When looking for accommodation for your next luxury ski holiday one of the most important aspects of the property has to be the location. For some, ski in ski out chalets are a must but if you would like to be in the centre of resort with great access to shops, restaurants and many of the aprés ski activities, a centrally located chalet is the one for you. The vast majority of chalets will come with a driver service to take you to the slopes so no need for walking around in ski boots. We explore the best centrally located luxury ski chalets in resorts across Europe.
This stunning luxury chalet in the heart of Courchevel 1850 comes complete with 9 bedrooms; 2 masters and 7 doubles which only take up a part of the 1,000 m2 of living space. Chalet Ormello benefits from all the luxury features one would expect from a chalet of such standing. The spa area has a large indoor swimming pool, steam room, sauna, massage room and outdoor hot tub. Where better to relax after a day in The Three Valleys? Chalet Ormello is just a 4-5 minute stroll downhill into the centre of Courchevel 1850.
If you are looking for a luxury chalet in the centre of Val d’Isere, look no further that Chalet Marco Polo. Being just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Val d’Isere and having your own private driver to take you to the slopes is the best of both worlds. Marco Polo is loaded with all the toys a luxury chalet of this stature would be expected to have; Gold Leaf swimming pool, hot tub, massage rooms, gym and it also boasts its own Scalextric track too. At over 1,000m2 there is plenty of space to be absorbed in this opulent luxury ski chalet.
Chalet Mont Tremblant is a fine example of a luxury chalet in Meribel that has a great central location. From the centre of Meribel, the chalet is just a short stroll away and should take no more than 8-10 minutes – the best part of the walk is that it is mainly flat so both ways are quite easy. The chalet itself is one of the finest chalets in Meribel and has also won awards at the World Ski Awards as the Best Luxury Chalet in France. The chalet is lovely inside and the bedrooms especially are divine, but who can ignore the outdoor pool and hot tub? I for one certainly can’t.
Tignes Le Lac is the main resort out of the 5 that make up the resort of Tignes and this is where Chalet Opale is located. Just a few minutes walk into town you can find the lake, the modern sports complex and many bars, restaurants and shops. The majority of the luxury chalets in Tignes are located down in Les Brevieres but Chalet Opale has the prime position in Le Lac overlooking the lake. The chalet benefits from a large outside terrace which has awesome views over the lake and resort centre itself.
There is a wide range of luxury central chalets in Megeve but when it comes to being in the heart of the resort, there is no better option than Chalet Deer. The property is directly in the centre of this picturesque resort right next the museum and also in close proximity to the tourist office. From Chalet Deer you are just a 3 minute walk from the Chamois ski lift. The chalet is over 500m2 of pure luxury, all the furnishings, fixtures and fitting are to the very highest of standards. If you are a Megeve town centre fan then you must consider a stay in Chalet Deer.
As with Megeve there are not too many luxury chalets in the centre of Verbier but Chalet Dent Blanche is certainly one that is. The “Place Central” which most consider the centre of Verbier is only 2 minutes walk from the chalet with the Medran lift station being a few more minutes away. Most guests will still use the chauffeur service to transport them to the lift as 5 minutes in ski boots is not ideal first thing in the morning or after a long day on the slopes. Dent Blanche is spread over four floors and has stunning views out towards Le Chable, not to mention the stunning wellness area! We feel that Dent Blanche is undoubtedly Verbier’s best centrally located luxury chalet.
Luxury chalets in Zermatt are located all over and all around the iconic Swiss town so having a chalet in the centre of Zermatt is a great benefit seeing as Zermatt is car free. The only vehicles that are permitted in Zermatt are the electro taxis and buses which is one of the reasons Zermatt has such great snow conditions and has the option of skiing 365 days a year!
Chalet Elbrus is part of the Seven Heaven’s complex which is also home to Chalet Aconcagua and Chalet McKinley, so if you have friends looking for luxury accommodation in Zermatt, they can stay next door. The chalets are all only a couple of minutes walk from the Sunegga ski lift and the resort centre is just 3-4 minutes walk past the lifts, making the central location of the chalets very heavenly indeed!
