FOOD & WINE
Our flexible catering service offers a convenient choice between a self-catered and catered holiday, and provides you the choice of which meals you would like prepared for you at times that are convenient to you. We will work around your preferences and requirements. Our catering service provides the flexibility to have delicious homemade food in the Villa whenever you want it, leaving you to sample the village bistros or cook for yourselves on the nights that you do not.
All of guests are offered a welcome basket service on arrival. We'll write to you before you arrive with a list of items we can put in your fridge on the day of arrival, if you require. This includes basic items such as coffee, milk, sugar, bread, butter, cereal, eggs, pasta, some meat and cheese. This will get you through your first day in resort, and we can tailor the basket to your preferences. We charge a small fee for this service.
With a number of different options to choose from we are sure that you will find the perfect balance to enhance your holiday. And we shall take great pleasure in cooking you some of our regional specialities.
Once you have booked your accommodation at Villa Marie-Louise, we will send you our sample menu for the period that you are visiting. This will give you an idea of what to expect and help you plan your holiday food requirements.
Our 'simple breakfasts' are continental in style, and include cereal, croissant, pain au chocolat, baguettes, butter and jam / marmalade / marmite with as much tea and coffee as you can drink. English breakfasts are available on request.
We believe that instant coffee is a crime, so we have a wide selection of delicious filter coffees from around the world to help you start the day on the right track. Our 'deluxe' breakfasts include the above selection, together with a plate of charcuterie. Self - service breakfast from 7.30am.
We offer both a packed lunch service should you wish to maximise your time on the slopes or a simple lunch platter back in the Villa. The choice is entirely yours. If you would prefer to return to the Villa for some lunch, then you need only tell us when you plan to be back and we'll make sure food is awaiting your return from the slopes.
If you require a packed lunch, please give us 24 hours notice. Our packed lunches consist of ham/cheese/salad baguette, chocolate bar, 200ml fruit drink, apple / orange.
Dinner is normally served at 7pm. However, if you wish to spend a little longer on the slopes and finish off the day with a 'vin chaud' or 'kir royale' in that cosy mountain auberge, there is no reason not to. Just send us an SMS so we know what time to expect you back.
The dinner menu comprises three courses: a typical menu would be french onion soup, tartiflette, and apple pie with ice cream. Dinner is accompanied by one bottle of complimentary house red or white wine with every fourth plate setting
