Meals - food and drink in Chalet Petit Ours

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 Petit Ours'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.

Les Arcs came to be in 1968 after a group of ski instructors and architects dreamt up a resort with all the perks of a village but a mountainside location. It grew into one of the largest, most incredible ski areas in the Alps. The closest airport is Chambery with a transfer time of a couple of hours and there are various transport links from Geneva, Lyon and Grenoble too. Present day Les Arcs consists of four main purpose built villages. The original resort, Arc 1600, was created for doorstep skiing and is di...
As you'd expect from one of the biggest ski areas on the planet, there's everything from gorgeous tree-lined runs to wild, white-knuckle 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. Local instructors are on hand to show you the ropes, with ski schools based in each of the main villages (1800 has the most). There are magic carpet lifts at 1800 and 2000 - an easy way for newbies...
If you’re looking for a party, Arc 1800 is hands down the place to be. It's hosted events like the legendary Snowbombing festival over the years and has oodles of watering holes like the Red Hot Saloon (or the 'Red Bar' to use local lingo). If you’re looking for more of a French style après spot, Ambiente has a really cool atmosphere and lots of nice cocktails (happy hour usually starts at 4!) while Le club 1950 your venue if you’re looking to party into the wee hours. Arc 1600's a little quieter but for goo...

"Family holiday April 2016"

The Campbell Family
4/ out of 5
The chalet was absolutely fine; the best thing was probably the nice warm showers! The food was good, especially the panna cotta which the kids liked. We tended to have cereal and croissants in the mornings which was nice. As usual the bedrooms were a bit cramped, but given we were on holiday and not moving in, they were fine. We stayed here right at the end of the season and it was a fair walk from there to the slopes, which was a bit difficult with kids. Either you had to get the lifts up, or there was a very busy tow. It wasn’t a disaster, but it’s certainly not as easy as ski in, ski out.

This cosy chalet has a wraparound balcony but actually great views can be enjoyed from several rooms. It's located on the third floor with an open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area where everyone can congregate and chew the fat. For ultimate convenience, the building/complex has a ski shop right under the chalet apartments and you can easily access the lifts within a short walk. The same can be said of the local pub and swimming pool nearby (the pool was allowing guests from this chalet when we last checked, but make sure you ask before you book, if that's important to your holiday). The bus stop is close by if you wish to explore the rest of the resort.
