The resort of St. Moritz in Switzerland is renowned for its glitz and glamour, but it is a resort that should not be overlooked for some exceptional skiing. The mountain is vast and because a high percentage of visitors do not actually ski, it is relatively uncrowded during the busy weeks of the season. The three linked ski areas provide much to suit all abilities from the rolling intermediate pistes of the Corviglia to the steep slopes and glacier of Diavolleza.
One of my favourite quotes from a St. Moritz local…."I prefer not to take the gondola up the mountain with the other skiers, I arrange for a helicopter to drop me off at the top instead, it is much quicker!". Seems very logical to me.
Chalets (your private home in the Alps!)
The resort is better known for its hotels, but we have some great luxury chalets. One of our favourite hidden gems is the Chesetta in Silvaplana. It is one of our favourites, but most definitely the most luxurious and understated private luxury chalets available to rent in St. Moritz. The property is currently available from 20th December until 3rd January at the rate of CHF 170,000 on a fully catered basis.
"Staying at Chesetta is not like a break in a five-star hotel, it's like staying with wealthy relatives who can't do enough to make you happy" Financial News
"The perfect escape for those in search of slope-side respite for all the family " Harper's Bazaar
