Chalet Rayon De Soleil Reviews

half term ski holiday = Kelseys & Peelings - 23/03/2015
Overall

Overall a great holiday. Luke was a very good chalet host, and the food was always fantastic. The chalet is a bit short on storage space and could benefit froma DVD player, but otherwise it was sound and well located for the piste. The strategy of bussing guests to a joint meeting place in Moutiers (to wait for other guests to join the coach from other resorts to save money) is tedious as it makes for long transfer days, so a private transfer otpion would appeal. I would suggest moving to Sunday transfers, much quieter and as they charter their flights they could easily do so in 2016.

Apres Ski: 3/5
Accommodation & Value: 4/5

Nice chalet, huge ski area... - 22/25/2015
Overall

We stayed in Rayon De Soleil in the second week of January and had a broadly good trip. The snow quality was mixed, there was almost no base-layer so despite a couple of bursts of fresh snow during the week, the piste conditions were variable. Val Thorens was broadly good due to its altitude, but the rest of the 3 Valleys were a mix of ice and rocks! Snow aside, the chalet is of a good standard, and Iglu/SkiWorld did a good job. The room sizes vary, Room 1 is good, 2 is relatively small. Our host did a good job and the food was solid all week. There's a 30m walk to/from the front door to a small skiable entry ramp onto the main area of lifts - very convenient and well positioned to get out on the mountain first thing. Overall, it's pretty much what you'd expect from this level of chalet, well placed in an immense and snow-sure resort, good for lots of thigh-burning kms and I'm sure in better seasons lots of terrain to explore. One small word of warning - our coach was the first out of town at 3:30am after fresh snow, and had an accident on poorly-ploughed roads. It ended without harm (with a 7 hour delay and lots of new grey hairs) but could have been very bad, so if you have an early transfer in fresh snow, check that the driver is taking the necessary precautions (chains, driving extra slowly)!
