Just returned from a terrific ski holiday with Stanford Ski, 11 days from 21st January 2019. ACCOMMODATION -Excellent for self-described 2 star chalet hotel. All rooms have en suite facilities and good sized radiators. The whole chalet was comfortably warm at all times and there was no need to light the log fire. Beds were very comfortable. FOOD - what a star they have in, Mario, the ever smiling happy chef. He produced meals of the highest standard every day. LOCATION - almost perfect! The free navette bus to Jaillet leaves from the front door. The navette for Mt Arbois and for Rochebrune leaves from across the road 30 yards away! So no need to lug skis halfway across town. In the evening the main town of Megève was five minutes stroll away. CHALET MANAGEMENT- In Stewart and Helen we couldn’t have been better served. They worked tirelessly and were always helpful and knowledgeable about the skiing conditions; being BASI qualified ski instructors was a bonus for us. A very pleasant couple. It was also good to meet Rory, the manager of all Stanford’s accommodation, on several occasions. GENEVA TRANSFER - Only an hour and a quarter in their own mini-buses door to door. Thanks Stewart and Olivia. CHALET STAFF- Olivia, Matt, Charlie, and Jude were all very genial and worked very hard. They clearly enjoyed working as chalet staff, not always the case in some other organisation’s chalets! SKI AREA – suited us perfectly. We’ve been coming to this area for six years on the trot. First time with Stanford, and definitely not the last. Snow conditions were outstanding, so that really was an extra bonus; powder everywhere on empty pistes...

Boys annual jolly... Warm welcome. Comfortable room with a good balcony view of the mountains. Food menu varied, tasty and interesting. Afternoon tea always had a fresh baked cake or cookie. Convivial evening meals with lively conversation and new friends. Would stay again excellent value.

My first Chalet experience and neither my wife or I were disappointed, in fact, it was awesome. We had a fantastic 5 days in the Chalet and were lucky enough to be staying with the Stanford Skiing owners. This is a well run family business and the staff and family could not have been more helpful. The atmosphere was soooooo good and we had an absolute ball over Xmas. The chef was amazing and produced the most delicious food, as well as a huge spread on Xmas Day. The staff were all knowledgeable about the ski runs and were always happy to help. Thank you all so much for making our short Xmas break so very enjoyable.

A quality chalet : exceptional cuisine. 4th stay in Megeve with Stanford , previously at their adjacent chalet Sylvaner. This one is somewhat more expensive , but the comfort and catering is definitely at a higher level. The chefs / hosts could not be more helpful and produced dinners to delight us all - catering for gluten free was fuss-free and reliable. The bedrooms / hot water supply were good ; the lounge very comfortable with more than enough seating ( not always the case in ski chalets ! ). Location good at 5 minutes easy walk to the main resort access. And good skiing to boot !

Best chalet with service This was a business ski trip where we stayed at this darling chalet. Adorned with cute touches throughout there were little hearts on the doors, a chalkboard welcome sign, the tartan curtains, afternoon tea, personal chef and cleaning service. There’s even a sauna on the lower level! This place offers lovely managers who are very helpful and friendly. It’s very convenient being just down the block from the lift, around the corner to a small convenience store, ski/snowboard rental shops and restaurants. About 15 minute walk to middle of town for additional shops, restaurants or (if you like) a dance club.

Trip of a lifetime I took my family (x9) to Les Clochettes in Megeve booked through Stanford Ski for my 70th birthday at Christmas. Whatever expectations I had were trumped by the amazing service offered by this company. All the things you expect a travel company to deliver were done to perfection. Nothing was too much trouble, friendly and accommodating staff, and the food was gourmet cooking every day by two hard working and talented NZ chefs. My only complaint was that I had to leave. Thoroughly recommended - thank you so much - you made by birthday special.
Raymond L. Les Clochettes, 3/1/19
Great location and accommodation This was our 4th year with Stanford. We usually stay in Sylvana but decided to go into Clochettes this year. Fantastic food, cosy and a great size. Location close to slopes is second to none. We love Megeve and there is so much skiing. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. As drink all included felt it was worth extra over Sylvana. Will return again.

Superb cuisine, the best we've ever had in a chalet. Only complaint was the sheer volume of delicious food! Well done chef! Our chalet hosts have been exceptional, both in terms of proficiency and competency. Both were also extremely personable and embracing of the children. Our holiday was perfect in meeting with the needs of a family skiing party - the location was perfect and chalet hospitality and levels of comfort were excellent. We shall certainly look to return.
The Lance Family. Les Clochettes, 8/4/18
Kevin is an amazing chef! He did a great pizza demo for the kids in a lovely manor. Sophie was always positive, helpful and friendly. They both made us feel very at home in a very relaxed environment. There were great slopes for beginners with no queues for the lifts. Love Megeve!
The Litchfields. Les Clochettes, 8/4/18
The best things were the location and ambience of the chalet. The helpful and positive attitude of Stanford Skiing staff and Henry's Sport was excellent. Sophie and Kevin were especially good.
Mr Hook. Les Clochettes, 11/2/18
All members of staff we've encountered have been fantastic. Megeve is a lovely resort, we felt very welcome by all and especially enjoyed our two evenings with owners John, Kay, Elizabeth and Caroline. We're coming back!

Mr Crayden. Les Clochettes, 21/2/18
Sophie and Kevin who work in the chalet were so helpful and made out holiday an experience to remember. As was Rory the resort manager, who we saw everyday. Stanford Skiing are an amazing team. The evening meals exceeded my expectation - the food was just amazing. Can't say enough about how wonderful everything was. It was so perfect from start to finish. We hope to come back and are already singing your praises to friends. Thank you to all involved.
The Tennents. Les Clochettes, 26/12/17
Thank you for my kids meals and dairy free butter and almond milk. Amy's cakes are amazing! Megeve had excellent weather and snow. Ski instructor Katie Campbell (who you recommended) gave fantastic lessons. Top marks for friendliness and excellence.
Mrs Passingham. Chalet Hotel Rond Point, 8/4/18
Stanford Skiing has genuine caring staff - Mikey cooked excellent meals, Ben, Grace and Jake are all very helpful and smiley. A good team, well done Amy! Great first impressions with airport transfer and Jake was very informative, helpful and caring. The snow conditions and ski club were brilliant. Matt was great for relaxed groups and it was great to see Pat again. Great ski technique!
The Slater family. Chalet Hotel Rond Point, 4/3/18
I very much enjoyed my stay in Megeve at Chalet Hotel Rond Point. The accommodation was good, and I appreciated the availability of single rooms. The catering was of good standard, and the staff very friendly and helpful- the ambience is indeed very personal and cosy. The location of the chalet is extremely convenient for all of the ski zones, either directly or via bus stops within literally a few steps of the door, and for the town itself, and the fact that Megeve is a pretty old town is a strong positive. The incredible quiet on the slopes and quality of grooming were notable. I would be pleased to visit again, and would certainly choose Stanford’s if I did.
Mr Stanton. Chalet Hotel Rond Point, 11/1/18
All staff were very helpful especially Dougal and Dean. Fabulous food, helpful and professional staff, loved the chalet. We'll be back.
Mr & Mrs Barry. Chalet Sylvana, 18/3/18
When we arrived, Patryk picked us up from the airport and was very chatty and personable. All other staff were lovely too - friendly and helpful all and a credit to the company. We enjoyed lovely, varied meals with great presentation. So glad we found you, I'm sure we will be back!
The Wheatley family. Chalet Sylvana, 25/2/18

"Thank you so much for arranging our trip to Megeve. Everything was extremely well organised – the transfer, the ski passes and all the facilities at the Rond Point. All of your staff were helpful, lovely and very good at what they did be it driving or cooking. We should particularly mention Amy who was running the Rond Point with one person short and not only kept everything going totally efficiently but always found time to be helpful and pleasant. Our thanks for a great short break."
