Thank-you for such a lovely week.  We’ve eaten some amazing food and been treated beautifully and thoughtfully.

Good lodge, good location, good whisky, good food, good skiing.  In brief, a beautiful holiday.  What a pleasure to find a lodge as unique as Le Lauvitel year after year, with Caroline who is always friendly and welcoming and a group of special friends.  Until next year – ‘You don’t change a winning team!’

Benoit et Catherine Kauffmann

Thank-you Caroline and Susan for your hospitality, your wonderful food and your kindness.  It was a pleasure for Louisan to have an ear infection here, able to enjoy the fire place and your nice dog.  Very nice setting and a wonderful atmosphere.  All the best for the future.

Thank-you Caroline.  My 70th birthday at Lauvitel Lodge was a total success.  The beautiful gardens, the fantastic kitchen that is so well equipped and your kindness very much contributed to the success of these few days.

Just made my first skiing experience all the more special.  What a wonderful place and the best food ever!  Spoilt rotten!

Claire Watkins and Anthony Gates

An ideal lodge to spend the holidays with friends;  close to the pistes but far from all the agitation.  A magnificent place, we will come again in summer to see the lake.  Caroline and Susan, we thank you for your hospitality and, once again, ‘bravo’ to the chef.

Famille Monnehay, Denis, Maria, Alicia, Mathew

Because shared moments are always stronger, because your lodge lends peace and tranquility.  Thank-you.  Until next year.

Caroline, thank-you for your welcome and your good energy during our brief stay.  Superb scenery, a place that is both calm and relaxing.  Until the next time and thank-you once again.

Thomas et Thibault

A week passed with you, Caroline and Susan, in this welcoming lodge that is so revitalizing.  We enjoyed all the week –  spoilt by the taste of so many different dishes, spoilt with the vision of so many flowers in the garden, and all accompanied by the smiles and laughs that resonated throughout the house.  […]

Yanis, Sebrina et Xavier Le Picard

Namaste!  We had a great time in this beautiful house.  Thank-you very much for the hospitality and the good spirit.  Best wishes for the New Year.

Laura G., Renard Family

… And when we had to leave to go on our way we were sad and unhappy but happily we were able to stay for 5 days with you.  This stay will not leave my mind – I will never forget it.  I hope we will dream of this.

Thomas Vallet et la famille Uzzan

Lauvitel Lodge is a magical place and ideal for a range activities from a relaxing getaway to and adventure trip. During my visit I got to experience both. Caroline is a wonderful host, the food is superb, and the location is stunning. Can’t wait to go back!

Kyle Newman, CEO, Beyond Companies

Merci Mille Fois!  We had a great family reunion – large part thanks to you and of course – what a view!
