|"All 12 of us had a fantastic time. The Chalet was lovely and spacious, everything was so close it really is ski in and ski out. 2 minute walk to ski hire shop and lift pass kiosk. Apres ski literally next door at Folie Douce and was brilliant. Chalet hosts John and Ruth were friendly and helpful. Food was delicious and plenty of it."
|"John and Ruth at Chalet Poudreuse were just brilliant. Such hard workers, but always a smile and time to spare if we needed them. Ruth is a really super cook and produced some smashing food. We will definitely be booking again."
|"Fabulous experience, very well organised, chalet very comfortable and clean, staff very welcoming and friendly, amazing food and a decent coffee machine (very important). Would highly recommend all aspects."
