Catered ski chalets used to be the norm, but now more and more people are opting for more flexibility in their ski holiday with self catered options. Self catering ski chalets are a great option if you like to go out to eat and want to try a few different restaurants throughout the week. Or on the contrary, if you have a big group and think it’d be more economical to cook family dinners. They’re also perfect if you’d like a mix of the two. Or if you’re just someone who doesn’t want to interact with anyone first thing in the morning and would prefer your own space.
If you’ve always done catered chalets, or haven’t done either and aren’t sure which to choose, here’s what you can expect from a self catered chalet.
All of the same pre-arrival services
The booking process and all the services we offer before you arrive in resort are exactly the same as when you book a catered chalet. We’re on hand from the first enquiry through booking, to preparing and arriving in resort. We’ll help make it as smooth and as stress-free as possible. We can also organise your lift passes, ski hire, ski school and book restaurants for you.
In resort, we’ll be on hand in case you need any assistance – so you aren’t totally left on your own!
A high-quality, cosy chalet
Gone are the days of tiny, budget apartments being the only self-catered options. Now, you can find cosy self catering ski chalet options that really feel like home away from home.
Our Chalet Dahu is situated right on the piste so you can ski-in and ski-out. It has a large open plan living and dining room centered around a log fire, and with six bedrooms, your whole group can join for the week. You can finish off the day sitting on the terrace that overlooks the La Tania pistes and enjoy a glass of rosé in the sun.
Although food is not included with your package, here’s what we at Ski Dazzle do include:
- Hot tub
- Ski-in ski-out location
- WiFi, bluetooth speaker & UK Freesat TV
- Linen, bath towels & robes
- Boot warmer
- Log fire
We also provide a welcome hamper with the essentials to get you started when you arrive. And if you’re looking for a few more extras, we offer the following services to make your stay a little bit easier.
You can opt for daily bread delivery service that includes baguettes, croissants and pain au chocolates. We can also offer wine, beer and soft drinks delivery at a very reasonable price – which is convenient when you don’t have a vehicle. We also have a raclette evening on Tuesday nights. Opt for a traditional Savoie dinner that you can prepare yourself in your own chalet. We deliver the machine and all the ingredients needed.
Why book self catered?
At the end of the day it all comes down to personal preference. Whereas some people prefer not having to think about meals and having a chef prepare them all for you, others like the flexibility to eat what and when they like. Stay late at the Folie Douce one afternoon. Cook dinner early if everyone is starving. Or just head out to a restaurant. You can do what you wish in a self catered chalet, with no schedule to adhere to.
