Overview - chalet description - Chalet Valentine (Les Grandes Alpes) description

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

The Chalet Valentine is in La Rosiere sleeping just five guests, so it's only ever booked for sole use and adults and children take their evening meal together. It's perfect if you're seeking exclusivity as a family. It has its own external entrance within the Grandes Alpes building, where we have two other chalets.

Its position is hard to beat, being right next to the ski area used for the 3-4 year olds in our Spritelets classes, and with the main ski lifts less than 150m away. Our childcare bases for Nursery, Snow Club and evening Cocoa Club are similarly close by, and La Rosiere's charming centre with a few shops and restaurants is a short stroll too.

There are just two bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, plus there's an additional bathroom to share.The homely sitting room with log fireplace and TV/DVD is separate from the dining room which has a balcony offering beautiful views over the Tarentaise valley.

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 Valentine (Les Grandes Alpes)

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 at 5.30pm 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.

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), unless you are staying in a Family Dining chalet.

We update Chalet Valentine (Les Grandes Alpes)'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 Valentine (Les Grandes Alpes) in La Rosiere, France departs Sunday 12th April 2020, 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.

"Outstanding from start to finish"

Pollard Family
5/ out of 5
Having been on previous chalet holidays we would say that will has been head and shoulders above the rest. From start to finish it has been outstanding in every way. The team has been superb - extremely friendly and nothing has been too much trouble. Our boys haven't been to the Child Care /ski lessons before yet the way they've been looked after had meant they have been completely at ease throughout. Thank you to everyone for helping us have an amazing holiday.
