Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Room was 100%clean and tidy. Nothing was broken all working perfectly. Facilities in the bathroom and the room was perfect very up market with designer shower gel and excellent shower. Around the Chalet the atmosphere was very chilled out and relaxed with a sauna and hot tub on site available for everyone to use. The chef Diano, and his food was spectacular and very adjustable to specific diets such as a lactose free diet. The ski guiding was superb loads of skiing and downtime also!

This month (January 2020) was my 3rd visit in the last 10 months. That says allot . I keep coming back because it really is a wonderful ski holiday . The chalet is authentic, cosy , warm, very comfortable and decorated in a traditional style with great taste.
The staff are extremely friendly and very accommodating. The food is abundant and the chef ( Dino) excellent . The ski tuition is outstanding, Nick Taylor the owner and one of the ski instructors is so passionate about teaching you to ski correctly . He is patient and technical about the process, so if you want to learn to ski the right way.; you need to come to La Chaumiere, My skiing abilities have improved dramatically as has my confidence on the slopes . Thanks to Nick and Kathryn .
Ski passes are organised for you as is almost everything else ; and as a (ski school chalet) you never have to wait in lift queues with the general public .
See you again in April 2020.

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!

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff at Connick Ski. The chalet has been refurbished and has a luxurious feel to it. The rooms were all extremely comfortable. The food and hospitality was excellent. Being taken to the slopes every day and been guided by the owner who is also a qualified ski instructor meant that we avoided the lift queues and found the quieter slopes. All in all a great holiday and have booked already for a return trip

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!!

Great week at Chalet Chaumiere/Connick Ski. Great service nothing too much trouble including lift drops and pick ups. Lovely traditional luxurious chalet. Loved the hot tub,
Sauna and games room. Perfect for our mixed group of kids aged 7-16 and all the adults! Good food and wine and cake!! Short walk to town and lifts or 10 min drive to Pres le Joux. To be honest could not be more perfect! Thank you Nick and Chaz!

We stayed in this beautiful, newly refurbished chalet in Chatel. The skiing was brilliant, taught and guided by Nick or Ross every day, at a level appropriate to our skills. And we got fed wonderful food, breakfast and dinner - dinner after a soak in a new outdoor hot tub on the balcony, watching the stars. A great fun week with some fantastic skiing.

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.

This is the second time we have stayed at La Chaumiere (Jan 2020 and 2023), and it was wonderful to be able to return again. The chalet is beautiful and excellently appointed. The service received from Nick, Kathryn and Chaz was second to none. The food and wines were delicious. The ski tuition was fantastic. Everything was catered for and thought of. It was a fabulous holiday - lots of skiing (and walking for those of us who don't ski) but also wonderfully relaxing too. The hot tub and sauna are a great addition.

Another great skiing week at Connick Ski. Thanks to Nick, Kathryn and Dino for making the week so enjoyable. I am always amazed what we manage to pack into a week due to Nick's knowledge of the terrain, and his tuition and guidance. I can't imagine there is a better skiing experience in the whole of the Portes du Soleil
