    Thanks so much for a brilliant ‘non-skiing skiing holiday’. You were so considerate to our needs as well as those of the skiers. The recommended walks, cafes, views were all superb. Thank you so much for the fantastic hospitality and 5 star food which was much appreciated. We will be thinking of you all and the beautiful scenery from back in the rainy UK.

    After numerous months of planning this special event (Nick’s 50th) we were lucky enough to be able to join Mark, Michelle and Emma in St Nicolas and from our arrival we were treated to the highest levels and warmth from Michelle’s cooking to Mark’s patience on the slopes and Emma contributing to making this an excellent stay. Hope to join you all again in the future. Thanks again.

    Our thanks for a most enjoyable week. The ski accompaniment was much appreciated. The excellent catering and the genuine host service were especially welcome and much appreciated. Michelle and Mark, you should be very proud of what you have achieved and the guests should be very pleased with the experienced, professional, polished and efficient service.

    Garry, Theresa, Michelle, Lauren and William. December 2011.

    The true value of having a ski guide like Mark was perfectly illustrated when New Year’s Day became the best day’s skiing we had ever experienced. Covering 40 kms of the mountain range in brilliant sunshine with a perfect variety of slopes and views. We could never have achieved such a day without Mark’s guidance. Michelle and Emma have been perfect hosts with fabulous cooking, great company and just the right level of involvement. Many thanks indeed.

    Martyn, Lucy, Paddy and Freddie. December 2011.

The toboggan run was great fun too. See you next year.

    Louise, Pete and Mae. December 2011.

    Mark, Michelle and Emma. Thank you so much for a fantastic and eye opening holiday. I leave you being able to ski after coming here not even knowing how to put skis on. Meals, hospitality and everything were all 5 star. Can’t wait to come back next year. You have us all hooked!

Thank you Mark for making sure that we never had to carry our skis or indeed walk more then 50ft in our ski boots. You have built a beautiful chalet which with the expert culinary skills of Michelle and Jacqi you deserve to be a great success. You really cared for us.

  • Stuart, Nicole, Will, Oli and Alex Wilson. January 2011

    A perfect few days spent in the exceptional company of Mark, Michelle and Tripod! The chalet was great in every respect and the food was as good as any top London hotel.

What very kind people with such a beautiful chalet – 7 stars all round.

  • Sean, Helene, Tara and Ceri. January 2011

    Where do I start? I am not normally lost for words but words fail as the experience that we have just had was truly amazing. The food was a culinary rollercoaster with every meal.

All in all a perfect end to 2010 and a fab start to 2011. Superb all round.

    Never trust a ski guide who wears full body armour, head protection and ribbons on his skis. We did and it was awesome!!! Thank you Michelle for the fab food. The best chalet we have ever stayed in.

  • Thank you so much for a brilliant holiday. The chalet is absolutely stunning and the beds are so comfy. The skiing was brill, thank you so much for helping us improve Mark. Both of you made us feel so welcome and Michelle your cooking is divine. Definitely will be coming back!
    Sophie and Michael. January 2009

  • Donna. December 2008.

    Fantastic holiday, best I have possibly ever been on! Will definitely be coming back to this gorgeous chalet and Michelle's lovely cakes. The nicest, loveliest, prettiest most homely chalet ever with the best staff/owners around. Mark and Michelle you are genuinely such nice people and have made our holiday so good.
    Kerry and James. January 2009.

    An amazing haven providing a special retreat. You have been the best hosts and I couldn't think of a better way to spend the New Year. Thank you so much. I can't wait to come back. Great food, lovely people and fab experience.

  • Frazer and Olivia. December 2008

    Fab fab fab. Thank you for letting my family and I enjoy your chalet. Excellent hosts, food and accommodation. Very best of luck for 2009. Sadie,

    Thank you so much for a completely wonderful stay over the Christmas. The chalet is beautiful, the food and wines excellent and yourselves as hosts and guides went well beyond our expectations.

    • Chris and Alison Wilson owners of the Balmer Lawn Hotel, Brockenhurst, New Forest.

      I may not be the best skier in the world, but I love it! Without doubt Mark and Michelle offer something truly unique – Mark's passion for skiing is infectious whatever your level or age. We have been lucky enough to ski in some of the best resorts in Europe and Canada, but we have been back to Mark and Michelle's three times since they first opened for business, my fourth trip is already booked! The chalet is beautiful and well appointed and kept in top order by Michelle, a brilliant cook as well, ensures you will never go hungry. The Bar a short walk up the hill is like going back in time (in a good way). Don't be put off because this is not a "ski-in ski-out" proposition – Mark knows the mountains like the back of his hand and he takes you to the most suitable location for your ability and the given conditions. "Don't suffer the rest when you can have the Best".

      We have three Kids – Polly 13, Henry 12 , Amy 10, they all love Mark and how his little challenges stretch their ability but in a very safe way, skiing is always fun for kids but skiing with Mark is "Brilliant" sorry "Awesome"!!!!

    • The Davey Family.

      True Alpine is a true 5 Star skiing experience. Mark exudes enthusiasm and passion as both a guide and ski instructor. He has taught our three children to ski and they now say they prefer snow holidays to the sun…! The chalet is immaculate with an ‘alpine boutique’ feel to it. Michelle is an exceptionally talented host and her cooking is EXQUISITE! Flumet has so many resorts to choose from and you are always assured of snow. We love it so much that this season will be our third year with them….and long may they have space to accommodate us! 

      Thank you Mark and Michelle!

    • The Cherry family.

      True Alpine in the Espace Diamant has been a wonderful discovery. It's tempting to keep the picturesque scenery, the varied yet quite runs and superb snow a secret, but having enjoyed two brilliant holidays we feel we must share this fabulous experience. Mark and Michelle are prefect hosts for whom nothing is too much trouble. Whilst Michelle ensures your stay at True Alpine will be unforgettable, Mark is busy offering a Ski Companion service. He escorts you through the magnificent mountains and makes sure you get the very best out of your day, regardless of your skiing ability. Just when you thought your day could not get any better it's topped by a splendid evening meal in their luxurious chalet. Perfect.

    • Denis & Jackie

      We have spent many weeks in Megeve and often looked over the valley to the nearby resorts and wondered… Two years ago we took the plunge and are now sold on the area. This is due in no small part to True Alpine with their fantastic chalet and hosts Mark and Michelle. Michelle’s food is superb and Marks guiding a revelation. Megeve is not busy outside the holiday period but seems as busy as the 3-valleys compared to the Espace Diamant. We have skied in many resorts in Europe and Canada but True Alpine is a place we will always try and come back to.

    • Nigel. 

      I have skied in many of the well known larger ski resorts in Europe and the United States over many years and I was surprised at the diversity and extent of the Espace The area is much under used and under rated and Mark as "Ski Companion” is able to find many challenging runs both on and off piste to suite all abilities. At the end of the day returning to the very luxurious chalet with afternoon tea and a fantastic evening meal to look forward to makes for a very complete package

    • The Gillam family from East Grinstead.

      The beautiful Chalet Les Colombes is the perfect setting for any family to enjoy a skiing holiday in a truly lovely setting.  The chalet is tastefully decorated to the highest of standards – everything has been thought out so carefully to ensure that everyone enjoys the most comfortable of surroundings.

      Michelle, Mark and their staff are the most perfect hosts.  It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced skier or a complete novice.  Everyone in our party made progress and felt that they had really achieved new skills during their stay at St. Nicolas La Chapelle.

      On our daily return from the slopes, we all enjoyed another tasty cake that Michelle had baked during our absence.

      Our family became part of Mark and Michelle’s family when we all sat down to a wonderful three course meal with fine wines in the evenings.  A perfect end to a perfect day!

      We would thoroughly recommend that you visit the Chalet Les Colombes.  You will not be disappointed and you will come away feeling that you had really had a truly fantastic experience.

    • Thank you Mark, Michelle and Emma. I really enjoyed your food. You always make me feel at home and the skiing was amazing. You are all very nice. Thank you for looking after me on the slopes. I absolutely love your brilliant chalet.
