A Look Inside A Luxury Ski Chalet

Here at Elegant Address Ski, luxurious chalets in the European Alps are where our expertise lies. We aim to bring you five star service and the very best properties to make your snowy retreat unforgettable.


A Look Inside A Luxurious Ski Chalet



Exterior

First impressions are everything and ski chalets are no different. Using traditional Alpine designs, wooden beams and granite stone are a feature and make these gorgeous properties an inviting and welcoming retreat. 



Living Space

Many of the ski chalets available to rent are of open plan design, making the most of the space and giving you the room to live and relax comfortably. Wood burning fireplaces are an absolute must have feature along with the cosy furnishings, fluffy cushions and chunky throw rugs.



Kitchen

Who could resist wanting to cook on something as charming as this? One of the more traditionally designed kitchens, ski chalets also combine modern amenities with the authentic nature of the chalet itself. 


Bedrooms

After a long day on the slopes, you'll be wanting to curl up in the most relaxing of settings. Bedrooms in ski chalets are high on the list of the most comfortable places to sleep, with large windows to see the exceptional views right from your pillow!


Bathrooms

Does a relaxing bubble bath sound like heaven to you? Or maybe an immersive waterfall shower is just what you need after a tiring skiing day? These elegant bathrooms are something that need to be seen to be believed! Just like many of the other parts of the chalet, a mixture of traditional and contemporary designs are included in the interiors of the properties. 


Cinema Room

If you're taking a break from the slopes for the day, there's still plenty of activities to do in the chalet.
Viewing some of the film industry's classics might be on your to-do list and you can do that in style with top of the range technology at your fingertips. 


Spa/Massage

The ideal finale to an idyllic snowy ski day is a session in the spa. Maybe a full body massage will help loosen out those muscles and let you unwind after your energetic day?


Hot Tub

Want to relax but don't want to be stuck inside? An outdoor hot tub sounds the solution to your problem. Sit back in the swirling water, let the bubbles make your aches wash away and have something just as bubbly to sip as you wind down from the day's adventures.


Views!

And last but certainly not least, why go to the Alps if you can't appreciate the spectacular views?
With balconies and private terraces, you can soak in the snow-topped mountains and forests surrounding you in your own space and your own time.

Our Top Reasons to Visit Megeve


The beautiful picture postcard location of Megeve, situated in the south east of France near the Italian & Swiss borders and became more popular in the 1920's as a luxury ski resort.Retaining the old fashioned and traditional charm whilst offering its high end and glamorous position, this stunning village is completely worthy of its hidden gem status. If luxury, sophistication and fantastic food are you idea of paradise then Megeve may be the ultimate ski destination for you!

Here are our Top Reasons to Visit Megeve


It's the 3rd Largest Ski Area in France


Sitting at the heart of the Evasion Mont-Blanc ski area, Megeve stretches over 445km and contains 220 slopes, 107 ski lifts and 5 incredible snow parks as well as 5 nursery parks for beginner skiers

The area is a great place for all skiing abilities whether you're brand new to the slopes or an advanced snow sport pro! 




The Magical Village Centre

Unlike other larger ski resorts in the European Alps, Megeve has historically shunned the party scene and keeps to the quiet and peaceful side of life. There is lots of space on the glorious pistes around you and you'll never need to worry about the town being packed to the brim.
The charming atmosphere of the village's centre is something to behold. It's car free and has plenty to see and do. Every year, local artists are commissioned to decorate a gigantic Christmas tree in the centre. Locals also take tourists for scenic rides on horse-drawn carriages. 




Its Natural Beauty

Rather than having completely mapped out slopes, Megeve boasts ski slopes with far more intimidating and challenging experiences. You'll be going past stunning rock formations as well as fairytale like woodlands with trees bending under the weight of freshly fallen snow.



Try the High Altitude Dining
