Food and Nutrition

Your Food

You will see many chalets promoting “gourmet” or “fine dining” catering as a unique selling point. This is not what we are about, we think you should get this as standard.

We consider that what you really need is the sort of food that will sustain the rise in levels of activity that you will be experiencing on an active ski holiday.
This means nutritionally balanced meals.
This does not mean that they should be basic, on the contrary, we aim to provide restaurant quality food with service to match and menus that you would never create at home.

Our chef’s food is of the highest quality and ingenuity. It will match or better anything you can get at any other chalet and surpasses that available on many local restaurants.

The pictures on this page are a small sample of real dishes prepared by our real chef cooked at our real chalet.
They are not library pictures!
