“Superb Food, great views, delightful staff & comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2012

I had a wonderful week at the Alikats Chalet. The staff couldn't be friendlier or the rooms more comfortable, and the views are breathtaking. It's also great fun to sit down to a lovely long table at night with other guests and share remarkable 5 star meals as well as our experiences skiing, snow shoeing, and snowboarding. There's a large, comfortable sauna as well as a great hot tub with a beautiful view that one can sit in whilst enjoying an ice cold beer or glass of wine or champagne! There's also a lovely fire always lit in the large common room where you can read, have a cup o tea, or simply stare out the windows. The skiing and snowboarding as well as snowshoeing with Indy were all terrific fun. And for those who aren't too into the winter sports, there's a beautiful lake nearby where one can go for a long walk knowing they'll come back to a roaring fire and a cup of or drink of whatever they wish! There's also a dog, Murray, who welcomes everyone and is one of the loveliest border collies I've ever met! The village is a short ride away and I'd recommend this place to anyone hoping to have a wonderful holiday.

That title is no lie. Everything about this place is amazing and it's all the little extras as well as the genuinely great chalet and team that run it that make the difference. There was nothing better than getting picked up (yup, the Alikats team picked us up from the après bar every day!) and them on the short ride back having to choose between sitting in front of a roaring open fire with a cuppa and a cake stroking Murray the resident dog or grabbing some alcohol and heading to the hot tub and admiring the views. Then I need to mention the food! I've eaten at a lot of high end restaurants in London and around the world and the grub at Ferme a Jules can easily revel these places. It's a foodies heaven! Each night Kathryn prepared us an amazing 4 course dinner and it was genuinely the highlight of the day! The final thing to say about his place is that the team were amazing. They made us feel at home from day 1 and nothing was too much for them. I'll be going back to Ferme a Jules for many years coming!

Luxurious ski accomodation complete with hot tub, roaring fire and delicious food cooked and served by the lovely chalet staff.
Great fun for couples, family, friends with something for everyone (including board games for low snow days).
The chalet has a great atmosphere and dinner with the other guests was very sociable with potential to turn into a mini-house party if desired!

The only potential downside is that it is a small ride away from the slopes and the town centre. The staff were very accomodating in running shuttle buses on demand to and from the local lift, but any evening activities in the town will require a taxi ride.

All in all though a great place to stay and I would recommend.

The last week of the season so we were a little worried about lack of snow....no need, the best snowfall of the season!!!
Alikats chalet is everything you want and need for a luxury week on the slopes. Beautiful chalet, clean, spacious and stunning views (especially from the hot tub!).
The Alikats team were amazing: food was 5star and Kat catered to everyone's specific dietary needs. The team were on hand to help whenever needed and nothing was too much trouble.

Can't recommend this chalet enough, such a special week that will be difficult to beat- so I'm not going to bother trying, I've already booked again for next year!

Hi Vix,
Thanks for such a great review - we really appreciate it! What an amazing week of snow hey? Non-stop powder with no-one else around to disturb the fresh lines. Brilliant!

See you again next year

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!

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.
