We were initially very dubious booking this chalet due to previous reviews and comments. But how wrong we were! Fantastic Chalet, Perfect Location, Incredible Food and topped off with great company. We can't thank Charlie enough for making it the week it was. Absolute pleasure to be around and a huge asset to Crystal, it annoyed us how easy he...

We booked our holiday through Crystal Ski and stayed at the Chalet Balias in Val D Isère. The Chalet is located just off the main rd going through the village and about 5 mins walk from the Olympic & Solais lifts that take you up the mountain. The Chalet is on the top floor of a total of 3 chalets,...

Perfect chalet experience. Our host Charlie cooked phenomenal food and all the other guests were brilliant company. Snow and slopes made for a great skiing experience. Rooms were spacious and the communal area was too. Slightly slow wifi but if that's what you look for in a ski holiday, try Rome. 9/10 would recommend.

Despite booking and paying for a holiday in Chalet Balias 6 months early, Crystal called to say the Chalet was infested with bed bugs, so would not be available (3 days prior to departure). They did not have another property available in Val D'sere. We paid a total £15,500 for the holiday (including flights) for Christmas 2016. Crystal offered a...

If this chalet is an example of Crystal's Finest, than I would be very reluctant to try any other kind of accommodation that they offer. As soon as we entered our room, we realised that we could quite clearly hear the noises coming from downstairs. Eave Room 6 is directly above the kitchen, dining room and lounge. This meant that...

If you’re thinking of booking Chalet Balias this coming season it’s worth highlighting some key points! We had read about the very small rooms (they are) and the advice to choose an attic room (note, extra cost) – which we did. We even made contact with the sales team (Crystal Ski – Chill Factore) months in advance to ask for...

We stayed here at Christmas. The chalet is well located close to ski lifts and the town. The chalet host Josh was very friendly, cooked great food and looked after us well. Our room was one of the smaller rooms but plenty big enough for us and large by French standards. We did use the sauna once and would have...

So I thought we were staying in an up market chalet as it was a 'CrystalsFinest' well I do have to take you to task Crystal Ski, the furnishings were worn out, our over bath shower was a hand held version so impossible to wash hair without wetting the floor, and the room tiny. The staff were great but boxing...

Excellent chalet and I agree with all said in the previous reviews. The only thing I would add is that the attic rooms are so much better and bigger than the others, although they all, despite their size, are quirky and attractive. The building houses 3 chalets and the Balias is at the top so after a heavy days skiing...

This was our first visit to Val D'Isere and our first experience of a catered chalet and it turned out to be excellent. The location is in the centre of the resort within a few metres of the bus station. This chalet is on the third/fourth floor of of a single structure. Our room was small but with adequate cupboard...
