Overview - chalet description - Chalet La Brêche description

This chalet has one of the best locations in Alpe d’Huez just to the side of the piste close to the ‘Telecentre’ lift. The Tourist Office is nearby, as well as a good selection of bars and shops.

The style is that of a traditional Scandinavian chalet yet with a beautiful contemporary feel. There has been much thought into the planning of the building with little ‘extras’ like modern wooden bath tubs, double basins and heated towel rails in the en suite bathrooms.

There are two infra-red saunas on the lower ground floor, as well as a table tennis table, and a hot-tub outside on the terrace where you can relax and watch the sun go down at the end of a fantastic ski day.

We are sure that this chalet will continue to be a very popular choice with guests.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet La Brêche

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.

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 day off, only the continental breakfast will be provided.

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 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.

Children's High Tea

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.

Dinner in Chalets

In the evenings our hosts will cook you a three-course adult only meal six nights a week. This starts with a glass of prosecco followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert – with unlimited complimentary red, white and rosé wine during service! There is also an option for vegetarians, please warn us in advance.

One of these meals will be a regional meal with the menu depending on which country you are staying in.

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 for recommendations and help with reservations.

Vegetarian and Special Diets

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.

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!

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. 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!

We update Chalet La Brêche'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.

With a transfer time of around 2 hours, Alpe d’Huez is very accessible from Grenoble airport. Established in 1936, it was the first resort in France to be installed with a fully operational ski lift. The resort lies in the Grandes Rousses Massif domain and it is partnered by the smaller mountain villages of Auris-en-Oisans, Villard Reculas, Oz-en-Oisans, Vaujany and La Garde, all of which are connected by a free transport system. The slopes are mainly south facing and as a result the area, known as “L’ile ...
Alpe d’Huez has had sun and snow galore since 1936. And with a whopping 52km of greens, this is an excellent place for beginners. The easiest skiing is above the village and Les Bergers and there are plenty of wide open runs underneath the DMC gondola, many being ‘beginners only’ so you can learn without too much traffic. If you’re feeling confident, try some of the blue runs coming down from the main mountain and the signal sector back into Alpe d’Huez. There is a really impressive selection of runs for ...
If you like live music, try the Underground in Vieil Alpe, which combines a pleasant atmosphere with bands playing most nights. Smithys tavern is a proven success in the neighbouring resort of Les Deux Alpes and the Smithy’s in Alpe D’Huez has drinks promotions and healthy portions of Tex-Mex to match. If you can’t bear to miss an important game whilst in France then The Sports Bar is the best spot to watch live sports. L’igloo is the place to go if you want to party late into the night. Alpe d’huez has a...

"Lovely chalet"

Happy Skier, Watford
5/ out of 5
The chalet’s lovely. It was clean and warm and our chalet host was really nice. We had nice food (including a special 4 course meal on New Year’s Eve) and were well looked after throughout the week. It was easy to get to the lifts and we could ski back down to the building. If I did have to have a negative (and I’d be really scratching for one) it’s that the rooms could have done with soundproofing. The walls were very thin so noise really travels through the rooms. As it happened the other people in the chalet were very nice and the kids were good as gold. Our room was fine, there’s a boot room downstairs so we didn’t have any trouble with storage. We used the table tennis table down in the basement and the chalet also has a sauna and hot tub, which we didn’t use but some of our group did – they were there if you wanted them and everything worked as it should. Overall a very nice week!

"Brilliant chalet. Brilliant location. Great for big groups."

It’s a great chalet. Our two hosts, a couple, were absolutely fantastic, I truly can’t rave about them enough. The location’s brilliant as it really is ski in, ski out if you have the snow. We could ski down and in literally a minute we’d be at the yoghurt pot lift that takes you to the main area. The only downsides: there are no showers, and proper men in little wooden tubs just doesn’t work! For a group of 16 people, the sitting area (there’s only one) is pretty tight and we couldn’t all sit there together. I don’t know if they could extend it but it would make the chalet a lot better if they did. The dining room however was fine and we could all sit and eat together comfortably. Other than this, it’s excellent and I would highly recommend it for big groups.

"Ok, not great"

We had a good week. The location is good, chalet itself was a bit tired but ok… I wouldn’t say the food was particularly great. It would have been nicer to have fresh baguettes rather than the frozen part bakes that you can buy in England (we ended up going down and buying some). On a couple of days the cake was burned. The chalet wasn’t cleaned – we thought the rooms would be checked over every day and they weren’t… And when we arrived there was an ash tray full of cigarettes left on the balcony.

If you like the look of a trad’ Scando-chic chalet with all the mod-cons, you won’t find a better base for your holiday in Alpe d’Huez than the beautifully finished La Breche. We just love the outdoor hot tub and free wifi means you can Tweet your pics of relaxing in and drinking bubbles at the end of the day. NB if the hot tub or wifi are essential to your holiday, be sure to ask us to check before you book, because chalet specs and features can sometimes change.
