A luxury ski holiday: 8 things you need to consider
If you’re looking to book the very best luxury ski holiday, you’ve come to the right place. Hunter Chalets is all about personal, first-class service and we offer some of the most luxurious chalets in France. Here are our top 8 things to consider when planning your next ski holiday.
Planning a luxury ski holiday
1 Talk to the owner
For your luxury ski holiday, you can take a look at our stylish chalets online or give owner Fin a call. Tell Fin the size of your party and your intended travel dates and he’ll suggest the best chalet for your holiday. Owners Fin and Wendy live in resort and know Morzine and Les Gets inside out, so can answer all of your questions and help you choose the right resort, from family-friendly Morzine to upmarket Les Gets.
2 Use the concierge service
We offer a complimentary concierge service before and during your holiday, so just let us know what you need and we’ll arrange it for you. We can organise for ski equipment to be ready and waiting in the chalet – with a professional team coming in to make sure you have everything you need. We can order fresh croissants from the bakery to be delivered, organise a wine delivery, bring in a spa therapist to make full use of your chalet’s treatment room or pre-book restaurants for you. Our concierge team is based in resort, so you can meet them in person, too.
3 Transfer in style
It’s easy to drive to the chalets, so ask our advice or find out more by reading our driving to Morzine from the UK feature. We don’t organise international flights, so you get the benefit of direct offers from airlines and can use your air miles if you have them. We can arrange transfers up into the mountains from the airport, so ask us to book a private car transfer or helicopter flight. The drive from Geneva Airport takes just over an hour to reach Morzine and Les Gets.
4 Choose a world class chalet
All of our chalets, apartments and penthouses are top-end luxury. You can choose from our self-catering chalets year-round or opt for one of our catered chalets during the winter months. Grande Corniche chalet in Les Gets has won Best Chalet in France at the World Ski Awards – and has been voted one of the best in the world. Crackling fireplaces, hot tubs, indoor pools, glass-fronted saunas, tiered cinemas, incredible views – we only offer the best chalets for our guests.
5 VIP treatment
The Hunter Chalets team will leave a welcome hamper for you in your chalet – and we’ll include a bottle of Champagne to toast your arrival! If you are staying in one of our catered chalets, you’ll be welcomed by your personal chalet hosts, who will make sure you have everything you need during your stay.
5 Book a 24-hour driver
If you’ve booked one of our catered chalets for your luxury ski holiday, you’ll enjoy a 24-hour resort driver service included in your stay. That means we can pick you and your ski gear up and transport you to the ski lifts, take you to mountain restaurants for lunch and pick you up after a night in one of the local restaurants, bars or clubs. It gives you the freedom to enjoy your stay to the full and not worry about driving. If you’re staying in one of our self-catered chalets, you can add our resort driver service at extra cost.
6 Include a personal chef
Our catered chalets have a personal chef five days a week. Our chefs have worked in some of the world’s best restaurants and can tailor their menu for any dietary requirements or children in your group. Our chefs have the creative freedom to plan beautiful dishes from fresh and local produce, all beautifully presented. You’ll be prepared breakfast, afternoon tea if you would like it, pre-dinner canapes and delicious four-course meals five days a week.
7 Complimentary Champagne
Our catered chalets offer complimentary hand-picked wines, Laurent-Perrier Champagne and Italian prosecco throughout your stay, as well as spirits and soft drinks. We also have an extensive list of fine wines and Champagnes to pre-order, so ask us for details.
8 Plan extraordinary experiences
We want to make your luxury ski holiday special, so we’ll go above and beyond to create special moments. It could be a family movie night in the cinema at The Old Macaroni complete with popcorn; a yoga session on the deck at Chalet Aubois with views over the mountains; or making the most of your chalet’s spa treatment room by booking indulgent massages and beauty treatments. If you’d like to organise something special, chat to our concierge or your chalet hosts.
