This is a fantastic chalet and hosts Will and Claire ensured that our holiday was the best it possibly could be. Great location and transfers to the slopes. Fantastic food, really clean and spacious. We were a party of 17 and all had a fantastic time, We would definitely recommend a holiday at Brown Bear Lodge with Reach4theAlps.

I had a short 4 day break at Brown Bear in early April. We have been with RfA many times in the past and as usual all was excellent. Will and Claire were great hosts and the food was excellent. Transfers were efficient and well organised. Many thanks, Paul

Our party of 7 were joined by 6 other guests for a week of skiing organised through Reach4the Alps, staying at Brown Bear Lodge in Montriond. The chalet coped well with 13 adults - good sized rooms, ample seating and relaxing space and a decent outdoor hot tub made for a great environment. Ski equipment storage is also excellent. That...

Lovely family holiday in Montriond. Quick transfer from airport and greeted to the chalet. Claire, Will and Ollie were extremely helpful and couldn't have done more for us. Slope transfers were prompt in order for the Skiers not to miss their lessons and a free bus is also available to catch just a couple of minutes from the lodge. The...
