Client Reviews

Just to say what a fabulous week we had at Grand Bornand. The accommodation was excellent, so well equipped. Great atmosphere in the village, really friendly & welcoming people around in the ski shop, mountain bars etc. Slightly worried at first as raining at the lower altitude & real spring snow but it snowed at night & later in the week & we had great powder to enjoy. Thanks to you all.

Mrs O
April 2017

It is easy to ski/take ski lifts across to Val d'sere so it is definitely worth getting a ski pass for etc who area (not just Tignes).

 The cafe at the bottom of the Col Madeleine run is the best for food/seating and views of the ski area.

Mrs B

The supermarket on site is incredibly well stocked and reasonable for the quality and convenience. 

Mrs B

Easy access to La Rosiere from Les Eucherets with a lovely walkway.  Some nice bars and restaurants in both areas. The Grange in Les Eucherets was our favourite restaurant. Good quality food and friendly service with a good menu.

A great family resort.

Mr T
April 2017

The main restaurant at the top of the gondola Vieux Moulin was excellent - and another great find was the the restaurant at the junction of Arcelles and Solert- it had wonderful views from its suntrap deck. Recommend heading into Lanslebourg for shopping, especially the fantastic butchers.

Mrs H
April 2017

Best mountain restaurants - Chalet D'Clair, Morillon and La Pente a Jules, Flaine. Sledges can be borrowed from Chalets de Jouvence reception along with fondue sets etc.

The White Deer pizzeria was an excellent new addition. This is the sixth time that we have gone to this resort, I think you can judge from that just how much we like it.

Mrs F

My self and my two daughters aged 15 and 10 enjoyed a fantastic skiing holiday at Aussois. I had not skied for a number of years and my two daughters had never skied before and by the end of the week we were all skiing down the mountain on blue runs. The highlights were fantastic weather, fantastic ski school and a friendly welcoming town with a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Thank you Peak Retreats for finding such a gem. 

Mrs L
February 2017

Thank you ! We will certainly give you a call next time we are thinking of organising a group ski trip.

Mr F

Ste Foy is a great little resort in its own right, but really good as a base for visiting the mega resorts of the Tarentaise valley.

Mr E
February 2017

Fantastic resort all round for family skiing experience. Ski school for children exceptionally good... my two daughters had never skied before and by the end of the week we were all skiing down the mountain on blue runs. The highlights were fantastic weather, fantastic ski school and a friendly welcoming town with a lovely relaxed atmosphere.

The holiday, accommodation and resort were superb. We think Peak Retreats are great and it's nice to see good accommodation being offered in the Alps.

Mr C, Peisey-Vallandry

Mrs W

Four restaurants well worth a visit in Samoëns include: Aux Becs à Fleu, La Tornalta, Le Serac & La Louisiane. Our favourite restaurant on the piste is L'Anfionne in neighbouring Les Carroz. It's located opposite the Télésiège at the end of the Plein Soleil blue ski run.  Favourite bar in Samoëns is The Aspen Bar. This resort has everything for families, skiers and non skiers alike. Skiers can access all of the neighbouring ski resorts from Samoëns.

Mrs D
February 2017

Great for families and beginner/intermediate skiers. Resort centre is nice, sweet local restaurants and bowling/ice skating, kids loved it.

Mrs A

Flexiplus ticket on Eurotunnel is essential, it saves a significant amount of time, takes pressure off having to make a certain time and food provided is very good.

Mr S

Mr P
February 2017

Great for children & families, excellent value compared to the bigger ski areas.

Le Cosy is a fun bar selling crepes. L'Etagne is by far the best restaurant.

Mr T
February 2017

L'Etagne and Les Barillions restaurants are excellent but need booking.  These are by far the better restaurants in the village. Snow Tubbing is great fun and the kids have a ball.

Mr S
February 2017

The local of apartments to the slopes is great. Al dente in the apartment blocks had really good take away pizza and spoke excellent english. We used the eskimo ski pass, need to prebook transfers to other resorts and they only go to one resort per day. La Norma really close and good skiing.

Dr S

Check out the little Patisserie by the Pre Novel ski lift.

If we went back, we would like the same location, as it was peaceful and quiet and great for our family of four. 

Miss B

We had excellent 3 course meal at La Marmite. We also enjoyed food, ambiance and welcome by owner Michel at La Piece Neige bar/restaurant. We would recommend both.

Mr S

My family say the Monty Express luge has to be done! My 35 year old daughter says she screamed all the way down.

Mrs Y
January 2017

Booking through you just takes the hassle out of the process. Everything happens as it should and we can concentrate on getting there and back with the car, instead of worrying about the organisation. It makes the whole experience a lot more relaxing! Thank you again, we will be back next year!

Mr W

The ski hire people went above and beyond when I had problems with my own boots.

Mrs H

Mr T
January 2017

We really appreciated that we were put in an excellent large 4-6 person apartment with 2 bathrooms and view onto the village and that our family were directly above us in a spectacular 4 bed apartment. It was a fantastic holiday.

Mr H

Great range of children's activities around Christmas and New Year... Toboggan races, fireworks, nighttime skiing…

Mr D-Z

The residence Les Flocons d'Argent is extremely well located for the pistes. There is also a navette in Aussois that allows people to travel around if they don't want to walk. Grignott' creperie was particularly nice and friendly. At the local Vital (part of Casino chain) supermarket, they did roast chicken twice a week, which was delicious, though must be booked in advance. They have a wide selection of food and prices are reasonable. Aussois has a Famille Plus label and we found people really friendly with families. For the 3-4 years old, Club Piou-Piou was really great, our 3 year old learned to put her skis on and ski a bit during the week. There are actually 4 skiing levels within the Club Piou-Piou so it can suit lots of different abilities. The teachers are really friendly and did deal well with lots of children who were finding it a bit difficult to leave their parents in the morning. Aussois also seem to have a creche for small children for half days and full days, though we didn't try that. We all loved our skiing and managed to ski lots despite the lack of recent snow, they are very good at managing the pistes and also used snow cannons when the weather was cold enough. Would definitely recommend to all.
