Chalet Hotel Les Ducs de Savoie has an excellent location in the centre of Val d’Isère and an atmosphere best appreciated by couples who wish to enjoy some of the very best skiing in a world class resort.
The Ducs de Savoie is located in the heart of the main village and is just a 3 or 4 minutes’ walk to the main lifts including the Solaise Express, the Bellevarde Express Chair, and the Olympique Gondola, with connections to the Tovière ridge and the skiing in Tignes. The building is actually just off the main street so has a quiet location but is still in the heart of the resort. The bus stop is just 30m from the Chalet Hotel giving different options for the start of the day’s skiing, whether going to La Daille to be over in Tignes early, or to Le Fornet so you can be one of the first up on the Pissaillas Galcier.
The Chalet Hotel has a lounge and bar on the ground floor where the pre-dinner apéritifs and canapés are served, before guests move on to enjoy evening meals with complimentary wine and tea or coffee in the attractive dining-room. There is a warm and welcoming atmosphere in the communal areas with comfortable furnishings and warm wooden decor.
On one night a week, the evening meal is not included, but the location of the Chalet Hotel means that a choice of restaurants is close at hand and the Hotel Manager and Resort Team can always make suggestions for you.
There is a selection of rooms from twins and triples to larger family rooms and suites and these are also available for couples. All bedrooms have an en suite bathroom and a flat screen TV (with some UK channels) and incorporated DVD.
As with all Chalet Hotels, a buffet breakfast is provided every day with a cooked breakfast 5 days a week. Afternoon Tea includes cakes as well as savoury options and the 3-course evening meals (on 6 nights of the week) will be the highlight of the day.
However access to the wonderful ski area has to be the main draw of this Chalet Hotel and being in the heart of this famous ski resort.
We set very high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that you will thoroughly enjoy every meal on your holiday with us. We also take our Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously, so all our chalet and Chalet Hotel staff involved in food preparation are trained to the City & Guilds qualification – Level 2 in Food Safety during the pre-season training course. There is a continental breakfast is every morning and a breakfast hot option, afternoon tea and evening dinners are provided for six days of the week in both chalets and Chalet Hotels.
A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide both a hot option, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. On our staff day off, only the continental breakfast will be provided.
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 on the staff day off. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready.
Our Chalet Hotels can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge. For skiers keen to keep their Euro-spending to an absolute minimum, this is the ideal way to keep your costs down!
In chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 11 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children’s tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.
Families staying in one of our Chalet Hotels may choose to eat separately (High Tea at 5:30pm) or all dine together at the later adult dinner time if children who have received a child discount pay the meal upgrade charge of £39 at the time of booking only.
In the evenings our chefs will cook you a three-course meal six nights a week. Before your meal, there is a glass of prosecco and canapés served in the bar. The three courses consist of an appetiser, main course and dessert – with unlimited complimentary red, white and rosé wine during service! There is also an option for vegetarians.
There is a choice of appetiser, main course and dessert or cheese and your order is usually taken in the morning and then is served to your table.
On the staff one night off per week just a continental breakfast is provided and it’s a great opportunity for you to experience some local restaurants in your resort. Speak to your resort representative or Chalet Hotel Manager for recommendations and help with reservations.
Vegetarian options are available in our properties – just advise us at time of bookings so that we can ensure that our staff can prepare. 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. Our Chalet Hosts will discuss your dietary requirements with you upon arrival to the chalet or Chalet Hotel.
All of our chalets and Chalet Hotels will serve a traditional Christmas dinner with a glass of Champagne to start off the evening. This will include roast turkey with all of the trimmings, Christmas pudding, mince pies, crackers and party hats plus a fantastic Alpine atmosphere in which to enjoy the day.
A special festive menu will also be served on New Year’s Eve, alongside the added bonus that many resorts put on fantastic firework displays. A glass of fizz, whilst watching fireworks over the snow-capped peaks of the Alps.. what better way to bring in the New Year!
We are very proud of our wine selection for chalets and Chalet Hotels, which combines crisp and fruity whites with medium to full-bodied reds, for a variety of palates. We select our wines in conjunction with our good friends Nicolas and Véronique – the third generation in the Perret family’s fine wine business based in the Savoie. Nicolas is a qualified wine expert, having trained at the prestigious Burgundy Wine University in Beaune. Each season in October, Nicolas & Véronique bring over a new selection for us to sample (someone has to do it!) and together we choose our wines for the coming season, based on our menus and their pure enjoyment factor. Wine is an incredibly subjective and emotive subject, however, the feedback we have received from our guests over recent seasons endorses our aims of providing wines to enhance your meal and to suit most tastes. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!
