Bear Suites are affectionately named after mythical bears from around the world and offer the intimacy of our renown and award-winning chalet service with the fabulous facilities of Bear Resort; a spacious common lounge and bar, proper size pool complex with sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and massage suites, gym, cinema, kids playroom and concierge ski room with rental shop.

Located along the side of the Baptiste Giabiconi blue piste and opposite the Marmottes and Bois de L’Ours chairlifts. You can glide away from the concierge managed ski room and rental shop or stroll across the piste to the magical traffic-free village of Arcs 1950. An extraordinary high altitude intersection of pistes and forty charismatic shops, cafés, bars and restaurants.

Suite Balto accommodates 8-10 guests in four en suite bedrooms, one of which has additional bunk beds (charged at half the adult price) making this an ideal space for two families or a group of friends. It is located on the fourth floor of the building, with direct access to the village just down the hall.

The suite is entirely independent with open plan living/dining area and balcony overlooking the piste and providing spectacular views. Of course, there is surround sound TV, WiFi, flat-screen TV’s in the bedrooms and a dedicated chalet host.

Arc 1950 has been somewhat exclusive, with all the apartment buildings managed by either Pierre et Vacances or Radisson, needless to say, we’re really thrilled to be opening our boutique hotel and chalet-apartments in this fantastic resort. It has a real ‘village’ feel with a good selection of cafes, restaurants, bars and shops.

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.

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).

  1. Coq au Vin Blanc, served with Hasselback Potatoes, Vichy Carrots & Garlic Green Beans
  2. Teriyaki Beef, served with Coconut Rice & Stir-fried Vegetables
  3. Roasted Duck Leg, served with Pearl Barley, Butternut Squash, Carrot and Orange Puree
  4. Cod Loin, served with Bubble and Squeak Cake, Mange tout and Salsa Verde
  5. Pork Tenderloin & Boudin Noir, served with Apple Puree, Garlic Potatoes, Savoy Cabbage & Gravy

‘Switch’ in choices (LO = light option)

  1. Tartiflette with Charcuterie and green salad
  2. Gourmet burgers with chunky chips
  3. Homemade Lasagne and green salad
  4. Savoyard Salad (LO)
  5.  Pan-fried Sea Bream with sizzled ginger, chilli & red onion (LO)
  6. Lemon Baked chicken and warm quinoa salad (LO)
  7. Vietnamese Chicken & Mint Salad (LO)

Important notes

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.

Dietary requests

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.

Sample children's menu

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.
