“A really homely, lovely chalet and excellent meals.”
Reviewed March 17, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Diane, Vic and Marie made us all so welcome. The chalet is in a very good location for the free shuttle bus, ski shops and town. It is a very warm and comfortable chalet, and Diane is an excellent chef and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hot tub is delightful and most welcome after a hard day's skiing.
The chalets location is also only a short walk from the airport transfer buses, so no problem there.
Highly recommend this accommodation, would definitely stay there again.

“Decent location, Great food and hospitality, Great Hot Tub!”
Reviewed February 17, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

First trip to a privately run chalet (normally go with Ski world, Total or similar). This was an excellent choice as being owner run makes for a much better experience for a similar price to a package deal we booked our own flights at a reasonable price and private transfers avoiding coach faff completely!. Being owner run, Dianne and Marie really looked after us well. The food was really good- a big step up from the food you normally get on a package chalet deal and included a good mix- a fantastic roast, a really good curry and some of the more french things like duck breasts etc. And HUGE portions! The fire was lit every night and a really nice warm place to relax in after the slopes. The Hot tub was also excellent and they provided robes. Rooms were basic but had everything needed and showers warm even when last one in. Decent ski and boot room- really warm boots in the morning was lovely! You can walk to the diable chair in about 10mins or there is a decent bus service to the beginner area in the centre of town which takes a similar amount of time. Highly recommend this chalet.

“Great Hospitality”

Great Chalet, great hosts, great food......could go on, but if you want a homely feel when away from home and good homely food, then this is the chalet for you when visiting the two alps....

“Fabulous chalet in perfect location - would highly recommend”
Reviewed February 5, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

By far the best chalet experience we've had - the rooms were large and comfy, the bathrooms (all ensuite) were clean and well looked after, the hot-tub was always a perfect temperature and the food was delicious & plentiful.
We've definitely had confirmation from this holiday that when staying in a private chalet such as Chalet Ruby there is so much more flexibility and care taken compared to one run by a travel company; in this instance Vic & Diane (and Marie) couldn't do more to ensure that all guests were happy at all times and full to bursting with delicious home made food.
Thank you again for a wonderful stay and being so accommodating to our large group of mixed ages, food tastes & general requirements.

“The perfect chalet experience”
Reviewed January 27, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Chalet Ruby is a lovely chalet situated in the liveliest part of what is a hidden paradise in the Alpes. Having skied all the big resorts in France with most tour operators, the warm, personal and welcoming approach taken by Di, Vic and Marie really made my holiday an experience to remember.
The resort itself has a large well maintained ski area with a good mix of runs and offers access to la grave, Europes biggest unpisted ski area. Having skied here in the past the new blue run back down to the resort makes the journey home to one of Les Deux Alpes many après bars all the most enjoyable with those tired afternoon legs.
Di offers a superb spread for both breakfast and supper with delicious food served and a constant supply of cookies and cakes. The rooms are clean and comfortable and climbing into your bath robe after a dip in the jacuzzi is an experience not to be missed!
Chalet Ruby is most definitely worth a visit if your familiar with Chalet style ski holidays and sets a very high standard to beat if it's your first time in the mountains.
