EXCLUSIVE SKI CHALETS

In the Lap of Luxury

You might not be aware of this, but there was a time when the only place to get five star service and absolute luxury was in the top hotels, where glitz and glamour was old school, and top chefs cut their teeth on a range of menus. 
 
These days most people heading out to the Alps on holiday this year will go for a chalet rather than a hotel. That’s far more a statement about how fabulous high end chalets are getting, than any sort of indictment of five star hotels today. 
 
After all, when your choices range from the super chalets in Verbier (including Richard Branson’s the Lodge) to the beautiful renovations in Val d’Isere and the stylish contemporary apartments and chalets in Zermatt and St Anton, why wouldn’t you plump for the intimate chalet environment?

Chalets rented out to groups of friends and family mean that you get all the luxury of a hotel, in an intimate and private setting. Guests enjoy more attention from staff, with the same level of services and a freedom that comes with enjoying the personal touch of a ski holiday. 
 
The highest quality chalets come with staff that will cater to your every need, spa facilities, at least a couple of fantastically well furnished reception rooms, and sometimes anything from your own private nightclub, to a cosy bar, to a Billiards room. Guests could quite easily spend a full week inside the chalet, without ever skiing, and still not fully take advantage of the facilities on offer in these chalets. 
 
All that, and we haven’t even covered the dining options yet. 
 
Dinner, you say?

Gone are the days when the evening meal was a rudimentary spaghetti bolognaise, followed by banoffee pie and served by a girl named Arabella, Petronella or Henrietta, who really only wanted to ski and party. These days, all the best chalets have trained chefs in the kitchen, with Michelin level cuisine made by people who are passionate about food. 
 
No more will you be served a fixed set menu, and glared at for every aberration. Bespoke is the word of the day, and any chef would be delighted to discuss your specialist requirements ahead of your dream holiday. And let’s face it, there is little about these chalets that isn’t like something from a dream. 
 
A holiday in any one of a number of champagne-and-caviar chalets (like the self proclaimed best-chalet-in-the-world, the Truffe Blanche) can be the trip of a lifetime.
