We were a party of 8 peopletaking the whole chalet. 4 children and 4 adults.Kids ranging in age from 3 to 12.We stayed at the chalet from 28th Dec 09 to 4th Jan 10 and were there for the skiing.
FIrstly i do not usually leave reviews for any trips or hotels that i stay at.But i felt on this occasion i had to leave a review as Nick and his family deserves a very big thank you for all there efforts to make our stay an enjoyable one.This was no small task as we had booked this as a New Year treat and was our first Family ski trip and guess what NO SNOW!First time in 20 years Nick informed us.
The Chalet is exactly as described and to be perfectly honest better than described.Nick looks after you from the minute you get off the plane when he picks you up to the minute he dropped you off for your flight home.I did read all the reviews which were already posted and thought that they couldn't be all true but they were.It is as good as all the posts say it is.
Nik organized everything ski's, lessons ,where to eat on a night and everything inbetween.
A normal day for us was Breakfast made by his lovely wife mariana,off to the slopes for limited skiing due to the lack of snow,Nick would then help us with passes our ski's etc and when we were ready would set about giving all in the party who want help lessons then lunch and a drinks break before more skiing and more lessons for all from Nick, when we were aching and tired back to the Chalet for an Apres coffee and cake and after a rest and relax and a couple of beers from the honest bar it was a off to a restaurant in samakov for a fantastic (and cheap) meal,then a lift back to the chalet.
Due to the lack of snow this first ski holiday could have been a disaster.However due to nick and his families hospitality it was a great holiday enjoyed by all.We'll be back next year for more of the same and this time hopefully with some snow.
The chalet was also kept immaculatly clean.
I cannot reccomend this chalet enough.As i said at the top treat yourself and rent this chalet.
