"A good find! This is a pleasant chalet situated in Reberty village and just a stones throw from a blue piste [Boyes] which leads down to two of the main lifts - fast chair and telecabine - which whisk you up the mountain. The chalet is arranged over 4 floors with sauna,hot tub and ski/boot room at ground floor, dining room plus large sitting area and bedrooms on the 1st floor and then bedrooms on the upper floors.
Flocon des Neige is almost ski in/out but as the walk to the piste is short and almost flat it is not a problem.
Views from the large picture windows in the dining-seating area are good and look out over the adjoining pistes and mountains. There are plenty of comfy sofas in the sitting area where aperitifs and canapes are served before dinner each evening.
All the food we had was of excellent quality and generally sourced locally by the in-house chef. The staff were efficient and quietly attentive to any need you may have or even think you have!
All the rooms are en-suite and hot water is plentiful [at any time of the day]
The temperature in the chalet was always just right and for light sleepers there is no noise to disturb you.
All in all a lovely week for our party of 7. March 11th 2014 Tripadvisor"

"What can we say, again a brilliant stay with delicious food and great company. Introduced some new friends to this lovely chalet this year and they all loved it. Snow was excellent, the sun really was Powdernshine...Slopes are a minutes walk away and the local restaurants serve very tasty food at reasonable prices.....if you have never tried a chalet holiday or even if you have experienced many others, this one a definite must do, thanks again Francesca.

"“Fantastic chalet, top class food, amazing location and ski in ski out!” review in Trip Advisor 1 October 2013

We stayed at Flocon des Neiges last December and were more than impressed at the chalet. Reberty 2000 is a ski in ski out village half way down one of the slopes - which means that at the end of a hard day's skiing, there is no lugging of skis around a resort.

The food is first rate and exceptionally tasty- better than all other catered chalets at which we have stayed. Fran and Steve are superb hosts and always have excellent suggestions - as well as offering ski guiding to some of the lesser known slopes.

This is a fantastic location from which to explore the entire ski area and at 2000m, the snow was fabulous, even at the start of the season.

We found that the rooms were of a good size and the decor stylish. The honesty bar is a wonderful idea and the wireless is a handy bonus.

We will definitely be going back. Many thanks for the great skiing!

""Location, Location, Location" review in Trip Advisor 5 October 2013

I've stayed in Reberty a few times over the years but this was my first time at Flocon des Neiges. The location on piste is a great attraction. Just walk a few yards and clip in for a nice little cruise to the first lift. You can link in to VT - Meribel - Courchevel when the conditions allow. The chalet is compact but plenty big enough - the staff were well informed on conditions and gave good sound advice. Food was top notch and plenty of it and we even had an Olympic gold medallist (Greg Rutherford) one night for dinner:-) Francesca and Steve make sure you have everything you need and when the time is right I would definitely return for another visit.

""Flocon des Neiges - Food to die for" Trip Advisor 5 October 2013

Flocon des Neiges is a fantastic chalet expertly run by Fran and the team. As all of the other reviews say - the food is magnificent and Fran and her team are very welcoming and could not do enough to make sure that we had a great holiday. It's very easy to relax in this chalet and the attention to detail is amazing. We will be going again."

"“Wonderful chalet, delicious food,great staff,super position.....excellent!”
We travelled with our eight year old and had an excellent week in this super chalet - we had an inter connecting room which was great and the chalet location made going to ski school simple, 30m to the piste and 15m to the ski school, ridiculously easy! The food was delicious, the wine flowed and everything went smoothly - our son had beautifully prepared high tea every day, which followed on well from the lovely cakes that greeted us after skiing! The chalet was not full so there was plenty of room to lounge around on the sofas. A great spot for skiing and relaxing with fantastic views of the mountains."

"Dream food, dream location. Cannot recommend this chalet enough. The food, as doubtless numerous reviewers have stated, is of an exceptionally high quality, coupled with efficient but relaxed service. The nightly aperitifs and hors d'ouevres tell you everything you need to know about this place. A touch above." 08 Aug 11

"This is a great catered Chalet run by a very friendly couple, Francesca and Steve, who just know how a great ski holiday should be. They were incredibly helpful even before we arrived. The Chalet is incredibly comfortable and clean with a really relaxed atmosphere and we were really well looked after. The rooms are really comfortable and everything is of a good quality. Francesca's cooking is absolutely fantastic and we always really looked forward to meal times. Wine was great as well. The chalet location in Reberty is fantastic. Ski in/ski out and a 1 minute walk away from the fantastic La Ferme restaurant/bar. A must for Francesca and Steve's night off. We really couldn't have wished for anything more on our holiday." 08 Aug 11

AMAZING food, great wines and fantastic hosts....

""We too have just returned from this fantastic Chalet and we could not have asked for anything more from our holiday....fantastic location, beautiful and well looked after bedrooms, AMAZING food, great wines and fantastic hosts who made you feel very much like house guests rather than paying customers. And to top it al...l FRESH snow and in Kevens words "one of the best powder days ever - thanks to Steve for his knowledge of where to find the best runs of the day"

We will definitely be back and will not hesitate to recommend you to all our friends.

Best of luck with everything you do in the future - You WILL realise your dreams and I'm sure we will see you winning awards for best Chalet very soon.

Hope you both have a great Christmas and New Year.

Powder n Shine - fully recommend 5 Michelin stars for food & top class hospitality...

""It was amazing - parsnip mash to die for - everything was devine, as indeed was all the food over the last 2 weeks - feel I've gained about 10lbs!!! Guess I'll be working out even harder for a few weeks.

Powder n Shine - fully recommend 5 Michelin stars for food & top class hospitality, can't fault anything. Fran & Steve work so very... hard in everything they do & still somehow find time to spend socialising with their guests. Fantastic xx"

Simply the best I have ever experienced in any chalet in over 15 years in the Alps.

""I have just returned from Reberty 2000 in the 3 Valleys, and stayed at a real find.

Chalet Flocon des Neiges is run by Francesca and Stephen who started their company
Powder N Shine last year. The chalet is comfortable with quality linen and furnishings, enough space to hang everything and a level of service and attention hard to find.

But the real secret is the food. Simply the best I have ever experienced in any chalet in over 15 years in the Alps. Original, delicious and served with a smile and enthusiasm.

Add' ski in, ski out' at 2000 metres and sensible prices and you won't go anywhere else.
But please don't tell anyone!!"

Sunny fun times in the snow

"After returning from a long weekend in Reberty it's been both relaxing and adventurous! The weather was what makes skiing perfect - clear blue skies and bright sunshine as well as a great amount of snow. Staying with Fran & Steve was great and my friends and I can't wait to come back next season to experience a bit of Powder and Shine - something to look forward to!

Powder N Shine

"I recently had the pleasure of spending a week snowboarding in Reberty, being hosted by Steve and Francesca. Not only was the weather and snow amazing but myself and my 2 other friends received some fantastic hospitality. If we had any problems Steve and Francesca were more than happy to help, and with my French being limited this was very handy.
As for the food - well if I could take Francesca back with me then I would, it was some the finest meals I have ever had along with some superb local wines to cap it all off.
I would definatly recommend Powder N Shine since their attention to detail in second to none.
