Food and Wine
Collineige has deservedly built up a first class reputation for its cuisine. Food and wine continue to be an extremely important part of any Collineige catered holiday and we take great care to ensure that you will not be disappointed. Our chefs have years of experience working in private homes or in restaurants around the world and come to cook for you in your chalet. They will source the finest local ingredients to prepare mouth watering menus to suit your tastes, taking their inspiration from the specialities of Savoy and further afield.
Our catered chalet prices include a hearty continental breakfast (porridge, cereal, yoghurt, fruit, croissants etc), homemade cake & tea after skiing and on five evenings each week, a four course dinner with wine. The chefs do not have a fixed menu but enjoy creating menus to suit your preferences. We provide a very good house wine and you may also upgrade this by buying from our carefully chosen wine list.
Two evenings a week you will enjoy the opportunity to sample one of the many local restaurants.
For children, we provide early children's suppers.
