Every now and again the stars seem to align and extraordinary opportunities drop into your lap. Through a chance lunch and a random overheard comment, we became owners of two incredible building plots in the very centre of Avoriaz. The position is sensational, a few metres from the top of the Prodains lift, ski school meeting point and piste side bars and restaurants. The location deserved the very best and so we’ve pulled together our favourite interior designers and the very best local tradesmen with whom we have worked over the last 15 years.
Chalet Beluga will be brand spanking new for the 2018/19 ski season. A lift whisks you from the piste level to each of the six floors boasting five en-suite bedrooms, two of which have additional bunk beds, making this the ideal space for a group of 10-14.
The spacious open plan living / dining area sits on top with splendid mountain panoramas, an extremely decadent space in which to relax after a day on the slopes. Your dedicated chalet hosts will serve breakfast, afternoon tea and a 3-course evening meal on 6 evenings. The chalet comes complete with flat screen TVs in every bedroom, open fire, music system, boot warmers and balconies from where you can ponder the latest skiing fashions as they slide past on the piste outside. What else could we throw at the new Top Dog chalet in the resort? You guessed it, an underground swimming pool and hammam. Make no mistake, this is the new No. 1 address in town.
The images you can see are all CGI but our animation boys know exactly how we build and how we furnish, everything is to scale from the architect drawings and we chucked up a drone this winter to give you the actual views through every window. These chalets will be an absolutely sensational home for a week’s skiing. Real interior images to follow as soon as we can, but don’t wait, the chalets will be sold out long before then.
A catered chalet holiday is all about the food... Our Executive Chef is passionate about food and hugely sensitive to the appetite of a hungry skier whilst considering a balanced diet. The new and refined menus are heavy enough to reward mountain exertion yet light and simple enough to leave you grinning not groaning.
As well as possessing a flair for entertaining and a genuine love of food, our chalet hosts are friendly, unflappable and exceptionally hard working. Every chalet and hotel in our portfolio offers you a catered ski holiday, so whether you choose to ski in France, Austria or Switzerland, your dedicated chalet host will ensure your mountain exertions are rewarded with sumptuous food and fine wine.
Watch the video below to see what previous guests thought of our catered chalets.
If you are staying in one of our larger CLUB chalets then your chef will be offering canapés and a choice of menu on 6 evenings; a little more choice to pander the penchant of everyone in the party.

Special dietary requests can be catered for, please advise at the time of booking.
Many of our guests have commented that occasionally, after a hard day skiing (and often quite a substantial lunch on the mountain), they would prefer to see a more simple dish on the menu, or maybe a lighter option.
We’ve listened to your requests and can now offer the following menu choices which can be ‘switched in’ from our standard menu plan.
Simply select the dish you wish to switch (listed below 1-5), and select the dish you wish to replace it with (listed below A-G).
Dinner on the first Sunday evening cannot be switched. This is only available for whole chalet bookings and the whole group must all agree on the ‘switch’ i.e. only one dish can be served each night (vegetarians/ special dietary requirements will of course still be catered for). Menu switches must be advised no later than 2 weeks prior to travel in order for us to pass on the details to your chalet host. No limit to switches, you can switch just one, or all 5 meals.
We do understand a holiday can sometimes be stressful particularly if you, or one of your family have food allergies or special dietary requirements. Our mission is simple; to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible. So, to that end we will do everything we can to cater for your needs. Whilst our menu is planned, it is not set in stone, we will always do our best to accommodate preferences and requests.
Unfortunately, most ski resorts simply do not offer the huge selection of Gluten, Lactose or Dairy free products available in UK supermarkets. That said, if you have any dietary requests, food intolerances or food allergies, we will do our upmost to plan the menu to suit your needs.
Have special dietary requests? In order to plan the menu and source relevant ingredients it is important that you advise us at the time of booking (or at least two weeks before you depart for your holiday). If you have any questions or concerns, one of our Executive Chefs would be more than happy to speak with you personally to ensure you have the confidence we can deliver a chalet holiday to remember. Please call 020 8313 3999 if you wish to discuss your dietary requirements.
Our chalet hosts serve high tea for children around 5.30-6pm. We require all children under 12 to take high tea unless you book the whole chalet. If you book the whole chalet and would rather your children eat with you later then please advise us at the time of booking along with any dietary requirements your child may have.
Our children's menus are very adaptable and the chalet host will discuss with you on arrival to tailor meals to your children's liking.
Our wines are selected by our Chalet Sommelier, Xavier Rousset. Chief Sommelier at the Hotel du Vin from 1999 to 2004 and Ruinart UK Sommelier of the Year in 2002, Xavier then became the youngest Master Sommelier in the world. After working as Head Sommelier at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Xavier opened his own restaurant, Texture, with Head Chef, Agnar Sverrisson in 2007. We are all privileged to enjoy Xavier’s advice and share in his passion.
