“Superb!”
Reviewed 13 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We wanted a large place for a family holiday. 14 in total - 6 children and 8 adults.
For many years my sons and I have been coming to the Alps each year for Le Tour and honed in on Alpe D'Huez, Vaujany and Les 2 Alpes as being a potential venue.
As soon as we read the details of the Mountain Chalet we thought yes!
Sara and Tim were great to deal with and when we arrived on the Sunday we were all impressed. The Chalet was much better than described and in an ideal location.
The views are to die for and opening the curtains in the morning became a ritual with the grandchildren - sun, cloud and one morning all the surrounding mountains were covered in snow.
The balcony is huge with BBQ and the downstairs verandah with the hot tub is spectacular. The lounge/ dining area/ kitchen are big and we always had plenty of room.
Being keen cyclists we had a large number of bikes and kit but the massive storage area by the front doors has loads of cycle racking oh and a Sauna.
Although situated on the main drag up to the village most of the traffic turns off lower down and takes the new road into the village so it is quiet.
You can walk into the village on a track or else cycle/ drive or catch the bus.
Just to reiterate the accommodation is first class and the amenities from wifi, Sky, hot tub etc, are really impressive.
The children are aged from 3 - 9 and they loved it.
There is so much to do in the summer not only in Alpe D'Huez but the surrounding area. You don't have to cycle up the 21 bends the children were able to cycle in many areas at the top of the village and enjoyed the luge, horse riding, swimming, climbing, ice skating etc,
We would love to come back and would thoroughly recommend The Chalet - try it you definitely won't be disappointed.

“Summer trip Alpe Dhuez at The Mountain Chalet”
Reviewed 19 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Had a brilliant stay at the Mountain Chalet. It is very well presented and has everything you'd need for a relaxing enjoyable stay. TV, wifi, and even had a hot tub and sauna. Ideal for either couples , family's or groups. Has lovely balcony with amazing views down the mountain and the famous 21 hair pin bends used during the Tour de France. I would recommended it to anyone for a winter ski break or summer adventure holiday. A must for adrenaline junkies is the via ferrata, Canyoning is also highly recommended, along with canoing. All can be booked at the information centre in Alpe DHuez village.

“Fantastic ski and holiday experience.”
Reviewed 2 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Great location. Next to the bus stop which runs frequently during the high ski season. We had limited service, but this didn't matter because the roads were clear and we took the car up to the top of the resort and parked for free close to the lifts.
It was a lovely walk up to the "O Bar" on Gill and Roger's day off. The burgers were awesome!
The local sports centre offered obstacle course / ropes course for the kids if they did't fancy skiiing for the afternoon. They thoroughly enjoyed this.
The chalet was perfect. Tim and Sara are continually looking for ways to improve what they offer and are prepared to ask for feedback and make renovations to the chalet as appropriate.
The hot tub was well used by the kids. It meant we didn't have to nag them to shower! ......and also meant we had to get in there quickly if we wanted to use it. The views from the hot tub are to die for. It is a smug feeling when you spur-on the cyclists as they near the top of the ascent up the hairpins from the comfort of the hot tub. I know where I would rather be - although I was able to cycle the "Mystical Ascent" as well.
Gill and Roger are great chalet hosts. I believe it is their 3rd season and they know what they are doing and do it very well.
Food was brilliant and plenty of it.
Thank you very very much.

“Perfect functional chalet in an iconic resort.”
Reviewed 28 March 2017 for a stay in December 2016

I was surprised at how large the skiing area in Alpe d'Huez is and this chalet has all you would need to enjoy the restore. It's a short walk from the main town, has a sauna, hot tub and the views across the valley are stunning. The hosts are welcoming, friendly, have a vast knowledge of the area and will go out of their way to accommodate. I will definitely be visiting again.

“Good in many ways but disappointing food and location is a bit out of the way.”
Reviewed 20 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Good amenities in terms of sauna and hot tub (the latter has fantastic views). Living room is spacious. There is a good sized boot room and ski storage area but note that boots are not individually heated (they are just on metal poles). Living room is spacious with good tv (Sky Sport, BBC etc.) and there is a separate snug room as mentioned by other reviewers. Most bedrooms are what you're expect in Savoyard style chalet (basic but clean and decent enough en-suite facilities) but note one bedroom is in the rafters and has no direct light of its own.

As commented by others you are reliant on buses or shanks pony to get around. Buses are pretty reliable but not frequent. It takes about 15 mins to walk to the main tourist office in normal shoes. Would not recommend the walk in ski boots. If snow is ok on Villages run you can ski pretty close to the chalet on the return run.

Most disappointing aspect was the food. Very basic, felt cheap and with a strong emphasis on how convenient or easy it is for the hosts to produce. Plus it just wasn't that good. It is filling and there is enough of it but that's all. The advertised beef bourginion is actually actually a very simple beef stew: not a beef bourginion. Thai curry is not what most people would recognise as a Thai curry. Suspect the soup is bought and not freshly made.

Afternoon tea was a bit of a joke. Very doubtful that it's home produced as it looked and tasted very much like it had been bought as a job lot from the cheap end of the local supermarket (the box of flapjacks or biscuits in Sainsbury's for £2 sort of thing) You do not get a fresh cake: just slices of a cake left on a plate for you. On the hosts day off the "cake" is a box of cheap supermarket biscuits.

Breakfast is ok but side choices are only boiled eggs or scrambled. Nothing else (most chalets offer daily selection which would vary from sausages, bacon, pancakes, French toast etc.).

On the hosts day off no fresh bread is delivered or provision made for that and you're not allowed to operate the oven to turn the frozen pastries into cooked ones. Again in other chalets I have known provision to be made for fresh bread to be delivered daily.

Someone who could cook could probably sort this side out pretty quickly. As it easy you feel you're being fobbed off with cheap, easy to produce food that's not that good. It's sad as this detracts from what is otherwise a good experience and what is in many ways a very good chalet.

Hi Peter, totally gutted with a great deal of your comments in respect of the food. I do need to put the record straight though in that ALL the afternoon cakes / biscuits are home cooked. The soup is also home cooked - nothing is made from processed ingredients or bought from a tin or other such starting point. We are very disappointed that you did not enjoy the food BUT we get an enormous amount of positive comments about the food as can be seen from AlL our other reviews on Trip Adviser. We are very glad you liked the other aspects of the chalet though and we would also point out that from next season we are offering transport for guests who prefer to ski out or get the Navette out. we cant please everyone and although we endeavour to do so, we have clearly failed in certain aspects as far as you are concerned. That said, we are extremely sure that you have not been to chalet that offers everything our chalet offers for the price we charge. We would love to have you back and show you that what we offer is extremely good value for money.
