Ski Breezy

Catered chalet accommodation in Chamonix, France

Ski Breezy is a fantastic catered chalet, run by warm and friendly hosts. Breezy and Alun have been welcoming guests to Chalet d’Ile for almost 10 years, enticing many back for a return visit with great cooking and hospitality.

Chalet d’Ile is a large yet cosy chalet, sleeping up to 10 guests in 4 bedrooms (2 double rooms, 1 twin room and 1 quadruple room). The lounge area features an open log fireplace and patio windows, which open out onto a large private garden with stunning views of Mont Blanc and the Aiguille du Midi. The garden is equipped with a BBQ and outdoor furniture for sunny days.

Accommodation is on a fully catered basis. This includes breakfast, afternoon tea and evening meal on 6 days of the week. Breakfast is a hearty affair of cereals, porridge, French baguette, butter, spreads, boiled eggs, orange juice, tea and coffee. Afternoon tea will be laid out for you, on your return from your day on the hill. Make yourself at home, put the kettle on and help yourself to some of Breezy’s legendary freshly baked cakes or biscuits, French baguette, butter and jam. Your 3 course evening meal will be freshly prepared and home-cooked and accompanied by plenty of wine. On the hosts’ one day off, breakfast will be self service and in the evening you will be able to sample one of the many restaurants in town. Breezy and Alun will be happy to offer advise based on what you like to eat and will even book a restaurant on your behalf.

Catherine (Breezy) Breese

I am from Yorkshire originally and after doing a Sports Studies Degree in Newcastle, I decided it was time to improve my skiing, so I decided that I would do one season. As with so many other people one season goes into another and another… I was lucky and worked for several tour operators in many resorts across France and Canada.

I spent 7 years working in ski resorts in the winter and travelling for the rest of the year. After doing one season in Chamonix, I realised that this was the place for me and so began Ski Breezy offering catered accommodation.

I managed to find the chalet in 2000 which was ideally suited for me, as it sleeps 10 people and with this size I knew I could easily run it on my own. Being from a Yorkshire family I have been brought up in a very sociable household, emphasis always on a warm welcome, plenty of excellent home cooking and flowing wine, which has helped in creating the atmosphere you will enjoy in my chalet.

I have always been very actively involved in all sports and outdoor activities. I still continue to be able to enjoy these activities and love skiing, ski touring, rock climbing, mountain biking, tennis and walking. More recently I married Al who I met in Chamonix. He is now my chief assistant in the chalet and like me he knows the Chamonix Valley extremely well.
