It’s that time of year again. We’re switching up our summer wardrobes, wrapping up in winter coats, and our thoughts are turning to the slopes. The Luxe team has done some digging, picking out some of the chicest chalets for savvy skiers to enjoy as the seasons change. Whether it’s a cosy, countryside cabin in the woods, or a plush pad on the edge of the slopes, there’s something to suit all styles and budgets.
CHALET CHARDON, MORZINE
Chalet Chardon is as charming and as cosy as it gets. It’s the ultimate hideaway in the hills – with breathtaking views of the Ports du Soleil skiing area. Imagine this… returning from a day of world-class skiing to a glass of wine by the crackling fire or a soak in a bubble bath. Life is pretty luxe here. You’ll find a stunning, snow-topped backdrop, blankets for getting toasty by the fire and a hot tub bubbling away out back. Bliss! If you’re hoping to combine skiing with some serious downtime, this is the place to do so. With five beautiful bedrooms and five bathrooms, it’s a real box-ticker when it comes to family gatherings in the Alps.
Chalet Grace in Zermatt is an ultra-chic, cosy hideaway in the mountains. A real home from home, taking everything from breathtaking views to country-comfort into account, this modern-meets-melow chalet is beautifully light with a roaring fire and picture postcard views. A beautiful bolthole to relax and unwind with the family after a busy day on the slopes.
CHALET CARCAJOU, MERIBEL
Carcajou is the perfect chocolate box chalet located in the exclusive Dou de Pont area guaranteeing privacy and easy access to the village and main ski lift station. Furnished tastefully with every comfort in mind, this chalet delivers luxury with absolute finesse. Here the kids can amuse themselves in the games room while you snuggle up on the sofa with a good book in hand, and all the while outside, feathery snowflakes do their merry dance only to softly land on the chalet balcony.
CHALET LE ROCHER, VAL D’ISERE
Le Rocher is one of an elite group of chalets found in the peaceful area of Les Fermes de Val d’Isere. Nestled at the top of private road, it’s a safe haven for up to 14 guests, guaranteeing undisturbed tranquility and breathtaking views of the snowy Isère valley. Loved by us for its intricately carved furnishings, made with rustic, reclaimed wood, and heavy sprinkling of twinkling chandeliers (you’ll find one in nearly every nook and cranny), it boasts both cosy, traditional good looks and contemporary charm.
CHALET CHOUQUI, VERBIER
The incredibly impressive Chalet Chouqui is a plush pad for big families and groups of friends looking to hit the slopes in style! With rolling views of Mont Blanc Massif, this snow-covered paradise boasts a large terrace with al fresco dining for 20, plus sumptuous sofas aplenty, a sunken outdoor hot tub and roaring fire pit with BBQ rack. It’s the perfect place to celebrate the ski season with loved ones – with a bit of added luxury for good measure.
