Chalet Le Dragon Reviews 20th March 2017

Reviews – w/c 20th March 2017

Another great ski holiday at Chalet le Dragon!!

We returned to the chalet for the 2nd year running as we were so impressed the first time round. Matt and Emma are both very welcoming and make you feel instantly at home.

The chalet is spotlessly clean and has all the amenities needed for snowy evening in, a TV with lots of channels, books, magazines and games. The beds are really comfy and the showers were always hot and powerful even with 10 of us staying.

The hot tub was a big hit – sipping drinks whilst taking in the mountain view was ideal after a day on the slopes.

Now onto the food – you will not go hungry!! Every meal was enormous and delicious.

There is plenty of skiing in the area but it is quite spread around. Luckily Matt is on hand to do the pick ups and drop offs and can offer advice as to the best places to ski for your ability.
All in all, a great place to stay whether you are skiing or not.

Home from home in the snow

A big thank you to Matt, Emma and Emily for looking after the 10 of us again. If you want a warm welcome, relaxed atmosphere and cracking good and hospitality then look no further than Chalet Le Dragon. Matt was again very accommodating with the various pick up and drop off locations for our group with mixed abilities and needs. If you are looking for a great holiday then get booking!

Fabulous week at Chalet le Dragon

As a group of 10 we had a wonderful week staying with Matt and Emma. The Chalet is lovely and everything you could want for mountain coziness. They have thought of everything to make it an easy and relaxed holiday. The food was incredible and having the hot tub with an amazing view after a day on the piste was very luxurious. Thank you!!

Great Reviews 2017 for Chalet Le Dragon

At Chalet Le Dragon, Portes du Soleil, we pride ourselves on the ski holidays that we provide for our clients. From “booking to cooking” we take care of every detail for our clients; including lift passes, ski hire, restaurant suggestions, ski route planning, tailored menus, airport transfers and of course the all inclusive beer and wine.

Our family run and very homely ski chalet, is conveniently located in the Portes du Soleil, and is a great base for your next ski holiday in the French Alps.

Don’t take our word for it…here are the reviews from our last few guests…

“Falling in love with skiing again” – stayed half-term 2017
We cannot thank Matt, Emma and Emily enough for a fantastic holiday. The chalet was perfect, homely and welcoming. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed. The ski hire was the easiest we have ever had in many years of skiing. Matt’s daily drop off and pick up at the slopes was a godsend! Coming back to the chalet for tea and delicious cake was a real treat at the end of the day as we’re the delicious dinners that were prepared for us. We have fallen in love with skiing again and hope to return to Chalet le Dragon again.

“Absolutely Amazing” – stayed New Year 2016/17
Words can’t express how much we enjoyed our New Year break at the best catered chalet that we have stayed in Matt, Emma & Emily went out of their way to make us feel at home in what is a superb luxury property Excellent service, excellent food & excellent chalet Thanks for an amazing break.

“Great Holiday” – stayed December 2016
I’ve been going on ski chalet holidays since the mid 90s, and I can honestly say this was the best chalet I have stayed at. Accommodation : Spacious rooms , lots of storage space for all your gear, modern bathrooms with multijet power showers , abundant squashy sofas to snuggle up on at the end of the day; and a lovely jacuzzi to massage your aching limbs . Ran by owners Matt and Emma, you can see the extra thought that has been put into making this chalet a home from home – little touches like the multi socket British extension leads , hairdryers , large quantities of toiletries in every bedroom. Food and drink – I usually have to pay for my soft drinks / beer in chalets, while everyone else drinks the free wine ( I don’t drink wine as I suffer badly from wine flu ) – but not here – it’s all included . Great for the kids too, they loved the unlimited included soft drinks. Emma’s cakes and desserts were amazing , and Matt is a great cook. Emily looked after us well in the mornings , being very flexible with breakfast times etc., and was generally very pleasant , helpful and happy throughout our stay . Matt also arranged our private transfers , ski hire ( it came to us – no nightmares in the ski hire shop this year ) and private snowboarding lessons for our kids with Martin at Torr , who was also brilliant . The only downside is that any future chalet holiday is going to seem a bit poor in comparison . I’m booking in for next year as soon as hubby tells me when he has got annual leave . Brilliant place , we loved it , wish I had found it years ago.

Is there really no snow in the alps part 2

So another series of articles hit the newsstand yesterday about the poor snow in the alps including Bloomberg and the Washington Post!! … and yet again I would challenge the articles as we have been out skiing around Chatel and Avoriaz without issue. Agreed, the full area isn’t quite open but more opened today including some of Super Chatel, Lac de Vonne links and Cret Beni in La Chapelle.

Trust us, we live here all year round and can say honestly that the pistes are lovely, the weather gloriously sunny and the forecast snowy conditions are very exciting for the coming days.

Here are some more skiing photos from today…
