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.
Neige & Roc Hotel was excellent.
The food and friendly service at La Maison à Colonnes are great, but book early as it is very popular.
The spa area at Kalinda was lovely - a choice of divine smelling steam rooms and saunas.
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.
The supermarket on site is incredibly well stocked and reasonable for the quality and convenience.
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.
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.
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.
If skiing with young children use the hired lockers near top of the Grand Massif Express.
Bowling was a good evening out with reasonably priced beer.
La Rosière is a perfect resort for a family holiday.
Good resort to take friends and family who are new to skiing.
Hotel St Charles apartments were fabulous and very clean!
Bar Le Graal was great for apres ski, either inside or outside in the sunshine.
Right next to the slopes, ski hire shop, supermarket. Excellent location.
Check out the Ten Pin Bowling in the nearby village for great food for the family. Great resort for families & beginner/intermediates.
Petit Oignons - best restaurant all round!
Great pool. Apartment spacious and comfortable. Good facilities.
We had a great evening watching a well supported local ice hockey game.
L'a-Coeur, L'Apres (pizzas) and Les Brevettes (can't book, cash only, amazing food) were our favourite restaurants.
We love L'Arcelle restaurant in Lanslevillard and La Vieille Poste in Lanslebourg. There are plenty of local boulangeries, the street market every Wednesday, as well as the well stocked and convenient supermarket.
A typically French ski resort, friendly welcoming locals.
The Lanchette lift next to the Grange aux Fees saves a lot of hard work getting on to the pistes.
The Off Shore Restaurant on the La Thuile slopes is a cool, quirky little restaurant with great music. Stopped there for cappucino and croissants every morning!
McKinleys restaurant was very reasonably priced with good food and a nice family atmosphere.
The Sherpa shop, Pizza du Bois and Fromagerie cheese shop on main street were excellent. We were 3 families in separate apartments and used the free hire service to have a fondue night and a raclette night, which the children enjoyed.
If you walk up to the old town, there's an Italian pizzeria; amazing food, amazing prices, amazing service.
Very good family resort with very quiet apres ski.
Would highly recommend lessons with ESF ski school. Staff very friendly, helpful and full of local knowledge.
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.
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.
Thank you ! We will certainly give you a call next time we are thinking of organising a group ski trip.
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.
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. Thank you Peak Retreats for finding such a gem.
Aussois is great for beginners and those with young families.
Ski in ski out was excellent. Lovely pistes and plenty of space. Resort just lacking apres ski but very friendly resort.
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.
I have recommended your company to many parents when they say it's too expensive to ski at half term!
Excellent for families with young children.
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.

Our favourite restaurant on the piste is L'Anfionne in Les Carroz. It's located opposite the Télésiège at the end of the Plein Soleil blue ski run.
There are fabulous patisseries in the town, so plenty of opportunities to treat yourself after a day on the slopes.
Great for families and beginner/intermediate skiers. Resort centre is nice, sweet local restaurants and bowling/ice skating, kids loved it.
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.
The location is right next to the piste & there's a very good Italian restaurant next door.
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.
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.
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.
Check out the little Patisserie by the Pre Novel ski lift.
The ski shop was absolutely excellent - unbelievably helpful.
Lovely traditional resort that is not commercialised. A great family friendly resort.
The local pizza restaurant above La Cascade is very good. The bowling alley is also fun for the kids.
Auberge is excellent, it has a sister restaurant on the mountain, which is equally as excellent.
The restaurant above the ice rink is a great place to let younger children play in the snow whilst having a drink and watching them!
La Pierce Neige restaurant at Outran 1 is excellent. Reception staff at Chalet des Neiges were efficient, friendly and very helpful.
Auris is small and friendly... It's a great resort for beginners.
If we went back, we would like the same location, as it was peaceful and quiet and great for our family of four.
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.
The Aspen bar was very good and the restaurant in Neige et Roc excellent... Samoens is a beautiful french village, I would visit even if I didn't ski!
Pretty village and good for non skiers.
Chez Leon at Plan Bois is a lovely bar/restaurant.
This resort is fantastic for families & the skiing instruction is top class.
My family say the Monty Express luge has to be done! My 35 year old daughter says she screamed all the way down.
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!
The ski hire people went above and beyond when I had problems with my own boots.
We found everyone in Samoens to be friendly and helpful...Samoens is such a beautiful place... we have been both in winter and summer and have loved it in both seasons!
La Maison de Columnes is an excellent all round restaurant, or just for drinks on the terrace.
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.
La Porte d'A Côté was excellent for fondue etc.
Great range of children's activities around Christmas and New Year... Toboggan races, fireworks, nighttime skiing…
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.
Aussois has a Famille Plus label and we found people really friendly with families. Would definitely recommend to all.
Aux 3 Ours cafe is a lovely pit stop for crèpes after skiing.
L'Ours Blanc fantastically situated for Diable chairlift. Definitely recommend for this and swimming pool.
Le Jamy great for evening meal. Le Refuge does the tastiest baked Camembert in the world!
A small resort with good family friendly restaurants and bars ( for early evening drink / food with family).
Best of both worlds. A great little resort with good atmosphere but with a massive ski area and very friendly people working there.
Another great holiday with Peak Retreats....Thanks.
All of the mountain restaurants were fabulous.
This is a fantastic resort for families, we shall be back.
Lift passes were there when we checked in.
The free transport around the village also worked really well. There was also a wide variety of restaurants and bars. The skiing for Spring was wide spread, and good, even quiet at times. Another great holiday thank you.
Les Barillon is excellent in the middle of the village, and L'Armoise on the mountain.
Very convenient location.... ski school to apartment to lift station location. , pool a bonus but quite busy. Apartment very comfortable with such a nice view. Beds very comfortable.
Great skiing, fantastic for kids. Food shopping limited in resort, but the shop had the basics. Appreciated the boulangerie service. We'll be back!
The Goat Restaurant was lovely but book in advance for bigger families or groups. Best restaurant we found.
Really efficient service. No hassle for us on arrival. Lift passes provided immediately and ski hire very close by.
Not a resort for party animals or young adults, but perfect for young families who don't want to spend a fortune on learning to ski.
Walk through the woods to La Rosiere. Torch light skiing on Monday night Ice Hockey match.
Cherylle Sargent was very good with all dealings.
We stayed at the La Refuge 2/4 - 9/4 and the girl on reception was excellent!
Everything was organised very well. No problems with any of the bookings/vouchers. Had to call whilst in France due to a car breakdown on return journey and staff very helpful and available which was brilliant.
Excellent service from Peak Retreats. Will definitely use again. Wish you covered Austria :)
Amazing restaurant called Black diamond.
The trip over to Termignon was worth the effort - we were the only ones on the slopes!
Very professional Staff were very knowledgable and helpful this time Pleasant stay in stop over hotels.
Montgenevre is our favourite by far weather has never disappointed us been lucky each time and really loved the room allocated for us this time, room number logged for future reference. A little hidden gem.
The pool and spa facility was particularly good, try it early in your holiday, it was a shame we did not discover this until the last day when the weather turned unfavourable.
Excellent service from Cherylle. As a result I will book again with Peak Retreats.
New St German wine bar and local produce sales is excellent.
Restaurant 'Monchu' - always go there for a great Fondu.. If you drive it's only 20 mins into Bourg St Maurice for larger supermarket & other shops.
On this occasion it was a late booking so didn't book extras but have booked lift passes before and all was good.
Seriously consider visiting the old town in Briancon to eat at least. Massive choice of excellent restaurants in beautiful surroundings.
Don't miss eating in the mountain piste restaurants they are good quality and very reasonably priced!
Really great to have lift passes before leaving home, whole package and up to date travel info etc really top notch!
Having had a super holiday in 2015 I recommended Aussois and Flocon D'Argent to 3 other families, all came in 2016, all had a great time and 2 of the 3 families are rebooking for 2017 ( other family can't due to school holiday dates being too late in ski season).
Really think you have a great formula there for getting young families on a budget skiing !
We enjoyed the Barrel Bar in Morillon 1100.
Briancon is a good base to visit the other ski resorts in the Serre Chevalier area. Great selection of hypermarkets in the immediate area.
The communal pool with flume, and bowling alley is also well worth a visit.
We really like using Roland Gay's heated ski lockers near the massif express in Samoens.
For Les Fermes de Samoens, just to say the walks around the residence, the green space for children to play, and the convenience of the ski bus for those who don't want to walk, are all excellent. Every year we see frog spawn in the same impossible puddles (!) and the same (?) blackbird on her nest. We love coming back there.
Only that we have got used to making our own arrangements including hotels en route, but we love flexi plus on the Eurotunnel.
Restaurants - Le Jami, Alpine Restaurant, Le Capitaine Pizza? Deli shop nr Hammeau des Airelles is excellent.
Excellent service from Peak Retreats as usual. The only comment would be to reply to email enquiries, though in the end a phone call is much easier and I got to find the answer out in greater depth.
Villeneuve has great access to and from the skiing area but is very quiet - which was fine for us on a catered holiday. If self catering, we'd recommend one of the other villages in Serre Chevalier.
Accommodation was excellent all round and we'd rate it as 4.5 out of 5. The half point was dropped for tiny things.... - the large quad rooms had NO hanging hooks for coats etc despite there being plenty of space for them. Absolutely essential on a skiing holiday. - The wardrobe and shelf space was pitiful - not enough for a couple, let alone a family of 4. Again, plenty of space available for more storage, it just hasn't been used well. - The bathroom (in room 311) was large enough but for some strange reason the toilet was right against the towel radiator meaning that you get a burnt leg when using the loo. There was plenty of space to move it away! Otherwise, the hotel was excellent with food far better than expected, lovely staff, a great boot room (with functioning boot heaters - very rare) and a great location.
Whilst the weather was rather too warm, the resort managed to keep a thick covering of blown snow (albeit heavy) all the way down to 1400m in April, so well done to them! A tip for skiers for the morning: avoid 9am as your skiing start time. Club Med opposite has many ski lessons starting at that time and the lift queue quickly becomes huge. Either go for 8.45 and be the first on the lift or wait until about 9.20 when it's died down.
An excellent holiday all round, topped and tailed by the queue-busting Flexiplus tickets which probably saved us 90 minutes each way at Easter.
The dinner package that we took (for 3 course meals every night) was excellent. The quality of the food was exceptional and the staff went out way to ensure that our needs (including fussy children) were catered for. Would definitely go for this option again.
The apartment was in a fantastic location with easy ski-in and ski-out from the door. Great for the kids with no carrying of ski's!
The swimming pool is a must, very relaxing, give yourself plenty time to enjoy it.
L'ancolie in Les Eucherts is definitely worth a visit.
Etoile de Cimes is the best for location and value....yeti bar and bergerie are great for sitting and watching the kids play on the nursery.
Italian restaurant, Il Caminetto. fantastic food, excellent service, great price, varied menu. Five minutes from l'Ours Blanc.
Quite liked the Cocoon bar - its a fairly basic pub/bar but the staff are very friendly.
Restaurant Flocon did really good food in Eucherts.
Enjoyed ambience of Aspen Bar, excellent burgers, salads and service at Bar Savoie. For a Savoyarde style meal try La Fifine restaurant, excellent although not cheap - need to book.
This is the second time we have used Peak Retreats - excellent service - and would use again!
I would rate the resort and accommodation as better than good and just slightly less than excellent.
I really enjoy Ste Foy as it is perfect for families with children - we will be returning next year!
Le-St-Germain. By far the best bar/winebar in resort.
La Ferme is a great little restaurant in town. And, up the mountain, Le Chalet Friolin has a great indoor restaurant and does mountain soirées which sounded fun, whereby they're skidoo you back to Montchavin at the end of the evening.
Please keep up the flexiplus, it makes a big difference at peak time with children!
Having stayed in many CGH residences the chalets de jouvence is our favourite for a winter holiday. It is exceptionally well run by Stephane and it is very well designed with the skier in mind.
Make sure you book any restaurants in advance particularly on a Friday eve! The pizza restaurant at L'Avalanche is excellent although we had to take away as it was full.
Ski bus is excellent - runs on time and very easy.
Worth paying extra for a ski locker by the slopes - book with Arthur Sports.
Ski and boots hire in excellent location to the accommodation along with same for ski school and lift pass office.
The local fromagerie is excellent and more reasonable than the local supermarket!
Ceasers is the best restaurant for food ambience and friendliness. We celebrated birthdays in there.
As always our interaction with peak retreats was excellent and we found the team to be very friendly and helpful.
Magic show mid week in the pizza restaurant was excellent.
The resort itself was lovely and we will go back.
Favourite restaurant was La Ferme des trois Ours which was just up the road.
Great helpful staff at restaurant Four 7 within the Kalinda resort. Darts and pool tables.
Flexi Euro tunnel ticket a great option.
An excellent price for a really nice accommodation at Easter.
The accommodation at Santa Terra is really great, the staff are so friendly and helpful. It is excellent for restaurants all round, and if you have a car you can get to Val D'Isere and VillaRoger very quickly as well as Tignes.
It was so easy to book ski school through Peak Retreats and just turn up on the day.
Restaurant recommendations are Le Serac and la Table de Fifine are excellent.
Caesers and La Cadesol are our favourite restaurants, must see the 2Fat Men in Le Graal Wednesday nights.
Le Barillon, Aussois. Excellent restaurant, superb staff.
L'Ancolie for a traditional setting and authentic dishes, la Grange excellent pizza and Le Flocon great burgers and sports TV.
La Remise - beautifully presented food, very cosy alpine retreat.
Peak Retreats sorted several extras out for us at short notice and were really helpful.
overall a very good service and the staff are very helpful - would and have recommended.
Marlow Bar does excellent lunches Aux Petit Onion is the best high-end restaurant.
Can I start by letting you know (somewhat belatedly) how much we enjoyed our holiday at Chalet des Dolines and how impressed we were with the service Peak Retreats delivered before, during and after our stay. We will certainly be using you again and have recommended you to our friends.
The staff there were welcoming and consistently helpful.
Ski schools was excellent. We loved the fact it was properly French and that we were the only Brits in our small group. The instructor was great and it was a masterclass in building confidence in the slopes.
We were very happy overall. It was a great holiday and we will book again with Peak Retreats.
Restaurant opposite Carrefour Supermarket very good. Think it's called Don Cappello. Fab food, full of locals. May need to book. Does take away pizza too.
Great access to ESF ski school at Moulin Benjemin lift directly opposite accommodation. Able to get to slopes very easily. Snow park fab for teenager and enough blues and easier reds for 7 year old. Ski area large enough to ski most of the day without skiing same runs twice!
The staff at peak retreats, especially Sarah and Charlotte were excellent.
La Coche mountain restaurant in Claviere is fantastic. Le Jamy was good.
The Flexi upgrade was great, not knowing how long the return journey will actually take, to arrive and get on the next departure was simply marvellous.
Good linking to Alpes D 'Huez , resort just a handful of apartment blocks , quiet , pretty but need to make your own entertainment . Value for money - excellent .
Lovely quiet, friendly resort. Sufficient skiing to keep everyone happy. Ski school v friendly. Love the fact that you can always ski runs that are virtually empty at anytime of day - even during school holidays. Our 4th visit and probably not our last!
There are so many things to like about Les Gets its hard to find one that stands out. Would suggest BASS best ski school for lessons. Mine have always been brilliant.
I would and do always recommend Peak Retreats to people who ask about ski holidays.
Lovely family meal at Le Genepi in La Rosiere.
Pat who met us in the resort and showed us into the accomadation was really helpful.
Brilliant to have ski hire and lift passes pre arranged.
Cybele apartments are very spacious, having a swim at the end of the day is also a great bonus we went as an extended group and had 3 apartments next to each other which worked v well.
Le Cafe Comptoir has an excellent reputation but needs to be booked well in advance. The restaurant in the residence is friendly and the food pleasant and good value for money.
Mid stay and end of stay cleaning in much appreciated.
The service provided by the staff at Peak Retreats is always excellent.
I have recommended Peak Retreats and Aussois to many people and it is excellent value for money.
If you are looking for peace and quiet then this is the place.
Le Serac for great food and ambience. Les Tartines de Martines for crepes and gifts.
Accommodation was great again. We were lucky to be upgraded to a 2 bed apartment. Pool area lovely.
Room G204 was in a great location looking over the sledge / nursery slope. Couldn't have been more convenient or fun with young children. Novotel Dijon Sud also very convenient.
Super package - you have perfected the family ski holiday.
Very quiet resort - which suited us with young children.
La Bergerie restaurant was excellent - fantastic food, great local wines and a lovely peaceful terrace to enjoy the setting sun.
Issue with spa treatment but Peak Retreats sorted it out very efficiently which was great.
Bars/restaurants at the top of the bubble lift excellent accessible for both skiers and non- skiers.
Maison a colonnes - good for lunch and dinner.
The Ours Bleu is very good with wonderful staff.
Self catering in Samoens is brilliant as all the lovely local shops sell delicious food that just needs warming up.
Ski schools was excellent. We loved the fact it was properly French and that we were the only Brits in our small group. The instructor was great and it was a masterclass in building confidence in the slopes.
Evening meals prepared and presented to a very high standard.
The Avalanche bar is relaxed and fun for all ages. Restaurant in main square called (I think) La Fiancre is superb but you must book in advance (furry seats outside).
Skiset hire shop which is joined onto Chalet D'Angele is excellent. The guys working there are calm, efficient, friendly and speak good English. Second time we have hired our equipment from them via Peak Retreats and wouldn't go anywhere else.
Flexi-plus is a superb service and one I would highly recommend.
Great resort, Le Buet accommodation with ski in-ski out is ideal.
Peak Retreats delivered again as have done on our previous trips. We will be booking again with you. Thank you.
Overall we all had an amazing week and will definitely be booking through Peak Retreats next year.
The ski-in / ski-out convenience of the Chalets de Jouvence was the best we have ever experienced. A considerable advantage.
The skiing above Les Carroz was considerably more extensive than I had appreciated, and the lift system connections to the neighbouring villages worked very well, and was well sign-posted. Altogether an excellent base to ski the Grand Massif area.
Favourite restaurant good with children is La Galetta in St Gervais. Excellent supermarket if you have a car is the Super U down the hill.Great ski hire and service is the shop by the butchers in St Gervais.
Don Bates English ski tutor who freelancers with the French ski school is recommended for ski lessons - he is superb and speaks fluent French - a ski expert.
Very very pleased with the flexiplus tickets for the tunnel - we will buy them again.
We have holidayed in Val Cenis at least 3 times now all through Peak Retreats and the reason for this is simple. As a value for money resort with good skiing and access we have not found anywhere to compete. The resort is as it has always been which is very quite with limited apres ski but we are not really overly concerned by this, younger singles and couples may find it an issue though. Lift passes and food and drink prices on the mountain remain very reasonable when compared to many other larger resorts and a mortgage is not required to buy a meal for two and a bottle of wine for lunch. overall a very pleasant weeks skiing and boarding.
The accommodation this year at the hotel Saint Charles was exceptional (perhaps to be expected as it is a new 4* resort that opened for this season) we will almost certainly be booking it again for next year providing that cost remains the same or similar as we felt it was great value for money. If the prices were a teaser for the opening year and go up significantly next year we will re evaluate our plans. It is fair to say though that this was the nicest accommodation we have experienced in our many years of skiing.
Thank you Steve. Great service as always, lovely company to deal with.
Wonderful for touring intermediate skiers. Go a long way: the links back are efficient cross mountain paths.
Skiset are helpful positive and hsbe great equipment.
Just wanted to let you know we had a fantastic time last week, the hotel was great, so thank you!! I also wanted to know how we could go about booking for half term next year :-)
Great friendly, efficient service.. please do not change.. especially like the pack of info / vouchers. Sarah is a star!
La Fare and Stief restaurants are good for food, ambience and value for money. The restaurants on the slopes are very good quality and goof value. Not much choice for other nightlife apart from restaurants, though a great place to go with young families.
World heritage village is close and good to visit. The swimming pool in town is great.
Restaurants worth visiting include La Table de la Fare near the main cable car and Stieff Bar/Restaurant, La Remise and the Creperie on Place de la Fare. Favourite restaurants on piste - La Alpette and La Vaujanette. A must see is La Grotte de Glace near the top of Alpe D'Huez, 5 euro's entry but well worth the visit. How clever are these snow sculpture's. Montfrais chairlift gets very busy late morning and mid afternoon with skiers returning to Alpe D'Huez. Favourite bar - Arsens Sports Bar.
The Taniere is our favourite family restaurant and Le Cadeux our adult one although the kids love the fondue. The Yeti is our favourite family mountain stop.
Les Marmottons was good. Sledging area good for kids after skiing. Free hot wine /chocolate around 5pm nice
The Bergerie mountain restaurant in La Plagne area was excellent. The Bulle café in Les Arc was very good.
Loved the Golf Restaurant on the slopes (next to Bruyere Blue run), quieter than most places, lovely food and great atmosphere. Went there 3 times!
The evening sledging on the nursery slopes was great fun - they even leave the new 'moving carpet' lift open for you to use.
The civilised atmosphere of Oree des Cimes and luxurious reception area. Instantly made us feel relaxed after a stressful journey.
The best place in Paradiski if you want a quiet holy away from the masses and bustle.
This resort is very small with less than a hand full of places to eat, but they are all very good. There is one small supermarket with everything you a number of small quaint food and essentially French shops. Its what we like about it.
Cafe Cosy was great at the end of the day to have a drink with friends. Friendly, accommodating staff. Le Panoramic at the top of the first 6 man lift is great for lunch with regional specialities and a carbonara which my children always rave about. It has the most amazing views (on a clear, sunny day). The staff are always very helpful. Worth booking for large groups. If you want fondue or racket, you need to let them know a day in advance.
Go to Maison Carrel on the slopes of La Thuile-incredible pasta and wonderful mountain restaurant, very authentic. Also the Kitzbuhel bowling bar at the bottom of the slopes in La Rosiere is excellent.
We spent so much time skiing that we did not have energy for much exploring! The patisserie in the Criterium complex was lovely. Also the crepes place near the Mickey run (just off the final bend on Escargot run) was excellent.
Great family friendly resort. Love it here. If travelling with dog there is a brilliant vet in Tanges vetofamily vets.
Twitter feed, re: travel and weather conditions, really useful on the car journey.
Marie-Anne was excellent at liaising with the hotel and very helpful.
Euro Tunnel Flexi Plus for the return journey saved us hours - good value for money.
Your arrangements were excellent, FlexiPlus is brilliant!
Was very useful this year that we were able to collect ski passes at the accommodation when checking in.
Bar 59 is an excellent place for wine lovers. A great selection of wines by the glass run by a genuinely lovely and enthusiastic couple. Grill du Gron a great place for well cooked BBQ.
Cannot fault the service by Steve when faced with very late tunnel cancellation by rebooking us on a train 12 hours later. Bit of a nightmare as our pre planned journey with roof box turned into a squash without one but it was better than not going, so thanks!
Got accommodation about 1700 which was a quick process. Apartments had all necessary amenities for cooking which we would make more use of next time. Would probably take own quilt as theirs were a bit warm. The apartment was bigger than we imagined and had a fantastic view of the town and mountains.
The restaurant at the top of the first lift out of the village serves the best Tarteflette and the staff are very friendly compared to other restaurants up the mountain.
Favourite restaurant and value for money was La Table de la Fare.
A lovely typical french village rather than a purpose made resort.
The staff in the UK are excellent ... very helpful.
Great to be able to ski in and out of chalet, particularly useful for coming back for lunch.
Quiet, village. Perfect for a Family that want to get away from the busy hustle and bustle.
Staff were very helpful whenever I rang. Nothing was too much trouble.
Alpen Roc is all inclusive at half term and included everything - beer, wine, spirits, all soft drinks and good quality coffee / chocolate. Chef was lovely and takes pride in the food. There is not a vast choice of main course but this is more than made up for by the quality - there is a lot of choice of salads, starters and deserts - which were also excellent. In general the staff were all brilliant and really added to our stay.
Santa Terra accommodation was excellent, staff very helpful and friendly.
The pub next door for apres ski and the Italian in the town just past the tourist information was fantastic.
The staff at Peak retreats were fantastic especially Steve for recommending Aigle Bleu and the girls who took the booking. I will be definitely coming back soon. The service was outstanding, thank you.
A fantastic resort and perfectly placed and lovely accommodation at the Aigle Bleu, endless ski area and 300 sunny days of the year, just perfect.
Euro Tunnel Flexi Plus for the return journey saved us hours - good value for money
Great food excellent service at le bistrot Savoyard.
Arrived in resort about 15.00 and people were already picking up their accommodation. We parked on main road and picked up skis, lift passes etc. Got accommodation about 17.00 which was a quick an process. Was not aware there were ski lockers until day 2. Apartments had all neccesary amenites for cooking (which we did not use) which we would make more use of next time. Would probably take own quilt as theirs were a bit warm. We rented the most basic apartment which was bigger than we imagined and had a fantastic view of the town and mountains.
Restaurant La Place de la Fare is very good. The Bakery behind Les Epinettes is superb.
Ideal for families - limited evening entertainment and bars close early however restaurants really good and use local produce.
Lovely atmosphere with very helpful staff in excellent accommodation.
We really enjoyed our holiday and were hugely impressed with the resort - we'll be going back!
Excellent restaurants, advisable to book. Spar very well stocked and convenient to Village de Lessy. The resort was excellent for beginners.
Couldn't fault the ESF Ski School, although some teachers didn't speak very good English but on the whole a very French Resort.
Peak Retreats staff couldn't have been more helpful. Everything worked well from the private transfer to the ski passes to the spa treatments booked. Many thanks for all your help.
The takeaway below the Grand Alpes apartments, next to the supermarket is excellent value and lovely food. Great if you don't want to cook all the time.
All the resort is lovely. Recommend Smithy's bar, the spot bar and umbrella bar.
Quiet, welcoming resort (don't want too many people to know!).
Access from top apartment block to ski area involves lots of lifts, although they are quick. Then a short walk once out of accommodation to nearest lift.
Good all round resort. Recommend the Yeti Bar next to Escargot.
Really easy access to other areas. Tignes Les Breviers and Valroger gave easy parking and access into Tignes and Les Arcs. Watch put for the journey to and from Moutiers and build in at least 2 hours if travelling on a Saturday.
No where is too far to walk. There are several free buses circulating too.
The historic village makes it a good place for non-skiers.
Try L'op Traken at Les Contamines to eat if you have car with you. Plenty of good restaurants in St Gervais if you do not have a car. On the slopes Auberge a la Ferme de la Venaz is great value - on Finance piste. If more adventurous, a day to Gitiaz, using free buses to cross Megeve. Service received at Bar-Restaurant on return, Auberge de Bonjournal, was great.
The on-site restuarant Le Bergerie is excellent value for money. Top quality food, good service and in a beautiful setting.
Ski equipment package with SkiSet was excellent value. Staff at SkiSet are extremely helpful and happy to swap equipment if fit isn't correct or want to try boarding for an afternoon.
Sainte Foy came up trumps again. We love this small resort and the bonus of a couple of heavy dumps of snow made it another memorable holiday.
Have just returned from a great holiday at the Napoleon apartments at Montgenevre. The standard of room at the Napoleon was fantastic, not least the large sunny balcony for the children to play on. The complex is really central... supermarket next door, restaurants and under fives ski garden a very short walk. Boot room was superb, large and warm!
Peak were helpful and efficient throughout. Very happy to receive information and offers for 2017.
Town centre, supermarkets, train station and funicular all within walking distance of our accommodation.
All extras first rate arrangements, transfer had appropriate child seats and steady driver. The pre booked spa treatment was excellent.
The ESF ski school was excellent took a 4 year old from absolute beginner in the delightful snow garden to be able to follow mummy and daddy down a gentle slope independently.
Great space on Front de Neige for toddler to run and lovely safe toboganing play area. Nice play ground on top of gondola so family could meet up for coffee.
Apartment reception had a great little play space with trains and toys. Alan on reception couldn't have been more helpful.
The Hors Piste in Super Chatel serves great food, the Avalanche pub had live bands some nights and was good after skiing
A lovely, quiet, family resort with great connections to the larger ski area.
As always, you do not miss anything, every aspect was covered completely, and to a high standard.
A brand new block, only 1 month old, so not quite all finished off yet. Great position and the reception staff were very good. The apartment was also good and had plenty of cutlery, crockery etc. A comfortable place, and parking was easy. Just a v short walk to the ski hire shop, who were just marvellous, and access to the piste was simple.
Snow shoe and ski randonee routes are very good.
Excellent location with easy access. If you want night life then Tignes Les Boisses is very quiet but that is also what makes it a nice place. Excellent location and great apartments.
Snow Tubing in the centre of Aussois village is excellent fun (late evening entertainment). Overall, very family friendly, easy going environment. Do your supermarket shopping in Modane on your way to the resort.
If your English speaking children are in Ski School, follow up with their Instructors each day after class on their progress (as most communications tend to be in French and children can become bored/left behind because they are not understanding the spoken word.
Peak Retreats were accommodating in respect of Ski School (ESF Aussois) arrangements for our 3 year old (we were concerned she would not like it after day 1, but PR and the Ski School were very flexible with us on this and would have refunded us pro rata for unused time. As it worked out, out little girl enjoyed it and went to Ski School for the 6 mornings! It was great not having to worry about this point.
The accommodation was one of the best I have stayed in. Very friendly staff and extremely convenient....the garage where our car was parked was within feet of the appartment. Similarly, the small supermarket was really close and convenient.
Peak Retreats Ski hire was excellent value - competitively priced.
We always eat in the Slalom in Notre Dame. The take away Pizzas were very good value and hand made.
Hotel Morillon very friendly and good. Restaurant La Carline lovely with excellent food and hospitality. An excellent resort with good access to other resorts in the Grand Massif. Lower slopes (below 1200m) can get icy late afternoon.
The Marquise for lunch and hot chocolate and The Tapas Bar any time.
Accommodation brand new and excellent - Cyril was brilliant . Great duplex apartment and best leisure facilities of the other MGM's we have stayed at. An additional English speaking channel on tv would be good.
Great bakery, most friendly and family orientated restaurant was Serac close to accommodation, have a late lunch on the mountains and you don't need a full dinner! Igloo restaurant excellent at top of Morillon. Slopes in Les Carroz greatly improved this year.
We always select accommodation where basic services and provisions are included in the price. Our accommodation at Vallorcine was very good in this respect.
We like to use a resort as a base to visit other resorts, so Vallorcine was convenient for both the Chamonix Unlimited ski areas as well as places like Verbier and Courmayer. For us, Vallorcine was perfect.
L'Arcelle was excellent. We used the free use of fondue and raclette on 2 nights which our grandchildren really enjoyed. The fromagerie in village and nearby have wonderful selectionto choose from. Also used nearby takeaway Pizza and ready made meals which were good value.
La Tania has a lot of English visitors, adding an electric kettle to the equipment in the apartment would be good.
If self catering there is a lager supermarket in Mondane a small town in the valley. Also a very good English speak Chiropractor in Modane if any clients have any problems etc.
Thank you for a great service prior during and after a fantastic trip. La Norma may be small resort but great for families. Great bars and restaurants. Every thing about La Norma is fab!! Fabrice my children's ski instructor was 'fab'.
Ski locker room was a bit small and may be good to have an oven in the apartment but overall, fantastic week away. Thanks again Peak Retreats!
The hotel 'Au Coeur de Village' was absolutely fabulous! 5* accommodation at its best. La Clusaz is a very charming, unspoilt resort with opportunities for lots of retail therapy and other activities such as the outdoor pool and the ice rink as well as plenty of varied skiing. We would most definitely consider going again.
We have just returned from a great week at Ste Foy. This email is to thank you and Cherylle for all you patient help in making all the arrangements. Everything worked out well. It was snowing when we arrived and didn't stop. The two 6 person apartments were next door to each other which made it very friendly. The guys in the ski hire shop were very accommodating. Everyone had a great time and we will be back. Hope to rest of the season goes well.
The transfer taxi drivers were particularly kind and helpful.
Fantastic for families, runs perfect for kids learning.
Peak retreats were excellent as normal, the girl over the phone was especially helpful when booking the holiday 10 out of 10.
Excellent provision for taxi transfer from station, drivers were waiting for us and very friendly. Peak Retreats staff, Marie-Anne and Cherylle were extremely accommodating for specific individual requests. Excellent customer service, always rang back. Thank you for getting all our train seats adjacent to each other.
The newsagent/deli store provided and excellent raclette service, plenty of meats and cheeses and potato for 10€ a head. Having Ski set within the Les Fermes apartments. Easy progression from nursery to blue slopes. Good for a large party of all abilities. Good local baker.
Recommend bakery with cafe, Aux 3 Ours cafe/bar, Ancolie restaurant for more up market dining, and good children's menu at the very large 3 storey restaurant. Bowling and patinoire good. Take shortcut through Les Balcons to get down to Les Eucherts centre. Loved the woodland walk into La Rosiere centre.
Used Eurostar Snowtrain from Ashford. Excellent reserved seats and Taxi Bourzin from Bourg St Maurice to accommodation - all excellent!!!
The ski shop next to the accommodation bent over backwards to help source some components for a helmet I bought from them 2 years ago, and stayed open the last evening we were there so I could pick them up.
Mont Blanc bar is friendly and good - very convenient if staying at the Oree des Cimes. We go for a pretty quiet time but for those who want night life the resort is probably not the right choice.
We used the snow train for the first time, which worked well. There is a bit of a scramble for luggage space as people tend to have plenty and they don't have enough room when the train is full of families. Staying near St Pancras the night before is a life-saver - we stayed at the premier inn, which is a five-minute walk. At the French end the train does some annoying messing about after Chambery but for those going to resorts near to Bourg St Maurice the very short additional transfer time is great.
Taxi Bouzon were very good. On time both for our arrival and pick up on departure.
A restaurant called Boomerang is a brilliant atmosphere, value for money, friendly but you need to book although you can just call in for a drink. Also restaurant choucas is great.
Just one little thing about the chalet, it needs a very essential item -a pair of oven gloves! Can't fault anything else though. Peak Retreats advised us to take tea towels and cleaning cloths which we did but we needed oven gloves.
Thank you for all your help Marie–Anne we had a lovely week. You were very helpful in sorting out the accommodation for us which turned out to be really nice.
We have just returned from Termignon, after a fantastic week of skiing. As last year, we had a great time, the place and people are nice and friendly and the services provided by you at Peak Retreats were top, no complaints at all.
We are on the way home from our holiday in Aussois, although we had limited snow we thoroughly enjoyed it. The location of our apartments couldn't have been better, they were of good standard and clean.
The children all enjoyed their lessons, they found the ski instructors helpful and friendly. Thank you for your help and detailed information, we most certainly will be returning next year.
La Fiacre restaurant was great value family restaurant, but book early.
Worth arranging lift passes through Peak Retreats saving time when you arrive at resort.
Recommended restaurants: Aux Becs a Fleu, La Tornalta, Mezzanine. Tried Le Serac but this restaurant was booked solidly for the whole week between Xmas & New Year....very popular. Bars: Aspen Tips: Book restaurants well in advance or online especially between Xmas & New Year as they all get booked up really quickly.
Overall a great resort for group of skiers with mixed abilities. I believe its really good for families with young children learning how to ski. The ESF centre here its particularly good. On the plus side very limited queues at peak season. Stunning panoramic views all over the resort. For families/group of good skiers there are better location. The link with La Thuile has more advanced slopes, so not as good.
Les Flocons d'Argent apartments are in the perfect location and have everything you need. However, there is no oven so we took our slow cooker with us which meant that we could come back after skiing to a mouth watering smell and dinner already cooked.
Very efficient service and it is well worth not using a roof box if you can manage without it so that you can stop off at the Flexiplus lounge and collect your complimentary food and drink.
Quiet resort but very easy to access all facilities, restaurants and shops all very close by as is the lift.
The Santa Terra is particularly good accommodation - it is our favourite Peak Retreats accommodation.
Rated as ‘Excellent’ by Peak Retreats’ clients for location; access; comfort; size/space; facilities/equipment and friendliness of staff. Also rated as ‘Excellent’ overall.
Rated as ‘Excellent’ by Peak Retreats’ clients for location and access.
Rated as ‘Excellent’ by Peak Retreats’ clients for location; access and friendliness of staff.
Rated as ‘Excellent’ by Peak Retreats’ clients for location; access and facilities/equipment.
Great for children/teenagers with pool, bowling and ice dancing show all available in resort.
We thought Fermes des Samoens was excellent and Peak Retreats were the best ski company we have booked with. Thank you.
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.
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.
The new staff at Fermes des Samoens are much friendlier than they used to be, which is a bonus.
Accommodation was a bit of a hike from the main area of the resort, but other than that, very good.
Excellently arranged as ever.
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.
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.
Petit onion restaurant- excellent family meal out. Great food, kids menu and extremely friendly staff.
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.
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.
We had exceptional weather, it was good skiing and we did some sightseeing aswell. The forts are amazing.
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.
L'Arcelle does excellent food, but you need to book ahead.
Bar le savoie is really good value for meals.
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.
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.
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!
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!
Flexi plus at the Eurotunnel was a very welcome surprise and much needed for the long journey.
The Eurotunnel flexi plus was a real bonus and great service.
Our apartment on the south side enjoyed the sun. We could also see the kids on the little green slope.
Good value, larger than expected accommodation, if anything too much snow for the time of year! But all very good.
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
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!
We loved the pool/sauna etc and have recommended to two families already, who are coming with us next year. ;0)
The accommodation was very spacious and well appointed. Its location was very convenient for the gondola, supermarket and ski hire facilities.
We only used the Hotel (Morillon) which is excellent and has all we need. Also used local friendly bar (Le Bon Coin).
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.
Thank you Peak Retreats for making our holiday booking very easy.
V helpful service overall. Useful advice.
All smooth, slick and well organised - The whole process was well managed from start to finish.
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!
Excellent service from Peak Retreats as always. Thanks for another great holiday - we will be back!
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.
Just back from fabulous week skiing in Aussois. Thank you! I cannot recommend you enough. Looking forward to next year already.
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.
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!
Excellent authentic small French restaurant - Le Raisin D'Ours.
La Cordee is a really nice restaurant with an absolutely fantastic view, nice classic mountain food and friendly staff.
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.
Brilliant ice rink free with lift pass. Fabulous swim pool also free. Great little resort with easy access into Alpe dHuez.
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!
The Monty Luge was great for kids. Find out early when the cocco supermarket is doing meals - makes it easier to order in advance.
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.
The flocking bar in les eucherts was great. Fantastic service, very welcoming.
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.
Cafe Cosy was great and visit the cafe at the top of the mountain.
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.
l'Ecoelle and Chalet des Marmottes are our favourite restaurants.
La Potee d'Oz - excellent food and atmosphere/service.
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!
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!
L'Etagne restaurant had a lovely ambience, an excellent menu and great service. Very family friendly.
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.
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.
The taxi from Geneva train station and back was excellent.
The staff at Les Balcons were excellent, and the booking in process was the best we have experienced. Everything went smoothly. Very pleased.
Free parking for disabled badge holders was very helpful. On arrival we were given a choice of two rooms which was a nice touch.
The apartments were in a great location for the slopes.
The bread service by Cimes Blanches is excellent and you can collect before 8am.
Etoile de Neige is a good value, simple, friendly restaurant.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Ski lessons were fantastic; the boys loved it. Amazing how much they learnt.
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.
The check-in procedure at the apartments was great and the French receptionist was very pleasant.
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.
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!
Santa Terra was excellent. Great choice! Spa was fab.
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.
The hotel staff were especially caring and helpful when my wife was unwell.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
We are always very pleased with the service we receive from Peak Retreats.
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.
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.
Liked the update emails before we went.
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.
The staff were very efficient in dealing with all requests.
We had to arrange an extra set of ski hire at last minute and it was all sorted for us very smoothly- thank you.
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.
Overall, we had a fabulous holiday and as ever, the service and information we received from the Peak Retreats team was excellent.
We've already paid a deposit with you for next year - says it all. Robin
Le Copeaux restaurant is super- book up before you arrive though it gets very busy.
Mbc for après ski is recommended.
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.
Tiny traditional village with direct lift/piste access and child-friendly bars and restaurants.
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.
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.
Great local market on Wednesdays.
La Grange D'Auguste restaurant in Lanslevillard - great food, friendly service, interesting place - been twice.
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!
Nice small family resort with plenty of intermediate skiing. Skiing for beginners a bit limited. Lovely lunchtime places on the slopes.
Ski across to Italy for lunch - it's a lot cheaper to eat there!
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.
Union express supermarket had the best fruit and veg.
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.
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 :-)
All the restaurants are great and the new wine bar/tapas bar is a great addition.
Le Bergerie restaurant can cater gluten free. There are no gluten free groceries available in the supermarkets, ie pasta, flour, so take with you.
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.
If going at half term book any restaurants before you go. Le Serac excellent.
Le Jamy restaurant - friendly staff, fantastic service and good food. Pierrade particularly good.
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.
Restaurants - Caesar, La Capitaine recommended. Do the Luge up the top of the Chalvet Telecabine.
Chez Marcel was a great restaurant with good food and really friendly staff.
We had a lovely time, the skiing was great and the resort was fabulous.
The hot box restaurant is recommended.
I would definitely recommend Table de la Fare - we had two excellent meals here.
La Saucisse sells delicious plat du jour to heat in the apartment as well as many other lovely, tasty things to eat!
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.
Le Diavolo is a good family restaurant.
A super resort for families and excellent value for money.
A great family resort with excellent on piste dinning options. Evening options in Morillon 1100 are limited.
Good small supermarket but can get initial supplies from larger supermarket just off the main road in the near by town.
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.
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.
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!
We had a very good and reasonably priced meal at Chez Felix - creperie/restaurant in Vallandry.
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.
Excellent as a family ski resorts. Not a large number of bars, so may not appeal to young couples.
The Super U super market located across the road from the apartment and a restaurant called 'Altitude 850' in the Hight street at B.st. Maurice are recommended.
Airelles restaurant next to Chalet les Jouvence, Les Carroz was excellent. A little pricey but well worth the last night occasion!
First class service in every respect.
ESF ski instructor was the best we have ever had - absolutely fantastic.
Airport transfer firm was excellent.
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!
The Eurotunnel Flexi plus was excellent. I have never gotten through soo smoothly!!! Very happy!
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.
Always have used flexi pass as it is a fab feature of the Eurotunnel journey.
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!
Taxi arranged from Cluses was excellent. Comfortable and punctual.
Much appreciated well heated 25m swimming pool in Combloux apartments.
Our 17 year old son had a fantastic time in ESF class 4 doing off piste skiing!
A delightful, very friendly resort. Excellent, thoughtful accommodation.
Peak Retreats' staff were friendly, informed, helpful and provided top quality customer service.
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.
Pizza and fondue at Le Poirier was great.
Excellent resort for a family holiday.
The accommodation was first class.
I thought the staff I dealt with at Peak Retreats were very pleasant and professional.
I would definitely recommend the evening meal package in La Bergerie, good food and excellent value for money.
'Sabot de Venus' restaurant is very good. Outa and Escale bars are very welcoming, and reasonably-priced.
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.
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.
Easy and prompt service to book extras over the phone at Peak Retreats.
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.
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.
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.
4 Epices restaurant in Saint Gervais village is recommended.
Le Marmotte is excellent, I'Ancole was also very good contrary to some unfair and unkind things we read on trip advisor.
Kids loved torchlight descent. Shop at Intermarche nearby, cheaper than Sherpa.
All ski extras arranged were excellent. I had a group of 43 people so it was extremely important that all arrangements were efficient.
Good value accommodation in perfect location for ski lift but also easy walk into town.
Very good; had to arrange bigger accommodation after booking as more of the family decided to come.
Excellent office staff!!
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.
Le Ferme de Oz was an excellent, friendly restaurant.
Vincents wine bar is recommended.
Alpage and Cremaillere very good restaurants.
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.
Bar - Aspen Café, restaurants - Serac, Septemontain, Tornalta, Clarins - all exellent.
A Village for people who aren't look for a wild nightlife. All restaurants very good.
Polar bear bar, smokey joes and the red frog all recommended.
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.
Very efficiently arranged.
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.
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.
Le Gron restaurant was fabulous.
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.
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.
Dining at The Lodge was exceptional. Also Marquise for lunch up the mountain.
Vallorcine is a good base for the Chamonix Valley and for trips to Verbier in Switzerland (approx. 1 hour away). Spacious accommodation.
Mezzanine restaurant is recommended.
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.
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.
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.
Chalet was lovely and warm; plenty of hot water, comfortable beds, adequate equipment for self catering and nice sauna.
A big thanks to the team @ Peak Retreats for their skilled provision of information before during and now after our trip.
A great service thanks
Excellent Service from the Team!
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.
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.
Au Pekin was good, slightly different. Le Bistrot de la Paix, nice meal, good atmosphere (assuming you can understand some French).
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.
La Vache was a friendly bar / pizza place for lunchtime with the children.
Take advantage of the spit roast chicken for sale from the supermarket under Les Flocons - yummy.
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 :)
It's great for those who like a traditional small village which is generally peaceful and quiet.
The New Years Eve firework celebrations in the village were perfectly pitched for all the family to enjoy.
La Cloche is a lovely traditional savoie restaurant, excellent value and friendly owners.
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.
Transfer got us there safe in bad conditions!
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.
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.
Eurotunnel flexi pass is excellent, even when it was the most busiest time of the year.
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.
Reservations team were fantastic at helping reorganise alternative ferry after snow and traffic chaos in France on return journey. Thanks.
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.
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.
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!
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!
La Table de Fifine provided an amazing Christmas Eve dinner.
Le Cellier - amazing food cooked on an open fire.
Restaurant Locates at the resort was great. Very friendly, lovely food.
La Bergerie good for evening meals. Good lunches at La Maison.
The taxi driver got us to our departure on time despite severe weather and poor driving conditions on Sat morning.
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.
Friendly and attentive staff at Morillon 1100 Sport 2000 hire shop.
The Flexiplus system was fantastic; we travelled on peak dates over Christmas/New Year and did not experience any delays.
Flexi plus Channel Tunnel ticket is excellent.
The accommodation was excellently situated perfectly close to the lift
Situation and place of les Fermes de Sainte Foy were beautiful
Montgenevre is a very lovely fairly small quiet resort. We were there at the end of the season so it was understandably winding down. This is an excellent resort for less able skiers as it is possible to get to the highest areas yet still ski all the way back into Montgenevre on nice wide green and blue runs. There is plenty for expert skiers too with nice black and red runs.
Our apartment at Chalet des Dolines was superb with gym pool sauna etc. Recommend strongly.
A quiet, quintessentially french village with excellent access to the vast ski area of the 3 Valleys.
A fantastic time was had by all, thank you.
To say we only booked the day before, the service and booking process was exceptional. Would highly recommend.
All the staff at Peak Retreats could not have been more helpful, both on the phone and by email.
Equipment hire was so straightford and really friendly service and we were in and out within about 7 minutes! We collected our lift passes without the need to queue and right across from the chalet - about 3 minutes in total. And we confirmed all our lessons and arrange some for my husband in about 4 minutes. Very impressed to achieved all that in the space of 14 minutes! In the passed this has taken us half a day. Thank you
Everything that was arranged went exactly to plan, it was accurate and ready, no fuss, no confusion, very simple and enjoyable.
Peak Retreats service and communications were excellent throughout and even managed to get our 2 parties (separate bookings) co-located, allowing for all 8 of us to have a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday! Looking forward to booking with Peak Retreats again!
We had a fantastic time and the whole trip was organised to an exceptionally high standard by Peak Retreats…Not something I am used to from your competitors so please pass on my thanks. We will certainly use you again in the future.
Definitely go to Aussois as it is brilliant
Apartments were great for the size of the party and easy enough to cater for the family.
The loveliest most unspoiled resort I have ever been too
We were a family party of ten ranging from 2 years old to 60 and the resort and accommodation were great for us all.
Chalet Delphine was spacious and comfortable. Access to the slopes was good and having use of the pool facilities was an added bonus.
Very nice clean comfortable appartments, very friendly resort
The resort was especially nice for intermediates with big wide runs and very few people despite it being the first week of the Easter holidays.
Totally impressed with every element at Monty - there are no bad bars or restaurants.
We love Serre Chevalier for its beauty, excellent weather, ski area and pretty villages, thermal waters at Monetier Les Bains and competitive prices.
We visited Les Contamines on the second to last week of the season...Skiing was excellent for spring snow and the ski area great.
Another great holiday courtesy of Peak Retreats. A very professional outfit.
Even though you had to pay for it, Wifi reception at L'arollaie was excellent (we've stayed at other places where the free wifi was rubbish!). Plus you could get a 'family' version for 3 devices (which didn't cost much more), and was great for us.
Very easy resort for children - everything on your doorstep.
Montgenevre is a great snowsure family resort
A nice village with very little need to queue for lifts.
We had a superb week. We would definitely go back... the accommodation, the setting and the skiing were superb.
oree des pistes is great for families with small children as its right on the piste and ski school is outside the door. it has great views and nearby restaurants are very nice. make use of the ski bus to the bottom of the lifts for beginner skiers until they are confident skiing down from loree des pistes.
It was a quiet resort, which we wanted, with plenty of skiing for all standards. Easy enough to ski across to the other 3 villages, so not skiing the same slopes all week. All in all a lovely resort to and would recommend it.
The accommodation was pleasant enough, but we didn't like having to collect the bedding on arrival. That said, the location of the apartment was fantastic. 75m walk to be on the slopes and you could ski back to your door. The shop and ski hire were a stones throw away and a lovely restaurant next door.
Excellent accommodation in a fantastic location. The reception ladies were very friendly and helpful. It is a bit of a trek to unload your luggage but it was well worth it and would not put us of returning.
Peak Retreats information and emails ahead of travel first class, never had that level of info and friendliness before. Would definitely use again
The service is excellent. The papework we recieved in the post were very clear and concise and helpful. Thank you.
Thanks to Peak Retreat Staff they are always so professional and friendly and helpful! They must take credit for getting your bookings as they provide such a personal service.
we were all exceedingly impressed with the level of service from Peak Retreats. I have since recommended them to all my friends as from the initial phonecall to yourselves I have received fabulous service. Thank you
Flexi booking on the tunnel worth its weight in gold
Eurotunnel Flexi-Plus - excellent! Why have I never thought of using this before? Fantastic facility! :-)
We were very impressed with the addition of flexi plus to our booking of the Eurotunnel. It was a lovely treat and meant we had complete flexibility with our train times.
Great skiing for all abilities and so many different area's and piste's to chose from. Highly recommend Marvel, the 5km long and easy green piste down into Morillon, absolutely fabulous on a sunny day skiing down between the pine trees and lots of interesting information posted at intervals for children to look out for.
Vaujany is a great little resort, perfect for families.
Many thanks for our holiday. The chalet accommodation at Kalinda Village at Tignes is quite outstanding. Good to have WI FI on the accommodation.
We were really impressed with the accommodation and the cleanliness.
Les Flocons d Argent apartments close to the ski school, with ski access through the patio doors, is an excellent bonus for those with small children. This made our group holiday so much more convenient, having requested that 5 families are sitauted close to one another.
Another excellent holiday - it was half term and we had lots of info before the holiday about it being busy because it was Paris half term - in all the years of skiing we have done we have never skiied on such quiet slopes with barely any queues apart from at 9am.
Benjamin and the other receptionist at the accommodation are superb! So smiley and helpful.
Fantastic holiday, beautiful resort & can't wait for next year!!
it's the best kept secret in the Alpes
Had a fabulous time and thought Val Cenis was perfect for a family with young children. Everything was close by and easily accessible.
Excellent resort for families and beginners
A fantastic family friendly resort, could not believe it was February half term with no lift queues. First time skiing for our 4 and 6 year old and they were confidently tackling greens within three days - amazing!
Convenient location with great access to slopes, shop, bar and facilities including swimmin pool, ice skating and bowling.
Resort is fantastic for skiers.
All in all st sorlin is an excellent choice for a budget family holiday. st sorlin is not glamorous, it doesnt have amazing night life and a huge choice of expensive restaurants and bars - its a pretty, unpretentious working village with nice restaurants, and st sorlin's situation is beautiful, with stunning views from every turn. the ski areas are wonderful, with more than enough variety to suit every one, its high enough to have good snow, there are hardly any queues for the lifts which is a joy. i would highly recommend this resort and peak retreats if you are skiing on a budget with family.
the resort is perfect for beginners or families: relaxed and good value for money.
Les Chalets des Jouvences is extremely convenient for skiing, ski hire and walking into the village. Facilities on site very good, underground parking a real bonus.
The whole resort is excellent for families. Warm, welcoming and lots to do. Once again an excellent holiday experience.
A great resort. Very few queues. Lots of options for intermediates. Lovely mountain restaurants.
Pleasantly surprised that the qs for lifts at half term were not long, one or two hot spots but not many. Lots of fun parks / boarder cross which the kids loved Great spot to explore the area from at Pre la Joux.
We liked the resort although it is definitely very family orientated and quite quiet at night time.
We stayed at the Chalets de Galibier which has excellent access to the Moulin Benjamin chair lift and ESF and is virtually ski in ski out.
Would go back again, for fifth time. Great holiday.
We had an excellent holiday and loved Termignon, particularly because it was so French with very little English spoken anywhere - great for practicising our French and feeling like we were on holiday in France as well as being on a skiiing holiday - not always the case in bigger, more international resorts. We were a mixed-ability group and the skiiing was great for beginners and intermediates, mostly lovely wide pistes through forests. For experts it was a bit limited, but this didn't really affect how much we enjoyed the holiday overall.
Great skiing. Lovely town. Good shops, supermarkets and restaurants.
The apartment was clean, well equipped, comfy, lovely sunny balcony, great pool and excellent staff.
We returned last Saturday from our Peak Retreats holiday in Les Saisies, and I am writing to say how pleased we were with it.
From the start, the service that we have received from you has been excellent; speedy responses to phone calls, personal attention from your staff and very efficient administration made the process as easy as it could be.
Thank you for a brilliant service and great holiday,
Thank you for helping make our first family skiing holiday a success. The resort recommendation was great and even though we were booking last minute we didn't have to worry about many details!
First class service, everything went according to plan
This is our 2nd trip with you. I used to have to do all the various booking etc myself, but you have made it so easy for me! Very efficient and helpful, and your in depth knowledge of the resorts really helps, we love skiing in France, and we drive there, so your service just fits like a glove. Thanks !!
Perfect for a mixed family group with varying agaes, skiing requirements etc. Very convenient for the slopes, and the whole area is quickly available, perfect fro meeting up at lunchtime to regroup, at apartment
We thought Hameau de Beaufontain was a brilliant spot. We had a really mixed party: us 2 celebrating our Ruby wedding anniversary and 36th skiing year, a daughter nursing a 4 mnth old baby, a pregnant daughter in law, an elite endurance athlete son, 3 Nordic skiers, 5 downhillers: everyone found their perfect resources for their needs, and on the doorstep, literally!
We would highly recommend Plan Peisey to anyone...The ski area is huge and I think even with another week we couldn't ski the whole of Paradiski. Looking forward to getting back there sometime soon.
L'Arollie was a great base and the staff there were fantastic.
A great resort for families, we love Les Gets so much we want to buy an apartment!
All aspects of the trip were extremely well arranged with all parts of the skiing package booked efficiently administered.
Quick and easy to organise with friendly staff at the end of the phone
I'd just like to say we had a really excellent time. The resort lived up to Xavier's recommendation; Lodge Hemera was superb. So overall we were delighted with our holiday and Peak Retreat's service. Although if there's any control you have over the weather, that would be much appreciated!
A very family friendly resort with excellent skiing especially for beginners and intermediates. Ski school is excellent and the pistes are very well groomed.
Great for families especially fairly young kids
Flexiplus on Eurotunnel was excellent. On way back arrived at Calais and lady at kiosk said 'toute de suite', we drove straight on train - last ones on before door closed! No waiting at all.
Very impressed with Morillon. It suited a family of a wide range of ages (25 - 66yrs)and abilities. As a tentative immediate skier it was superb and 'the boys', being very good skiers roamed far and wide, on and off-piste. They preferred Morillon as a base as it was not as busy as Flaine and they considered the pistes near to Morillon to be in much better condition and well groomed. We will all be back.
We had a great time. People very friendly, ski area interesting with the runs a good length and variety. Great mountain restaurants
Excellent that ski pass and lift pass enclosed with holiday details. Saves so much time as we then only had to get to the ski shop to get my son's skis and boots that morning.
We cannot thank enough the friendly, efficient and extremely knowledgeable staff at Peak Retreats who dealt with our booking. It was our first ski holiday and it was a truly positive and memorable experience.
I like dealing with peak retreat, the interface is professional and the outcome as defined - a rare level of customer service in today’s commoditised market!
A lovely village with several good restaurants
Lovely small village. very friendly.
We love the Frenchness of this community.
The Staff at Le Village are charming and helpful.
The arrangements were excellent and the resort exceeded expectations to the extent that we are considering it for a planned family get together next year with family from Seychelles comprising a mixed group of skiers and complete beginners of different ages.
The staff at Les Chalets des Gypses were extremely helpful and friendly at all times.
Very impressed with the Peak Retreats experience – lots of information provided beforehand and updates whilst we were away. We’ve driven to the Alps lots of times, but we have never had such good service from other travel operators – thank you all at Peak Retreats!
Thank you Peak Retreats for another great holiday. Lots of phone calls from us with questions and changes, but you were brilliant! Want to get booked up for next year.
We love peak retreats and your service is always excellent.
Just returned from our first ski holiday booked with yourselves over the new year. I would just like to say how pleased we were with your very efficient service from start to finish. Your staff are very friendly and informative, I have just spoken to a member of your staff who was able to reserve an apartment for next new year, which we were extremely pleased about. We would highly recommend your travel company and look forward to booking with you again in the future.
Just a quick email to say many thanks to you all for your help in booking our week away over new year, and to Simon? for his help late on Saturday the 28th when we got stuck in traffic and couldn't get hold of the accommodation to let them know we were going to be late!
As first time customers with you, we will definitely be using and recommending you again.
Very helpful and efficient staff
I thought the Peak Retreats staff were very helpful and knowledgeable.
I think the staff at peak were courteous and professional at all times. They demonstrated active listening and we're genuinely interested in customer service.
Peak Retreats were excellent. I could not have hoped for better service. Everyone I spoke to always got back to me about queries very quickly. Indeed I even called from France and they were back within 10 minutes with an answer by e mail. It was very impressive. I would not hesitate to use Peak Retreats again. All the staff were excellent and I was very impressed how staff picked up each others' emails so that I didn't have to wait long for responses
The flexi plus with the Eurotunnel was an added bonus on the way back, being able to take advantage of the free drink and food along with being priority loading.
Flexi plus was great to use a real asset
The Flexi Pass for the tunnel is excellent, now part of the holiday for our kids.
The flex+ ticket on the Eurotunnel was a god send as there were delays and it was very busy but with this ticket we got straight on the next train.
We had a great holiday and would recommend this package to friends. The apartments ticked all the boxes for us, underground secure parking, easy access to unload to your apartment, clean and well looked after, the pool and spa facilities were great and relaxing too with helpful reception if you needed anything.
We had a really enjoyable holiday and were delighted with the accommodation at Les Coches.
We've really enjoyed our week's holiday skiing in Tignes at the Santa Terra Residence. The accommodation was fantastic, and the Residence staff sorted any snags out very quickly.
Our apartment in Kalinda was absolutely lovely, could not fault it. Very clean.
The staff at Bleu Aigle were fantastic especially when there were some transport issues due to bad weather. They couldn't do enough to help.
Friendly for dogs and the vet you suggested was excellent, spoke english and easily booked via chalet reception.
The hotel is ideally placed for ski in/ ski out which was great. The room we had was comfortable and spacious with excellent views and I assume that this was the reason it was classified as superior.
The restaurant was superb - the evening meals were of a very high standard. The breakfast buffet too was excellent, served in the bar. The spa was also of a high standard and we appreciated this. Overall, we had a great holiday in an ideally located hotel with access to the vast ski area but feel that the hotel is maybe more suited to families
Accommodation well placed, good standard, ski locker & ski to door excellent.
Overall well placed accommodation in a very nice resort which we will revisit
Can I just say I think this service is brilliant and that peak retreats so far have been brilliant.
It makes a change to go with a professional company who so far appear to be on the ball and helpful.
Just to say thank you for everything so far, we can't wait to go now and are really looking forward to the great holiday we have booked with you.
As I have just returned from my two weeks holiday in France I would just like to say "Thank you" to everybody within Peak Retreats for their kind help, support and assistance with regard to my booking.
The whole team where fantastic keeping me informed of everything transport, apartment, resort etc.
I certainly will be back with you next year and I think the service that you provide is 100% plus.
The Flexi-plus for the Eurotunnel was brilliant and made the driving much less stressful not having to work to a fixed time
Les Balcons was a great place to stay and was very roomy and comfy. Great to have had interconnecting apartments with my sister and her family.
Excellent cleaning and bed making facility. Well organised. Good value and the cleaning staff in the appartments was excellent
Accommodation was excellent. Lovely and clean upon arrival. Maybe just a finer detail, but we always take an electric slow cooker with us for ski holidays as do many others. The provision of these as part of the standard apartment kitchen equipment would be much appreciated
I was very impressed with the staff at the accommodation - they went above and beyond on several occasions and for that I am very grateful.
Many people we met were in the resort for a 2nd- 6th time and all really liked it.
Peak Retreats sent us a great information pack about travel just before we left which was very helpful.
Thank you for suggesting this resort. So Peak Retreats did us proud and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others.
Just wanted to thank you for your advice on the Alpages apartments in Val Cenis. We had a brill time, apartments were great, snow was great, all in all I think we shall be returning next year. Thanks again.
Thanks for your help. We had a fantastic time and will be coming back next year.
Flocons D'Argent accommodation was amazingly convenient for the slopes, ski school, pool. Great for families with younger kids.
Any family who really want to get their children into skiing but cannot afford the prices of the major resorts really should consider smaller resorts like Aussois. When the children are learning you do not need hundreds of kilometres of piste. Aussois was ideal for us. We could go to the top of the mountain, ski down and easily find our sons in their different ski school groups. There may not be lots of runs here but there is good skiing even in the second week of April (2013). The tuition was good with ESF including English speaking instructors. We never queued once in our six days on the slopes, we picked up ski equipment for three boys under 8 in less than 15 minutes and ski school and the nursery slopes were within 50 metres of Les Flocons d'Argent apartments. It really cannot get any easier with young children.
With a good swimming pool for afternoon entertainment and a perfectly adequate apartment it meant we could have a skiing holiday for 5. Our boys are hooked now and we have found a way, certainly whilst they are learning, to make this an affordable family holiday. Peak Retreats are providing a fantastic service here and we are very glad we found them.
The Eurotunnel Flexiplus ticket was a fantastic part of the deal particularly after the long drive back to Calais. Not only do you get straight on but they give you loads of goodies as well. Our boys loved it.
We thoroughly enjoyed the skiing in le grand massif and the snow conditions were amazing for the altitude and time of year. We concluded that Les Carroz would definitely be our favourite base for skiing the Grand Massif area and hope to return there at some point. The ESF ski instructor was fantastic and the longer 3 hour lessons on offer were a bonus. We were really impressed with all of it. I don't think Les Chalets de Jouvence could be beaten for ski to and from the door convenience!
Great weather and skiing. A very good family holiday!
This accommodation was particularly good, as the owner is so helpful. The location is more or less ski in, ski out, and the village is well situated for 2 lifts. Great for families as the ski school is practically next door. Several good restaurants in the village.
Walk to the village along the wooden path is lovely.
We had a great time, the FlexiPlus, stopover in Dijon, the rental and the ESF lessons were all fantastic. You offer a great service and have brought the cost of skiing within reach of many more families.
Thank you very much for your help and advice.
Great Service and Support Team. The Directors Choice is well worth trying - Fantastic Apartments :)
Charlotte in reservations was excellent.
A big thank you from 4 very happy customers :)
Overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable holiday, particularly when comparing the price to other ski holidays we have taken. We would happily use Peak Retreats again in Aussois or another resort.
We had a really nice time in Samoens, the apartment was very nice and the car parking very easy.
Thought Reine des Pres was really good accommodation, brilliant with a car - 2 mins to the free carpark t the bottom of the cable car.
The Manager of the Chalets de Flambeau was exceptionally kind and we enjoyed our second visit to this residence. We love Val Cenis and would like to return at some point.
We felt that the location of the accommodation in terms of skiing was very good. All the services booked by peak retreats were excellent. We had a slight issue regarding the time of the transfer on departure, and the staff at peak retreats were very helpful and made a point of sorting it out and then phoning us to make sure that everything was ok which was much appreciated! Thank you.
Fabulous accommodation, appreciated that it was to a high standard, new and well maintained. Loved that you could ski to the fron door. The staff at the resort were friendly and helpful.
A really enjoyable holiday, good location and apartment. Flexiplus inclusion was excellent and flexibility of the booking process was appreciated. If we ski in europe next year we will look first to peak retreats and the same ski area.
Eurotunnel Flexiplus ticket was staggeringly good value.
If you hire your skis from Twinner they look after your shoes during the day and then keep your skis and boots at their shop. You walk straight out of their back door to the cable car.
The combination of the very picturesque resort of La Rosiere, the luxury apartment in Les Cimes Blanches and the unseasonable amount of snow providing excellent skiing was just what we needed to relax and unwind and recharge our batteries.
Lovely Apartments - spacious, clean and comfortable. The lift was close by (just a 2 min walk) and you could ski back to the door. The shop in Cimes Blanche was ok, but didn't have milk on 2 days. A short drive to the main resort, or walk through the woods, was required. Lovely leisure facilities, but the pool really could be several degrees warmer! - otherwise fantastic. Really enjoyed and would strongly recommend it
Overall Les deux Alpes is a great resort for all levels of skiier. All the restaurant staff, lift attendents and other staff in and around the resort were friendly, welcoming and helpful. A good resort for families at Easter as quiet on the slopes and not too rowdy in the village.
Le Buet is excellent value for money, you can't argue with what you get for the price. Our studio was plenty big enough for the 4 of us.
Very much enjoyed our stay in Morillion and would definately recommend the hotel and the resort to other skiing families.
Le Morillion Hotel was an excellent accommodation. We are a family of 5 and we stayed very comfortably with access to spa facillities and an extremely good quality resturaunt, sitting down to a 5 course meal every night! We enjoyed our holidy immensely
Morillon 1100 is a small friendly resort, perfect for families, beginners and intermediate skiers and snowboarders.
Always worth a walk into the village in the evening as the shops remain open and other activities happening.
The combination of the very picturesque resort of La Rosiere, the luxury apartment in Les Cimes Blanches and the unseasonable amount of snow providing excellent skiing was just what we needed to relax and unwind and recharge our batteries.
It's excellent for families with young children learning to ski
Just like to say a huge thank you to all at peak retreats for organising a very successful skiing holiday at Sainte Foy France! The accommodation was perfect for our group! The weather was average but we managed to ski every day.
Staff at Peak Retreats were very helpful in sorting out alternatives when couldn't make original dates.
It only has a small microwave and hobs so if you bring your own pre-prepared food make sure it will be suitable for that set up ie a large lasagne in a big dish will not fit!
Our 3rd trip to the same accommodation/ resort, and it was as superb as ever.
Staff at the accommodation were really helpful and friendly. They also ran a highly efficient process on arrival.
Flexi Plus on the Eurotunnel is fabulous and so well received when on a long car journey!
The Euortunnel Flexi Upgrade is fantastic, its worth noting that the club lounge doesn't open for food until 6am.
It was very helpful having the ski passes posted before the holiday, saving one time consuming task on a busy arrival day.
Staff at the accommodation were really helpful and friendly. They also ran a highly efficient process on arrival.
Our children really enjoyed the ice rink, open from 3 till 7.
Excellent apartment and all queries at Les Balcons reception dealt with very swiftly/efficiently. Second year in same apartment would consider returning again.
I'm very impressed by Peak Retreats. I had honestly never heard of your company and only came across you while looking for accommodation in Samoens (having skied there on my last ski trip 6 or 7 years ago). My first experience was a little irritating (but really my own fault for leaving things to the last minute). Having found what I thought was the perfect accommodation, I requested it. Unfortunately, it seems someone else had just beaten us to it, however, from this point on everything went perfectly. Congratulations on building and running such a great team. In a way, I hope you don't grow too large - it can be hard to maintain this level of focus and service as an organisation grows. I shall certainly recommend Peak Retreats to my friends.
The accommodation we ended up with was perfect for what we needed (and quite possibly in some ways more suitable than what I first requested). It was pretty clear to me (since I'd been to Samoens before) that Julia knew exactly what she was talking about, as did her other colleagues I dealt with. This gives you great confidence when making a booking - you can always get a clear answer and fast, accurate information.
The service I received from your company was very good and I would not hesitate to use Peak Retreats again and would happily recommend to someone else – I had telephone and email contact with 2 different representatives and both were excellent: knowledgeable, friendly and professional throughout, which was especially important to me as this was my first family ski holiday and I required a lot of advice.
Having Flexi-Plus for Euro Tunnel is a vote winner!
Cote Brune gives excellent friendly service and you cannot get closer to the slopes
Your staff were great over the phone. Very personal and personable! Friendly and efficient in all dealings with us. Could not ask for more.
Thank you for the service you have provided and I have already recommended you to several people already and won’t hesitate in coming back to you in the future!
Lottie @ Peak Retreats was the best and most helpful member of staff I have ever come across. A credit to the company.
Peak Retreats were exceptional! I really liked the emails just before we went about traffic conditions, and about what was going on in the resort during our stay, In the resort the ski hire shop said "Peak Retreats" were the best company to deal with which made me feel good about booking them. I also liked the checklist of things to think about before travelling by car.
Your staff have been incredibly helpful and accommodating throughout all our dealings with them and we would definitely use you as a company again.
Just to say thank you. We were very pleased with the accommodation and resort and this was partly due to the booking staff taking the trouble to work out what would suit us personally. Even the weather was perfect.
An excellent holiday. The resort suited us pretty perfectly and the accommodation aswell. We were very happy with everything really although, as warned, the high number of skiers and snowboarders during half term was a bit of a problem. We would try and avoid that week if we could.
Really positive sign to get this feedback from you, gives me confidence in Peak Retreats and I will book again with you and encourage others to do so. Small touch, big difference!!
The information, advice and driving directions were really helpful, particularly the warning about travelling and info on holidaying at half term.
Peak Retreats superb. Your staff have always been most courteous and helpful. Thank-you!
Great service and excellent follow up when a slight issue was raised, very impressed with staff knowledge and helpfulness at Peak Retreats.
Peak retreats staff were friendly and very helpful, always.
Thank you for dealing with our complaint so well!
I was really happy with all the services I received from Peak Retreats.
Le Barillon Restaurant is excellent, and for a quieter drink on the slopes head to the L'Alpage nearer to the summit. The pre-booking makes your arrival into the resort all the smoother as you get sorted. It also very competitive on price.
This resort is very much for families if you are looking for somewhere to go out to a different restaurant each night then this is not for you. The restaurant at Flocon D'argent does excellent takeaway.
The magic night at the pizza restaurant and the torch event on ski slopes! Very few eating and drinking places and not much variety in food and if want early eve sittings worth booking.
Pool is good but get there early or gets very busy. Internet ok but not very fast. TV only French channels so worth stocking up on DVDs etc. Not as much English spoken as expected.
Great resort for families with beginner kids - worked really well for us.
La Grange Restaurant in Les Eucherts was excellent. If staying in Les Eucherts need to be at the supermarket very early to buy the croissants!
The restaurant a Table de Finine a Samoens is excellent.
We had a great holiday at Le Village de Lessy. The accommodation was superb, it was very clean and spacious.
I cannot imagine ever finding more convenient accommodation - my son literally skied down the slopes and straight into the garage, without even taking his skis off (not to be recommended!) The residences provided everything you could need and much of it for free e.g. free toboggan hire, free DVD players with a selection of films
Our apartments were great and we really appreciated having our friends in the apartment next door, it felt like we had one large house between us.
The two women at the Reception Desk at Chalets de Neiges in Oz are superb.
The Chalet des Neiges apartment blocks are in keeping with the wooden chalet style of the attractive, purpose-built village and are run by very friendly and helpful people. There is a swimming pool, sauna and restaurant but we have never had time/inclination to use them, however we did skate on the small ice-rink on the last day.
The Hotel was great for our purposes and well located
In general the holiday was great, the resort was fantastic (even for February half term, the lift queues and pistes were relatively quiet), and the accommodation was fine.
The manager was very helpful. Parking facilities were fantastic! Can't wait to return!
All excellent as always. The flexi plus is a fantastic benefit. The speed of getting to the next train and the refreshments lounge make a great start to the holiday.
The FlexiPlus is great.
Flexi plus - what a joy
FlexiPlus was really good as there were long queues coming back but we sailed through. Brilliant. would recommend doing that again, and the provision of sandwiches and drink at the lounge was very welcome after a long drive which were eaten on the journey
Philippe at Skiset told us that Peak Retreats is a great company and the best tour operator! I would return the compliment to Philippe - never before have we all had so much fun getting kitted out!
Last year the last 3 had private lessons but having taken the children for 12 excellent Alpine Stars lessons on a dry ski slope, Snowtrax, before we came, we risked putting four into ESF ski school. It was excellent for the children in spite of having 15 in each group, and they loved their teachers, made friends & passed their 1* and 2* respectively. They also took part in the ESF evening torchlight procession down the green runs. Their parents also thoroughly enjoyed their level 1 & 2 groups, which were smaller, and often hilarious. The remaining 4 of us skied the reds mainly, plus the longest black in Europe(16km), the snow park and some red/black mogul fields. Something for everyone and we will be returning next year!
In beginners group, we were lucky to have a good instructor who spoke good English. This was much appreciated.
Everything was great and beyond our expectations from the resort itself, the ski school was amazing
Lift passes sent in advance was excellent and just one thing less to think about on arrival.
The transfers worked very well despite a small hiccup on the timing of the return journey but this was rectified immediately I phoned them, so I have no complaints about that.
I would like to thank your staff for recommending the Golf Hotel in Brides-les-Bains. The food in the Golf was fantastic
Everything was great and beyond our expectations from the resort itself, the ski school was amazing even down to the feller in the hire shop
We had a great holiday at Le Village de Lessy. The accommodation was superb, it was very clean and spacious. The skiing was great and we found the slopes uncrowded and didn’t have to wait at the chair lifts.
We are already looking forward to next year’s trip!!
Show shoe hire for one day was particularly enjoyable as a change from skiing. Spa booking worked perfectly. A LOT of lifts to get from reception to garage to room to ski lockers to slopes !
Perfect location for the hotel. It's small but friendly and meals are very good. We've been 3 times and would recommend it. Having our car with us we also had the flexibility to visit other resorts.
We had a fantastic time! We had snow the first day and then brilliant sunshine. The Hotel was great for our purposes and well located
Very convenient - short distance to everything - slopes/restaurants/shops
The Oree des Neiges is very good, really clean, modern, smart accommodation, and it is ski in, ski out which is great, just beside the lift.
The Oree des Neiges was particularly good accommodation, as was the other place in Valandry with the pool (Oree des Cimes). Both are very accessible to the main part of Les Arcs. We would defintely book again.
The restaurant at Flocon D'argent does excellent take-aways.
The snow shoe trekking with Evolution 2 for the panoramic views was excellent and great fun.
We loved Samoens and found Peak Retreats very nice to deal with.
La Montana pizza restaurant worth a visit and the torch light procession and fireworks were surprisingly good in a very friendly resort. All in all a great holiday.
Pretty resort. Small area for skiing, particularly if weather is poor.
Loved this resort! Take a taxi to Carre Four market. 1km out of town.
We have enjoyed our best family holiday to date! The travel arrangements and resort exceeded our expectations.
Fantastic ski-in ski-out location and friendly staff
We love Les Carroz and Les Chalet de Jouvence was brilliant accommodation, can't really fault it.
Superb Hotel with excellent food and service throughout our weeks stay. Warm, clean well decorated and furnished rooms with a small pool complex open in the evenings just in time for our return from the slopes.
Reception staff were very helpful, there should be more storage space in the apartments.
The FlexiPlus option on the Eurotunnel is a real bonus. It makes the journey so much less stressful.
We had a problem with the transfer but it was resolved to our satisfaction very quickly very efficiently and we were totally satisfied with the action. Of course things go wrong and the measure of a good company is how these are resolved .. full marks!
We received a fantastic service with regard to the lift pass arrangements and we were able to take advantage of a special offer which saved us and others in our party a great deal of money - thank you!
There is now an escalator up to the slopes via the Lift Pass ticket office. There are also lockers available here if you need them. One member of our party required medical attention after a serious fall. The medical team in Les Gets were excellent. Doctors spoke excellent English and all X Rays and correction of the dislocated shoulder were done in the resort- not requiring transfer to hospital.
The resort was lovely, reception staff were very helpful
Superb Hotel with excellent food and service throughout our weeks stay. Warm, Clean well decorated and furnished rooms with a small pool complex open in the evenings just in time for our return from the slopes. Fortunate to have great snow so we were able to ski virtually to the door of the hotel and a short walk to the cabin in the mornings. We highly recommend the resort for beginners and intermediates as many wide and tree lined runs which interlinked with other resorts. Thank you we shall be booking again!
Wonderful holiday . Will be saving to come back next year.
Similar price to booking direct but less hassle when booking with Peak Retreats.
We have found dealing with Peak Retreats and the staff you have a pleasant and welcome experience, like things should be!
Just a huge thank you, yet again. Speak to you to book again.
All arrangements made successfully from Afghanistan via fragile e-mail and phone link. Great assistance from Charlotte. Arrangements for rental clothing very good. All worked perfectly. Much appreciated.
The gentleman I spoke to was hugely helpful in narrowing down which resort and accommodation would suit us best. We loved Vallandry!
The staff were superb, friendly, helpful and fun telling me my French is good when it isn't!
We were happy not to have evening entertainment and as the Hotel facilities and Restaurant were excellent, we could ask for no more.
The FlexiPlus is a great benefit
sport 2000 (as used by peak retreats for ski hire) are excellent
Last minute lift pass arrangements were outstanding, thanks.
Nice and quiet resort don't tell anyone else. Keep it a secret
We must thank Cathy in particular for her advice and support in switching accommodation- she was fantastic!
Excellent accommodation with use of pool sauna Jacuzzi area. Great addition to have the heated boot racks and ski lockers.
Skiset at l'Oree de Cimes were excellent for ski rental.
Ski school instruction good quality and our children made fantastic progress
Just a quick note to say we had an amazing week a Le Rosiere. The apartment complex was superb, especially the pool and leisure facilities. The lifts and pistes were excellent, we didn't have to queue once. We were also blessed by plenty of snow.
Excellent boulangerie/pattiserie in Morillon plus well stocked shop. Resort offers fantastic skiing straight from the front door. Lots of runs that are were very quiet in January with excellent conditions. Ski school instruction good quality and our children made fantastic progress
Resort offers fantastic skiing straight from the front door. Lots of runs that are were very quiet in January with excellent conditions.
The lovely people at Peak Retreats take all the worry out of the booking process, even arranging last minute changes to required extras were dealt with efficiently, thank you to you all. This is my fifth skiing trip to Val Cenis, but the first time using Peak Retreats it certainly won't be the last.
On the way home bad weather meant that we took many hours longer to get to Calais, hence FlexiPlus was a real bonus.
I was very impressed with the accommodation in Briancon. The bedrooms were huge and had unusually comfortable beds. All the bathrooms, loos etc were very nice. Having 2 en-suites was very good too. And of course the location right next to the gondola and the ski hire shop was great. I came home by train – the railway station was only 10 minutes walk away. And five minutes walk away there was a nice little area with boulangeries, bars, restaurants etc. And being a town there were loads of facilities including nice big supermarkets.
We are just back from our holiday in Morillon, and I wanted to thank you for the time and effort you took to make everything go smoothly. We had a great time there, and want to go back to do the bits we couldn't get to this year. You were able to deal with all of our questions and needs, and everything went like clockwork, no hitches at all, very impressive! I've never used your services before, my loss obviously! In the past I have had to do all the sorting out myself which is time consuming and not good for the nervous system, but this year that wasn't a problem at all.
The apartment was lovely and the added bonus of having an English lady to help us once there was even better.
We always drive over to resort, which fits well with your approach too, so we were talking the same language from day one. We will definitely be back next year.
The bed was the BEST we have slept in within a Ski resort
Sport 2000 La Poudreuse fantastic service
I have been to the Chalet du Gypses twice now, and I think that it is one of the best chalets I have stayed in the Alps. Great ski in ski out, the lockers are very accessible, lovely appartment, great spa area, friendly and helpful staff and not too crowded. I'd thoroughly recommend it.
Loved the resort especially the ski connection into Italy, it was one of our best skiing so very happy overall.
Excellent accommodation and resort especially for families with slightly older children.
Chalet Rose was lovely. I recommended chalet no.2 which overlooks the pool.
Very impressed with everything you arranged. You were extremely efficient, endlessly helpful and spot-on with your recommendations. I would recommend you to anyone! We've had several holidays with you and all have been of a very high standard, professionally handled and extremely reliable. We'll be back again - thanks!
Le Refugee de l'Alpage is an excellent size and well equipped.
Peak Retreats are fantastic. They provided us with thorough and accurate information pre-holiday and we would definitely book through Peak Retreats again.
Thanks to Peak Retreats staff! This was our first skiing holiday, and the staff were extremely helpful through the booking process, providing advice and answering my questions.
Fantastic, very slick arrangements, full compliments to the peak retreats team for making it so easy and enjoyable, it was exactly as explained on the phone, and very reasobale priced
Excellent very good attention to detail particularly regarding the insurance for my daughter.
The help i recieved when booking was very good it was a refreshing change to talk to some one who new what i needed for a young family to have a lovely holiday.
From the ease of booking, excellent documentation, superb accommodation and resort it was a perfect holiday.
Thanks for all your help with our booking, Charlotte in oarticular was extremely helpful from our first enquiry onwards. All your staff were very helpful.
Superb service from Peak Retreats First time we have self catered on. Ski holiday and it was great We took advantage of the lie in no rush holiday and skied. Half day passes most days superb Easter skiing.
I would like to thank Xavier not only for taking the time to email me personally following completion of a previous survey but also for recommending Samoens as an alternative resort to Vaujany. It's the first time we've skied Le Grand Massif and enjoyed the whole experience immensely and will definitely be returning in the future.
Flexipass on Eurotunnel is fantastic!
The Flexi ticket really was good to have, less stress trying to make a particular crossing during the busy Easter period.
Eurotunnel flexi plus upgrade is excellent - great flexibility and the food is a bonus!
Flexi-plus on Eurotunnel was fantastic as it meant no panics or long waits and kids loved 'VIP' treatment at boarding centre.
Perfect for families with young children. A lovely resort with friendly restaurants and very family orientated.
Les houches very good for beginners,lots of easy blue runs. argentiere and grand montet super range of runs.
Brilliant for families for dropping off at ski school, skiing for a few hours and coming back again and taking small children skiing afterwards. The lift operators were brilliant with small children, the pistes not crowded. We loved it so much we stayed 3 extra days. Jardin Alpin was good accommodation. B13 was bigger than A31 so more consistency in size would be better. B13 needs mattress covers too. A31 needs more storage space. Both need hairdriers. BUT ON THE WHOLE IT WAS BRILLIANT AND WE WILL DEFINITELY BOOK AGAIN. THANK YOU
The location of the accomodation was brilliant - and the standard was very good too
Its a great base allowing you to ski many different resorts and follow the weather. Always take a car to this resort unless you are first times skiers in which case you will struggle to find a better resort.
Location was excellent. Resort was great and skiing superb. Will definitely return.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, they accommodated us in every way and we would definitely recommend staying there to any family looking for a holiday break.
Excellent resort for a amixed party-- skiers/ beginners/ Mum , Dad and two young couples-- loads to do for everyone. The pool and hot tub at the apartment were fantastic -- great for ski tiered legs!! The apartment was very well equipped , very clean and very comfortable. Access to thelift system was excelelnt. Would recommend and will hopefully return.
The apartment was very spacious and well equipped - far better than we expected and it was great to have bakery service. Great Accommodation with the pool, sauna and steam room and pool table.
We have had many holidays with P.R. and have recommended you to a lot of friends and family. Most of whom have travelled with you , enjoyed and returned. Thanks for a great service.
Les Carroz was perfect for our skiing, in spite of it being a very warm week. Our apartment, Les Fermes du Soliel, was also excellent, but don't want to recommend it too much, in case we can't get a booking next year! Will certainly go back.
We have been to Notre Dame quite a few times and know it is quiet, which would not be everyones cup of tea, also the skiing is small in Notre Dame, but because of its link with Les Saisies and the fact that you can drive there makes it a very good resort.
The accomodation was expensive considering we booked only 5 weeks prior to arrival and the accomodation was very quite. But on the whole it was good and we would be interested in booking the same resort and accomodation next year.
Really happy with the service we received from Peak Retreats - appreciated the more personal touch. Glad we booked a larger apartment (2-5 persons) for just my partner and me.
The resort staff at The Chalet De Neiges were top class. Very friendly and efficient.
PO ferry cost is an excellent deal.
The swimming pool at Flocons D'Argent was an excellent family activity after a day of skiing. If like us you arrive on Saturday and the time is taking up sorting out accommodation etc but not to get shopping, the large supermarket in Modane is excellent and much cheaper than the resort and is less than 10 mins drive down the mountain. But beware it is closed on Sunday afternoon!
You staff have great telephone manners and should be congratulated.
This was a convenience last minute ski week with my eldest son, as he cannot join us for our 2 week ski trip over Easter. We normally take a 4 star apartment, but for the two of us Jardin Alpin was excellent..great value. Know the area well, usually stay in Les Carroz, Morillon a bit dead off season, but not a problem for the two of us.A few lights bulbs gone fut and a sink that did not hold water! Kitchen well kitted out and beds comfortable. Great hot water. Thank you.
Everyone in the complex was brilliant. Many thanks!
Overall an excellent holiday and service from Peak Retreats. Staff very helpful during the booking phase (phoned on Saturday, just after office had closed and someone still picked up the phone and helped with our booking). Also, Charlotte went above and beyond by trying to contact us at the Chalet to advise us that our friends flight had been delayed, so as to ensure I didn't set off earlier than needed to pick them up from Chambery Airport.
The Pool and Spa Facilties at Chalets Flambeau are fantastic. Seperate kids paddling pool added bonus
Very well organized includng infomation package before travelling
Hotel Alba where we stayed the appartment was very spacious and clean lots of hot water.
Excellent - worked perfectly - very efficient - saved loads of time. Thank you.
Peak Retreats did a wonderful job and made booking a holiday so easy and stressfree.
All our queries were dealt with promptly prior to departure. Thanks PR for all your hard work.
Thank you for ensuring the rise in VAT was not a problem on site for us. many other clients being asked to pay extra on depature. Not for us. Nice having linen sorted for us for arrival
Thanks very much. Particularly impressed with your telephone advice and helpfulness of staff on our many telephone calls! Thanks, especially to Charlotte who "hooked us" in with her calm, honset, non pushy and open attitiude . Her knowledge of the hotel and ski lift access was what first grabbed my interest.
Peak retreats staff very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly on the phone.
We had an excellent largely hassle free holiday and I will definitely use peak retreats in the future.
The staff at Peak Retreats were very professional and extreemly helpful.
Overall a great holiday, we are huge fans of peak retreats and look forward to booking with you again next year.
2nd year at Les Gets and with Peak Retreats and had a great time many thanks.
Flexi Plus was excellant. If we had known how useful it was we would have taken more advantage.
Flexi Plus on train is an excellent service. Shame with a roof box we could not access the lounge.
Eurotunnel Flexiplus is excellent and will significant holdups on return journey knowing that time was not critical was a great relief.
Flexiplus is fabulous!! Definitely saved us time...we were very grateful
The flexi pass for the euro tunnel makes travelling at peak times hassle free
Thought the flexi plus ticket on the eurostar was fantastic.
Snowpdrop were a very friendly and reliable company
Arranged en route accomodation for us while we were enroute which was fab ! Though the extra £50 we were charged for your help in addition to hotel room charge was rather steep !!!!! And nobody bothered to mention this...
The en route accomodation was functional and fine, good value. Be careful the sat nav looses itself round Reims, and it was a bit tricky until I just followed the road signs.
Eric hotel in Dole Comfortable, clean and friendly place to spend a night.
We chose Peak Retreats because I searched on Google for Les Flocon's d'Argent. The accommodation's location was fantastic.
Our first holiday skiing with our children (ages 6 and 8) and we had a fantastic time. The resport was perfect for children and the accomodation perfectly sited so we could ski back to the door and it took 2 minutes to get to the ski school meeting place in the morning. Ski school was well organised and effective and even in half term week lift queues were minimal. I think we will back next year as the location/resort was so good for families with beginner children.
Au Coeur du village hotel is excellent,the restaurant is 1st class,for food and service
La Norma was a wonderful friendly small resort. Excellent skiing and great family pares-ski activities. We had a terrific time - thank you to the lady who suggested it to us!
We stayed in Les Eucherts the newer and prettier part of La Rosiere this is an excellent family resport especially for beginners and intermediates just about enough to keep an advance skier happy that said plenty of excellent off piste skiing for the advance skier. Nightlife in Les Eucherts is very limited but hence an excellent family resort. This was our 3rd time of skiing in this resort and that is because the children now aged 7 and 9 years love it and the ESF ski school. At the end of this holiday both our children had the confidence and competence to ski short black runs. No doubt will return next season if not before!
La Rosiere is an excellent place for beginners compared with Les Arcs.
Thanks you to the invaluable help from the company director when we managed to get lost on our journey in France. The help we recieved was second to none and once at the resort we relaxed and had the best holiday we've had in years!!
Accommodation was the best, most convenient we have ever stayed in - great facilities and right on the slopes. I think we will book it again every year for the next 10 years!
Great accommodation - very comfortable and great location with ski in and out.
We were delighted with the Cote Brune - great location, lovely, comfortable rooms, with plenty of storage, delicious evening meals and breakfasts, and an especially warm and friendly service from our waitress Priscillia each evening. It was everything we could have wanted and more!
Having the ski hire shop on-site was great. With ski in and ski out everything in one place.
Our accommodation was 2km up hill out of town. I would book in or near the center next time. The swimming pool was great and with the slope right next to the apartment was fantastic.
We had a great time. The accomodation was excellent and everything went to plan.
Le Buet has an excellent location - ski in ski out.
I really liked this hotel, it was warm, comfortable, lovely food, and very friendly. I felt very welcome.
Fantastic time had by all 4 families in the party. Accommodation bigger than any we've stayed in before. Friendly/ helpful staff. Marillon by far the best mountain/ resort, as Flaine busy and overskied. Kids enjoyed the pool and the sledging area close by. Flexi Plus an absolute must. Thanks for all your help to make it a memorable holiday.
Such a lovely,convenient resort for beginners/children we will return.
We have rated the apres ski / shopping low as there were very few facilities in the village - this was not a problem for us however - we loved the quietness and the location was stunning. The easy access to such a huge skiing area is what makes this resort a winner!
The actual position of the apartment in the building and the whole booking process was amazing. It was our first family ski and you all made it very memorable and a real pleasure to remember. Thank you.
Accommodation in etiole des cimes was very good (sainte foy)
This was our first skiing holiday and would definately recommend Neige et Roc for accommodation was great and such friendly and helpful staff, we plan on returning next year
The underground parking was excellent and meant we could access the flat by lift easily, and access the pool, spa area without going outside. Pool/spa excellent. Great not to have to book a time to use it. Well worth paying extra for accomodation to be able to access this.
Neige et Roc could do with some more chairs round the pool but apart from that no complaints. Excellent food and friendly staff. Relaxed atmosphere. Very good service. Ski bus worked fine.
We booked a 2 bed appartment and were surprised to find that we were put in a 3 bed one instead. Thought it must be a mistake but paperwork had our name on so just enjoyed the unexpected upgrade!! It was very nice not having to get the sofabed out. Really lovely accomodation and great skiing so can't wait for next year. Thank you Peak Retreats for another brilliant skiing holiday!
Our second trip to Termignon. It is a long long way from Termignon to the larger Val Cenis side so I continue to recommend driving to the gondola if possible. Termignon is good for beginners rather than the more advanced skier but there are some interesting short cuts and slightly off piste opportunities that make it more exciting.
Excellent service from all as always. 10 visits to Valloire now, must find a change. 11th will be to Valloire I am sure
saving up for the next holiday as we speak. Thank you
We love this family friendly resort, the friendliness of the people, the ESF ski instructors, the bar and restaurant owners who we have got to know over the years and the main reason we keep coming back. The resort has grown considerably in recent years with many new blocks of appartments having been constructed. There is a new olympic size skating rink currently being constructed which no doubt will attract more tourists.
The ski school in Vaujany was the best ski school that we have found for our children. The instructors were friendly, positive and very good. All three instructors that our children had were confident english speakers too. We were very impressed.
Excellent having the ski passes sent to our home before travelling - one less think to arrange on arrival!
Very pleased to recieve the lift passes by post and the ski school ticket in the hotel... saved a lot of hassle.
Speed of service from Peak Retreats has previously been speedy, had to chase up a few emails on a few occasions. I'm sure my requests/queries were being taken care of, however, would have been nice to receive an acknowledgement of email receipt and 'someone will be in touch shortly'. The information supplied through the post was great for guests travelling via car but feel the info should have been more targeted for different guests - we were travelling via Eurostar, so some helpful tips about this would have been more useful.
Great resort for beginners and families. A kettle and duvets would be a nice touch rather than pans and blankets. Great weeks skiing for beginners and families on a budget.
Fantastic friendly resort especially for our party varying from 4-50! The weather was great & pistes really well kept, no queues for the lifts and excellent wide pistes for helping young children progress.The accommodation of Les Fermes apartments was excellent with the added bonus of the pool & spa-great staff & rooms.
The apartment was very comfortable & spacious.
Very smooth. It all worked like clockwork. Keep up the good work.
Just well done again, Peak Retreats
Eurotunnel Flexi-plus - amazing value
Not many people know that with flexi plus you get a free pack up lunch, you could advertise this more.
We loved Samoens - genuine Haute Savoie village and excellent accomodation at the Reine Des Pres. Although everything was of a very high standard, it could have been cosier - the accommodation was barely warm enough and the reception area was somewhat impersonal. The pool and sauna area were great, however. The service in the shop opposite the accomodation (Sherpa) was excellent - the owners arranged a home delivery and even took us round in their car. Very friendly place - we would definitely go back.
Perfect for through the trees ski-ing and messing about with kids! Lift people were so friendly and helpful. We love the accomodation and service you offer and will be back!
Peak Retreats consistently provide excellent value-for-money holidays, with knowledgeable staff and super customer care, both at the Portsmouth office, and from the accommodation staff at the resort who act on behalf of Peak Retreats clients. We are regular Peak Retreats customers, for these very reasons. Will be back again in 2013!
Flexi plus was an excellent bonus
The residence staff and services offered were excellent. - DVD player hire was particularly good, as was the pool, sauna, gym, pool table, childrens play area and Wii. Fantastic residence, shame about the distance to get to the slopes and the limited facilities of the resort.
Thank you for the information supplied that enabled us to find the residence with ease.
The accommodation is very convenient for ski lift and easy walk into pretty town centre. lots of skiing to be had in immediate area for most abilities and lovely walks down tree lined slopes. would definitely go back!
This is our third visit through PR - we will use you again!
Euro tunnel was so efficient...loved the flexi pass as we came home a day early with no complications.
Morillon 1100 was a good choice for us. The apartment is close to the slopes and was well equipped. We recommend La Combe cafe/restaurant for coffee/chocolate etc
I am a beginner, aged 64, and was with my family. It was all superb as far as I was concerned.
The people at the chalet we booked were excellent. They allowed us to access the chalet early and, when we had a car problem, they rang a garage immediately to help solve it. Definitely the best chalet complex I have ever stayed in, well worth its four stars
We didn't arrange any extras before travelling but I rather stupidly left our holiday accommodation voucher at home. A quick phone call to Peak Retreats whilst en route solved this problem as your staff arranged for a fax to be sent ahead of our arrival in Montchavin. So a very big 'thank you' for being so efficient in dealing with my inefficiency!!
100% i will use peak retreats again
Had to share a taxi on the return owing to a sick driver, but this worked out ok.
Perfect location for family with young children as so close to 2 lifts. Bakery just below accommodation delicious goods and Sherpa supermarket very convenient and reasonable.
We felt that the accommodation was the most convenient for access to the slopes we have ever stayed in. We will certainly return to Vallandry.
The hotel is a stone throw from the gondola, the hotel is in very good order with excellent staff n management. I will go back again.
Charlotte at Peak Retreats is particularly helpful.
When one of my parties lift pass did not work on Boxing Day the level of service recieved from Peak Retreats was some of the best i have experienced. They sorted it out in no time at all.
I had a lot of tooing and froing with you over the booking and getting accurate costs. We also got charged twice regarding the end of stay cleaning charge which you then refunded.
Charlotte was excellent - very helpful and responsive - thank you!
Love love love the flexi plus. One very good reason for holidaying with Peak Retreats year after year.
The Flexi Plus arrangement was brilliant, first time we've used this and as we were travelling at a busy time over Christmas it made the journey much quicker.
We stayed at flocons d'Argent Aussois . It is a charming destination.
We stayed at flocons d'Argent Aussois . It is a charming destination.
Briancon is a long drive and the steep winding mountain approach road is a bit daunting especially in poor weather. Apartment was great plenty of room and well equipped. Sofa bed was quite uncomfortable to sit on for any length of time some cushions may help.
The staff at Hotel Cote Brune were fantastic.
The best ski package holiday we have ever had Euro tunnel flexi ticket was great no waiting Thank you
We had an excellent holiday staying at the Le Christiana apartments in La Tania. The accommodation was spotless and a good size. The views from both the front and rear were spectacular. The resort itself is great for both skiers and non skiers. There was always plenty going on both on the slopes and off. Several places to eat and take away food available too. Very accessible whether you were on skis or on foot. Really pleased that Peak Retreats have added this location to their brochure. Our holiday was made all the more enjoyable thanks to the excellent administration by the Staff at Peak Retreats - really can't praise them highly enough. The travel pack arrived in good time and contained everything we needed. Even though we added another person to our party just 5 days before we were due to travel! Peak Retreats were brilliant - no fuss, no drama they simply added the details and re-sent the paperwork. We prefer to drive and again the flexi-plus upgrade going via Eurotunnel meant we had a smooth and easy journey across to France. Overall one of the best holidays we've ever had. Will certainly be going away with Peak Retreats again, and would definitely go back to La Tania. Thank you to all the Staff at Peak Retreats.
The resort was exactly what we were looking for and we would consider visiting it again. We went to ski and get some family time, which we did. We were lucky enough to get an apartment looking out on to the slopes which was great.
An excellent holiday- Samoens has to be the best family ski-resort we've ever visited!
Very good access to the slopes - shopping was a little more difficult. The apartment was lovely and good value as there were 6 adults sharing. Very well equipped.
Taxi arranged from B.S.M - Sainte Foy - very satisfied with service and would definitely require again.
Lovely Apartments - spacious, clean and comfortable. The lift was close by (just a 2 min walk) and you could ski back to the door. The shop in Cimes Blanche was ok, but didn't have milk on 2 days. A short drive to the main resort, or walk through the woods, was required. Lovely leisure facilities. Really enjoyed and would strongly recommend it
