Mark and Cathy were great hosts and helped with all the organising of transfers etc. The chalet was very well laid out which meant even with 4 families (17 in total) we didn't feel like we were living on top of each other. The big farm house dining table was amazing, as well as looking beautiful it fitted all of us round for breakfast together. The log burner kept us all cosy and the chalet was well heated and there was a boot room with boot warmers. The hot tub was well used (especially by the kids) with amazing views over the valley. The short walk to the lobster pots everyday was fine and we were able to get all the kids to ski school on time with New Gen each day. We were all well fed by Cathy’s lovely evening meals including a 4th cheese course every night for the adults and some very yummy cakes at tea time. The kids enjoyed the food too (and there was plenty of 2nd helpings for the bigger kids so they didn't go hungry).

I have been visiting Vallandry and staying in Mark and Cathy's apartment for several years now. Not only is the location superb but dealing with Mark and Cathy is always an absolute breeze so I hope to continue coming to Vallandry for many years to come. Nothing is too much trouble for them to organise and they are always on hand to answer any queries that I may have. As a result my holidays to Vallandry always run like clockwork and that's before I even hit the outstanding ski area! I always enjoy my time in Vallandry immensely, it's always disappointing to have to leave and I always look forward to coming back again as soon as possible! Thank you Mark and Cathy for being such brilliant hosts.

This was our third visit to Chalet Himalaya, we love everything about it. Mark and Cathy are amazing and do everything they can to make your stay effortless and really special. The location of the chalet is not only beautiful but in an excellent position to make the most of the fantastic ski area of Les Arc and La Plagne.

We had a fantastic week at Chalet Himalaya. Mark and Cathy are wonderful hosts who went above and beyond to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. The home cooked food was terrific and the chalet was clean and very comfortable. This is our second stay and we look forward to returning again.

A lovely chalet with 6 en suite bedrooms and the post-ski hot tub and sauna were warmly welcomed. Mark and Cathy are attentive hosts, providing a delicious breakfast selection, wonderful afternoon cakes and the 4 course dinner menu was delicious and varied. Mark & Cathy joining us for dinner was a lovely touch, especially when their delightful children and dog came down to meet us later on! Discounted lift passes and equipment hire through Mark was invaluable, and in general Mark gave us excellent recommendations for activities and amenities in the local area! Chalet Himalaya offers a spacious dining table and sofa area, perfect for playing social deduction/trivia games in the evening, which was of particular interest to our group. Just make sure you don't miss the last lift home of the day from Plan Peisey down to Peisey village!! We would be delighted to return in the future!

A fantastic location practically on the slopes of this small, but delightful resort. You have access to everything you could need - appropriate shops for equipment, food and supplies, ski passes and a chairlift which was never busy despite the excellent snow conditions. A jewel in the crown.

Le chalet est spacieux et très bien équipé. Le sauna et le jacuzzi apportent véritablement un + à l'endroit. Les propriétaires sont discrets et à dispo si besoin. Chaque chambre a une salle de bain et un wc, c'est également un vrai +. La vue est belle et la terrasse agréable.

We visited Chalet Himalaya in Feb 2018 - four families, a group of 18. Mark and Cathy are the perfect hosts, very welcoming, and nothing was any trouble. We could just relax and be looked after all week. Sitting in the hot-tub, watching the sunset catch the peaks in the opposite valley after a day on the slopes was just perfect.

I have stayed in many Chalets' since I started Skiing ,Chalet Himalaya is by far the best. I have just returned from an 8 days skiing holiday over the Christmas break , with 10 friends and family, we had the most amazing time. A warm welcome from the start, amazing freshly prepared food with fabulous produce & always a varied local cheese board to finish off the evening meal. Mark & Cathy are fantastic hosts who go above and beyond to make you holiday truly amazing even, if you're not skiing or snowboarding. The chalet is perfectly situated to drive from the UK with no expensive parking charges at the resort . Once in resort everything you need is within easy access whatever activities your doing in resort. Mark & Cathy's wealth of local knowledge means you really do have an amazing holiday experience. I have already booked for my next stay in January 2018.
