Our Guest Book!

A few words from our guests about their recent holidays with us in our luxury chalets and villas and the service they've received....a huge note of thanks has to go to our brilliant team...(click on link at bottom of page for previous seasons)

“Whilst I don't think I can give you credit for the beautiful weather last week, you do deserve credit for everything else.

 

The chalet is beautiful and the service impeccable. Each member of staff is willing, friendly and helpful. Their (and your) willingness to accommodate our religious requirements was fantastic and appreciated but everyone gave the impression that it was effortless. I have no doubt that lots of effort went into it.

 

Many, many thanks for a glorious week.”

 

J. K., London, UK - Chalet Dulcis Casu - March 2015

 

 

“We are thrilled to be here. It is a stunning chalet and the team looking after us is wonderful and could not be sweeter or more helpful and accommodating. 

 

…Would like to consider taking the same chalet next year…”

 

L. G. New York, USA - Chalet Bartavelles - Mar 2015

 

“Wow, what a fantastic holiday we all enjoyed. Thanks so much to Team Tomkins, who all made us feel so welcome ~ Brook worked effortlessly to provide all that we needed, and Greg......well what can I say? Wonderful food all week ~ his passion for cooking shone through in the deliciously varied dishes he presented each day.

 

White Storm supplied us with excellent equipment for the week so full marks there.

 

Lastly I have to mention Alex Radford our chauffeur, who was great company and delivered us safely to the chalet after a marathon 7hr transfer ~ it could well have been so much longer if he hadn't known the back-road route from Albertville to Moutiers, so huge thanks to him for that!

 

So all in all a fabulous week with Alp Leisure ~ great memories to cherish 'til our next time in beautiful Meribel xxx”

 

D.H. Oxon, UK – ChaletTomkins - Feb 2015

 

 

“First of all I would like to say THANK YOU for such a lovely holiday. 
As usual Alp Leisure was on a top.
I would like to mention that we had an exceptional gastronomic experience!
Marc is your best chef.
Chalet is really cosy and convenient.
First Class made their best.
And we would be happy to come back next year to one of your chalets.”

Y. S. Moscow, Russia - Chalet Loup Blanc - Feb 2015

 

 

“I just wanted to express my gratitude for a fantastic week skiing. We had an amazing time in Chalet Tomkins. It exceeded our expectations in every way.

 

The staff were also amazing; Brooke was incredibly friendly and helpful, and the food cooked by Greg was absolutely out of this world (and we're pretty picky!). David Armstrong was also invaluable at getting us to the chalet via the back roads, despite long delays on the motorway.

 

Thanks again and we're very much looking forward to staying with you again”

 

P. R. Hants, UK – Chalet Tomkins - Feb 2015

 

 

“The in-resort transfer service was amazing. The drivers were timely, friendly, accommodating. It made all the difference since they made our moves around Courchevel effortless…(the chalet was) Great, beautifully decorated, comfortable.

 

…Claire and Mark were fantastic. Always smiling, accommodating, available. Claire was very efficient in booking ski passes, transfers.  They are lovely people…the food was very good and Mark was very sweet in preparing some dishes for the baby twins.

 

Our Billing System (i.e. food at cost) - Great.

 

…we had a wonderful holiday and thank you for all the Alpleisure team did to make it so.”

 

A. L. London, UK - Chalet Le Loup Blanc- Jan 2015

 

 

“… thank you in person for the amazing holiday you provided to all of us!

 

We all agreed, that Alister contributed greatly to our enjoyment of the holiday! He has a perfect personality for this position. Polite, respectful, resourceful, very eager to please and be helpful whenever we had even a hint of any needs. He has a gift of relating to people which is both charming and reassuring, with a great smile and sense of humor. In a word, I would say 'aware.' Of the guests, his responsibility and of himself. Not to leave out, his cooking skills and the meals he prepared for us were superb! We will all miss him but with loads of fond memories.

 

… Thanks also to Becky for all of her very fine efforts coordinating our many trip details. From beginning to end, it was the most amazing ski holiday any of us has ever experienced!“

 

C.W. Texas, USA - Lodge du Ciel - March 2015

 

 

“Thank you very much, we do enjoy our stay in your new chalet.

I have to say that this is an amazing property and everything is so well thought of – perfect layout, beautiful design, lovely details…

So, we hope to have a very pleasant stay with Alpleisure again this year!”

 

A. F. Moscow, Russia – Chalet Duclis Casu- Jan 2015

 

“We do enjoy Bartavelles very much ! The chalet itself and its location are great. We are also very satisfied with the staff so far including the chauffeur Alex..

 

… we were fully satisfied with the chalet staff (very, very nice and professional) and really thankful to Mena who cooked very well and who perfectly took Étienne’s allergies into account.”

 

A. M. Paris, France - Chalet Bartavelles - Feb 2015

K. M. Moscow Russia – Chalet Bartavelles - Jan 2015

 

 

“We wanted to let you know that we had an amazing time in Meribel last week.  We were very happy that we chose Chalet Tomkins as it really is a fabulous place to stay.    

 

I would also like to say a big thank you to Brooke and Greg for doing such a great job looking after us.  Brooke is extremely good at her job and what can I say about Gregs cooking?!   We have stayed in many catered chalets over the last 20 years and I don't remember ever having such consistently excellent meals.  Always Imaginative, tasty and beautifully presented….

 

I also forgot to ask Greg if there is any way he would let me have a few recipes?!... 

 

Many thanks again for your help in arranging everything at such late notice and we are very much hoping that we will be able to visit on another of our .. trips.”

 

K. P. London UK – Chalet Tomkins - Jan 2015,

 

“… we were SO happy with each element (of the holiday).  Our entire stay was really super smooth, and I'm sure between being kosher and having 8 kids, we are not your typical clients.  Matt and Abby were amazing hosts and went way beyond what we expected to ensure that our stay was enjoyable.  They were truly amazing.  The chalet was perfect as well…

Thanks for a truly magical and memorable family vacation.”

 

Y. E. Tel Aviv, Isreal – Chalet Griottes - Jan 2014

 

 

“The Chalet is terrific, the team is wonderful this year, they are truly doing all they can to make our stay pleasant and they are super nice and accommodating.

Thanks for everything!”

D. M. Ramat-Gan, Isreal – Chalet Tomkins – Jan 2015

 

 

“We are having a great time at Bartavelles. Antonia, Mena, Laura and Emily are looking after us very well and we are loving being back…

 

We had a fantastic holiday at Bartavelles. I've spoken with the rest of my family since returning and we are all having withdrawal symptoms from Mena's cooking! …everyone had a really enjoyable holiday. Antonia and Mena were a class act and really looked after us and were so approachable. Mena coped really well with our kids’ fussy eating habits and nothing was too much trouble for her.

 

We thought it would be difficult to replace Brook as a nanny for the week as she was so good in the previous year, however Emily did manage to pass the test. Emily was an excellent nanny and really bonded with the kids. She was so enthusiastic and took the kids sledging and ice skating. Laura was also really welcoming and kept the chalet spotless for us and was a great help. Hopefully you can hold on to them all as they were real assets for the Chalet and helped make our holiday special…

 

…We'd love to book in next year”

 

M. J. Sydney Australia - Chalet Bartavelles - Jan 2015

 

 

“I want to thank you for the warm welcome and high level of service. We all really enjoyed staying at the Le Loup Blanc….Marc is a wonderful chef. Claire and Natalie also helped to make our holidays easy and unforgettable. 

 

Thank you all the team Alp Leisure!”

 

 E. B. Moscow, Russia - Chalet Loup Blanc - Jan 2015

 

 

“..Thanks for the gorgeous candle.   We are all having a wonderful holiday once again and are well looked after by your excellent staff.”

 

L. F. Cape Town, South Africa - Chalet Bartavelles – Jan 2015

 

 

“Great time 

 

Chalet staff excellent 

 

Would like same week again this year if poss“

 

T. R. Yorks. UK - Chalet Bartavelles - Dec 2014

 

 

“…What a divine teddy - how thoughtful! Arthur loves his Bartavelles bear….We had a fantastic X-mas despite the lack of snow and Flo was terrific - as were the rest of the team as always - so thanks all round.”

 

H, O & A London, UK – Chalet Bartavelles - Jan 2015

 

 

“A huge thank you to you and Chris for such a lovely evening at Bartevelles! The food was great and Antonia is really lovely, the best chalet host I met on my travels so please pass on the message. Shaun was also lovely, the whole team in fact and thank you for allowing me to visit all the chalets, they were beautiful.”

  

M. S. London, UK - Chalet Bartavelles - Dec 2014,

 

 

“…We're having a super time, thank you…Brook is lovely and can't do enough, as is Rochelle, and Santi is feeding us very well, whilst teaching us all snippets of Italian. 

We've just skied fresh snow and the girls and Richard are happy. Couldn't ask for more!”

 

R. D. London, UK - Chalet Dulcis Casu - Dec 2015

 

 

“…  As always we had a most wonderful time which even the dubious weather could not mar.  The staff you engage have invariably been excellent and this year was no different.  Antonia and Laura could not have been more attentive and Mena was both innovative and accommodating to our peculiarities.  Together they (and the rest of the team) once more made for us a truly memorable holiday.  Thank you and them very much indeed….

 

…Thank you once again and I look forward to spending more time at Chalet Bartavelles in the future”

 

T. S. London, UK – Chalet Bartavelles - Dec 2014

 

 

“…I can't believe we are already home - we wait so long for that holiday - it is definitely one of the highlights of our year.  As I mentioned to you when we met, my father took us skiing once if not twice a year (when we were young)- we never stayed in such luxury but we were perfectly happy.  He bought us up to be keen skiers - hence for me the combination you have at Alp Leisure is perfect. 

 

I get to ski all day.  I know my babies or kids are in excellent hands.  I know supper is dealt with, shopping and washing!  A log fire etc etc.  It is a real holiday for me in the true sense of the word and I believe we are creating real memories for our kids - just like I have of my childhood.

 

Your hard work and meticulousness shows every year in the excellent staff who manage to combine real professionalism with friendliness - we always feel at home but don't stand on ceremony.

 

As we mentioned, we would like to take a 2 week slot in January 2016…”

 

S.W. Jerusalem, Israel – Chalet Bartavelles- Dec 2014

 

 

“Some thoughts on our stay with you, bearing in mind that the oldest is 82 years old and the youngest 5 months (at that time).

 

It is a beautiful chalet, ...very easy to get to the skilifts.   The ski areas were superb and the children and our daughter-in-law and me and son-in-law, greatly enjoyed their lessons with progress being seen to be made. 

 

The younger members of the family had much fun in the hot tub, and the champagne which went with it.   I believe our grandsons have asked their parents whether they can have one at home   (The answer was no)….

 

Both Brook, our house mother, and Greg, chef extraordinaire, were clearly extra special, both in character and efficiency….We all enjoyed the chalet and location with taxi service when required….Meanwhile a big thank you to all concerned for making us so welcome.”

 

C. K. Nyon, Switzerland – Chalet Tomkins - March 2015

 

 

“Antonia and Mena at the chalet were the best “ great Time”

 

J. N. Cambs, UK – Chalet Bartavelles - March 2015

 

 

“…. we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chalet Tomkins. ….your staff last night did a fantastic job and we had one of the best New Year’s Eve buffets of all time and we had a great time with all our guests.  They really did work hard and produced a fantastic dinner.  

 

The chalet with its recent renovations is great and the bedrooms are very comfortable.

 

We would very much like to reserve the same week next year …”

 

R. B. London, UK – Chalet Tomkins - Dec 2014

 

 

“Is wonderful. We enjoy it very much. Really like coming home…”

 

Y. Z. Hants, UK, Chalet Folie Blanche - Dec-Jan 2014-5

 

 

“This is a huge thank you for the most amazing time I have just had with a great group of girls in Courchevel.  It was for me skiing as I have never experienced and I loved every minute.  

 

Being greeted at the airport, transported to the luxury of Dulcis Casu, looked after by Inga, Santi and Rochelle who seemed to be able to read our minds, skis carried whilst enjoying a vin chaud at the end of the day, gin and tonic in the hot tub, a massage to ease the muscles forgotten until skiing, steam and swimming pool, a bath so beautiful and relaxing I am sure it could fit four, home made cake for tea, food and wine and finally at the end of a day spent with gorgeous ladies - old friends and new - falling into a wonderfully comfortable bed to sleep the mountain air ready to brave the mountain again after a fantastic breakfast and the luxury of putting on warm ski boots and chauffeured to 1850 ...

 

Dulcis Casu was heavenly with angels looking after us. 

I really cannot thank everyone enough, I feel incredibly lucky and honoured to have been invited spending such a special, memorable time with a fabulous group of girls whilst being spoilt so beautifully.

 

Thank you beyond words.”

"Thanks to the amazing AlpLeisure team for a fantastic week in the party Villa Sambracia. 

 

The villa is amazing with in incredible views over the bay of St Tropez from the bar area. We felt that we had the best of both worlds being tucked away in the hills but just a short hop into town for the evening action. Our villa hosts, drivers and staff were all brilliant! 

 

The pool area is perfect and the courtyard was witness to a number of highly memorable party nights.  Great location, great service, great fun …. we’ll be back"

 

P.H. Surrey, UK - Villa Sambracia - May 2014

 

"Thank you to everyone for making our week at the gorgeous villa Sambracia so memorable . It is such a beautiful villa with space for everyone of all ages. We made plenty of use of the beautiful pool , table tennis, boules and badminton.  We all loved being totally spoilt by the amazing villa staff , discreet , thoughtful and an excellent chef - perfect!

 

Most evenings were spent watching the twinkling  lights of the boats in the bay while sipping a chilled rose up on the top terrace. The short hops into town (thanks to our chauffeur Daniel ) were easy and convenient though we all agreed coming back to the amazing villa was best of all ! A beautiful oasis .
Thank you Alp Leisure for another wonderful holiday"
