- "Fabulous week in Meribel at Chalet L'Orgentil with the lovely Thomas as our host! Would recommend and use this company again. Host was fantastic, food delicious and the chalet very traditional and cosy with a stunning panoramic of Meribel valley. Missing it already" - Customer Feedback
- "Our group of four stayed in Chalet L’Orgentil from the 9th to the 16th of April 2016. There was a fall of snow just before we arrived so the skiing was better than we expected but it was the great hosting and food that really made it for us. Tom, our chalet host, was really friendly and polite and a brilliant cook. Every night he prepared delicious four-course dinners from scratch (with home-made canapés, and cheeseboards) - with as much house wine and beer as we could guzzle. And there were always extras if we fancied a bit more. The breakfasts were good too, with a full english on the Sunday. Chalet L’Orgentil was very comfortable and cozy, close to the ski lifts and great value for the price. We enjoyed sitting in the evenings having a beer, with the fireplace on and views out to the mountains. We got on very well with the other group too. Highly recommended - especially if you like great home-cooked food and friendly service." - Customer Feedback
