We have just arrived back after our 4th year staying in this chalet and we cant wait to return next year. The Hosts Ian and Jo are always welcoming and do all they can for you, they drop you off and collect you where is best for you and anytime that suits you, whether you want to be on the mountain bright and early or have a later start.
The chalet itself is beautiful, spotless and contemporary with the added bonus of a spacious hot tub!
The bedrooms are well presented, cleaned daily and with an extra touch of a chocolate left on the pillow for you... its the little touches such as this that makes this chalet the best. Having been to the area for over 10 years and staying in many chalets I can easily say this is the friendliest and best presented of them all.
Danielle and Rob provide freshly baed cakes daily for when you arrive back after a day on the slopes, cooked breakfast (even made me crepes as they were my fav!!) dinner is on another level, the presentation of the food is 5 star and all dishes taste amazing. Both very friendly and accommodating making sure your glass is always topped up. A lovely couple and easy to talk to which adds to the relaxing atmosphere of the chalet.
Overall this place really has got it spot on, we would highly recommend you to stay here. We always hate leaving and get excited throughout the year to be returning the following season. Can't fault the place and we always have the most relaxing holidays here.
Our flight was delayed and Ian the owner managed to keep our transfers alive as we were over 2 hours delayed, we eventually got the Chalet at midnight, to find a pie warming in the oven for our teenagers who were starving. We had a glass of wine and to bed.
Next day 8 am, ski fitting service were on the doorstep with our preordered gear- very efficient but quite expensive.
Rob and Danielle then served our breakfast, which as it turned out was hot breakfast every day and with a choice of eggs bacon sausage etc. Meals on the nighttime were 4 courses with canapés as well! The cooking is of a very high standard, with restaurant quality food and service , for instance the last night meal was mini croque madams and welsh rarebit canapés- then beef cheek and Abondance risotto ( which he had been cooking for three days), then stuffed pork with parsnip and apple puree and fondant potatoes and cabbage with a peppercorn sauce, a superb combination of taste and texture, followed by chocolate torte and ice cream, the cheese and biscuits !!! phew.
The chalet has 5 bedrooms , all large with ensuite- the showers are great and beds massive.
The lounge area has two main sitting areas with a separate tv/games room.
Ian finished the fit out of the chalet himself, and the attention to detail is very high
Ian ferried us around each day with drop off and pick up whenever we wanted.
This enabled us to start our skiing in various different points so that we could explore the portes du soleil. Locally there is a lot of skiing with Chatel, Pre le Joux, Petit Chatel, Panthiaz and Cret Beni all being different drop off and ski areas. We also managed to get to Les Lindarets, a great valley, Les Crosets, Morgins and Grand Paradis in Switzerland- loads to do, and good variety.
I think we paid a little bit more than our average Catered Chalet price, but we got this back in quality of accommodation, food and service.
Negatives- need cash at end of the week to pay for lift passes and equipment, and not walkable to any bars etc
Positives- not walkable to bars
Mini bus to ski areas
Owners and staff
Without a doubt, the best ski chalet we have ever stayed in. Ian & Joanne, our hosts, were very accommodating and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The real bonus was the restaurant quality food thanks to Rob & Danielle. We would definitely go back.
Ian and Joanne are the most friendly and welcoming hosts and nothing is too much trouble, The accommodation is fabulously luxurious and the location is quite simply stunning. Fantastic amenities on your doorstep, lovely bars and restaurants and walks/activities to suit all abilities. Imagine sitting on the veranda at the end of a busy day looking across the valley and the amazing vista sipping a glass of chilled local wine, fantastic!
I can guarantee that Alpine majestic will not disappoint and we will definitely be returning again in the future to enjoy Ian and Joanne's fantastic hospitality and their wonderful chalet. If this holiday does not far exceed your expectations I would be very surprised. See you soon lovely people.

A group of 9 of us visited Alpine Majestic in Jan. It blew our minds, everything about the trip was stunning. The food, the accommodation, the scenery & location. I actually fell sick for a few days and Ian & Joanne were so accommodating and considerate (they actually took me to the Drs). Ian & Joanne are superb hosts and cant do enough for you. Its one of the best holidays we have been on. Our group of friends (some of which are keen skiers and have been to many resorts) have never been somewhere so beautiful and accommodating. The food is excellent and so much of it, afternoon tea with homemade cake awaits on after skiing. The team go above and beyond to ensure you have a great time. We will be returning and strongly recommend.
