Best for… big families (who like the finer things)
This grand chalet is ideal for luxury-loving families. Imagine a five-star hotel shrunk to the dimensions of a six-bedroom chalet, complete with a butler, driver and ski fitters and masseuses on hand, and you’ll get an idea of what it’s like, starting with the champagne reception on arrival. The superb chef greets guests before dinner to talk through the menu…. There’s also a cinema room, gym, pool, steam room, bar and spa, plus a hot tub. Settle in with a glass of champagne and watch the skiers zip down the mountain … Stella loves: Afternoon teas in the fire-lit sitting room. Out and about: If you’re a strong enough skier, you can get to Switzerland and back, via a network of slopes and cable cars, in a day. Closer to home, break up your day with lunch at Le Vaffieu..Or, if you’re daring enough, go night-sledging – bumpy but exhilarating.
Seven nights from £1,870 per person, including breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner on five nights, plus a resort driver and open bar. Rates based on 12 guests sharing; call The Chalet Edit on 020 8133 1130 or visit thechaletedit.com
