There’s no greater ski holiday luxury than skiing from your chalet door straight onto the slopes and back again at the end of the day.
One of the main requests we get is for ski-in/ski-out accommodation. This comes as no surprise since there is nothing better than clipping on your skis and heading straight out onto the slopes, avoiding those crammed bus rides and that dreaded ski boot walk whilst lugging your skis, ending up with you feeling exhausted before you’ve even set foot on the mountain. However, help is at hand with our selection of superb ski-in/ski-out chalets which not only offer a superb slopeside location, but luxury living to boot.
