Food is a feature of any ski holiday and these chalets set very high standards for their cuisine. With a hearty breakfast to kick start your day, a delicious afternoon tea waiting for you on your return from the slopes, and delicious evening meal with a choice of complimentary wines and coffee 6 days per week all included, our chalets offer outstanding value for skiers.
COME DINE WITH US
Your hosts will cook you a three-course adult only meal six nights a week in your chalet. Consisting of an appetiser, main course and dessert – with unlimited complimentary red, white and rosé wine during service! The staff nights off are a great opportunity to experience some local restaurants and cuisine. Speak to your resort representative for recommendations and help with reservations.
(On your Host’s day off each week, they will leave a simpler continental breakfast out for you to help yourselves, there is no afternoon tea that day, and you can dine out locally in the evening. Your Resort Representative will gladly help out with information and make a reservation for you if you wish.)
A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so the team provide both a hot option, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. On the staff’s day(s) off, only the continental breakfast will be provided.
The traditional ‘welcome home’ after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet, ready for your return, every day except on the staff’s day(s) off. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready.
CHILDREN’S HIGH TEA
In chalets with family guests, High Tea provides children under 11 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children’s tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.
We serve a separate High Tea at 5:30pm for children aged 10 years and under, featuring a more child-friendly menu. It is not possible for children aged 10 years and under to eat at the adult sitting. However, where children aged 10 years and under are part of an ‘exclusive use’ whole-chalet booking, parents may elect for their children to eat with them at the adult meal times on payment of a £39 per child per week supplement.
Evening meals in the chalets have 3 courses.
CHALET DAY OFF SUPPER OFFER
Guests who have booked a chalet for exclusive use in France can take advantage of our ‘Cook Your Own Suppers’ option on the staff nights off.
VEGETARIAN AND SPECIAL DIETS
Vegetarian options are always on our buffet menu in the Chalet Hotels and are available in our other properties – just advise us at time of bookings so that we can ensure that the staff can prepare. Other special diets can generally be catered for at a cost of £35 per person per week. Any dietary requirements must be advised to us at the time of booking in order for us to be fully prepared and see paragraph 15(c) of the booking conditions for important details. Our Chalet Hosts will discuss your dietary requirements with you upon arrival to the Chalet or Chalet Hotel.
CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR
All of the Chalets will serve a traditional Christmas dinner with a glass of Champagne to start off the evening. This will include roast turkey with all of the trimmings, Christmas pudding, mince pies, crackers and party hats plus a fantastic Alpine atmosphere in which to enjoy the day.
A special festive menu will also be served on New Year’s Eve, alongside the added bonus that many resorts put on fantastic firework displays. A glass of fizz, whilst watching fireworks over the snow-capped peaks of the Alps.. what better way to bring in the New Year!

OUR QUALITY WINES
The wine selection combines crisp and fruity whites with medium to full bodied reds, for a variety of palates. In the Chalet Hotels we also offer an additional light fresh rosé to our guests’ choice. The wines are selected in conjunction with our good friends Nicolas and Véronique – the third generation in the Perret family’s fine wine business based in the Savoie. Nicolas is a qualified wine expert, having trained at the prestigious Burgundy Wine University in Beaune. Each season in October, Nicolas & Véronique bring over a new selection for us to sample (someone has to do it!) and together we choose our wines for the coming season, based on our menus and their pure enjoyment factor. Wine is an incredibly subjective and emotive subject, however the feedback we have received from our guests over recent seasons endorses our aims of providing wines to enhance your meal and to suit most tastes.
