“A superb Chalet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

It was all we wanted and more. A chalet where we could stay all day if we didn't fancy skiing. Amazing food, beutifully decorated and comfortable. Serving supper for the kids at a time we wanted and then dinner for everyone else was great. Scott and Lucy were great hosts and nothing was too much for them.

In over 10 years of chalet holidays in the Alps, this has to have been the best. The chalet was beautiful - 3 good sized bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, very comfortable beds and lovely bedding (so often a let down in "luxury" chalets). The living space had lovely views, fantastic light and spacious and comfortable sitting area with delightful wood stove. As others have said, Lucy and Scott were superb. Scott's cooking was divine, really special without being overfacing, complemented by a good selection of wines. Lucy definitely had the knack of looking after us in a way that felt very caring, thoughtful and natural, without being in any way intrusive. The standard of cleanliness in the chalet was second to none. I must also mention Sandy, our driver, who was very much part of the team and looked after us to the same very high standards. The driver service definitely meant that we enjoyed all the advantages of a position a little out of and above St Martin with none of the disadvantages of having to find our own way to lifts, bars etc. I can not think of anything which could have been done better.

Finishing up a great stay at the Lodge and I can't recommend it more highly. Everything has been of the highest standards. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed. A definitely highlight he been our hosts Scott and Lucy. I'm super impressed with them both and they made our stay better than we could have ever imagined. Scott is a very talented chef with a bright future ahead of him and Lucy makes sure everything is running smoothly. I'm sure she even has a hand in the delicious food we were being served. I wish them the very best for their futures.

Helen has done an amazing job bringing the lodge and service together. We will definitely be back.

Thanks.

We recently stumbled across the Chamois through oxford ski company and what a stumble. It was an amazing experience from the start. The lodge is a great find. Helen the owner couldn't do enough to help you. But what made it extra special was the staff. Scott the chef......is second to none. The food is out of this world. Lucy has been a tremendous host. And sandy has been the ultimate driver etc. but it does have to be said that Scott and his cooking has made this trip something special. Him and Lucy are a true find! Thanks guys for an amazing trip. What do we do Monday night for dinner....it will never be the same

After 16 years of Chalet holidays, our stay at Chamois Lodge is definitely the best. The chalet is beautifully furnished and immaculately clean. The service that Helen, Chris and the team offer is second to none. Scott the chef was amazing, the food was delicious in perfectly sized portions, we all managed all 6 courses each night! plus the wonderful carefully selected wine. Lucy, the chalet hostess was wonderful too. Sandy our driver loaded our skis onto the car each morning while we ate breakfast, then put them away at night while we ate the delicious cake Scott had baked for our return from the slopes. All in all, the Alpine Club really do go out of their way to ensure you have a stress free, luxury holiday, I can not recommend them enough.

We returned to the Alpine Club this year, having had such a fantastic stay last year. This time we stayed in their new chalet, Chamois Lodge, which was even more luxurious than the Chalet Abode we stayed in previously. Helen, the owner, has great taste and the decor is sumptuous and cosy. Her motto of "never having to carry your skis" was true; we were helped every day by our driver, Sandy who was at our beck and call and delivered us and our skis right to the lift. He was always waiting for us when we'd done our last run of the day. We were well fed by our chef, Scott and looked after superbly by our hostess Lucy. The food was incredible - top restaurant standard with perfect sized portions. I can't recommend the Alpine Club enough - great skiing too with tonnes of snow!

We have stayed with The Alpine Club every year since 2004 and this year we stayed at Chamois Lodge which is new for 2013.
Owners Helen & Chris know a thing or two about what constitutes a beautiful holiday experience. The lodge is cosy, comfortable and chic where we wanted for nothing. Their staff are well selected and offer a very high standard of customer service. Chalet hostess Lucy and chef Scott looked after us so well - the food was delicious with a specially selected wine to go with each course. Sandy our driver who was available every day to take and collect us from the lifts and the village was a a delight - nothing was too much trouble even helping us with the morning struggle into our ski boots!! This is what you will get from The Alpine Club - they go that extra mile.

Room Tip: We think the best room is room 1 - fantastic views.
