Overview - chalet description - Chalet Le Braconnier description

NB: This is a "family" chalet, so all bookings must include at least one child or teenager.

The design and location of Chalet Le Braconnier enable you to experience the most incredible views down the Tarentaise valley and across it to Les Arcs and Tignes.

Situated on the edge of the piste and a gentle 40m ski to the nearest lift this chalet is an ideal choice for skiing families, and offers an interior that is extremely well appointed and comfortable.
Its popularity can be gauged by the number of returning guests, so early booking is strongly recommended.

The owner and his family live on the upper floor.

There is also a sauna within the chalet and an outdoor hot tub. The owner has also build a wood-fired cosmic sauna so you can gaze at the stars whilst enjoying some therapeutic heat.

Ski Childcare & Children’s Ski Lessons

We have led the childcare concept for UK families on skiing holidays for the last 35 years and our programme is constantly reviewed and refined, with previous guest feedback always the key element in further enhancing the experience.

For parents, Classic Childcare means being able to leave your accommodation after breakfast to head for the first lifts, only needing to return after the last one shuts. We look after your children completely throughout the ski day if you wish.

While the babies and toddlers go to our Nursery, staff take the older ones to our partner ski-school, collect them, give them lunch, run activities to keep them happy and stimulated and then take them back to their chalets for their high tea, giving you our super-convenient ‘Seamless Service’ throughout the day.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Le Braconnier

We set high standards for our cuisine, training our staff extensively before the season starts to ensure that you will enjoy every meal.

One of the joys of choosing to take a catered chalet ski holiday is that you’re not doing the cooking. Our staff prepare and serve breakfast, afternoon tea and a 3 course evening meal including wine and coffee, on six days a week in our chalets on our staff day off, a continental breakfast will be provided for you.

The staff night off gives you a chance to sample some of the delicious local restaurants an ensure that you don’t leave the Alps without your fill of Weiner Schnitzel or Fondue! Our Baby Listening Service ensures that you can enjoy your meal out without worry.

Let us take care of the cooking and with the Baby Listening Service, all the family can sit back, relax and focus on the skiing!

Breakfast

In all our properties breakfast is served buffet-style with a selection of cold options including a choice of cereals or porridge, cold meats, cheese and preserves, bread (and croissants in France), fruit juices, tea and coffee and a cooked breakfast of bacon, sausage, eggs and beans.

On the staff day off, a continental style breakfast is laid out for you to help yourselves in all chalets.

Afternoon Tea

Every day, apart from our staff day off, a home-baked cake and tea and coffee making facilities are laid out for you to help yourself when you return from the slopes.

Chalet Meals

High Tea between 5pm and 6pm is served as a 2 course evening meal for all children under 11 as many parents prefer to enjoy adult-only company over dinner. Parents are asked to accompany their children under 3, whilst 3-10 years old are supervised by our childcare team.

Adult dinner at 7.30pm comprises 3 courses including an appetiser, main dish and dessert, preceded by a prosecco apéritif, accompanied by a choice of red, rose and white wines, and culminating with tea or coffee.

If it's important to you to eat dinner altogether as a family, we offer Family Dining in any chalet when you book the entire chalet for exclusive use. Dinner is then served from 6:30pm with the menu based on our adult dishes with some flexibility for the children's preferences. There is a supplement of £39 per child for Family Dining.

Dinner on staff days off for all guests

On the staff night off you and your family have the opportunity to eat out in one of the local restaurants. Our staff will be happy to help with recommendations and bookings if you wish. If you would prefer, you can always order in a takeaway pizza, and have a relaxing evening in.

Children’s High Tea

High Tea provides children under 11 with a healthy menu, but tailored more towards children’s tastes than our main adult dinner, and puréed food is also always available for infants on request. Parents are asked to accompany their children under 36 months at High Tea please, whilst children from 3-10 years will be supervised by staff.

Special Diets

Vegetarian options 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.

Christmas & New Year Celebrations

All our chalets offer traditional fare for Christmas dinner, with roast turkey and all the trimmings, Christmas pudding, mince pies, crackers, party hats and of course a pre-dinner glass of Champagne plus a lively, fun atmosphere for all the family.

This is the one meal that all families share together regardless of children’s ages, so in some properties the dining tables can be quite crowded, but this adds to the festive ambience of all celebrating together!

A special festive menu followed by Champagne is also served on New Year’s Eve, but this is for adults only (and those aged 11 and over of course).

We update Chalet Le Braconnier'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 Le Braconnier in La Rosiere, France departs Saturday 29th January 2022, 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.
