The chalet was generally pretty good. There were probably one or two small things that weren’t ideal. The set up with the chalet staff – there were staff coming and going whenever they pleased, including ones who weren’t looking after us who we didn’t know. It made the atmosphere a bit strange as you coul... + more

Meals - food and drink in Chalet L’Ours Andin

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 L’Ours Andin'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.

This package holiday to Chalet L’Ours Andin in Les Arcs, France departs Sunday 16th December 2018, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Les Arcs was established in 1968 and is located in one of the largest ski areas in the Alps. The closest airport is Chambery with a transfer time of around 2 and half hours and there are various transport links from Geneva, Lyon and Grenoble too. Present day Les Arcs consists of 4 purpose built villages. The original resort, Arc 1600, was purpose built for doorstep skiing and is directly linked by a funicular from Bourg St Maurice. Arc 1800 lies to the east as you look up the mountain and is quite the contr...
The ski area has everything from gorgeous tree-lined runs to steep off-piste. For beginners, each of the 3 main Arcs has “ski tranquille” zones and the wide beginner runs leading to the resort have gentle gradients that are perfect for practicing after ski school. There are also magic carpets at 1800 and 2000 - an easy way for beginners to get up the mountain without having to tackle button lifts. A number of runs are accessible via free beginner lifts, including a short lift at the bottom of Arc 1800. The ...
If you’re looking for a party, Arc 1800 is definitely the liveliest village in resort. It has previously been home to the legendary Snowbombing festival and has loads of bars and restaurants to choose between. Amongst its best is the Red hot saloon bar, known locally as the “Red Bar”. If you’re looking for more of a French style après bar, Ambiente has a really cool atmosphere and lots of nice cocktails while Le club 1950 is the place to be if you’re looking to party into the small hours. Arc 1600 is a lit...

"Great chalet, let down by the host"

Mrs Hancock, North Yorkshire
3/ out of 5
The actual chalet was really good and I would give it a 5/5. It was all very clean and we had plenty of hot water. All the bedrooms were en-suite and had enough storage. You could ski down to the slopes and we’d had a big pile of snow so the skiing was easy. The ski hire was right underneath the chalet so it was all very convenient. However the host, an 18 year old lad on a gap year, just didn’t know what he was doing or how to communicate with anyone. The worst bit was that he had loads of his friends coming in and out, banging doors when the children were nearby. The children were old enough to know not to leave the chalet, but he always left the door on the latch which I wasn’t very comfortable with, especially at night. He was also quite rude, the kids tried to engage with him and we’d try and chat to him but he wouldn’t interact. It was really nice being all together, although we weren’t allowed to eat together which was a bit of a shame. We were meant to have a 4 course meal with chocolate and coffee at the end but it didn’t appear – the host said he had forgot but then he didn’t do anything about it. Although we had to wait a while for the second course, the food was lovely and the waiting didn’t bother us too much.

"A fab Christmas in Les Arcs"

Kate Burrows, Newport
4/ out of 5
Our Christmas here was fab! The chalet itself is really convenient, the food was great and the staff were fab – I don’t think there was anything we could have moaned about. We couldn’t have asked for more. They really went out of their way at Christmas, the rep arranged for another guy to come as Santa and leave footprints in sugar by the fireplace, and they had a Santa in the foyer giving out chocolates. From the resort point of view, trying to get up the slope to get to the lift was difficult for the children and older people in our group. Other than that I can’t fault it. The ski shop is right underneath the chalet which was useful. Bedrooms were all fine.

"Pretty good chalet"

Adrian
4/ out of 5
The chalet was generally pretty good. There were probably one or two small things that weren’t ideal. The set up with the chalet staff – there were staff coming and going whenever they pleased, including ones who weren’t looking after us who we didn’t know. It made the atmosphere a bit strange as you couldn’t really relax. The layout was good enough, although you had to walk through the kitchen to reach two of the bedrooms (could be a bit difficult when they were people in the kitchen) – however that’s just nitpicking! The food was great, and the location was only a short walk from the closest lift. The Whistler bar is pretty close and we all enjoyed it there.

"Ground floor fast access to the slopes"

Jimmy, Sno Staff
5/ out of 5
With the easiest access to the piste and lifts, this chalet is located on the bottom floor which is only 3 minutes’ walk away from the slopes and the free swimming pool (must check before you book) across the way where you can relax. The chalet is cosy and warm, furnished to high quality with its open living area and fire place. It's a nice place to stay when skiing the Paradiski domain.
