Chalet L’Orchidée is an excellent modern chalet with stylish décor and a fantastic large spa area for the sole use of Orchidée guests.
This spacious chalet was truly built with relaxation in mind: after skiing you can sit quietly with a magazine in the spa area, ease your aching muscles in the huge mosaic-tiled steam room or sink deep into the hot tub before an aperitif in the lounge in front of the stylish wood burning stove.
After dinner, or to keep the kids occupied, the mezzanine level has a huge flatscreen TV on which to watch DVDs.
Orchidée is an extremely popular chalet so get in while you can!
Your day starts with freshly brewed tea or coffee (don’t worry, we bring real teabags from the UK) and a spread of fresh crusty baguette and jams, yoghurt, fruit and cereals on the table. The cooked breakfast menu changes every day but includes bacon, sausages, eggs, French toast, grilled tomato, succulent mushrooms, Heinz baked beans…
Once you’ve returned from your tough day on the slopes, homemade afternoon tea is served and favourites range from classic treats such as scones with cream and jam to squidgy brownies or raspberry and white chocolate cupcakes. In the evening we let our experienced hosts use their imaginations and the fantastic fresh produce we have to create a mouthwatering 3-course menu for the week.
We now serve canapes prior to each of the five chalet dinners. On Sunday they are accompanied by Champagne and on other catered nights a local "methode traditionelle" produced by our friend and winemaker Nicolas Perret. It's a delicious, light fizz with very few wine miles as it is made just down the valley! Our experienced hosts use the fantastic fresh produce we have to create a mouthwatering 3-course menu for the week.
Unlimited red, rosé and white wines (from bottles, not boxes!) are served through dinner, with coffee and chocolates in the lounge after your meal.
In line with other chalet operators we are moving to 5 days catering.
