Chalet Illimani is a stunning family retreat which combines traditional Tyrolian craftsmanship with elegance and a relaxing home from home atmosphere. What struck us when we entered this chalet is the sense of space that this luxury ski property exudes. Perfect for families and groups of friends alike, Chalet Illimani has everything you could wish for in a luxury family chalet.
The epitome of tranquility, Chalet Illimani is in a great spot, located in Pettneu at the edge of a forest in a quiet sunny position with views up to the Hohe Riffler glacier. The chauffeur service is available at the drop of hat to take guests over to the main ski lifts in St Anton, which is just a short 6-8 minute drive. Families can also enjoy the small local ski area, perfect for the little ones and beginners too, which is just a snow balls throw from the chalet.
Set over four expansive floors and boasting upwards of 400 sq metres of living space, Chalet Illimani is blessed with ample space. The chalet can comfortably sleep eight adults and four children, and has an additional staff bedroom which also works well as a bedroom for a nanny. Entering the appealing entrance hall we were immediately struck by the sense of space.
Hand crafted terracotta tiles flow through double wooden doors and into the drawing room where a grand open fireplace forms the heart of the room. Beautifully furnished with aged leather chairs, antique Austrian hand painted furniture, Moroccan light fittings and contemporary touches, Illimani is a stunning property. The charming open plan kitchen and dining space has been conceived as a traditional Austrian Stube which can cater for upwards of fourteen guests.
Two double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms are located on the first floor, with high exposed old wood beam ceilings, a stunning feature throughout the chalet. One of the doubles boasts its own fire place and a walk in wardrobe and both bedrooms have access to the expansive balcony. There is an additional double bedroom on this floor and the cosy children's room which features four singles in the form of two bunk beds, this room benefits from ample space and plenty of toys to keep the children happy and entertained for hours on end.
The whole of the top floor is dedicated to the impressive master bedroom, with an en suite bathroom and separate toilet. This room enjoys its own private balcony which offers up the perfect place to enjoy the stunning views across the Arlberg valley and the mountain vistas beyond.
No luxury ski ranch is complete without a spa area and Illimani does not disappoint. Located on the lower ground floor of the chalet there is a sauna comfortably seating six. The spa also features a cold water bucket shower and a relaxation area with a large flat screen TV. Also located on this floor is the games room which features a table tennis table. A separate outside entrance down to this floor takes guests to the heated ski room, with boot warming racks and storage for winter warmers.

“Modern family chalet yet with the charm of a Tyrolian home, Chalet Illimani in St Anton sleeps 8 adults and 4 children, with a further staff bedroom for a nanny. Aside from the games room, table tennis and draws full of toys, the chalet is surrounded by open spaces so fantastic for sledging or making snowmen.”

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 3 bottles of house spirits and mixers. Champagne is served with canapés on 6 nights of your stay.
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.
