Whilst the chalet is marketed as an un-catered chalet many people also do take it catered. Our philosophy is a little different and when people do want catering we bring in a chef for the week to carry out breakfast and evening meals. This facility is not like any normal chalet dining, and offers a Gourmet menu together with the most fabulous cuisine. This experience can be taken either on a weekly basis or if preferred just for a couple of days. In addition to this we do offer a range of excellent quality French Wines, which can be purchased from us at the Chalet. You will have a chance to sample some of these wines on a free of charge basis on your arrival.
We can arrange a transfer from Geneva on your behalf with a local specialist company, which has given us an excellent service over the years. We also have reliable ski guides and instructors, which we use year after year. For further information on any of these services please contact us and we can give you the individual information.
Directly under the chalet is a private garage to house one car. This has a automatic barrier system and is completely secure. The size is 3.10m x 5.50M with a max height of 2.20M. Please do not park in front of the garage while unloading, as it is a communal garage and services a number of chalets. It must not be blocked at any time.
