What a project! You invite a group of your very nearest and divinely dearest, or some well-deserving colleagues, to the Alps. The purpose might be a family celebration, a reunion to reaffirm the unfailing bonds of friendship, or a gracious ‘thank-you’. You will escape the conventional, the routine or the humdrum of professional interactions. You will find a place to bond and to harmonise. You need a luxurious playground with the facilities for such an occasion. You need Le Chalet.
From the moment you step out of the helicopter on Le Chalet’s private helipad, or however else you choose to arrive at this privileged location that gazes across to Mont Blanc, two elements are crystal clear. Privacy and fun. Sometimes they cancel each other out but your choice of Le Chalet is a win/win situation and you have won them both.
You are on the sunny side of the valley, your eyes follow the contours of the magnificent mountains in front of you to the one that reigns supreme, the massif of Mont Blanc. Deer emerge from the shade of surrounding woodland to leap across a field of snow. You can breathe, everything is going to be perfect. The team at Le Chalet are well briefed and highly professional, you can leave it to them and direct your focus where you need to. Which will be, essentially, about pure the enjoyment shared between you and your party. And staring at that mountain.
The space as you enter this modern alpine palace is calm. With carefully curated artwork and decorative designer pieces throughout, the atmosphere is elegant. South facing windows serve as a reminder of the magnificence out there among the rocky cliffs, the ice-filmed crags. With three lounges and twelve bedrooms, there is accommodation for up to twenty-six people to relax into luxury, to find quiet when they need to, perhaps in the peace of their bathroom with a view to the highest mountain in western Europe. They can find focus around the board-room table where minds sharpened by that awe-inspiring landscape find solutions to problems that appeared, back in the city, intractable. And then they can come together for the best party they have ever experienced.
The chef has worked in a Michelin star kitchen and brings that wealth of experience to your plate. Everything that goes into the exquisitely prepared dishes is fresh, organic and responsibly sourced. With an expertly stocked wine cellar, a Champagne station and a cocktail bar, this is a venue that understands the ingredients of a celebration. It also recognises the sybaritic pleasures of warmth and watery indulgence when the air outside is crisp and the ground blanketed in snow. The six-metre pool is equipped with jets against which you can put some effort into your swimming, and whether you relax in the bubbling jacuzzi or the heat of the sauna, that mountain landscape is right there, through the glass.
Of course, this connection with Mont Blanc means that you are in Chamonix, only an hour from Geneva airport by luxury chauffeured transfer if you have opted against the helicopter. Many of the party will be drawn by the world class skiing, but others will find that Chamonix is rich with options. A ride on the rail tracks up to the Mer de Glace, a husky drawn sledge, they will fall in love with the mountains. Did we mention love? This venue possesses that special beauty worthy of marriage festivities that everyone will remember. And it knows how to have a party.

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. 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. Dinner is accompanied by carefully selected wines and is served on 6 nights of your stay.
The chalet provides house wine, beer and soft drinks which are included. There is a wine list for upgrades (payable locally).
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.
