Chalet Francois offers an unbeatable location next door to the Tufs lift, the ski school meeting point and just across the piste from the lively centre of Val Claret. The chalet is also just a short ski down a blue run from the Bollin-Fresses lift and the Grand Motte Funicular.
Chalet Francois offers the luxury of fully en suite rooms and a shared Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room on the lower level of the building (for the use of chalets Valerie and Dominique as well). It is modern throughout with a comfortable living area and spectacular views over the Bollin piste and Grand Motte Glacier. Chalet Francois is housed within the same building as sister chalets Valerie and Francois and is accessed via an internal lift and central staircase.

Some staff for all three chalets live in on the third floor of Chalet Dominique and have Wednesdays off.
A tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by local councils in European ski resorts to support the local tourism infrastructure and may include services such as ski buses, subsidised admission to amenities e.g. pools and ice rinks and events such as firework displays. The amount charged varies according to the standard and type of your accommodation. It is also not paid by all skiers as it is age dependent. Therefore it is not included in the basic price of your holiday as we do not have all skiers’ ages at the time of booking.

This operator takes great care in planning and creating their delicious menus for all of their chalets, whether they are Grade 3-5 or Signature. If your letters and emails are anything to go by they have succeeded in creating menus that are fresh, healthy and beautifully presented – thank you for your appreciation.
They set high standards for their food and test and taste every one of their recipes – that includes their London office… someone has to do it! Their menus are specially designed to give you what your body needs for active days on the mountain. Chalet hosts are thoroughly trained and required to pass a food and hygiene certificate. They have a team of senior managers whose role is to ensure they deliver first-class meals and service throughout the season.
Because food matters, they believe it is important to use fresh local produce wherever they can. They draw inspiration from regional cuisine and combine it with familiar favourites within their menus. All of their dishes are cooked from scratch and freshly prepared for you to enjoy:

Chalet and lodge menus are set menus based on local ingredients. Therefore, it is very important you discuss any dietary requirements with our team before booking. If you have a dietary request which necessitates the preparation of separate dishes outside of our normal menu provision, your booking cannot be confirmed until we have been able to confirm in writing that this is possible. This is especially the case where allergies are concerned (see below). Please also note that we are not responsible for food provided on airlines or restaurants.
Vegetarian menus can always be provided in our chalets as long as we are notified in advance. Please ensure this is noted on your invoice. If we are not notified before arrival, there is a £25 (€30) charge payable in resort. There is a daily vegetarian option available in all their lodges.
They may be able to cater for special diets such as Vegan, gluten free, dairy free but this is subject to the availability of specialist ingredients locally so this must be discussed with our team before booking. If we are able to cater to your request, there will be a charge as detailed below to contribute to the cost of additional ingredients and deliveries. All such requests should be discussed with our team at least 14 days prior to departure and you must ensure this is noted on your invoice. If you arrive in resort without having discussed and had noted and confirmed any special dietary requests with us, we cannot guarantee we will be able to cater for your needs. If we are able to do so, there will be a charge of £50 or €60 in resort.
Food allergies – We cannot guarantee the complete avoidance of specific foodstuffs (for example nuts) and therefore cannot accept any liability in the event of an allergic reaction. When you travel with us you accept that our chalet and lodge teams, whilst trained are not always qualified professionals and despite their best efforts we cannot guarantee zero contact with specified foodstuffs, that cross-contamination cannot be ruled out, that we have no control over items of food brought in by other guests and that we cannot always be aware of the precise food contents of ingredients.
