More Info

YES offers a range of accommodation options so you can choose your own experience.

  • CATERED CHALETS:  These chalets include 6 delicious dinners each week and daily continental breakfasts. Dinners are prepared by your chalet host and all meals are enjoyed in the comfort of your house… it’s like a big family dinner each night! We offer a standard catered chalet and a premium chalet for an additional cost. Click the button below to find out more.
  • SELF-CATERED CHALETS: These chalets don’t include a meals package so the overall cost is cheaper. There is a kitchen provided so you can make your own meals.
  • Our catered chalets are best suited to guests aged 17-25. We also offer more private 3 star accommodation for guests over 30, check out our Career Break Programs page for suitable accommodation options and prices. Note that prices on this page are for the main instructor group chalets only, most suited to guests aged 18 – 25. If you fall somewhere in between, get in touch and we can help work out the best options for you!
