Overview

From fromage to fortune

There are some properties that don’t deserve to be forgotten. They have a certain je ne sais quoi about them that just won’t let them be left behind in the past. Dating back to 1632, this is certainly one such chalet. 

Starting life as a cheese farm run by local monks, it is safe to say that Chalet du Cret never intended to be a run of the mill, typically Savoyarde building left to crumble into history. Located in the picturesque tranquil hamlet of Le Cret, there was only one future aspiration in mind for that old farm. To become one of the most luxurious chalets in one of the World’s most luxurious ski resorts. This is a chalet that wants to stand out and be remembered and we know that that is exactly what your favourite days spent at Chalet du Cret will be. Truly cherished by each and every family member. Whether that be by your husband with a keen restorative eye, as he admires the abundant original features through to your youngest and the way their imagination is captured in the children's den. For you, it is the six individually decorated en-suite bedrooms, each with their own elegant modern twist and for Auntie who never wishes to step foot on a pair of skis, it’s the chalet’s chauffeur service to whisk her to and from Val D’Isere’s boutiques. 

Starting from the outside, so we can swiftly move back inside and leave the cold where it belongs, your gaze can’t help but be drawn to Chalet du Cret’s beautiful chapel that is nestled into the chalet’s idyllic grounds. This is a space where the children can run free and hone their inner snowman making tactics. Preparation can never start to early for Friday’s annual Jordan v Smith make off. Competitive? No, not your families, surely? 

When their fingers and toes start to feel the nip of winter, there will be no place better for them to warm up with a chocolat chaud than in their den featuring faux grass floors and climbable walls. This is a space to let creative minds run riot, all in the sanctuary of the ultimate hideaway. So private that not only will you require their favourite password to allow adults to venture in but also to allow you undisturbed peace and quiet to enjoy that most sacred hour – canapés and champagne by the fire.

Alongside the modern day flare of your professional chef, you are never far from being reminded of where Chalet du Cret has come from. Exposed beams and stonework and tactile brushed walls all remind you of the immediate history you have been immersed into this week. You know that there is even more to look forward to next year when you could be immersing yourself into the chalet’s revamped spa. You can almost hear the excitement exuding from Chalet du Cret’s basement at the thought of next year’s transformation into the ultimate luxe. Just like your husband’s wine glass is quivering in anticipation at the arrival of next winter’s glass fronted wine cave. You may have to turn the frivolous chat of two favourite weeks next year into a reality.

For now though, with the children tucked up in bed and having sweet dreams of all things snow related, why not be flippant and have a starlit dip in the outdoor hot tub? Your favourite days and nights were made for spontaneous moments like these and with the help of the dedicated team of staff at Chalet du Cret, this is where memories truly begin.

Reviews

WHAT WE THINK

The perfect combination of old and new - parts of the chalet date back to 17th century but it's been renovated for this winter (2017/18). Great location - peaceful but only a short walk (or even shorter drive) to the resort centre, lifts and slopes. The kid's playroom with its climbable wall, mean that this is the ideal choice for all ages.

Gastronome

Do you love food? I don't know many people that don't - there is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. But when that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience of high end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We hand-pick our chalet partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered ski chalets: 

A perfect start to the day

No need to rush out of bed - breakfast is laid on. A healthy array of fresh fruit juices, a selection of warming teas and coffee - yoghurts, crispy cereals, juicy fruit and a mouth-watering display of delicious fresh breads & delicate pastries. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? Full breakfast is served every morning. So much choice that you might miss the first ski lift if you're not careful. 

 

High tea temptations

Come back after a wonderful day on the mountain to the warmth and comfort of your chalet. Snuggle up on the comfy sofa in front of a crackling fire, with a steaming cup of tea and a generous serving of cake – this is how all afternoons should be. Your chef will prepare a fresh from the oven, sweet treat for your return, so whether your preference is for a hearty sticky Apple and Ginger cake or a delicate Mille-feuille aux framboise is more your thing, there will be something tempting waiting for you. Personally I don’t think you can beat a slice of crispy baguette with lashings of butter and dollops of apricot jam or nutella - but maybe that ‘s just me - the perfect comfort food.

 

Celebrate with Canapés 

When staying in a catered chalet every night feels like a special occasion, and why shouldn't it, you're on an amazing holiday and it's so good to be alive. You’re dressed and ready for a glass of something chilled with friends and family, ready to regale them with tales of your mountain adventures that may get a little exaggerated for dramatic effect with each rendition. Enjoy the delicious canapés and amuse-bouche freshly prepared by your star in the kitchen. 

 

Serving up a sensuous feast

Take a seat at your own private table - it's time for the main event – a delicious feast, masterfully crafted by your talented chef. With an emphasis on using hand-selected, fresh, local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt in your mouth three course dinner that wouldn't look out of place in a Michelin starred restaurant. Dinner is complimented by a tangy platter of divine local cheeses. Menus can be tailored to suit your tastes and your chef will be happy to prepare everything from a simple supper to fine dining delights. Dinner is served on 5 nights.

 

Let the good times flow 

The chalet provides beer, house wines, a drinks tray of 3 bottles of house spirits and mixers. Champagne is served with canapés on 5 nights of your stay.

 

Children & dietary requirements 

The chalet is happy to cater for specific dietary requirements, and will serve an earlier high tea for children (on 6 nights). You can talk to your SkiBoutique PA about any specific requests from dietary requirements such as gluten free diets to birthday cakes and favourite dishes. We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted and delivered in resort.
