The walk to the village is just 20 minutes and you will have wonderful views over the village.
In Le Lapye - we pride ourselves in offering good food, good service a good chalet at a good price! We don't aim to be 'top end', neither do we aim to be 'economy' - we focus on helping all our customers have a great holiday without breaking the bank.

Meals in Le Lapye
Food is important to us. Wine is too. This is why every year we devise a new menu for Le Lapye and have to endure many a wine tasting event, which is always great fun, to ensure we are carefully selecting the best wine, available locally to us, to accompany your meal. 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 carnivores.
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, and croissants and pain au chocolate, 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!
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 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 service for all guests below the age of 14.
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.

February 2014: 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. the chalet is a great base to get on the slopes and what with the free lifts this just added to the convenience especially when we got stuck in town because the bus couldn't get up the hill. Becks and India are a great team they made us all feel welcome from the out set and their cooking is of the highest level, plus they managed the impossible to get one of our party to eat snails. Morven and ben are the best,really friendly and can't do enough for you always on hand to help out no matter what.would highly recommend them to anybody but i wouldn't go in the 1st week of feb as thats when we want to come back.
January 2014: We spent an enjoyable week at the end of January 2014 in the catered chalet Le Lapye. 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 and often went beyond what could reasonably be expected of them.As usual with 1066, the organisation , efficiency and attention to detail was first class.
January 2014: Fantastic, friendly chalet girls who were great cooks and great with the kids.
April 2013: Had a great stay at Le Lapye in Les Gets, would highly recommend Chalets1066 for your ski / summer holiday's.
January 2013: A wonderful weeks ski-ing - made all the more enjoyable with amazing meals waiting for you in the evenings and much appreciated lifts to and from the ski-slopes.
Thank you! Nicola Shepstone
