I go skiing each year and have stayed in all sorts of accommodation (hotels, apartments, catered chalets…) but can honestly say our stay at AliKats has been by far the best and I’d highly recommend it to anyone.

The chalet - with its big open fireplace, comfy sofas, sauna and hot-tub - is just the sort of place you want to stagger back to after a good day’s skiing! The food is of an exceptional standard; easily the best I’ve experienced in a catered chalet (and most restaurants for that matter!) and the wine is great too… and very plentiful.

Kathryn, Al and the team are outstanding and go above-and-beyond to make you feel welcome and sort everything out for you (lift passes, ski hire, transfers, lifts to and from the slopes…) – nothing is too much bother for them. Thanks AliKats for a brilliant ski holiday!

Hi Adrien,
Thanks for your kind words - we really enjoyed having you to stay. And what an amazing week it was - mid April, fresh powder every day and no-one else on the slopes! Brilliant!

See you next year,

Al & Kat

Have stayed in around 15 catered chalets spanning over some years but this is by far the best. Excellent food, very warm, spacious and relaxing. Hot tub has great views down the valley, with the sauna and bar nearby. Kat,Al and the team are great hosts and fell like part of group as apposed to members of staff. Thank you so much for a great holiday, we will be back!

Room Tip: We saw lots of the rooms and to be honest they are all excellent.

This was our first skiing holiday where we have stayed in a 5* catered chalet, having previously always stayed in typically 4* hotels. We joined freinds there and thoroughly enjoyed our week at Alikats during the first week of April 2012. We received a very warm welcome from the entire Alikats team , who were all very professional and accommodating and made us feel very much at home, also the evening meals were fantastic.
The hot tub was a shear delight at the end of a long days skiing, a real relief for aching muscles and one very sore ankle!!
We would certainly recommend Alikats Mountain Holidays at Ferme a Jules to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing and friendly base for their holiday, and who also enjoy good food.
We would certainly go to the same venue again, though principally because the Alikats team made it all work so well.

Many thanks to Al, Kat and all the team,


Chris & Linda Richards

Room Tip: Only some rooms jave balcony's so probably best stipulate if you require one when booking.

Hi Chris & Linda,
Thanks for your review, so glad you enjoyed your stay. We really enjoyed getting to know you and your stories about the '3 pound club' still make us laugh now! Hope the ankle gets better soon...

My pal and I had a fantastic week staying in this delightful 5 star catered chalet in early March2012
The chalet was a great base - with excellent staff, food and company - so it was impossible not to be impressed.
Thanks to you all for making this a ski holiday to remember.
I thought at my advancing years and with slightly dodgy knees it could well have been my final ski holiday but it was so top notch that I am determined to ski again next year!
But you must promise to help me on with my ski boots !!
Thanks again and good luck in the future.
2 rooms needed next March!

Hi Neill,
Thanks for your fab review. Those dodgy old knees have still got left in them yet I'm sure - looking forward to seeing them and you next year!

WOW... that was our first impression when we originally arrived for a long weekend at New Year 2011. Could not believe the wonderfully cosy atmosphere and friendly warm welcome. Felt like home but 5*.
So good we went back! Enjoyed an amazing week in Feb 2012 with everything you could ask for. Fantastic organisation to get to and from the ski lifts, the most amazing michelin style food ever (4 courses every night except 1.....wow...Kat should really own a dozen restaurants) brilliant staff who are friendly and helpful, where nothing is too much.
And who could complain about the hot tub and copius amounts of wine!!!
I am definitely more picky and sensitive than most and this is probably the first accomodation I have ever stayed where I didnt fill up the 'suggestions' form with 'hints'. Attention to detail is key for Al & Kat, from the specifically sourced bathroom products to the inventive meals catering to every and I do mean EVERY diet requirements

Will be back at the first sign of snow in Dec 2012!
Brilliant xx

Room Tip: Some rooms have balconies others dont, smokers should ask for rooms with outside access as this is possible for some rooms. People travelling with younger kids can have bunk beds in the same room making family holidays a breeze.
