At Chalet Sapphire, eating is as much a part of the experience as skiing, and it’s a business the staff take seriously, with the belief that each meal here should be as outstanding as a meal at your very favourite restaurant.
The talented staff are handpicked from the best restaurants and Michelin-starred kitchens and they will help create menus tailored specifically to your party – using local, seasonal ingredients wherever possible. Whether you want to be wowed with the best in modern fine dining or simply enjoy some of the best comfort food you’ll ever eat, curled up on the sofa, you have only to say.
Guests can enjoy a Champagne reception at the time of your choosing. It’s a lovely way to kick off a special celebration evening, such as a birthday.
This luxury chalet is renowned for its ‘Breakfast Club’, with a selection of hot options to choose from. A reduced menu is offered on the chef’s days off and a continental spread will be laid out for you.
When you return from your day’s skiing, afternoon tea will be laid out ready for you, including freshly made breads, cakes and a charcuterie platter to take the edge off your hunger. Boot room snacks and drinks are also available.
In the evenings, dinner can be whatever you want it to be. The staff recommend two gourmet dinners, one ‘relaxed dinner’ which might be combined with a cinema night or simply served to you in front of the fire, a ‘chef’s table’ meal (six-course tasting menu with matched wines) and a night of Kaiseki (a six-course Japanese fine-dining experience).
And you can rest assured the wine list is as carefully considered as the menus. The chalet’s owners make it their business to regularly visit producers across Europe (it’s a tough job but someone has to do it) in order to ensure the wine list is always exceptional. There are eight to ten house wines available, but the chalet’s cellar is also stocked with an a la carte list for you to choose from. Prosecco and house champagne are also served on tap throughout your stay and the bar is stocked with craft beers and gin – there’s even a house cocktail list.
Luxury dining at Chalet Sapphire is offered on five evenings. Your chalet host will be happy to recommend and book a restaurant or help arrange a delivery of freshly made pre-prepared meals to the chalet on chef’s nights off.
