What is a chalet?
The original meaning of the18th Century Swiss-French word Chalet is Herdsman’s hut or Alpine cottage.
Hard to believe when you think about what we use them for today.
Whether you have skied passed or stood outside of one of these impressive wooden dwellings, with their gently sloping roofs with a wide overhang and ornate wooden carvings you must admit they are a far cry from their original intended use.
Nowadays, a chalet can host up to 20+ guests with luxury services rivalling those found in 5-star hotels.
When to travel?

Resorts will generally be quiet. Schools in the UK and France break for Christmas holidays around Mid-December to 4th of January. A busy time in the resorts with plenty of extra festive activities.

Who will be in your group?
There is a lot to think about when booking your luxury chalet. Here are a few pointers to help you on your way.
Who is in your group will determine the type of accommodation you rent and the services and facilities you require.
The amount of people you are bringing determines the number of bedrooms you need. Remember some friends and family will not be compatible in the same room.
Do you need a separate room for your nanny? Require a playroom facility for children? Bunk beds for children. A garden and terrace are useful when it is warmer. How old are your children? How well do they ski? Will you book a place for them in ski school? Or will they ski with family and friends?
The competent skiers will benefit from a ski-in ski-out facility and having their boots pre-heated in the morning. Is the Chalet close to ski lifts? non-skiers will benefit from extra facilities in the chalet, such as; swimming pool, gym, wellness spa and sauna.
