Meals - food and drink in Chalet Schatzi

With a skiers’ buffet breakfast to start your day, afternoon tea to welcome you ‘home’, and 4- or 5-course evening meals with wine and coffee included to complete the evening, our chalets and Chalet Hotels provide by far the best value accommodation in the Alps!

We set high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that guests will enjoy every meal with us.

For six days of the week in both chalets and Chalet Hotels, our staff prepare all your meals for you. The majority of parents feel that young children can inhibit the dinner-party atmosphere at evening meals, especially if they are over-tired, so children under 13 years are served High Tea at around 5.30pm in our chalets and Chalet Hotels alike. They are not then permitted to join adult dinner, as they are generally happier either getting some rest ready for tomorrow’s adventures, or if 6 years old or more, joining our child care staff in Cocoa Club.

On their one day off per week, your host in chalets will prepare a Continental-style breakfast which will be left for you to help yourselves, whilst in Chalet Hotels, a full buffet breakfast will still be served to you as normal. That evening, you and your family then have the chance to eat out in one of the local cafés or restaurants, which your Representative will be happy to help you arrange.

Breakfast

A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide our chalet guests a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, and boiled eggs. This is normally presented buffetstyle for you to help yourself.

In addition to all the above, our Chalet Hotels and NEW this year in all our chalets, a hot dish, such as scrambled eggs on toast, or home-made pancakes with maple syrup is also offered.

Piste Picnics

Our Chalet Hotel teams can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge. For those keen to keep their Eurospending 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 the team’s one day off each week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake – different every day and our Chalet Hotels also feature a selection of cakes for you to choose from.

Children’s High Tea

High Tea provides children under 13 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 3-12 years will be supervised by staff.

Adult Dinner in Chalets

In all our chalets, our four-course dinners for adults (and children 13 and over only) start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert. The meal is accompanied by a choice of wines, unlimited during the meal service, with freshly chilled water also always available, and followed by complimentary coffee or tea with chocolates to round off your evening.

Special Diets

Vegetarian options are always on our ‘Culinary Choice’ menu in our Chalet Hotels, and 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.

Family Dining Chalets

For those families who prefer to eat together with their younger children, we offer our Family Dining option in any chalet of up to 12 beds, if you book the whole chalet for your own party, subject to chalet suitability. Everyone then eats together in the evening, starting at 6.30-7.00pm. The meals are based on our adult menus, with some flexibility for younger taste buds, although not a complete ‘à la carte’ choice!

The additional charge for changing meals to Family Dining is £39 per child.

We update Chalet Schatzi'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 Schatzi in La Rosiere, France departs Friday 16th December 2016, 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.

"Brilliant for families"

Suzanna Burroughs, Bromley
4/ out of 5
We rebooked this chalet for next year, that’s how much we liked it! It’s brilliant for beginners and children. The nursery slopes are right in front of the chalet, I could watch the children from our balcony! Our children were so happy with it, they kept asking us if we could come back, and they wanted to see the Esprit staff again – they liked them so much. The childcare gave us more freedom to ski, and the ski hosting over to Italy was great. We skied over to La Thuile nearly every day. We did look at other chalets for next year but Chalet Schatzi ticked so many boxes. The rooms are quite spacious, the room we had this time was bigger than we anticipated (unfortunately we couldn’t book the same room due this year due to availability). The décor is quite unique and personal, someone has made a load of montages which are displayed around the chalet. The artwork is interesting. The food wasn’t amazing, it varied in quality, but the potions were generous. The main courses were almost too big for me and there was a lot of meat. I have no complaints about this chalet at all, I have sold it to all my friends! The reason I haven’t given it a 5/5 is because it doesn’t have quite the same facilities as some of the top end chalets, such as spa facilities and swimming pools. But there is really nothing wrong with the chalet at all. There is a good bar right opposite the chalet, and you can sit outside there and watch your children on the nursery slopes as well.

"Perfect for families"

We all had a lovely week. The chalet’s perfect for families and the facilities are very good for children. The staff were great with the children and we all enjoyed the food they served which was a mix of meals - some nights we wanted the children’s meals as they looked so nice! The layout of the rooms worked really well for families and being able to ski in and out was perfect. We have no complaints at all, although as a suggestion it would have been nice if the adults could have some wine while the children sat down for their high tea (in the end we popped down to the shops for a couple of bottles as they couldn’t sell us any in the chalet).
