Chalet Furka Reviews
My family and I went to Lech the week after Easter. I'd skied in St Anton before (same Alberg region) and loved it but Lech surpassed it. The resort is classy and stunning. It's a vast ski area and all very convenient. There's a brilliant, regular free bus service which means other resorts are easy to get to. The ski over to St Anton and back is great fun. Zurs was a fab ski are too - again easy to access. I was a little worried being 'out in the sticks' in Chalet Furka but not at all. It's only about a 5 minute free bus ride into Lech which went every 20 minutes. The bus could be spotted on the way down from the terminus from the chalet so it was easy to time it perfectly. There was also a ski lift metres from the chalet. The chalet was small but very well appointed with a lovely sauna. The owner, who lived in, was a super chap and very personable. Dinner was great with good food and wine with plenty of chat and banter. Apres ski seemed to revolve around champagne (Moey and Veuve!) but it wasn't that pricey. There was plenty of good beer too. Champagne in Lech was cheaper than beer in Courcheval 1850! I'll definitely be back.
Apres Ski: 5/5
Accommodation & Value: 5/5
My daughter and I had a lovely holiday last week at Furka. The hosts Hannah and Craig were great, producing good food with a cheery smile. The chalet was really comfortable with an excellent shower in our room. Our only observations were that it was a shame the table arrangement was such that we could not easily move around to dine with other guests although the couple we spent the week sharing a table with were lovely. Additionally, a lounge area in the chalet would have been a welcome addition but I realise that the chalet build perhaps makes this difficult. We are not a fan of Ski World's recent change to 2 nights uncatered and this feeling seems to have been shared by others in our chalet- you can do better than this Ski World. Overall however a really enjoyable stay and fab snow!
Apres Ski: 3/5
