Guest reviews:

A warm and comforable welcome in a relaxing environment

"We stayed at Terrase de Verchaix for a ski-ing holiday. Louise and Philip were extremely welcoming and helpful, and the food was plentiful and excellent, from the breakfasts through to afternoon tea and cakes, and the restaurant quality evening meal. The bar is reasonably priced with a good selection.

The location is convenient for ski-ing with easy access to the ski-bus and a short trip to the lifts into the Grand Massif area The hotel has lovely views from its dining room, terracce, and south facing rooms. It is in a quiet hamlet, so not for those looking for night life.

Rooms are fairly small but comfortable, and well equipped. The ski room is excellent, warm and spacious for equipment & boots - no scrambling through a heap of skis as in many hotel ski rooms.

Hot tub is great to relax in after a days skiing - with robes provided - a nice touch.

I would certainly stay there again, nothing was too much trouble for the owners and their staff.

Another Fantastic Holiday at La Terrasse de Verchaix

"This is our third stay at the hotel and once again we had a fantastic time. Phil and Louise are constantly up-dating the hotel and it is a clean, comfortable and welcoming place to stay. Louise's meals are great and plentiful. The hot tub is always a welcome sight after a days ski-ing. We shall certainly go back next year.

Our second stay and it was as good, if not better than our first stay last year

"We had such a great long weekend skiing last year that we rebooked for this year. The skiing conditions were very different. The western and eastern alps have had a bad season with no appreciable snow for two and a half months. Despite this the runs higher up were very good and the skiing (as long as you stayed high) were excellent. Within 30 mins (10min drive, 10min telecabine ride, 10min six man chair) you can be at 2200m and skiing into Flaine (highest point 2500m)Phil and Louise were the perfect hosts again. They really care about making your stay the best. The rooms are clean and perfectly presented with amazing views across the valley. The food, prepared by Louise, was amazing. Different cooked breakfast each morning with fresh pastries, meats, cheeses, yoghurts, cereals and tea & coffee. Home made cake when you come off the slopes and three course evening meal that is of a very high standard. The hot tub looking across the valley and towards the ski slopes slopes of Morillon is so welcome after a hard days skiing. Phil will even bring you drinks if you ask. Phil does have a number of rules for using the hot tub but these are there to make the experience lovely for all the guests. We will most certainly return." La Terrasse 07 May 11
