“Terrible food and small portions”


written by Brett1275 on 02/04/2018

A group of 14 of us stayed in chalet cerise in the balcons 5 region at the beginning of February 2018 which was run by ski world. This was a fully catered chalet on ski worlds basic package.

The biggest issue was the evening meals. They were tasteless with very small portions. Everybody was filling up on bread and still feeling hungry at the end. Three courses were provided along with wine while we were eating. It did appear that the cheapest ingredients possible were used. The beef that was served one evening had more gristle than meat. This was the point we had had enough and asked for the management. The result from this was an extra person to help in the kitchen and given extra food. Though the extra food helped the quality did not improve. I think it was clear that the ladies running the chalet did not know how to cook the basic of meals. This I would maybe put down to Ski Worlds training or lack off.
Personally i found the wine so bad i didn’t drink it. I don’t expect much from wine in these places but I have never stayed anywhere with wine this bad. Cheapest of the cheap is my guess.

Breakfast consisted of cereals, bread, yogurts and a hot option. Porridge available on request. There were no patisseries. Self service tea, filtered or instant coffee was available. No fresh milk, this was all long life.

The chalet its self is in a great location to the slopes, some shops and a bar all within a few minutes walking distance.
The chalet was of an ok standard. Beds comfortable enough. Rooms were roasting at night even with the radiators turned off. Luckily each room had a door to the balcony so we could wedge it open at night. Not ideal but it worked.
There were two cupboards to leave skis and boards in just inside the front door. No boot drying available. Kept my boots in the bathroom as there wasn’t much space by the front door.

Definitely the worst food I’ve had in a chalet in over 19 years of ski holidays.
