"The chalet, location and service we received exceeded our expectations!"
The chalet owner was extremely helpful - before we travelled to Avoriaz I had a number of questions related to the chalet layout, airport transfers, ski-hire, lift-passes, restaurants, etc ... you can… More

"Super location and beautifully appointed chalet"
This chalet is expensive but worth every penny. We stayed with one other family and as the accommodation is spaced over three floors it was possible to have privacy even with 10 folk in the house. The sauna and hot tub were a welcome relief to sore limbs at the end of the day. Nikki was fantastic at sorting restaurants/ski hire/food on arrival indeed she was available for any request. La Falaise, where the chalet is situated is a perfect location for restaurants and ski school. All appliances are Bosch and there is an American fridge freezer with ice and water, perfect. Be warned the total cost does not include the clean at 150 euros. We don't manage our holiday lets in the UK like this and it is a bit of a shock to pay such a large amount of money for the chalet and then pay for the clean separately. You do get a mid week clean for this and end clean which is great but still expensive.
Overall an excellent property.
Thank you for your kind comments regarding Chalet Ardoisiere and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We honestly would prefer not to charge separately for the cleaning but there are VAT implications in including the charge in the rent. Chalets Marketing Limited is a UK company and it is the owners who look after the properties and arrange the cleaning in France. We do hope to welcome you back to Avoriaz Chalets.

"Glorious Chalet in a wonderful resort"
I can't praise our stay highly enough. Whilst this is a fabulous ski resort our stay at the chalet was exceptional. From all the help when booking, arranging our transfer from the airport, being … More
We are so grateful for your very kind review. With just six properties to let in Avoriaz we hope to have the time to give a personal service to our guests. Chalet Ardoisiere has undergone a 100,000 Euros renovation in the last two years and it is being very well received by our guests. We very much hope to welcome you back to Avoriaz Chalets.

"The ONLY place to stay in Avoriaz"
Our second stay at what can only be described at the exceptional Chalet Ardoisière; exceptional location, exceptional facilities. Where else in the Alps can you ski in and ski out, then sit in your … More
Wow - what a lovely review - we are delighted by your comments, thank you so much. To our knowledge, Ardoisiere is the only chalet in Avoriaz with both a private outside hot tub and a private indoor sauna. We were hoping to make it special to enhance the holiday experience. We, too, hope that we may have the pleasure of seeing you return.

Thank you for your lovely review and we were so pleased that you enjoyed Chalet Ardoisiere. We hope you will carry on visiting Avoriaz (the new Express lift from Prodain is now open, whisking you up in just 4 minutes) and that you will choose Avoriaz Chalets again.

"Fabulous Chalet, Location and Service"
Just returned from a spectacular week in the most wonderful Chalet in Avoriaz France. Our 5th time in the same resort and we have found our home from home. The Chalet has recently under gone a stunning reservation, downstairs toilet to be completed, but truly amazing for families or couples. Stick at 8 people because the lounge is much better than the pictures let you believe and you won't want to share it with sleeping bodies. The very attentive service from the young resort team really topped this holiday off. Highlights, hot tub, beds, quality linen and towels, Spider-Man in 3D on the TV, true ski in ski out. Been elsewhere, done it, 360 days until I return to my new home. Cannot stress how great the Chalet and staff are; done
We are delighted that you, as such regular visitors, have found the improvements to the chalet to be a success. Having both a hot tub and sauna does seem to be a popular move and we very much hope to welcome you back to Avoriaz.

"Fantastic holiday, thoroughly recommended."
I have stayed at Chalet Ardoisiere with Avoriaz Chalets for the past 6 years and this year I had the best ski holiday ever. The chalet has been completely refurbished and upgraded to an extremely high standard and now has its own private outdoor hot tub with fantastic views and indoor sauna. The kitchen has every appliance you could think of – including an American fridge/freezer with constant ice and hot water; oven; microwave; warming drawer and dishwasher. The TV is now 3D complete with surround sound and the chalet has its own private high speed broadband. The owners and their agents were extremely helpful and as usual nothing was too much trouble. Can't wait for next winter.
You are truly valued guests who have been visiting for many years and it is most kind of you to take the trouble to submit a new review. We are very pleased with how Chalet Ardoisiere has turned out and I know you are too. We look forward very much to hosting you again next year - best wishes for the summer.

"Wonderful chalet in great resort"
We recently returned from our skiing holiday at Chalet Ardoisiere in Avoriaz. We had the most fantastic week made all the more enjoyable by the luxurious standard of the chalet. We knew that the chalet had an outside hot tub (which is truly wonderful) but we were also delighted to find a private sauna, a walk in rainforest shower and brand new kitchen, all of which have been recently added. The chalet is truly ski in – ski out to the huge ski area, is a very easy walk to the town centre and is only some 200 metres to the new Aquariaz water dome. The owners were on hand and dealt with a small electrical fault quickly and efficiently. Altogether, an excellent experience and many thanks to Avoriaz Chalets.
Thank you for your very kind words and we are delighted you found the refurbished chalet a success (we had a few minor problems sorting out the electrics but tht seems to have settled down now). We enjoyed your visit and hope to see you back in Avoriaz.

"Amazing chalet, newly refurbished but with teething problems."
This is a bit of a mixed review. This chalet has just been refurbished to a luxury standard, and we were the first group to stay since the work (I believe). As such, we expected, and were quite willin… More

"Is this now the best 4 bedroom chalet in Avoriaz?"
We have stayed at Chalet Ardoisiere with Avoriaz Chalets before (2010) and found it to be perfect for a family holiday. Now, Nikki has carried out a full refurbishment including the addition of a wonderful, private hot tub with amazing views. Finishing off the day's skiing by soaking in a private tub whilst looking over the Morzine valley in total privacy is a sublime experience.
The chalet is comfortable, beautifully decorated and very well equipped. You take your boots off the heated boot rack, take your skis from the private locker and step straight on to the town piste. For us, it is the perfect ski holiday and the chalet may now be the best 4 bedroom chalet in the resort.
Thank you for your kind words. We are continuing to develop the chalet and are adding a wellness centre with sauna, walk-in shower and new bathrooms. We very much hope to welcome you back soon.
