Had a fantastic time, mark and Harvey where very helpful and good fun! Which made the time we had so much better! The food was great with a range of different dishes to suit all of us! Would recommend!
This was my first skiing holiday and the first time I'd used a catered chalet. Mark and Harvey were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. They both made us all feel very welcome and helped with where to find things in the resort etc.
The food was fabulous, there is no way you could go hungry and I think we all but a few pounds on :) All the food is cooked from scratch with fresh ingredients. Mark truly is an amazing cook!!
The chalet is very close to a bus stop for the free bus to get you round the resort plus it's only 10 min walk away from one of the main chairlifts, The Diable. They supply a heated boot rack which is great for getting your boots dry and toasty for the next day.
The chalet rooms are warm and cosy plus the communal living room is comfy too.
If I were to return to Les a Deux Alps I'd certainly stay here again as I don't believe any other Chalet could possibly be better.
Chalet Ruby is a case study in hospitality at it's very best.
Host/chef/co-owner Mark is the consummate professional, we felt completely welcome from our arrival and no request was too big or too small for him. A professional chef, we were very well fed, from confit duck to roast lamb, homemade bread and creamy soups, plenty of green vegetables (often a rarity in ski resorts!) and some artery defying desserts, as well as seemingly limitless wine.
The chalet was conveniently located for the Diable ski lift, ski hire, bars and restaurants. The room was lovely, clean, warm, and had plenty of space. There's a big comfy sitting room with an open fire, and the whole chalet is nice and warm.
In addition to all this, the whole stay was extremely good value for money - you get a lot more than you pay for. I can't recommend Chalet Ruby highly enough - if you're going to Les Deux Alpes, this is where you should stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chalet Ruby - food cooked by Mark was plentiful and absolutely delicious. We found Mark to be exceptionally flexible in his approach to feeding the chalet and nothing was too much trouble. I think it is fairly typical to have cakes in the afternoon when you come back from skiing but Mark also made flapjacks and cookies to take up on the mountains with us - which was just superb!
The hot tub was a bonus to come back to and there was always plenty of hot water and the chalet was lovely and warm.
It's in a great location - very close to the ski rental shop (go to Schuss Twinner Sports) and to the lifts. You can leave your skis and boots in the boot room but we found it even easier to leave them at Twinner as it is even closer than the chalet to the lifts.
Unfortunately Harvey injured his shoulder during our stay but our son thought this was a very cool injury, given that he had acquired it whilst attempting a jump but also because it meant that he got more time to play on his Fifa game with Harvey! I should add that the wifi is good in the chalet.
All in all, a great trip and a lovely chalet. If I had to be critical - the only thing that I would say is that the bathrooms are quite pokey and I'd love to have had a bath. That said, you can't have it all!!
Thank you again Mark and Harvey - you are great hosts!
My first skiing trip in a long time, and my 11 year old son's first ever skiing holiday. We weren't disappointed, either by the skiing (great weather, plenty of snow, nice wide slopes) or by Chalet Ruby. Mark and Harvey were fantastic hosts, and Mark's cooking was outstanding. Great cooked breakfasts and fresh croissants, magnificent cakes, biscuits and brownies to have with tea on our return in the afternoons, and amazing dinners every evening, with plenty of wine.
The hot tub was properly hot, not luke warm like some I've experienced - great to relax in it in the snow at the end of the day. The chalet is a 5 minute walk to the Diable lift, and the free shuttle bas stops 20 meters away if you are going to/from one of the other lifts.
All in all a wonderful stay, and my thanks to Mark and Harvey for looking after us so well.
