"When you find somewhere like this there’s a huge temptation to keep it quiet."
"Location and access to ski lifts are great due to the fantastic shuttle bus service. The chalet was spacious yet cosy and the food would not be out of place in a top London restaurant – We will be back."
"We had an absolutely incredible time at Chalet Lucette and accompanying chalets next door with a big group of friends. Aside from the amazing week of skiing the chalet itself was fantastic – definitely the best I’ve ever stayed in."
"Chalet lovely; food superb;staff the very best; friendly and extremely helpful, a fine team."
"The staff provided us with a ‘tailored’ holiday and went out of their way to cope with us and our idiosyncrasies."
"Excellent! Spacious chalet with amazing views and very well equipped. The staff are cheerful and very helpful too."
"It was better than a Michelin star restaurant."
"Stayed here for the first time in February. Was one of the best weeks skiing I’ve ever had. The chalet was spacious and homely and the service was fantastic with great staff and amazing food. Will definitely be staying again. And the skiing was awesome. 5 stars."
"Happy staff. Happy customers. Simple method – works a treat. Top notch food once again – perfect portions, inventive but not ridiculous ingredients and well presented. Booked the next one already. Can’t wait."
"A truly perfect week. Beautiful chalet, very friendly staff, and brilliant food far surpassing prior expectations. Vaujany and the wider ski area catered for all levels, and being a high resort had great snow! Highly recommended."
"Excellent skiing quiet slopes and all abilities catered for. It’s difficult to find a better place for all the family."
"Off-piste ski opportunities were surprising and excellent. There was much more to the skiing than we expected."
"A wonderful family Christmas in a friendly ski resort in the most fantastic catered chalet."
"All of the staff we spoke to during the booking and our stay were excellent. Special mention has to go to Chris and Polly our chalet hosts as they were exceptional. The food was amazing and Polly just great with us and the kids loved her to bits."
"A special thanks must go to our chalet host Zoe and our chef Rory, who made our stay exceptional. The food was amazing and served with a smile (and a bottle or two of great wine). We will be back."
"Truly outstanding trip (maybe best ever) Your team were awesome from beginning to end. Thank you. Congrats on an excellent job!! Well done!!"
"What an incredible place, can’t believe its taken us so long to find Sainte Foy. The skiing was 1st class."
"Sainte Foy is such a pleasant change from the big, purpose built resorts we’ve skied in the past. I don’t think will go anywhere else now."
"The staff really looked after us well, accommodating any need without being intrusive. They were particularly good with the young children as well as my 17 year old who like me loved the chalet, its location and facilities. Well done to you all for a great service."
"Perfect resort, a hidden gem! Friendly staff who made the stay enjoyable. Food was exceptional. Best ski holiday ever!! Definitely coming back."

"Wow - just spent a fantastic 'Learn to sail' week with Sea-Trek at Lixouri on Kefalonia. Can't believe that after only three days expert tuition from Barry we were confidently sailing on our own in a 32 foot Bavaria. And squealing with delight as we hit 5 knots! We never believed this would be possible. Thanks Barry, Will and the rest of the Sea-Trek team - you were brilliant and gave us great confidence. And we earned our ICC and Competent Crew certificates too. We met some lovely people who we hope to keep in touch with and we'll almost certainly be back! Many thanks, Tim and Jenny Neill"
"Sea-Trek taught us to sail in 2001, when we were both in our late 50's. It was the most exhilarating, hair-raising and fun we have ever had, and we were bitten by the sailing bug! As a result of that, we have returned every year since, sometimes twice in a year, and enjoyed every trip as much as the first. They are a wonderfully supportive company, and have been unfailingly encouraging and helpful in our early years; we have brought endless friends with us, and it remains the highlight of my summer. I hope we have a few more years left to enjoy Kefalonia; I couldn't imagine a better place in which to learn to sail. Thanks, Jim, Suzy, and the whole team!"
"Thank-you Sea trek for a brilliant 4 days of water sports and fitness activities. I thoroughly enjoyed the mix of activities against a backdrop of a beautiful setting and sunny weather. Please do more of these weekends - both Sea-trek adventures and BlitzFitness make a cracking team."
"What a fantastic four days in beautiful Kefalonia! Started each day with a full on fitness session led by the awesome Blitz team, relaxed all day at the pool, on the beach or out on the water in dinghies, on windsurfers and paddle boards, then finished off with Pilates as the sun went down. Returned home tired but happy, we'll be back! Thanks Lara, Karen and Susy, you made it so special!"
