Small family seeks loyal chalet for fun-filled mountain adventures with plenty of snow, good food and home comforts with a generous dose of luxury. Gorgeous Alpine views and log fires would be advantageous. Poky apartments and bunk beds need not apply. Serious candidates will be considered, but only if the price is right. Chalet Alexandra submits an impressive CV, and the references concur. This is the one for you; hired.
Looking for all the world a traditional chalet the glistening sharpness of the walls and the virtually wrap around balconies bely the truth; Chalet Austria is recently built, promising inside all the mod cons of a contemporary property, and yet outwardly exuding Tyrolean style. In a prime position just a couple of minute’s stroll from the Nasserein nursery slopes and the lifts this is solid, family ski holiday territory and just what you’d been looking for. It’s going to be a great week.
Chalet Alexandra extends across an entire floor, with a large, open plan living space accommodating the dinging table and carved, traditional Tyrolean chairs. The ceiling is beautifully wood paneled and the floor is solid wood of the same bright hue. The kitchen blends seamlessly from the same wood, complimented by solid stone work tops. Here you spy the chef at work creating this evening’s delicious family dinner.
On the dining table sits a decadent chocolate cake – here’s one he made earlier - and you are handed a slice with a glass of champagne by your attentive chalet host. As you sit back in the quirky, Austrian apple-green sofa you feel your whole body sink into relaxation. Cosy, homely and unmistakably Austrian chalet Alexandra ticks all the boxes so far.
When you eventually make it to your bedrooms the good news continues; they are large, light and the perfect blend of modern facilities and traditional Alpine chic. With everything on the one floor you can really relax knowing the kids are never far away, and there are no hazardous stairs to worry about. Time for a relaxing soak in the bathtub; each of the en-suites offers contemporary fittings and attractive honey-coloured tiling.
While you’re soaking the kids are kept quiet enjoying a DVD while chef provides the snacks; freshly popped corn. Don’t let them spoil their appetite though, there’s a delicious family meal planned, incorporating all of the children’s favourites. Holiday time together is so special, and you especially enjoy sitting and eating together as a family without having to slave over the oven yourself, and even better; no washing up afterwards.
You do like the thought of a few more ‘grown up’ evenings though. No problem; the chef will happily prepare an earlier supper for the kids and then treat you to a romantic dinner a deux, starting with canapés by the fire and finishing with a nightcap and home made chocolates. They even offer to book a babysitter so you can finish the evening at a bar in town for dancing and cocktails, a tempting thought.
Skiing from Alexandra couldn’t be easier; your boots are warmed and ready for you in the chalet ski room, and you are whisked to the lifts in under a minute by the chalet chauffeur. Better still, you are given a complimentary ski instructor for two days who expertly guides you around the best of the skiing in the Arlberg region, and helps you improve your skiing style at the same time too.
A vacation at Chalet Alexandra is a break for the whole family; you are granted quality family time together on the slopes while your instructor takes care of the route and the restaurant for lunch. Back at the chalet the kids can play in the grounds, out-doing each other with the best snowman, and you can relax with a book in front of the fire, or take a steam in the hamam. Everything is taken care of, leaving you free to enjoy a well-earned break.

No need to rush out of bed - breakfast is laid on. A healthy array of fresh fruit juices, a selection of warming teas and coffee - yoghurts, crispy cereals, juicy fruit and a mouth-watering display of delicious fresh breads & delicate pastries. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? Full breakfast is served every morning. So much choice that you might miss the first ski lift if you're not careful.
Come back after a wonderful day on the mountain to the warmth and comfort of your chalet. Snuggle up on the comfy sofa in front of a crackling fire, with a steaming cup of tea and a generous serving of cake – this is how all afternoons should be. Your chef will prepare a fresh from the oven, sweet treat for your return, so whether your preference is for a hearty sticky Apple and Ginger cake or a delicate Mille-feuille aux framboise is more your thing, there will be something tempting waiting for you. Personally I don’t think you can beat a slice of crispy baguette with lashings of butter and dollops of apricot jam or nutella - but maybe that ‘s just me - the perfect comfort food.
When staying in a catered chalet every night feels like a special occasion, and why shouldn't it, you're on an amazing holiday and it's so good to be alive. You’re dressed and ready for a glass of something chilled with friends and family, ready to regale them with tales of your mountain adventures that may get a little exaggerated for dramatic effect with each rendition. Enjoy the delicious canapés and amuse-bouche freshly prepared by your star in the kitchen.
Take a seat at your own private table - it's time for the main event – a delicious feast, masterfully crafted by your talented chef. With an emphasis on using hand-selected, fresh, local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt in your mouth three course dinner that wouldn't look out of place in a Michelin starred restaurant. Dinner is complimented by a tangy platter of divine local cheeses. Menus can be tailored to suit your tastes and your chef will be happy to prepare everything from a simple supper to fine dining delights.
The chalet provides beer, house wines, a drinks tray of 2 bottle of house spirits and mixers.
The chalet is happy to cater for specific dietary requirements, and will serve an earlier high tea for children. You can talk to your SkiBoutique PA about any specific requests from dietary requirements such as gluten free diets to birthday cakes and favourite dishes. We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted and delivered in resort.
