Chalet hosts are selected for their out-going, friendly personalities, and of course their ability to plan and cook delicious meals, to a consistently high standard. All our staff undergo comprehensive training in resort at the start of the winter, so that they are fully prepared to care for you. As with most catered chalets, your chalet hosts will dine with you in the evenings. They are monitored regularly to ensure that they provide the level of satisfaction expected by guests, and wherever possible exceed those expectations. Our chalet hosts get a well-deserved day off each week. On the day off, breakfast is on a self-service basis and we ask you to eat out for dinner, at your own expense. Your hosts will be able to advise you about local restaurants and their regional specialities.

For breakfast you can eat as much or as little as you like. Choose from fruit juice, cereals, muesli, fresh French bread with butter and preserves, as well as cooked eggs, porridge or one of the hot options and of course tea or coffee.

At afternoon tea, the most informal meal of the day, help yourself to home made cake or scones and biscuits, either eaten at the table or relaxing beside the fire.

For Dinner, one of the highlights of the day, we use seasonal produce and chalet hosts produce a home cooked 3-course evening meal.

Sample dinner menu:

- Prawn dumplings with lemon butter sauce
- Chilli pumpkin Soup
- Courgette blinis and salsa verde
- Onion tart and crunchy salad

Main Courses

- Roast leg of lamb with red wine sauce
- Pork tenderloin with mushrooms
- Honey glazed duck breasts
- Salmon baked in a creamy lemon sauce

Vegetarian Main Courses

- Aubergine stacks


- Sticky toffee pudding with fudge sauce

After dinner fresh ground coffee or decaffeinated coffee are served in the lounge.

To complement your meal we serve free and unlimited good quality Red and White wines during the course of dinner. After dinner fresh ground coffee or decaffeinated coffee are served in the lounge. Additionally, the chalet operator has teamed up with its wine supplier Le Cellier to offer a wine delivery service giving you a greater selection of wine while on holiday. If you would like to order additional wine you can do so direct with Le Cellier. (Minimum order 6 bottles & orders must be placed at least 2 weeks prior to arrival. Free delivery to your chalet. No discount is given if you do not drink the chalet wine)

If you are a vegetarian, coeliac or are allergic to, or have a strong dislike for certain common foods, please inform the office at the earliest opportunity.

Child Care:-

Childcare, creche and nanny services are available for children staying in the chalet. The childcare service enables parents and young children alike to enjoy their family skiing holiday to the full. We employ qualified British nannies to care for your children, leaving you free to ski safe in the knowledge that they are being cared for in the best possible way.

The Crèche service (3 months to 4 years)

We offer a 6-day creche service 08.45-17.00 Sunday to Friday: This service is available for children aged 3 months to 4 years inclusive.

Our crèches provide clean, safe and stimulating environments for the children using the service. The creches are organised according to age groups and activities, providing all the facilities required by a modern day nursery. In each of our creches the nannies will have the equipment set up ready for the children's arrival in the morning. There are lots of games, toys and craft materials to stimulate the children. In addition, there will be time to play outside, subject to weather conditions and parental consent. After lunch there will normally be a quieter period and children needing a sleep will be able to do so in the separate sleeping area.

Afternoon Care (4 - 7 years)

In the morning parents should accompany children to the correct ski schools meeting point:
-Oxygene (in Plagne Centre) - Oxygene provide a free pick up

We offer an afternoon service from the end of ski school until 17.00 Sunday to Friday inclusive:
The Nanny will be on hand during ski lessons and will collect the 6 children in their care from ski school, provide lunch and supervised afternoon activities. This service only available for children aged 4 - 7 years inclusive.

We strongly advise against 3 year olds skiing with ski school: most schools will not even take them.

Private Nanny Service

A private nanny service is available in la Plagne, Les Arcs, La Rosiere and la Tania for the use of groups who book a whole chalet. The service is based on 6 days cover and includes lunch: it will take place in your chalet. The nanny will be responsible solely for those children in your group. The number of children she can look after is in accordance with the company nanny:child ratios shown. It is not possible to mix children requiring all day care with those attending morning ski school and afternoon childcare.

Please do not ask our nannies to accompany 3 year olds to ski school: we advise against 3 year olds skiing

A deposit of £50 per crèche or afternoon care place is payable on booking, or £200 deposit for a private nanny. If you have qualified for a free childcare place, we will still require the deposit. This will be offset against your final holiday balance. Deposits are non-refundable and cancellation charges apply as per our booking terms and conditions.

Part weeks cannot be booked. You can take your child out of the chosen service at any time, we suggest you liaise with the nannies, but no refund will be given.

Infant Charge

There is a charge of £115 per child under 2 years of age, whether the childcare services are used or not. As standard, this includes a cot, cot linen, high chair and high tea. At no extra charge you can also request a steriliser, baby monitor, baby bath, bath mat or potty. If you require any of these, please note them on your booking form. If an infant less than 2 years requires a bed then the child price applies. This charge also includes a seat on transfer taxis or coaches. Please note that child seats are not provided, this is due to the vagaries of French law. If a transfer seat or any of the above items are not used/required, this charge will not be reduced.

We have low nanny:child ratios to ensure that each child has all the attention he or she needs and deserves. The ratios are deliberately tight and strictly adhered to. Our childcare service is on a first come, first served basis and places are much in demand.
