At Consensio, we have a passion for fine food and drink. We only use the finest ingredients and wherever possible, local and seasonal produce, sourced from markets and farms.
We ensure that your dining experience is bespoke rather than routine and your chef will be delighted to discuss your requirements before and during your stay. Allergies, cultural requirements, Diets, likes and dislikes are all catered for. If you require formal dining they can create gastronomic magic; if you prefer local specialities, classic dining or comfort food in front of the TV, they can do that too.
Wine and Champagne
We stock a range of excellent house wines, but if you have any requests, however rare, our specialist partners Antoine Veuriot at La Cave sur Comptoir and Guillaume Masson at La Verre Gourmand will track them down and have them ready for you when you arrive.
In addition we can arrange a wine tasting evening in your chalet where you can trial both vintage and local wines paired with canapés prepared by your chef.
Of course, there is always a well-stocked bar with your favourite spirits along with chilled Perrier-Jouët champagne waiting for you and your guests throughout your stay

It is said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and never has this been more true than in a ski resort in the winter months. Within our chalets we understand that breakfast is a special time where everyone can gather together and plan the day ahead. We believe that it is both a time to refuel with the energy and nutrients needed for a hard day on the slopes but also a time to indulge and relax enjoying the luxuries of a five star chalet. Our breakfast tables are beautifully laid each morning and welcome you with the best locally sourced produce from the Savoie region. From your kitchen the chef provides a fully cooked breakfast service and creates daily specials that can be tailored to your needs. With healthier options or treats for children, we believe that because breakfast is such a special time why not make it extra special.
On the Table
- Freshly baked bread and pastries
- Selection of freshly cut fruits and berries
- Selection of cereals and muesli
- Butter and preserves
- Freshly pressed juices and smoothies
- Mountain ham & cheese
- Selection of international teas and coffees
- Hot chocolate
Fresh fruits are more than just vitamins and minerals, they are an essential part of a balanced and healthy breakfast. All our fresh fruit and vegetables are chosen by our chefs for quality and freshness. Each morning at breakfast, our chefs create platters of cut fruits and berries for the table tempting both adults and children alike. They also prepare freshly squeezed juices and smoothies daily, making it even easier to stay healthy in the mountains.
Fresh Bread from the Bakery
Within every French ski resort is a renowned boulangerie providing the fresh artisan breads, croissants and pain au chocolat that France is so famous for. Fresh breads and pastries are a special part of our breakfast tables and Consensio works closely with these local bakers bringing you fresh samples each morning to try.
Local Meats and Cheeses
These are a traditional standard of every continental breakfast. Every morning the table is laid with a platter of Savoie cured hams, salamis and specially chosen cheeses direct from the fromagerie. With regular artisan markets, our chefs are able to find true savoyard ingredients to create the perfect alpine breakfast.
Going the extra mile makes all the difference. With so many different ideas for breakfast from around the world our chefs create daily specials for an extra indulgence.
Around the world Afternoon Tea has been enjoyed for centuries by so many different cultures, each one with their own traditions and rituals revolving around it. It has been seen as an occasion where we can build and maintain our social bonds with friends and family, coming together to talk over a refreshing drink and some small light bites.
At Consensio we believe Afternoon Tea is a time to reflect with friends and family and to enjoy each other’s company, talking through experiences from the day on and off the piste, and a chance to plan the next day. Within the warmth of the chalet we have the perfect opportunity for everyone to relax and make the most of the facilities while your team look after your every need.
On your return to the Chalet
After braving the snow covered mountains for the day, what could be more welcoming than returning to the warmth and comfort of your luxury chalet. Before you return, the open fire will have warmed through the chalet to help welcome you in from the cold slopes and a hard day out on the pistes. With staff on hand to greet you upon arrival and see to your every comfort, it is the time of day to finally relax and truly make the most of your Consensio chalet.
Drinks both Hot and Cold
During your afternoon tea your staff will serve a selection of teas and coffees, with speciality teas from specialist Mariage Frères. Flavoured hot chocolates for the young ones and vin chaud for the grown-ups make for a truly alpine experience. For those who enjoy partaking in après-ski we always have Perrier Jouet on ice and your staff on hand.
From the Kitchen
