Changes to our Winter Chalet Holidays:

Last updated: 28 October 2020

Due to resurgence of COVID-19, and the increased levels of social distancing required, we are unfortunately having to make significant changes to our chalet holidays for this winter.

We are in the process of updating our website to reflect this. Here is a quick summary of the changes below. We will also be contacting all our guests whom are affected by this change.

Change #1 - Whole chalet bookings only

We will not be providing shared chalets this winter. We usually sell The Alpine Lodge, our flagship chalet on a room by room basis. For this winter will will only sell it on a whole chalet occupancy basis.

Change #2 - No hosted catered chalets

We will not longer be able to run our traditional catered chalet holidays with chalet hosts in the chalet with you. Instead, we'll be offering our chalets on a self catered basis, and then you can add-on a meal delivery services for the days you would like.The idea here is to remove the close contact a chalet host would bring by being in your chalet for extended periods.

How the meal delivery option works

Our chalets are booked as self-catered, and you can add on meal deliveries for as many days as you would like. We can provide your breakfasts and evening meals. When you arrive in the chalet we'll have stocked it with all the breakfast essentials such as milk, orange juice, cereals, butter, jam and yoghurts. Then each morning we'll deliver freshly baked baguettes, croissants and pain au chocolates. For evening meal you'll get two delicious courses, all full prepared ready for you to pop into the oven, serve and enjoy whenever you would like to eat. We'll do the deliveries each morning and leave it all at your front door to reduce the social contacts.

Your options if your holiday is affected

Firstly, we really are sorry to have to make these changes. We are so very proud if our catered chalet holidays and it's with a heavy heart that we have taken this decision.

If you have booked a catered chalet with us, we will be in touch with you. Your options are:

If you have any questions about your booking with us in the meantime please do get in touch.

Frequently Asked Questions

Last updated: 28 October 2020

Are there special cleaning procedures in place in the company?

Yes. There is a six hour vacancy of the chalet during changeover so we can deep clean and disinfect the chalet. We also regularly disinfect the commonly touched items throughout your stay in our catered chalets such as door handles, light switches and stair banisters.

Do I need to bring my own hand sanitiser?

We have hand sanitisers in all our chalets. We recommend bringing a small bottle with you though for when you are out of the chalet.

Yes, all our properties have access to a washing machine.

Are there rules in place for the public or shared areas in the buildings?

Yes, masks are mandatory in all the shared/public areas of our buildings which may be shared with other accommodations such as the ski rooms, stair cases, hall ways and fitness rooms.

No, there are no such regulations in France. Our chalets are classed as private spaces. The French government does not have any restrictions in private residences.

Masks are compulsory when queueing for ski lifts and whilst on ski lifts only.

Masks are required when walking around the village. They are also required in any public spaces such as restaurants, shops, bars & the tourist office.
