Top 5: Best Winter Offers on Luxury Ski Chalet RentalsBy Angelica Malin
The Alps are home to some of the best skiing and most exclusive resorts in the world so it would be a shame to miss out if you haven’t booked a ski trip yet. Ski enthusiasts who don’t want to compromise on luxury are lucky that there are still some great deals left for the winter season. Rent a luxury ski chalet for short breaks or at peak times like New Year and benefit from some amazing offers on properties with swimming pools, hot tubs, private chefs and more:
Val d’Isere is a perennial favourite on the Alpine ski scene. Besides having some amazing skiing for all abilities, it also has lively après-ski options and a fantastic range of luxury chalets.
Chalet Mistral is a stunning example of a premium property that exudes luxury and finesse. It offers a commanding view over Val d’Isere and it’s only a 10-minute walk from the resort’s centre and two minutes from the ski lifts. The 7-bedroom luxury chalet is a haven of relaxation with staff on hand to cater to your every need from ensuring your champagne glass is topped up to experienced masseurs soothing your aches and pains.
The building itself is full of rustic character with old wooden beams and a big stone fireplace that complete the ‘farmhouse chic’ vibe. It’s the perfect place for an intimate get together with family and friends, so we recommend you take advantage of the New Year discount that is currently available. The rate has been reduced from £59,000 to £35,000 for 30th December 2016 until 6th January 2017, with the possibility of an extra two nights for free.
Picture postcard Zermatt is possibly the most scenic Alpine resort with its backdrop of the Matterhorn Mountain. What could be better than viewing the iconic sight than from your own luxury ski chalet? This winter, Chalet Grace can offer something better: a free helicopter tour and lunch with any Christmas and New Year bookings.
Opulent, majestic and awe-inspiring are just three words to describe Chalet Grace, but they can’t quite capture the magic of this 5-bedroom villa. A combination of vaulted ceilings, enormous full-length windows and an achingly cool interior that combines antique pieces with contemporary fittings makes for a unique bolthole in the mountains. Its exceptional features include a cinema room, wellness centre, outdoor hot tub and a dedicated relaxation room for yoga or Pilates. A personal team of four friendly yet discreet staff will take care of your every need, serving unlimited Perrier Jouet Champagne, mouth-watering meals and fine wines. Children’s lunches and dinners are included, and games, books, toys and sledges are available, so even the kids will be in heaven. A free luxury helicopter trip is really just the icing on the cake.
See in the New Year in style at the ultra-exclusive Chalet Montana. It can be difficult to find the best quality accommodation during the holidays, so take advantage of the special price of £39,500 for a short ski break between 29th December – 3rd January.
This luxury ski-in/ski-out chalet rental is located in sophisticated Courchevel 1850, literally on the slopes’ doorstep. However, you’ll be tempted to never leave the luxurious confines of the property with its games room, pool table, private cinema and wellness suite. Even the hot tub room has a plasma TV, as well as a Hammam and monsoon shower to revitalise ski-weary bodies. The chalet sleeps 12 people across 5 cosy and comfy ensuite bedrooms, where you’ll find complimentary L’Occitane toiletries and piles of fluffy towels and robes.
Imagine skiing in the shadow of Europe’s awe-inspiring highest mountain, Mont Blanc. Chamonix is a wonderful location for all types of people, from social butterflies to families. Even non-skiers will find plenty to amuse themselves with, including an ice rink, cinema, bowling, shops and snow activities like dog sledding. The perfect alpine village deserves the best luxury ski accommodation, and that’s where Chalet Baloo surpasses all requirements.
This pleasingly spacious 5-bedroom luxury chalet offers a high level of comfort and indulgence after a long day on the slopes. The sumptuously furnished chalet comes with not only a hot tub, but a sauna, steam room and swimming pool. Best of all, the hot tub is on a balcony meaning you can luxuriate in bubbles under the stars. At Chalet Baloo, you’ll barely lift a finger since you’ll have a personal chef and other staff to look after you during your stay.
Set amongst the trees in the Les Bossons area of the Chamonix Valley, it’s a five-minute drive to the ski lifts, but you’ll have a chauffeur to take care of that for you. There are currently short stay (3 nights) reduced rates for specific dates in January and February 2017.
Meribel is located in the heart of the largest and most popular ski area in the world, Les Trois Vallées. It has access to ultra-exclusive Courchevel and slopes where you can be confident of snow late in the season. There are also some top-class ski schools and a lively après-ski scene. So where should you stay in this distinguished resort?
We like Chalet Aurora, which is situated in the exclusive Les Brames estate in Meribel, close to both the main lift hub and the lively, bustling town centre. Built in the traditional chalet style, Chalet Aurora is decorated in classic neutral and earthy tones. The lush interiors and wood fire are extremely welcoming after a day of skiing and offer a wonderful respite from the snow-filled bustle of the ski areas.
The chalet’s wonderful features include balconies, terraces on each floor with spectacular views over Mont Vallon, an outdoor hot tub and an entertainment room that includes a pool table. A chef and driver are provided to ensure guests get the most out of their stay. Weekly rates have been reduced from €9,950 to €7,950 based on 10 adults for the weeks beginning 8th or 15th January 2017.
