About Mike Knowles

Grew up in Wales near Snowdonia. Hence the name for the chalet. Now live in London, but wish I was in the mountains.

Mike Knowles purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Mike Knowles chose Preyerand

I loved the location, so near the piste and large enough to have everyone around. Also it was a bit of a wreck when I bought it and I have enjoyed turning it into something special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear M. Knowles,

We would like to send you a few words after the splendid week we have passed in Les Menuires.



We had a warm welcome by Kris and Kirsten, the chalet was ‘fully’ equipped and clean, the rooms were fine, there was enough hot water when taking showers, the balcony was sunny and offers a great view … we enjoyed it very much. If we have to say something negative, the only thing I can come up with is the fact that the pan in the kitchen were already very ’used’.



Thank you for the offering of your chalet and maybe we will be back next year.



Yours sincerely,



Marleen and Guy and family and friends

Chalet Snowdon April 2014

  • 5 out of 5
The chalet is beautiful - spacious, comfortable and extremely well equipped. The living area on the first floor is ideal for a large group, or 2-3 families. There are plenty of bedrooms and almost each one has its own en suite (fitted superbly)It was warm, cosy with lovely mountain views. We took our car. so access to free parking adjacent to the ski lifts was possible, making it easy to make the most of the fabulous and huge 3 valley ski region.It was clean and the chalet manager was friendly and helpful. I would recommend very highly and would love to return.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in Chalet Snowdon in early Dec 2012 after a huge dump of snow. I think it was the first week the resort was open and there was no-one around. It was the first time the powder wasn't tracked out at the end of the first day.
The chalet was superb. We didn't have any kids with us, but we still used the wii and table football every night. We ate in most nights and the kitchen was modern and well equipped.
The location was great, less than 5 mins walk to the piste and (when we went the right way) we could easily get to our 9am lessons.
Would highly recommend the chalet, very well appointed.
Thanks.

Great chalet and fantastic snow

  • 4 out of 5
Ok I will caveat my review by saying that we had fantastic snow. It was so good that we could ski down a steep bank in front of the chalet to get to the piste and avoid the walk altogether. Obviously when the snow was so good it does make any review better, had it been lashing down with rain and we sat in playing cards, we would have probably more negative points.

But starting with the negatives, we had 14 adults and the chalet was a bit of a squeeze particularly in the evening when we were all in the lounge area. The agent said that the owner was planning to take out a bedroom to make the lounge area bigger and that would certainly make a big difference. The bedrooms are small too, but the storage was good and they were nearly all en-suite.

So the positives. The location was good, we had some beginners and they got the navette (small minibus) from just across the road to the town centre for their ski lessons. We didn't take it at all and just skied to and from the chalet. The ski area was phenomenal, within a couple of lifts we were skiing down to Meribel or Val Thorens. Didn't get over to Courcheval, just too much to do.

The kitchen is modern, although cooking for 14 was interesting, a woman can only take so much spag bol. We ate out half the time and had takeaway pizza from just up the road, so much easier. Plenty to do in the chalet, it had a DVD player with loads of DVDs and a Wii and some board games.

Les Menuires centre is ahem an architectural eyesore, but the area where the chalet is definitely a lot prettier.

We had hire cars and there was loads of parking so that wasn't a problem.

So would I go back, defintiely, but not in a group of 14.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your response. In the summer of 2012 we removed a bedroom to provide a much larger living area and added a host of extras to make the chalet much more comfortable. I notice that you have booked again for this season, so thanks for your repeat business.

Les Menuires is situated at 1850 and is well located within the Three Valleys ski area. Chalet Snowdon is in the picturesque Hameau des Marmottes, a development of recently built chalets. There are far reaching views of valleys and mountains. There are several ski runs and lifts nearby and the closest piste is approximately 100m from the chalet. In the summer the tennis centre of Les Menuires is also close to the chalet.

Ski: The chalet is situated at 1800m and is a 100m walk from the nearest slope where you can connect into the 3 valleys ski area. It is also 20m from the stop for the frequent free ski-bus where you can get right into the centre of Les Menuires, which is really handy for getting to lessons, lift passes, etc.

The 3 valleys ski area is the largest ski area in the world. The Les Menuires section itself gives a large amount of skiing in its own right and you can be skiing down into either Meribel or Val Thorens after taking just one lift from the centre of Les Menuires.
