1 October 2018 – Why Self Catering

You might be wondering why we are running such a lovely chalet as a Self-Catered one, but have you ever come home from a fantastic week of fresh air and exercise in the mountains feeling like you need to go on a diet, or perhaps you have come home regretting that you have not had as much opportunity as you might have liked to try out more of the local fayre.

These are just a few of the reasons why some of the better chalet owners are now turning to Self-Catering. Gone are the days when you had to be squeezed into a grotty rabbit hutch of an apartment to be able to Self-Cater, now it is possible to stay in beautiful surroundings and to have more control over what you eat and when you eat it.

We will provide you with a continental breakfast (6 days of the week) of fruit, cereal, fresh bread and pastries, fruit juice, coffee and tea. If you wish you can cook yourselves some eggs, or in fact what ever you fancy purchased from the various local food shops all of which are within only a few minutes walk of Chalet Caro.

You can head off for your day skiing with a freshly made picnic if that’s your choice for the day, or you can try out one of a huge range of mountain restaurants for lunch, meet up with friends and join them for a hearty meal without having to worry about what you might be eating in the evening, and whether or not you should indulge.

So, now you can freely enjoy lunch, and make your own choice on what or where you would like to eat in the evening.

Why not stop off at the patisserie on the way home to choose your afternoon tea, or you might like to visit one of the local speciality food shops, or the supermarket to choose your evening meal, whether it’s a light snack some evenings, or perhaps a full blown three course meal washed down with some local wine.

There will no doubt be at least one evening when you will want to eat out in one of the local restaurants (we can help you choose if you wish), perhaps for a savoyard meal, a tartiflette or maybe a fondue. Perhaps a juicey steak cooked on the open fire. There are many within only a few minutes walk of Chalet Caro, and others within a short taxi ride.

Alternatively we can arrange for you to have some pre-prepared meals delivered straight to the chalet for you to cook whenever you like, or if it’s a private chef that you’d like, then we can also arrange that (subject to availability).

So, why Self-Catered? Because it gives you (and your wallet) a lot more flexibility to choose what you eat, how you eat, when you eat, and even who you eat with.
