  • As a party of 11 (6 adults, 5 children from 3-6!!) we could not have asked for a better week. We quickly settled into the most relaxing routines ever – mainly thanks to the fantastic food & hosting. The chalet is immaculately clean, well furnished and comfortable. The presence of the hot tub added an extra dimension to our holiday. The layout of the rooms gave us great flexibility for both the adults and the kids. The menu each day was simply delicious and any food allergies and preferences were not only effortlessly catered for but more importantly, remembered. Our hosts adjusted meal times to fit in with us and the childrenThanks to our hosts, and Andy and Liz for all their hard work to make Chalet Orion, truly awesome!
