We have had a lovely week again. Jerry looked after us so well and the food I cannot explain how lovely it is to have such delicious meals each night without having to lift a finger. Thanks Jerry and Bertina.
We stayed here as a family of five 8 years ago, and returned now with extra members as the family has expanded since - and again had the most fantastic holiday! The chalet is perfect - homely, clean and comfortable, with brilliant host and in-house chef Gerry! The food was incredible every night (as well as delicious breakfast and afternoon tea). We would love to come again and would recommend this chalet without a moments hesitation. Thanks for a great week!
This was our second visit to Chalet Bartavelle and once again we had a perfect holiday. It is a wonderful place to stay; everything is so comfortable, the food is just amazing, wine plentiful and we were so well looked after it was very hard to leave. Just perfect and I would recommend to anyone without hesitation.
Michelin quality food, beautifully complementing wine, a personal touch to help you through booking, advice on transport, lessons, ski passes, local attractions, the list goes on.
It's quite clear that Jerry and Bettina truly care about their guests and the quality of their stay, they were excellent both before and after booking, no detail was too small and their knowledge of the local area and "the best ways to do stuff" absolutely shone through.
They helped us with booking ski lessons for absolute beginners, advised on the best places to ski for the more experienced, they even managed to arrange for the hire gear that we had booked ourselves over the internet to be transferred to a more convenient location so that we got the most out of our first day on the slopes.
I haven't even got on to the best bit yet - the food. In my opinion, you won't find food of this quality elsewhere in the mountains, and certainly not at this price. We're fortunate enough to have eaten at some of the best Michelin recognised restaurants in the UK, Jerry's food is absolutely worthy of this kind of recognition. Fresh, innovative, generously portioned, well though through, and an entirely different menu every night. As a testament to this, every plate was left clean by every member of the party, every night. Not easy to achieve when you have several different tastes / palettes to cater for.
Would I go again..? I've already requested prices for next season to introduce a different group of people to this little gem near Meribel.
We stayed here for 5 nights in the middle of March and picked the best week for the snow and weather! The quality of the chalet, the food and the hosts were outstanding and made the holiday.
Chalet Bartavelle is impeccable inside and out, with a cosy living area, log burning fire and a lovely dining area for you all to sit and eat together. The bedrooms were comfy, nice bathrooms. All rooms were cleaned everyday and it was always lovely and warm. There is also free WIFI in the chalet which was useful.
Now this brings me on to the food, WOW!!! The host Jerry has worked at some of the best restaurants in London and his food if just amazing! Every evening was a different, mouth-watering menu from duck, lamb, steak... a different starter, main & dessert every evening. Wine was included at meal times, hot and cold breakfast and beautiful home cooked cakes for afternoon tea, you really don't need anything else after staying here and I'm sure even with the skiing I still went home a few pounds heavier :)
One of the best ski holidays I have been on!! ENJOY x
