Complete freedom on your ski holiday
Looking for a self-catered chalet? We have plenty to choose from, right here.
Renting a self-catered chalet for a ski holiday is growing in popularity for many reasons. Guests have the freedom to come and go without set dinner times, there's more flexibility for eating times and eating out, there's more privacy, and the money saved on chalet staff can be spent on a higher-quality chalet.
There are so many restaurants in the French Alps, including some with a Michelin star or two, so you can savour haute cuisine in world-class restaurants located in ski resorts such as Manigod/La Clusaz and Megève, as well as Annecy. Many guests enjoy the experience of walking up to one of the many restaurants hidden off the beaten track or with a view of Mont Blanc, where they can dine on delicious local dishes before tobogganing down on a snow-covered road or piste to get back to town — fun for all the family or for a group of friends. Such memorable experiences are possible when renting self-catering chalets.
Booking a self-catered chalet doesn't mean you have to cook. There is now a wide variety of meal delivery options to choose from, such as traditional Savoyard meals (raclette with charcuterie meat, for example), as well as gourmet frozen meals that we've tried and tested (and loved), including breakfast options, as well as simple pizza delivery. Ask us for our latest recommendations when you book!
And if you would like to cook, why not request a grocery delivery upon your arrival so you don't have to bother with shopping. Groups or families with special dietary requirements, such as coeliacs or someone with nut or dairy allergies, can cook their own meals for extra reassurance that their meals are suitable.
Without the cost of chalet staff, guests can choose from ski-in/ski-out chalets by the piste, a log cabin hidden away with a hot tub on the terrace (or perhaps a swimming pool!), or a chalet with a log fire roaring and crackling after that toboggan ride home from the restaurant. A self-catered chalet can make for the perfect ski holiday!
Choosing a self-catering chalet also gives you the flexibility of choosing the ski area that suits your group best. You can find OVO Network self-catered accommodation in popular resorts such as Morzine and Les Gets in the Portes du Soleil, as well as more typically French resorts, like La Clusaz, Le Grand Bornand, Chinaillon, Cordon and Valmorel. You're no longer restricted to the Grand Massif or the Three Valleys!
Short breaks are rarely catered, meaning chalet holidays are often out of reach for those on a three-day stay. A selection of OVO Network chalets offer short break deals during low season in winter and at other times of the year too, so your group can enjoy communal living areas rather than being stuck in individual hotel rooms.
OVO Network ski chalets are fast and simple to book online right away. You can also book ski hire, lift passes and even gourmet food delivery online, so if you don't want to cook, you don't have to!
