Thanks for everything!!!

Cam, Forestiere, Dec ’16

Words cannot express your warmth, friendliness, efficiency, cooking, tolerance and overall hospitality towards us.

We have been blessed by

  1. Having the chalet to ourselves, and
  2. The girls having you to themselves, you have been a delight and made them feel very special, and that nothing has been an inconvenience.
  3. The cooking has been Michelin 4 star standard in plentiful quantities, and beautifully presented. To be waited on like this has made us feel like royalty, and given us a chance to mentally relax physical relaxation is out of the question when you go skiing!)

We hope your time here is rewarding, and your own futures are bright, happy and all you want them to be.

Geoff, Lisa, Bethany & Sophia, Elise, Jan '17

Rosie and Lucy, thank you so much for looking after us for the past week! You’ve been amazing hosts, your hospitality is greatly admired and appreciated! Best catered chalet we’ve stayed in!

Peter, Debbie, Ella & Luke, Forestiere, Mar ’17

We have had an absolutely wonderful time. Rosie and Lucy have been amazing hosts and we have nothing but the highest praise for them - thank you so much for all of your effort and attention to detail - Fantastic! You are superstars! The chalet was kept immaculate and the food was consistently exceptional, but what really made our stay special was their hospitality. With a cheery disposition, they both went out of their way to accommodate our every need and did so in a relaxed, friendly and totally professional manner. They work extremely hard and must be very tired with finishing work at 9.30-10pm at night, starting again at 7 and, naturally, finding some time to play in between. But whilst they did admit to some tiredness, their work was not affected. Well recruited and well trained! We haven't done a catered chalet before, but did hear some less than glowing reports from the other guests about their previous non Pure Mountain) holidays, and so we don't take for granted the high standard of holiday we received. Now the bar has been set so high, it will be hard to go anywhere else!

Michael, Sarah, Ania & Emilia, Forestiere, Mar ’17

Thanks so much to our great hosts, Asher and Andrew, for making us so welcome, showing us around the slopes, and glad you could sit down with us over supper and share stories of the day! Snow still ok, and a great holiday

Delightful few days, scrumptious food and enough skiing to keep us busy.

To Rosie and Lucy, you are the best shalay girls in the world! Love Lila

Gemma, Simon, Mia, Cole & Harriet, Bruyeres, Apr '17

I leant to ski in Les Gets in 1985, driving up each day from Thonon-Les-Bains with my penpal sylain fornet and his family. I was 14 years old.

Thanks for being such fun hosts. Fantastic food and great chalet! First time away from xmas and you made it a great day for all of us! Great to have a separate area for the children to watch tv/play on the Wii. We have been to Les Gets 3 times before and love the area and am sure we will return again in the future.

Jo, Pete, Zak and Josh, Elise des Alpes, Dec ’14

Our 4th time in the Portes du Soleil, every snow experience has been different! One time no snow, one time an abundance of snow and variations! But nevertheless each time has been great and we will keep on coming back to Les Gets. We’ve had a great time at Pure Mountain, fantastic location and the chalet is a perfect layout for families.

Guy, Claire and Alistair, Elise des Alpes, Dec ’14

Lovely surroundings, very comfortable apartment, amazing cooking from Dan and Tilda – huge amounts of food (and beautiful table decorations at Christmas from Tilda). Dan was a magician in the kitchen and a wheeler-dealer for us to provide elusive Avoriaz lift passes. The weather was glorious though – the upside is a bit of a suntan!

Helen, Bruyeres, Dec ’14

Comfy, well equipped chalet, superb food and organisation from Dan – Much appreciated! Really enjoyable holiday.

Lesley, Bruyeres, Dec ’14

Yummy food!

Anna, Bruyeres, Dec ’14

I liked the food because it was tasty and yummy and delicious! I liked how Dan got us passes for Avoriaz.

Jenny, Bruyeres, Dec ’14

Thank you Dan and Tilda for a lovely welcome, marvellous food, comfy chalet and a very Merry Christmas! Les Gets is a lovely place to stay, will definitely come back to this area sometime.

Karen and Robin, Bruyeres, Dec ’14

Our second stay with Pure Mountain which has been as enjoyable as the first. Nothing was ever too much trouble with the food and accommodation excellent. Would definitely recommend and return.

Andy, Dan, Daisy and Matthew, Forestiere, Dec ’14

I’d always wanted to see the Alps in the summer, so this week has been wonderful. The beautiful green scenery was a delight, until the last day when it was all covered in snow. Big thanks to Ros and Sinead for the excellent cooking and putting up with my jokes. Also, thanks to all the pavements out there for keeping me off the streets. Les Gets is a lovely village, hopefully we can come back one day to ski here!

Mike, Forestiere, Dec ’14

A great holiday! Ros and Sinead are perfect hosts. Good food and hospitality. Lovely resort – especially when it snows!

Gill and Nigel, Forestiere, Dec ’14

Despite the lack of snow and lack of baggage at the beginning of the week, we have had a lovely week in Les Gets. Ros and Sinead provided us with amazing food every evening and a great big thank you to them. Ventured to Avoriaz and Samoens to find the snow and managed to ski every day. We hope to come back next Christmas and prove that there is snow here at that time of year!

Ian and Ginette, Forestiere, Dec ’14

Luxury definition: Sumptuous or extremely comfortable living or surroundings. As always Pure Mountain and chalet Elise des Alpes define luxury perfectly. Thanks to Jim and Tilda for looking after us so well – back home to diet now!

James, Renee, Harry, Jacob and Oliver, Elise des Alpes, Jan ’15

After a long, tiring day skiing (each day on a different type of snow) we could always count on a lovely cup of tea and a piece of delicious cake, and even on my Birthday I came back to find a tasty chocolate cake with the exact number of candles! The food was also fabulous and we are already thinking of returning back here in the future. Thank you all so much.

Myh and Le-an, Elise des Alpes, Jan ’15

Although the snow was a little lacking at the start of the week, there was nothing lacking in the hospitality shown by Pure Mountain. We felt totally spoilt having hot breakfasts and lovely dinners cooked for us each day in a warm and friendly environment. It was wonderful to finish the week with 24hrs of great snow, some great family time skiing and a wonderful meal amongst new friends. Thank you Jim and Amy for letting us have a real break away from the everyday, and allowing us to focus on relaxing and skiing rather than cooking and cleaning! We love your style, keep it up!

The Hoopers, Elise des Alpes, Jan ’15

Thank you for an amazing week; big shout out to Dan the Man for being such a good host and a great chef – top notch food.

Megan, Bruyeres, Jan ’15

What a FAB week. We brought the snow, gin and Marmite; you supplied a warm, cosy chalet with 10/10 food. Dan was a great host – nothing too much trouble (diet next week!). Hope you have a great rest of season, and hopefully we will be back again!

Rhian, Bruyeres, Jan ’15

Absolutely wonderful week. So lucky that the snow arrived for us. Thank you so much Dan for your delicious food that has been a daily highlight. Really have had a thoroughly enjoyable time here.

Kerry, Bruyeres, Jan ’15

Fantastic week, great snow and lovely food. Dan did a great job keeping us so well fed this week. Hot tub was very welcome at the end of the day.

Mark, Bruyeres, Jan ’15

Dan is the man! Food was absolutely amazing and our bellies were always full by the end of the night. Thankfully there’s an incredibly comfortable sofa nearby to recline on! I can’t think of many better ways of recovering from a hard day’s skiing than in the hot tub at chalet Bruyeres with a bottle of Piste Basher!

Charlie, Bruyeres, Jan ’15

Fantastic week skiing. INCREDIBLE FOOD – particularly the pea and mint soup! Never felt so consistently full in my life… Dan was a wonderful host, particularly for putting up with the continuous toilet talk!

Sian, Bruyeres, Jan ’15

This is our sixth or seventh holiday in Les Gets … and the best. The chalet is well furnished, especially like the sofa which is great for lounging around. Dan is an excellent host, very efficient and a great cook. Thank you.

John, Bruyeres, Jan ’15

We have all had a fabulous week – snow a little thin on the ground but we have skied each day. Tilda and Sinead have been fab – we have not wanted for anything and they have kept the children entertained with juggling and magic! The food has been great and the chalet is very comfortable. Thanks for everything – we will come back!

Sarah, Bruyeres, Jan ’15

This chalet is a very homely place. Tilda and Sinead are so nice and friendly and their food is lovely! I have enjoyed everything the past week – thank you so much.

Charlotte, Bruyeres, Jan ’15

Great food, great place, awesome magic, everything’s great. Thanks. After a long day’s skiing going into the hot tub is just what you need! Super comfy beds, great sofas and epic films.

Isobel, Bruyeres, Jan ’15

Despite the poor snow, we have had a wonderful week and have skied every day. Les Bruyeres has been just perfect. Sinead and Tilda the perfect hosts with great food and hospitality. Thank you so much for making our stay so comfortable and memorable. We want to be expert magicians and jugglers when we return next season! Thanks again

Carol, Bruyeres, Jan ’15

Thanks for a lovely stay! Dan and Tilda are awesome.

Richard, Gill, Antoinette, Thomas, Ben, Anna, Kim, Seren, Mark, Sarah, Alex and Bea, Bruyeres, Jan ’15

Fourth year here says it all! Great food and great company again. Many thanks for looking after us, and keep the hot tub hot for our return next year!

Dave, Henry, Nick and Chris, Bruyeres, Jan ’15

Dan, thanks so much for a great stay. You made us very welcome and we will definitely come back again! Lovely food and fab company (even though Rachel was the sole female with 8 blokes!) We’ve enjoyed the skiing and had a great laugh too. Thanks.

Martyn and Rachel, Bruyeres, Jan ’15

My 6th time in Les Gets came out to meet friends staying at accommodation nearby. While an accidental find this has been a great week, and I would recommend Pure Mountain and chalet Elise des Alpes to others. The service has been fantastic, amy and Jim have gone out of my way to make my stay a great one. Even as I write they got up early to make breakfast for my early departure. The attention to detail is amongst the best of any chalet holiday I’ve had in 20 years, and certainly Jim’s fantastic breakfasts were the best in Les Gets!

Rob, Elise des Alpes, Jan ’15

A lovely week, very lucky with the snow! Ros and Sinead were great, the food fantastic and nothing too much trouble for them. Another enjoyable New Year spent in Les Gets.

The Greaves’, Forestiere, Jan ’15

Thank you for a fabulous holiday – our first with Pure Mountain. Sinead and Ros are a great team and coped with us brilliantly.

Forestiere, Jan ’15

Thank you very much for a lovely holiday. Great food and some good laughs throughout the week. Sinead and Ros were fab hosts and are now about €40 in debt due to the card trick challenge!

Alice, Forestiere, Jan ’15

We had a wonderful 11 days in Forestiere. Food and service absolutely perfect thanks to Ros and Sinead, the perfect hostesses throughout our stay. Special thanks to Sinead for our morning cuppa – we will really miss this special touch!

Dorothy and Pete, Forestiere, Jan ’15

Another wonderful week in Les Gets. Many thanks to Sinead and Ros for relaxed hospitality and delicious food. Incredible snow conditions, mixed visibility a reminder of beautiful blue skies and views a treat for our last morning skiing – in the best snow we’ve ever skied. Fantastic – we’ll be back.

Wenda and Matthew, Forestiere, Jan ’15

We have had a fab week. Jim, Amy and Tilda have looked after us so well. Food lovely, snow great and fantastic family chalet. Hope to see you next year….

Jessica, Euan, Len, Liz, Lisa, Matt, Ruan and Isabella, Elise des Alpes, Jan ’15

Thank you for your hospitality over the past week. have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, the food has been fantastic and your help with the children has been greatly appreciated. There are a few individual messages from the children:

Finn age 7 – I’ve enjoyed sleeping in the bunk bed and Graham’s magic. Gaelle makes yummy omelettes and pancakes

Martha age 5 – I have loved the tea and desserts. I love the magic and Graham’s funny jokes.

Mia age 3 – I like the pictures and the magic and the view of the snow from our chalet. Gaelle’s food is yummy.

So, a huge thank you!

The Williams and Hapgoods, Elise, Jan ’15

Thank you once again for a fabulous holiday. The snow and hospitality has been top class . The only problem is we have to learn to ‘make magic’ when we return to the UK – Ellis has loved this, thank you.

Karen, Pete and Ellis, Elise, Jan ’15

Thanks so much for my amazing time yet again! You guys are great and I felt very welcomed. Always great food, great atmosphere, all in all, very homely. I shall be coming back!

Seb, Elise, Jan ’15

My first and only chalet experience. What can I say – it can only go downhill from here! An absolutely amazing time hosted by two fabulous people in Graham and Gaelle. Could not ask to meet two nicer and accommodating people – an asset to Pure Mountain for sure. I will definitely be returning with my family in the future, thank you both :)

Elise, Jan ’15

Thank you for making our holiday all the more. Great company, great food. If we come back to the same chalet we would hope you would be our hosts. The coffee by the bedroom door is a good touch.

Elise, Jan ’15

I’ve been skiing every year for over 10 years now, and have normally stayed in chalets. I have to say that Graham and Gaelle have been the best ever chalet hosts, fact! Thank you so much for everything, hope to see you again on another trip soon!

Huw, Elise, Jan ’15

This was our first trip abroad skiing, and it couldn’t have been better. Everything has been first class, from the transfers to and from the airport, to the chalet, our fabulous hosts, Jim and his team, and even the other guests, we couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks for a great week – we will definitely be staying with Pure Mountain again.

Jason, Sarah and Pippa, Elise des Alpes, Feb ’15

Wonderful chalet, wonderful food, wonderful holiday!

Joelle and Simon, Elise des Alpes, Feb ’15

Had a wonderful time. Food was amazing. Dan and Tilda looked after us very well, they are the best cooks ever.

Olivia, Bruyeres, Feb ’15

Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome and for cooking us the most amazing food. You have been the perfect hosts and we look forward to coming back again soon. Fantastic customer service from all including Jim and Co.

Sarah, Bruyeres, Feb ’15

“Home from Home”…. Thank you Dan and Tilda for making this such an easy holiday. Amazing food and nothing was too much trouble, just perfect.

Sarah, Bruyeres, Feb ’15

My first ski holiday – thank you for such a great experience. Dan and Tilda, thanks for the amazing food and service – we don’t want to go home!!

Helen, Bruyeres, Feb ’15

Thank you Dan and Tilda for an amazing time – the food was fantastic and nothing was too much of a problem. We don’t want to go home but look forward to coming back again!

Aimee, Bruyeres, Feb ’15

I like the breakfast with the chocolate croissants.

Jesse, Bruyeres, Feb ’15

Thank you Amy and Claire for a truly fantastic week in Les Gets. Everything about our holiday has been just perfect – lovely spacious chalet, outstanding hosts, first class breakfasts, cakes and dinners, and great company in the chalet. The skiing has been brilliant all week with sunshine too. The children have had a ball and no doubt think this is what all chalet holidays are like (if only!). Nothing was too much trouble and you’ve made our holiday very special.

Tony, Fay, Madeleine and Jessica, Elise des Alpes, Feb ’15

Thanks to Ros and Sinead for providing us with lovely meals and morning coffee to room. We have had a super week skiing with lots of snow in good company.

Tom and Linda, Forestiere, Feb ’15

Thanks to Ros and Sinead for lovely meals and hospitality. Best snow ever!

John and Andrea, Forestiere, Feb ’15

Fab week – thanks guys! Couldn’t have asked for more.

Katherine and Andrew, Forestiere, Feb ’15

Ros and Sinead are amazing! Good, no great food, funny and active they are the best two people I have ever met. And I ate and demolished every bit of food. Beds were so comfy and got a great nights sleep. Chalet is cosy and we all made friends with other families in the chalet. Outside we had plenty of fun: snowball fights, building snowmen and of course skiing! This holiday has been the best of all, thank you Pure Mountain.

Harriet, Forestiere, Feb ’15

Brilliant first family ski holiday. Les Gets ski school took Dara from a complete beginner unable to put on her ski boots, to skiing with enthusiasm and enjoying ‘en famille’ on her last couple of days. Now completely bitten by the ski bug. We LOVED the chalet, superb company, scrumptious food and a friendly homely fun atmosphere facilitated by Ros and Sinead who were amazing – we’ll be back!

Sara, Forestiere, Feb ’15

Thank you for such an amazing week. Chalet is lovely and cosy. Ros and Sinead prepared fab food and the cake for afternoon tea was scrumptious. Great easy going hosts that were so friendly and great with the children. My 4th time to Les Gets but first with Pure Mountain, and I was very impressed and am sure we’ll be back!

Hopkins family, Forestiere, Feb ’15

What can we say? Great chalet, great hosts, great weather, great skiing! Thank you so much. The food was amazing and the cakes were scrummy! Thanks for going the extra mile with us – we felt very well looked after.

Hood family, Forestiere, Feb ’15

It can’t be easy to look after a party of 12, including 6 kids aged 3 – 14, but Ros and sinead have been wonderful hosts. The food has been terrific, as have the afternoon cakes. Nothing was too much trouble, the chalet was clean, homely and warm.

The Bairds and Hiscocks, Forestiere, Feb ’15

A wonderful week with the whole family. The snow, weather and skiing were all perfect and the experience completed by our fabulous hosts Sinead and Ros. The food was so good and nothing too much trouble. I can see why people come back. Thank you very much and a big thumbs up.

Emily and John, Forestiere, Feb ’15

This has been a truly awesome holiday, and the best chalet ever! We have been treated to first class service from Claire and Amy. We loved the food, canapes and champagne on the first night. Finn loved his kids meals and helping around the chalet. Thank you both for making this such a wonderful holiday for us, and as Finn would say ….. oh ooooh, all done! Bye Bye!

Calum, Sue and Finlay, Elise des Alpes, Feb ’15

Chalet, food and wine were excellent. Our chalet hosts Amy and Claire were fantastic, we could not have asked for better. Thanks to all of the team at Pure Mountain for looking after us.

Svetlana and Peter, Elise des Alpes, Feb ’15 A truly fantastic week in this beautiful and cosy chalet. Our hosts Amy and Claire have been faultless – so welcoming, accommodating, fun, knowledgeable, catering queens and so much more! Our week was enhanced because of them!

The chalet is superb with everything thought out and of superior standard. We felt very privileged to spend time in an obviously well loved home – thank you Stuart! Loved it all – booked already for 2016! See you next year!!

The Chitty family, Elise des Alpes, Feb ’15

I liked staying here because the bed was warm, the food was lovely and I liked all the magic tricks.

Martha, Elise, Feb ’15

Erin, Elise, Feb ’15

Thank you Gaelle and Graham for looking after us so well. We have had a great family holiday that was made even more special by the lovely meals, attentive hosting and magic tricks!

James, Lisa, William and Erin, Elise, Feb ’15

Amy and Claire worked really hard for us and were lovely, and we all had a fantastic time – thanks.

The Jeeves Party, Elise des Alpes, Mar ’15

A great holiday, great chalet and superb staff. Thanks to all of the Pure Mountain team.

Mike Hart & Peter, Elise des Alpes, Mar ’15

For the third year running we have enjoyed a week of great company, weather, banter and apres ski! Huge thank to Ros and Sinead for making us feel very welcome and ensuring we were well fed and watered!

Kirstene, Forestiere, Mar ’15

Thank you for looking after us so well Ros and Sinead! Such friendly hosts, providing us with most delicious meals and cakes, and the rooms clean and cosy. We had loads of good skiing, and the weather was beautiful – a really lovely week at La Forestiere!

Evi and Gordon, Forestiere, Mar ’15

Friendly and helpful, Ros and Sinead looked after us so well. The food was of outstanding quality; the best I have eaten on any ski holiday (even our 9 year old ate things she wouldn’t eat normally!) The chalet was inviting and comfortable. Highly recommend Pure Mountain and hope to come back again. Many thanks for an exceptional week that will be remembered fondly.

Andy and Emily, Forestiere, Mar ’15

Fabulous holiday, great resort and the best chalet hosts ever! Third time here and Pure Mountain never disappoint – we will be back.

Thank you for a brilliant week. Food and accommodation was great. Tilda and Dan really looked after us and were great hosts. Thanks.

Natalie and Rob, Bruyeres, Mar ’15

Thank you so much – you’ve done everything possible to help us and keep us right. Had a fantastic time, and felt so welcome and at home that our three days has felt like a long, relaxing break. Food has been amazing and I enjoyed being stalked by Amy – thanks for the tour and tips. Hope to see you again soon.

Steve, Elise des Alpes, Mar ’15

We’ve had a really fantastic week, made all the better by staying in this lovely chalet. Amy and Claire could not do enough for us all – Brilliant!

Absolutely fantastic! Conditions were tres bon and basically had a fully sick time aye mate! Thanks for everything Pure Mountain, you guys were great!

Siva and Anna, Elise des Alpes, Mar ’15

At least our third time in this chalet – the bricks and mortar (wood!) are fabulous. The holiday was made by our hosts who were extremely welcoming and accommodating and managed to be cheerful despite our foibles!

Pete and Sheila, Elise des Alpes, Mar ’15

I can speak for all of us by saying we have had a splendid time in Les Gets and the staff of Pure Mountain have made our stay a pleasure. Great skiing, superb food (and wine!) and some super memories!

The Courtneys and Greenfields, Elise des Alpes, Mar ’15

We’ve had a great week with extraordinary weather. Excellent food and very comfortable chalet.

Robert, Elise des Alpes, Mar ’15

Lovely chalet, wonderful hosts, memorable bakewell tart! Thank you, Gaelle and Graham, for pampering us! We have enjoyed the food, the early morning cups of tea and the magic! If you ever come to Cornwall please contact me – I’d love to return your hospitality!

Hannah’s group, Elise, Mar ’15

Thank you for a lovely week. The chalet is lovely and always clean and tidy. Your hosting skills are brilliant, especially with the three little boys. Gaelle, your food was delicious every night and I loved your bakewell tart. Definitely going to try and recreate that back home. Thank you to your both for your ward welcome and providing us with a truly wonderful holiday.

Bill and Vicky, Elise, Mar ’15

We had a lovely week skiing and meeting you. We love the chalet and liked to stay here for a year. Thank you for cooking our food it was yummy! We liked playing in the snow. Thank you for teaching us a magic trick and we enjoyed them.

Elise, Mar ’15

Thank you for making our first family skiing holiday. The food has been fantastic. The magic and jokes have been entertaining. Thanks for being great with the kids it made it easy for us to enjoy and relax as well. Hope to see you again next year!

Emma, Tim, Charlotte and James, Elise, Mar ’15

Fantastic week, thank you so much Graham and Gaelle for being such wonderful hosts and making our first family ski trip fabulous. The chalet is perfect, as was your hospitality and cooking, especially the cakes! You have been so good with the children, and catered for them every evening separately to us. They have enjoyed the magic each night too, and will certainly be trying to remember the tricks! Really don’t want to go home now! Looking forward to next year’s ski adventures already.

Sarah, Elise, Mar ’15

Thank you so much , I can’t add much to Sarah’s words, but it’s been truly magical.

Elise, Mar ’15

Thank you for an absolutely fantastic week! Third year running, and the best! Graham and Gaelle are two of the kindest and loveliest people you are likely to meet, and go out of their way at every opportunity to make the stay more comfortable, fun and enjoyable. We have been spoilt with Gaelle’s amazing cooking and gorgeous cakes! And Graham’s amazing hosting too. Both of you have been so kind, showing us slopes we had never ventured to after six years of visiting Les Gets, and included us in day and evening plans – losing at bowling and losing at the pub quiz – I hope we didn’t let you down!! Thanks again so much for everything, you are both the perfect hosts, and now friends – we can’t wait to come back to Chalet Elise.

Bea and Becky, Elise, Mar ’15

Our first group ski trip with family and friends – and what a memorable experience! Thank you so much Graham and Gaelle – from the moment we arrived you made us feel so welcome, you have fed us wonderfully and entertained us endlessly. You have gone above and beyond to make sure we have not needed anything more. As ex-seasonnaires, we can truly say you are doing the most fabulous job, and are just born to do this. We wish you every success in the future, and hope it is full of love, luck and laughter.

Hannah’s group, Elise, Mar ’15

Our fifth year with Pure Mountain and again it didn’t disappoint. Sinead and Ros were fantastic and very flexible, putting up with varying times for kids meals and adults struggling to get children asleep. The chalet was lovely and homely, the food fantastic, especially for the one vegetarian. Everything from ski hire, lift passes to transfers was smooth and straightforward and the visit of Jim was great. Good to see Pure Mountain prospering and providing wonderful holidays for so many. Looking forward to next time! And so say all of us!

The Ackroyds, Doyles, Woollams, Todds and Huxfords, Forestiere, Apr ’15

I really enjoyed this holiday. It was the first holiday that I could really test myself. But the best bits were starting from the morning! The drinks were amazing, the breakfast was really nice and after skiing we would have tea and cake. And the dinner was fabulous. The slopes were perfect, the sky was always blue but unfortunately we now have to say goodbye to all of that and hello to home! Thank you Jim, Amy and Tilda you made this holiday perfect for me!

Honey, Elise des Alpes, Apr ’15

Jim, Tilda and Amy, thank you for making our holiday so enjoyable. The chalet is super along with the food you prepared for us (I quite like the wine as well!) You have been warm and friendly hosts – thank you.

Sue, Elise des Alpes, Apr ’15

This holiday was very enjoyable. The chalet was stunning, the food was gorgeous and the staff – Jim and Tilda – were lovely. As one of the people in the chalet was gluten free, Jim and Tilda made gluten free flapjacks, chocolate cake, brownies, lemon cake – you name it! Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday – 10/10.

Amy, Elise des Alpes, Apr ’15

Amazing week and chalet, perfect distance from the bubble and apres ski. Weather wasn’t great but the hot tub made up for it. Dan and Amy were amazing hosts, very calm with our 6 ‘chilled’ children!! Food was sublime! About to rebook for next year, we wish Dan all the best, and hope to see Amy again.

Hughes’ and Young’s, Bruyeres, Apr ’15

I liked it lots because we would go down a lot of slopes on our skis and then we would ski down the mountain and go across to Neige et Bonbon which was a sweet shop. I liked our shallay because the food was nice and there was a Wii we could play on.

Toby, Elise des Alpes, Apr ’15

Great holiday, would love to come back only with Pure Mountain! Jim and Tilda were brilliant. Thanks,

Richard, Elise des Alpes, Apr ’15

Fab holiday, very much enjoyed. Thanks Jim and Tilda for all the brill food and for looking out for us. Would love to come back again. Thank you.

Becky, Elise des Alpes, Apr ’15

Thank you sooooo much! Amazing holiday, we will be back, hopefully next year! Thank you.

Greg and Fay, Elise des Alpes, Apr ’15

Thank you very much for having us in your lovely chalet this week. Even though I couldn’t ski I still had a fab time thanks to your hospitality. Hopefully I will be able to learn next time if Granny brings us back here! Gaelle your food was amazing , it was like eating in a 5 star restaurant every night!

Sophie, Val, Mike, David and Nick, Elise, Apr ’15

Graham and Gaelle and Jim and the Pure Mountain team. We have had such a lovely week – thank you so much for excellent hosting skills and a special thank you for accommodating the other members of the tribe from Chalet Forestiere. There has been plenty of snow – everyone has had a great time and it’s been lovely coming back each day to a lovely chalet and excellent hot meal (and of course Graham’s magic skills!).

Davis et al, Elise, Apr ’15

I really enjoyed your food! I loved the jokes a lot! The room I was staying in was really nice. The sofas were comfy and it was so fun staying here! I really enjoyed skiing, it was fun. Thank you so much, I hope to come next year!

Imogen, Elise, Apr ’15

I’ve had a fab time. Graham I loved your jokes even though some of them were obvious! Gaelle the food was so good and tasty, I enjoyed it so much. Thanks for making us all feel at home and welcome. I had a great stay.

Alex, Elise, Apr ’15

Once again, a great week! Once again thanks for the fab food and for even organising a fresh lot of snow on Christmas Day. Alex had the best day of his whole year this week – job well done. Sinead you have been amazing – the children loved all your tricks and we think your sticky toffee pud is the best (sorry Dan!). Hope you enjoyed spending your Christmas with us!

The Marchants, Bruyeres, Christmas ’13

Thank you for another memorable Christmas in Les Gets! Thanks to Sinead for putting up with us, and for all the magic and juggling for the children …. and Rob! Big thanks also to Dan for general info and friendliness. Ski Republic and ESF have been fab too. We’ve all had a blast, our girls have the bug, so with luck we’ll see you again in 2014!

The Shutes, Bruyeres, Christmas ’13

The Cowen family have had a most amazing ski holiday/xmas/11th Birthday all in one week. To see our three children learn to ski and be able to ski with us for the last couple of days was fabulous. The best thing though is that they all want to come again. Well done Sinead you did a great job – good food and wonderful child entertainment. Many thanks Pure Mountain – another brilliant Christmas with you.

Karen, Adam, Darcie, Ava and Oscar, Bruyeres, Christmas ’13

Wonderful chalet, food was great.

Helen et al, Elise des Alpes, Dec ’13

Thanks for such an amazing time in chalet Elise des Alpes. Third time with Pure mountain and we will be coming back!

Jayne, Rob & Amber, Elise des Alpes, Dec ’13

Even though it was a short stay for me I had an amazing time. One of the loveliest most down to earth couples ever. Fantastic cooks! And amazing hosts! I wish you the best of luck with the future and hope you start up your own Pure Mountain.

Chelsea, Elise des Alpes, Dec ’13

Wow wow wow…thank you both so much for your fabulous hospitality. Josh you should be on Master chef. We have loved every second of our stay in this stunning chalet. I have found Pure Mountain very professional from the outset. Good luck with your wedding. We hope to see you again.

Wendy, Pat, Nicole and Christian, Elise des Alpes, Dec ’13

We’ve had such a wonderful time here and you have both made it so! Josh- what an awesome chef you are + Rachael you have been a little Christmas fairy this week. You are both fabulous! We wish you both lots of luck for your future and hope you have a magical wedding next year. We hope we can return here again and would defiantly recommend Pure Mountain.

Jonny, Shana, Amy & Jane, Elise des Alpes, Dec ’13

I think our friends have said it all. Thank you for a fabulous holiday and a wonderful Christmas – we will recommend you to everyone!!

Kerry and Jason, Elise des Alpes, Dec ’13

You were the most amazing hosts EVER! So friendly and the food was to die for, don’t think I’ve ever tasted anything like it. You are the most amazing couple perfectly suited. Couldn’t have asked for better chalet hosts.

Nicole, Elise des Alpes, Dec ’13

Piers, Bruyeres, Dec ’13

What a wonderful week. Sinead has been a fab host – amazing food and great fun – all of us have loosened our belts a notch despite all the exercise. Our first time in Les Gets, with a mixture of skiing abilities, and there was something for everyone. It was great to take two families down the Choucas and other blue runs on the last day, with several first time skiers. Les Bruyeres was exactly what we needed – loads of cakes and food on returning from the slopes. Harry was very cute and his onion gravy was very good! Both Harry and Sinead have been patient and excellent with the children. Well done to Dan and all the Pure Mountain team.

The Gardners, Hunters and Williams’, Bruyeres, Jan ’14 We have had an excellent week of skiing and sun. Sinead was perfect – fab food and Harry very cute. the whole package gave elderly beginners a great start to skiing. Throughout the week Sinead and Harry have been exceptional – nothing has been too much trouble.

The whole holiday and chalet has exceeded our expectations.

Mike Hart and friends, Bruyeres, Jan ’14

Exceeded all expectations! An amazing resort with slopes for all abilities. Weather has been fantastic. Sinead has provided us with outstanding food every day and has catered for all our needs in her calm, friendly and warm nature. Harry has been charming, adored by the children and we have looked forward to his big friendly smile every day.

Bruyeres, Jan ’14

Harry and Sinead have been exceptional with our children, Sinead even looking after one of our injured boys for the morning, entertaining him with her magic tricks and bubbly personality. Having a child injured on the slopes (breaking a leg) was stressful for the whole family – however Jim and his lovely team at Bruyeres couldn’t have done enough for us, providing us with local knowledge and being so supportive and kind during a difficult time. We look forward to returning!

The Ashtons and Murphys, Bruyeres, Jan ’14

The food you prepared for us has been quite simply the best we have ever had on holiday (or at home!) – really need your recipes!!

Annette and Robert, Elise, Jan ’14

Tom and Clare Whittal-Williams, Elise, Jan ’14

Charlie, Forestiere, Jan ’13

Fantastic friendly atmosphere, all down to Danny and Sinead. Coffee delivered to the room in the morning was a first and probably the best intro to their hospitality. They put up and even got involved with some of the more bizarre conversations of the group and were ever smiling. Best stay ever in the Portes du soleil area. Thanks.

Mikey, Forestiere, Jan ’13

Day1 – Geneva lost my bag in the airport found it an hour later!

The rest of the week=excellent!! Danny and Shinny were top class hosts and we had a fab time. Great grub, great magic and were lovely with the kids. Real “diamonds in the sky”!

Sue & Lucy, Bruyeres, Jan ’13

The only thing Dan did wrong was turning down our offer to come live with us! Seriously incredible holiday, made perfect by getting to hang out with Dan and eat his amazing food. Thanks so much for putting up with us! Oh and your juggling was pretty cool!

Cat, Bruyeres, Jan ’13

Dan’s the man! The best format for a chalet holiday I have come across. Everyone felt welcome, Dan was approachable and went out of his way to look after us all. Nobody went hungry and the food was double awesome. Full points

Bruyeres, Jan ’13

Thanks for an awesome week. We had great weather, the food was amazing – pretty much the perfect holiday! Sorry about the mess we made of the hot tub. Also the off-colour dinner converstations.

Liz, Mark, Katie & Alex, Elise, Feb ’13

We stayed in a chalet so posh,
It cost us a sackful of dosh.
Its name is Elise,
And it’s crammed full of cheese,
And Rachel and Josh do the nosh.
We’re leaving and shedding a tear,
Already planning to be back next year
To get back to the snow
Whether chairlift or tow
Finished off with great food and more beer!!

A complete change and new experience for us, never been to a ski resort before! Even though we didn’t ski, we had plenty of exercise and the crystal-sparkling snow on Les Chavvannes was magical. It was great to be together with our grandchildren, daughters and sons in law and we especially enjoyed Dan’s wonderfull cooking and relaxing management of the chalet.

Kathy & Ed, Bruyeres, Feb ’13

To Dan, I will miss the freshly baked croissants in the morning. Did you enjoy your song?

So much skiing without kids in tow… but we’ll all be back at Christmas we hope – get the sticky toffee pud ready!

Nicky & Jeff, Bruyeres, Mar ’13

What a great weekend we have all had in Chalet Bruyeres. Dan was an excellent host and the cooking was out of this world! In fact, one complaint – we were hoping to lose weight on this ski holiday. But due to Dan’s excellent meals I’m sure we have all put on weight. Well done Pure Mountain team.

Well it’s defiantly stopped snowing so we can just see the spectacular views surrounding the chalet! The location is just perfect! 2 Minutes away from the chairlifts on either mountain and 2 minutes away from the village (which is also beautiful!). We all felt that the chalet was brilliant, the rooms were beautiful, it was always tidy and welcoming and the food was fantastique!! Josh has been absolutely amazing, we all devoured his 4-course meals every night and he worked to our every need consistently. He made us feel so welcome and our stay in Les Gets was even more brilliant than expected! The only improvement would be a hot tub…….ha ha now that would be the ultimate chalet!!! Thank you so so so much for a fabulous holiday!! (and beautiful food Josh) hopefully see you again in the future.

A big thank you to all at Pure Mountain Holidays for an outstanding week’s ski trip. From the outset we were put at our ease by Jim’s professionalism in handling the booking. Upon arrival we were delighted to find a spotlessly clean and welcoming chalet in an ideal location. The hospitality shown by Josh and Rachael along with Claire was exemplary and the standard of Josh’s cooking and Rachael’s baking was super, both in terms of taste and presentation. We had a fabulous day out with Josh, Rachael and Claire on the hosting tour. Highly recommended! Quite simply the best ski holiday we’ve been on.

Thanks for everything!!

An amazing week, Dan’s cooking is the best I’ve ever had and both Dan and Clare were so friendly, helpful and accommodating. Can’t imagine how it could have been any better.

Inge and Family, Elise, Feb ’12

Thank you for making our stay so comfortable. The cooking was amazing and we will now be dieting for the next few weeks to shed the extra pounds!

The Wood Family, Elise, Feb ’12

I have enjoyed staying at your chalet – it made me feel at gnome and I loved the food. I hope that I can come back next year. The location of the chalet is great because it is near the slopes and its only a short walk. Thank you for a great holiday.

We, eleven middle-aged women, felt like eleven spoilt children over the last 4 days, thank you for your good care.

Annick, Erica and the Rest!, Forestiere, Feb ’12

Conditions were VERY good and displayed the ‘ski area’ to its absolute best! Plenty of brilliant skiing, though the temperature (-20°C @ 1500m) was a little challenging – even for experienced skiers! Hospitality was to a very high standard (again) and Emma and Eddie were very attentive. Strongly considering a third visit to ‘Les Gets’ next year and enjoying the ‘ Pure Mountain’ experience again – friendly, professional and committed service. Thank you for an excellent holiday!!

Ray & Catherine, Forestiere, Feb ’12

Emma, Eddie and all the team: Thank you for a really lovely and relaxing week and for even organising the weather so that we had some delicious skiing on top of everything else, nice!

Evi & Gordon, Forestiere, Feb ’12

Emma and Eddie, thank you for looking after us so well in the chalet. The poached eggs have been perfect, the duck breast was delicious and your welcome was wonderful! It’s a tough job looking after so many guests’ week in and week out, (especially when they’re your bosses!!) but we think you’re doing a fantastic job – well done.

Cat, Jim and Lucas, Forestiere, Feb ’12

Many thanks Emma and Eddie for a wonderful week. Excellent food and veggie option. We’ve had a brilliant week as always – food, company and skiing – whilst you’ve done all the hard work. Thanks Again. Best Wishes.

Vanessa and Andy, Forestiere, Feb ’12

Pure Mountain rulz!

Oliver, Bruyeres, Feb ’12

Highlight of the week: seeing Lukey whizz down the mountain and ask for more! Amazing! Thanks for everything.

Heather, Bruyeres, Feb ’12

What a fantastic week! Brilliant weather, brilliant skiing and brilliant food. Thank you so much for making us feel so comfortable and well fed. Luke thoroughly enjoyed whizzing down the mountains every day. What an amazing experience for him… it’s what life is all about. The huge smile on his face is worth more than a million euros. Thanks again so much.

Sarah, Bruyeres, Feb ’12

The art of speaking French: Bonjour.. and run away!

Emily (aged 2 years and 10 months), Bruyeres, Feb ’12

Merci for a fabulous week. I may not have skied but I have still all, really and truly enjoyed it! The cooking was very good and I looked forward to the new cake every day. The chalet was comfy, cosy and homely and Dan was the best chef/ cleaning/ helping person ever. If there are any future occupants reading then hello, and when you go in the hot tub you have to jump out, roll in the snow then jump back in. My Uncles did it and it is highly amusing!!! bI recommend the chocolate torte, it is very, very nice, not a single crumb left on the plate. This holiday gave me some very funny and memorable memories, and I shall treasure it forever.

Naimee, aged 13 and 10 months, Bruyeres, Feb ’12

We’ve had a fantastic holiday and really enjoyed Dan;’s yummy cooking… we will b back!

Ian and Georganne, Bruyeres, Feb ’12

A fabulous few days skiing in vest tops under scorching sun and bright blue cloudless skies.

Kim, Bruyeres, Feb ’11

There was a lost skier called Wally
Who tried to ski down from the Ranfolly
With a jacket so bright
He caused such a fright
They renamed the mountain
‘Where’s Wally?’

Jimbo and Cat. Yet again another top quality week! You guys are the only reason we keep coming back here. We would never have any reason to go anywhere else! Everyone loved it and my only child wants you, Jim, to be his Daddy. That’s pretty cool (even though I cry myself to sleep about it at night!) Brilliant stuff, and always remember, if you ever go to “Shithell” (Chatel)…wear the fox hat”

Lots of beautiful walks in the day and beer drinking in the evening, really enjoyed a ‘relaxing’ holiday never to be forgotten. Jim is my favourite cook, Lucas is the quietest baby I have ever seen. Adam is the youngest chef I have ever seen and he is the best. Jim is my favourite cook.

Fantastic time had by all. Jim and the team were excellent hosts, not to mention fantastic cooks. Nothing was too much of a problem and with its location you couldn’t ask for more. Not quite sure what Adam (work experience) made of us all!! Great time, great treat!

Simon, Forestiere, Feb ’11

Loved it!

Chloe, Forestiere, Feb ’11

What wonderful hosts, thank you very much and we hope to return next year.

Steve, Esther & Chloe, Forestiere, Feb ’11

Thank you so much Jim and the team for a great holiday! I enjoyed the food and especially enjoyed Jim’s tour of the Portes du Soleil. Thank you!

Ollie, Forestiere, Feb ’11

A lovely week – super food and fair amount of new snow. Aren’t you pleased that we took you skiing with us all those years ago?? Lucas is the sweetest baby and Phoebe enjoyed her time with him. Hope to see you all again soon at Purton.

May & Tony, Forestiere, Feb ’11

Thank you very much Jim! Your meals were lovely, I enjoyed looking after Lucas, he’s such a sweet boy and I hope to see him again soon!! You and Cat are really nice and made me feel at home straight away. Thank you, hopefully see you all soon.

Phoebe, Forestiere, Feb ’11

Had a fantastic week, Jim, the food has been wonderful and well worth blowing the diet for, thanks for such a great week, see you in Purton.

Paul, Forestiere, Feb ’11 Jim, Cat, et al.

Honestly, the best ski week I’ve ever had, completely fallen in love with Les Gets, so lucky with the snow and sun. Your cooking is superb and we appreciated the laid back atmosphere in the Chalet with so many noisy teenagers! See you all soon!

Imogen, Forestiere, Feb ’11

We have been to many Les Gets chalets before but this has been by far the friendliest, most hospitable and accommodating. The food has been delicious and Jim and Katherine have looked after us superbly. Many thanks and all the best for the future. We hope to see you again and apologies for introducing you to the Gummy Bear!

The Cases, The Ringers & the Vaughan-Jones’, Forestiere, Mar ’11

Thanks a million to Jay and Katherine. The food was awesome and I liked the hot tub and the Wii best. I had a great time skiing and the chalet was top class. Thanks again.

Georgie, Bruyeres, Mar ’11

What a great couple, we were well looked after, great food and company (sorry one or two were too fussy). We had a fantastic week skiing with the lads, what a laugh if not dangerous at times. Hope we were not too out of hand!!

Greg, Bruyeres, Mar ’11

Jay, the trip has been awesome and a big part of that was because of you, only thing missing was beans on toast (I am one of the fussy ones!), only playing the food was great, that is good enough to come back, cheers pal!

Darren, Bruyeres, Mar ’11

Superb holiday, excellent food, accommodation and position. Jay’s cooking was fantastic. Hot tub was a bonus. Sorry if some of our antics were a bit close to the bone, blame it all on Graham! All the best for the future.

P.S. Jay – thanks for the black run experience, it was great.

Andrew and Ron, Bruyeres, Mar ’11

Thank you for everything – wonderful chalet and so lovely to meet you both, didn’t get to meet little Lucas, so next time! So as not to break tradition, you have surpassed yourselves this week! Lots of love, see you soon.

For the mince lacking in the meals, Jim more than made up for it when wearing the one piece! The pivot mince wins, though the shoulder mince will do! Good times, with thanks.

Simon, Forestiere, Feb ‘10

Great visit to Les Gets even though we are elderly non skiers who came to enjoy the holiday with our family. You made us so welcome an allowed us to treat the chalet as our home, without requiring domestic chores from your guests. Thank you for excellent hospitality and friendship. Good luck in the future. and thanks for good weather too!

Diana & Hugh, Forestiere, Feb ‘10

This was amazing for everything that happened.

Alfie, Forestiere, Feb ‘10

Our first trip to Les Gets and a great time was had by all of us, from non-skiers and beginners to some slightly better skiers… or so they think! Thank you so much to Cat and Jim for looking after us so well – fantastic food, guiding and general care.

Ruth, Andrew, Nancy, George, Alfie & Nell, Forestiere, Feb ‘10

Thank you Jim and Cat for our third great holiday with you. As usual, food is fab and serservicevce was A1. On a personal note, our trip to Avoriaz was an experience of a life time and I’m sure the boys will re-live it frequently. I do expect that at the end of it we will have done the whole of Avoriaz at 100mph!!! Jim, it was a pleasure to watch and ski with you. Great news about little feet on the way. Keep us posted, and post a pic on the web.

John & Michelle, Forestiere, Feb ‘10

I’d like to say thank you for a lovely holiday! The food was perfect – could have been served in a 5* restaurant! I hope your baby is healthy and all goes well. I don’t think this holiday could have been much better!

Ruby, Forestiere, Feb ‘10

Thanks for the amazing holiday and really good food. I really liked it when Jim took us to Avoriaz, it was brill. Hope we can come again.

John & Kath, Forestiere, Feb ‘10

You finally killed us with food! I can’t believe how much we had to ski just to earn one piece of cake! Seriously, we’ve had the most amazing time and can’t fault a thing. The resort is fabulous, the skiing second to none and the snow was perfect. Good luck with the new addition to your family and we hope that all goes well. Hope to see you both again,

Oh! What a lovely week we’ve had! Excellent skiing, great guide (so nice not to use a piste map on the first day so thank you Jim). My tummy is full to bursting, your food is outstanding! I think I am looking a little like Cat with a bulging belly! Thank you Cat for the lemon drizzle cake. Got to go but we shall surely be back. Great hosts, fab chalet, superb skiing – we definitely won’t for’gets’ you!! Thank you for everything. Good luck with baby, we wish you well.

Eleven adults rocked up to ski
We brought 2 babies and games for the Wii
The snow was great and the sun came out
Jim took us on a tour to ski about
Cat makes great cakes, lemon drizz

Cat, can Jim actually reach the microwave?!
The best evening meal was certainly the duck
And after a weeks skiing we’re to tired to… dance!

Will, Apr ‘10

Thanks soooooo much for making the week soooo enjoyable, even though I couldn’t ski for most of the time. It’s sooooo coll to come back in the afternoon to a lush cake by Cat and a steaming mug of tea in front of Family Guy. The food in the evening is so good that it could be from a gourmet 5* restaurant. The accommodation is a 5* hotel standard. Well done Pure Mountain for making my first skiing holiday a total success.

Tilly, Forestiere, Apr ‘10

You have both exceeded all expectations: The food was excellent and needless to say, we have all had a fantastic time. And when time and funds permit, we will be back in flash. Lots of love and can’t wait for news on the baby,

Chris, Forestiere, Apr ‘10

Thank you for the welcome, the wakey wakey snakey tea, the quality food, the ski hosting and for looking after Kit… he’s all yours!So sorry to have to leave early. Enjoy the rest of the Rendles and Godwins.

Kate, Forestiere, Apr ‘10

Dear Cat and Jim. We don’t want to leave! Thank you for a wonderful holiday: Food was prepared and presented amazingly, the welcome we have received has made our holiday. All we can say is thank you so much, and can’t wait for next year! Fondest love,

Glyn, Sharon and Natasha, Forestiere, Jan ‘09

Thanks Jim and Cat for your help with making the organisation of the trip really straight forward. A brilliant week all round – count us in for next year, hopefully with additional accommodation or a bigger chalet for the extras in the hotel who were very jealous of our chalet living. Many thanks,

Kate, Mark, Max and Thea, Forestiere, Jan ‘09

Merci beaucoup – a fantastic week. Love the chalet, great food and the hosting was fantastic. Planning to be back next year. Many thanks,

Steve and Vickie, Forestiere, Jan ‘09

JimCat,
Ooh, what a Pure Mountain adventure we had!
The skiing was good, my boarding was bad,
The food was exquisite, the hosts were divine,
Forget the exchange rate, you gave us free wine!
We skied the blacks, we skied the reds,
We chucked in our keys, then we all swapped our beds!
Wiis are good, Wiis are good,
Our thighs, bums and knees are good,
Tea in the morning, cake at night,
Blue skies all day and the snow’s alright!
So thanks JimCat, you’re both so lovely,
Always smiling and ever so bubbly,
We thank you so much for the time that we’ve had,
But if you have us next year, you’re technically mad!

All our love,

Chris, Kath, Glyn, Sharon, Mark, Kate, Steve, Vic, Johnathan and the loud bunch of kids xxx, Forestiere, Jan ‘09

Thanks for helping to make this our best skiing holiday ever. We never would have believed that a skiing holiday with a baby would be so easy. You really went the extra mile for us. Although we have been to Les Gets before, the ski hosting really showed us the mountain. Fabulous skiing each day and a dinner party each night. We’re looking forward to the recipe book! Good luck for the rest of the season. Hope to book with you again in the future.

James, Charlotte and Olivia, Forestiere, Jan ‘09

What a fabulous week! Cakes were all superb, especially Pete’s b’day cake. Nothing has been too much trouble. Thank you! Hope to return soon,

Pete and Pam, Forestiere, Jan ‘09

The best of luck to you both in your venture… you deserve to succeed. The food was great, the hospitality faultless and the ski guiding much appreciated. We’ve all had a wonderful time, and will be back!

…PS for a veggie to spend a week in France and not have to resort to omelette once is a real tribute to Cat’s ingenuity – thanks! Carol.

John and Carol, Forestiere, Jan ‘09

Thank you so much for such a fantastic holiday. Nothing has been too much trouble and you have really looked after us and the kids. The food was amazing (will be using your recipes – please can we have them?). Thank you for the kids’ tea, they really loved them. Also thank you for taking us to the medical centre when Freddie had a poorly ear. It has been such a special holiday. You have been fantastic hosts. Big thank you and you’re welcome in Manchester anytime. Lots of love,

Caroline, Patrick, Jim and Fred, Forestiere, Jan ‘09

Thank you so much for a wonderful week. From the first chat back in October, to all the pre-holiday organisation you’ve made the whole process of organising a large group easy. Everything about the week has been superb – the little touches like tea in the morning and the day ski guiding has been great. Everyone loved the food and the chalet, and you’ve been so patient with the kids. We would definitely book with you again, regardless of the chalet. Good luck with the rest of the season and the summer, and hope to see you again.

Paul and Emily, Forestiere, Jan ‘09

Thanks for everything.

Ben, Forestiere, Feb, ‘09

Fantastic and brilliant service, great food and great fun.

Robert, Forestiere, Feb, ‘09

We had a great holiday because of you. You have cooked us super tasty dinners and we always asked for seconds, especially the spag bol. I hope we come next year and have just as great time as we did this time. You have made our holiday!

Finlay, Forestiere, Feb, ‘09

I’ve had a brill time, best holiday yet and next time it’ll be even better! Thanks for dinners (even though I didn’t like the puddings). Cross your fingers for me at my baritone grade. A Baritone is an instrument. I’m sure we’ll come every year. Love from,

Gabe, Forestiere, Feb, ‘09

I had a brill time at your place. I loved all the dinners especially the puddings! I have enjoyed coming back from the cold into the nice warm house of yours. Thanks a lot,

P.S Hope I’m back next year.

Alex,  Forestiere, Feb, ‘09

Dear Jim and Cat, you’ve bettered our stay of last year. I’m sure it’s your wife that makes the difference! Thanks for organising ski passes and school for the group. Seven beginners and we all skied together by the fourth day, so you can understand how excited and grateful we are to you guys. I hope we can get sorted for next year and make it three in a row with you. Good luck for the rest of the season, regards

John, Michelle, Fin and Gabe, Forestiere, Feb, ‘09

Cat and Jim, thanks again for making this year’s stay even better than last year. We have had a fab time – food, wine, company and hosts were all excellent. Hope we can make it third time lucky! Lots of love,

Michelle,  Forestiere, Feb, ‘09

Skiing for us was certainly a first, I think that John was fearing the worst – images of bruises and broken bones and tired children full of moans! But there you go, how wrong could we be! The snow, sun and fun did it for me, and then there’s the cake, the food and the wine. Thanks Jim and Cat, the experience was divine.

Sue and John, Forestiere, Feb, ‘09 Cat and Jim, thanks for a great holiday! Great food and drinks. Cheers! The DVD player came in handy!!! (Lauren, Tom, Danni, Kristy, Tammy, Scott, Karl, Pod, Jules, ‘Gump’, Nigel, Lloyd, Vik, Kirstyn, Forestiere, Feb)

Awesome! Food and your company were second to none.

Steve, Forestiere, Feb ‘09

Thank you for a superb week. Good luck to you both in your ventures,

Gina, Forestiere, Feb ‘09

We arrived at Geneva, where were we at?
A green bobble hat appeared and took us to Cat.
It was snowing and windy, a right blummen storma,
Little did we know how we’d love the chicken korma.
We got to the chalet, of skiing we were shy,
We’d not of course planned for the orange blur of Guy.
Each dawn we’d awake with a coffee and “morning!”
Whilst the girls in Nic’s class were pretty and fawning.
We’ve seen Dunc take a tumble, Pam shout and cry,
We’ve seen Rich yearn for Steve and asked ourselves why.
We’ve drunk wine by the gallon and litres of beer,
Has it been fun? Yeah, here’s to next year!

I had the best time ever here and you were both brill cooks. I wanted to go to La Clusaz, but now I want to go here every year. Thanks so much, your best customer,

Joss, Forestiere, Mar ‘09

Cat and Jim. Thank you for your patience putting up with us and our hordes of children. We’re all leaving with developing muffin tops – the food was just perfect! Great relaxed atmosphere and chalet in a perfect position. The skiing was perfectly suited to our mixed ability group and nothing was too much trouble for you guys. Thanks again, and love from,

Well run chalet with very friendly and hospitable hosts. Jim and Cat arranged everything so I could just ski and worry about nothing else. I was on the slope after being in the resort for only 1 hour! Thanks for a great break.

Jimbob and Cat. To have one’s baby brother and sis-in-law cooking and looking after us for a whole week has to be a result. I have to say though, everything you know I taught you, so I will take all those great compliments in this book thanks. Seriously, you guys are the best (even in your tight, wightt one-suit!). Love you loads,
