Chalet Girl

I have to say, my favourite part of a skiing holiday isn't actually the skiing part. It's the bit where you come back to a warm chalet after a long day on the slopes, whack off those ski boots and retire into some cosy pyjamas while eating cake. I mean, that's pretty much how I'd like to live every day of my life! 

Most of my afternoons in Nendaz were spent curled up on the sofa, listening to Ed Sheeran's new album and taking a dip in the hot tub to relieve my extremely achy muscles. Most of the days of our trip it snowed quite heavily, and I often found myself making a hot chocolate and watching the silent snowflakes falling quietly onto the mountainside.

It was all pretty serene, but sadly I have to tell you the truth about our seemingly gorgeous chalet experience...

It almost saddens me that these photos are just so beautiful, but the real fact of the matter was that I really can't recommend this chalet, or booking through Ski World for that matter. As you can probably tell, the chalet was stunning. It was one of their luxury signature chalets (so as you can imagine, was more on the pricey side), and on the surface it looked absolutely beautiful. However, parts of our room were dirty, the chalet stuff were grumpy and rude and we came home to find that we were totally covered in bites. As confirmed by a doctor, they had bed bugs or fleas. I also wish I could say that Ski World were happy to sort this out, but after contacting them they told us they were aware of the problem the whole time and did nothing about it! They also offered a measly £150 refund. Um....what?! 

It's such a shame as it was a truly beautiful chalet and our holiday was fantastic, but I really wouldn't want to recommend you visiting this resort or booking through Ski World in case you had a similar experience. On a positive note, I did get some banging Instagram photos, so there's always a silver lining!
