Le Lapye is a great catered chalet located on the Route des Chavannes, one of the most popular areas in Les Gets. You can usually ski back to within 30 metres of the chalet, and the free bus stops within 20 metres of the front door; but enough about walking - we drive you to and from the slopes in our private minibus.
We know that at the end of a hard days skiing nothing is nicer than arriving back at the chalet and tucking into some homemade cakes or biscuits, and relaxing in front of the fire.
Food, and the wine that accompanies it, are very important to us, that is why we throughly test all of our menus and wines (it's a hard job!) . Menus are updated each year to keep up with trends. We pride ourselves on having a relaxing family atmosphere
The layout of the chalet can be seen by clicking on the plans - opposite. it has three levels, a number of rooms have en-suite bathrooms. There are 5 bedrooms (see the description of each below). In addition there is a separate bathroom which has a bath and basin, a separate shower room consisting of a shower cubicle, basin and w.c., and lastly, a separate wc.
We have received outstanding reviews and testimonials for our Catered Chalet, these can be seen on Trip Advisor (which has the latest reviews –click on the Trip Advisor link opposite) and also reviews on our web site – Read more.
We know that happy children make for happy parents, you can have in-chalet child-care or recommend the local creche in the village. Depending on the age of your children, they combine the child-care with getting used to being on skis and have great activities for the little ones. Read more.
Meals in Le Lapye
We think the pleasure of sitting down together for a leisurely dinner, talking about the thrills and spills of a day in the mountains is a key part of any chalet holiday.
At Le Lapye we aim to please those with hearty appetites and those who enjoy eating delicious food. We love to cater for our regional themed evening where you will get to try something slightly different! We take pride in providing interesting vegetarian and gluten free options. Our food is all home-made, and everything is made each day from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Where the whole chalet is booked by a party you can have more influence over our weekly menu, but we always try to cater for preferences and especially dietary requirements. We believe vegetarians and gluten free diets have the same right to delicious food as omnivores.
Breakfast is a vital part of your skiing holiday; it is what you need to ensure you are ready to attack those mountains! It is because of this that we like to ensure you have a wide variety of things to choose from. You can start by selecting your choice of juice, tea and coffee, yoghurt, fruit and cereal, fresh delivered bread from the artisan bakery, who delivers to us daily. Croissants and pain au chocolate are fresh from the oven every morning. We also offer boiled eggs and porridge alongside a different hot option each day, perhaps mushrooms on toast, scrambled eggs, pancakes, even, sometimes English bacon and egg. Last year the parents of one family who stayed at Le lapye reported back that after their return, their children were asking each morning ‘what’s the hot option for today?’
Return to the chalet at about four in the afternoon where your host will have laid out everything you need to help yourself to a pot of tea or coffee, or for the kids some squash. We love the smell of chocolate cake baking and the sharp but sweet taste of our lemon drizzle, this alone is enough to entice anyone to take a slice!
Dinner – Adults and Children
Dinner is usually served at 7:30. Where parties include young children we can provide an early children’s tea at 6:00. If a single party books the whole chalet it is up to you whether your children eat early or join the adults for dinner. Where there are a mix of parties in the chalet will we serve an early dinner for all guests below the age of 14.
We always serve three courses, with pleantiful wine (or beer if prefered) and a cheese course as well if wanted. Look at the pictures in the gallery to get an idea of the food served.
A member of our administration team will also send you a dietary requirement form in the run up to your arrival. It is important that this is filled out and returned to us having been consulted by all members of your party to ensure we are providing for all dietary requirements.
Free Day Extra to Ski
You can arrive early, leave your baggage at Chalet Hastings, have your passes and ski equipment delivered on arrival, and be on the slopes easily within an hour of arrival. On departure, you can leave your bags at Chalet Hastings and have a whole day to ski and get a late plane back – with your equipment being collected. You get at least a whole extra day to ski at no extra cost.

We have stayed with 1066 last year and we thought it couldn't be bettered, this year we stayed at le lapye, and 1006 managed to exceed our expectations..... Paul Chambers
The quality of the accommodation was excellent with plenty of room for our party of nine people. The food was excellent with a comprehensive breakfast, afternoon cake and tea and a superb evening meal. The staff were extremely friendly and efficient ... attention to detail was first class.
Fantastic, friendly chalet girls who were great cooks and great with the kids.
Our second stay at Le Lapye...surpassed even last years trip - which we didn't think possible. Nothing is too much trouble and Lauries cooking is delicious! The Chalet is warm and comfortable and the whole team provide a 'total' service. Chalets 1066 offer Le Lapye at excellent value for money. Les Gets is a delightful town with warm and welcoming people, so refreshing from many other French towns! The skiing is great for families and this year we didn't even bother booking the full Porte du Soleil pass - and we are experienced and committed skiers! This in itself made for even better value for money! Well done and thank you to Morven and the chalets 1066 team. We will be back! :) Nicola and Fred Lewis
