"Chalet 1802 provides excellent accommodation and five-star food in beautiful surroundings and all at a reasonable cost."

The Guardian

Chamonix is rightly famous for its skiing but where to stay - as usual there is a bewildering range of choice. If you're looking for some of the best chalets in Chamonix then try Chalet 1802.

The Eclectic Traveller

Chalet 1802 put you up in style. You'll be living in luxury with some of the best views in the valley and eating wonderful food.

Thank You Letters and Emails

Thank you for looking after us so well. We have had a great time and appreciate everything you have done for us. Best wishes for the future and hope to see you again soon.


Thankyou for looking after us so well. We enjoyed all the food and hospitality. It's been very relaxing. Hope it's not long before we see you agin.


Thanks for a great holiday and awesome food!! Have a great season!!!


Thank you for the best weekend ever. Everything has been fantastic, we couldn't have asked for anything more.


Just wanted to say thanks to Ruben and both of you for a great weekend - had loads of fun and got some great snowboarding in (unfortunately, like Clark Kent, you lot never seemed to be around when I was at my best!). Everyone I spoke to said that they really enjoyed it and would recommend the place to friends. Hope the rest of the season goes well for you. Thanks again.


Thank you so much for looking after us really well last week. I have gone back to work feeling so much better for my holiday in the Alps - was it the fresh air, the sunshine, the fantastic food or all the wine? Perhaps a bit of all of them. Rob's friends seemed really heartfelt about how great the week was when we said goodbye at Gatwick. You have set yourselves a really high standard of holiday chalet: we were very cosy in Chalet Schuss, all the rooms look really attractive. Then we were treated to delicious food. I shall definitely be trying out some new recipes this weekend. Good luck nest week with all your guests. We will certainly be recommending you to friends!


I've been wanting to write for awhile to thank you guys for an awesome time at Chalet Schuss - oh to be there now! We are Schuss devotees and it remains a brilliant holiday in my mind. It was the perfect place for my birthday and New Year - you looked after me well - cheers guys.


Just to say thanks for a brilliant week. Dam good company, food, skiing, chalet, views etc (Best yet...) I have been in touch with Graeme and Miranda who are in agreement. Hopefully look forward to you again in the summer when I come back to climb Mont Blanc.


Thanks again for being great hosts and I think everyone managed to get back to Nottingham in one piece. Steve and the crew have got a safe bet in organising things with you. Everyone had a great time, fantastic food but now it's back to reality and breakfast without Coco-pops! How will I survive? All the best for the rest of the season.


Sincere thanks for a fantastic and very memorable weekend. Can't think of a better way of spending the weekend really and what a great bunch of people. I got home yesterday and was capable of little more than opening the post but I think I'm recovered now. My views on recycling may have altered slightly but it's just increased my passion for skiing. Once again thanks very much.


I just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you again for a great week at your lovely chalet. What an amazing place, you really did create a perfect chalet there, and congratulations on your chef, he cooked the most amazing food, I haven't eaten that well in a long time. Please send our thanks to the boys agian, to Reuben whose food we all sorely miss as well as his ever cheerful self, even when we made him cook breakfast rather early and were always late for his cakes. And thanks to Daph for putting up with all the faffing. Good luck with everything and have a restful summer.


Many thanks to both of you for a really really great week...feeling quite blue as London is as grey as we left it...and freezing too...promise to tell at least my 8 siblings about you and anyone else who expresses a desire to go skiing! Have a good rest of the season and many thanks again for all you delicious food and hard work.


It was great to see you last week. You have a lovely set up and your hospitality is first class. Throw in an almost broken leg/head, two almost missed flights, a forgotton passport and frostbite in your toes and you have the perfect holiday. Thanks again.


Thank you for arranging a great week for us. There is always a risk in booking late in the day and yet when we arrived the chalet was great, Reuben cooked superbly and both of you were very welcoming and helpful. Thank you. In addition the snow and skiing and lack of crowds made the skiing a great success - and the boys are now just about as fast as we are. Many thanks agian. We're all keen to visit Chamonix again...


Thanks once agin for a fantastic weekend. You can see from the e-mail below, and the separate forwarded one, and the attached letters that our guests had a wonderful time. Your service and hospitality are second to none. Hopefully see you soon.


Thanks again for a very entertaining weekend in Chamonix. See you soon.


May I take this opportunity to thank you, Colin and Dave for a fantastic weekend in Chamonix. It was exhilarating, exhausting, enjoyable and most memorable. I feel very honoured to have been invited on the inaugral trip and it was good to get to know all the other guests as well. The accommodation was superb and you really did come across a great find in Charlie and Daph. Thanks also for arranging Bruno, the mad Frenchman. If anyone had told me that I would ski off piste powder after 10+ years of not skiing then I would not have believed it. Although I think I may now be suffering from whiplash from one of the many nose dives into the snow! Please pass on my gratitude to all that were involved in organising the trip. Kind regards and very many thanks again.


What a really great trip. The recipe for the weekend was as well put together as the meals turned out by Ruben. A good mix of personalities ensured a high level of amusement. The skiing was truly fantastic with probably the best conditions ever. I think whoever said that the last day will be the one to remember as we crashed through treess and haystacks and resembled snowmen, was absolutely right! Thanks for including me in the team. Very many thanks.

Chalet Schuss 2010/11

We all had an amazing time, Jade and Andrew are a really lovely couple and couldn't do enough for us, even sourcing a surprise birthday cake for me. Everyone who came with us is already talking about returning next year!


We very much enjoyed our time at Chalet's just a shame it was over so quickly.


Chalet Schuss 2009/10

Many thanks to you and your team for a great week at Chalet Schuss. The chalet was very comfortable, and Andy and Jade both looked after us very well. Jade's cooking was superb and she was excellent in catering for the 'wheat free' request. The transport to and from the chalet was always available when needed. Thank you for your efficient help witht he arrangements not just for the chalet booking, but with the additional information and support with booking transfers and ski passes. We all thoroughly enjopyed our stay.

Ian and Angela Pursell 04/01/10

Was a first Christams away from home and it has been an amazing time, filled with lots of firsts! The hot tub and sauna were great particularly after a day skiing. Jade and Andy were offered jobs back at home, amazing service and food! Phil and ALun were brill with all their lifts here there and everywhere. A good job well done. Thankyou.

Chalet Schuss 2008/9

Thanks for looking after us so well, driving us around and taking us to Courmayeur for a great day of skiing. Thanks for the fantastic meals every day. Hope to see you set up in your own restaurant next year!

Carl and Angie

Thanks for a fantastic week! We all had a wonderful time, and a large contributory factor was all teh hard work that the two of you put in. We had all been looking forward to this week for so long, and it was just amazing to be looked after so well, and to have such fantastic food all the time. We felt thoroughly spoilt.


Thank you for the most amazing Christmas ever! You were the most fantastic hosts. The cooking was out of this world, the quality of food and variety in the menu was second to none. The chalet has been a great base with views that I never could have imagined. Eleanor you have been fabulous with the children, I don't know how we would ever have managed getting them all into ski school each day without you. I cannot thank you enough. The memory will last for ever.


Thank you for everything you have done to make this a wonderful Christmas. You have both been excellent hosts and have made us feel very welcome.

Trevor and Christine

Eleanor and Ben the superstar hosts. Thank you for an amazing Christmas that we will never forget.

Laura and Chris

Fun! Hot tub! Food! Thank you for a fantastic holiday.

Kate and Lilly

Eleanor and Ben we can't thank you enough for giving us such a fantastic time. You are both stars.

Sue and Andy

Many thanks for your hospitality and local expert knowledge! It was a great week, the food was fantastic and the hosting superb. Thanks for the hardcore skiing.

Fiona and Russ

A huge thank you for the welcome, the food, the skilled Discovery driving, the recipes and restaurant recommendations, and the phenomenal afternoon of skiing. The wee ones appreciated all your patience and attention and so did we! Thanks tons, we hope you have a brilliant rest of the season.

Peggy and co.

Thank you both. We've all had such a fantastic time. The best skiing, the best chocolate brownies and such delicious food. The best holiday with friends in such a beautiful place.


Eleanor and Ben were fantastic hosts and made our holiday!


Ben and Eleanor have been amazing and had a great sense of humour. I loved the cooking!


Great cooks, grteat drivers. Thanks Ben for your great cooking and putting up with some picky eaters. Thanks Eleanor for driving us everywhere.


Had a wonderful time, made extra special by Ben and Eleanor. Food was superb, chalet beautifully clean. A great holiday.


Wicked week down to Eleanor and Ben! Chalet gorgeous and views of Mont Blanc stunning. Thanks kids for putting up with us, I imagine one of your loudest weeks?! Best of luck for the future.

Murrells family

Had a lovely time guys, thanks for looking after us. Felt very at home, excellent food, lovely chalet, fantastic wine! Sorry about the kids singing every 5 mins. Hope to see you all again soon.

The Cartwrights

Lovely chalet, great location. Thanks to Charlie and Alan for all their help and the wine! Great cross country mountain biking up the valley at Le Tour. Outstanding downhilling from the top of Les Houches. Crazy rafting from Chamonix and a killer walk up to the first station of the Aiguille du Midi. We had lots of bbq's on the decking. Enjoy.


I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for an amazing stay. We had a superb time that went beyond all expectations!! The Chalet is wonderful, so homely and comfortable. The views were out of this world, views I will always remember. I was overwhelmed sitting in the spa with a glass of wine, surrounded by snow and such fabulous views. My biggest thanks go to Ben and Eleanor who really made the holiday for us! They are a fantastic team together and work so incredibly hard to please, yet manage to fit in and be part of the family. Ben's cooking was amazing, the food we had was incredible and he even managed to fit in special requests.... My Dad is still talking about his amazing Crepes Suzettes!! I was so impressed at how he catered so well for the children, providing a nutritious yet fun menu while entertaining them at the same time. They are still talking about the 'Dead Fish' in the sink and Ben's special cakes! And Eleanor....... Well what can I say!?!? She is so lovely! I don't know how I would have coped with ski school for the three girls without her, she was a complete star!! She somehow just managed to come along like Mary Poppins and sweep them up and get them ready and out the door! She kept the chalet beautiful and went beyond the call of duty to ensure we had everything we needed. Again, like Ben, she kept the girls amused and even let them 'help' with the cleaning! I think with the cooking and cleaning skills they have learned, I'll have 3 budding Chalet Hosts for you in 15 years or so!! Thank you so much for a truly fantastic holiday, I will treasure the memories forever! Ps...... I haven't even mentioned the wine!!!!!!! AMAZING...... The wine selection was gorgeous, it seemed to compliment every meal we had and with Eleanor around I was never without a full glass!! In fact she invented 'wine o'clock' and had me a filled glass as soon as I had put the children to bed! THANK YOU!!!!!


We had a great time at Chalet Schuss principally due to the quality of the fare and the congeniality of the hosts. Keep them for another season if you can!!! Thanks again,


We had a wonderful week at Chalet Schuss. Without exception we all enjoyed our week - not a cross word throughout which is not bad when you remember we had three generations under one roof. Everybody came away feeling relaxed and rested which we have to say was very much due to the efforts of Eleanor and Ben who looked after us royally. The food was excellent so much so we are now all on strict diets for a few weeks! As mentioned the success of the week was very much enhanced by Eleanor and Ben. Both are great people and an asset to your business and none of us can speak too highly of them. They quite became members of the family from the first day. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble and they were a delight to have around the house, so much so the children were looking forward to their arrival each evening but I have a feeling this was something to do with food. Again many thanks for a wonderful week and I am sure you will be seeing some of us again.


We all thought the Chalet was absolutely fantastic, and what a great location! A great week was had by all, so a huge thank you from all of us, I reckon we will be back!


It was wonderful! We had the most fantastic week, thank you for everything, beautiful chalet, incredible food, brilliantly looked after and the perfect conditions. Couldn't have asked for more! Thanks again


I can fault nothing regards Chalet Schuss and our excellent hosts, Ben and Eleanor. We all had a fantastic week, the skiing was great, good conditions, and lots of fun, but the chalet and the service Ben and Eleanor provided made it for us all. The food was exceptional, and the lifts, transfer of skis, and general provision of the Hot tub, sauna etc equally as good. I would be glad to return, and although its unlikely we will have the same hosts, if they decide to do further seasons with you, make sure you let us know. Best wishes to you to also for 2009. Please pass on our thanks and compliments once again to Ben and Eleanor, and please add us to your mailing list for late 2009, in preparation for early 2010.


We really, really enjoyed our week. The chalet was great, we loved being able to ski in and ski out, the views were amazing. I could not say enough positive things about the food. Everyone in our group had an amazing week. Ben and Eleanor could not do enough to help out and are a passive asset to the chalet. Everything about the week was perfect and there is a definite possibility you may see us next year!


I just wanted to drop you a note to say what a wonderful week we've had at your chalet. Ben and Eleanor are fantastic, very friendly and both very good at their jobs! The food was outstanding and the chalet is excellent. Please send our thanks on to Ben and Eleanor once again - it was a pleasure to meet them both.

Thankyou for taking us to the ski thing I'll never forget this wonderful experience. Thank you very much.


What can I ask for: a trip to Paris to run my first marathon, a superb massage, a lovely 4 day ski tour which is my vourite spot in the world; my first contact with glaciers, magnificient views, superb photos, excellent catering service and a good friendship. Thanks for everything. Hope to come back in the future. Don't forget about the offer to switch spectacular Acapelco stays in Mexico for your lovely chalet in Les Houches. Thanks again.


We had an excellent time! As I mentioned your deescription on the web page is an understatement. We loved the cooking, the chalet, the views... This has redefined our skiing experience, and even after our marathon. We will recommend you and hope to be back sometime. Thanks for a great vacation.

Thanks for a great week, we were certainly well looked after again. Caroline is a great chef and they were both great hosts. Thanks again for all your help


Just a quick note to say thank you for a fantastic weekend. The chalet was gorgeous and the hosts an absolute delight.


Wanted to say what a wonderful weekend we had, I will definitely recommend you to anyone who wants to go to Chamonix. You looked after us over and above what was expected and made it a weekend we'll never forget. I was even telling a taxi driver the other day what a wonderful company you are. Take care and best of luck.


Just a quick note to say thank you from our group. Even though the snow wasn't the best, we all had a fantastic time.


Thanks for a totally epic week, the chalet was amazing with a view to match. The chalet boys, Jamie and Dave really took care of us with some exceptional cooking. I'll definitely be back.


I can't tell you what a fantastic time we had at Chalet Schuss! Everything was perfect. A great room, amazing views, wonderful food and wine and outstanding service! We haven't felt so relaxed for a long time and Dave and Caroline definitely encouraged that! We have been telling everyone we know how brilliant it was and that we highly recommend it as a holiday. Hopefully, we will be able to return.

Catherine and Tom

Chalet Schuss 2005/6

Thank you so much for looking after us all so well. We thought Chalet Schuss was amazing and your hospitality outstanding. Enjoy the rest of the season and we look forward to returning!!


Thanks so much. Hope to see you both very soon.


Many, many thnaks to you both for such a superb holiday. We have had a truly magical week with scrumptious food, delicious tiddly making wine and lots of laughs. We will long to come back. Thankyou also for putting up with us for so long, our last day of skiing was without doubt the best, so we are really grateful.


Thank you for a fantastic long weekend!The skiing has been great, although the weather has been sort of unstable. However, above all, the accommodation has been brilliant, as have the people behind it! Thank you indeed. I hope we'll be able to come back soon.

Kristian and Maria

How awful! I'm totally exhausted - a headache from over indulgence. I've put on so much weight my salopettes are too tight. I've had the most wonderful time and I'm only sad I have to go home. I'll be back with my family I'm sure. Many thanks.


The accommodation is as beautiful as the people running it! Many thanks for looking after us, the break was superb. A wonderful bolt hole for William HRH and Kate.


Everything was just schuss-ie.


Thank you for a fabolous few days - wonderful hospitality and am going back to lose some weight!! Hopefully we will see you next time.


Thank you for looking after us so well, the accommodation, food and especially the location and exceptional company. We have been made to feel so welcome that we can't wait to return next March with a few others. Good luck with The Farmhouse, we can't wait to see it next year.


Thanks for the wonderful food and stellar chat. Good luck with the rest of the season


Wonderful food, folk, fine wine and top gags to boot. Michelen star fun.


Loved it as always - an amazing array of delectable food stuffs, copious volumes of fine wine and awesome skiing. Cheers guys.


Thank you for the most amazing holiday. Delicious food. Quite simply brilliant. Thanks for my birthday cake! Yum. Cheers.


Wow - what a fantastic holiday! Going home feeling very fat, well rested and ready to book the next trip out! Thanks Daph and Starbar.


A well needed holiday and absolutely faultless. Thank you for everything.


Just want to say thanks for a most fantastic week. Food and hospitality excellent. Hope to come back in the summer to get to the peaks. Snowboarding has been great, couldn't ask for better ski in/ski out. Hope the rest of the season goes well.


Thanks for the food - Luke really enjoyed it!!! We've had a brilliant time and hope to see you again.


Bob on place; lovely food, had brill time.


A hugh thankyou for such a fantastic holiday. The chalet is great, amazing plastering and painting and the food was fabulous. Thanks for the new drinking games. I think that they may be bought out in London.


Thank you both so much for your amazing hospitality and hard work to make this week so fantastic. As a result I'm completely in love with skiing holidays and can't wait to come back to the slopes! Regis was a total legend and made a huge difference to our ski experience. Thanks for everything guys - amazing food, constant ferrying and a great sense of being looked after.


Everything was great.


Thanks so much for a fantastic week - a really excellent ski holiday. The food was amazing - I'm really not looking forward to eating in London! Bognor was a great ski instructor. The holiday would not have been anywhere near the same without him (the ski god). Hope the rest of the season goes well (and you have many more groups as us!).


Thank you so much for a fantastic week - the chalet is beautiful, the food wonderful and the hosts generally amazing! I've felt more looked after! Totally gutted to be leaving and sincerely hope to come back. Would be great if you guys kept in touch - hope the rest of 2006 is great for you both. Thanks again.


Thank you so much for having us - I've had a really great week and think Chamonix is an excellent ski area. Done some great runs and thought the Vallee Blanche was awesome - will be remembering that next week when I'm plonked in front of my computer screen trying to avoid falling asleep with boredom! Charlie your cooking has been amazing. Thank you for guiding us around the mountains and generally looking after us. Daff had I not one the inter equipe competition I would blame you entirely for being chief snitch and diving in tempter. Anyway this is turning into a bit of a sermon, but really, thanksso much, it's been really great. Hopefully will see you again next season?! Hope the rest of '06 goes well and you have time to enjoy yourselves.


I don't really know where to begin apart from saying a massive/hugh/very very big thank you!!! I've had an absolutely brilliant week and loved every minute...well almost every minute! From the moment Daff met us at teh airport to the moment he took us back (hopefully we'll get there!) I've laughed non stop...well apart from a few moments on the Valley Blanche. I have so many fab times/memories I can't list all of them but Charlie's cooking has to be very memorable and I won't be forgetting the annoying traffic police. Spending time with friends and meeting you before I move back to Japan has been great. And what a great place to do it at Chalet Schuss. I wish you all the best for the future. I have total admiration for you both, I think your chalet business is going to be the best in the alps. I'll be back. You are legends. Thanks.


An awesome week - thank you so much! It's been a home away from home, exemplary hospitality, amazing food, fantastic company and by far the best ski trip I've had. Will recommend to anyone and look forward to hopefully returning. Thanks for everything.


Thankk you for everything - you are both legends and it has been a wonderful debut week in Chalet Schuss. I look forward to many more in the future. Worst moment: the top of the Vallee Blanche. Best moment: the bottom of the Vallee Blanche. Thanks for making me do it Charlie. I apologise for the rabble I brought with me, but you've gotta love them.


This has been my favourite holiday ever and I really want to come again. I especially liked all of the food! I wonder if my mum will get all of the recipes; I will miss you all so much and of course all of the lovely food.


Thank you so much for making our stay so friendly and welcoming, and for looking after us all. We have had a thoroughly wonderful time, eaten too much, drunk too much, and also manged to fit in some skiing. Thank you both very, very much.

Tony and Sue

I really loved the chocolate cousonts. Best ski holiday yet.


Thank you for all your hospitality and fun. I loved every moment of it. I don't want to leave.


Hated skiing but still had a wonderful break. Thank you.


Thank you for being so helpful, all the best with your future plans.


We have had a wonderful time here, thank you very very much. It has been our first time skiing and thanks to you the experience was amazing. Charlie your cooking is out of the world. The breakfasts, afternoon teas and desserts. And Daff thank you for shuttling us around, you guys offered the best service we've ever found. We have really enjoyed the fresh air, snow and sun. Tjis week has been a lot of fun. We will tell everyone about Chalet 1802 so that they can have a wonderful holiday too.


All of the plus great coco pops.


Yet another superlative holiday. As always the accommodation, the food, the service are second to none. The chalet is fantastic by the way. Thanks for everything.


Great time - thanks for looking after us all so well.


Superb! Thanks again for the wonderful hospitality. You've done a fantastic job on the chalet and I'm looking forward to the return visit.

Scrumpy Jon

Probably the best chalet holiday in the world! Had a fantastic week, great skiing, great food and excellent company. Can't wait to return for more of the same.


Just fantastic. See you next year.


Thanks again for a fab week.


Thank you for a very average week. I appreciate that you do try, but the chalet is horrible and the sofas are extraordinarily uncomfortable. Plus your faces are pretty offensive to look at. Despite the constructive criticism I may be persuaded to return. Thanks so much.


Superlative. I feel an exclamation mark coming Solina and Tom were mightily impressed as well.


Thanks for a super stay. As promised you converted our parents to absolutely convinced chalet goers. Kids loved it, we loved it...hope to see you back real soon. Love to Tom and Natalie - Tom's the best cook ever and Natalie's desserts are just so great. Lots of success with the chalets.

Erik and Miranda

Fantastic food, great skiing and and amazing guys rock. Take care, hope to see you again.

Hamish and Sarah

Thank you for an awesome time, apologies for the bad luck - lost luggage, lost lift'll be glad to see the end of us! Thanks again, everything was great - food, company and chalet - look forward to seeing you again.


We had a wonderful, if not fattening week; You both have a natural talent for making people feel welcome and comfortable. I hope to see you again!


You guys rock!! Thanks for an awesome week - at least you can rest assured that your bad luck charm is going home! I promise I won't bring him again! Thanks for a great New Years Eve - the dance off was certainly one to remember - especially the rolly polly Daff!!

Jax and Tony

What can we say? Lucas just said to me "That was the best Christmas ever" and so many times during our stay the same thing was said by all of us: notably after Christmas breakfast when the pancakes, eggs, bacon, pain au chocolat and pate, just started the day perfectly and also after our sledge race on Christmas night which finished the day magically! We all have had a Chritmas which we will never forget and for all the right reasons. Thank you so much for all your time and efforts, especially playing with the children and teaching us all the right way to eat!

Julie and Chris

Our stay at Chalet Schuss has flown by and yet it seems an age since that first day we arrived in your winter wonderland. The views from the living room are stunning. If it weren't for the skiing I'd sit there all day! Daf thank you for drving us here, there and everywhere. Charlie thank you for cooking all that beautifully presented food - you have inspired me to try out some new things when we get back.

Kirsty and Rollo

Guys you really don't charge enough for such an awesome holiday. Thanks so much. (You don't know how hard it was to say something genuinely nice.°


Thanks for being such amazing hosts and making our holiday so special.


Thanks for a fantastic week. Unforgettable days and nights.

Lou and Matt

Thanks for great food and a great week. See you again soon!


What a fantastic few days! Thank you for everything - food, company, weather.


Have loved every minute of it. Thank you for everything. See you in London town soon I hope.


Thanks for the expert boarding tuition, apologies for not making the grade. If only the boarding skills matched the hospitality ones...


Thanks so much for such a fun week.


Thank you for the food, good times and daily beatings.


Thanks so much for such a fantastic holiday. It's been amazing. See you in london soon.


Thankyou for a lovely time. Charlie the food was great. All the hard work it's all beginning to pay off.


Great holiday. I particularly enjoyed being better than most of the rest on the slopes.


Thank you very much for such a lovely time. I really enjoyed myself. Food was marvellous, hospitality spectacular and le lash, well - super duper. Thanks again and good luck.


Chalet Schuss 2004/5

We could not have been better looked after. Daph surely knows how to cook a mean breakfast, while Charlie can really cook!! Excellent value - I can't imagine getting more for your money anywhere.


Everyone...thanks for an amazing time - you've all contributed to an amazing holiday. Next time I will ski the Kandahar, and learn to snowboard. Thanks again - see you next year.


One word - Fab. Thankyou for making it a great one. Look forward to spotting you on Ski Sunday.


Thanks so much for such a great holiday. Top class food and infinite patience. Good luck next year.


Thank you for a fantastic holiday! The food was awesome Reuben and Charlie...sorry and Daph for your eggs. Every minute was enjoyable. Thank you for all your hard work and for making our time here effortless. Hopefully see you sometime next season.


Beautiful boys to entertain the girls, honourable men to inspire the men. Faultless. You rock.


Thank you so much for all your hard work - amazingly patient and always helpful, nothing too much trouble. We really appreciate all you have done Reuben - you are a magician!


They said it all! You were brilliant, the chalet was superb and the food was out of this world. Thank you so much.


Guys a great week, you have been brilliant hosts. Top grub.


How do you manage to live amongst so much beauty all year round? Thank you for a great week at your beautiful chalet. My stomach has never been so happy - my thighs never so painful. Have a great 2005 and I hope to see you again very soon.


Really appreciate all the lifts and meals and looking after that you have done. The chalet is lovely and one of the nicest we have stayed in. Hope you enjoy a well earned rest at the end of the season and have a successful start to winter 2005.


We would like to say a big thank you for making our holiday so great. The atmosphere, the food and the great location was superb. But above all the fantastic service was second to none. We could not have experienced such a fab holiday without the help and attention to detail from Daf, Reuben and Charlie. Thanks again.

The Priestly Party



Fantastic food, great place and all the late runs into town were beyond the call of duty.


What can I write! Just excellent. Fantastic food and great service.


You've done a fantastic job. Perfect combination of piste ride living and access to town. Catering excellent everyday. Cheers.


An absolutely fantastic few days. Thanks for the superb food and entertainment and what makes it all so good is the personal touch. Good luck with the chalets in the future.


Thanks a million for a great long weekend! We've had a great time. As usual food, service qnd compqny excellent.


Thanks for a really awesome 5 days: cordon bleu food, five star chauffering in the landi, some inspired guiding through challenging forests and generally being extremely gnarly boarders (and one inspiraional leading skier down the Vallee Blanche). Loved it.


Excellent everything. Good luck with the business.


Last year was great, this year has kept up the high standards!! Great food, drink, company etc (oh and snow!!). Thanks for ferrying us about and for putting up with us at the last minute. See you again soon.


Thanks for all the orange juice and birthday cake!


We have all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The food has been superb and we have appreciated the warm welcome and friendly help throughout the stay.


We have had a great time. Reuben's food was fabtastic. Everybody was so helpful.


Chalet Schuss was fantastic. The food was out of this world. The hosts were great we'd love to return again.

The youngs

What more can I say to add to the above? You have a very promising enterprise here and with your lovely, friendly approach I'm sure you'll be very successful. I'll be in touch re possible bookings for client weekends. Very best wishes and thanks.


Great, great, great. Food, hosting, company. Good luck and thanks for everything.


Many thanks Charlie and Daph for hospitality above and beyond the call of duty. You and your minibus made it 5 days to remember.


Thanks for a great holiday. You brillinat rejigged arrangements at short notice to accommodate a party of 13. Food brilliant and advice/transport to ski areas excellent. I wish you every success in the venture and hope to see you again sometime as we've definitely got to do the Vallee Blanche. Charlie brilliant managemnet/coaching on our off piste marathon that we'll remember for years.


Thank you for looking after me. I've had a great time.


Brilliant week - skiing and eating! Amazing cuisine Charlie. Many thanks.


Thanks for a fantastic week - great food, great company and great ski guiding. Thanks for the vegetarian food. This is one of the best places we've stayed in in over 20 years of skiing.


Fantastic! Very nice laid back atmosphere, super food and so on. Thanx.


Congratulations to Charlie and Daph. We have been totally impressed with the massive amount of work both of you have put into Chalet 1802. From our first enquiry you have been friendly and informative. With your help and the transport you have we have enjoyed Chamonix and all of its delights. Even when the snow has not been great your hospitality has made up for it! We wish you the best of luck with Chalet 1802 in the future, and will be reccommending you to all our friends.


Thank you very much for looking after us so well this week - we have had a really great holiday. The food has been excellent; the boys will have to answer for the skiing but I've certainly loved the vin chaud, sunshine, views...Not necessarily in that order! We have been very cosy in Chalet Schuss, plus ideally located for the World Ski Championship. Thank you for everything.


Cheers very much for a really fun week. I had a great time and I think that I might finally be finding my ski legs. I even got to ski on the Kandahar.


Thanks for a wonderful week, the food was delicious. Hope all goes well for you in the future.


Well there's not much left for me to say after the last few pages, but I still feel the need to contribute. You have made the chalet a very special place - in physical detail and in the atmosphere that can only come from the fact that Chalet Schuss is run by two very cool people. I've had a wicked time and will be back asap. Thank you both so much.


Wow, it has been massively super cool week at Chalet Schuss. You have looked after us in supreme style...amazing food and wonderful company - showing us all the highlights of Chamonix. New Years eve was definitely one to remember!! That's the bits I can remember! Hope to see you soon. Many thanks.


Thank you both for such a fantastic holiday and for sharing such a gorgeous mountain retreat! You have created a total winner. Thank you for continually ferrying us all around, the wonderful food and great nights out. I couldn't think of a better place to spend New Year. Love to stay in touch.


You've done a great job. had a brilliant holiday. Great food. Both very welcoming and helpful. Thanks a lot.


It's been a great week with excellent food, company and snow. Hopefully see you again soon.


Speechless, gobsmacked, in awe - what an amazing week - really it's been a fantastic holiday for so many reasons. Chalet Schuss is a dream and was a real home for the week, making it difficult to leave. You've looked after us so well and fed us so well too - meal after meal of delicious food. It's great to see you too, working hard but clearly in your element (snow). Great things will come of Schuss and 1802 I can feel it in dem bones. Guys you're the best which means another rendez vous soon.


Thanks a lot, we've had a laugh on our holiday to Les Houches in Chalet Schuss. So thank you very much for an excellent week.


Great food, great people, great skiing, great week. Thanks for everything.


Thank you so much for a brilliant week. I really appreciated all the things you did for us during our stay.


Thanks for a great week.


Excellent. Now for the soppy stuff...

Chalet Sous Les Bois 2010/11

Thank you, and we all had a wonderful stay at Sous Les Bois. We will definitely recommend you if any of our friends are looking to go on a trip to Chamonix.


Chalet Sous les Bois was absolutely fantastic - even more special when we heard how much of the design and structure was down to you. Your staff are magnificent. Sarah, Joe and Dave were brilliant and made us feel really welcome. Once again many thanks. I'm sure we'll be meet again as we cannot imagine staying any where else.


Many thanks to you and your team for another superb stay.


Thank you so much for allowing me to join Andy and Alastair for their days with you at the chalet. You had organised a brilliant trip for us and I had a wonderful time. Despite my rudimentary skills, or perhaps because of them - I'm still able to get real satisfaction out of those odd moments when I get things half right - I enjoyed every moment of the skiing. And thank you for giving up so much of your time for us. Courmayeur would have been impossible without you and our two lunches with you were such good fun. The chalet is fantastic. Particular highlights, our bathroom (loved the floor!) and the top floor which is just stunning and works so well as a living space, but the whole chalet is just amazing. It is a tremendous achievement, particularly given how much of the work you did yourselves. You should be very proud. Sarah and Joe looked after us very well, and I hope we haven't been responsible for swelling Dave's head too much, but his food was very, very good!


Chalet Sous Les Bois 2009/10

Magnificent view of the mountains + virtuoso and friendly staff + homely chalet = fabulous stay!!! Indeed, I meant it from the bottom of my heart! To be honest, I was a bit conscious of the fact that I had found details of the chalet by surfing the net without prior recommendation etc. but all that simply disappeared once I arrived in the chalet, it was the right choice! Special thanks to Sarah and Ben for making our stay comfy and relaxing! Ben was very open in sharing his gastronomic expertise and Sarah was very caring!! The only concern - the stay was SHORT...but then, this is a VALID excuse for me to come back!!! For sure!!! Once again many thanks for all you and your team have done. Highly appreciated!!!

Oksana Petergerenko 07/01/10

Lovely place - cozy, clean & stylish. The Staff is absolutely Fantastic! Very Friendly, helpful & efficient. Food was delicious Ben is a great Chef!! Thank you for making our stay a perfect & thoroughly enjoyable!!

Helena J 10/01/10

Good times, good food, nice accommodation. We enjoyed our stay, especially the friendly staff.

John Sandwick & Elena 10/01/10

Great weather, great chalet, great stuff! Thanks for all!

Chalet Sous Les Bois 2008/09

Just a few lines to say thank you for making our stay at Chalet Sous Ls Bois so memorable. We were cosseted and spoilt from the moment we arrived until we left. The chalet is in such a beautiful position with lovely views from all windows. It was so warm with the underfloor heating. The en-suite bedrooms were extremely comfortable, so much space for everything. We must make special mention of the menus. All our meals were superb, such a treat for us. We also wish to congratulate you on your choice of staff - nothing was too much trouble at any time. Such a happy atmosphere. Our best wishes to you all.

Gordon and Pat

Had a great week but weigh more now! Thanks again for looking after us so wonderfully. Please extend our thanks to Daff & Al..


We had the best time and were commenting that it is one of the nicest chalets we've ever stayed in the Alps (certainly the best food). The snow conditions and the weather were also just remarkable and thanks for introducing us to Geomme. Good luck with your business and hope we get to meet you again. Thanks again for your excellent service.


Thank you both so much for our wonderful week in your gorgeous chalet. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. When we eventually got home yesterday (after a 6 hour wait in Geneva!!) the boys were extolling the virtues of your cooking and Nic suggested that we should eat like that every evening! It really was a splendid holiday and we will hopefully visit you again. Is it possible to update us in the summer with your details etc and website? Thanks again.


Thought I must drop you a line to thank you so much for our delightful stay in your lovely chalet. We enjoyed it very much and it was great to meet you both. You were fantastic hosts, and Charlotte, we are already missing your great cooking! We would certainly recommend you to friends and family. All the very best and hope that the rest of the season goes well.


Thank you very much for you warm hopsitality and for your patience with us. We'll be sure to come again in the near future. I wish you and Daph all the best.


The same thanks come from us. We had a lovely holiday, the chalet and the food were just superb. Good luck with the rest of the season.


We had a wonderful week in your chalet from every point of view. The chalet was great and particularly suited our fairly foody party. The skiing was of course fantastic, and we all really enjoyed being to be able to go to so many different areas each with their different character - I'd be hard put to say which I enjoyed most.


Thanks very much for looking after us - hope to see you again. I'll send the link to your website to our guys in Geneva.


Just a note to thank you for a great time in Sous Les Bois. It was really great to be looked after so well and you really did go the extra mile to make it a great holiday.

The Farmhouse 2010/11

I know that Dan sent you a message thanking you for our stay but I just wanted to say thank you myself. I had such a lovely time and really wasn't expecting to. All the guys were really sweet and professional and the chalet was really comfortable. We'll definitely be back and I handed out a good few cards on the slopes as well! I would love to get a B&B here by the sea one day and the way that you guys have done the chalet and the little touches really fits with what I would like to do - a real inspiration. Take care an thanks again


We had a fantastic time, thank-you very much. We'd certainly be happy to stay with you again when we next go to Chamonix...though with our wanderlust for new places that could be a while! We really did all have a fantastic time, one of the best skiing holidays I've ever been on, thank-you.


We had a fantastic time thank you. Everything was really wonderful!


We had a great time in the Farmhouse. Congratulations to you and all the staff - the chalets are beautifully done, the food was amazing and the host very warm, friendly and helpful. Absolutely no complaints. We did get a little raucous but Ann and the rest of the guys took it in the spirit it was intended. When we come back to Chamonix we'll certainly see if you can host us again.


The week has been really nice and we were really delighted with our stay at the Farmhouse. Scott is a great chef and we enjoyed avery one of the meals. Ann is very helpful, nice, warm and smily help in the chalet. And Alun and Phil have been as well very professional. We have all been delighted with the chalet and service provided by your organization. We have spent a very nice week at Les Houches. The only thing to improve was weather (less rain would have been great) ... but was not on your hand :-)


We had a great time and were really well looked after by Anne Scott Phil and Alan. Got back here at 3am after skiing and a long journey. Great holiday, need another to recover though!! Thanks again to all and happy new year to you too.


The Farmhouse 2009/10

We had a fantastic time at The Farmhouse and would definitely stay again if we came back to Chamonix.

As ever chalet was perfect. Food was spectacular, Kelly & Phill provided the smiley face & friendly banter, makes me wish I was out for the season! Daves attempts at a double back flip were totally gnarly, maybe by the time you turn 31 you might have landed one!! Have a great season, lots of love xxx

Dave & Mark

All fantastic, lovely short break, Thanks for everything!

Mark & Sarah

Thanks for a fantastic week. Staff great and thanks for wall to wall sunshine.

Yorkshire Crew and 2 Southerners

Wonderful stay! Fantastic food and great company.

Karen and Phil

It's the first time we've stayed in a chalet in the beautiful Chamonix valley. We skied with no fear - could be the beer - or the thought of upsetting our Ali. We had Dave the chef who's cooking was brill, and we were well looked after by Kelly and Phil. It's now the end of the week and the end of our rhyme. But one thing's for sure, all 13 of us had a great

Fry Family

Thank you for a wonderful week.


Thanks for everything. Lovely staff and food.


Amazing food and extremely comfortable stay with fantastic hosts. Thank you.


Very well looked after. Thank you.


Thank you Sarah, Al and Dave. We had the best time ever! Food was amazing. Hope to see you again in the future.


Comfortable like staying at home, eating as well as in the best possible restaurant and of course...amazing skiing! Thank you Sarah and Dave and congrats to Charlotte for the fantastic place. See you soon.


What a week! Food fantastic - well done Dave. Hot tub much appreciated by the kids.


What an amazing holiday! Fantastic food. Great hosting. You made our holiday so relaxing. Loved the chalet and the boarding. We will be back.


Had an excellent time, I don't think it would be quite so good without hte amazing chalet staff so a massive thank you to Sarah, Al and Dave, you were amazing.


The stay at the Farmhouse has been absolutely amazing: congratulations for the place that exceeded the already high expectations! Staff is also great: Sarah has been incredibly helpful and we appreciated a lot all the food that Dave prepared! Hope to see you soon again. and I'm also actively marketing your place among some of my friends so hope I'll be able to bring you some new customers. All the best for 2009 and speak you soon.


Really enjoyed our time at the Farmhouse and your team were great. They looked after us very well. Thanks for all your help and apologies re my diary management! I am sure we'll be back at some point.


We really liked our stay with you, and would recommend your chalet to people we know, both in England and in Norway! The layout of the house is very good, even for a group of our size. The lounge spaces are large and well laid out, and the bedrooms have all the necessary amenities. We really liked the staff. They were helpful and nice people. The cook was very good. As we cook a lot ourselves and are interested in cuisine, it was important for us that his level was good - and it was! Have a good new years celebration and thank you a gain for contributing to a wonderful stay.


Hope you had a good/busy Christmas. Just a quick note to wish you a happy new year and to say many thanks for your hospitality during our stay before Christmas in Chamonix. It truly was a awesome week all round. Many thanks to you and the guys that took care of us. Good luck for the rest of then year, things are getting busy workwise for me so I dont think I will be going to the snow. Thanks again


We had a great stay! The skiing was great, the food was amazing and the Farmhouse staff were wonderful. We all really enjoyed the week. Only regret is not staying a 2nd week (or third or fourth) J I may try and get another group up for a long weekend in March (see what I can find) but otherwise I may plan a trip for next Feb. As I told Sara, if any of you guys gets through The Hague in the next year please look me up. Thanks again for a wonderful week!


Had a great time. Farmhouse worked out just fine. Alun looked after our comings and goings. Many thanks for that. Not quite sure the exact route we took down valley blanche. We headed left straight off the top so it wasn't the standard run. Steeper in some places. That was really good as we saw no one on the descent until the flats. Magnificent place. The valley is huge and Saturday weather was stunning. Really hot. Harder than i thought it would be but thats the challenge. Another great experience with chalet 1802! I would like to try out your latest and greatest chalet .... Maybe this season. Keep us in mind.


Thank you so much for a fantastic holiday at the Farmhouse. It was really one of the best holidays we ever had. Everything was perfect and we will def be back. The combination of Egypt's desert and Red Sea and the snow was a fantastic combination.


Thanks for a good stay. Sarah and the guys were all great See you again I hope.


We had a fantastic week in The Farmhouse. Your staff are fantastic and the food was exceptional. Everyone is going on a diet even Ellie!!! Thanks again.


We had a great week at The Farmhouse and we were all looked after very well. The food was fantastic, Dave is a great chef and even managed to please the kids which can be a bit of a challenge. The chalet is lovely and we really enjoyed staying there. Hope all goes well for you next season - enjoy a bit of time off now.

Guys we couldn't have had a better time, you have got everything spot on, I wish I were staying longer but at least now I know where to find the perfect winter holiday I look forward to seeing you in Mallorca.

Pip and Simon

Thankyou for looking after us and the meals were yummy. And thankyou Charlie for teaching me to ski better, and thankyou Daf for driving us places and asking if we wanted a drink even though I never drunked.


Thanks Charlie and Daf I had an awesome time working for you guys. The chalet is beautiful, the skiing awesome to learn and everyone working here was awesome to be with. This was the most fun I've had in a long time and the perfect travellers job. I hope I can come back and visit you guys and awesome Houchy. Good luck with the season to come and thanks again.


Had a brilliant time guys and gals. Really appreciate you guys help and effort. Lots of stories to tell and memories to treasure. Drinks, games, stacks, bails, snow storms, injuries, food fun and banter. Lovin' it.


Big thanks to Beth and Lexi - really great hosts and Alex's cooking was the best i've tasted in a long time. Big ups to Dave and Caz for showing us the sights and adding to the laffs. Congrats Charlie and Daph - you've got a real good thing going here and I wish you all the best for the future years. Sure we'll be back!! I'm drifting off now so I'll end this short story, but thanks to everyone and I hope to see you all again soon.

I echo Viv's sentiments - wonderful week - thanks for your great company and crazy games. This is a fabulous holiday location. The skiing was good too!


Great hosts. Thanks very much

All of the above and great coco pops!


Yet again a fantastic week - good food, good company - can't say my skiing has reached good yet!


"Knocked out" by the fantastic refurbishment of The Farmhouse. Welcome, hospitality and ski-guiding first class yet again. Thanks a million!!


Fantastic few days. Skiing excellent, but what really made it special was the superb hospitality and company.


Third year and it gets better and better. Thanks very much for the fantastic hospitality as usual!!

I can't thank you enough for hte most incredible week. You're absolute stars!


Have had a fab time! Thank you all so much/


Thank you for a great week - such an amazing place.


So lovely, a real luxury holiday. Thank you.


Had a lovely time with fantastic hospitality @1802. Charlie and Matt made us feel welcome before we even arrived. Great food and thanks for the medical assistance. We hope to be back soon. Thanks so much!


Just a short note to say how much I enjoyed the trip (to get back on the slopes after 14 years was fantastic and I will certainly be looking at going again). The chalet and food were both very good and the location in Les Houches is ideal. Many thanks again.


I just wanted to write a quick note to say you thank you very much for your hospitality last week. The BWB lot were excellent hosts and made the whole trip most enjoyable. However, you two looked after us royally and ensured that thw whole thing went without a hitch. All your hard work in front of and behind the scenes ensured that the whole trip was a great success. I believe that your efforts were above and beyond the call of duty. You have created a lovely place there and long may it last. You must both be very proud of what you have achieved. Thank you again very much. Please also say thank you to the girls and Alex for looking after us so well.


We just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at the wonderful Farmhouse, for our superb holiday. We had such a fantastic time andwe really loved every minute of it, and I shall certainly be recommending you to everyone. Thank you all so much and we both send our love to you two and all the lovely hard working staff.

Viv and Rob

Thank you very much for a lovely Christmas week...we all really enjoyed the stay at The Farmhouse. The house is well furnished and cosy. The breakfast, afternoon cakes and coffee with log fire and the evening meals was all superb. We were a family of 17 and all of us really, really enjoyed it. Thank you so much and best regards to all of you.

The Helga family from Iceland

Just to say thank you for a great week. The chalet was lovely but most of all the staff were fantastic. We have never had such wonderful chalet girls or such a wonderful chef, all of whom were extremely patient with, not only us, but all the children (which can't have been easy). We would certainly recommend your chalet to friends. Many thanks again


I wanted to put something on your website saying how much we enjoyed staying at The Farmhouse, Beth, Alexi and Alex really did you proud, no doubt a reflection of what you are trying to achieve. From the moment Daph picked us up we knew that we had booked with the right company, he was prompt, well informed about things we needed to know. When we arrived at the chalet at 10.30 pm we were kindly presented with a meal which was most welcome, but not expected - it was also very good, another sign that we had chosen the right chalet. We had a great time. Please pass on our thanks to everyone. You will see us again, and we have already recommended you to several friends.

Dave and Anne

Just a note of thanks for the hospitality extended to us by you and your team when we visited The Farmhouse last week. We had a great time although a few days longer would have been nice, maybe next time. The food (and drink!), accommodation and general level of service was beyond our expectations, and the skiing was excellent too. Please pass on our thanks to your team and hopefully see you again next season.


The Farmhouse 2005/6

What a class act. Really looked after with great food, good company and a top time. Thanks.


Another fantastic stay with Chalet 1802. Food was amazing and thanks to Tom and Nat. Great to see Daph and Charlie again and we will make sure you are drunk in London very soon.


A fab stay again! So much fun and superb food. Thanks to Tom and Nat for putting up with all our chat.


Loved it! Will be back!


Thank you for that love, warmth and care that you filled our stay with and that we could feel in everything you did for us including your heavenly delicious food! Good luck with your business.


We have had a great time. Tom and Nat have been superb. Made our stay thoroughly enjoyable. We don't need to eat for weeks. The chalet is super, lovely bathrooms, bedrooms and relaxing lounge. Loved the video/CD/DVD collection. Catering was heaven for a foodie. Thanks for the experience guys. All this to accompany superb snow in a wonderful area. Will be back!


Thank you for your wonderful food and service - all done with real charm and good nature. I think the natives of Newcastle are going to love yur cooking. We were lucky to have it before you have become famous.


Tom and Natalie thankyou for your fantastic hospitality. We were so lucky to have such an accomplished chef - it was like a 2 Star michelin restaurant everyday! Very best of luck with your future restaurant (it'll be great).


Really nice chalet! The food was great! And thank you to Tom and Natalie for taking us to the ski slopes!


Fabulous food, fantastic chalet and thus a loely holiday! Thanks for looking after us and good luck.


What a fantastic holiday - the food and the hospitality were out of this world. Tom and Natalie you were really great - you made our holiday.


Great holiday - lovely little chalet and excellent food! See again in two weeks.


Had a great time again. Food and hospitality were great. Nice relaxing time without my girls.


Truly fantastic food, especially the chocolate cake. I'm inspired.


Thanks for a lovely break - great food - great company. Hope to see you again next year.


Thanks for a lovely break - and for organising such good weather! We'll bring the mint sauce next time!


Thanks for a great holiday. "I'll be back" - good luck for the rest of the season and the future!


Tom and Nat - fantastic cooks and lovely hosts. Hope you can chill more as the holiday continues and that Tom can improve his drinking. Thanks so much.


Natalie and Tom have really spoilt us with each course more exciting than the last. Much appreciated. Great family chalet and lots of laughs. Thankyou for the great hospitality.


What fantastic food. Wow. Thank you so much...would never have guessed we were your first guests! You're amazing.


Thanks for a great time and great food. Snow was great fun.


Daph your spoofing has improved but the pool is below parr - you may owe us 3 free ski holidays now. Thanks for everything.


The Farmhouse 2004/5

Brilliant skiing, brilliant chalet, brilliant food, brilliant week!


Skiing was great, so was the food and Blackadder!


We've had a fantastic time - good snow, great skiing, good sunshine and great scoff. Returning to Blighty brown and bloated! Thanks Reuben!

Hugh and Etta

Thank you very much for a wonderful holiday. We loved the chalet and thought the food was amazing. Charlie you are the best chef. We can't wait to come back to ski the Vallee Blanche. Best of luck with finishing the other chalet.


Thanks so much for a great 6 days. Food and hospitality first class and such a friendly relaxed atmosphere. We wish you the best of luck for the future plans in your business developement and hope to see you again.

Gillian and Brian

Thank you so much for an amazing hen weekend! Thank you so much for being such great company, putting up with all the hen antics and coming out on the best hen night a girl could ask for! Food was amazing - sorry for all the ingredient questions - we think you rock Reuben! Thank you for a wonderful holiday.


Thank you for such a fantastic holiday - you completely exceeded our expectations and we have had so much fun as you probably realised. The highlight was of course seeing Reuben serving us breakfast every morning!! Take care, come to see us in London and hope to be back next year for more great food and fab hospitality.


Thank you so much for an awesome time - you're all amazing. Thank you for tolerating our hen bash and even joining in (enthusiastically) with the blow up willy!! The food and company was outstanding. Please piblish a cook book. We're coming back next year! Love the Reub fan club.


Fantastic hospitality, the food was amazing and the chef was delicious too. Thank you so much for making the hen weekend sooo special. Good luck with all your future plans. Hope to see you again.


Great hospitality, great fun, food and chat. Thanks for all the above and beyond the call...


Great people. Forget about my other life. An oasis in the snow. Thanks.


Absolutely fantastic, really enjoyable time, even organised a hen do to entertain us. Thanks for all your hospitality. Hope to be back.


Everyone was extremely well looed after. The prospect of no more cooked breakfasts and meals brings a tear to the eye! Thanks Charlie for being a superlative chalet host.


What a fantastic week! Charlie you have been a fabulous host. Rubens amazing carrot cake nearly caused a fight amongst us it was so good. Good luck with all your plans for the future.


We had a fantastic sunny and snowy week, the stripper was a great surprise! Thanks Charlie great chalet and hospitality.

Simon and Samantha

Thanks Charlie you have looked after us very well - and its not easy - I should know! Has been a great week all the best for the future.


Dear Charlie, Thanks for a great stay. Excellent chalet and food. Very comfortable sofa! Hope all goes well with the business and hope to visit again.


We had a great time. Lovely easy chalet. Hope to be back next year.

The Drews

Best 3 day skiing holiday - better than most 7 days. Great skiing and weather, great hosts, superb cooking. A big thanks.

Deep and Indi

Simply fantastic. Good food, good accommodation, very nice chalet, service and reception. Great service to and back from ski slopes. Will come back.


Marvellous, simply marvellous. Perhaps the most attentive hosts I've ever had the pleasure of being served by.


The return visit has surpassed the last - if that's possible. Thanks for everything.


Had a great time again. Wonderful food and really fun evenings talking and drinking.


Great hospitality. You made us all feel very much at home. Very attentive, helpful, great food.


Great holiday and amazing food. Looking forward to the next visit.


Excellent stay - thank you - everyone has been attentive and helpful and Reuben's cooking took away all the good work skiing.


With many heartfelt thanks for the warm hospitality and the pleasure of being in such a warm winter nest.


Thanks for everything. Had a great time.


10/10 all round, skiing, hospitality, food and atmosphere. Will certainly reccomend to as many as possible.


Thank you so much for all your fantastic meals and excellent care. Wishing you a great 2005.


Thank you yet again for everything.


Dear Laura and Reuben, I'll reciprocate everything which has been said before, friendliness, hospitality and great food. If our experience is anything to go by Chalet 1802 will be a roaring success over the next few years. I'll look forward to visiting again!


Fantastic!! We have put on several pounds each thanks to the incessant supply of outstanding meals and snacks. Brilliant welcome, sorrowful departure, you have made it a Christmas break to remeber for years to come - and very memorable for the children who felt Chalet 1802 was a home from home. Fingers crossed we'll be back next year.

The Dyer family

The Farmhouse 2003/4

Thank you for a lovely stay - great food and hospitality. Hope to come agin soon.

Pat and Phil

Thanks for your great hospitality. We enjoyed our stay very much. Great chalet, great food what more could one ask for! Hope to return sometime soon.


We had a great time! The skiing was great - lots of challenging off piste; good snow, fantastic scenery. The food and hospitality - what can we say? We felt like we were part of the family but with first class French cuisine. We will definitely be back for another stay - hopefully later on in the year to try Chalet 1802 in the summer.


Thanks for looking after us so well. 5 Star treatment, we are probably 5lbs heavier. Chalet and company were great. We thoroughly chilled out even though the weather was in the 70s.


Thanks for an absolutely quality week! Great skiing, apres ski, drinking and dirty dancing. Really comfortable stay - great red sofa - afternoon teas - and top tucker Charlie. Vallee Blanche was very champagne moment - unmissable. We're great!!! Thanks for a brilliant week.


Cheers guys. Loved every minute. I can only apologise for Jez eating so much cheese. Great food, wine and more wine. Good luck.


Great location, lovely scenery, wonderful mountains, superb skiing - reds, blacks and off piste, amazing Vallee Blanche (a must do with Daniel the guide), lively town with good bars and cheeky dancing at arbate. Oh yeah, and Charlie and Daph and the chalet were pretty darn fine too! Many thanks for it all, keep dirty dancing.


Daph and Charlie the week has been terrible. Awful food, drink, company and skiing - even the music taste is crap. Hopefully we have given you some tops to improve your service... actually we wouldn't change a thing! Thank you so much for your kind hospitality. Best of luck for your plans in the future.

Lou and Ben

Thanks guys for an excellent week. Lovely food, great laughs, skiing and chauffeur service. Thanks for the Vallee Blanche effort.


Thanks for a fantastic stay! My first time in a proper chalet, and very nice too. Will try and improve my skiing and confidence before I come back next time so you fon't have to reassure me 10 times before I trust you to go down a new red or black run!! Keep up the good work.


Thankyou very much for a lovely holiday. The chalet is really nice and cosy. Food was delicious and very comfortable. Thank you very much.


Dream holiday. Shall be back here skiing in another few years when you have a network of your own chalets.


So well looked after by DAf and Charlotte. Chalet lovely. Many thanks for looking after us so well. Hopefully are back one day. Good luck with the new chalet adventure.


Great food, very well looked after, thanks alot.


WOnderful place.


Have only been here three days but it feels like a second home and I don't want to go!! Thanks for a great stay, the welcome, company and wonderful food plus all the little details which make it so special.


I can't write! Have a great season.


Food, company and skiing as good as the pole dancing! Thanks for another great hols.
