10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Excellent 'home from home' skier's chalet
"The Ski Breezy experience is brilliant. I have visited this chalet both travelling alone and with friends and there is always a warm welcome. The food is delicious, plentiful and nutritious. The hosts- Breezy and Al- make you more than welcome and are a hive of knowledge about the local ski areas."

Another great week!
"This is the fourth time I've been to Breezy's in three seasons! I can assure you, I'm a fussy bugger when it comes to holidays, especially ski holidays. I should know, I've been on one or two over the last twenty years or so. The chalet is well made, very clean and there's plenty of hot water. It's also in a good location, only a couple of minutes walk from the local halt (Les Moussoux) and only slightly further to the ski bus stop. Good Apres Ski is only a short walk (The Jekyll). What makes this place so special are the hosts, Breezy and Al. What they don't know about the Chamonix Valley isn't worth knowing. If you have any questions, they have the answers. Nothing is too much trouble. For example, arranging for Pierre to deliver, fit and collect your hire skis at the chalet. Oh, and I almost forgot the food. The food! Always freshly made, beautifully cooked and very generous servings. My advice, Ski Breezy offers fantastic value for money. This is Chamonix's best kept secret. Give it a go. I did. You won't regret it."

You should try this one...
"I do 4 or 5 weeks a year in the Alps and this chalet continues to represent excellent value for money and the hosts are great. If you can keep up with them, you get to ski with them too! Breezy is part of the local scene and so knows the mountains and has excellent contacts. This is skiing/boarding as it should be - like a local."

My best ever Ski trip ... and I have done a few!
"To start the day with a hot breakfast and great company - let alone the amazing view of the Alps - To then get local knowledge of the area and suggestions from the Ski Breezy crew ... !!! To return to the Chalet after a full day sking for some amazing home made cake - Then the stunning 3 course meal !!! -- I have stayed many times at this location and to meet so many like minded people over the years .. I cannot recommend this Chalet enough :-)"

Exceptional Value & Hospitality - Call It a Bed & Breakfast +++
"Breezy makes you feel welcome even before you arrive not only giving practical advice before your stay but also arranging for ski and snowboard lessons. While there, Breezy provides Breakfast, Apres Ski Cake & Tea, and Home Cooked Dinners (Dinner is 6 of 7 Nights). On Breezy's night off, its a great chance to walk into Chamonix to try one of the many great restaurants in town. The Chalet is extremely well-kept and offers plenty of parking. Works great for families, you can play one of Breezy's board games or take advanatage of the free wireless internet to stay caught up with emails or facebook."

Home away from Home!
"The comfort and service is great with this catered chalet. The hosts make you feel at home and cover every detail of food and drinks, as well as organizing needed services in Chamonix. Big enough for two families and located near the town and with all the ski resorts within 20 minutes. An excellent stay for all ages, with delicious dinners and tea service as well."

Fantastic first trip skiing
"This was our first ski trip as a family with aunts, uncles and cousins included , for some of us the first time skiing. We had lots of help getting ski lessons , which were invaluable and great fun ( no falling out with spouses) and ski hire which was very resonable. There is a great choice of ski runs all really near between 5 - 30 mins. Also ski runs for all abilities novice to those who wish to go off piste. Our accomodation was warm, clean and with a very friendly atmosphere. Very welcoming to have a delicious cake and hot drink waiting for you after a day on the piste. We also enjoyed our evening meals which were always delicious and plenty to go round as well as a generous supply of wine. We had a couple of not so nice days when it rained but there is bowling, mini golf or Spas close by to fill in those days. Highly recommend this holiday regardless of your ability."

"Had a fantastic time with three friends we were very well looked after by Breezy and Al and the food was absolutley ideal. The chelet has fantastic views of Mont Blanc and the surrounding peaks and is a short walk from Chamonix centre. Would recommend a car as travelling to the different ski areas takes up valuable skiiing time but had a fantastic time and some of our group have already rebooked for next season."

great week in chamonix chalet with breezy
"4 working professionals stayed for a week over easter with breezy in this catered chalet. the chalet is a really nice place. good facilities good size. 2 double rooms 1 twin room and a quad room. each room has its own bathroom / shower room. the lounge / kitchen / dining room has great views up to mont blanc across a good sized garden. its always good having a nice chalet but what really makes this place is teh quality of the food and the manner it is given to you. breezy's food is top drawer and both her and al were great hosts. no pressure and happy to be flexible. the true spirit of the alps. i will be going back."

A wonderful ski holiday with Breezy!
"The chalet is a beautiful modern stone and wood home and in a wonderful location, only 5-10 minute walk from Chamonix city centre. Breezy is a fabulously laid back, funny, and fun hostess. The food she prepared for breakfast, afternoon tea and cake, and evening dinner was all delicious and plenty. She gave great advice on where to dine out on her night off, where to ski based on weather conditions, and many other great tips, as she is a long time resident in the know! She can help arrange tours and lessons, reservations, and transportation. I would highly recommend a chalet experience with Breezy."
