Changes due to Covid-19
This year, we anticipate that a lot of our guests will choose to self-drive to get here, either directly from the UK, or hiring cars at Geneva airport.
Consequently, airport transfers from Geneva airport are now not included in our prices. Our prices have been updated and reduced to reflect this.
Self-driving reduces the risk of exposure to the virus, and gives you flexibility.
It also avoids the difficult situation which arose to one of our UK groups who were unable to come this Summer as their flights to Geneva, Switzerland were cancelled, while travelling UK to France was still allowed.
If you do choose to fly and would like airport transfers, then we highly recommend Mountain Dropoffs.
They have been our transfer partner for over ten years, and follow an excellent Covid protocol.
This Winter whilst preparing and serving your food, we will be following strict Covid protocols, such as wearing masks, and washing hands frequently.
We also implement a strict weekly Covid cleaning protocol as part of our end of stay cleaning which includes cleaning, then disinfecting all common (and some not so common) surfaces that our guests touch. All our laundry is professionally dry cleaned. We also supply hydroxyalcoholic solution for our guests, and a supply of masks is available for guest use too.

Although we like to prepare gourmet chalet food that rivals the best local restaurants, we realise how important it is to cater for your group's tastes. So, if your group are adventurous foodies and want to experience "Armagnac Snail Fricassé, served with Tomato and Fennel Ragout in Fennel Seed pastry cases on a bed of Fennel Purée" we can provide. Or, if your group would prefer 'simpler' food - eg pasta, lasagne, cottage pie - please let us know - this is no problem as we prefer to change our menus and receive empty plates back!

Whether you are vegetarian,vegan, hallal, gluten-free, or have a nut allergy, or any other dietary requirement, do not worry.
