Reviews and Comments from our Guests

Sophie – Salisbury Wiltshire 2014

If Carlsberg made chalets, this would be it!! The accommodation can’t be faulted nor could the food, booze or the company! Joel and Siobhan can not be bettered as tip top chalet hosts – total cooking and entertaining super stars! The best ski trip EVER – faultless.

Tom & Lamorna – London 2014

Top week in such a beautiful and comfortable chalet. Joel and Siobhan are without doubt the best chalet hosts we have ever had. The food has been wonderful and they have been such fun! Apologies for Tom breaking the chair! Enjoy the rest of the season!

Shauna and Alaister – London 2014

Thank you for a totally fantastic week. Your hospitality has been second to none. Joel and Siobhan put on an amazing birthday party for Ali (raised the game – I’m in trouble next year!). Without a doubt Mountain Spaces will become a fixture in our calendar each year!

Lauren and Matt – London 2014

An incredible week in Morzine, could not have asked for more! Siobhan and Joel have been the best hosts we could ask for – a pleasure to spend the week with them. The chalet has been a complete luxury and we will be asking for the delicious recipes. Thanks for a great week!

Lucinda and John – London 2014

Best holiday ever! Loved the chalet, company and the resort. Joel and Siobhan were amazing hosts and the food was amazing – best we’ve had! Would definitely come back, enjoyed it all!

Absolutely fantastic holiday. Great people and amazing chalet. The food was out of this world and cakes are hard to top! We really were looked after by Joel and Siobhan and can’t thank them enough! We will be back next year!

Lisa, Chris, Sierra & Isabel – Florida USA 2014

As a family from Orlando Florida, we were very excited to ski for the first time. What a better place than the French Alps?! We were so impressed when Joel and Siobhan stayed up late to welcome us at the chalet. The chalet is absolutely gorgeous and the beds are so comfortable. We are so pleased we picked Mountain Spaces as our stop in the mountains.

Jordan and Liam, Jenna – Essex 2014

Absolutely fantastic week skiing. It was a shame about the snow but Siobhan and Joel made us feel right at home! Definitely need the lemon dessert recipe and need to know the secret to the lemon broccoli!

Thank you for such a wonderful visit. My first chalet experience, the next one can surely never match the amazing week we’ve enjoyed. Hosted to perfection daily!

Where shall we begin?… You have been so fantastic, looking after us, preparing delicious food, being so welcoming and not least putting up with our evening antics!  Chris, our day of guided skiing was superb; you took us on great runs and knew a good place to stop for lunch.

Russell & Vanessa – Ealing 2014

I arrived on my birthday and things got better and better!  Joel and Siobhan looked after us and our two children (and our daughters boyfriend) admirably!  Nothing was too much trouble – the chalet was kept spotless and the food was excellent.  I would definitely return for another ski holiday.  Thank you very much!

Rachel, Liam and Nick  – Largs, Scotland 2014

Mountain Spaces is a very special find. Kate’s communication and help from the start was excellent. On arrival, a lovely welcome from Siobhan and Joel. The week has exceeded expectations and Siobhan and Joel were so helpful with Liam’s kids meals and struck the balance of friendlieness and professionalism just right! The chalet is beautiful and the hot tub a welcome sight at the end of a day boarding. We are in no doubt we will be back next year, though having dieted for the year as the food was just so good, especially the duck and chocolate tear drops! Thanks for everything. Ps – Thanks to Chris for clearing the steps.

Tom Surman – Berkshire 2014

The week started with a warm welcome from Kate, Joel and Siobhan, and a tour around the fantastic chalet.  Having an exhausting day boarding and being able to come back to delicious meals and the hot tub made for a perfect holiday (despite the injuries)!  Many many thanks Joel and Siobhan. I’ll be back for the duck!  Two thumbs up!

Shauna & Peter – Feltham Middlesex 2014

We’ve all felt like the imposters the whole week staying in such a 5* place and were convinced we got dropped off at the wrong chalet! The food and special touches have made it such a memorable holiday and I’m sure we’ll never forget snowboarding in Morzine. Joel and Siobhan have been amazing hosts, incredible food and attention to detail with every dish and being so chatty, amenable, friendly, professional, social and so many other amazing adjectives! I just personally like how they’re able to quietly endeavour away in the background but still contribute to the great atmosphere. Credit to Mountain Spaces!

Adam Smith – Reading 2014

The biggest compliment I can give is that I haven’t at all missed the many and varied luxuries of our everyday life aboard my yacht! Top hosts (Joel and Siobhan), ace chalet, mad props!

Roxanne and Tom – Leicestershire 2014

Fantastic chalet, would definitely recommend to friends and family! We have had a lovely holiday, Joel and Siobhan have been fabulous! Thank you!

Suzi Wong & Greth Baggot – Leicestershire 2014

An absolute wonderful winter holiday. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Facilities are amazing, food divine and as for hospitality I am beyond words, Joel and Siobhan have been wonderful, helpful, attentive and very warm personalities. Would most definitely recommend to all! Many Thanks!

A really ‘grand merci’ for taking care of us so well. We’ve had a fantastic week. Five star food, five star accommodation, five star service and five star snow and weather! Hope to see you again soon!


You are the best! We loved the chalet and your amazing hospitality. See you again soon!!

Mor, Rami, Dor, Omri & Roni (Israel)

What a fantastic chalet – first class hospitality and food, comfortable and great fun. Highly recommended! See you again.

Johnny and Tom

Thank you for making our stay in Morzine an unforgettable experience. The accommodation was excellent, the hot tub was just what was needed after a hard days skiing and the food … highlight of the day was excitedly reading the menu board on coming back from the slopes. Thank you for being wonderful hosts.

Gerry and the Irish Doctors

Marvellous stay with you. Thank you for looking after us all so well. The whole experience has been fantastic, the delicious meals revived us after the rigours of a days skiing.

Jill – Inspired to Ski Course

Thank you so much for all your help and for making our weekend such a sucess. The chalet is fantastic and you have been so helpful. We will definately recommend you!

A fantastic holiday! The skiing was great, probably the best ever. We all agree the chalet was perfect. A lovely group of people. Chris & Kate you are the perfect hosts! Hope we can all come back some day.

Dave, Teresa, Helen, Neill and Steve

You are the best Kate & Chris! Wonderful time with you and fantastic cooking! Thanks for looking after us. A Week of sunshine with new friends in the mountains, could hardly ask for more.

Jeff & Becky (Zurich)

Thank you for a great holiday Chris and Kate! The food has been spot on, never been so full (and extremely tasty of course!) Thank you for accommodating our travel and sleeping arrangements, great job! PS already missing the ‘disco’ jacuzzi.

Louise, Nick, Carol, John, Sharon, Claire and Alice – Southampton 2014

Thank you so much for being outstanding hosts! You have made us feel so welcome and at home here. The food has been amazing! And we loved the ‘egg of the day’! The chalet is gorgeous! Looks exactly as described on the website, would definitely recommend. Don’t want to go home! We will be back for another winter wonderland holiday here soon. It won’t be the same without Joel and Siobhan though. Thank you again for all your hard work and for looking after us so well.

Cowley and James families – Glasgow and Kent 2014

5* service from a 5* couple, Siobhan and Joel, the perfect hosts for our week to celebrate Ron’s 70th – everything went superbly and we asked ourselves, why eat out when the standard at the chalet is so high? The accommodation, both personal and communal allowed us all to be ourselves, the kids could be boisterous, grown ups too, though later at night! All in all a week of fun and life experiences. Thanks again chaps!

The Busk-Cowley’s – Kent 2014

Thanks guys, the food was amazing and your help much appreciated. Enjoy the rest of your season!

Scanlan, O’Driscoll and Newman families – Surrey 2014

This is our second trip to this chalet and it won’t be our last. Hosts are beyond fabulous (thank you Siobhan and Joel) and Kate and Chris are as always helpful and lovely. A real treat of a holiday and as our children say ‘can we stay here forever?’

My first time here but won’t be my last. Hope to bring the other half here next time! Huge thanks to Siobhan and Joel for the wonderful hospitality and warm service. Lyz xx

Everinghams, Wagstaffs and Chadbones – Oxfordshire 2013

Had a great stay. The chalet was very comfortable and well equipped. We lost a day due to the weather but the closeness to the town and the great facilities made the day fly by. Siobhan and Joel were great hosts, the food was superb and we had everything we needed. We would definitely come again!

 Jasmine  – Oxfordshire 2013

I had a wonderful week in the chalet, and the fact that we could ski to the door was brilliant after a long day. Joel and Siobhan obviously know what we like to eat because every night us kids had a plateful of goodness. Overall I had the best skiing holiday ever!

Chadbones – Oxfordshire 2014

We have had a wonderful week in Morzine, thank you Joel and Siobhan. The attention to detail and the wonderful food has been amazing and we couldn’t ask for more.

Thanks Joel and Siobhan, you were great hosts, very welcoming and great cooks! It was definitely the best chalet we have ever been to! I adored the hot tub and the sauna. Thanks again (I wish we could stay forever!)

Roger, Melanie, Josh & Lucy – Jersery 2014

Wow! I don’t know where to start! Thank you for making our holiday so special. The chalet exceeded expectations and has just been perfect for 3 separate families. The location to the ski lifts is just perfect. Thank you Kate and Chris for being so approachable and a huge huge thank you for ensuring our holiday was perfect. Finally, the biggest thank you has to go to Joel and Siobhan – attentive, professional and just wonderfully warm and good fun! The food was absolutely exceptional and attention to detail was much appreciated. We are sorry to be going home. Thank you!

Andrew, Lindsey, Elizabeth and Charlotte  – Jersey 2014

An amazing week! We have loved every second! The rooms are gorgeous and the girls loved the games room. Thank you Joel and Siobhan for everything you have done for us. This is easily  the best chalet we have every stayed in, the location is brilliant and we even skied back to the chalet every evening – a real bonus! Gorgeous food, have got some great ideas but feel like I never want to cook again. Can we live here! Thank you – just fantastic!

Simon, Shelley, Thomas and Ella – Jersey

Awesome holiday! Adults and kids have just had a blast! The chalet is beautiful and Kate has done a superb job of the decor, even down to the crockery! Food has been fabulous. Joel and Siobhan are amazing hosts and have made our holiday so special. They have been great with the kids and the children have loved the food, especially the cakes! Kate and Chris were so helpful and friendly throughout the booking process and were very accommodating. We don’t want to go home and will most certainly be back in the future, though it won’t be the same without Joel and Siobhan! Thanks so much for everything.

Thank you for a superb week. We all managed to relax in our own way. Food has been fantastic. Cheese of the day, egg of the day, Joel and Siobhan have done you proud. Service of the highest level, no issue too difficult to give some guidance on. And what a beautiful chalet, it will be hard to match. Thank you again, we go home relaxed and refreshed.
