"February skiing holiday 2012
We spent a week’s skiing holiday at Chalet Papillon and had an absolutely wonderful time. The chalet is situated in this little ‘hameau’ with beautiful views all around. The house itself has a real traditional feel to it – with all the luxuries of modern day. We spent many an evening in front of the cosy fireplace! We are all pretty experienced skiers and were looking for a bit of a challenge. The skiing turned out to be great with a couple of very good skiing areas and some pretty adventurous slopes at only a 20 mins drive away. We would love to come back some time in the near future!

"August 2012 - Dear Alan and Jane

We have just arrived home after our holiday in Chalet Papillon, and I wanted to write and thank you for making it so enjoyable.

The chalet was simply the best holiday property we have ever stayed in. It was perfect for our group, and we were very impressed with the quality of accommodation - particularly the new kitchen. It must have taken a lot of work to renovate the property to such a high standard. We thought it was the perfect blend of character and comfort, with lots of little touches that made us feel really welcome.

Thank you also for the tourist leaflets and multipass voucher you sent before we went, which were extremely helpful in planning our holiday.

We hadn't visited this part of the French Alps before, but it is so beautiful and there was so much to see and do that we'd love to come back - it must be stunning in the winter.

Many thanks again
