Private Dining at La Chartreuse

For restaurant-quality dining in the comfort of your own villa, the owners of La Chartreuse offer a wide range of delectable menus. Dinner is served as a full service option, which comes with laid tables, all food as agreed, plus waitress service and clean up at the end of the evening, all for around 75 euros per person, depending on the menu selected. The team is happy to work with your preferences so the menu can be truly bespoke. Alternatively, your hosts can provide a drop off service for you to heat and serve whenever you wish. This option costs around 35 euros per adult/20 per child under 15, again depending on the food choices you make. Sample menus are shown below.
