Traditional vs Modern Luxury Ski Chalets

Traditional vs Modern Luxury Ski Chalets

Exposed timber beams, rustic stone walls, roaring log fires – everything you could possibly want from a traditional ski chalet. Many people love a cosy, traditional chalet that oozes chocolate-box appeal for their luxury ski holiday, and in our portfolio, traditional certainly doesn’t mean outdated or old fashioned. Traditional ski chalets are some of the most luxurious and sought-after alpine accommodation. If you can’t think of anything more perfect than a quintessential wooden cabin full of authentic alpine charm surrounded by snowy trees, a traditional chalet will be perfect for you.

However, if you’d prefer extravagant furnishings, glass décor and voluptuous fur throws, a cutting-edge modern chalet will be everything you’re looking for, and more. While these things aren’t necessarily how a traditional ski chalet should look, modern doesn’t mean no character. Some of the most ultra-modern chalets are full of personality and charm. If you have an eye for detail, you’ll love modern chalets that are full of bespoke furniture and art – the little details really do make all the difference.

Whether you desire traditional charm or modern contemporary, there will be a luxury ski chalet to suit your taste…
