5 Best Luxury Ski Chalets for New Years
Whether it’s New Year’s 2023, New Year’s 2024, or a New Year further into the future: a vacation with family and friends during this festive time of year will be a memory guaranteed to last a lifetime. Keeping with the winter season and cold evenings, one of the perfect getaways during this holiday period is a ski vacation.
France, Switzerland, Austria, and Italy all have resorts with perfect snow conditions, excellent pistes, and exciting towns. Wake up in one of Europe’s luxury ski chalets to the maid serving fresh coffee and breakfast on the balcony, then head to the private spa and warm up the muscles in the sauna before heading to the mountains by a private chauffeur.
After an exhilarating day skiing, return to your property for a swim in the private pool whilst the Michelin star chef serves a 6-course dinner with unlimited cocktails. To finish this perfect evening, take a stroll into town and grab a few further cocktails before the chauffeur picks you up again.
