Superb location in the centre of Val d’Isère
Chalet Hotel Le Savoie is a very special new addition to our Chalet Hotel collection, perfectly located right on the main street in Val d’Isère. It is just a 3 minute walk to the Solaise chairlift for access to the Solaise Peak at 2,560m and the Olympique cable-car going up to the Rocher de Bellevarde, for some lovely cruisy runs towards Tignes. The ski school meeting place is conveniently located near the Olympique lift, and the in-house ski hire outlet provides a welcome extra service for guests.
Formerly run as an independent, prestigious 5 star hotel. Le Savoie is run by English speaking hosts and staff, combining the relaxed, informal atmosphere of a ski chalet with the quality accommodation of this prestigious hotel. With its 5 diamond Platinum rating then extras such as fluffy bathrobes, towelling slippers and toiletries are included as standard.
The interior layout of the hotel is a welcome sight to any visitor upon arrival as the reception, lounge, bar and restaurant areas are all on the first floor, away from the hustle and bustle of the street. The interior decoration is beautiful with the use of stone and local wood in the communal areas, along with quality furnishings in warm, muted tones creating an ambience of charm and sophistication.
Chalet Hotel Le Savoie breakfast includes hot and cold options served from 7.30 to 10am each day. Cooked options are prepared to order and there is a full continental buffet, a choice of fruit juices, cereals, porridge, a plentiful selection of pastries, cold meats, cheese and preserves as well as fresh bread and freshly brewed coffee or tea.
At the end of the ski day, the afternoon tea buffet includes a selection of home-made cakes, soup, fresh bread and a choice of savouries as well as plenty of tea and coffee.
Evening meals are served between 7.30 and 9.30pm and commence with apéritifs and canapés served at the table, followed by a slightly enhanced choice of menu. As with all Chalet Hotels, we ask you to pre-order these choices in the morning. There is also a generous or extensive cheese buffet, followed by coffee and chocolates. Evening meals are served 6 nights a week leaving you free to sample a local restaurant on the 7th night. Special diets can be catered for as with our Chalet Hotels at a supplement and if booked in advance. Please discuss this with our reservations team at the time of booking.
Unlimited wine is included with dinner and there is a selection of quality red, white and rose wines. Le Savoie also has a separate wine list so alternative wines can be purchased if desired for any special occasions.
There are also special celebration menus over the Christmas Festive period. A full traditional Christmas Dinner is included on the evening of the 25th with turkey and Christmas pudding. A special Gala Dinner is held on New Year’s Eve, ready to welcome in 2016.
There is a great choice of delightful bedrooms which all have double/ twin beds, satellite TV and many also have balcony. All the rooms are generous in size and have well appointed bathrooms, all with bath and separate wc. Many rooms combine together with a lounge area with double sofa-bed to make up a suite or even a super-suite sleeping up to 12, ideal for families or groups of friends.
The restaurant has conservatory style windows offering a lovely atmosphere and there is also a bar with a snug and a lounge area with comfy sofas, plenty of cushions and a warming fire.
Children are welcome in Chalet Hotel Le Savoie all season and the suites make ideal room choices with separate sleeping areas. High Tea is provided for children under 13 years although family dining can be organised with the payment of a small supplement (if the child has received a child reduction). For guests with babies, cots will fit in all rooms and high chairs are provided. Baby sitters can also be arranged locally. Please note that a different rate of child reductions apply to standard child reductions.
The spa area is on the ground floor and offers a fabulous area in which to relax after a day on the slopes. There is a small indoor pool, two whirlpools, two saunas, a steam room and a relaxation area. The blue and silver stylish decoration provides a delightful backdrop in this area. There are also beauty rooms and massages and beauty treatments can be enjoyed and paid for locally.
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 own holiday with us. We also take our Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously, so all our chalet and Chalet Hotel staff during the pre-season training course are trained to the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health’s Level 2 in Food Safety. For six days of the week our staff prepare all your meals, as described below.
A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide both a cooked breakfast including your choice of bacon, eggs, sausages and beans, 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's one day off a week, only the continental breakfast will be provided.
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!
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's one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.
Children's High Tea
In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 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.
Children's High Tea in Chalet Hotels
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
Dinner in Chalets
A tasty and innovative, freshly cooked dinner will be prepared for you six nights per week by your Chalet Host or by an experienced and professional chef in our larger chalets and served with a choice of wines. Our four-course adult-only chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee with chocolates to round off your evening. Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service, and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.
Culinary Choice Dinners in Chalet Hotels
A special feature of our Chalet Hotels is a more extensive culinary experience for our guests. With the greater kitchen facilities of a hotel, our professional chefs are able to offer choices of menu at dinner freshly prepared for you six nights per week, generally including lighter as well as more hearty options, and always a vegetarian choice for each course. Guests will be asked to choose their evening meals at breakfast for that evening from a varied daily selection. Our Chalet Hotel adult-only dinners offer 5 courses for six nights per week, starting with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and a cheese selection to round off your meal in style. All this is then followed by coffee with chocolates to complete your evening's repast! Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.
Vegetarian and 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.
