Catering Information for Chalet Becoin
Breakfast every day will consist of a selection of cereals, porridge or muesli with yogurts, fresh French bread with butter and preserves. In addition we offer boiled eggs to guests not wanting the cooked breakfast of bacon and fried eggs with Heinz beans or hash browns and mushrooms or tomatoes which is served every day apart from Sundays and the chalet hosts day off (normally Wednesday) when we serve freshly baked croissants and pains au chocolate. To drink we have fruit juice, French coffee and a selection of teas.
For afternoon tea (every day including the chalet hosts day off), the most informal meal of the day, help yourself to fresh bread, butter and jams, biscuits and home made cake or scones, either eaten at the table or relaxing beside the fire.
New for this season: pre-dinner canapes and aperitifs will be served in the lounge.
For Dinner your Chalet Hosts cook a 3-course evening meal. On the final evening of your holiday, your chalet host will produce a 4-course evening meal including a local Cheese board and port.
The evening meal is served at 8pm.
To complement your meal we serve free and unlimited good quality Red and White wines during the course of dinner. After dinner fresh ground coffee or decaffeinated coffee as well as tea are served in the lounge.
Special Food/Dietary Requirements
Our chalet hosts are used to adapting the menu to accomodate your food preferences. If you do have a specific dietary need (eg Vegetarian or Coeliac) or an allergy, please let the office know at least 10 days prior to your holiday start date. Many food preferences can be dealt with on arrival. Please note that French alpine supermarkets do not have the same range as British supermarkets, therefore if you have very strict dietary needs it is helpful if you can bring a few items.
Children aged 11 and under will be served High Tea at around 6pm. This is provided at no extra cost and ensures that your child's normal routine is not disturbed: soft drinks or milk are served with the meal. It also ensures that adults can enjoy their evening meal, which is served at 8pm. If you have booked a whole chalet then you can eat together - please speak to your chalet hosts on arrival.
An alpine chalet is a wonderful place to spend the festive season. We provide Christmas trees and decorations. On the day itself, you can look forward to aperitifs, turkey with all the trimmings, flaming Christmas pudding, mince pies, and of course Christmas crackers.
For New Year most of our resorts will have torch lit descents, fireworks and other celebrations. Alternatively, you could just enjoy New Year's Eve dinner in your chalet with a glass or two of fizz.
