About STEVEN GRESTY
Steven Gresty I live with my family in the West Midlands. As a family we have skied for some 35 years so we know what we are looking for in a skiing holiday. Chalet Gresty is a perfect base for some of the best guaranteed skiing in the world. Our chalet is a home from home experience for us, as we do appreciate the creature comforts, we therefore have it furnished and fitted out to the highest standard we are accustomed to and expect. We find on the occasional evenings after a great day skiing, nothing better than a glass of wine, dinner and a possible second glass or two, then settle down to a good movie in front of a cosy log fire, or relax in the sauna or hot tub to warm up those aching muscles, before retiring to a very comfortable bed to recharge the batteries for the next day, skiing in a great resort. You won't be disappointed !
STEVEN GRESTY purchased this Chalet in 2007

With a great kitchen, log fire, sauna and an excellent hot tub, this is a fantastic chalet that was perfect four our two families. Steve was great before and during our stay with useful information, and locally Karen was superb and really helpful throughout our stay. The chalet is on the outskirts of the town, and there is a ski bus that stops opposite the chalet, however it only runs twice in the morning and afternoon, but you can also drive as there is plenty of free parking. St Martin is a great resort with quick links into the system and even in the half term week did not seem overly busy at the main lift.
clean spacious and well apointed
The chalet is very comfortable with everything one could wish for, the jacuzzi was especially welcome after a hard days skiing. The owner, Steve, is especially good at keeping us informed and communicating all the little things that make for a good stress free holiday. Great chalet.
Un chalet toujours aussi agréable et une semaine parfaite de neige.
On ne pouvait pas rêver mieux.
Herve Philippe really pleased you enjoyed your stay - 5* clients welcome back anytime

We had some nice days in the chalet
Great chalet, many lovely details, good facilities (esp. the kitchen) and nice contact person (Karen). Distance to the lift is a bit too far to walk (about 1 km) - we drove by car, which was also no problem, as there are many parking lots in the village. Thanks!
