We've all sacrificed at least one Christmas without our friends and families around us, but that shouldn’t mean we're not all making plans to put this right!
With open space, incredible views, stunning interiors and everything you could need to shut off and unwind, a luxury chalet in the Alps could be just the answer to your problems. Soak away your stresses in the hot-tub, sweat it out in the hammam or simply indulge in the finest food and drink.
From France to Switzerland and Italy to Austria, the team here have chosen their top picks for a festive escape in 2021...
With availability for peak dates hotting up, Christmas is an ideal (and greatly under-utilised) period to step into your bindings and relax in the lap of luxury.
Of course, just like all of our chalet rentals, your booking is carbon offset by us at no extra cost to you, so you can enjoy your escape safe in the knowledge you're helping invest in critical projects to protect these delicate environments for future generations... Further information on our environmental commitment can be found here.
