Enjoy a fully catered stay, with your own private chef

For the ultimate catered chalet experience, we can arrange a private chef for the week in selected properties. From dinner on your day of arrival to breakfast on your day of departure, you’ll be able to enjoy French and Savoyard inspired cuisine and crowd-pleasing classics across seven breakfasts, six afternoons with tea and cake and six three-course evening meals, leaving you one evening free to enjoy a meal in a local restaurant.

Your chef’s menu puts fresh, seasonal produce in the spotlight using locally sourced organic products wherever possible.
