Catered Chalets, Morzine - Avoriaz

We no longer run a fully catered chalet all winter long: instead, since 2009-10, we have decided to offer all our chalets and apartments on a self-catered basis, with the option of upgrading to a part-catered or fully-catered service if you choose, or "delivered dinners".

This gives you freedom of choice and more importantly, flexibility. We work with some of the best freelance caterers and chalet staff in the area. There's a great advantage in having a freelance chef cook for your family or group; they are tried and tested, and are making their living from working freelance, so their reputation has to remain consistently high, and you don't run the risk of arriving at a chalet to be met by first-time chalet staff who may not have any experience and may not care too much about the impression they make on you!

If you'd like to have a catered service, please contact us on info@mountainhighs.co.uk with the number of people in your group (adults and children) and your preferred option(s). We will then check availability of freelance caters and their rates, and will get back to you with a quote as soon as possible. Alternatively you can book one of our catering partners direct - see the links below. 

What does "fully catered" mean?

Full catering includes a big breakfast (generally continental with fresh patisseries and a daily hot special, and you can upgrade to a full daily cooked breakfast if you prefer); afternoon tea and cake left out for you to help yourselves to on your return, and dinner. In general, adults' dinner is 3-courses including wine and coffee, but you can choose to have 4 courses every night if you like, or to have dinner without wine supplied. Children who eat earlier than the adults (usually the 2 – 12 year olds) have a discounted catered rate, and are served a 2-course supper; the menu is usually discussed between yourselves and the caterer. Chalet staff have one day off, usually mid-week, when breakfast and afternoon tea will be left ready for you, but dinner is not provided. Prices range from €230 to €350 per adult per week, with discounts for children depending on size of group and menus. Daily cleaning is not provided by freelance caterers but we (Mountain Highs) can provide this service for you if required, just ask us for details.

What about "part-catered"?

Part-catering can mean just dinners every night, or on nights that you choose. We can provide you with ready-made menus to give you an idea of what will be served, or you can tailor-make the menus in conjunction with your caterer. The average rate for a 3-course dinner with wine is €30 per adult: the menu can be upgraded to €40 or €50 menus with extra courses, canapés, special wines etc.  The choice is totally yours!

Part-catering can also mean breakfast-only, or breakfast and daily cleaning (such as a B & B type arrangement).

And "Dinner Delivery"?

"Dinner Delivery" is a service that is increasing in popularity: your evening meal will be delivered to your accommodation ready to heat and serve, so you don't have to have anyone actually cooking in the accommodation for you. There are various menus available: rates range from 11€ per adult for 1 course to €25 per person for 2 courses (discounts apply for larger group sizes).
