Austria’s luxury scene is more focussed on its grand hotels than catered ski chalets – but that’s not to say you can’t find a handful of downright incredible lodgings if you know where to look for them.
The chefs in Austria’s poshest mountain lodgings pull out all stops to make your dining experience incredible. Wake up to hot breakfasts with an army of yoghurts, cereals, fresh breads and jams to fuel up for the day ahead. Later, come home to a cuppa with cake, bread and savoury snacks, before champagne, canapes and a three or four course dinner (paired with excellent house wines) to end the day. On the cook’s day off, your host will point you in the direction of the best restaurants in town, and take care of table bookings if need be.
While France and Switzerland are famed for having the most cavernous chalet spas, Austria’s luxury chalets aren’t short of a wellness facility or two. The most exclusive have a gaggle of private Hammams, saunas and outdoor hot tubs for guests to use, while others offer shared access to excellent spa facilities and swimming pools.
