It is also essential that our staff be treated with politeness, respect and courtesy at all times. We will take any reports of discrimination or gender-based behavior very seriously, and we reserve all of the rights set forth in the “Conduct” section.
16. SERVICE SCHEDULES
In order for our staff to perform their duties in a professional manner and deliver excellent service, time limitations apply. We will always strive to be as flexible as possible to meet the needs of our clients during their stay, but in some cases we may have to restrict services that fall outside of these service hours:
- Breakfast: 07:30 to 10:00 (service ends at 10:00)
- Dinner (start): 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
The rooms are generally cleaned between 9:30 am and 4:00 pm each day. The cleaning crew works on a daily rotation and it is not possible to set a specific time when cleaning will take place for a given room in a given accommodation. Therefore, if upon arrival, the housekeeping team cannot handle a room because it is occupied and cannot be vacated, we may not be able to handle your room that day.
Finally, to avoid any inconvenience, we remind you that pets must not be in your room so that room service can make its daily rounds.
Guests staying in one of our accommodations, use at their own risk any wellness equipment (sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, Swedish baths, swimming pool, fitness equipment, …).

18. DRIVER SERVICE
During the winter season, our property is equipped with a specific chauffeur service in the resorts of Bellecôte and Belle Plagne only. We operate a high quality van that has been selected for your comfort and safety. Our vehicle has 8 passenger seats. All passengers must wear seat belts while in the vehicle. Please note that we can only carry passengers in the seats provided in the vehicle – for example, it is not possible for children to travel on the lap of adults. It may therefore be necessary for the driver to make several trips.
Children must use the appropriate seats, in accordance with French law. This means that all children 12 years of age and under, or children less than 1.35 m tall, may be required to use a booster seat or child seat. Interpretation of this requirement is the responsibility of our leadership team and we ask parents to support them.
Please note that children can only be transported in our vehicles if accompanied by an adult. Therefore, our drivers cannot pick up children from classes without an adult present.
In the interest of your safety, drivers may only drop off and pick up in designated areas. Please note that our ski resorts are very busy villages, with many traffic regulations to ensure the safety of road users and pedestrians. In order to respect them, it may sometimes be necessary for customers to walk a short distance to meet the driver at an appropriate location.
Please note that drivers can only wait at a specific location for a maximum of 10 minutes. In the event that a customer is late for a scheduled pickup, we ask that the driver be contacted – please note that in extreme circumstances, this may require the driver to return at a later time to fulfill other scheduled commitments.
Although drivers are always available “by appointment”, we require at least 30 minutes notice of your transportation needs to allow the driver enough time to meet you on site. Please note, we cannot offer an “on demand/driver” service where a driver is specifically with your group/in your property throughout the day.
The driver service operates according to the law. We reserve the right to refuse transportation to a location if we consider that it is against the law or outside the normal and fair use of this service. Outside of the hours of operation of the driving service, any provision of this service will be at the discretion of management.
