We have visited Lizzy and Paul a few times now and they make us feel very welcome, will sort out as much as they possibly can for you to make your trip enjoyable.
Paul arranges our off piste days with a guide and they get better each year.
And then you can wind down in the hot tub and sauna.
Food is amazing and plenty of wine to go with it.
Look forward to revisiting.
We stayed for a week for a family holiday in December and were just spoilt from start to finish. Amazing hosts catering for everyones needs, with a great team around them. The chalet is immaculate and very beautifully designed in a stunning location. Great food, great wine and a wonderful time! We will be back :)
A great week of skiing and a magical experience.
The hosts, Lizzy and Paul were brilliantly helpful and wonderfully genuine. The lodge was fantastic, its clever layout meant that we could be social and snug at the same time. The food was top notch. The staff were brilliant and our driver was so good that the kids asked to bring him home with us. Nothing was too much for these guys. It was truly an unforgettable trip.
Black Rock Ski Lodge is located next to the pistes in Les Houches, and is in reality a ski in/out destination in the Chamonix Valley, a rarity in itself, but also a well organised and smartly run operation that offers transport from the door by the Lodge's own vehicles. The whole operation runs smoothly, like a swan gliding against a fast running stream it appears effortless, but under the surface a powerful pair of limbs (in this case the owners Paul and Liz) propel the body forward.
The decor is Alpine-chic without unnecessary glitz, the staff are helpful, competent and happy to work there, and the ambience is what you think of when you imagine a classic scene of snow falling lightly outside, a welcoming drink in front of a log fire and interesting fellow guests. All in all, although a short stay, it felt like a place to which I would return in a heartbeat.
The lodge is a simply wonderful setting to enjoy the beauty of the mountains and relax with family. The awesome chalet design, with multi-level living spaces, allows for large gatherings or smaller groups to hang out. The rooms are nicely appointed, comfortable and cozy. However, what made our week amazing with the attention of Lizzie, Naoise, the outstanding food prepared by Jack, and Angus driving us all over the valley. Lizzie worked with us to coordinate 14 people going in different directions, sightseeing, skiing, snowshoeing, shopping. Quite honestly, we could not have asked for a more perfect week in the French Alps for Christmas. Thanks for arranging the performance and Christmas sing-along with Eleanor - that was so special. Our experience surpassed all of our expectations and we would recommend BlackRock Lodge without hesitation. Thank you again to Lizzie and team for an unforgettable family holiday.
We visited BlackRock this December with the family to celebrate a 40th. Wow what a great time we had. Liz and Beej were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble including Beej helping out putting on snow chains at 1am whilst Lizzy warmed up the spaghetti Bolognese and then being up again first thing to get us fitted for our skis. A fantastic chalet, fantastic food and drink, fantastic hosts and team working for them. Will definitely be back!
This Chalet is excellent, we visited as a large extended family just prior to Christmas. Lizzy and Paul were excellent hosts, their support team made the holiday work very well. All our needs were catered for. We particularly like the way the whole team made our family feel welcome - a wonderful start to the 2017 Christmas holidays. Also skiing back to the Chalet's back door at the end of a days skiing was great fun, with Paul leading us. We will definitely be back to see how much Chloe (the youngest host - aged 3) has surpassed our skiing ability!
