiday guys! All the best Laura xx
For those out there thinking of booking a chalet for 2012/3 look no further!
