Overview - chalet description - Chalet Aventine (La chaumiere Chalets) description

The La Chaumière Chalets is an attractive, classically Savoyarde building that was specially converted to four attractive chalet apartments, each staffed and run individually, but sharing our in-chalet child care rooms, sauna, hot-tub and ski storage.

The chalet Aventine has a comfortable and stylish interior, with open-plan living/dining areas with attractive log-burning stove.

Our Nursery and Snow Club rooms are on the ground floor in purpose-designed child care rooms and it is also here that we run our Cocoa Clubs in the evenings. Children in Classic Child Care will use Chalet Aventine for their lunches.

Situated in a quiet cul de sac just off the village centre with both the Chavannes and Mont Chéry lifts within a short stroll. The location is ideal for families, with plenty of safe secluded space for outdoor fun and games in the snow.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Aventine (La chaumiere Chalets)

With a skiers’ buffet breakfast to start your day, afternoon tea to welcome you ‘home’, and 4- or 5-course evening meals with wine and coffee included to complete the evening, our chalets and Chalet Hotels provide by far the best value accommodation in the Alps!

We set high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that guests will enjoy every meal with us.

For six days of the week in both chalets and Chalet Hotels, our staff prepare all your meals for you. The majority of parents feel that young children can inhibit the dinner-party atmosphere at evening meals, especially if they are over-tired, so children under 13 years are served High Tea at around 5.30pm in our chalets and Chalet Hotels alike. They are not then permitted to join adult dinner, as they are generally happier either getting some rest ready for tomorrow’s adventures, or if 6 years old or more, joining our child care staff in Cocoa Club.

On their one day off per week, your host in chalets will prepare a Continental-style breakfast which will be left for you to help yourselves, whilst in Chalet Hotels, a full buffet breakfast will still be served to you as normal. That evening, you and your family then have the chance to eat out in one of the local cafés or restaurants, which your Representative will be happy to help you arrange.


A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide our chalet guests a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, and boiled eggs. This is normally presented buffetstyle for you to help yourself.

In addition to all the above, our Chalet Hotels and NEW this year in all our chalets, a hot dish, such as scrambled eggs on toast, or home-made pancakes with maple syrup is also offered.

Piste Picnics

Our Chalet Hotel teams can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge. For those keen to keep their Eurospending to an absolute minimum, this is the ideal way to keep your costs down!

Afternoon Tea

The traditional ‘welcome home’ after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except the team’s one day off each week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake – different every day and our Chalet Hotels also feature a selection of cakes for you to choose from.

Children’s High Tea

High Tea provides children under 13 with a healthy menu, but tailored more towards children’s tastes than our main adult dinner, and puréed food is also always available for infants on request. Parents are asked to accompany their children under 36 months at High Tea please, whilst children from 3-12 years will be supervised by staff.

Adult Dinner in Chalets

In all our chalets, our four-course dinners for adults (and children 13 and over only) start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert. The meal is accompanied by a choice of wines, unlimited during the meal service, with freshly chilled water also always available, and followed by complimentary coffee or tea with chocolates to round off your evening.

Special Diets

Vegetarian options are always on our ‘Culinary Choice’ menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets if you advise us in advance. Other special diets can generally be catered for at a cost of £35 per person per week. Any dietary requirements must be advised to us at the time of booking in order for us to be fully prepared.

Family Dining Chalets

For those families who prefer to eat together with their younger children, we offer our Family Dining option in any chalet of up to 12 beds, if you book the whole chalet for your own party, subject to chalet suitability. Everyone then eats together in the evening, starting at 6.30-7.00pm. The meals are based on our adult menus, with some flexibility for younger taste buds, although not a complete ‘à la carte’ choice!

The additional charge for changing meals to Family Dining is £39 per child.

We update Chalet Aventine (La chaumiere Chalets)'s details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

This package holiday to Chalet Aventine (La chaumiere Chalets) in Les Gets, France departs Sunday 7th January 2018, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

This is as close to an alpine fairy tale as it gets. A beautiful resort tucked away between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, Les Gets’ charm comes from rustic wooden chalets, friendly locals and the inevitably cosy atmosphere a smaller village is able to offer. Situated just an hour from Geneva Airport, it’s perfect for those who don’t want to waste a chunk of their holiday travelling, as most people who fly in the morning are able to make it onto the slopes by mid-afternoon. This is also one of the closest res...
Les Gets has a number of ski schools, making it an excellent place for children and beginners - most have bi-lingual instructors, and the resort’s popularity with families means instructors are well versed in teaching children to ski. A designated beginner park called ‘Mappy’s Area’ is close the Chavannes cable car, with gentle slopes, several magic carpets and rope tows. There are good blue runs near the centre of town, and further up towards Chavannes, for any older learners who want to enjoy some of the...
Whilst the resort isn’t primarily known for a huge après ski scene, a choice of over 100 shops, bars and restaurants means there’s definitely fun to be had after a long day on the slopes. There are several lively bars and most will stay open until about 2am. The Irish pub is great for its friendly atmosphere, home-brewed beers, live music and great tapas. The Black Bear is child friendly, with a pool table, and the Black Bush hosts a range of fancy dress nights. If 2am isn’t late enough for you, Igloo nightc...

"Good week overall, just a slight issue with childcare"

Mrs Nelson, Northern Ireland
4/ out of 5
Overall the chalet is comfortable and we were pleased. A couple with us had stayed in another apartment in the same building, and said that this one was much nicer. It has a nice open space and everything was clean. There’s a pot belly stove there but it didn’t have a guard so they couldn’t have had it on with children around. The chalet’s generally ok for children, not so good for babies – ours was 9 months at the time and there was nothing provided apart from the high chair. The girls from the crèche gave us some toys they had there, and it was just as well we’d bought a few toys with us too. The crèche staff were great, our little boy sometimes finds it hard to settle in but the girl was really good with him and he got on well. However it’s a mixed bag review because we missed some days of childcare and had to pay extra privately. Our son had made himself sick, and they wouldn’t let him in the crèche. I completely understand the policy but he wasn’t actually ill, and having to pay for extra childcare was very expensive. All the staff were lovely, it was just disappointing about the policy when we had already paid for childcare. The only thing I would suggest with the childcare is that it would have been good to be able to book it from 9-3 rather than only a full or half day. Our family suite was fine apart from being a little cold! We did mention it to the young fellow in charge who was having a week of things breaking down – we ended up helping him to do the dishes as the dishwasher broke down, and the fridge broke too. The host was great though, very friendly and helpful. In terms of the location for families, it’s about a ten minute walk from the resort which is fine, no big deal. The people we hired skis with were fantastic.
