The chalet hotel is a bit dated, but it’s really clean and we paid a very reasonable price. Our room was the smallest with shorter beds than other rooms – it wasn’t ideal for me and my girlfriend as we couldn’t put the beds together but the staff made a big effort and brought another bed up for us. It wa... + more

The staff were really good and the food was excellent. Breakfast was good and dinner was modern English food with healthy options like fish and veg. The rooms and bathrooms themselves were a little old fashioned and dark... very clean, just a little on the dark and dowdy side. The pool was brilliant - the kids ... + more

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Sonneck description

NB: Next year chalet catering will be 5 nights catered not 6, for winter 2018/2019 (i.e. guests eat out 2 nights, if staying in this property).

Xtra Chalet Sonneck occupies one half of a beautiful traditional style building, situated at the northern edge of Lech, in the Stubenbach part of the resort, and offering well fitted bedrooms, all with en suite facilities, and many with balcony or terrace. There is a lovely wood-panelled dining-room, with spectacular views over the village and surrounding peaks, fronted by the superb sun-terrace – a favourite spot for watching the sun go down, with your choice of apres ski drink.

The atmospheric, candle-lit bar, with its old wooden beams, offers the best value in town, and is run exclusively for guests, making it a lovely spot for a few après ski drinks or an after-dinner party and you can also relax in the spacious lounge area.

Access to the main lifts and resort centre about 1500m away is exceptionally easy. A free daytime bus service runs only 15m from the chalet door every 20 minutes until 7.20pm, after which the ‘James’ taxi/bus runs every 30 minutes at a flat rate of around £3 per person.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Sonneck

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. For six days of the week for our 2017/18 season, and five days of the week for 2018/19, our staff prepare all your meals, as described below.

Breakfast

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's day(s) off, only the continental breakfast will be provided.

Piste Picnics

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!

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 on the staff's day(s) off. 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.

Dinner

2017/18 season cuisine

A three-course adult-only chalet dinner starts with Prosseco, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee to round off your evening. Your choice of complimentary quality red and white wines is unlimited during the meal service, and chilled water is also of course always available.

2018/19 season cuisine

Our hosts will cook you a three-course adult only meal 5 nights a week. Consisting of an appetiser, main course and dessert – with unlimited complimentary red, white and rosé wine during service! The staff nights off are a great opportunity to experience some local restaurents and cuisine. Speak to your resort representative for recommendations and help with reservations.

Our Quality Wines

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. In our Chalet Hotels we also offer an additional light fresh rosé to our guests’ choice. 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!

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.

Vegetarian and Special Diets

Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets - 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.

Christmas and New Year

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!

NB: Next year chalet catering will be 5 nights catered not 6, for winter 2018/2019 (i.e. guests eat out 2 nights, if staying in this property).

We update Chalet Sonneck'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.

Known as one of the classic ski resorts, Lech is part of the ‘Best of the Alps’ group. Also crowned 2004’s Prettiest Village in Europe, it oozes traditional alpine charm with the bonus of a world-class ski area and some of the best snow in the Alps. The resort’s superior status in the skiing world has made it a favourite of the rich and Royal for decades – Princess Di used to ski here and sharing a chairlift with Tom Cruise or Vladimir Putin is a real possibility... The uber-posh town has an exclusive feel,...
This is famously the setting of the hilarious skiing scene in ‘Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason’, although you won’t have any Bridget-like disasters on the piste if you take advantage of the excellent instruction and beginner slopes on offer. You’ll find some lovely nursery slopes behind the village church (you can’t miss it) and up around Oberlech to practice on until you feel confident enough to take the Schlegelkpof and explore some brilliant gentle terrain for skiers and snowboarders. With oodles of...
Jägertee (rum, black tea and spices) is the local’s drink of choice, making it a must-try when you’re back from the slopes. Most of the nightlife here reflects Lech’s status as a first class resort, with venues emitting high-end and exclusive feel. While it doesn’t have the same legendary reputation as the après in neighbouring St Anton, you can still find a brilliant variety of venues offering a mix of the traditional and contemporary – chop and change between traditional tea dances and late night clubbi...

"Dated chalet but really well looked after, amazing staff!"

Will, North Yorkshire
4/ out of 5
The chalet hotel is a bit dated, but it’s really clean and we paid a very reasonable price. Our room was the smallest with shorter beds than other rooms – it wasn’t ideal for me and my girlfriend as we couldn’t put the beds together but the staff made a big effort and brought another bed up for us. It was really nice to have our own shower and an en-suite. We were ill for the first day and the staff really looked after us, making sure we had medicine and everything we needed. The bar in the actual chalet was good and there’s also a swimming pool and sauna which were both really nice (although the pool was cold). The food they did was really good, an endless amount of stuff with loads of variation, great starters and mains followed by different desserts. Breakfast was always good and they did a cooked option. I’d definitely rate it for the food. This isn’t the most central chalet in Lech, but Lech is really exclusive and you’d be paying mega bucks to be in the middle. You literally just walk down and get the bus to the skiing and you can ski back to the centre of Lech on most slopes and the bus stops near all of them. There’s a nice supermarket in the village so you can ski down, grab some snacks and get the bus home.

"Bit old fashioned but overall good - kids loved the pool!"

The staff were really good and the food was excellent. Breakfast was good and dinner was modern English food with healthy options like fish and veg. The rooms and bathrooms themselves were a little old fashioned and dark... very clean, just a little on the dark and dowdy side. The pool was brilliant - the kids loved it and the sauna was fantastic too. The location wasn’t bad; a lot of people end up having to use the bus in Lech. The bus stop is only a couple of minutes from the chalet which takes you into town, where you have the option of one cable car and one lift.

This is a great chalet hotel and known for its terrific value for money in one of the world's best skiing resorts. The large sun-terrace has beautiful views of the mountains, or you can enjoy the ambience of the comfy lounge area with an open hearth. It had an indoor swimming pool and sauna when we last received client feedback in 2013/14 where you can relax those muscles at the end of a long day but be sure to check this is still the case before you book, if its important to your holiday. With the bus stop right outside the door it is easy to explore the whole resort and enjoy some of the fun après ski Lech has in store, or take you right to the lifts where you will be up the hill skiing in no time. Remains one of the more popular places to stay in an already super popular town.
