"Hi Ralph

Just wanted to drop you a email to thank you for all your help in organising the above holiday and stay at Chalet Baikal 1. The pick-up / return to Geneva worked like clockwork and thank you for arranging for Taylor & I to have separate rooms.

We had a fantastic time at the Chalet with the help of Taylor, Shay & Karina who worked extremely hard to provide a clean chalet, with room bins being emptied every day! Every morning we had delicious cooked breakfast, fantastic cake and tea after a hard days skiing in the afternoon, with phenomenal three course evening meals of a standard that was much higher than we had been expecting. So please pass on our thanks to the Chalet Staff. These guys really went then whole nine yards and were a real credit to the Chalet, I hope you can keep them for next year as they were a real game changer and we will definitely spread the word for the remainder of the Season and hopefully next.

Thanks once again and hope to see you again."

"Hi Ralph
I am finally starting to recover from a fantastic holiday in La Tania, staying in your chalet. Still very tired but a few more early nights and I should have caught up!!

I just wanted to drop you an email to say what a fantastic time we had. Having a little one in tow I was really apprehensive about staying in a chalet, especially as we where sharing with people we did not know. However we could not have been happier with the way we where greeted and treated throughout our stay. We got on so well with the other guests and by the end of the week felt like one big family. I can only suggest that this was down to the excellent service that we had from Taylor, Corrine and Shay. They really did look after us so well, they are so friendly and kind, the food was excellent and anything we needed they where able to help us with. They where so lovely with Lottie and she was really settled around them. Their manor and attitude towards looking after us was so impressive and really did make our holiday what it was. I have stayed in chalets before where the staff do not really have anything to say and are not animated at all, but Taylor, Corrine and Shay where so personable and interested in getting to know us all. They are a credit to your company and I only hope we get to stay in a chalet with them as hosts again."

"Ralph and the team at Chalet Baikal could not have worked harder to make our week-long trip a resounding success. The chalet itself is very comfortable and the outdoor hot-tubs are particularly special. The food (including the great cakes) prepared by the very friendly chalet hosts was exactly what was needed after a long day’s skiing. In short, nothing was too much trouble for Ralph or his team and I would highly recommend the chalet and the Freeride Republic to anyone looking for a great ski holiday." 31 May 15

"Hi Ralph and staff at Baikal Chalet. .

I just wanted to send you an email to tell you how very impressed we all were with the excellent service we received from both yourself and the chalet staff. Any requests that we made were dealt with efficiently and with no problem..The chalet was always kept clean and tidy and the food was outstanding. For myself I would like to say from the initial enquiry to the end of the holiday I received first class communication and service and would highly recommend Freeride Republic to anyone who was looking for a chalet holiday within the 3 Valleys. In fact I have already passed your details on to friends who are looking to book for next season. I'm sure we will be in contact for booking next season too. Thank you again."

"Hi Ralph.

Thank you for an amazing half term week staying at Chalet Baikal 1 and 2. This was our 7th year in La Tania and our first with The Freeride Republic and what a difference it was! Easily the best week we have had in terms of chalet, staff, food...everything! A huge thank you to Bob, Emma and Joanne for looking after all 18 of us so well...and especially for handling our various dietary needs with such ease and for feeding Phoebe so well all week! It was lovely for me to be able to take a step back and let someone else make lovely meals for her each day...which she ate! The layout of the chalet was great for our large group of 4 families and the use of one chalet as the kids zone was genius...leaving the adults to drink and chat in the other. Similarly, having two hot tubs was great as we could turf the kids into one leaving us free to enjoy a soak undisturbed! The whole Freeride Republic operation runs very smoothly and provided a welcome change from other companies we have used before. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Ralph and his staff alike. Overall, our best ski trip yet and we are looking forward to returning next year!"

"Dear Ralph,

I just wanted to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our week in La Tania. The chalet staff were fantastic and the food excellent especially considering our varying dietary requirements. The staff never once complained and were very helpful and flexible. Our family has been coming to La Tania for eight consecutive years now and we have stayed with four different companies - I very much enjoyed the more relaxed environment with your company - the staff were most unobtrusive, whilst still being very much on hand should we need them and very professional. We will hopefully be coming to La Tania with your company again, so see you then and well done again for a formulae that works. Best wishes"

"Hi Ralph,

Following our stay at Baikal 1, we wanted to thank the team- Emma, Bob and Jo, for making it a fantastic week. All the food they cooked was absolutely delicious. I was especially impressed that they even managed to turn pears into a scrummy desert (and that's saying something as I don't normally like pears!) and the three year old child in our party is usually super fussy but ate and enjoyed everything they made (a feat his parents seem unable to replicate). We can't praise them all enough, they were great company and nothing was too much trouble- having great hosts really makes a difference. We must also thank the lovely Glyn for his super efficient transfers, great conversation, tips and local knowledge. The chalet itself was lovely and cosy in a great location. A great week- many thanks."

"Hi Ralph,

Just want to drop you a note on our recent ski trip to La Tania in Chalet Baikal so you can post on your website. Our party of 16 including 10 children, all had a fantastic time in Chalet Baikal over the New Year break, which was made even more enjoyable by the service we received for the week. Both Chalets were really well maintained and the layout worked out well for us. Bob, Emma & Joanne were absolutely top class hosts, they were very professional friendly and responsive…we just couldn’t say more about them. Their cooking was superb and they were able to deal with special requests at the drop of hat. Their overall service really made our week so enjoyable. We are already planning our trip for 2015 and Chalet Baikal will be on top of our list. Hope you have a great season."

"Ralph,

Just a brief email to thank you and your team for looking after us last week and arranging ski passes and equipment for us.

Brad and Suzie catered for us very well in the chalet and were very accommodating to our individual requirements and Glyn helped to make a long airport journey amusing.

I am now rather depressed to be back in work and am already planning for next year's trip.
