Luxury Catering and Services
Food - How do we know that the total holiday cost is lower when booking with Chalets 1066 and Chef Services separately when compared with a fully catered package?
The savings, when booking chef service and self-catered accommodation separately, when compared with an 'all in' fully catered package can be up to 5000€ per week for a group of 4 adults and 4 children in like for like accommodation and meals of same/better standard. There are four answers to this question:
- Tax Savings: When an operator sells a fully catered ski holiday, VAT ( TVA in France) has to be charged at 10% on the full value of the holiday. When Self catered accommodation is offered and the operator is not selling/offering meals directly, then the VAT/TVA rate is 0%. As you are paying the chef service or meal delivery service directly and you are not paying us for this service, you only pay TVA/VAT on the means and not on the accommodation. You are therefore making a significant saving in tax.
- You pay the Chef Directly: Our partners for meal delivery and chef services are all local companies we have built up a relationship with over many years, we know they offer good quality at good prices.
- Detailed Price Comparisons: We have carried out detailed price comparisons with a number of companies offering catered chalet holidays. We have taken great care to ensure that the level of service we have included is at least the same as the catered chalet offer. For a group of 8 people, 4 adults and 4 children, we have found savings as much as 5000 € for a week. Of course, the savings are different for each week of the season and are also dependant on which company the comparison is being made with.
- Proven experience: Last ski season, we managed 4 properties which we sold as self-catered. These same properties are being offered this year by a different company fully catered. We have carried out a price comparison week by week for the ski season and have added on chef service and cleaning services onto the prices we were offering the same properties last ski season. For these properties, from the analysis we have carried out, the savings are 500 to 2500 euros per week for 8 people. Additionally, we believe that the chef service we were using in our price analysis would deliver a higher quality meal than the meals that the fully catered chalet company are offering for the 2020-21 ski season, hence we believe that our calculations are conservative.
Please note: for compliance with the French tax regulations so that VAT (TVA in France) does not need to be charged on the full price of the holiday, we cannot provide ourselves (unless otherwise stated): a full breakfast service, regular/mid-week cleaning or chef service. It is for this reason that these services are provided by others.
Of course, call us and we would be happy to help and advise.
Food - Can Chef service be offered for just for one or two evenings and (say) meal delivery on one or two evenings?
Spoony Cooks will offer a chef service for 2 nights minimum, with the exception of the peak weeks ( New Year, Half Term, etc). Chez Toi will offer a minimum of 5 nights.
However, with the meal delivery services you have complete flexibility, with Bon Appetit you put your meals in the freezer and use them when you want, with Direct Dining, they will deliver for just one night, they cook the meals in the morning, deliver in the afternoon and you heat up in the evening.
Yes - if come directly to Chalet Hastings ( where our office is) you can change, leave your bags with us and go out for the day. If you want to ski, you can even have your equipment delivered to Chalet Hastings and your ski passes can be ready for when you arrive. Either we can take your bags to the accommodation you have booked at the end of the day - or you can take your bags yourself.
On departure day, you need to be out by 10:00 so we can clean and prepare for the next guests, however, you can leave your bags at Chalet Hastings, spend all day on the mountains, come back at the end of the day and then start your journey home.
Not only does this give you more time on the slopes, but you also miss the worst of the traffic.
A member of the team will meet with you at the Chalet to show you around and explain all the services and facilities available and give you advice on all aspects of what Les Gets has to offer together with special events and activities taking place during your stay.
Yes, we can organise the very best ski school, private instructors and area guides. Les Gets is home to a wide range of mountain sports including downhill skiing and snowboarding, cross country skiing, ski paragliding, mountain biking and on-road cycling...and many other incredible activities. We know the very best people to help you experience all of the activities on offer. You pay the instructors directly, this gives you the best value.
We can arrange airport transfers, we sub-contract to a company we have a good partnership with, we train all their drivers in the exact location of each property, they also have mainly 4 wheel drive vehicles, so you can be assured of getting to your chalet. Details of airport transfers are on this page. Once you have booked your accommodation with us, you will then have the option of adding on airport transfers.
If you would like taxi's while on your holiday, contact us and we will arrange this, however, do book at least a day in advance, as these services do get busy at peak times.
