The indoor swimming pool at Chalet Le Namaste complete with wave machine and mood lighting
If you’re anything like us you’ve probably already started dreaming about your next ski holiday! There is no doubt, holidaying in some of the most incredible ski resorts across Europe is addictive. And nothing helps you make the most of your skiing more than the ability to ski directly in and out of your luxury chalet. Not only do you get to the slopes faster at the beginning of the day, allowing you to enjoy the freshly groomed pistes, but you’re first back into the cosy warmth of your chalet where a hot steam filled shower or bath awaits you after a cold day on the slopes! So, with this in mind, we’re taking a look at four of the absolute best Ski-In/Ski-Out chalets available for the 2017/18 season.
