""We have been skiing for over 30 years, the food was the best we have ever hadn't any chalet! The staff are great, we were picked up and dropped off at any lift we wanted. Big thanks to Matt, Ben, Katherine, Pete and Ruth for a great time!"" 26 Jul 17

""Had such a wonderful time skiing here. Staff were very accomodating - nothing was too much trouble (whether it was running us to the slopes or stopping at the supermarket for some fizz)! Food and wine was absolutely incredible (definitely the best I've ever had at a ski chalet) and rooms were great. Would definitely love to come back again, special thanks to Ben, Catherine, Pete, Matt and Ruth for making it such a fun week."" 26 Jul 17

""A truly great place to stay. The chalet is very spacious with great views across the valley. Amazing food and wine and very accompdating staff. Nothing was too much trouble; as a large group we had different requirement re picking up. Staff happy to collect those who were keen for the lovely cakes and tea and go back later for those who were enjoying the apres ski in Chatel.

Everything was made easy, ski collection, storage and boot warming (essential). Really appreciated at being able to choose which lifts to be dropped at so we could make the most of the snow conditions.

Thanks to Katherine, Ben, Matt, Pete and Ruth for ensuring we had such a fantastic week and for being such good company. A great ethos of "it's YOUR holiday".""

""This is a great chalet, we had a fantastic week skiing. We started every day with a good choice for breakfast, hot food was made to order. then dropped off and picked up at the slopes. When back from the skiing a super afternoon tea was waiting, Matts scones where the best I have tasted! The food in the evening was delicious and plentiful, paired with excellent wine. Staff where very welcoming, nothing was to much trouble. Thanks for a great week."" 26 Jul 17

""Everything about this chalet exceeded all expectations. We were travelling with 2 small children and the staff at Chalet Beau Soleil made everything so easy for us. The food was exceptional with wine that complimented beautifully and the facilities were second to none with comfortable and spacious rooms. Thank you for making our holiday."" 26 Jul 17

""Thank you very much Kath, Ruth, Pete and Matt for making my one week stay at Chalet Beau Soleil so good. I was made to feel completely welcome at all times, my gluten free diet was accommodated with some fantastic dinners and Kath was always ready to dispense advice on which slopes to try next. I really enjoyed my stay, thanks again."" 26 Jul 17

""We have just returned from Chatel and what a great experience.
The owners and staff at the chalet are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble.
The service, food and accommodation are all fantastic.
This is 5* service without 5* prices.
You will find it hard to stay anywhere that ticks all the boxes as well as Beau Soleil.
Ideal for families and groups.
Many thanks for making our stay a truly memorable one !""

""A wonderful experience - champagne & nibbles welcome, brilliant food & wine throughout with super friendly and helpful hosts. Our room was huge with lovely views down the valley. Katherine organised hassle free, local ski equipment hire (good for changing boots after a day) and prompt airport transfers. Shuttle is available for runs to the lifts (approx 15mins) in the morning and pick up in evening back to chalet from ski lift or apres ski bars. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and it felt like staying with old friends rather than a ski chalet experience. This place is <2 hrs from Geneva and has convenient access to Chatel and Avoriaz for great skiing. Thank you Katherine, Ruth, Matt & Pete - we'll be back - Throughly recommended."" 26 Jul 17

""What a great trip! Catherine, Pete, Matt and Ruth - thank you for an amazing week! Hot breakfasts, cakes cakes and more cakes, home cooked dinners, couldn't have asked for more after a long day on the slopes. If you're big on beds and sleep, you won't go wrong, they were one of the most comfortable beds I've been on! Free bus's were always full so the private pick up and drop offs were a treat! That's again team!"" 26 Jul 17

""Wow, what can I say, we had a superb time. The food was wonderful and plentiful. The chalet staff were so friendly and helpful. The skiing was great too. It was so refreshing to be able to get up, have a lovely cooked breakfast and then be taken right to the ski lift of our choice in the minibus. In the evening we were picked up and brought home in time for tea and cake and a fantastic evening meal. Thanks Katherine, Matt, Pete and Ruth, you are all stars"" 26 Jul 17

""Good communications re pick up at airport - even brought us sandwiches and drink for the transfer as we were arriving late. They had picked up ski hire for us so we could hit the pistes first thing in the morning. Nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely go again!"" 26 Jul 17

""We had a wonderful stay at Chalet Beau Soleil last week (4th - 11th March 2017). Matt & Kathryn looked after us superbly. Breakfast to order, cakes when we returned from the slopes and delicious evening meals conjured up by Matt. The team were very flexible regarding timings, we were dropped to our choice of lift station each morning and picked up after some apres-ski. The Chalet itself is perfect for families and groups of skiers who prefer a quiet location. The games room meant we were never short of evening entertainment. - Rick M"" 26 Jul 17

""Spent a fabulous week here with family and friends - resort had more snow at this late stage than others nearby - weather was great and we could ski all day in the sun . The chalet was an absolute dream - large rooms , well appointed , loads of space and within an easy chauffeur driven trip to several different resorts . The hosts were so welcoming and couldn't do enough for us even taking us out on the mountain and dispensing much needed tips on our techniques. The highlight for us however was the food -actual trained chefs cooking above restaurant standard food for every meal made us feel like royalty. I cannot recommend this chalet any more highly and hope to return in the future . If you're looking for a great family location I'd definitely give them a try."" 26 Jul 17

""I've been on many ski/boarding holidays and tried all types of accommodation. I think I'd struggle to find an all round better place than Chalet Beau Soleil. Very large rooms, great location/ski resort, high end restaurant quality food, but more than anything wonderful hosts.

Couldn't give higher praise to Ben, Kathryn and Matt and the lovely kids. They made us so welcome and we felt very relaxed with our children in the chalet. We will almost certainly return.""
