What makes a catered chalet stay so special

Why stay in a ski chalet? Many people often wonder what the difference is in a chalet versus a hotel. Some ask is a chalet better than a hotel. In a nutshell, a chalet stay can take the hassle out of your ski holiday. Especially when holidaying with families or large groups, it is often time-consuming figuring out where you will dine for dinner or what activities you should arrange to keep the children amused. With the luxury of a private chef, dedicated chauffeur service and a personal chalet host, it means you will have more time to spend on the slopes and to enjoy those personalised luxuries. Check out our other blogs for all our tips for first-time skiers and choosing the right resort for you.

It is great for groups and families

Chalet stays are especially suited to groups and families as everyone can be together in one place. Rather than booking separate accommodations or simply having many rooms spread across the one hotel, a chalet means that you are all together in one group with the property to yourselves. Children have lots of room to play games; while adults can relax in the spacious living area or panoramic terrace.

Private chef and bespoke menus

With a chalet stay, everything is catered to your preferences. Your private chef will be on hand to create bespoke menus with specialised dishes for the children. Not only sample luxurious breakfasts and mountain dining at its best, enjoy treats like decadent afternoon tea, alpine picnics and champagne and canapés. A bonus with most chalet stays is complimentary soft drinks, wines and spirits for the duration of your stay.

Dedicated chauffeur service

When you stay at a ski chalet two of many priorities include convenience and proximity to the slopes. While most hotels have a complimentary secluded shuttle service, chalets often offer a dedicated chauffeur service. This means that you can reach the slopes whenever you want and return home without having to wait for the next pick up time. It also means that you can explore beyond the nearby slopes, head on to après ski celebrations and head out on non-ski activities with ease.

You will have a dedicated chalet host

Enjoy the luxury of having a dedicated chalet host on hand to organise any detail for you. Whether its arranging in-house babysitting services or mountain lunches, nothing is too much hassle. Especially important for groups and families, it is good to know there is someone there to make your holiday a seamless one.

Your very own après ski location

Though we all enjoy après ski celebrations in the resort’s top spots, it is always nice to have a private chalet where you can celebrate together as a group. Enjoy a glass of bubbly on the terrace with friends before heading to nearby après bars or sitting down for a decadent feast prepared by your private chef.

Private space for relaxation

A stay in a luxury ski chalet means ample private space. All chalets are different, but they often have luxury touches like outdoor Jacuzzis, steam rooms, saunas and cosy firelit living rooms. This is great for groups and families as it means everyone can relax in the afternoon before gathering again in the evening for dinner.
