With trepidation I booked our first Christmas break away. The trip was my husband’s 60th birthday treat and I’m usually a real home person at Christmas.
The whole booking process was made amazingly easy and straightforward by Duncan, who also helped us organise ski passes and ski equipment that was all ready and waiting for us at the chalet.
Upon arrival we were met by the lovely Tom who was our driver for the week. Having the option of a driver to take the children and non-skiers down to the village was fantastic and also came in useful at the end of the day after a few beers in the village.
Hubby managed to leave his ski boots on the train and we didn’t realise our loss until the day after arrival. Duncan managed to rescue his ski boots from the station’s lost property and redelivered them to our chalet. Duncan also was fabulous in rearranging our ski groups for the children during the week.
Back to the chalet, well what can I say? Maria and Richard are absolutely amazing. The care that went into the style and quality of our food was astounding – we certainly needed to lose a few pounds upon our return. Having access to a hot tub was our icing on the cake and was made good use of.
As it was Christmas week, we were delighted to have a beautiful Christmas tree in the chalet which Father Christmas made good use of.
Skiing was great and our children loved the lessons and the ski area, with our son heading over to Les Arcs and La Plagne.
All in all, will we be back??? Absolutely!!!!
