The food was generally very good, apart from the first night when we arrived late at the catered chalet, and the meal wasn’t very substantial. There were two people looking after the chalet and doing the cooking, etc, and fourteen guests. There was a cooked option each morning, afternoon tea and cakes, and a three course evening meal for four of the five nights.
For lunch, we usually stopped at a cafe or restaurant somewhere in the mountains. At the L’Arpette mountain restaurant above Arc 18000 we enjoyed fantastic pizzas. You may be able to make out the bill in the above photo – Euros 42.50 for four pizzas, which is a typical price for nice food in the mountains.
The day we skiied over to la Plagne, we had a snack in the restaurant at the top of Roche de Mio, at 2700 metres. The toilets in these places are always in the basement, and it’s quite an effort getting down the stairs in boots and kit.
Once a week, the chalet staff have a day off, so on the Thursday we ate out at the El Latino Loco restaurant in Arc 2000.
For Euros 100 for four people, El Latino Loco do a special three course meal of French onion soup, fondue, tarte and a bottle of wine. The fondue was tasty, but stringy!
