Amelia was so welcoming and friendly from the very start - we arrived early but she helped with the cases and then made arrangements with Finton to take us to get our ski hire equipment and bring this back to the chalet. She was super friendly and helpful all week and great with the children. Equally, both Finton and Zac were amazing at ferrying into Chaudanne each day for ski school (and other one-off trips). Dainora was great as the resort manager and helped us with a very difficult situation when we had issues with our car. All in all, a really great service from SB from everyone we met and would highly recommend you to others and return to use you ourselves. THANK YOU!James Richards – April, 2022
