Chalet N in Oberlech wouldn’t look out of place in a James Bond movie. He would arrive by private jet into Innsbruck, where Chalet N’s helicopter transfer would be waiting to receive him.
Once at Chalet N, a martini, shaken not stirred, would be chilling on the black bar. Whether James Bond would perch on a zebra skin barstool or stride past is another question. His Bond Girl would be waiting, seductively poised, on the magnificent day bed that juts out into the rather spectacular swimming pool.
Perhaps after a martini, it would be time to breeze through the rain shower and into the double massage suite. Even Bond has to stop occasionally. There’s probably a higher chance of this when his Bond Girl and the attentive therapy staff at Chalet N are teasing out the knots.
From the relaxation room, via the sauna to the state of the art outdoor hot tub. Sleek and sunken, only the hot tub at Chalet N would be worthy of a secret agent. With uninterrupted views across the slopes and to the snowy peaks beyond, this seems all very serene for Bond.
Perhaps after a second martini and a round of baccarat chemin de fer, things might change.
As a symbol of glamour and sophistication, James’ Bond Girl will have no qualms about getting ready in any one of Chalet N’s seven suites. With each bedroom featuring a luxurious living area and dressing room, even those with the highest of standards will be more than satisfied. Knowing the state-of-the-art features, combined with regional materials and latest technology in each suite, we shouldn’t really have doubted the suitability for James Bond and his female sidekick. Combined with the undivided attention of their very own butler, you know that advice, reservations and requests for the award-winning chef will be met with a similar speed to one of Bond’s gadgets.
The evening’s proceedings rightly start in one of the finest wine cellars the Alps has even seen. Notable not only for its collection of fine wines but for the experience enhancing interior design. Alternatively, perhaps a glass of champagne on the terrace’s fur drapped snowfa would be the location of choice for a canapé soirée.
Either way, we better move swiftly onto dinner before any antagonists arrive across the slopes. The butler will ensure that everyone is seated and that no one can get between Bond and fondue.
If Chalet N was the latest Bond movie, we’re sure it would be a Licence to Thrill.

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? 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.

Take a seat at your own private table - it's time for the main event – a delicious feast, masterfully crafted by your talented chef.
