Chalet du Berger is very much in the French family home style, so has great character, but we'd be kidding if we said it was really plush. It offers great value for money for skiers who are simply interested in skiing rather than pampering, because, of course, you still get the same excellent service.
In Autumn 2016 we made some very practical improvements to this great value chalet:
Boot warmers, new entrance styling, new bathroom stylings, new storage area.
The location of Du Berger is perfect, with the Solaise cable car only a 4 minute walk away. There's usually enough snow to ski back very close by to the chalet.
The lounge/dining area has a warm atmosphere and mountain views from the balcony. Some bedrooms are smaller than others (just ask when you call us) but all have ensuite bathrooms and plenty of hot water! We offer a generous discount for filling the chalet, so if budget is a key factor but you don't want to compromise on the ski area, Du Berger is definitely worth a look.

Your day starts with freshly brewed tea or coffee (don’t worry, we bring real teabags from the UK) and a spread of fresh crusty baguette and jams, yoghurts, fruit, cereals and porridge on the table. The cooked breakfast menu changes every day but includes bacon, sausages, eggs, French toast, grilled tomato, succulent mushrooms, Heinz baked beans and HP sauce…
Once you’ve returned from your tough day on the slopes, homemade afternoon tea is served and favourites range from classic treats such as scones with cream and jam to squidgy brownies or raspberry and white chocolate cupcakes. In the evening we let our experienced hosts use their imaginations and the fantastic fresh produce we have to create a mouthwatering 3-course menu for the week.
Unlimited red, rosé and white wines (from bottles, not boxes!) are served through dinner, (with coffee and chocolates in the comfy seats after your meal!)
If you’re a bit of a wine buff, you can pre-order our Wine Lover's Package which is just £48pp for 6 bottles of our upgraded selection - you choose whether you'd like 6 whites, 6 reds, our mixed selection or your very own combination of the above!
Children are equally well looked after. If you wish your youngsters to have an earlier tea – all homemade, fresh and nutritious, of course – then please let us know in advance so we can pass the message on to your host.
If there’s anything you’d rather not eat, whether for moral, sensory or digestive reasons, please don’t hesitate to let us know before you travel. We won’t charge you a penny extra.
