Our philosophy on food in Chalet TinTin has always been simple: good food and lots of it. Our food is freshly cooked every day using the best quality ingredients we can find. We've been running chalet holidays for ten seasons now and we've learned a lot in that time. We're very proud of the food we serve and we're sure you'll love it too. We have a policy of only recruiting experienced chefs to work in our chalets, never gap-year kids. Our chefs have often worked in fine-dining environments in top hotels and restaurants and we've steadily gained a reputation for excellent food with no fuss. For an example menu, click here. All our catered accomodation prices include meals on a half-board basis. That gets you hot breakfast every day, four-course dinner every night (except Wednesday) and all the cakes, tea, coffee, wine and beer you can handle. We really like cake and we've had so many requests for our cake recipes that we've created The Cake Page.
We work with a local supplier to offer a choice of quality wines. Typically we'll have at least two different reds and whites in our rack for you to choose from, with some added options on special occasions. We mix things up during the season, but we often have wines from Château d'Or et de Gueules making special guest appearances while our house red wines include Les Deux Lezards Coteaux de Languedoc and Le Vieux Prieuré. Whites include Cuvée Dolmens, which surprised us with its complex, flowery flavours, and wine from the Domaine Vigne-Lourac in the South-West.
We can cater for most special diets if we're given enough warning so please let us know your requirements as early as possible. We've catered for many, many different dietary requirements in the past, from vegetarians to severe allergies so we're happy to handle almost anything.
We take one night off per week (usually Wednesday). Sainte Foy resort has a handful of good restaurants to choose from. We can point you in the right direction or book somewhere for you, just ask. Sainte Foy village (five minutes drive from the resort) has some more options for eating out. We can advise on how to get there and back in the evening.
