Valerie was fantastic and we wouldn't hesitate to use her again if we come back to Les Menuires. It was the first time we'd left our daughter (8 months) with someone outside the family but she really liked Valerie and seemed very happy and settled with her. Valerie was excellent at keeping in touch with us as well so we knew our daughter was fine and being well looked after.

Julie was amazing. Our 2-year-old felt comfortable with her immediately. She was prompt, communicative, professional, and amazing with the children. She had lots of creative ideas of places to take them given her familiarity with the area, and she was willing to accommodate our son's specific schedule. She felt like one of the family and we were really able to relax knowing our son was in her care. We would definitely book Julie again. The ski nanny website was easy to use and Sylvie was super responsive as well. The service helped make our holiday amazing. - Jana, February 2020
"We were very satisfied with having Sylvie as a nanny for our children. Together with 2 other nannies Sylvie looked after 10 children, aged 1-8 years. We felt very comfortable leaving the children with her and we fast got the impression that they are in safe hands. She is very organized and quickly understood what each child's need and personality was. Sylvie was very active and played with the children in a nice way. She was also very flexible with the time and offered herself to look after them an evening although this wasn't booked in advance. We can highly and without hesitation recommend Sylvie as a nanny." - Carl, Chalet Floralie, Saint Martin de Belleville February 2016 + 2017+2018+2019+2020
" We hired Valerie and Barbara for the time we were there. I would like to express in words how fantastic they both were. They would score top in each of the categories below and we would book them again in a heartbeat!!!
From the word go they were attentive, caring and gave us real confidence to leave for the day. Without them our holiday wouldn't have been possible. They were excellent in every way.
Please pass this feedback on to them. When we return next year we wouldn't want to use any other nannies!!" - Andrew, Powder N Shine, Reberty, February 2020
" Thank you very much for your help in finding Barbara. We were very pleased to work with Barbara. She is a great nanny!
"Sylvie, for the second time we work together - it is a pleasure.
Michelle and Tamar were perfect! The kids were very happy. They arrived every day on time and immediately took the kids and let us go off.
Even though the chalet was in a distant place, the kids were not bored playing in and also got to play in the snow.
The kids were sad to say goodbye and so were us.
You were also available to us for questions and ideas - thank you for letting us have a great ski vacation."
"Sylvie, thank you very very much for this week!! You gave us peaceful time and we felt that our kids are in good hands 💕💕❤❤"

" Ne voulant pas laisser ma fille de 14 mois à la garderie pendant nos vacances au ski, nous avons fait appel à l'agence Ski Nanny Val Thorens pour trouver une solution de garde.
Nous avons eu deux supers nounous, très attentionnées et très douces avec notre petite fille. Elena a su s'occuper d'elle à la perfection : luge, jouer avec elle, lui préparer ses repas.
J'ai vraiment été ravie. Il ne fait aucun doute que nous repasserons par l'agence pour nos prochaines vacances !
Merci beaucoup !" - Marine, Janvier 2020
" We would highly recommend the services of Skinanny (Sylvie) and our Nanny Valarie. Valarie looked after two, 2 year olds for the week and she was extremely punctual, professional, flexible (insert positive adjectives at will!) and has a great way with the kids. They carryied out various activities during the week including snow free play, art crafts etc... The kids were extremely as ease in her presence and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Valarie..."

"Nous avons été très satisfaits de la baby-sitter, Karla, par l'intermédiaire de SkiNanny, très souriante, très agréable et tout s'est bien passé avec les enfants. Merci"
" Pour la semaine de Noël aux Ménuires, Céline a été super pour s' occuper des jeunes enfants ou bébés matin et après-midi avec douceur et savoir-faire, nous avons été ravis, cela a permis aux mamans de skier ou de se balader et cela a beaucoup contribué à la réussite de cette semaine familiale, un grand merci "
- Edith, Chalet Epervier , Les Menuires Janvier 2020+ Decembre 2017
"We couldn't have asked for a better nanny for our nearly nine month old, Michelle was flexible, reliable and full of energy. We will definitely be using Michelle again"
- Laura, January 2020
"Thank you so so much for everything. Pieter and Adriaan really enjoyed spending time with you Sylvie and you were brilliant with them. Hope to see you again in the future. Best wishes 🍩🍩💙💙 "
-Suzanne, January 2020 +January 2019 + March 2018
" We are always very impressed with your ski nannies.
We have now had four different nannies using skinannyvalthorens and each one has been truly excellent. We would happily rebook each one of them for the next occasion. All our children have enjoyed spending time with their nannies.
Barbara was a wonderful nanny to our 2 year old daughter for the week. They got on like a house on fire. Barbara had a lovely manner and a great sense of humour."

" Michelle was excellent, a wonderful nanny for our child who was upset when she left! They had great fun together whilst we were out skiing or just having a rest after all the daily activities.
" Michelle looked after our two young boys during Christmas week and was absolutely brilliant. They warmed to her straight away, settling into games, hide-and-seek and snow play really easily. She was very flexible and fitted into our busy chalet of 18 people very well. We would definitely recommend Michelle to any family coming to Val Thorens." Vicky, December 2019
" I just wanted to thank you for connecting us with Barbara, she was amazing with the girls from the start, and they were so excited when she arrived with all of her toys. It was so great that she had a child-based knowledge of the area, and took the girls to a soft play centre on some of the days - which they LOVED! She went out of her way to bring things that we had forgotten or hadn't thought of and was so flexible with timings.
Finding a good nanny is always one of the biggest things when we plan our ski holiday and you made the process so simple.
Cindy (who did a couple of evening babysitting sessions for us) was also great, on time, and really friendly. I felt at ease immediately when they both arrived and will definitely be recommending you to other friends, and no doubt I will be contacting you again in the future.
Willow still talks about Barbara now 3 months on!
Thank you so much for making our holiday as fun for the children as it was for us!

What a gem Sylvie is! Recommended by our chalet host- she was warm, friendly and very competent. My 7 and 5 year old had a great week with her and we were regularly updated throughout the day with pictures of the fun they were having off the slopes. Her English is perfect and the kids warmed to her within seconds of meeting her. I’d recommend her 100% and will not hesitate to use her a gain. Thank you Sylvie! -Sophie, Chardon bleu April 2018
Un grand merci à Barbara pour cette superbe semaine avec notre poupette. Tous les jours elle arrivait avec un nouveau jeu afin que notre départ soit plus doux. Pauline était ravie de voir arriver Barbara. Elle s'est adapté en fonction du temps afin que l'on en profite un max..... Encore merci à la douce Barbara. - Géraldine, Mars 2018
Je souhaitais vous remercier pour votre aide dans la recherche de nounou. Tout s est très bien passé avec Nataliya et Elena. Compétentes et douces. C était bien pour Noah d avoir aussi les soirées avec Nataliya. A refaire !
Je garde vos coordonnées!" -Virginie Mars 2018
Encore mille mercis pour les bons soins, Julian a passé une superbe semaine à la montagne grâce à Aurélie ! - Tine, Janvier 2018
" Given that it was our first holiday with our 11 month old son, and the first time we would be leaving him for more than one day at a time, we were quite nervous about having a nanny. But Carlotta was wonderful from the moment she arrived. She came early on the first day so that we could settle Henry with her while still getting to the lifts for 9am, and Henry immediately took to her - smiling and playing with her happily. She was flexible with her working hours, meaning we could make the most of the good weather, and she took Henry out and about twice a day so he had lots of stimulation and fresh air. She also sent me pictures of Henry throughout the day so I wouldn't worry about him. Our chalet hosts told us when she was in the chalet with him she was constantly talking to him and playing with him - I couldn't have been happier with how the week turned out. Thank you for providing such a lovely nanny!"
-Rebecca, January 2018
"We had a great time thank you, Lilli was excellent, could not have asked for more and we're very happy with the service and care we received." - Ross, december 2017
We were delighted with our experience with Sylvie, and are already trying to plan another holiday around her availability next year! She minded our 13m old for four days, also taking her 4y old brother in the afternoons and babysat some evenings when they were asleep so we really got time to enjoy a bit of grown-up time too. Sylvie was fantastic with the children and arrived every day with a big bag of tricks to keep them entertained. Would highly recommend Ski Nanny for any family with small children - Katherine, Mont Vallon, les Menuires , April 2017

"I can highly recommend Sylvie. My 2 year old daughter warmed to her immediately and did not even cry when we left for a day of skiing. Sylvie bought toys to the house knowing that we would not have many with us which I was very pleased about. She also knew the area and took my daughter for a play in the park and a walk outside, making sure she was dressed appropriately. I also recieved text messages without any prompting letting me know my daughter had a great lunch and was now sleeping. It made me enjoy my day on the slopes and I would not hesitate to book Sylvie again. " - Jodie, February 2016
