Chalet Cuisine - Our food & drink
Whether you are seeking a catered or self-catered chalet holiday, you can be sure that you will enjoy some fantastic food whilst staying in Samoens...
Catered Chalet Holidays - Hearty, wholesome and local
Fresh mountain air certainly gives you an appetite - and a thirst! So we will make sure you're well fed and watered throughout your stay.
We love food and feel that it is an important part of your holiday. Throughout winter, we employ a professional chef to provide you with wholesome, hearty food, drawing on British, French and Mediterranean influences, using local ingredients where possible. We also take great pride (and pleasure) in sampling local wines to ensure our guests can enjoy the pick of the cellar. Quality house wine will be served every evening with your meal.
You can also take advantage of our 'honesty bar' where you can help yourself to beer, wine and spirits. Champagne and other alcoholic (and non-alcoholic) drinks can be provided on request.
Enjoying good food and drink is a big part of your stay. So we'll always aim to ensure the menu is to your taste. If you have any special requirements, please let us know and we'll do our best to cater for them.
In keeping with ski chalet tradition, one night of the week will be your opportunity to sample one of the local restaurants (while we have an evening off). We can advise you on choosing a suitable restaurant and make the booking on your behalf if you wish.
A premium breakfast-in-bed service with bucks fizz and smoked salmon can be pre-ordered - perfect for special occasions or if you fancy treating yourself! Please contact us for a quote.
Your wake up call
To get you off to a great start, we can bring tea or coffee up to your room first thing.
Traditional French breakfast
Tuck into fresh bread, croissants and coffee, tea or hot chocolate (with a cooked option available too) to set you up for a day on the slopes.
After an energetic day on the mountain, break for afternoon tea with homemade cakes, a cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate.
Relax as we serve a four course evening meal (three in summer as it's warmer!), with starter, main course, dessert and a cheese course, accompanied by quality house wines.
For summer activity holidays a packed lunch is included on 5 days so that you can maximise you time on the mountains.
For other holidays, for a small additional cost, we can also provide you with a packed lunch for the mountain. Ideal if you don't want lunch to interrupt your skiing or riding.
Self-catered - A taste of the Savoyard summer
Some of our chalets are also available on a self-catered basis throughout the year. This means you can look forward to enjoying the fabulous local produce as well as sampling the excellent food served in Samoens' restaurants and cafés.
As well as a small supermarché or two, the village boasts a number of delightful artisan shops, including charcuteries, a fromagerie and, of course, a number of boulangeries & patisseries. The daily ritual of fetching fresh bread every morning is, of course, something to be relished when in France.
Wednesday is market day in the village and, in the summer months, stalls are brimming with all manner of fresh, regional produce.
Depending on your requirements during your stay, we also offer the following services:
- Welcome hamper - we provide a complimentary welcome hamper on arrival with a tempting selection of local sundries as well as a home baked cake.
- Evening meals - if you wish, we can come to your chalet to cook your evening meal (and do the washing up!) We have a variety of menus and options to suit you.
- Picnics, packed lunches, BBQs - just let us know what you want, we'll deliver it to the chalet for you.
- Shopping service - we can do a full shop for you before you arrive, so you're stocked up from day one.
In order for you to get a holiday that suits you, we will look to tailor these options to suit you so please feel free to contact us to discuss your needs.
As one of our team is a vegetarian (Steve), we're more than happy to cater for vegetarians and vegans. And don't worry - it won't be a cheese fondue every night! If you have any special dietary requirements, please let us know when you contact us to book.
