TESTIMONIALS

“Spent a little time in chalets over the years and this time around we decided to up the anti a little. Looked around at a few companies and Hunter Chalets were definitely up there with the best. In most cases, photographs of a chalet or apartment are taken in such a way to exaggerate the sizes - not so here. The top floor lounge was a great socialising space and easily big enough for our party of ten. The icing on the cake was the in resort driver service and, whilst an additional cost, made the whole holiday so much better with a true 24/7 service, managed by a great team of on-call drivers. All in all a five star experience with a couple of issues quickly resolved. Would definitely consider using Hunter Chalets again.”MEL WRIGHT

“Stayed in Chalet Genepi at the start of March for a week and it was stunning. Fabulous accommodation, comfortable beds, a relaxing hot tub and breathtaking views from both balconies. The White Company toiletries were an added bonus - beautiful. The staff could not have been more helpful with everything from baby seats to cots, a high chair and stair gate provided. Make sure to book the resort shuttle service with Hunter Chalets - the drivers were so helpful and professional. It was such a special week where we all left feeling rested and pampered. The only question now is, which chalet will we try next?”SARAH CRAIG

“We have stayed with Hunter Chalets twice now as a large group of adults. We found their service and attention to detail to be fantastic. The chalets we have stayed in have been amazing and Fin and his team have been on hand to help with every detail to make sure our trips were nothing short of perfect.”MATTHEW CASSELL

“From the first phone-call to when we reluctantly left Morzine, everything was seamless. I really cannot recommend Hunter Chalets highly enough. We stayed in Chalet 46 for a week with our family and had a fantastic holiday. The team at Hunter Chalets had thought of every last detail to ensure we had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday. If you are planning a ski holiday and looking for a luxury experience then look no further than Hunter Chalets.”CALUM GRAHAM

“My experience with Hunter Chalets has been nothing but first class. On both occasions the chalet was beautiful and absolutely spotless. Finlay and Wendy could not have been more gracious hosts, making sure our every need was catered for, from having our own personal chauffeur, breakfast being brought in fresh by the local bakery every morning and organising for us to go parasailing and night sledging. Would highly recommend for a wonderful holiday experience no matter the season. As an avid motorcyclist, I cannot recommend Hunter Chalets enough as a base for an alps tour. Our bikes were kept secure and safe every night and the drying room was god send when caught in rain!”SAM JOHNSTONE
