We all know about the catered Chalet option where everything is provided for you, Continental breakfast, afternoon tea and cakes, 3 course dinner with wine etc etc, But this comes at a price and not usually a cheap one unless you can find last minute deals online.
The alternative is self catering accommodation and this is becoming a more and more popular option especially with the MTB community, Partly due to the fact that equipment is so expensive and the riders would rather spend their money on new tyres and brakes pads than have a beef bourguinon each night.

Mummas fish and chip shop serving the obvious along side amazing noodles, Burgers, Wraps and pizzas. Then our favourite for a sit down dinner is L'Etale with amazing character and a fun vide the steak is amazing, the fondu full of flavour and the complimentary shot of Genepi make for a great meal out.
When it comes to going for a drink after riding or a bite to eat for lunch our personal favourite is Le Cottage. Based just at the bottom of Le Pleney lift you can get chicken nuggets for €5.50 or wraps for the same price. After riding all the locals head down there with cheap beers and music its a great way to finish off a days riding.
