- "This is my second visit to the "pano" and I can honestly say you won't get any better. The chalet is based 2 minutes walk from the lift to the slopes and a 10 minute walk down the road to the Main Street with a few bars and restaurants. All bedrooms are very spacious and furnished to a very high standard. Meals are in the dining room where I must say you won't be disappointed. Food is fantastic and the wine pours freely. Watch out for the profiteroles challenge it's worth having a go. Dinner on the last night was 4 courses finished off with a nice glass of port. Relax in the spacious lounge for afternoon tea with home made delicious cakes and biscuits. After dinner you need go no further just relax in the lounge area with a glass of wine or bottle of beer." - Trip Advisor
- "Just got back from a brilliant week in this chalet, it was my first time staying with Ski Bonjour and will certainly be returning! Staff were exceptional at the Panoramique - food is great and Mark went above and beyond to make a birthday cake for one of our group!! The chalet is very comfortable with a large lounge area to relax in, as well as a second smaller upstairs lounge , and is clean throughout. The location is good, it is a short easy walk from an elevator which takes you down to the Sache ski lift, to avoid having to walk all the way down the hill with skis." - Trip Advisor
- "I recently stayed at Chalet Bonjour Panoramique with a crazy bunch of colleagues, and couldn’t have asked for a better time. The chalet itself was amazing, with spacious rooms and the staff were even better." - Trip Advisor
