Location - where is Chalet Boule de Neige

It's in a prime position in La Plagne 1800 being less than 30 metres away from the piste together with being central in the village, thus there are no long walks to the piste! The chalet is also directly opposite the fast chairlift that has been opened which whisks you towards Plagne Centre and Plagne Soleil.

The chalet is directly next door to our ski hire shop and so this is a great convenience especially for those with small children as you don't need to carry your skis anywhere!

Our Wines

Our delicious wines are selected from France through the fantastic Le Verre Gourmand. A selection of red, white and rose wine has been handpicked for you to complement your meal and your taste buds. Here is the list of our fabulous wines for this season:

The Whites

Rare Vineyards Blan de Blancs

This blend of Colombard and Ugni Blanc gives a well rounded refreshing wine made in the Languedoc – Roussillon. The fresh, fruity aroma leads to citrus in the mouth with light acidity making it a great wine to enjoy before dinner.

Chemin des Pins Sauvignon Blanc 2014

This wine is lip-smackingly fresh and crisp, You’ll find all the classic Sauvignon characteristics of lemon, lime and green grass, but there are hints of slightly riper fruit, too.

The Reds

Domaine Montplo
This is a great modern-style red blend from the South of France - full of juicy red and black fruit flavours, alongside a spot of spice and warmth. It's not too heavy, so it will work best alongside slightly lighter red meat dishes - or even poultry. The addition of 10% Cabernet Sauvignon to the Grenache and Carignan gives the wine just a bit more ooomph, while retaining its easy-going character.

Les Roches Bleues
Bright red colouring with violet glints. A complex bouquet with aromas of blackberries, spices and toffee. Nice balance in the mouth thanks to the plant flavours, and subtle tannins. The finish lingers long on the black fruit, the spices and toffee aromas.

Rose

Mas du Canal Rose

For refreshing, pale, dry, yet crisply fruity rose, look no further than this wine from the south of France. It is delightfully fresh and zingy on the palate, with bright red fruits (redcurrants, raspberries) lighting things up. It is seriously thirst-quenching stuff.

Note: At the beginning of each season some of the wines may be unavailable and so we may substitute for other wines of equal quality

Special Diets

We understand a holiday can sometimes be stressful particularly if you, or one of your family members have food allergies or special dietary requirements. We will do our best to cater for your needs however most ski resorts simply do not offer the selection of Gluten, Lactose or Dairy free products available in UK supermarkets.

In order to plan the menu and source relevant ingredients it is important that you advise us at the time of booking (or at least two weeks before you depart for your holiday).

These are the products we can get at no additional charge:

Gluten Free Flour

Gluten Free Pasta

Gluten free cakes

Soya milk

Pulse and grains

For additional products such as dairy free spreads, soy yogurts, gluten free cereals and meat substitutes due to the high cost of these items in the Alps we make an additional charge of £20 per person in order to source the right ingredients for you. If you have any questions or concerns, we would be more than happy to speak with you personally to ensure we can get things just right for you.

All you have to do is ask…..all our meals are freshly prepared using where ever possible local ingredients. If you have any particular dietary requirements please talk to us beforehand so we can do our best to get things just how you like it.

Chalet Host Night Off

Your Chalet Host will have a day off during the week. The table will have been laid the night before with breakfast cereals and fresh bread will be delivered in the morning from the local bakery to your chalet door. When you return from your day on the mountain you will find a tin of homemade flapjacks with tea and coffee to help yourself to. Your Chalet Host will help you choose and book a restaurant for you to dine out on this evening.

We update Chalet Boule de Neige'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.

In the Savoie region of the French Alps, La Plagne was established in the early sixties and now consists of 11 villages: 7 purpose built and 4 traditional.
