We have just arrived back from a fantastic weeks skiing, staying in Chalet Algonquin. This is the second holiday we have had with Russ and Lucy, and the talented chef, Charlotte. The food was outstanding as usual and we were made to feel at home as soon as we arrived. Hayley and Adam were our hosts, both doing a fantastic job of looking after us, and taking us to the slopes in the morning, and collecting us in the afternoon.
I cannot say enough positive things about them all, everything was just perfect. The food that is produced is just out of this world. We will definitely return again.
It was one of the best week's skiing I have had. The chalet was in a great condition and I loved the viewing area and spacious lounge area. Both Charlotte and Haley were the best hosts I have had on a ski holiday, the food and service they provided was top notch (even got a very nice Birthday cake!). Adam was a great driver, he was never late and was a great laugh. My only concern going into the holiday was the location being so low down however being driven every day was amazing and being so close to the Vanoise express was really handy as you could decide at Breakfast which resort we were going to!
Only recommendation would be for a wardrobe in the room for more hanging up space.
We stayed here for Christmas 2016 with my older parents and had a fantastic holiday. The chalet is beautiful and warm and the bedrooms are spacious with ensuite bathrooms with underfloor heating. We cannot fault the whole experience.We were looked after wonderfully by Charlotte ,Hayley and Adam. Charlotte is a fantasic cook and gave us delicious food every night.She was also great at adapting to special diets as we had a few requirements. She was very ably assisted by Hayley who keeps the chalet in immaculate condition. Then Adam took us to the lift of choice everyday and also collected us .He loaded the skis and poles every morning and this was better than being right on the slopes as we had no walking to do in our ski boots. Russ was great at communication before the holiday and arranging everything that we needed. You have a very special team here Russ and I can totally recommend this company and can't wait to return.
Just returned from a week staying at Chalet Algonquin, under the management of White Stripe Mountain Lodge.
Comms from booking to arrival were excellent. Chalet was immaculate inside with lots of rustic charm. Showers were excellent with loads of hot water. Bedrooms were of a good size and the beds very comfy with extra pillows/blankets available. Plenty of storage available for ski stuff(boots indoors in the warm). Was a little concerned that the slopes were a 5 minute drive away but shouldn't have worried. Adam was our driver/fire lighter/general top bloke who came over every morning, loaded all our stuff into his van and drove us all to a lift of our choosing. He did the same at the end of every day skiing and it was actually much easier than many of the ski in/ski out places I've stayed in previously. Then there was the food....WOW. An amazing menu superbly prepared by the phenomenal Charlotte assisted by Hayley whose attention to detail was second to none. They made us all feel so special and nothing was too much trouble. All in all by far the best chalet team you could wish for. I could go on and on! The skiing was great too,( although to ski the la Plagne side of paradiski meant a fair few lifts before you got into the main resort) and some of the tree lined runs in vallandry were a real pleasure. All in all a 5 star experience that was made so memorable by the chalet team. Russ, you've got a great bunch there, all the very best for the rest of the season.
We stayed in chalet Iris in March and booked a last minute ski holiday. Communication with Russ was very easy before we left the UK and he kindly picked us up from our transfer bus. The chalet was cosy and clean and had everything we needed. The food was exceptional throughout our stay. We were fortunate enough to have different chalet hosts for half a week each. Charlotte's food was absolutely fantastic and I loved talking to her about cooking. Liam and Kate were also excellent chef's and great fun to chat to. We had previously only stayed in chalets where we were able to walk to the nearest lift so initially I was reluctant to stay somewhere that you needed to get a bus to the lift but Russ was great - he dropped us up everyday and picked us up whenever we wanted. We had a fantastic holiday - THANK YOU. I'm sure we will be visiting again. (sorry it has taken so long to write a review)
