We have just come back from Chatel after a weeks skiing. The chalet is great! In tip top condition and a good size with plenty of space for socialising. The rooms are good and the en-suites are modern. Great power shower! The food has been fantastic and Paddy and the girls looking after us have been brilliant form the moment we got there until the day we left. Nothing is too much trouble for them and having a minibus to take us to, and collect us from, the slopes has been so easy. Couldn't have been better and we will definitely have another ski holiday there. Many thanks from all of us to all of you...

Had an amazing week for Christmas. Paddy was great, recommending ski areas along with restaurants. The Chalet was extremely comfortable, with delicious food and a constant warm reception.
