My friends and I have just returned from a wonderful stay at Chalet Maison Caramel, Landry. The chalet is beautiful - a rustic old building beautifully modernized to a very high standard providing luxury accommodation for all. We (four friends) stayed full board for 7 nights and had a great stay.
The accommodation is very spacious spread over several floors; we had rooms two rooms in the penthouse section which where both great sizes and really well presented. One with a role top bath, shower room, annex with extra spaces for kids (if you need it) and both had large balconies where we enjoyed a cold beer, home made cake and watched the sun set everyday.
The living areas are really spacious, modern and contemporary. They offer really comfortable areas to chill out and enjoy a drink or two (!!) as we did on more than one occassion.
The chalet hosts Sam & Jerry, Jon & Dan where fantastic. Really helpful, flexible with our lifts to the ski runs, transport and all our needs. Nothing was too much effort at all. Really friendly and not at all intrusive - perfect balance of welcoming & professionalism. They offered advice on routes and runs, bars and restaurants and then laughed and shared in our tales from the slopes everyday.
Sam & Dan shared the cooking and both where fantastic, really varied menu every night providing an alternative when a member of the group had a different preference. The food was familiar but often with a french twist which was great and i had way too many beautiful puddings! But hats off to Sam especially whose afternoon cakes and cookies have earnt a very special place in my husbands heart for ever (even taking requests and producing the best lemon drizzle cake we have ever had!)
Whilst i know we where fortunate because the chalet was quiet so perhaps our hosts where able to spoil us a bit more ... I would not hesitate to recommend Chalet Maison Caramel. The food, accommodation and hosts where fantastic. And yes it is a short drive to the slopes but the beautiful location and flexible shuttle service that our hosts offered meant this was not a problem at all. In fact it added to the options of locations to start from each day.
Any complaints ... no i cant think off one. Thanks to all for a fantastic week (now i just need a short break to recover!!)
