Homely atmosphere, home-cooked meals and attentive hosts - it's easy to see why we book more chalet accomodation than any other holiday. Hearty catering is usually accompanied by wine at supper. 😉
From more modest facilities in cheap ski chalets to our luxury chalets dripping opulence, we've options for all budgets and tastes. And there's not always a clear divide between the two extremes. A chalet with hot tub or swimming pool can be priced similarly to those without, where other things like location are a the trade off. Your holiday can have a very different feel whether you opt for a pad in the centre (fall straight into bed after epic apres), or a piste side ski-in/ski-out chalet (to be out of bed and on the first lifts each morning).
When taking your group of friends or family away, having dibs on a communal space and all meals covered avoids any of the hassle of travelling en-masse and you can find group ski chalets for your exact number, so there's no need to share if you prefer sole-occupancy.

We love a cosy crash-pad to sleep off the legendary St Anton après, and nothing gets you back on that legendary powder as fast as a hearty chalet breakfast - probably why St Anton has the most chalets in all of Austria.
This much loved snow mecca was hosting chalet holidays before the rest even heard of beef bourguignon and, at last count, has more than anywhere else in the world. Properties here show EXACTLY what makes a ski holiday great.
1850 chalets are so glam we advise you wear sunglasses. But it’s not all cool pools and hot tubs, because there are great value options with less bling and all of the charm, in the same perfectly preened ski area.
The tomboy of the Alpine set, Tignes is more fussed about sporting achievement than looking pretty – but if you’re happy to trade choc-box looks for a cheaper stay in the awesome Espace Killy, you’ll have a hoot here.

Born in Switzerland, the alpine chalet really hit the big-time in France. With the widest choice, the cheapest deals, the shortest transfers, more than half of all British chalet bookings are to France. The quintessence of the trad. ski holiday experience.
