"Hello from Canada!
We had such a wonderful time this past week - food, snow, atmosphere, comfort... all there in spades! One of our best ever ski holidays!
Andrew: Chalet One is one of the most beautiful houses we have ever stayed in, and so very cosy. We feel so lucky to have been able to enjoy the whole Sainte-Foy experience
And Will - nothing on our plate will ever taste as good, honestly the best food we've ever had.

"Hey Andy,
I had a brilliant week. What a great place - I loved the chalet, I loved the deserted slopes, and I loved Hannah & Will. I've never eaten so well in my life!
Thank you so much. I'll be back, without question.
Via email from the client who stayed 22 Feb to 27 Feb 2016."

"Hi Andy,
Thank you for the most wonderful stay in your chalet. It has been restored beautifully and encompasses the best of Alpine character, that with the combination of Will's amazing cooking and the welcome and wonderful service from both Will and Hannah - made this our family holiday par excellence. I could not fault the beautiful accommodation, and the menu was balanced beautifully across the week, and we all loved the food. Everything was thought of including snacks for ski school!! Brilliant.

"We stayed here with a group of friends over New Year and it was fantastic! The chalet is beautiful (the photos don't do it justice) and impeccably clean. The staff were amazing and looked after us so well, and the food was incredible. I had my 11 week old with me, and my friends had their 20 month old and we definitely felt that the location and set up of the chalet was great for families. We were unlucky with the snow but none of us wanted to leave. Very much missing Will's amazing three course dinners and being waited on every night!!
We will be going back for sure.

"An Incredible week with the Chalet One team. If you’re looking for a luxury experience with fantastic food, that will take you round the globe and access to not just Ste Foy but La Rosiere and Tignes/Val d’Isere then look no further. Thanks Chalet One, we will be back!

"We traveled with our 2 year old to chalet one at la masure st foy for the first week of February 2015.... Wow what a fantastic holiday we had. )))
The chalet was one of the most beautiful I have stayed in, so much character ,while having all the creature comforts you need. The chalet is ,as stated before, quite rural which i believe adds to its charm. The practicalities of getting to ski are taken care of by the amazing hosts dropping you off at the ski station of your choice.
However if you are skiing the saint foy region and didnt use the drop off service there is a 'limited' free bus that runs right outside the chalet at, 9ish, lunchtime and late afternoon for when you finish skiing for the day
I can't express in words how good this accommodation is , and more than that i can't express how much the hosts Will, Hannah and immy, made our holiday a truly memorable experience, with Will's Michelin star cooking and the exceptional service hannah and immy provided for myself , husband and little girl added to the whole experience.
My only hesitation in writing this review is I would like to keep it all to myself ))
I am looking forward to next year already ;()"

"From Tripadvisor:
just had a brilliant stay at Chalet One, looked after by Will,Hannah and Imogen,
booked the whole chalet with friends, it was so comfortable and friendly it was like being at home.
the food was excellent and varied and included roasted cod loins, lamb and guinea fowl, all expertly cooked and well presented with matched wines.
The bedrooms are individually decorated with original farm house features, warm with modern shower and bathrooms.
This is not a ski in/out location - but it's quiet rural location suited us as we did not want to ski at Sainte Foy each day- the hosts transported us to different resorts every day, La Rosiere so we could ski across to Italy, then Val D'Isere and then Les Arcs.
Our group had mixed abilities which suited Sainte Foy and Les Rosiere and the snow conditions were excellent.
Just back to work today in Plymouth and wished we had booked for two weeks
next year !

Beautiful chalet in a lovely location. We were thoroughly spoiled by our hosts Kris and Liv who did an amazing job. Hospitality and cuisine were first class, transportation to and from the slopes made our week so easy. Bedrooms were clean and so comfortable in every way.

A fabulous week in a stunning chalet. Thank you Chalet One.

"Hi Andy

I was with the party booked by Jill last week. Just to let you know that we were well looked after by Kris & Olivia they were so natrual & helpful, & Olivia's cooking was fantastic & I'm fussy. Looking at your web site you mention Val, Italy but don't say how good a location Chalet One is for Les Arcs, Tignes & La Rosiere (to ski into Italy) as this is a big plus & gives brilliant skiing opportunities.

We will reccomend Chalet One at any oportunity.

Best regards Leslie February 2014"

"Hi Andy

Just thought I would drop you a line and say what a fantastic stay we had at Chalet One, Chris and Liv were brilliant hosts, couldn't have done more to make our holiday a thoroughly enjoyable experience. please pass on our heartfelt thanks.

Chalet One has to be one of the nicest and most comfortable chalets I have stayed in over the past 30 years, you have thought of everything, even down to the chocolate basket by the front door, which helps you through the morning, I thought I would miss ski in / ski out, but with the mini bus, and the quietness of St Foy, it didn't matter at all.

Many thanks Andy, looking forward to next year!

"Dear Andy

We are on our way home in the not inconsiderable traffic (!) after a super week at your beautiful property.

We enjoyed some great skiing and beautiful weather with clear blue skies most days.

We wanted to let you know how well we were looked after by Olivia and Kris. They were truly wonderful hosts keeping the chalet spotlessly clean and serving up some exquisite meals the quality of which was on par with some of the best restaurants we have visited.

Thanks once again and funds permitting and it being free we hope to visit Chalet One again next Christmas!
Kind regards,

Clare and Rob New Year 2014"

"Dear Andy,

I hope you don't mind me emailing you - we are part of the party who stayed at Chalet One for the New Year week.

We would like to let you know how fantastic Liv and Kris were - the food was outstanding, their hospitality faultless. They were always one step ahead of knowing what we might need or want.

The chalet itself was beautiful and spotlessly presented.

The facilities were brilliant - even just the simple fact of endless hot water from our wonderful shower made a big difference.

All the little touches - bottles of water, chocolate to take up the slopes, the REN complimentary toiletries - added to our very enjoyable stay.

Liv and Kris work so well together and we were thoroughly spoilt every day from breakfast right through to afternoon tea and dinner.

We would like to congratulate you on employing such wonderful and friendly individuals.
Yours sincerely,

Neil, Claire and Hope. New Year 2014"

"Dear Andy,

We stayed at Chalet One last week (group of 7 booked in Tracy's name) and would just like to say on behalf of our group we had a wonderful time. Marc and Roby were excellent hosts in every respect and the food was absolutely fantastic. We really liked the chalet and thought it was of a very high quality. Thanks for helping make our week so special.

Review written in the guestbook by James from London

"Mark and Roby were just great - there was nothing that was too much trouble. Roby's cooking was really terrific; he should open a restaurant!
All in all one of the best week's skiing ever - it was seriously cold which meant the snow was as good as I've ever known (including Canada!). On Col Grenier it was thigh deep at the far end - unbelieveable. We also found the way down to the village of Le Monal - the top lift had been closed since the last snowfall and there was just one other set of tracks! Sunny, perfect powder, beautiful views and all on our own - it just doesn't get any better.

Chalet One was a good as ever - what a great place you have. Terence and Richard were suitably impressed by both the chalet and the skiing and will definitely be back. A week at St Foy at low season is going to become an annual thing I reckon'.

"“Hi Andy
We had a fantastic time. The chalet is beautiful, James & Georgie were perfect hosts and really made us feel at home rather than a bunch of guests. The food was brill, Georgie really is a very good cook. Kev was in seventh heaven with the afternoon cakes. The wine was great – it was really nice to taste the local wines which were delicious.
I have to say that I have fallen in love with Sainte Foy, I would have been quite happy there all week, no queues, deserted pistes and a brilliant mountain restaurant charging reasonable prices.
We will definitely be booking again, but sadly not until next year!!”"

"“Hi Andy,
We had the very best time. Chalet One is bursting with character, so cosy and comfortable. It was all such a treat. Lovely wines too, felt thoroughly spoiled. What a great place it is, and it all ran like clockwork, all so comfortable, buckets of hot water, roaring fire in the evening. A really great week, it ticked all the boxes for all of us.
It was so good, and hopefully we will be back for more…. James and Tom were toying with the idea of sneaking out for a bit of powder if there is a window in the bookings and the snow is right – but for the moment, it is back to reality….”"

"“…For it’s relaxed atmosphere and après ski, we found Sainte Foy to be one of the finest resorts that France has to offer; combined with the great food, excellent wines and welcoming atmosphere, you can’t fail to fall in love with the infinitely charming and cosy Chalet One; it was one of the best holidays we have ever had. The only problem was, at the end of the week, we just didn’t want to leave.”" 17 Sep 12
