Meals - food and drink in Chalet La Foret

We know that one of the most important ingredients of any winter holiday is the food. At the end of a crisp day on the mountain, there is nothing better than sitting down with a glass of wine to enjoy a delicious three course evening meal and re-live the day's adventures.

To get you started every morning we provide a hearty buffet of cereals, fresh French bread and jams, boiled eggs, porridge, fresh fruit, yogurt, juices, tea, and coffee. On six mornings there is also a cooked option, such as bacon or sausage with scrambled eggs.

On your return from the slopes every day a delicious afternoon tea is provided of freshly baked cakes, bread and jams, and tea or coffee. On six evenings you will enjoy a wonderful three course evening meal accompanied by complimentary regional table wine. On the festive last evening of the week the meal is followed by a delicious cheeseboard of local specialities and complimentary port.

The majority of our chefs have gained their skills in restaurants and hotels around the world, and are keen to share with you the results of those experiences. Even though many return year after year, all are involved in our in-depth annual training programme to ensure they are able to meet the standards our clients have come to expect.

We update Chalet La Foret'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 La Foret in Les Arcs, France departs Tuesday 3rd January 2017, for a 5 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...

The location has to be the first thing to mention. In the village of Vallandry, you literally step out of the Chalets front door on to the piste that will take you down to the main Vallandry lift, opening up the whole Paradiski area. On the way home, again you can step straight from the piste back into the chalet. The communal and dining areas are well decorated and clean. The Chalet sleeps around 70 so there is a good mix of people to meet and eat with each night. The food was fantastic, always a great standard in their chalets. Afternoon tea was always good and plenty to go around. One excellent point about this valley is the cafe/bar attached. Great for a après ski drink without having to put your hat, gloves and scarf on again and march into town. Also good for a quick night cap. There is an in house boot hire, which for us is a must. Your get your boots organised quickly at the beginning of your holiday and there is no lugging your gear back to the hire shop on the last day of your holiday. Overall a fantastic chalet with friendly staff, great food and a location that cannot be bettered.

"Pluses and minuses of La Foret"

We had a really good week overall, it had plus points and minus points… The staff were absolutely fantastic and clearly very happy in their jobs – some of the team had been coming back for a couple of years and the manager had been working there for ages. They all raved about their jobs and genuinely enjoyed them which was nice to see. There were a few things we would have wanted to improve. The cleanliness of our room wasn’t fantastic. We had to ask for our towels to be changed when we got there as they were stained. We had a quad room with 2 beds on a mezzanine floor and the carpet up there was absolutely filthy with stains which was quite unpleasant. The cleaners came in every day and did their jobs but things really needed a thorough clean/replacing. The rest of the chalet hotel is nice and well laid out. It’s definitely ski in ski out; you can’t argue with that. One thing we did find a bit hard was that the route you have to ski down got incredibly icy by the end of the day as it’s such a well-used trail. It was even quite icy in the mornings so nervous skiers or beginners might be put off. There wasn’t an easy alternative if you didn’t want to ski, it was quite a trek that wasn’t most pleasant. Vallandry itself was fine for us, but if you wanted a lot of après ski it might not be the best place for you. The food was kind of average, not amazing but at the same time there was nothing wrong with it. Real foodies who wanted great meals every night would have been disappointed, but I’ve definitely had worse food on chalet holidays. In terms of the people there, we met a nice mix of people which suited us. It was outside of the school holidays so there wasn’t loads of families, but I would imagine in the holidays would be popular for families because of the quad rooms. One thing to mention is that the WiFi wasn’t fantastic in the hotel. You really truly couldn’t get it in the bedrooms and had to be in the social area. It was the same with Sky TV – as soon as it started snowing you couldn’t access it. Not a major problem but worth knowing! The ski hire shop were fantastic and having that on site made a difference. They don’t have a huge range of equipment but the guy there is absolutely brilliant. He helped my friend to fix her snowboard and she hadn’t even hired it from him, and he gave us loads of advice on the resort. All in all, I would definitely recommend the chalet hotel and all things considered I would stay here again.
