Catered service

Sit back and relax, you’re on holiday!

If you choose our catered service during the winter season, you’re in for a treat!

On your first night you will be welcomed to the chalet by your friendly host, who will provide you with a wealth of information about the chalet and resort, whilst you relax with a glass of wine.

You will then be invited to sit down to a delicious three-course meal, accompanied by bottled red and white wines (unlimited throughout the meal). After dinner you can enjoy coffee in the lounge.  Guests in our Signature chalets will also enjoy canapés and aperitif each night before dinner, and dinner will be followed by the option of a cheese course.

Whether your holiday will involve first lifts and fresh tracks, or mid-morning starts and leisurely lunches, we’ll be up and about working hard to get your day off to the best possible start (and we’ll try to be quiet – we promise!). In both our Classic and Signature chalets you will enjoy a hearty breakfast with a choice of cereals, accompanied by yoghurts and fresh baguette with butter and preserves. We also offer a hot option, such as bacon and eggs, on 5 of 7 mornings during your stay.

Every afternoon you’ll return to the chalet after skiing to find a delicious afternoon tea waiting to be demolished! You’ll tuck into a range of teas, freshly brewed coffee, fresh baguette and butter, preserves and chocolate spread. Oh, and let’s not forget the freshly baked cake or biscuits of the day.

Our younger guests are also well catered for and will be served a two-course children’s ‘high tea’ earlier than the adult evening meal – see example children’s menu below. To drink, the younger guests will be offered a selection of cordials, fruit juice or water. We regret we can’t supply fizzy drinks.

We also provide you with the option to pre-purchase cases of beer/lager, or a selection of upgrade premium wines (including Rosé), Prosecco or Champagne to enjoy during your stay.  Please click here to view the upgrade list.

Please note that the chalet kitchens are not available for guest use.

One of our favourite things about chalet holidays is the food! We’re big fans of quality home cooking that is delicious and plentiful. Our hosts are not catering professionals, but they are all enthusiastic cooks who are trained to cook to a carefully pre-planned menu.

Children’s meals

As standard, children under 12 years are served their evening meal eat at an earlier time than the adult evening meal. The children’s earlier dinner will be served between 5.30pm – 6.30pm.

We have included our standard children’s menu below. We would much rather children eat food that they enjoy, so if there is anything they simply won’t eat, please do let us know well in advance of arrival and we will adapt accordingly.

Home-made Chicken Goujons with Potato Wedges and Peas
Chocolate Brownie & Ice Cream
Spaghetti Bolognaise
Apple Crumble

It is usually not possible to serve a children’s menu at the same time as the adult menu. Most chalet kitchens are domestic in nature, and it simply isn’t logistically possible to produce two completely different menus at the same time. If you would like your young children to eat their evening meal with the adults in an exclusive use chalet, they will normally need to eat from the adult menu (or a simplified version of the adult menu).

Some parents may prefer their children to eat a small portion of the adult evening meal at the same time as the adults. We are happy to accommodate this for exclusive chalet bookings. We regret we can’t accommodate this in shared chalets.

Special dietary requirements

The model of a catered chalet holiday is based on a pre-selected set menu, served to the whole chalet for the duration of your stay. Ingredients are pre-ordered and delivered to resort well in advance of your stay. Additionally, our hosts are not catering professionals and it is essential they have the time to prepare for requirements that deviate from the set menu. It is this model that allows us to provide competitively priced ski holidays in all of our resorts. It also helps us ensure that our hosts working hours are in line with the legal regulations.

Many catered chalet operators are now charging for special dietary requirements, at anywhere up to €85pp/pw. We aim to continue to be able to cater for special dietary requirements at no extra cost.

To do this, we need your help. It is essential that all special dietary requirements and allergies are communicated to us a minimum of 4 weeks prior to your holiday to allow us to add these into the ordering cycle.

Any requirements communicated after this time, or upon arrival in resort, will be subject to a locally payable surcharge of €45. Late notice also means we may be unable to cater for your requirements on the first night of your holiday.

It is the group leader’s responsibility to inform us of any dietary requirements their party may have.

Vegetarian* and Pescatarian** versions of the set menu are available if requested in advance.

* Our definition of a vegetarian is someone that eats neither fish nor meat.
** Our definition of a pescatarian is someone who eats fish, but no meat. Pescatarians will be served the vegetarian menu, with the inclusion of a fish dish on one evening.


We can generally cater for other alternative diets that involve the omission or substitution (where available) of certain ingredients from our menu that allow us to produce a variation of our standard meat and meat-free menu.  We cannot cater for diets that require new or completely different dishes to those on our standard menus.

We can usually provide a suitable menu to cater for special diets such as Gluten-Free, Lactose-Free and Coeliac.

France is still catching up to the benefits of a Vegan lifestyle. The choice of products on offer to assist us in producing vegan menu options in much more limited, and it can be difficult for our hosts to prepare a fully refined vegan menu for the week.  The vegan menu is predominantly vegetable and legume based alternatives to the meat dishes.  We cannot access replacement products such as vegan meat substitutes, vegan cheese, chocolate or agave syrup. And in many resorts, it’s difficult for us to source alternative milks such as almond, oat or coconut milks.  We can source soya milk and yoghurts, as well dairy-free spread. We regret we are unable to provide vegan wine.

Again, it is essential we know about your requirements well in advance so that we can order the correct products. See bolded text for late notice surcharge information.  If you have very strict dietary requirements, or a particular desire for certain products, it may be useful to bring these important items with you. Please feel free to discuss your requirements with us prior to arrival and we can advise which products are available in resort.

We regret we cannot provide a kosher or halal environment. We may not be able to cater for other uncommon dietary requests – please discuss with us prior to booking.

Please note, if your group has a large amount of varied or complex dietary requirements, we reserve the right to levy a one-off fee to cover the additional working hours required to source and prepare alternatives for you.

Allergen Information

It is important to be aware that our chalet hosts are not qualified catering professionals and cannot always know whether the food products used have packaged and prepared in an allergen free environment. Our menus also routinely feature many common allergens such as nuts, seeds and dairy products and cannot guarantee there will be no cross contamination.

Additionally, it is important to be aware that our guests are welcome to bring into the chalet food items of their own, we therefore cannot guarantee that other guests will not have allergen-containing food items in their rooms or other areas of the chalet. As a result, we cannot and do not guarantee the avoidance of specified ingredients and cannot accept liability in the event of any dissatisfaction with special dietary arrangements, including the occurrence of an allergic reaction.

If you or one of your party have any allergies, please speak to us prior to booking.

Chalet host day off

Our chalet hosts have one full day and one morning off per week. Prior to departing on the evening before their mornings off, a self-service breakfast will be laid out. Early in the morning, fresh bread will be delivered to your chalet. Afternoon tea will be available when you return from skiing in the afternoon. The evening of the full day off is an excellent opportunity to try out one of the excellent local restaurants. Our resort team will be happy to make a reservation on your behalf.
