Chalet Hosts (Summer)

Colletts Mountain Holidays

Italian Dolomites

Weekly wage + food, accommodation, insurance & travel expenses

Mid-May onwards every summer

Early October


We are currently recruiting couples or pairs of friends for the summer to run our Alpine Chalets in the village of Corvara in the spectacular Italian Dolomites. The Chalets sleeps from 22 to 28 guests and the job would entail cooking for 30 to 35 people each evening. As well as the domestic management of the chalet (cleaning, food ordering etc.) you would be making breakfast and a three course evening meal six days a week, with one full day off. The emphasis is on creating a ‘home from home’ atmosphere and providing excellent ‘home cooked food’ to a dinner party standard: it has to be special. You would very much be at the heart of our guests’ holiday, eating with them each evening, and looking after them as if they were staying in your own home. Daily help is provided by the rest of the chalet team during breakfast, morning room cleans and during evening dinner service.
