What our customers say
We are a family of 6 and James and Sinead at Sauzeonline.com were brilliant in organising skis, lessons and restaurants. Really helpful and friendly - a pleasure to deal with. We plan to come back next year using Sauzeonline for everything.
Just wanted to say that we had a great week and to thank you for all your assistance in arranging everything for us. Roll on next year!
Easy to use website and good prices. James was very helpful on the phone. Ski hire shop provided good and rapid service
Great service from James prior to arriving. Really went above and beyond. The rental shop was ideally situated at the bottom of the lift. Can't wait to return!
The transfers we booked were professional and hassle free notwithstanding our late arrival. For the return we were greeted on time with great service. The ski hire was also of excellent quality.
