Founders Andy and Fran Castle established Ultimate Luxury Chalets following the success of sister brand Ski In Luxury. Founded in 2005, Ski In Luxury is an industry leader and innovator in the luxury winter travel sector, providing an independent and knowledgeable service to discerning clients for over 15 years.
