Comments From Our Guests

Here are just a few of examples of comments and emails we have received from guests last season (2015-2016); we think that they give you a flavour of the level – and consistency – of the service that we deliver:


December – Derrick H – The best chalet we've stayed in over many years of skiing. Great location too... What can I say - we had Paul as chef! Brilliant cook and a really nice guy to have around in an open plan kitchen...Seriously, great food. We have not stayed anywhere else where we have eaten so consistently well over a whole week. Paul also catered for the person requiring gluten free food in an exceptional way - more than we had hoped for.

January – Erika C – After 4 years of visiting the Chalet Zybeline, we never leave disappointed. The team, food, environment, hospitality and comforts will continue to draw us back. With the incredible skiing in the 3 Valleys, it is our family's favourite holiday. See you next year.

February – Nicola C – Loved the chalet, its ski in ski out position, contemporary design, all the well thought out comforts like heated boot room, plenty of space for us all, absolutely beautiful and perfect... Paul and Lauren are the dream team! We all love our food and are keen cooks but can honestly say I have never had food like that, so beautifully presented, delicious and exciting. Their passion and skill shone through in everything and I felt very spoilt and lucky to have experienced that level of expertise. It was amazing...I honestly don't think you can improve on what you have, your attention to detail and level of service is second to none. It is the best serviced chalet we have ever stayed in and just a massive thank you for such a great holiday.

February – Philip W – What a wonderful week. One of the few places I won't recommend, because I don't want to find Zybeline taken when I want to come back! Paul, Lauren, Fletch + team - WOW!

February – Gael M – I wanted to say how much we all enjoyed our stay last week at the chalet. Paul and Lauren were fantastic hosts, with Paul's cooking divine. The chalet was gorgeous...and location was great, so could you please pass our thanks on to Purple Ski and the owners.

March – Collen L – Magical Meribel. Thanks to the fantastic team at Zybeline headed by Paul & Lauren, they made this family holiday for us something so special, they touched our lives and enriched our experiences in such a way we will never ever forget them. The food and wines were amazing - Paul - you have to be the very best!! The lovely Lauren, Natasha, Fletch, the relief staff, the drivers. Thank you all.


January – Katharine L – We enjoyed it all so much and your staff are a real credit to you, every single one was more than helpful and went out of their way to ensure we all had the best week.

January – Jo D – Very impressed with the quality of the staff you employ.

February – Stefanie K– Fantastic service! Dane and Clare are charming, efficient and absolutely lovely to be around. Anything we asked for was arranged almost immediately.

February – Marcia and Alice– May we both just say how impressed we were with Purple ski - thank you and one day it would be lovely to book through you again - you made the whole holiday experience a joy.

February – Veigar and Sigridur– Simply put, we LOVED EVERYTHING! It was the trip of a lifetime for us and we will for sure be back...The food was great, and most importantly, the staff was extremely respectful and courteous.

March – Louis B – Wonderful service, great chalet, great skiing.


January – Yermolai S – This is our second time in Varappe, and we look forward to our third visit already. While the weather was the quintessential alpine medley, the delicious food and cosy feel lent our holiday a wonderful atmosphere.

February – Hjalti J – Top review for the staff. Attentive, caring, resourceful and committed.

February – Victoria J – Gorgeous chalet, superb staff and fantastic food. Thank you all so much - absolutely lovely time..

March – Michelle B – We were extremely well looked after. The chalet was a dream and Steve spoilt us with the most delicious breakfasts and meals. I would also like to say that the drivers did a brilliant job too driving us around which made life incredibly comfortable especially when carrying skis and ski boots...

March – Emma D – It couldn't have been better, the best snow, the best food, the best staff. All perfect. Thank you all so much.

April – Keith B – We had an excellent experience with your team throughout our holiday from the time we were collected by Tom at the airport. (Picnic went down very well). You have clearly worked very successfully on your recruitment process as the whole team were great. Alice could not have been more helpful, pleasant and efficient. Likewise Tom and Emma. The whole driver team were very efficient and did a great Job. Steve is an exceptional cook and could not have been more flexible and helpful. The whole team is a credit to your Company. Hopefully we will be with you again!

“If I had to pick one factor that really made the holiday enjoyable it would be the staff. I don’t know what your recruitment policy is but it works.”


December – Fiona L – As a family with friends staying in Chalet Foinsbois, we have laughed and had such an amazing week, spoilt by the team looking after us, Pablo's delicious cooking and incredible New Year's Eve gourmet dinner. Thank you all as our week was amazing.

February – Fernand P – Everything was just perfect. Louise is a marvellous chef and has a very good attitude... Gemma is also a very nice person and very efficient. Tom and Sigourney were also very kind and helpful... everything was outstanding. We will, highly probably, be back next year...Purple ski is definitely a vey good organisation.

February – Sophie L – It was as usual a wonderful stay. Delicious food and thank you so much to Gemma and Siggy for their kindness.

March – Aaron McN – Phenomenal food and service.

March – Adam N – We absolutely loved Foinsbois - chalet is great, Gemma Louise and team are wonderful, and all in all another fabulous trip to Meribel under the care of you, Karen and Purple Ski!

April – Robert L – The Purple Ski staff were superb and the service provided was excellent in all respects.


December – Lindsay D – I thought I should let you know how good your team at Lapin Blanc have been. Without exception they have been charming, attentive and totally on their game. If the mantra was 'what more can I do' they have comfortably met it.

January – Colin D – Beautiful chalet in a great position. Very comfortable and homely without being too pretentious...What a lovely team you have at Lapin Blanc! Grant, Josh, Jodie and Will all made us feel very much at home. There was nothing too much for them and although we may be a relatively easy going bunch, they were very professional at all times.

February – Alexandra H – We returned yesterday from our incredible week skiing in Meribel and I just can't get over how wonderful the Lapin Blanc team are. Grant, Josh, Jodie, and driver Will were an absolute joy to be with and nothing was ever too much trouble; they all have the most relaxed and happy dispositions and are an absolute credit to your company. The covering staff - Flavia, Will and Becks were equally as great. I have to mention also that Grant is a VERY talented chef and he produced that most exceptional suppers for both us and the children. We very much look forward to returning to Lapin Blanc next February half term.

February – Edward W – Such an amazing time! Fabulous staff, sublime food from Grant, tip-top chalet. HUGE thanks to all! We will be back...

March – Corporate group – Thank you Purple Ski team for a wonderful hospitality. We had an amazing time. Will definitely be back next year.

March – Nas A – THANK YOU for the amazing hospitality. You have all gone above and beyond!!! We've loved the experience you have given us. Thank you for everything you have done. We've had the best time.
