Guest Reviews

Let me start by simply saying thank you to Lesley and Pete for the excellent service, and to you all for a magnificent chalet. Our shortski-trip of last week is a yearly tradition with 10 friends, with this being our 6th edition, and we all agreed this was by far the best trip we did. Chalet in perfect condition, Lesley and Pete as perfect hosts, great food in the evening, lovely breakfast in the morning, and any help you need throughout the day. Lesley and Pete all make it look normal & natural, big compliment for that.
The chalet is brilliant in itself, Lesley and Pete made it a home away from home for us all.
Thanks for a great stay!”

We had an amazing time at Chalet Arolla. It exceeded all our expectations. The accommodation was first class, exceptionally clean and beautifully furnished throughout. Pete and Lesley were wonderful hosts. They put us all at our ease from day 1 and the chalet felt like home for the week. Lesley was very attentive and Pete’s cooking was delicious. The kids wanted to bring him home with us! Nothing was too much trouble. The provision of the hot tub and steam room were greatly appreciated at the end of a day’s skiing. The only negative was that we couldn’t ski in and ski out due to conditions but Lesley and Pete were happy to drive us down to the Chaudanne every morning. We would certainly consider booking this chalet again “

“We had a fantastic holiday at your Chalet; Pete and Lesley were wonderful hosts – definitely the best food we’ve ever had at a catered chalet.  They were delightful and nothing was too much trouble.  The chalet is very well situated,although even more so if there had been more snow, although there’s not much you can do about that!   loved the boot fitting service at the chalet rather than having to brave the shop & same with the lift pass.   All in all a fantastic holiday and your chalet is beautifully decorated – it has a lovely homely feeling.  We will definitely be back!”

“Chalet Arolla is a magical place in a beautiful setting.  In the evening one is welcomed into a warm, stylish and comfortable sitting room to enjoy drinks at the bar or lounging on the sofas.  A delicious dinner is then served at the candlelit dining table.  Lots of fun and laughter.  Waking in the morning to a view of the mountains after a wonderful nights sleep and then a great shower.  Breakfast, served by friendly staff, is another treat, enjoying the views, drinking coffee, planning the day ahead.”

“Stayed with a family group in March 2015. Absolutely brilliant. All bedrooms beautifully decorated and comfortable.  Ours had a bath ensuite, others had showers. Fabulous living area.  Each evening cocktails at the bar then sitting chatting and relaxing at the dining table eating delicious meals. Afterwards sinking into soft couches around the log fire.   Great location to get kitted out and ski to the slopes and back again. After a hard day the outside hot tub is a great experience to ease the aches and pains. Overall, perfect in every way.”

“Chalet Arolla is a large, luxurious and secluded chalet.  Regal dining facilities but with an intimate cosy area to enjoy post ski tea and glorious views.  There was plenty of room to hold a large birthday party, making use of the extensive terrace.  We skied from the chalet onto the piste, via neighbours gardens, and returned in the same manner when the side roads were covered.  In any event the ski bus runs nearby and the nearest pub is just a stones throw.”

“We stayed in Chalet Arolla in January 2015. I loved the huge dining/sitting room which, with the large, soft sofas and log fire, was so cosy, the beds were comfortable, the bedrooms silent and the bathrooms flawless. I made use of the steam room (but not of the outside Jacuzzi) every evening to sooth my aching muscles. Peter’s cooking was delicious and the service by Leslie sublime. I also really enjoyed the ability to ski in and out without having to go near a bus or car. In short, everything was perfect.”

“Truly splendid- a luxury place to stay coupled with the cosyness of a home. Exquisite taste and real duvets and even a sauna to relieve tired legs after a brilliant day skiing. Right on the slopes so no need to get the lift. Highly recommended. Six stars!”

Chalet Arolla made for a wonderful week in Meribel; perfectly refurbished to the highest and most contemporary finish, it was wonderful to stay at such a well looked after chalet! complimented with beautiful linens, fluffy towels and most hospitable staff. Visiting with friends Chalet Arolla was perfectly positioned with close proximity to ‘Ronnies’ and benefitted massively from having the ski in/ ski out facilities. The food and drink was enjoyed by all at the large dining table, plus the well stocked bar made for wonderful memories with friends. After a day skiing, the jacuzzin and spa was a welcome treat! we can’t wait to see you next year.
