Our return visit with friends didn't disappoint. As always Lizzie and Paul were on hand to make our holiday wonderful. From booking our ski lessons, organising lift passes and even taking us skiing a couple of times. We were able to just relax and kick back. Extraordinary chef Emma went out of her way to accomodate all of our food...

Our group of 12 (adults & teen kids) stayed here 10 days in January 2017. I must say I'd just be repeating all the other good reviews by trying to list our experiences. Black Rock really is everything good that is said about it! This was a REAL holiday... all the "hard" stuff taken care of so we could focus...

As per usual Lizzy and Paul were the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. All locations are a short drive from BlackRock, unless you ski locally in Les Houches resort which is literally on the doorstep and offers a great variety of skiing for all levels.⛷ The team driver Ryan offers a quality, first class service...
