Chalet & Apartment Reviews
As usual, a great stay at Chalet Himalaya ! En plus de l'accueil toujours chaleureux de la famille Gardiner, des délicieux repas de Cathy, du confort du Nordic Lodge we were lucky to enjoy a almost full sunny week of skiing. See you next year at the latest.

We had a wonderful family holiday thanks to the outstanding help and support from Mark and Cathy, and the warmest welcome imaginable, excellent location and facilities and simply wonderful food. We made some wonderful memories.

I really appreciated the wonderful company we had at dinner each night and the conversation we enjoyed with our hosts and other guests as we ate. I would highly recommend staying at the chalet and I look forward to visiting again in the future!

Having experienced many catered chalet holidays in the past, I can honestly comment that our 'Himalaya' experience was one of the best EVER! A real family chalet - amazing authentic meals and genuine care form our hosts that their guests were receiving everything they needed and wanted. An amazing base for a wonderful ski holiday. Wouldn't change a thing.

30 Praz de l'ours is in a great location, close to shops and restaurants. The village of Vallandry is much more authentic than Arc2000, 1950 or 1800. Easy communication with Mark about our early arrival, which he was able to accomodate. Paperwork on the way in and out was painless and quick. We had a great time with 7 people in the apartment although it was quite cozy! We will certainly come back when we come to this ski area again.

Thank you for all your personal assistance, starting with getting the ski-passes, continue with the help and discount at the Inter-sport shop for hiring the equipment and by helping us with any extra request we had during the stay - all with a very good spirit and kindness. Niv Kfir - Israel

Die freundliche, zuvorkommende und unkomplizierte Abwicklung und Kommunikation mit dem Gastgeber Mark. Die kleinen Details die den Komfort, zusammen mit der Sauna, perfekt gemacht haben.

Super vakantie gehad in dit mooie appartement die met alles uitgerust was die er moest zijn. Onze host Mark is een hele attente en vriendelijke man die ons goede uitleg gaf zowel voor de komst als bij aankomst in het appartement. Heel dicht gelegen bij de skischool alsook bij de piste wat het leuk maakt met kinderen. Zeker voor herhaling vatbaar! SUPER!

Mark and Cathy run a lovely chalet tucked away in a quiet location and were excellent in assisting with the booking of the holiday and helping our family, with young children, sort out the important ski hire, ski school options and lift passes so that we could get a clean start the morning after arrival. The chalet is conveniently located close to the lift system to soon get you up high and enjoy the great snow, even in late March. Great food and convivial atmosphere made this a holiday to remember. Thoroughly recommend. Chris Glegg

Chalet Himalaya is a fantastic property in a superb location, we had a fantastic relaxing stay which was a perfect counterpoint to the amazing skiing available in the Paradiski region

Myself and my friends had a wonderful time staying with Mark, Cathy, Tom & Suzie. They were so welcoming and full of great local knowledge and going above and beyond to make sure we were well catered for and had everything we needed to know. We loved all the different aspects the chalet had to offer such as the hot tub and the amazing fireplce. The food we were served daily was really great and such a lovely range, my favourite evening was the Raclette evening and the blueberry pudding! I really look forward to coming back and staying and specially now I have slightly improved my skiing!

Good sized rooms and en-suites at Chalet Himalaya. A very spacious living and eating area, super hot tub and large decking area, plenty of boot and ski storage. Great fresh food, there was always fresh fruit on the table, tea and coffee at the ready and home made cake. The log burner is fantastic, sooooo toastie.

Idéal pied à terre pour 2 personnes ( + éventuellement 2 enfants). La résidence est bien entretenue, les pistes et les commerces sont à proximité immédiate. Nous avons plaisir à revenir chaque année chez Mark.

Encore plus que l'appartement lui même c'est la gentillesse et la sympathie de Mark que nous apprécions le plus. Il se met en quatre pour satisfaire ses clients. Nous recommandons chaudement un séjour chez GOALPINE

Logement au pied des pistes et au centre des magasins. Tout est prévu pour la facilité et le confort. Sans surprise, chaque cm est rentabilisé. Accueil chaleureux et les démarches pour les forfaits, le matériel et les cours de ski sont simplifiés également avec quelques remises toujours intéressantes. Nous avons passé une semaine de ski très agréable. Merci

From the moment I saw Chalet Himalaya on the internet, to calling for more information, to booking a week with catering, to the welcome we received, to the greats conversation and food, to helping us with our ski hire and passes, to booking a restaurant…. Every step of the way, we were helped and given good advice… excellent service, chalet, food and hosts. Highly recommended. Thank you Cathy & Mark, see you again very soon!

Really enjoyed our week of skiing - including hearing Marcus Brigstocke & Co at the Mont Blanc bar and going for an outstanding dinner at Le Petit Hibou in Nancroix.

So I will admit that this was my 14th time in Chalet Himalaya with Cathy and Mark. We come back because they are really great hosts with a winning formula of food, location, calm and excellent hospitality (even as the Coronavirus shut the resort around us), in a ski station with so many positives and very few negatives. The bubble replacing the lobster pots in a couple of years will be the cherry on the cake.

Mark and Cathy were brilliant hosts at Chalet Himalaya. They were attentive, friendly and really made our group of 13 feel at home. We loved the chalet itself - it was kept very tidy, and the hot tub over looking the mountains was a great addition. The food was delicious and Cathy and Mark made sure to cater to everyone's dietary needs. I will definitely be visiting again!

We had an amazing holiday at Mark and Cathy's place. It's ideally located a short walk from the lift into Peisey, and has an amazing set-up (we loved the hot tub). Everywhere is clean and well looked-after. Most importantly, Mark and Cathy are amazing hosts and really care about their guests...

I would highly recommend Chalet Himalaya to anyone. Mark and Cathy were exceptional hosts. The chalet was excellently appointed and spotlessly clean. I couldn’t have wanted for more.

Pour une première chez vous Cathy et Mark, ce fut une super semaine dans la bonne humeur avec en plus l'occasion de pratiquer la langue de Shakespeare avec vous et une belle bande venue d'outre-Manche. Au plaisir, Pierre

We had a great stay- this year we tried coming overnight by Eurostar. The plus is that you arrive early on the first Saturday and leave late on the second Saturday, so you get an extra 2 days skiing. It was easy to get to Praz by public transport using Mark's directions. The flat was warm and well equipped and very conveniently situated for everything we needed.

Wow, great location, from easy parking in front of the apartments to catching the chairlift behind the apartments about 100 metres away. An excellent selection of shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars within 5 minutes walk and all very friendly and welcoming. Our hosts Mark and Cathy provided all the information we required prior to our stay, during and after and were always available if there happened to be any issues (couldn't find the ski locker lol). The apartment (no.26) was the cleanest apartment we have ever stayed in and had everything you needed. There were 4 adults staying and the apartment did work for us and this is one place we would definitely go back to.

C'est la troisième fois que nous venons au Praz de l'ours, cet appartement fonctionnel, confortable très bien situé nous offre de belles vacances. Le rapport qualité prix n'a pas d'équivalent que ce soit à Vallandry, aux arcs 1600, 1850, etc. Les vacances 2021 sont déjà dans l'agenda
