5 star catered chalet holidays in the most exclusive destinations.
Many alpine lodges are designated 5 star, but it's key to distinguish between mainstream lux (lovely properties on our cheap luxury ski chalets page) and the truly remarkable few, who's near perfect balance of style, location and service conjure a magical ambiance.
We present for your consideration the elite among luxury catered chalets. Impeccable hosting, first class food, wine and childcare. Premium accommodation in the most exclusive ski resorts, these luxury ski chalets afford you a truly exceptional ski holiday.
With designer commissioned interiors and facilities to rival the best hotels and spas, these beautiful properties provide the uppermost level of comfort. Some devote an entire floor to the pursuit of pampering, with the complete privacy that only a private chalet ensures. Melt into a terrace hot tub, steam in a sauna or take a few morning laps (in the swimming pool or on the treadmill)… all in absolute solitude.
Relax after hours with chalet cinemas, games rooms and state of the art entertainment systems. Many luxury catered chalets boast impressive wine cellars, where tasting sessions can be arranged.
Thoroughly schooled in etiquette & hospitality, your private staff have mastered the art of discrete, intuitive and personalised service.
Ask your concierge or chalet girl/boy for advice on the best places to ski and après. To cosset tire limbs, choose a chalet with spa and personal therapist. Between shiatsus, chalets with chauffeur will ferry you between boutique and bubble lift - a godsend for families, as are private nannies, who can be included on request.
With chefs trained in the world's top and often Michelin starred restaurants, guests of the world's best catered chalets can select their own heart's desire, whether a formal banquet to a weeks' worth of tasting menus.
The beauty of catering at the very highest end of the scale is that it's entirely tailored to you - chef will just as deftly knock up family favourites and home comforts. More about luxury ski chalet catering.
