"Hi Biff and Juliet

Just a quick note to say many thanks to you both for making our stay so enjoyable. We all had a great time, lots of skiing, laughs and plenty of delicious food and drink.

Everything worked very smoothly with ski hire and transfers etc so many thanks for all your preparation and organisation.

Hope the rest of the season goes well.

"Hi Biff and Juliet,

Home now safe and sound.

I would like to thank you both for making Amy and I feel so welcome in the chalet. We truly had a fantastic week, the company, food, weather etc was amazing. The only downside was Biff introducing us to Ski Tracks!!!! ... Amy is now ‘on it’ to beat my speed whilst she is in Avoriaz! Cheers Biff haha

We would love to return next year.. I’ll keep in touch.

Thanks again, have a great summer.

Take care

Claire & Amy"

"Just got back from another fantastic winter break with snow situations. This was my third experience staying with Biff and Juliet and they really looked after us again. The chalet was very nice and felt very spacious and the food was delicious as always. Biff and Juliet gave us a good tour of the ski area as well as delivering us to and from the slopes. They provided us with plenty of information before our visit and arranged airport transfers, ski school and booking info for hire equipment. We’re Very much looking forward to our fourth winter holiday with them." 13 Apr 19
