We had a fabulous 2 week holiday in the French Alps, the transport from airport to accommodation went smoothly and the accommodations were perfectly located. This was our 2nd holiday organised by Gilles at Top Snow and we highly recommend them .

Just got home from a fantastic holiday in Meribel. Gilles organised the transfers, lift tickets, ski hire and accommodation at The Hotel La Chaudanne. Everything was first class and worked like clockwork.

Hi Gilles, I can't thank you enough for organising our trip to Meribel in January, we had the most fabulous family ski trip and can't wait to plan the next one! The accomodation was absolutely outstanding and it was so easy having the ski hire under the building. I was particularly grateful for your expertise in organising everything from ski hire, lift tickets, trains and transfers, as it all ran seamlessly. Your local knowledge made all the difference to our trip, as little tips like upgrading to first class on the trains meant we had ticketed seats and a very comfortable journey. We will definitely be calling you for the next trip and I will recommend you to all of our friends if they want fantastic travel advice and friendly efficient service. Thanks Gilles!

Top Snow Travel organised our trip really well and the apartment at Les Arcs we stayed in was fantastic. This resort was excellent for poor skiers and black run snowboarders and skiers alike

Gilles organised a fabulous trip for our family to Avoriaz in January 2020, including transfers, accommodation, lessons and ski passes. He saved us a huge amount of time in recommending everything, taking into account what we needed (e.g. a good place for beginner skiers, lessons in French for our kids). We also did a cost comparison and it seemed to be cheaper than if we had booked everything ourselves. We will be back for another trip next year!

Communication with Gilles at Top Snow Travel was excellent. His knowledge of the French Alps helped us to decide where and when to ski and then our particular needs were accommodated for. Thank you for coordinating a stress free and memorable ski holiday

Top Snow are great a providing advice to first time skiers and I was so glad I took their recommendation and booked a resort located higher in the Alps to be sure we got proper snow. The accommodation and resort recommended was also great and we had a great one week stay over Christmas 2019. I will certainly use Top Snows services again now my teenage boys love skiing!!

It had been a number of years since we skied in France and felt comfortable organising our recent trip to Val Thorens through Top Snow. Gilles was helpful and friendly in our communications and gave excellent advice. All the arrangements went seamlessly from our private transfer from the train station right through to collecting our lift passes, ski hire and registering the children for ski school. Our accommodation at Residence Oxalys was perfect for us; ski in/out, well appointed rooms, modern bathrooms and a kitchenette. The daily bakery delivery for breakfast was fabulous. A shout out also to the staff at Oxalys, everyone was polite and so helpful; Sandrine in particular. Thank you Gilles and Top Snow, such a fabulous holiday.

Don't look anywhere else to book your snow travel! I was in charge of organising three families (including my own) for a ski holiday in France. Having some family in the UK, I was recommended a number of UK companies. I became overwhelmed with the information and the hard push to sell me the holiday asap through these companies. By accident I came across Top Snow Travel and contacted Gilles and his team. I was asked a few questions about who is in the party, exactly what we intend to do and what we wanted from a resort. We were recommended Avoriaz which all the other companies told was out of my price range. It was smooth sailing from there. We could pay in two instalments which included everything from ski pass' and equipment to transfers and accommodation. Gilles and his team were in constant communication including wishing me safe travels just before our travels and check up when we returned. The top selling points for me was I could pay in AUD and contact them in local time. I highly recommend Top Snow Travel who are now my snow travel agents for all future ski holidays for my family and I. Thank you Gilles and Team! x

We deeply appreciate all the help offered to us by Gilles from Top Snow Travel. From the outset, we were provided with exceptional service, excellent suggestions about travel and accommodation options and welcome advice about how best to fully embrace the experience of staying in a French ski resort . This level of support ensured that our much-anticipated holiday unfolded smoothly and even when we encountered travel hiccups due to the transport strikes in France, without hesitation or delay, we received timely assistance. Val d’Isere as a ski resort was amazing, and we were most fortunate with the amount of snow which only added to the experience ! The village is enchanting – a magical winter wonderland. Equally, the dining options on and off the mountain were superb and bounteous. Suffice to say, we ate extremely well! We will cherish our 2019 ski holiday in the French Alps and attribute its success to the guidance of Gilles and the team at Top Snow Travel. Thank you so much.

Chalet Or Blanc was everything we hoped for and so much more! The Chalet itself was so beautiful; great position with a stunning view and such a beautifully finished space. As for the the staff... they really made the experience!! Nothing was a problem, they were all so obliging and helpful, and Angelique's breakfasts... amazing!! We loved every minute of our stay.
