Hard to beat this chalet and the set up- and we"ve been chalet holidaying for the last 18 years.. Very spacious, lovely bedrooms and sitting area. Food was fab, lift service to the slopes a godsend, and all loved the hot tub. Chalet hosts were great- and Chelsea's cakes were to die for. Discovered Brown Bear 4 years ago and...

Having never done a chalet before I was a bit apprehensive as to what to expect. It was a fantastic break ALL the staff were excellent. We were the guests from hell with lost luggage and a hospital visit during our stay Kelly and Adam could not have been any more helpful and really did go the extra mile !...

We could not recommend Brown Bear Lodge more highly. The lodge is beautiful and the accomodation very comfortable indeed with ample cosy seating around the log fire in the living room, excellent sauna and lovely outdoor hot tub. Meals prepared by Liam and Chelsea were excellent and substantial, and the transfers to and from the airport, and from chalet to...

For my first experience of a chalet ski trip, it couldn't have been better. Having previously stayed in hotels, my wife and I decide to go for the chalet option this year. The rooms were very spacious and our one had a bath in (which we paid a bit extra for to get). Having 14 adults guests proved to be...

After many months worrying that we weren't going to have any snow on our ski trip we spent a very long delayed day travelling to Geneva airport due to the amount of Snow the French Alps had received.

First impressions! Were that I was going to spend a week in a stunning chalet with excellent hosts. First impressions were not wrong. Liam and chelsea make an excellent pair and work hard for their guests. Nothing is too much trouble. Most of this happens in the back ground without you noticing the hard work that's under way. The food...

You cannot go past Brown Bear Lodge. Hosts Joe & Amelia, and cook Hazel were just brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble, from booking activities, to organising bikes, to catering for vegetarian meals, and giving advice and suggestions, these guys are at the top of their industry. The Lodge itself was beautiful, immaculate, and very well appointed. Food was amazing,...
