6 of the Best Self-Catered Luxury Ski Chalets for Christmas 2022

For the very best in luxury ski chalets with the ultimate in freedom, self-catering offers you and your family everything you need. With our stunning range of lavish self-catering options, choosing when and where to enjoy your meal does not mean having to compromise on comfort and luxury. 

For those looking to spend more time on the mountain, have the flexibility to return to the chalet at a time that suits you, or explore all that apres-ski has to offer, a self-catered luxury ski chalet is a perfect choice. Dine out and explore apres-ski or cook yourself something special and enjoy the stunning facilities. Choose a different restaurant every night, discover a hidden gem; the choice is yours when you are catering for yourself. 

We explore some of the best self-catering luxury ski chalets that are still available for Christmas 2021 below. 


Antares, Meribel

Antares is a collection of six chalets that offer flexible accommodation for 4-18 guests in luxury, contemporary apartments. 

The double bedrooms feature ensuite bathrooms or shower rooms, with great spaces that are eye-catching as they are luxurious. Take some time to relax in the shared spaces that Antares has to offer – Lounge 1709 is the perfect place to relax with a hot drink or enjoy an aperitif, and with regular tasting events you can sample delicious wines that have been specially chosen by the resident sommelier. Take time to relax in the Antares Spa Meribel, where you can enjoy a swim in the pool, relax in the steam room, or take your fitness up a gear with personal trainers and the fitness suite. 

The ski-in/ski-out access to the piste is matched by the 24-hour shuttle service that can take you to the resort centre in just five minutes. Guests can also take advantage of the in-chalet babysitting to enjoy the apres-ski, or speak to the team to arrange in-chalet dining or arrange grocery delivery. 

This beautiful accommodation is a wonderful combination of private spaces and the service that you would expect from a 5* hotel – what more could you want from your luxury ski chalet. 


Almajur, St. Anton

This elegant chalet is just a short (three minute) walk from the Nasserein gondola, and the spacious, bright, and elegant accommodation sleeps 10 guests in five ensuite bedrooms. 

The drawing room is a perfect place to relax after a day on the slopes, or you can spend time watching your favourite classic films in the cinema room. With three floors, there are so many spaces to explore. Guests can enjoy all that the chalet has to offer, including supplied bathrobes and bath and beauty products.

Every bedroom is perfectly appointed, offering comfort and luxury in each space. Traditional touches like exposed beams are made bright and airy with all the space and large windows. As a family, you can spend time enjoying the open fire in the open plan living space with the most comfortable sofas. 

You can make the most of the separate kitchen and dining area by arranging a pre-arrival shopping service, allowing you to take in the sumptuous surroundings from the balconies. St Anton offers the ultimate in apres-ski, so you’ll never run out of ways to spend your evening. 


Chalet Ibron, Zermatt 

Perfectly positioned just 200m from the Matterhorn Express lift station and less than four minutes’ walk to the resort centre, this is the chalet for you if you’re looking for a luxury ski holiday that offers skiing and apres-ski right on your doorstep. 

Chalet Ibron provides the perfect blend of alpine cosiness and contemporary chic. Tastefully decorated throughout, the entire building is picturesque, featuring natural stone and alpine timber with soft and comfortable furnishings. Guests have a choice of multiple rooms in this three-storey chalet, with the master bedroom having an enviable private sauna. Chalet Ibron sleeps eight, making it perfect for an alpine family getaway, or simply enjoy with a group of friends. 

The pièce de résistance of this property is certainly the balcony, allowing guests to relax and take in their alpine surroundings and the staggering mountain views. 


Chalet Venus, Zermatt

Chalet Venus is a cosy chalet apartment that sleeps six in three gorgeous and luxuriously appointed double bedrooms. The master has a Jacuzzi bath as well as a shower and WC. Just two minutes’ walk from the Sunnegga Express base lift station and four minutes from the resort centre, you and your family can enjoy the full flexibility that self-catering offers by spending as much time on the slopes – or enjoying apres-ski – as you like. 

One of the most eye-catching features of Chalet Venus is the ideally positioned wrap-around terrace that offers a great view of the Matterhorn – the perfect place to enjoy the sunset over the piste. Inside you will find traditional Swiss design through the natural stone and wood, blended expertly with modern stylistic touches to make this a comfortable and contemporary place to stay. Next door is the wonderful Hotel Christiania, which has the largest swimming pool in Zermatt – so you can take a swim for the ultimate in relaxation. 


Chalet Jupiter, Val D’isère

Sleeping up to eight guests in opulent luxury and comfort, Chalet Jupiter is set over three levels, with the master bedroom nestled in the eaves. Each bedroom is ensuite, and there is a choice of relaxation options – choose the traditional hammam or the outdoor hot tub on the large south-facing balcony. 

The first floor offers a spacious, open-plan kitchen, dining and living area that blends traditional chalet-style materials with unique, contemporary touches and modern furnishings – much like the rest of the impressive, luxurious chalet. 

The resort is ideally located ten minutes from the ski lift, with the resort on the doorstep to give you access to everything you’d possibly need. Chalet Jupiter also offers options for ‘contactless catering’, where your food and drink for the week is delivered at your door to make it as simple as possible.


Chalet Le Manoir, Alpe d’Huez 

Chalet Le Manoir is right next to the piste, which is perfect for guests that want ski-in/ski-out access and amazing views.

Sleeping up to 12 people in comfortable and wondrous surroundings, with flexible accommodations in six well-appointed bedrooms, Chalet Le Manoir is the perfect property for large families or even groups of friends to get together.

Enjoy the tastefully designed interior, featuring cosy fabrics, stunning lighting and thoughtful design to create the ultimate Alpine escape. Chalet Le Manoir is also just ten-minute walk to the centre, so guests can take advantage of the wonderful apres-ski scene in Alpe d’Huez. This makes self-catering simple and easy, with the options to check out the restaurants of Alpe d’Huez for the evening.  After a delicious dinner, return to the chalet and relax in your own personal luxury spa, complete with a hot tub and sauna. Otherwise, chill out and unwind on the private balcony that faces the piste for unbelievable views.
