Among the catered chalets Les Gets has to offer, Le Lapye is 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. The walk to the village is just 20 minutes and you will have wonderful views over the village.
The chalet was built to a very high standard.
It has three levels. The main living room and dining area is on the first floor. There is a large log fire, TV and WiFi.
There are 5 bedrooms (see the description of each below), some of which are ensuite. 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, please click: http://www.chalets1066.com/en/about/testimonials.html and scroll down to Le Lapye.
When you stay in Le Lapye, we include lifts into the village/ski school/piste each morning.
If you need baby care, please see our page on children and babies.
Included in the price is our drop off and pick up service. We simply ask you to let us know the day before what your requirements are and we will schedule the driver for you.
Meals in Le Lapye
Food is important to us. Wine is too. We think the pleasure of sitting down together, for a leisurely dinner after 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 want something delicious, and something regional. We take pride in providing interesting vegetarian options. Our food is home-made, and cooked each day from fresh 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 special dietary requirements. We believe vegetarians have the same right to delicious food as carnivores.
If you are hungry first thing, be assured that for us breakfast is more than a snack. Select your choice of juice, tea and coffee, yoghurt, fruit and cereal, freshly delivered bread from the artisan bakery, croissants and pain au chocolat. We also offer a different hot option each day, perhaps mushrooms on toast, scrambled egg, pancakes, or egg and bacon, even, sometimes, black pudding (French, of course).
Return to the chalet at about four in the afternoon and help yourself to a pot of tea or coffee, squash and a slice of homemade cake or biscuits. Each day, we make something fresh and sweet, to help you bridge the gap between lunch and dinner time. We love the smell of chocolate cake baking and the sharp but sweet taste of homemade lemon drizzle. We hope you will too.
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's up to you whether your children eat early or join the adults for dinner. Where there are a mix of parties in the chalet, we usually serve an early tea for guests below 14.
A couple of typical evening menus:
Warm lardon, lambs lettuce and walnut salad
Moroccan slow roast lamb tagine
Moroccan slow roast winter vegetable tagine
both served with
chick pea couscous and minted salad
Raspberry and almond custard tart with cream
Hot goats cheese fritters with sweet onion chutney
Fillet of pork with a light dill and white wine jus
Butternut squash and plum tomato gratin
both served with
roast peppers and pommes anna
Triple chocolate pots with vanilla ice
A selection of regional cheeses with bread or biscuits
Coffee or Tea
Each evening liberal amounts of Water, Red and White Wine (and sometimes Rose) will be served with dinner
good quality French wines - grape varieties include Merlot, Grenache, Chardonnay - this is for Adults.
For Children, and adults who prefer not to have alcohol, we serve apple and/or orange juice.
Please appreciate that this menu may need to vary according to availability of produce (not always easy in mountain villages) and also that the chef's day off may vary, but is usually Wednesday.
Please also appreciate that the kitchen is not for use by clients, except for making tea/coffee.
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
