Fantastic summer holiday in the mountains!!! The chalet was luxurious and had a amazing view from the deck, hot tub an added delight. The hosts were always on hand to answer questions and help us plan our days adventures. Look forward to returning in Jan!
We returned to Chalet Aralia for the second time this year and once again had a 5* holiday from start to finish. Ruth and James are excellent and nothing was too much trouble for them. The chalet isn't ski in-out but that really doesn't matter as there seems to be an army of drivers who appear from nowhere when you need to be taken to or from the slopes. Our chalet hosts were lovely and looked after us all very well (including providing additional assistance during my convalescence from a broken bone!) Sam the Chef was incredible and I could see the effort he put into creating original and delicious meals every day. The wine was carefully thought out and always paired with the food, but there was plenty of variety so everyone could enjoy their own style of wine (some members maybe sampled more than others!)
The addition of the hot tub this year really did complete the chalet experience and we spent much time relaxing and looking across to the snowy mountains.
Thank you so much White Mountain Chalets for another incredible holiday. We will definitely be back again and I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a luxury skiing holiday.
Great access to the Three Valleys made better by the car service. Chalet is in a sunny spot just above St Martin, 5 min walk in. Lovely chalet as you can see from the photos with a hot tub on the balcony but what stood it apart was the quality of the food and service, I have been skiing for 30+ years from mid market to Scott Dunn and never had such high quality food. Sam produced amazing dishes each night and he and Katy were great hosts always looking to do whatever they could to make sure everything was spot on. Thoroughly recommend.
I have been meaning to write a review for ages as we had such a wonderful stay at Chalet Aphylla (sister chalet to Aralia) February 2016 half term; Ruth and James and the team were fantastic - we booked very last minute (as is often the case for us due to my husband's work schedule!) but Ruth was brilliant throughout the booking process.
Chalet Aphylla was self-catered so we took lots of provisions with us and then got the rest form the supermarket in town. We had daily bread and croissant deliveries which were fantastic for breakfast and to make snacks for hungry teenagers (and adults) while skiing!
The chalet itself is absolutely stunning - the décor is very stylish and the rooms and bathrooms beautifully done - comfy beds, everything we needed in the kitchen (although we did take our own Nespresso machine!).
The chauffeured trips to and from the slopes were great, saved a lot of phaffing around with parking at the slopes - this is another example of the added luxury you get at Chalet Aphylla, in most self-catered places we have stayed you don't get this service.
With vegetarians and fussy eaters to cater for, it really suits us better to be able to do our own meals but we like the service aspects of the catered experience - this chalet was the perfect balance of the two, we couldn't have wanted more from our ski trip to the Three Valleys - thank you so much White Mountain Chalets!
I want to write pages of how absolutely incredible our holiday was however i have two small children (3 and 5) who keep me on my toes and i don't have much time. However i do have enough time to say that our holiday to Saint Martin de Belleville, staying at Chalet Aralia was the best holiday we have ever had! Ruth and James and their whole team made us feel so so welcome and special every single need was catered for we felt like royalty! Everyone was so charming and kind. The food was delicious! Our kids had meals just for them and then we would eat later just my husband and I - it was so lovely - we suddenly had time to chat and relax!!! We had transfers anywhere we liked at a moments notice, organised ski lessons for both us and the kids which were great, restaurants booked. Trips to the swimming pool and sledging. The chalet is finished to such a high standard and done with such care. The beds are so comfy and it was fantastic to come back to a sauna after a days skiing. We couldn't have asked for more! Thank you for everything! We will see you next year!
