Connick Ski provides luxury catered ski holidays in the idyllic village of Chatel in the French Alps. Now in its 17th year of operation Connick has built an outstanding reputation for its level of service. Nestled on the French/Swiss border Chatel is a charming Savoyard farming village and forms part of the enormous Portes du Soleil ski area. With over 650km of piste spanning two countries this spectacular region ski is the largest linked ski area in the world and boasts an enviable and reliable snow record that keeps people returning year after year. The newly renovated, charmingly traditional chalet ‘La Chaumiere’ provides the backdrop for your stay. One of the oldest chalets in Chatel, it has been lovingly and sympathetically restored to provide luxurious yet authentic accommodation just 500m from the centre of the village. Our complete service ensures that your every need will be taken care of from the minute you step off the plane, allowing you to unwind and enjoy your holiday. Our unique in-house ski school caters for all levels and allows for intensive lessons or instructional guiding, whatever your level of ability or age. Your skiing will be taken to a new level – with no compromise on fun and spending time with your family or friends on the slopes. We look forward to welcoming you at La Chaumiere where skiing, comfort and attention to detail mingle perfectly with the relaxed family atmosphere.

The 3 generations had a wonderful time hosted by Dino and with Nick, a very experienced and wonderful instructor guiding. Weather was kind with new snow and we split into 2 groups, experienced and less so, with help from Wilkes, another excellent instructor which allowed a 7yr old and some of the rest of us less enthusiastic skiers to get off piste experience whilst the others were more adventurous in the varied and extensive snows of the Porte de Soleil The re-ranged chalet is of excellent quality with hot tub, sauna, games room and well positioned in Chatel. Brilliant holiday. we'll be back!

Having skied since the mid-eighties, I have flitted from resort to resort for over 30 years, rarely returning to any of them twice on the basis that there is always somewhere else to see. That was until I was introduced to Nick Taylor, the owner of Chalet La Chaumiere, and ski instructor/guide of extraordinary merit. Not only is the chalet bursting with homely character, but the time on the slopes throughout the Portes Du Soleil is always fantastic, regardless of the snow cover or weather. Being here is always like coming home, and I look forward to next year too!

This was our first visit to La Chaumiere, and we hope it won't be the only one. We travelled with a group of friends, some of whom had been to La Chaumiere many times before, and their recommendation certainly lived up to expectations. We had a wonderful week. The chalet has been beautifully renovated to a very high standard by Nick and is in such a lovely location. Each day, Deano prepared wonderful meals from breakfast, through to afternoon tea and then dinner (the cheese board was amazing - even catering for the fussy one of us who'll only eat Babybel !!!). We certainly were never left hungry. Nick gave our group three days of skiing lessons, and we have never experienced such personal and one-to-one attention. He was able to tailor anything to meet the extremely varying degrees of skiing capabilities (or, no capabilities in the case of some (well, one of us!!)). Nick is the most patient person and really does make you feel more confident. We all learnt a lot and improved over the week. Nick's passion, enthusiasm and knowledge for skiing, the slopes, Chatel and La Chaumiere really stand out and is why we so thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We certainly hope to return again. Thank you, Nick, Deano and the team!!

This was my 6th time at La Chaumiere. The chalet has now been refurbished, very cosy, very smart. Once again, Nick has managed to make the week very special, with a super service, great food (and lots of drinks!), great apres-ski cakes and comfortable stay. As soon as you arrive there, you do not have to worry, everything is planned for. Another great week and ready for my next stay.

Well what can we say! We were recommended this spot and what a gem it was! Nick and Dino were extremely accommodating and friendly! The accommodation is wonderful and despite not skiing on the last day - we had plenty to do in the games room! What makes a place is the little things like leaving brekky out for us on our early departure and staying up late for our late arrival! The is Nick, Dino and team! We will definitely be back!
