Important Covid-19 refund promise
This operator completely understands that you need the flexibility of booking to match the current bewildering uncertainty in our lives, be it the accuracy of tests, chance of a vaccine or the rule of 6. We need to adapt so you can secure the ski holiday you would love to take whilst giving you the flexibility to change your chalet, date or even ski season (!) for whatever reason you like, and without caveat, right up until the last minute.
So for all new bookings made with this operator from 17 September, you can change your booking for any other chalet or later date during the 2020/21 or 2021/22 ski season right up until two weeks before you travel. We know that there are loads of reasons why you might want to do this at the moment so we aren’t going to ask any questions whatsoever.
We do need to ask you for a 50% deposit in order to help us introduce this flexibility and buy the different elements of the holiday on your behalf, but we don’t need the balance until 4 weeks before you travel, much later than we would previously have asked, and at this point you can also choose to cancel and get a full refund if you wish.
We hate small print so we have to make clear in big print that if we have to buy in a scheduled flight on your behalf because our own charter flights don’t suit you or are fully booked then the airlines, in all likelihood, won’t be as generous as us, and you might not get your money back for this part of your holiday if you cancel or change your booking. We will however make clear to you at the time of booking if this caveat applies to you.
A copy of the full terms and conditions are available on request.
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.
All our catered ski chalet holidays include;
- Continental breakfast with a cooked option on 6 mornings
- Afternoon tea will be left in the chalet for you to help yourself to freshly made cake or biscuits, bread & jams, selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate
- Canapés on the first and last evening
- 3-course evening meal (6 nights) followed by cheese board and coffee
- A choice of red and white wine is served throughout dinner
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.
Our three hotels, Altitude Lodge in Les Gets, Hotel Montjola in St Anton and Hotel Theodul in Lech, include dinner and cooked breakfast on 7 days.
To prepare you for your day on the mountain, for breakfast you can tuck into croissants and pain au chocolat, yoghurts, bread, jam, honey, selection of cereals, porridge, and cooked breakfast plus orange juice, coffee & a selection of teas.
Waiting for you on your return from a day on the mountain you can expect delights such as Death by Chocolate Cookies, Banana & Nutella Muffins, Date Slice and Carrot Cake
For those who prefer the savoury course how about; Sweet potato, coconut lime & chilli soup; beetroot & goat’s cheese stack with fig chutney or red onion and brie tart
For main course, your host will freshly prepare dishes such as;
- Coq au Vin Blanc, served with hasselback potatoes, vichy carrots & garlic green beans
- Teriyaki Beef, served with coconut rice & stir-fried vegetables
- Cod loin, served with bubble and squeak cake, mange toute and salsa verde
- Pork tenderloin & boudin noir, served with apple puree, garlic potatoes, savoy cabbage & gravy
If you still have room you can then enjoy something sweet, such as; Baked lemon cheesecake; sticky toffee pudding with orange toffee sauce or chocolate mint mousse cake
Cheese & Coffee
Retire to the lounge and enjoy a fresh coffee and a selection of cheeses.
The dishes above are examples of what you can expect on the menu, please note it is not a confirmed menu for the upcoming season.
Special dietary requests can be catered for, please advise at the time of booking.
Choose alternative dishes
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).
- Coq au Vin Blanc, served with Hasselback Potatoes, Vichy Carrots & Garlic Green Beans
- Teriyaki Beef, served with Coconut Rice & Stir-fried Vegetables
- Roasted Duck Leg, served with Pearl Barley, Butternut Squash, Carrot and Orange Puree
- Cod Loin, served with Bubble and Squeak Cake, Mange tout and Salsa Verde
- Pork Tenderloin & Boudin Noir, served with Apple Puree, Garlic Potatoes, Savoy Cabbage & Gravy
‘Switch’ in choices (LO = light option)
- Tartiflette with Charcuterie and green salad
- Gourmet burgers with chunky chips
- Homemade Lasagne and green salad
- Savoyard Salad (LO)
- Pan-fried Sea Bream with sizzled ginger, chilli & red onion (LO)
- Lemon Baked chicken and warm quinoa salad (LO)
- Vietnamese Chicken & Mint Salad (LO)
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.
