Comments from our guests:

We are a ski club and winter holiday abroad every year. The Chalet Le Reve was just perfect for our needs. Its a wonderful homely chalet and so comfortable with a spacious lounge, great long dinning table and a wonderful log fire to sit around at night to discuss our days skiing. The facilities were great with 6 bedrooms and bathrooms situated over 3 floors, so plenty of room for our group to find personal space. We cooked in every night and the kitchen was well stocked enabling us to provide some scrummy meals.
The regular bus service to Chatel stops near the chalet and its only a short drive to the lifts, so no car needed. Large supermarket 5 mins walk away great for self catering.
We are all experienced skiers and loved the challenge of the Port de Soliel ski area. We especially loved skiing Chatel and the wilder scenery and stunning views of Champousson and Champery..
Last but not least I must say a big big thank you to Lawrence. He was the perfect host, nothing was too much trouble. He was always willing to answer any questions and give advice. We loved his home and hope to return there soon.
Sue from Hampshire - April 2012
Excellent bedrooms on different levels to give privacy to different family members, wonderful log fire as the centre point of the chalet. All room good sizes but never lost its intimate feel. Excellent bus service, regular and great fun. Great village particularly the evening. Lots of varied slopes to die for. Lawrence couldn't have been more helpful. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
Simon from Brighton - March 2012
All of the family were of the same opinion that it is a wonderful place to stay, finished to a high standard, in what we consider to be our favourite ski destination.
The chalet was perfect for our party of 12, in allowing the families some of their own space if required, whilst retaining the togetherness of the communal lounge/dining area.
The kids especially loved the ground floor area and spent many evenings chilling out down stairs.
We cooked in every night and found the kitchens very well provided with enough pots, pans, cutlery etc.
The beds were very comfortable, with really nice quality sheets, quilts and pillows.
The towels provided were soft and fluffy and there was plenty of hot water at all times
We liked the décor/family feel of the chalet and felt welcomed into someone's house rather than simply renting a chalet.
Lawrence couldn't have been more helpful in the lead up to our holiday.
The ski area is excellent and taking everything into account rates as our favourite destination to date. It has everything for all the family.
Brown family from Buxton - March 2012
Chalet Le Reve is just the most wonderful escape! Located just a short drive from the fantastic slopes of Chatel, the chalet offers everything you would hope for either on a summer or ski holiday. The open fire in the lounge is just lovely and there is plenty of space, offering flexibility for different size and age groups. Little touches around the chalet give the feeling of a home away from home; in fact it's so warm and inviting, it can be quite hard to tear yourself away from it during the day.
The one point I would make, is that whist it is possible to get a local bus into the village and ski lifts, on both occasions that we have stayed there, we have hired a car and I would absolutely recommend this for anyone considering the chalet for their trip.
The chalet owner; Lawrence, can only be described as the perfect host. Nothing is too much trouble for him and he always goes over and beyond the call of duty to make certain yor holiday is nothing but perfect. From directions and assistance in booking your holiday, to guiding you back to the airport; step by step for your return home, his attention to detail is first class! Can't wait to go back in 2013!
Tracy from Devon - March 2012
We stayed at Chalet La Reve as part of a group of three families with 5 children ranging from 7 - 10 years old. The layout of the chalet really lent itself to this type of group as it had two living rooms - one in the basement level where a large flat screen television was located and one on the ground floor where a real log fire and dining room was located. This meant that at the end of a day's skiing, the children could relax downstairs in front of a dvd, of which there was a large selection available, while us parents could sit and relax with a vin chaud in front of the fire. There was also plenty of bathrooms with one for each bedroom on the top floor and the dining and ground floor living area could easily have accommodated another family. The location of the chalet was also very convenient as it was very near to a large supermarket and only about 5 mins drive from Chatel village where there was an abundance of restaurants for every different budget. For ski schools, we booked Pre La Joux which was about 10-15 mins drive away and was great for learning and also for the more advanced skier as linked up to the areas of Avoriaz, Morzine as well as numerous Swiss resorts. However, there was also a school located at Super Chatel which was about 5 mins drive away and had lots of beautiful blue and red runs. The chalet owner, Lawrence, was extremely helpful in all regards and made sure that all our queries were answered in detail. I would definitely recommend this chalet to anyone looking for a ski holiday in a beautiful family friendly location with access to one of the largest and most varied ski areas in the region.
Heimann family from London - February 2012
This large but cosy chalet was perfect for families with kids who can have their own floor complete with own lounge area and TV. Sitting round the roaring fire was a perfect way to end a great day's skiing in the huge Porte du Soleil area with its abundance of wide slopes and easy skiing access to other resorts and to Switzerland. All levels of skiing catered for within this area.
The chalet was close to the pretty town of Chatel, very close to other amenities e.g. supermarket and accessible to Geneva, about 1and a half hours away.
There is plenty of useful information from the owner who provided an excellent service.
Briggs family from London - February 2012
We had a fantastic week at your super chalet. We really enjoyed our skiing and conditions were perfect, snow, sun and no queues at lifts, excellent!!! Location of the chalet was ideal being right on the bus route, so no need for us to get the car out. It was lovely to return to a burning log fire after a hard days skiing! There was plenty of comfortable seating to accommodate all of our large party of 12, so no fights over the sofas, always a bonus. It was very reassuring to receive your telephone calls enquiring if everything was to our satisfaction, communication was excellent. We have already been singing the praises of your beautiful chalet to our friends and hope to return ourselves in the future.
Jane & Julie and the Fenner Party - January 2012
Thank you so much Lawrence for all your help in ensuring that our holiday in Chatel was so enjoyable. Chalet Le Reve is a lovely comfortable chalet which has a very homely and cared-for feeling. The location could not be better especially for self-catering as the supermarket is a 5-minute walk away or you can take the bus (one stop) which passes close to the chalet every 15 minutes. We booked ski hire near to the lift and were able to leave our boots etc there every evening. No walking in ski boots. Heaven! On the last evening we booked the restaurant you recommended and they arranged free pick-up and return for us.The weather and snow was perfect. We had only booked a Chatel Ski pass and even the advanced skiers found enough skiing to satisfy them. We will certainly return to Chatel and highly recommend Chalet Le Reve.
Preston family and friends - 7th to 14th January 2012
We had a fabulous time in your chalet and appreciated having such a nice place to spend our holiday in. Thank you very much for all your efforts in making it a memorable experience for us. Thanks for everything you've done.
Isabell from Geneva - New Year 2012
Thank you for a great holiday and a perfect start! You arranged for lift passes and ski hire at the chalet to get us on the slopes the next day. We got the fire going in the living room, and relaxed whilst at the same time being fitted with skis and boots.

We were all very comfortable in the Chalet, sitting round the wonderful log fire, dining in the chalet or just taking a well earned rest in bed. With the 6 bathrooms/shower rooms each room we all had access to our own bathrooms - it was great!
Nicola, Twickenham - 2011
Everybody in our group really enjoyed your chalet - it was perfect for us. Hopefully we will be back to Chatel soon.

Thanks very much for your hospitality and taking care of each of us. We had a great time and we're beginning to miss waking up early in the morning for skiing. We hope to come back to Chatel soon.
Angela, London - 2011
Wow where do I start! Tracey promised so much after her trip at Xmas so I had high expectations of both the Chalet and Chatel. Wow what I can I say - this has been the best week ever... Just sitting by the fire writing this dreaming and planning our next visit. It can't be soon enough!
Simon from Devon - March 2010
Thank you very much for letting us stay in your beautiful chalet. We have had just the most wonderful week. We did fall in love with Chatel and we can't wait to come back.
Tracey from Devon - January 2010
Thank you so much for a wonderful few days at your magical 'Shangri-La'*. You made us so welcome and your hospitality was second to none. Our day in Yvoire was very special.
Sue and Mike from Manchester - August 2009
* Shangri-La is a fictional place which has become synonymous with an earthly paradise and a permanently happy land isolated from the outside world.
James (yet again!). Three and a half days of the most magnificent skiing. Keep Le Portes du Soleil a secret until I've bought my place.
James from London W1 - March 2009
Thank you for a wonderful winter wonderland at Chatel. Everything has been perfect. The chalet is so fantastic: five girls chilling downstairs - ultimate bliss for tired parents. It has been truly wonderful.
