What our clients say

Great for children/teenagers with pool, bowling and ice dancing show all available in resort.
Mrs M ( 11 Apr 15 )
We thought Fermes des Samoens was excellent and Peak Retreats were the best ski company we have booked with. Thank you.
Mr C ( 04 Apr 15 )
The accommodation was great. We really liked the fact that our group were all housed together in a group of 3 apartments on one floor. 
Mr O ( 04 Apr 15 )
The accommodation was fantastic and the underground parking a great asset. We would have struggled to get to the lifts without the car as we went in April but there was a bus stop outside which was convenient.
Mrs G ( 04 Apr 15 )
The new staff at Fermes des Samoens are much friendlier than they used to be, which is a bonus.
Mr H ( 04 Apr 15 )
Accommodation was a bit of a hike from the main area of the resort, but other than that, very good.
Mr L ( 04 Apr 15 )
Excellently arranged as ever.
Mr R ( 04 Apr 15 )
What a help for Peak Retreats to organise all our travel and extras so diligently. They even organised train travel for us and kept us updated when there was disruption on the way back. Everything worked perfectly, and made the organisation of the holiday on our part a doddle.
Mrs F ( 04 Apr 15 )
The Bouc Blanc restaurant is great for a late afternoon drink stop before the final ski run back into La Tania. Unfortunately, I had an accident when another skier crashed into me. It is reassuring to know that the piste rescue service and treatment at the Meribel-Mottaret medical centre was really efficient. Also, Eurostar were helpful providing a wheelchair and queue priority for the whole family. I also visited the medical centre at La Tania where a lovely doctor helped me and was most keen for us to return to La Tania, even saying that they plan to open the medical centre 24 hours a day there next season - hoping I won't need that again though. Thanks to all at Peak Retreats who have responded to the few issues we had this time and sorted them out quickly. Also thanks for all the things that just go right anyway. Finally, the taxi driver who did our return transfer from La Tania to Moutiers was great and took me right to the door for Eurostar as I was on crutches.
Mrs T ( 04 Apr 15 )
Petit onion restaurant- excellent family meal out. Great food, kids menu and extremely friendly staff.
Mrs M ( 04 Apr 15 )
L'Amailly restaurant was great. Good food and service. Crepes in La Bouida were fab! Shop in village not particularly big so recommend either Tignes 1800 or Val d'Isere.
Mrs W ( 04 Apr 15 )
l'Etagne restaurant - excellent authentic mountain food. Don't miss the aperitif maison - Kir with violette! Great 2 for 1 crepe happy hour 4.30-5.30pm daily in La Bouquetin.
Mrs J ( 04 Apr 15 )
We had exceptional weather, it was good skiing and we did some sightseeing aswell. The forts are amazing.
Mrs T ( 04 Apr 15 )
If we were going again we would definitely stop off at Bourg Saint Maurice Super U and do a shop there first as naturally the little supermarkets at the resort are pricey. Also, I would recommend going for a real good mooch around the entire resort for a feel for who serves what food when. There was only one place (at the opposite end of the resort to Etoile des Cimes where there are a cluster of bars, restaurants, ski shops) that served food before 7pm and with two small children ravenous at 5.30 this is invaluable. It was the English run bar/pizza/easy food place. They were so friendly too.
Mrs A ( 04 Apr 15 )
L'Arcelle does excellent food, but you need to book ahead.
Mr S ( 04 Apr 15 )
Bar le savoie is really good value for meals.
Mrs S ( 04 Apr 15 )
La Bacchal was very good lovely little restaurant, our favourite meal was there, we ate at 2 other restaurants in the village. Only one small supermarket, great for morning croisssants, bakery etc, shopkeepers very friendly, but very limited choice and can be expensive.
Mrs D. ( 04 Apr 15 )
Chatel was the snowiest resort we've been to in spring. We arrived in a snow storm. The accommodation was the most comfortable we've enjoyed, with the added luxury of free access to the pool and sauna. The ski instructors were professional and friendly and we felt both our children were in good hands. There was also a reasonable choice of runs for the less capable parents, with plenty of mountain bars at the top of the lifts where we could enjoy a morning coffee before the first run of the day. The resort is a little more spread out than some so a car is useful, although there is a regular free ski bus. We'll definitely be returning to enjoy this delightful resort once more.
Mr C ( 04 Apr 15 )
The Snow Park is great fun even for a basic skier. I would say and the mountain restaurant next to this does the most amazing Chocolat Chauds!
Mrs J ( 04 Apr 15 )
Ski ESF in resort were excellent as always. Their instructor was great fun plus they achieved their final 3 star level! The instructors also do a torchlight decent in La Rosiere which is well worth attending. Great fun for the kids who can take part and very moving when you see the torches descending!
Mrs J ( 04 Apr 15 )
Flexi plus at the Eurotunnel was a very welcome surprise and much needed for the long journey.
Mr B ( 04 Apr 15 )
The Eurotunnel flexi plus was a real bonus and great service.
Mrs G ( 04 Apr 15 )
Good value, larger than expected accommodation, if anything too much snow for the time of year! But all very good.
Mrs W ( 28 Mar 15 )
This was the first time skiing for my 10, 7 and 6 year old boys. They absolutely loved it and I was travelling alone as my husband had to work. Everything was very close and easy to access. Ski school and private lessons were great. Boys were skiing red runs by the end of the week. The whole week was so well organised by Peak Retreats...I couldn't fault them at all. With the Aussois accommodation we stayed in the only think I would say is if it looks like you're not going to have great weather, pack enough gear for the kids as drying facilities are limited. But it wasn't a big drama just a matter of changing over items on the heated towel rails. Fantastic trip we will go again!!! many thanks
Mrs L ( 28 Mar 15 )
If I had to be critical, the only comment I could make was that the Chalet lacked a few basics such as large glasses, cheese grater and a spatula but the place itself was fabulous and the cinema was a god send for the children. There was not a lot of local information available in the chalet. Fabulous Chalet Isabelle and fabulous Samoens, though!
Mr T ( 28 Mar 15 )
We loved the pool/sauna etc and have recommended to two families already, who are coming with us next year. ;0)
Mrs W ( 28 Mar 15 )
The accommodation was very spacious and well appointed. Its location was very convenient for the gondola, supermarket and ski hire facilities.
Mr K ( 28 Mar 15 )
We only used the Hotel (Morillon) which is excellent and has all we need. Also used local friendly bar (Le Bon Coin).
Mrs P ( 28 Mar 15 )
Just a few words to say a massive thank you to all at Peak Retreats. We are just coming back from a family skiing week in Aussois and had a brilliant time. We can only praise the advice, help and friendliness of all the staff we dealt with all the way through the booking of our holiday. The level of service was impeccable. It would be hard for us to come up with any suggestion on how it could be improved. Aussois was ideal for the sort of skiing holiday we were after and we were very impressed by how helpful and friendly everybody was from the staff at Les Flocons d'Argent, La maison d'Aussois, ESF, ski hire shop to everybody in all the shops, bars and restaurants we went into. We are seriously considering going there again next year and will definitely get back to Peak Retreats.  Kind regards to all.
Mrs F ( 28 Mar 15 )
Thank you Peak Retreats for making our holiday booking very easy.
Mrs G ( 28 Mar 15 )
V helpful service overall. Useful advice.
Mrs R ( 28 Mar 15 )
All smooth, slick and well organised - The whole process was well managed from start to finish.
Mrs G ( 28 Mar 15 )
I was extremely impressed by the helpful staff at peak retreats, Marie Anne was our main rep - who found the perfect holiday for us as a family and went out of her way to help with all aspects of our booking. Thanks very much - will definitely use again if we can afford it next year!
Mrs M ( 28 Mar 15 )
Excellent service from Peak Retreats as always. Thanks for another great holiday - we will be back!
Mr H ( 28 Mar 15 )
We are really glad we used Peak Retreats, they were so helpful, it was so nice to have information sent through the post rather than having everything emailed! The flexi plus upgrade was amazing!The staff at the apartment were so helpful and friendly and the accommodation was fantastic. A great family holiday - thank you Peak Retreats.
Mrs R ( 28 Mar 15 )
Just back from fabulous week skiing in Aussois. Thank you! I cannot recommend you enough. Looking forward to next year already.
Mrs O ( 28 Mar 15 )
All bars / restaurants at the bottom of the slopes were good value for money, considering their position. As La Toussiere was a new resort to Peak Retreats, we weren't sure what to expect. But we were very happy with the resort and intend to return next year.
Mr J ( 28 Mar 15 )
Cosy cafe is excellent.
Mr L ( 28 Mar 15 )
Restaurant La Table de La Fare is great value and quality. The sports centre has a bowling alley - excellent fun! Getting around the resort is easy due to the escalators and walkways!
Mr W ( 28 Mar 15 )
Excellent authentic small French restaurant - Le Raisin D'Ours.
Mr M ( 28 Mar 15 )
La Cordee is a really nice restaurant with an absolutely fantastic view, nice classic mountain food and friendly staff.
Mr L ( 28 Mar 15 )
La Grange at Alpette & Restaurant Passoud on the Oz green run for lunch plus we loved the snack bar at the bottom of the Eidelweiss chair. Swimming & bowling were great fun.
Mrs C ( 28 Mar 15 )
Brilliant ice rink free with lift pass. Fabulous swim pool also free. Great little resort with easy access into Alpe dHuez.
Mr G ( 28 Mar 15 )
Restaurant Potee Oz was really lovely, amazing food with local specialities and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. 'Speed-Za' pizza delivery was a big hit with the kids, they will deliver to your apartment if you order more than 3, and the pizzas were yummy, they even do a chocolate one!
Mrs N ( 28 Mar 15 )
The Monty Luge was great for kids. Find out early when the cocco supermarket is doing meals - makes it easier to order in advance.
Mrs J ( 28 Mar 15 )
Bars du Vin excellent. Book early for final night dinner. Mixed weather made it a slightly more variable trip than the previous year but the resort for a young family (inc. two children in second week's skiing), accommodation, prior admin and especially the value for money was outstanding. Nevertheless we feel we have now 'done' this excellent little resort and will probably be looking for somewhere a little bigger/more cosmopolitan next year - hopefully with Peak Retreats. The whole booking/collection procedure went like clockwork again and I can see that this minimal but efficient approach benefits all parties. 
Mr H ( 28 Mar 15 )
The flocking bar in les eucherts was great. Fantastic service, very welcoming.
Mrs D ( 28 Mar 15 )
Underground parking would have been great if snowing earlier in season or when resort busy but we had no need for it at all because the week we went was quiet, which was great for lack of lift queues and space on the pistes.
Mr H. ( 28 Mar 15 )
Cafe Cosy was great and visit the cafe at the top of the mountain.
Mr S ( 28 Mar 15 )
Loved the food and friendly service at the Trans Alpin Italian restaurant. And the food and wine at Jamy is very good indeed. Turning up without booking can be risky even when the resort didn't feel that busy, these restaurants get busy.
( 28 Mar 15 )
l'Ecoelle and Chalet des Marmottes are our favourite restaurants.
Mrs G ( 28 Mar 15 )
La Potee d'Oz - excellent food and atmosphere/service.
Mrs C ( 28 Mar 15 )
There was a large group of us (60) returning to Peak Retreats for several years and we always find it difficult to find somewhere for us all to congregate. The reception area closing at 8 was an issue so we found a lovely bar at bottom of hill; very hospitable, opened early and had lush food! The waiter even came bowling with us at the end of week! 
Mrs R ( 28 Mar 15 )
We had a fabulous week in Les Carroz with our friends. We also thoroughly enjoyed our second stay in Les Chalets de Jouvence. Thank you for another wonderful holiday!
Mrs F ( 28 Mar 15 )
L'Etagne restaurant had a lovely ambience, an excellent menu and great service. Very family friendly.
Mrs S ( 28 Mar 15 )
Can not be beaten in value for money, resort does a fantastic job of grooming the slopes especially late season when you can still ski to door! Ski school and lifts are so close an excellent family choice especially for anyone on a budget, kids loved ESF, really lovely instructors both years that we have been. Staff on check in were a million times more friendly than last year, chose the flex channel tunnel option instead if ferry this year, will be doing so again next year - can't find anywhere to beat Val Cenis for value/experience. 
Mrs A ( 28 Mar 15 )
Very family friendly.
Mrs R ( 28 Mar 15 )
There were many rumours that the ESF wasn't great for younger children. Our experience totally refutes this! They were fantastic in Val Cenis Le Haut. Very professional, friendly, caring and English spoken. No tears from any of the children in the group. All children now can ski! We will be going back.
Mrs C ( 28 Mar 15 )
The taxi from Geneva train station and back was excellent.
Mrs M ( 28 Mar 15 )
Etoile de Neige is a good value, simple, friendly restaurant.
Mrs H ( 21 Mar 15 )
Brilliant resort and accommodation location for families with young/beginner children. Proximity of accommodation to the nursery slopes, ski school, ski hire, main lift, supermarket and restaurants could not have been better. Very short drive from the motorway - advantageous for car-sick prone passengers. Accommodation is compact and basic. ESF very friendly and helpful but very few English pupils. The village of Aussois is peaceful and charming. We'll return while the children are learning and then possibly look for a larger ski area.
Mrs B ( 21 Mar 15 )
We have had a fantastic time in St Gervais, in fact we extended our stay for two extra days as the hotel was in a great position, food very good and the weather ideal. Thank you for organising our stay. Bettex is an excellent resort for people looking for a quiet location, wonderful ski in ski out but would be too quiet for young people wanting some apres ski late in the evening. Next year we will have our own apartment in Les Gets which has been a dream for years, so please do not think we have fallen out with you! We will continue to recommend you to our friends.
Mrs H ( 07 Mar 15 )
Excellent resort for a family trip. Good facilities and family orientated resort with everything to hand. Massif area was perfect for beginners \ intermediate skiers - not too busy, nice wide pistes and little or no queues over the week for any lifts.
Mrs R ( 07 Mar 15 )
Advance booking of ski school for the children was really helpful - no queuing etc and just had to turn up at the designated meeting place - simple! Thanks.
Mrs R ( 07 Mar 15 )
Ski lessons were fantastic; the boys loved it. Amazing how much they learnt.
Mr H ( 28 Feb 15 )
The service at Kalinda Village was superb.
Mr V ( 14 Feb 15 )
Chalet de Flambeau is very well situated for skiing, and small local amenities, just a little to far from the village centre for local ambience. Excellent for small children: ski school, swimming pool, tobogganing.
Mrs V ( 14 Feb 15 )
The service at Kalinda Village was superb.
Mr V ( 14 Feb 15 )
The beds were extremely comfortable. Cooking utensils and equipment varies from apartment to apartment, but it is worth taking sharp knives and/or a knife sharpener, a soup maker, tea-towels, and hand towels.
Mrs B ( 14 Feb 15 )
Santa Terra was excellent. Great choice! Spa was fab.
Mrs M ( 14 Feb 15 )
The staff and food at the Hotel Alpen Roc were exceptional and the overall holiday experience renewed my faith in Peak Retreats. I am so glad that we booked again, despite a disappointing experience last year. This was far more akin to our first excellent experience in Morillon. Many thanks!
Mrs S ( 14 Feb 15 )
Wish to thank you for an excellent stay in Samoens, La Reine Des Pres. It was our second time and again we loved it, especially the alpine feel of the apartments.
Mr C ( 14 Feb 15 )
The check-in procedure at the apartments was great and the French receptionist was very pleasant.
Mrs S ( 14 Feb 15 )
The resort was great and the set-up fantastic for the four families because we were all located on the same floor. The children loved the fact that there was a pool and snooker table. Parents loved the whole set-up.
Mrs H ( 14 Feb 15 )
The hotel staff were especially caring and helpful when my wife was unwell.
Mr B ( 14 Feb 15 )
We have just arrived home safely and I wanted to email you immediately and thank you for recommending, sorting, supporting and organising a wonderful holiday! The apartment was fantastic with great service from all at Alpages! The flexi euro tunnel service amazing and your detailed preparation brilliant! A truly memorable holiday! To top it all, not a cloud in the sky! Thank you. We will definitely use Peak Retreats again and will recommend your service to everyone!
Anon ( 14 Feb 15 )
I would just like to say thank you to Peak Retreats for organising a fantastic holiday over the February half term 2015. We found that the service we received from Peak Retreats was excellent ! they were extremely helpful right from the very first phone call offering advice on where to go (as first time skiers, we had no idea!) right through to organising the lift passes, ski lessons, equipment hire a couple of weeks before we went. The recommendation to stay at Chalets de Flambeau was perfect for us, a family of 5 with children ranging from 13 to 7. It is well situated between two villages but has everything you need within walking distance. The actual apartment was beautiful, clean, spacious and had spectacular views from the balcony. Everything was extremely well organised..... from picking up the ski equipment, to the Ski lessons, to the lockers being just below the apartments, it was all so efficient!!! This holiday went above and beyond our expectations and we have already provisionally booked again for next year! Thank you for a great experience.
Mrs R ( 14 Feb 15 )
I just wanted to write to thank you so much for organising our ski holiday in Samoens. We had an absolutely brilliant time and we were so impressed with your level of service and communication. We had the 4 apartments at La Reine des Pres and the layout was perfect for all 4 families.  The fact we were all on the same floor meant we could come and go between apartments as if we were in one chalet. We will definitely look to book again with you next year.
Mrs H ( 14 Feb 15 )
As usual, Peak Retreats were faultless, we have come to simply expect that over the years, but it is worth noting in a review like this, as it should not be taken for granted. Vaujany is a lovely place, we would go back, and the skiing was great.
Mr W ( 14 Feb 15 )
We are always very pleased with the service we receive from Peak Retreats.
Mrs W ( 14 Feb 15 )
We organised all of our extras through Peak Retreats - the service was excellent and seamless. Lift pass, ski school and equipment hire all arranged for us and ready for collection without any hassle - excellent.
Mrs L ( 14 Feb 15 )
It was a bit difficult on the first morning knowing where exactly to go re the ski classes- maybe a bit more info how to get there from apartment and boot/ski hire place was quite a way from apartments. These are only little things just to make it a bit easier as overall I think Peak Retreats did a great job.
Mrs W ( 14 Feb 15 )
Liked the update emails before we went.
Mrs M ( 14 Feb 15 )
We found the Peak Retreats client twitter account useful for travel information. The emails regarding eurotunnel arrangements at half term were also very useful. We found montgenevre to be quiet for half term. The lifts are a bit slow which meant we didn't manage to ski the whole Milky Way but we really enjoyed Sestriere and Sansicario.
Mrs L ( 14 Feb 15 )
The staff were very efficient in dealing with all requests.
Mrs B ( 14 Feb 15 )
We had to arrange an extra set of ski hire at last minute and it was all sorted for us very smoothly- thank you.
Mrs G ( 14 Feb 15 )
Thank you to Steve for calm helpful advice as we headed home along the autoroute blanche in a snow storm and long, long traffic jam, realizing we would never make our ferry. He came back with different options and was able to move our ferry crossing to the next day taking the stress out of the situation. Wish we had also thought of asking him to book us extra accommodation for that night too, but we sorted it out OK.
Mrs M ( 14 Feb 15 )
Overall, we had a fabulous holiday and as ever, the service and information we received from the Peak Retreats team was excellent. 
Mrs S ( 14 Feb 15 )
We've already paid a deposit with you for next year - says it all. Robin
Mrs B ( 14 Feb 15 )
Le Copeaux restaurant is super- book up before you arrive though it gets very busy.
Mrs W ( 14 Feb 15 )
Mbc for après ski is recommended.
Mr L ( 14 Feb 15 )
L'Address - new restaurant and we thought by far the best in terms of both service and food/drink quality as well as excellent value.
Mr B ( 14 Feb 15 )
Tiny traditional village with direct lift/piste access and child-friendly bars and restaurants.
Mr G ( 14 Feb 15 )
Aussois is an excellent value for money resort for families. Our children had never skied before and within a matter of days they could ski. Nursery slopes were excellent. Access to the nursery slopes was to the rear of our accommodation which was so convenient. Peak Retreats were excellent and very helpful and the booking process was very efficient.
Mrs L ( 14 Feb 15 )
We love this resort. Very quiet, so don't go if you want a huge amount of night life.. you won't get it here. It has everything you need otherwise.
Mrs C ( 14 Feb 15 )
Great local market on Wednesdays.
Mrs S ( 14 Feb 15 )
La Grange D'Auguste restaurant in Lanslevillard - great food, friendly service, interesting place - been twice.
Mrs A ( 14 Feb 15 )
Le Grignott Snack/Bar Cafe does great Omelettes, burgers and Steaks. Very reasonable prices and a very friendly owner. Cafe Cosy does nice Crepes and coffee. The Piste Luge area is great for kids and dads!
Mr M ( 14 Feb 15 )
Nice small family resort with plenty of intermediate skiing. Skiing for beginners a bit limited. Lovely lunchtime places on the slopes.
Mr D ( 14 Feb 15 )
Ski across to Italy for lunch - it's a lot cheaper to eat there!
Mrs G ( 14 Feb 15 )
Great for beginners.
Mr B ( 14 Feb 15 )
Supermarket (Sherpa) is very well stocked although it was not peak season so that probably helped. L'Beu is a must for the end of the day - good beer and vin chaud!! Lovely quiet resort, minimal queues at the lifts even when the ski schools are meeting. Good links to the Grand Massif and the blue run Sairon back down to Les Esserts is a lovely end to the day.
Mr P ( 14 Feb 15 )
Union express supermarket had the best fruit and veg.
Mrs M ( 14 Feb 15 )
We love the village feel. There are nice boulangeries for parties and you feel you are in France, not a "resort" that could be anywhere. It is also well situated as you are about 20 mins drive from the Carrefour at the bottom of the mountain so prices are not extortionate in the village.
Mrs H ( 14 Feb 15 )
Fantastic experience. Have already booked to return next year! Resort was perfect for us as a family with young children new to skiing. Not for those who want a nightlife. Quiet resort which was just what we wanted :-)
Mrs R ( 14 Feb 15 )
All the restaurants are great and the new wine bar/tapas bar is a great addition.
Mrs K ( 14 Feb 15 )
Le Bergerie restaurant can cater gluten free. There are no gluten free groceries available in the supermarkets, ie pasta, flour, so take with you.
Mrs P ( 14 Feb 15 )
Vaujany is perfect for very young children/absolute beginners and competent skiers. It lacks easy greens and blues for intermediate skiers. The blues are wide but a couple of steep slopes make them challenging. Our flat was amazing (Les Epinettes) so the quality of the accommodation was high. Don't bother getting a pass to the Grand Domaine, which includes Alpes d'Huez, if you're not a competent, keen skier. The connection is there, but you need to be at a good level to make it work. The resort itself is very friendly and the staff at the ecole de ski, in the shops, etc are helpful and welcoming. We stayed in St Sorlin d'Arves last year and (maybe because St Sorlin is higher and there is more abundant snow in the resort itself) liked the atmosphere better. Our children enjoyed St Sorlin more, simply because there was more snow to play with outside our front door. Let's face it, when you're a child, snowball fights, making snowmen, etc are just as exciting as the skiing itself - if not more so! However, Vaujany has its pluses: easy to access, sunny situation, amazing facilities (ice rink and swimming pool and easy rides to and from the pistes), and welcoming people who want you to have an excellent stay.
Mrs A ( 14 Feb 15 )
If going at half term book any restaurants before you go. Le Serac excellent.
Mrs Q ( 14 Feb 15 )
Le Jamy restaurant - friendly staff, fantastic service and good food. Pierrade particularly good.
Mrs L ( 14 Feb 15 )
Genepi Restaurant - best restaurant in La Rosiere, worth splashing out for a special meal, children were made welcome too. Bowling and ice skating in Les Eucherts a fun break from skiing. Sledging off the forest track which runs between Les Eucherts and La Rosiere.
Mrs S ( 14 Feb 15 )
Le Don Camillo is a must.
Mr N ( 14 Feb 15 )
La Taniere excellent for families.
Mr S ( 14 Feb 15 )
Restaurants - Caesar, La Capitaine recommended. Do the Luge up the top of the Chalvet Telecabine.
Mrs W ( 14 Feb 15 )
Chez Marcel was a great restaurant with good food and really friendly staff.
Mrs G ( 14 Feb 15 )
We had a lovely time, the skiing was great and the resort was fabulous.  
Mrs H ( 14 Feb 15 )
The hot box restaurant is recommended.
Mrs L ( 14 Feb 15 )
I would definitely recommend Table de la Fare - we had two excellent meals here.
Mrs O ( 14 Feb 15 )
La Saucisse sells delicious plat du jour to heat in the apartment as well as many other lovely, tasty things to eat!
Mrs T ( 14 Feb 15 )
The Oak Barrel pub very welcoming and friendly with excellent food and WiFi. Great location for slopes with virtually ski to door access and a wide variety of pistes.
Mrs C ( 14 Feb 15 )
Le Graal Pub is recommended.
Mrs C ( 14 Feb 15 )
Le Diavolo is a good family restaurant. 
Mr C ( 14 Feb 15 )
A super resort for families and excellent value for money.
Mr S ( 14 Feb 15 )
A great family resort with excellent on piste dinning options. Evening options in Morillon 1100 are limited.
Mr W ( 14 Feb 15 )
Good small supermarket but can get initial supplies from larger supermarket just off the main road in the near by town.
Mrs S ( 14 Feb 15 )
Le Graal and Le Jamy are both fab places to eat. We would recommend Mongenevre, it was our second year and was a fabulous holiday. Peak Retreats were fully attentive right up to the day of arrival.
Mrs C ( 14 Feb 15 )
Every bar and restaurant we went to in Val Cenis was excellent and I would recommend all of them in the resort. We will definitely be booking Val Cenis through Peak Retreats again next year.
Mrs F ( 14 Feb 15 )
Make sure you book the restaurants in advance of your holiday. We were lucky to get any tables at all during half term. All the restaurants were excellent. We want to keep St Foy a secret so don't tell too many people how wonderful it is! 
Mrs G ( 14 Feb 15 )
We had a very good and reasonably priced meal at Chez Felix - creperie/restaurant in Vallandry.
Mr R ( 14 Feb 15 )
Would highly recommend that you book a couple of good restaurants either before you leave or on day of arrival. At half term it's obviously super busy.
Mrs G ( 14 Feb 15 )
Excellent as a family ski resorts. Not a large number of bars, so may not appeal to young couples.
Mrs M ( 14 Feb 15 )
The Super U super market located across the road from the apartment and a restaurant called 'Altitude 850' in the Hight street at Maurice are recommended.
Mrs P ( 14 Feb 15 )
Sabot de Venus Restaurant very good.
Mr S ( 14 Feb 15 )
Airelles restaurant next to Chalet les Jouvence, Les Carroz was excellent. A little pricey but well worth the last night occasion!
Mr F ( 14 Feb 15 )
First class service in every respect.
Mr P ( 14 Feb 15 )
ESF ski instructor was the best we have ever had - absolutely fantastic.
Mrs C ( 14 Feb 15 )
Airport transfer firm was excellent.
Mr T ( 14 Feb 15 )
Flexi plus was invaluable on our return at the end of half term - without it we would have been waiting for ages in the overflow car park at the terminal and not just for the uk passport control. Would not have wanted to have holiday without it!
Mrs P ( 14 Feb 15 )
The Eurotunnel Flexi plus was excellent. I have never gotten through soo smoothly!!! Very happy!
Mrs M ( 14 Feb 15 )
The Flexiplus was awesome given how busy on both travel days Eurotunnel were we breezed through and were treated very well by Eurotunnel's staff on both sides of the channel.
Mr A ( 14 Feb 15 )
Always have used flexi pass as it is a fab feature of the Eurotunnel journey.
Mrs C ( 14 Feb 15 )
Would love to know more about the Snow Train in future. We found the train a revelation and would definitely book again but would like more advance notice as soon as seats become available. We took the train from London and changed in Paris but a direct route would be preferable!
Mrs G ( 14 Feb 15 )
Taxi arranged from Cluses was excellent. Comfortable and punctual.
Mrs G ( 14 Feb 15 )
Much appreciated well heated 25m swimming pool in Combloux apartments.
Mr S ( 07 Feb 15 )
Our 17 year old son had a fantastic time in ESF class 4 doing off piste skiing!
Mrs W ( 07 Feb 15 )
A delightful, very friendly resort.  Excellent, thoughtful accommodation.
Mrs R ( 31 Jan 15 )
Peak Retreats' staff were friendly, informed, helpful and provided top quality customer service.
Mrs R ( 31 Jan 15 )
The mini-supermarket next to Les Flocons is good and the manager speaks good English. Excellent bread and croissants too. The same applies to the Ballontins restaurant in the complex. Good food and good with children.
Mr D ( 31 Jan 15 )
Pizza and fondue at Le Poirier was great.
Mrs T ( 31 Jan 15 )
Excellent resort for a family holiday.
Mrs M ( 31 Jan 15 )
The accommodation was first class.
Mr R ( 24 Jan 15 )
I thought the staff I dealt with at Peak Retreats were very pleasant and professional.
Mrs K ( 24 Jan 15 )
I would definitely recommend the evening meal package in La Bergerie, good food and excellent value for money.
Mrs D ( 24 Jan 15 )
'Sabot de Venus' restaurant is very good. Outa and Escale bars are very welcoming, and reasonably-priced.
Mr H ( 24 Jan 15 )
The taxi/ transfer company were excellent and provided much more useful information about the resort than anyone in the Tourist Information! Thank you to them.
Mrs K ( 24 Jan 15 )
My group has obviously now returned from our skiing in Les Saisies and I can confirm we had a wonderful time. May I thank you and all your staff for all the arrangements you made on our behalf. The airport transfer was efficient and punctual with very competent drivers. The accommodation, ski passes, ski hire and ski school vouchers all secured our arrangements as requested. Prior warning--I think quite a good number of people wish to return next year !! Once again very grateful thanks for all your work on our behalf.
Mr G ( 17 Jan 15 )
Easy and prompt service to book extras over the phone at Peak Retreats.
Mrs W ( 17 Jan 15 )
Very easy to deal with with fabulous customer service. I had a query whilst on holiday and it was resolved within 30 minutes. I could not ask for better customer service, delighted.
Mr R ( 17 Jan 15 )
This resort is good for beginners or for families with young children as it is very quiet. If you have a car, you can stock up on a lot of groceries by going to the carrefour in the town below, about 40 mins drive down the mountain. The apartment is very nicely laid out and with good equipment. Ski chair was very close by so easy to walk to.
Mrs P ( 17 Jan 15 )
All restaurants were excellent. The Olymp bar would be the liveliest. The mountain twister is excellent fun and the new Sports Centre adds some activities. Les Saisies is an excellent resort for families and couples. The skiing for beginners and intermediates in particular is varied and the resort is extending its area with new runs and lifts each year. The accommodation at Le Village les Lapons is very convenient for the slopes.
Mr G ( 17 Jan 15 )
4 Epices restaurant in Saint Gervais village is recommended.
Mrs R ( 17 Jan 15 )
Le Marmotte is excellent, I'Ancole was also very good contrary to some unfair and unkind things we read on trip advisor.
Mr C ( 17 Jan 15 )
Kids loved torchlight descent. Shop at Intermarche nearby, cheaper than Sherpa.
Mrs K ( 17 Jan 15 )
Tapas bar was fab - well worth a visit.
Mrs G ( 17 Jan 15 )
All ski extras arranged were excellent. I had a group of 43 people so it was extremely important that all arrangements were efficient.
Mr G ( 17 Jan 15 )
Good value accommodation in perfect location for ski lift but also easy walk into town.
Mrs H ( 10 Jan 15 )
Very good; had to arrange bigger accommodation after booking as more of the family decided to come.
Mrs S ( 10 Jan 15 )
Excellent office staff!!
Mr B ( 10 Jan 15 )
Just to say how impressed we are with the company, especially when we were caught up in the w/e of the Eurotunnel being closed due to a fire. They called us on our journey, to check we were ok. We had made our own alternative plans but they were phoning to give us assistance and advice on alternative ferry arrangements. They called us the next day to check we had arrived home safely and to tell us to send in our receipt for payments to P&O, and that they would sort it out with Eurotunnel. This they did promptly and we were repaid quickly. Could not praise Peak Retreats more highly! Thank you.
Mrs M ( 10 Jan 15 )
Le Ferme de Oz was an excellent, friendly restaurant.
Mrs B ( 10 Jan 15 )
Vincents wine bar is recommended.
Mrs P ( 10 Jan 15 )
Alpage and Cremaillere very good restaurants.
Mrs M ( 10 Jan 15 )
The Sherpa supermarket was useful, well-stocked and friendly - on the expensive side though. Boulangerie Tiffanie has excellent bread and croissants. Our favourite restaurant was La Tornalta - but it is quite small and you need to book. Mezzanine restaurant over-priced for what you get although the food was good.
Mrs H ( 10 Jan 15 )
Bar - Aspen Café, restaurants - Serac, Septemontain, Tornalta, Clarins - all exellent.
Mr G ( 10 Jan 15 )
A Village for people who aren't look for a wild nightlife. All restaurants very good.
Mrs B ( 10 Jan 15 )
Polar bear bar, smokey joes and the red frog all recommended.
Mrs A ( 10 Jan 15 )
Very efficiently arranged.
Mrs P ( 03 Jan 15 )
Having used your firm several times I must say that it is always a pleasure to deal with you, staff are very good at their job and having the ski school and equipment arranged for the beginners made life simple for them. Very useful having the passes sent out before the holiday. Everything went as expected. Keep up the good work.
Mr S ( 03 Jan 15 )
Advice such as waiting until in resort to purchase lift pass for 7 year old as he would not need one straight away was great - nice not to be sold things for the sake of it! Appreciate the expertise in the advice.
Mr R ( 03 Jan 15 )
Le Gron restaurant was fabulous.
Mr W ( 03 Jan 15 )
I think La Toussuire may have been a new resort for Peak Retreats as people in ski school office and lift pass office were a bit confused and couldn't find our reservations to begin with. However they were very friendly and in the end everything was sorted out. There is a small ESF office in the building next to the apartment and it would be good if ski school information and passes could be picked up from there. Ski school itself was excellent with excellent and fun instructors. The same thing happened at lift office where initially they couldn't find reservations. Overall though resort was very good and there were absolutely no queues at the lifts.
Mr W ( 03 Jan 15 )
The polar bear pub, one to visit!!
Mrs M ( 03 Jan 15 )
Graal Bar best in town.
Mr J ( 03 Jan 15 )
Tea 4 2, the little pizzeria and bakery in Morillon 1100 is fantastic. Very friendly, pizza available from 5pm - great for children and cakes to die for. Free wifi too. Most restaurants didn't start serving meals until 7pm which was far too late for us with hungry 7 & 4 year olds that had been skiing all day. We tended to cook in at night and eat out, or take a packed lunch in the day. Bit disappointed to find this out only when we arrived, but is usual in France it would seem.
Mr R ( 03 Jan 15 )
Dining at The Lodge was exceptional. Also Marquise for lunch up the mountain.
Mrs D ( 03 Jan 15 )
Vallorcine is a good base for the Chamonix Valley and for trips to Verbier in Switzerland (approx. 1 hour away). Spacious accommodation.
Mr J ( 03 Jan 15 )
Mezzanine restaurant is recommended.
Mrs E ( 03 Jan 15 )
Our young boys thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to go up to the mountain restaurant at night on the ski-lifts and the food was fantastic. The whole place was a perfect size and extremely friendly. I would highly recommend the place for young families.
Mrs R ( 03 Jan 15 )
Try to pick up lift passes day before as long walk between ski hire, lift pass office and ski school. View from apartment swimming pool is brilliant.
Mr W ( 03 Jan 15 )
With a roof box, our car was too high to be able to make the most of the refreshments offered as part of Flexi-Plus at the Eurotunnel and this was the same last year. All said, however, the flexi-plus ticket is a great option.
Mrs R ( 03 Jan 15 )
Chalet was lovely and warm; plenty of hot water, comfortable beds, adequate equipment for self catering and nice sauna.
Mrs M ( 27 Dec 14 )
A big thanks to the team @ Peak Retreats for their skilled provision of information before during and now after our trip.
Anon ( 27 Dec 14 )
A great service thanks
Mrs M ( 27 Dec 14 )
Excellent Service from the Team!
Mrs B ( 27 Dec 14 )
We would like to thank all those at Peak Retreats who organised our skiing trip for us. It was a difficult group to deal with, aged between 4 months and 63 years, but everyone was very happy with the holiday. The apartment in the Chalets du Neige at Oz en Oisans was large, warm and well equipped. Small problems such as a broken window and a shortage of light bulbs were sorted straight away.
Mrs M ( 27 Dec 14 )
The take out pizza, rotisserie chicken from the shop adjoining the accommodation were high quality and not expensive. The Hameau des Airelles is also suitable if you want to return for lunch to the apartment which is great for families.
Mr C ( 27 Dec 14 )
Au Pekin was good, slightly different. Le Bistrot de la Paix, nice meal, good atmosphere (assuming you can understand some French).
Mr G ( 27 Dec 14 )
I would recommend the restaurants up the mountain for lunch (take the daily special) and also the pizza place opposite the ski hire shop does excellent stone baked pizzas to take away.
Mr M ( 27 Dec 14 )
La Vache was a friendly bar / pizza place for lunchtime with the children.
Mrs M ( 27 Dec 14 )
Take advantage of the spit roast chicken for sale from the supermarket under Les Flocons - yummy.
Mrs G ( 27 Dec 14 )
Graal Grill, good food and value for money.
Mrs D ( 27 Dec 14 )
La Vanoise restaurant was welcoming and we had a lovely family meal there with friendly service - would recommend a visit. Chalets des Flambeau - use the morning service for fresh croissants & pastries! Kids loved the snowtubing at the top of the Solert chair lift - free with your ski pass! Great fun :)
Mrs E ( 27 Dec 14 )
It's great for those who like a traditional small village which is generally peaceful and quiet.
Mr P ( 27 Dec 14 )
The New Years Eve firework celebrations in the village were perfectly pitched for all the family to enjoy.
Mrs W ( 27 Dec 14 )
La Cloche is a lovely traditional savoie restaurant, excellent value and friendly owners.
Mrs D ( 27 Dec 14 )
The cow pub is fab!
Mrs R ( 27 Dec 14 )
La pizza restaurant, food on the slopes was a lot cheaper than other resorts I have been to. Cracking resort,very traditional and pretty. Peak Retreats were very helpful and informative when we got stuck in the snow that fell over Christmas.
Mr R ( 27 Dec 14 )
Transfer got us there safe in bad conditions!
Mr G ( 27 Dec 14 )
Ski-hire in Aussois opened early Sunday to cope with all the people who missed collected gear on the Saturday due to the bad weather. Couldn't ask for anything more.
Mr S ( 27 Dec 14 )
The flexibility pass on the Eurotunnel is excellent value for money, and providing the passport control is not held up, it makes for a quick travel.
Mrs H ( 27 Dec 14 )
Eurotunnel flexi pass is excellent, even when it was the most busiest time of the year.
Mrs H ( 27 Dec 14 )
Chalet Flambeau was very nice - a 3 bedroom chalet would have been nice as there was 5 of us but we managed. It would be good to know in advance about the type of coffee machine which takes specific sachets. The pool was lovely but rather cold as were the showers there. The sauna and steam rooms were great. We are so grateful that Peak Retreats were able to swap us to Val Cenis instead of Chatel at the last minute due to the lack of snow as there was plenty on the upper slopes and we had a great time.
Mr B ( 20 Dec 14 )
Reservations team were fantastic at helping reorganise alternative ferry after snow and traffic chaos in France on return journey. Thanks.
Mrs O ( 20 Dec 14 )
The holiday was perfect for our requirements and was entirely based on the recommendation from Peak Retreats. We rang Peak Retreats from the resort to arrange en route accommodation for the return journey and the service was efficient and excellent. Thank you.
Mrs Q ( 20 Dec 14 )
Really nice week - snow arrived as we did - the lovely Vicki at PR was great to talk to and helped steady my nerves regarding the poor snow conditions on the Tuesday before we were due to travel.
Mr S ( 20 Dec 14 )
Thanks for the message. Congratulations to the taxi organised by yourselves that safely delivered us to La Rosiere late last night, from Chambery airport. The driver had innumerable opportunities to give up, but persevered, and although the journey took 6 hours in appalling conditions he managed it and with good humour. We thanked him personally, but it might be useful if you also passed on our appreciation to his Company. We've never seen so much snow fall in such a short period, and hopefully there's more than sufficient to last for many weeks to come!
Anon ( 20 Dec 14 )
Lovely meal at Pizzeria la Vanoise, much more than just Pizza but a drive from the apartments. Food in Mountain restaurant reasonable too, even for xmas day!
Mr G ( 20 Dec 14 )
La Table de Fifine provided an amazing Christmas Eve dinner.
Mr L ( 20 Dec 14 )
The cheese shop in Oz Station is excellent.
Mrs H ( 20 Dec 14 )
Le Cellier - amazing food cooked on an open fire.
Mrs G ( 20 Dec 14 )
The nursery is excellent.
Mr C ( 20 Dec 14 )
Restaurant Locates at the resort was great. Very friendly, lovely food.
Mrs N ( 20 Dec 14 )
La Bergerie good for evening meals. Good lunches at La Maison.
Mrs A ( 20 Dec 14 )
The taxi driver got us to our departure on time despite severe weather and poor driving conditions on Sat morning.
Mrs S ( 20 Dec 14 )
ESF were great, my Son went from complete beginner to a blue run in one week. Use the ski hire with Peak Retreats, the locker facilities they offer are a life saver, leave all the skis there at the end of the day.
Mrs S ( 20 Dec 14 )
Friendly and attentive staff at Morillon 1100 Sport 2000 hire shop.
Mrs R ( 20 Dec 14 )
The Flexiplus system was fantastic; we travelled on peak dates over Christmas/New Year and did not experience any delays.
Mrs W ( 20 Dec 14 )
Flexi plus Channel Tunnel ticket is excellent.
Mr B ( 20 Dec 14 )
Le Jamy and Le Refuge restaurants were excellent, both serving superb local specialities. The local Cocci supermarket was so convenient and had an excellent deli, selling delicious homemade lasagne, quiches and much more besides. We didn't actually cook from scratch on any night - no need to! Take away pizza right next door as well, made to order. Can't remember the name but the hotel bar on the left hand side as you ski in towards the Chalet des Dolines has a snack bar which did a delicious panini burger.
