Chalet La Datcha in Courchevel 1850 is another chalet set to take Courchevel by storm. The chalet has been finished to an exceptionally high standard. Take the hand painted fireplace for example.

Megeve used to be a sleepy little alpine village until the Rothschild family became disenchanted with St Moritz and started spending their winter vacations in the resort. The resort soon grew and these days is seen as a playground for the rich and famous. The demand for luxury properties has risen and Chalet Des Sens is the latest property in Megeve to be welcomed onto the Ultimate Luxury Chalets portfolio. The chalet has all the facilities you would expect of one of Megeve’s most impressive properties. The swimming pool is bathed in light by the large floor to ceiling windows and the design combines clean cut furniture with varnished woods. If you are looking for a unique luxury ski chalet in Megeve then this could be the perfect chalet for you.
Val Thorens is one of the most popular resorts in Europe but one thing Europe’s highest resort has been missing is a high end luxury chalet. Val Thorens’ only luxury ski chalet is like no other. For a start it has a golf and a Formula One simulator. The views from the chalet are breathtaking and the property benefits from being ski-in/ski-out. The internal space is a whopping 1200m. Chalet La Datcha VT has everything you could ask for from 2 cinema rooms, an indoor and outdoor hot tub and a swimming pool. This is the first luxury chalet in Val Thorens but will it be the last?

One of the newest additions to the Ultimate Luxury Chalets’ list of luxury accommodation in Courchevel 1850 is Chalet Black Pearl. This chalet is perfect for large groups. It has 8 individual bedrooms and a total square meterage of 1350m2. It is big!! The biggest and best feature of the chalet has to be the indoor swimming pool and spa area.

The Portes du Soleil is emerging as one of the top luxury ski areas. The resorts of Morzine and Les Gets have seen a large increase in the number of luxury ski chalets.
