Compared to my hotel holiday in Serre Chevalier last year, Chalet Monet was much better.

The chalet was fine. It was very accessible, we liked the food and the staff were fine. The bedroom (room 8) was adequate, with slightly restricted sloping beam ceiling. It was fine for us but anyone over 5 foot 8 might have knocked their heads in the night. The social areas were more than enough to fit everyon... + more

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Monet 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).

The Monet is a gem of a chalet, conveniently located right in the heart of the resort, with a superb range of facilities.

The living areas are generous and well designed, with one large lounge with a small kitchenette area and plenty of sofas on the ground floor, plus a further, separate TV lounge for those who want to relax elsewhere after dinner, so don’t forget to pack your favourite DVDs.

Bedrooms here offer en suite bath or shower and wc, and some also have a balcony, as does the attractive dining-room on the first floor. The Monet also boasts its own sauna, and further après ski relaxation in the hot-tub on the large terrace.

The main Chavannes ski-lifts and piste and the delightful village centre are only approximately 3 minutes’ walk away, and at the end of the day you can ski back to the same point.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Monet

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 Monet'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 is as close to an alpine fairy tale as it gets. A beautiful resort tucked away between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, Les Gets’ charm comes from rustic wooden chalets, friendly locals and the inevitably cosy atmosphere a smaller village is able to offer. Situated just an hour from Geneva Airport, it’s perfect for those who don’t want to waste a chunk of their holiday travelling, as most people who fly in the morning are able to make it onto the slopes by mid-afternoon. This is also one of the closest res...
Les Gets has a number of ski schools, making it an excellent place for children and beginners - most have bi-lingual instructors, and the resort’s popularity with families means instructors are well versed in teaching children to ski. A designated beginner park called ‘Mappy’s Area’ is close the Chavannes cable car, with gentle slopes, several magic carpets and rope tows. There are good blue runs near the centre of town, and further up towards Chavannes, for any older learners who want to enjoy some of the...
Whilst the resort isn’t primarily known for a huge après ski scene, a choice of over 100 shops, bars and restaurants means there’s definitely fun to be had after a long day on the slopes. There are several lively bars and most will stay open until about 2am. The Irish pub is great for its friendly atmosphere, home-brewed beers, live music and great tapas. The Black Bear is child friendly, with a pool table, and the Black Bush hosts a range of fancy dress nights. If 2am isn’t late enough for you, Igloo nightc...

"A great holiday in Chalet Monet"

Steven Moore, Buckinghamshire
5/ out of 5
Compared to my hotel holiday in Serre Chevalier last year, Chalet Monet was much better. The group of people I stayed with were perfectly nice, we were a big group of around 20 including a family and some small groups of 2’s, 3’s and 4’s – everyone got on very well and I didn’t feel at all pressured or left out as a solo traveller. The Monet is literally five minute walk to where everyone kept their boots and skis, we could have kept them in the chalet’s dry room but we ended up using the ski hire shop which was right by the gondola. The chalet’s at one end of the town and the first shop and pub were about 50 yards down the road, which then stretched a mile down to the other end of the town with more bars and restaurants along the way. The food was very well prepared, very posh looking and well presented. Not all of the meals were to my taste but they were always well cooked with good sized portions. There were hosts on hand and it was so nice to just be able to ask if you wanted extra portions or anything else. The hosts and reps were very well organised and did a ‘Les Gets by night’ pub crawl, a quiz night and helped us find a nice meal on the chalet host’s night off – there was something you could do every night but there were no obligations to do so if you didn’t want to. I would definitely recommend a chalet holiday, the problem I found with the hotel I stayed in previously was that once you’d had dinner people would just go back to their rooms so you’d lose the ambiance. In a chalet you really get to know the people there as well as meeting people from other chalets on the organised events that you can then say hello to when you’re on the slopes.

The chalet was fine. It was very accessible, we liked the food and the staff were fine. The bedroom (room 8) was adequate, with slightly restricted sloping beam ceiling. It was fine for us but anyone over 5 foot 8 might have knocked their heads in the night. The social areas were more than enough to fit everyone in the chalet. The only problems we really had were the transfers. On the transfer up the driver hit the bus on a barrier going up the mountain. On the way back, we had a fairly early flight but the pick-up was ridiculously early. There was another coach going an hour later so we asked if we could be on that instead, the rep came back almost immediately saying no as the coach was full. After 2 hours at the airport we met people from the second coach, and they told us there had been plenty of free seats which was really annoying.

This bright and airy chalet is set in an ideal location and within a short walk to the lifts but crucially, also right in the heart of Les Gets, which is one of the friendliest little mountain towns in the French alps. After a long day skiing you can enjoy the private spa outside (check before booking) or wander into town for Chartreuse after supper. The hosts here are fantastic, providing multi-course dinners with a good quality wine selection to end the day.
