Food & Drink

Chalet food with the ‘wow’ factor…

A good catered chalet holiday should revolve around three things (aside from amazing skiing!) – gorgeous chalets, slick service and food with the wow factor.

In each of our catered chalets we have a qualified chef who has trained in fine dining. Our chef team comes from some of the hottest restaurants around, including many with Michelin stars!

You can expect a hearty, healthy breakfast, indulge in a slice of tasty homemade cake in the afternoon, and sit down to a delicious and imaginative four-course meal served alongside wines from our carefully selected list.

catered chalets

Catered chalet dining

The luxury of a catered chalet is that you’ll have all your meals organised, cooked and served for you, without anyone needing to shop, scrub the kitchen or spend time slaving over a hot stove.

Our chefs will create a menu to rival most of the local restaurants, showing off their culinary imagination and making sure you’ll have a holiday to write home about!

Our talented team are happy to tailor their menus, please just let us know your preferences in advance! There’s no extra charge for dietary requirements such as vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free etc…

Children

Simpler children’s early meals can be provided – just let us know in advance of your holiday, we’ll ask you a few favourites and create nutritious menus for your little ones. If you are one family and would prefer to all eat together, just let us know in advance.

Chalet wine selection

Handpicked wines

It’s a serious business, choosing wine for our chalet guests! We use a specialist supplier called Verre Gourmand who host regular tastings so that we can choose interesting and delicious wines to complement our chef’s creations and make sure that our team are well trained in how to serve our wines.

Wine Selection

House wines: you’ll have your pick of sparkling wine, whites and reds to help yourselves to during your stay. This is alongside the bottled beers and soft drinks that are readily available in the complimentary bar.

Dinner wines: Each day, your host will serve the paired wines that the chef and sommelier have chosen to accompany the dishes on the menu. They’ll include bottles from all over France as well as other famous areas in Europe and the New World.

catered chalet breakfast

Breakfasts

If you enjoy a cooked breakfast (and what better excuse than a ski holiday?) then your chef will cook your request to order.

Take your pick from a continental spread of flaky, buttery croissants, fresh milk, cereals, fruit juices, a selection of fruit and yoghurts, crusty French bread, Nespresso coffees, one of our range of quality teas or a builder’s brew!

The choice is yours…

chalet afternoon tea

Afternoon tea

Afternoon tea… It’s a ski chalet tradition and no holiday would be complete without a homemade cake, scones or biscuits to top you up after losing all those calories on the hill!

When you arrive back to the chalet in the afternoon, you’ll see a daily Cake laid out along with tea and cofee. Help yourselves!

Got a special occasion during your ski week? Ask us about birthday cakes, proposals, anniversaries, special meals, particular wines or champagne etc. – we’ll be happy to help!

Catered Service Winter 2019-2020

We have slightly adjusted our catered service for the next winter season: on five mornings our chef will serve a cooked breakfast as usual and on two mornings breakfast will be self-service. It wouldn’t be a chalet holiday without afternoon tea, and you’ll find cake or biscuits and hot drinks left out in the chalet every day during your holiday.

In the evenings there will be five nights when our chefs will serve four courses preceded by canapés as usual then one evening when the chef will leave you an oven-ready meal to heat up, which guests will choose from our menu. As normal, our guests will also have the opportunity to dine in a local restaurant on one evening.

Our usual extra services will remain the same, ie. housekeeping, driver service, concierge…
