«Beautiful Avoriaz, stunning Chavanette», was how great-grandfather Joseph Lenvers described the high-altitude grazing in Avoriaz. It was here that he put his cows out to pasture each summer, long before the ski resort was born, when he welcomed walkers to his bar. Back in 1955, he'd serve up a lemonade or a fine glass of red wine to accompany a wild mushroom omelette prepared by his wife Jeanne.
It was in 1966 that the restaurant began to really take off with the arrival of grandfather Jean and his wife Yvonne. The ski resort was born and so too was "Le Chalet d'Avoriaz, Chez Lenvers".
Jean behind the bar, with a towel over his shoulder and a lit cigarette, making sure that over the 25 years as the resort was growing, that all of the workers and tourists enjoyed meals that reflected Yvonne's beliefs: sincerity, generosity and above all, humility.
"After these early fantastic years", the third generation of the family took up the baton. After graduating from a top hotelier school, Joseph and Véronique have kept the torch burning brightly until today. Véro, ensuring traditional dining with her unparalleled charm and Jo always with one eye on the future, creating a second terrace and burger bar and topping it off with snow bars framing a dance area for après-ski afternoons.
After 60 historic years years the old chalet d'Avoriaz has taken a well-earned retirement.
The 4th generation of the family are ready to take their place, fuelled by a real desire to write "a new chapter in their family's history".
