Self Catering information for Summer & Winter Guests

Self catering holidays are becoming increasing more popular in Chamonix, especially in the winter ski season. The great thing about self catering at Chalet La Moraine is that you really can please yourself. The luxury designer kitchen at the Chalet was designed with self catering holidays to Chamonix in mind. The Chalet is well stocked with crockery, cutlery, glassware, pots & pans & all the utensils you will need for your self catering requirements. There is a coffee machine, food processor, 2 Siemens ovens & 2 Siemens hobs (both are 4 ring hobs), there’s also a Siemens dishwasher which is nice & quiet & a big American Fridge Freezer.

This is handy if you stock up at the Carrefour supermarket in Sallanches which is just off the motorway as you make your way up to Chamonix from Geneva to the Chalet. So it’s perfect for an en-route stock up as you really can get everything you need for your self catering holiday in Chamonix. Carrefour has a huge choice of food, clothes & everything else you would expect in a hypermarket. The quality of food is great & it is cheaper than the local supermarkets in the Chamonix valley.

In terms of local supermarkets, the closest is the Super U supermarket in Les Houches, (a couple of minutes drive from the Chalet), it is smaller than Carrefour, but just as big as the supermarkets in Chamonix with better prices & a really good selection of goods. http://www.superu-leshouches.com. You can also book a grocery delivery on line from Super U.

There is also an Organic supermarket in Les Houches called the Green Mouse Market, it’s not cheap but it’s the best option for organic food in the Chamonix Valley.

Alternatively if you fancy a change from cooking & a bit of indulgence then you could hire a private chef to come to the Chalet & cook for you. This is also a great thing to do for a special occasion. You could also have meals delivered to the Chalet that are ready prepared so all you have to do is pop them in the oven. In the summer you can have BBQ meat & fish packs delivered to the chalet so all you have to do is light up the BBQ & away you go. Or if you want to go out for a bite to eat then there is something to suit every taste and budget in the Chamonix valley, from local fare, vegetarian, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Indian right the way up to Michelin starred restaurants.

All in all self catering holidays at our luxury chalet in Chamonix are a great way to have flexibility as you can sample local restaurants, buy & cook local food or have a luxury night off & get someone else to do all the work for you in the comfort of Chalet La Moraine.
