Testimonial 3

The opportunity to come out in April for a sneaky holiday for just my husband and myself was too good to miss. We are long standing devotees of all that Jerry and Bettina provide at Chalet Bartavelle and would recommend it to anyone (and often do!). Jerry has been telling us for years how good the skiing is in April but we’ve never had the courage, or time, to do it before now.
Maybe we were just lucky but we had the most fantastic week of skiing with blue skies every day and great snow. Admittedly you do have to stay quite high but this was not a problem. We chose southerly slopes in the morning and then northerly ones in the afternoon which meant that the snow was always in the best conditions. Having thought that we’d go to Val Thorens most days it turned out to be busy and not pleasant so we stuck to Meribel and mostly Courchevel where we had great fun and skiied from 9.15am to about 5pm every day.
Coming back to the delights of Chalet Bartavelle and the joys of Jerry’s cooking every day made it the perfect holiday (you can’t help but have them here). We’re so glad to have finally taken Jerry’s advice and are thinking about April 2015 and whether we can persuade the grandparents to have the children again!
