Chalet Balkiss is ideally located on the bottom of the piste in the beautiful village of La Tania in the Three Valleys for ski-in/ski-out access to the largest ski area in Europe.  It is just a short distance from the high-speed gondola lift which takes you up to above Courchevel 1850 at Col de la Loze from where you can easily ski into both Courchevel and Meribel.

This is one of this operators' very popular premium service chalets where you'll be pampered by their staff and will enjoy an upgraded service with an additional cheeseboard course after the evening meal, followed by liqueurs and chocolates plus canapes and aperitifs before you start. Chalet Balkiss is an "upside down" chalet with the living area on the upper floor - vaulted high ceilings into the room give a spacious feel with a sociable living area and log burner - there's more than enough space for all the chalet guests to sit and relax in the evenings.

Outside on the balcony, you'll find a hot-tub where you can soak away the aches and pains and take in the amazing views over the Bozel Valley or you can make use of the indoor sauna facility.

This chalet is provided with a "Premium Service" – Enjoy a little extra pampering on us with upgraded rooms including better quality bed linens, bed runners and comfy cushions, choice of firm and soft pillows, fluffy bathrobes, extra-large bath towels and hairdryers.  And to ensure you get a good night’s sleep after a busy day on the slopes, this chalet is equipped with Hypnos beds, world renowned as the ultimate in sleep indulgence.

Chalet Balkiss is just a short walk from the village centre of La Tania where you'll find a selection of bars and restaurants to sample for apres-ski or on the staff's day off - including a Michelin star restaurant and the lively Ski Lodge pub.

This operator believes that the standard of the food is too important for the chalet staff to decide so they don't give their staff a budget and leave it up to them to cut corners! The menu is set at the beginning of the season and all staff are trained how to prepare every meal - you are therefore guaranteed that the food will be of the same standard, no matter which chalet you choose.

The main menu is identical wherever you go so even in one of their lower priced chalets, you won't go short of good quality food. They generally don't employ professional chefs as they prefer to train their own teams in their way to their high standards. They want to see left-overs on their tables - or you haven't had enough to eat. In today's economic climate, the cost of eating out in resort has increased but guests have no need to do this except on the chalet couple's day off. The breakfast table is loaded with as much as you can eat and when you return from skiing there is another loaded afternoon tea table so you leave well stocked up for your day's skiing and an expensive lunch is not necessary as you can eat your fill when you come back.

Breakfast has got to be one of the best in the Alps! They are famous for their fantastic traditional full English breakfast, available every day except for the chalet hosts day off - proper back bacon and traditional Irish sausages, Heinz Baked Beans imported from the UK go together with the eggs cooked to order, mushrooms, tomatoes, fried bread to ensure their guests are served the ‘real McCoy'. But of course it isn't just the cooked option - they also serve freshly baked in-house French bread (sourced from the same suppliers as the local bakeries, but baked in the chalet to ensure it is always warm and fresh!), jams and spreads, cereals, muesli, natural yoghurt, fresh fruit - and of course orange juice, tea and coffee.

When you return from skiing, afternoon tea will satisfy those hunger pangs with more freshly baked French bread and freshly home-made cake in plentiful supply - not limited to one piece per person so no need to make sure you're first back from the slopes! For those who prefer the low-carb option, apples and oranges are available in the fruit bowl. Afternoon tea is served by chalet staff so fresh supplies are readily available whenever you return and the service continues throughout.

Dietary Requirements

They can cater for all types of special dietary requirements - including vegetarian, gluten-free, lactose-free, nut-free and child menus with many products imported from England to suit the tastes of the British kids. These menu variations are also standard throughout the company so even these are not left to chance - for some special dietary requirements there is a small supplement to cover the additional cost and complexity of the requirement. Supplements are currently:

  • Adult meals for children under 13 who have paid a child price - £100 (children must then eat at the adult meal time)
  • Vegetarian, no red meat, no fish, no pork, no lamb - free of charge
  • Diabetic - £10 supplement
  • Gluten-free - £20 supplement
  • Dairy free - £20 supplement
  • Vegan (Dairy Free Vegetarian) - £25 supplement
  • No alcohol - non-alcoholic drink alternatives are provided with the evening meal for the person who does not drink - free of charge, but you need to let us know your choice from our non-alcoholic list in advance (so we can ensure there are sufficient supplies of your preferred drink in the chalet for you).

If you have any dietary requirements which do not fall into the above "standard options" then you need to discuss these with us and we will do our best to accommodate you!

Wine

Bottled wine is served which is of a good standard - a choice of red, white and rose served throughout the evening meal. The complimentary wines for this coming season are as follows:

Chemin des Pins Sauvignon Blanc - sometimes you just want a light, crisp white to glug down easily by the glass (or bottle) - this is just the job.
Rare Vineyards Blanc de Blancs - this is uber-refreshing, tangy, lemony and fresh. Dangerously moreish and incredibly versatile.
Domaine Montplo Rouge - a lovely light-to-medium-bodied southern red, with ample aromas and flavours of blackcurrant and red berries.
Rare Vineyards Carignan - bright, juicy, soft-hearted red from the South of France made from the peppery Carignan grape.
Montgravet Rose - a lovely ‘blush’ rose from the southwest of France rammed full of fresh berry flavour and a reassuring acidity.

Beer and Wine Upgrades

If you would like to enjoy wines outside of the dinner time, or you prefer beer to wine, then we can offer a comprehensive upgrade service where you can purchase from a wide choice of wines and champagnes, or try out their NEW Craft Beers product. These must be ordered by special order in advance of your holiday - please ask us for details. They also have a standard cash minibar in each chalet which is continuously stocked with Kronenburg beer and soft drinks - you can also purchase additional bottles of the standard wines above for consumption outside of the meal.

Chalet Day Off

On the chalet couple's day off (one day in the middle of the week), a buffet breakfast will be available for you to help yourselves - the only day of the week when the Full English option is not available. The resort managers and other chalet staff will be around to make sure you have all you need and to clear up and set the table for afternoon tea - although your chalet couple are away for the day, the resort managers will be available if you need anything. In the evening, you can try out one of the local restaurants - They'll have their menus in the chalets and chalet staff can help you make your choice and book you a table.

Menus are not fancy and complicated - they are based on normal homecooked food but with the professional touch of their chefs and their own stringent high standards. This way they ensure that most options suit the tastes of most people and the staff are more than capable of producing perfect results every time.
