Outstanding holiday in every way

Really faultless service from the office staff. Great the way staff anticipated our every need e.g. getting ski hire done quickly and obtaining lift passes for us. Saved hours of time, when you are in a resort for the first time and don't know the ropes.

We had a self catering apartment at Bracun, because we are vegetarian and like to cook for ourselves as well as eating out.

We cannot speak highly enough of the team: Clare, Olivia, Peter and Henry. Welcoming, helpful, solicitous, tactful, warm and charming. Didn't seem at all phased by a party of superannuated crumblies like us!

Extremely well-chosen routes. As we were a small contingent outside the high season, the staff adapted readily, combining groups or adapting the itinerary to suit our age and stage.

Pete in the office booked us a private lesson at our request for 8.30 on the first day. I was sceptical that we would the manage all the logistics, but the staff made it all happen and the (excellent) refresher lesson with Wilma was done and dusted and we joined the main party at 10 for the day's activity.

Recommendation from a friend. Impressed from the first enquiry with Pete onwards. This holiday was a really outstanding holiday in every way. We have skied in Zermatt, Saas Fee, Tignes, Hintertux and lots of other places, but Alta Badia takes the biscuit.


Fantastic week at Haus Valentin in Badia, Dolomites. Great Chalet hosts, fantastic weather and good company (including Tom Collett and family!).

Fabulous walking holiday in beautiful Erhwald August 2019

My husband and I have returned from yet another fantastic holiday with Collett's. Outstanding location in Erhwald Austria. Colett's staff team were excellent in their local knowledge of walks and various other pursuits as well as ensuring all guests expectations were met. A fantastic team thank you Kate Ben Anna and Andy for the challenges laughs and stories. A massive thank you to the team at the Sonnenspitze Hotel who provided a first class service. We will be returning to Collett's next year.

Outstanding Winter Holiday

A fantastic holiday with excellent value for money!

John Bennett

Bracun was a great apartment. Marcus was very helpful, and the maid was very good. We liked the sauna, steam room too.

All the team were very helpful, friendly and welcoming.

We’d our own thing most of the time, but enjoyed ski days out with Sandy and Robin, and Julia enjoyed her snow-shoe day with Alex.


We have been walking in the Dolomites with Colletts, and we have also enjoyed many ski trips in the same area, so we thought we would try your offer in the area.

Thanks to all the team for our great holiday.

Ingrid Holmes

Very welcoming considering how late we arrived! Friendly and efficient staff and excellent cook. They made skiing without my family most enjoyable.

Nothing could’ve been better - Your staff were amazing this year. All of them.

David Giddons

Ski guiding was fantastic, staff were always available, knowledgeable and eager to help. The whole setup was conducive to a great atmosphere in the chalet and led to easy social interactions with other guests.

Judy Dadak
Repeat Customers

Clare, Bolton Ben and Ben were all excellent and we skied with each of them twice, they were a pleasure to be with and our holiday was made by them. We were lucky as the resort was very quiet and we had some of the slopes to ourselves! Everything was organised to suit us so we consider ourselves very lucky. Rob did our transfer which was excellent.

We are repeat customers - We have always found the staff to be excellent in the resort so you have definitely got it right with your recruitment!

David Wayne
Outstanding Holiday

I made a late enquiry. Your staff (esp Peter Critchlow) most helpfully found me a room in Chalet Gumina near to Haus Valentin, with access to the skiing programme and meals in HV.

Have travelled with Collett's several times before and know that I am likely to meet compatible people with whom I can ski - as I come out on my own. Also that the chalet/ski staff are always most pleasant and dedicated.

We have had one or two cancellations recently and subsequently we have the following offers in January, so if you fancy a week in the magical Dolomites – on skis or snowshoes – please browse the offers below or visit our late sale page.
