The team could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. From driving us down to the gondola and back each day to Kimberley's delicious menus designed around...

Great food, with vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes looking equally appetising. And a superb and friendly guide to lead us through the majestic scenery of the Alps, pacing us well . And very knowledgable about the wildlife and wildflowers, an added bonus....

A super chalet in a great location, just on the edge of the beautiful village of Samoens. We were welcomed warmly by the fabulous Nat and all her team; Gav, Connor and Lauren. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt thoroughly spoilt. There is so much to do apart from the skiing and boarding. Local snowshoeing was great fun...

The owner managed to fit us in for just a couple of nights in their chalet. Due to snow in Geneva - flights were delayed. So we didn't arrive until 11.30pm - Nat - manager of the chalet team gave us a warm welcome even at the late hour. Our rooms were warm and cosy. Gavin provided us with great...
