After a fun-filled, action-packed day on the mountain, we don’t think that there’s anything better than to come back to the mouth-watering aroma of a home-baked cake and the promise of a delicious three-course meal. It’s why we take food and drink very seriously in our chalets!
We are true foodies at heart, and you can expect the very best in treats for your stay. If you’ve ever stayed with us before you’ll know that our talented chefs and chalet hosts pride themselves on their top-notch food and service, and we love to get praise from happy, well-fed guests at the end of the week.

Alpine Elements Chalet Service
Our chalet hosts win praise galore from our guests! They’re hand-picked for their vibrant and friendly natures and always on hand to help your holiday run as smoothly as they can. They will lay out breakfast each morning, bake cakes or biscuits for afternoon tea and cook a delicious three-course evening meal for six nights of your week.
For staff days off, a simpler continental breakfast is provided and for dinner, you are free to explore the local restaurants or grab a takeaway pizza.
Our hosts will also clean the chalet's public areas for you each day (except staff days off) and generally help and look after you as best they can. For reasons of privacy, we only clean bedrooms, bathrooms and en-suites twice a week.
Alpine Elements Hotel Service
Our exclusive Alpine Elements hotels are run by us and we pride ourselves in creating a relaxed but professional atmosphere with a diligent team always on hand to help in any way they can. Our brilliant team will serve breakfast each morning with yummy cooked options and freshly made cakes or biscuits as you return from the lakes and mountains, then prepare a delicious three or five course evening meal.
For staff day off, a continental breakfast is still provided. And for dinner, you’re free to explore the local restaurants or grab a takeaway pizza.
