Brambleski really raises the bar to create chalet holidays fit for royals - we’re talking some of the plushest properties on the planet with hotel-worthy facilities and slicker-than-slick service.
Usually booked in 7-day slots, much of this luxury chalet and apartment collection can be found in the Swiss resort of Verbier (legendary for its terrain, parties and famous following). You’ll also find a heavenly handful in other top resorts across the Swiss, French and Austrian Alps.
While travel isn’t included with the initial price, we’ll gladly add that on for you. Let us know what you want - rail travel, first class flights, private planes, airport lounges, helicopter transfers or whatever else – we’ll move mountains to meet your preferences.
When it comes to the catering, often you can choose between catered and self-catered, though a few properties are either/or. Besides your chalet chef and hosts, these holidays usually come with the addition of an instructor-concierge service, introducing you to the slopes and what’s what in resort.
A few extra features available as ‘add-ons’ might be those all-important lift passes, the highest quality ski equipment, fun-filled childcare or an in-chalet massage service.
Brambleski have collected over a hundred of the most luxurious chalets in the alps, built and decorated by some of the best in the business. Think thick timber, socking great windows and one-of-a-kind furnishings from roll-top copper bath tubs to Persian rugs and showstopper fireplaces… The finest properties come with jaw-dropping facilities such as private pools, spas, games rooms, cinemas – in a couple of cases an indoor climbing room. Location-wise, even if you’re already seconds from the slopes, there’s a chauffeur on hand to whisk you to your chosen lift.
Room configurations suit all sorts of groups, with spacious master suites as well as doubles galore, bunk rooms for kids and twin beds. Sometimes neighbouring chalets can be booked together for large parties. You can expect all of this gobsmacking goodness to be neatly packaged with an exquisite service from chalet staff throughout your stay.
Chances are, the food you’ll tuck into on a catered package will be some of the finest in the Alps.
As part of the ‘Alpine Classic’ service, meals are prepared by experienced chefs – often with Michelin-star experience. They’ll conjure up a fresh breakfast and four course evening meal on five nights. Wine’s included - mostly sourced from local caves and picked with a range of palettes in mind. You usually have the option of designing the menu, so as to enjoy all your favourite dishes and ensure any dietary requirements are accommodated.
The ‘Brambleski Alpine Luxe’ service is all of the above, plus a little more… Think a breakfast special each day and the addition of a revitalising daily afternoon tea with scrumptious just-made treats, ready to greet you after a day on the slopes.
On one evening of the week, chalet hosts have a day off, so instead of an evening meal in the chalet, you’ll have the opportunity to check out one of the local restaurants. Bearing in mind the high class resorts these chalets can be found in, you’re never very far from an acclaimed restaurant.
You can also opt for good old-fashioned Bed & Breakfast if you like the idea of eating out for lunch and dinner. A slap-up spread will kickstart your day, with treats like pastries, meats, cheeses and more, accompanied by tea, coffee and juice. Hosts are still on hand to take care of keeping your linen and towels fresh, and ensuring your chalet stays spick and span.
Whether you’re bringing a chef from home, cooking your own ski chalet showstoppers or opting to eat out, most of these chalets are available on a self-catering basis too. Kitchens come kitted out with all the latest mod cons and you’ll find well-stocked shops - sometimes even farmers markets - in these resorts, as well as plenty of fine restaurants for dining out. If you’re not bringing transport, no problem as a chauffeurs can be arranged to whisk you to grocery shops, eateries and anywhere else. Housekeeping’s usually still included, keeping hassle heavenly minimal.
Around half of Brambleski’s properties come with a bubbling hot-tub and even more have a private sauna - two deliciously soothing treats after a day in the great alpine outdoors.
In smaller chalets, these might be stars of the show, while in bigger chalets they’ll come as part of a private spa among facilities like pools, gyms and hammams…
Bearing in mind this collection includes some of the most downright deluxe ski chalets on the planet, it’s no surprise many properties have their own pool.
You can fine-tune your front crawl in around 20 of Brambleski’s finest chalets, where each swimming pool seems more impressive than the next. There are indoor pools, outdoor pools, panoramic pools, infinity pools… Pools as part of spas, pools tiled in marble, infinity edged pools and pools with waterfalls, counter currents and more.
Pools provide the perfect warm-up and cool-down for skiers and snowboarders, keep non-skiers fabulously occupied and if you’ve kids in tow, bring hours of splashing-about fun.
To view all properties with pools under the Brambleski umbrella, select ‘swimming pool’ in our search filters.
These are set up as apartments or penthouses, the majority sleeping between 4 and 14 guests. If you’re looking for something on a bigger scale, some apartment complexes can sleep just shy of 50 guests in several separate units. This type of accommodation gives an ideal balance of private and sociable times during your holiday - many have a combination of spa and entertainment facilities, shared with guests from other apartments. Though ski apartments are generally sold on a self-catered basis, the luxury nature of this operator means you can often book these properties with meals included. You’ll be catered for corkingly, with three meals a day, similar to the arrangements for catered chalets, but all in the privacy of your own apartment.
Children are welcomed with open arms in most properties, but you can use the ‘family friendly’ filter on this page to check which are best suited to youngsters.
For a fabulous time away with the family, the Brambleski properties are hard to beat. Your concierge and chalet staff are on hand throughout your stay to take care of any arrangements that you or your offspring might need – be that booking the best family restaurants or conjuring up new snow games to tire them out before bedtime... Ski lessons can be arranged, whatever the age and chefs can whip up an early kid’s supper to your requirements too.
The best family friendly chalets include things like childcare and fun facilities like cinemas, games rooms and swimming pools.
We offer all properties at the best available rates. There are discounted rates on these chalets from time to time – sort the results by ‘biggest discount’ to see what’s available. Often the very beginning and end weeks of the season can cost considerably less than high season weeks, which is a great way to experience this level of luxury without the peak price tag.

Like a lot of their properties, Verbier in Switzerland is this operator’s true ‘home’, and they operate from an office there. This is the very same place that their story first began over a decade ago, with one chalet in their first winter. They’ve come a long, luxurious way since then, and we’ve loved working with them as they’ve grown, season after season.
