Chamonix valley catering company
Summer seaside catering
From the summer of 2018 we're going to be adding new and exciting packages, not only in the Chamonix Valley but in the Marennes Oleron basin in south west France, in villas on the Oleron island, known as the island of light and further inland in the marshland nature 2000 reserve...nature all around!
It's an amazing place to relax, cycle, enjoy amazingly fresh seafood, and local produce, watersports, coastal walks and plenty of sunshine as well as wonderful towns full of history, bird watching, boat excursions, and three other islands to explore!
The Charente Maritime had the highest number of sunshine hours after the Cote d'Azur.
We'll be offering the same high standard of catering as you're used to in Chamonix, only we'll be creating succulent summer villa dishes, using the amazing local produce available. Seafood, oysters, clams, mussels, crab, langoustines, fresh fish, melon, figs, white aspapragus, a hint of Cognac, apples, pears, wild mushrooms, local marshland beef, salted caramel, fresh goat's cheese, wild samphire, this place has a lot to offer!
GETTING THERE AND AROUND
By car, it would be great to have a car on the island as it's the second largest island in France after Corsica, so there's a lot to explore. To get here by car simply take the A10 motorway from Paris, exit 34, go towards Rochefort, and follow signs for Ile d'oleron and Marennes.
By Plane, the closest airport is La Rochelle, the flights are limited outside of the summer months, however you can fly from Stansted with Ryanair year round. Bordeaux airport is a two hour drive and has great connections year round.
By train, the closest train station is in Rochefort, from here you can take 'Les Mouettes' bus.
From Boyardville on the Oleron island, you can get a ferry to La Rochelle and the Aix Island, great day trips!
BIKE! There are hundreds of kilometers of bike dedicated bike paths, safe and fun to explore, you can also go further afield on the velodysee long distance bike route, running from Roscoff to Biaritz! In total there are four islands which are great to explore on a bike, it's by far the best form of transport in the region.
