Chalet Davos, Val D’Isere, France
We’re a teensy bit biased at Oxford Ski… we think ALL our chalets are pretty amazing in lots of different ways! It’s hard for us to single any out as we’ve gone to great efforts to only feature the best for our clients. So, instead of us selecting Chalets for particular mention we thought ‘over to you’ and have listed the eight chalets that received glowing testimonials from discerning clients over the 2016/17 season. If you think we’ve missed one we’re always very happy to receive a testimonial – drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with your recommendations!
“Having the resort drivers worked extremely well and proved to be very useful. They were able to take us wherever we wished at any given time with very little notice. We also found all staff to be very attentive and pleasant.”
Chalet Davos is part of the Chalets Suisses, a small private hamlet on the secluded, sun drenched knoll of Le Crêt, one of the earliest and most charismatic enclaves of Val d’Isère. Enjoy traditional alpine décor fused with cutting edge design allowing you relax in absolute comfort when not out on the slopes. The chalet has been dressed with antique furniture, the finest fabrics, amazingly comfortable squashy sofas. Head out onto the terrace to enjoy the sunken hot tub with spectacular views.
What we love – For those too weary to walk, take advantage of the shared driver service to whisk you to and from the village and pistes throughout the day.
"It was one of the best holidays and the hotel was particularly outstanding. I definitely recommend Alistair as a ski instructor as well."
A recent addition to Zermatt’s exclusive list of smart hotels, this boutique hotel features 8 chalets, its own lounge and restaurant as well as direct access to the slopes. The hotel sits just above the centre of Zermatt, opposite the Sunnegga lift. The hotel's elevated position provides direct views of the Matterhorn from the rather lovely sun terrace. All rooms feature their own balcony or terrace whilst each suite has its own private fireplace.
What we love – You are never far from the slopes with amazing access to the Sunnega ski lift!
"Karen was a pleasure again to speak with. She makes everything so easy. Thank you Karen!"
Designed with a rich contemporary Alpine feel, this hotel offers 38 rooms of which 20 are beautiful suites (some with their own Jacuzzi and Hammam). A luxurious 5* hotel with its own private elevator taking you directly to the slopes, Hotel Le Kaila is a stunning place to stay during your skiing holiday. Facilities include a gourmet restaurant, one of the best ski rooms we have seen and the amazing spa complete with a 600sqm swimming pool, waterfall, Jacuzzi, loungers and treatment room. Perfect for easing those sore muscles after a day on the slopes.
What we love – It has to be the private elevator! What a great way to arrive at the slopes and much more comfortable than walking up in your ski boots!
Chalet Sophia, Verbier, Switzerland
"We had a wonderful time - looked after greatly by Polly our chalet host and the food made by our chef Jacob was amazing!"
A stunning penthouse apartment located in one of Verbier’s most enviable locations. Breath-taking views combined with easy access to both the town centre and Medran lift make this a fantastic chalet for your holiday. Chalet Sophia’s 3 bedrooms are all extremely spacious with en suite bathrooms and plenty of light thanks to the large French windows. The impressive open plan living area is traditionally furnished and incredibly comfortable. Settle back and enjoy a glass of champagne and canapés by the roaring fire whilst your chef prepares supper.
What we love – If you have driven down then you will like being able to tuck your car up in the indoor car park. Then, put your keys away and make the most of the 24 hour driving service!
"A fantastic place. A great Chalet with excellent service. Very difficult to find fault! Everything was excellent."
This chalet is the perfect luxury retreat! A short distance from the ski lifts and with uninterrupted mountain views this is the perfect destination for families and groups. Sleeping 16, you’ll enjoy lots of space to unwind after a day on the slopes. With two dedicated chalet hosts on hand and your own professional in-house chef all you need to do is make the most of the private cinema room, the hot tub on the terrace and of course the skiing! And, after a day on the slopes, why not indulge with a massage in the private treatment room?
What we love – the company owners live in Morzine year round and are always on hand to ensure your holiday runs as smoothly as possible, personally managing all aspects of the business meaning exacting standards are maintained and happy guests want to return!
"I think the staff make the place - all of them were so helpful and enthusiastic. The service was superb - nothing was too much trouble. I would like to congratulate you for choosing such a great chalet."
With bespoke furnishings designed exclusively for the chalet and original works of art from the owners private collection, this is without doubt a stylish place to stay. The dining table even boasts legs from the workshop of Mr. Eiffel (yes, Mr. Eiffel of the Eiffel tower!). A stunning harmony of modern materials fused with traditional building techniques make this one of the best chalets in the Alps. Located in the village of Les Bois, just outside of Chamonix town in one of the most exclusive locations in the Chamonix valley, you’ll be able to enjoy 360 degree views of the Mont Blanc massif, Le Brevent, the Aguille Vert and Les Drus.
What we love – A full compliment of staff including a Chalet Manager, Host/Hostess, Chef and Chauffeur ensure you’re free to do exactly what you want to do on holiday.
"Absolutely perfect holiday. It fitted our requirements exactly. Thank you for organising this and setting up such a success!"
Newly built in 2013, Chalet M is a stunning property finished to the highest standards. The chalet commands one of the most enviable locations in Morzine sitting high on the sunny side of the town with panoramic views across the resort to the slopes of Pleney and Nyon beyond. The main living area includes a fabulous fireplace and in the dining room you’ll find a stunning bespoke walnut table made by local craftsmen. With some of the best spa facilities of any Chalet in the region, you’ll enjoy your time spent relaxing whether it’s in the hot tub located on the terrace (with breath taking views overlooking Morzine) or in the sauna. Take the time to enjoy the services of the in-chalet therapists whilst you’re here.
What we love – the epic view from the hot tub and the overall feel of luxury… it just oozes from every corner of this chalet!
"The staff at Haus Jessica, Mathilde and Tom, were as much a highlight of our stay as the beautiful chalet. They were truly excellent at their craft, incredibly warm, very open but never intrusive. They are a super team and tried to delight wherever they could. For example, bringing Tiger balm to soothe an injury, and baking a Nutella birthday cake (without being asked to) after they learned the 47 year old birthday boy loved Nutella as a child. Truly wonderful."
A beautiful chalet apartment situated in the centre of the village in a prime location. An ideal spot for the novice skiers amongst you with access to the nursery slopes just 6 minutes away. Designed with a traditional alpine interior with contemporary kitchen and bathrooms, the apartment is located on the top two floors of the building resulting in great views from the sunny, south facing balcony off the sitting room. You’ll also enjoy access to the wellness spa facilities located in the apartment building during your stay.
What we love – the mod cons and luxury details which include a Bose sound system, iPod dock, Jacuzzi bath, Molton Brown bath products and collection of music and DVD’s to keep you entertained!
