Guest reviews:

Wonderful chalet in the Alps

"We spent the first week in January at this chalet.

We are a family of 2 adults and 3 children (10,8,4). The rooms were lovely, great big bathrooms, v warm and comfortable. The common areas were comfortable and relaxing with a lovely fire each evening.
The food was excellent. The children enjoyed their supper each evening and we enjoyed meeting the other guests over a delicious dinner each evening hosted by Christine.

Christine could not have been more helpful, organising skis, ski passes and lessons with only 24 hours notice (we literally booked and travelled 24 hours later!). She brought us to the medical clinic when are daughter became unwell and went out of her way to help us organising taxis and transfers etc which we hugely appreciated.

We highly recommend and will definitely return."

Relax and Enjoy

"We have just spent Christmas at this spacious chalet, where from the time you are collected from the Airport to the time of your return you can relax and enjoy all this complete holiday offers. Everything is arranged for you with minimal input from the traveller, all you need do is arrive for the scrumptious meals with free flowing wine and decide what time you would like to be driven to and from the ski lifts. Drinks and Canapés are served each evening in front of the fire where on Christmas Eve we watched the arrival of Father Christmas's torch light descent down the mountain. Christine and her team will ensure you have a great time whether skiing or enjoying the mountains from the charming local villages, for those intent on touring every inch of the PDS ski area guide Patrick is a must! The chalet is in the village and easy walks are on your door steep, Max the well behaved dog is sometimes available for walks. If you enjoy chalet ski holidays with like minded guests do give La Ferme du Chateau a try, but please leave a space for us, we will return." jaynefg 06 Jan 13
