We have just returned from spending a fabulous Xmas at white stripe with friends. Our group of 9 included 4 children and we all had an amazing time and were catered for perfectly. Russ and Lucy, the chalet owners were lovely hosts and couldn’t do enough to make our stay a good one. They collected us from Bourg station so there was no stress getting to the chalet and Russ dropped us at the ski lifts every morning and picked us up within minutes of calling him when we were ready to go back to the chalet. On their day off they gave us clear instructions on bus timetables etc so we found it really easy, especially as the bus stop is right outside the chalet.
We enjoyed amazing 3 course meals every night prepared by Charlotte, who is the very experienced cook who my kids loved to bits :-). They went out of their way to cook food we would like and that the children would eat and they even made sure our Xmas lunch was just as we wanted with pigs in blankets and Christmas crackers! They prepared the children’s meals for 6.30 so we could get the younger ones to bed before we ate which was perfect for us. We had endless wine throughout the evening which wasn’t wasted on any of us 🙂
The chalet itself is located in a quiet area so no good if you want to walk to any kind of nightlife but as we had great food and the wine was flowing we didn’t feel the need to go out anyway. The chalet was lovely and warm all the time and sometimes a bit hot but that was our fault as we just had to make use of the lovely log burner.
Although we had a lack of snow, until the day we left when the biggest snowstorm hit the Alps, we still enjoyed a great holiday which was largely to do with our great hosts and their willingness to make us as happy as possible. Thanks to Russ and his snow tyres we made it back to Bourg through the blizzard and got our train home 🙂
Would highly recommend a stay at Whitestripe and we would love to go back again.
