Overview

The chronicles of narnia

Being the highly intelligent person you are, you know that you should never judge a book by its cover, and here is the proof in chalet equivalent terms. From the outside Chalet Arolla is a pretty but fairly unassuming looking chalet - perhaps with a little touch of Narnia, as it nestles in the snow-covered pine trees. But inside you’ll be delighted by the space, the luxurious comfort and the cosy ambience.

Located in a small enclave of chalets, on a little side road that you will miss if you blink, is this lovely chalet that is full of surprises - don't worry, there are no large mystical lions inside. Firstly its much larger than you imagine, as it’s built into the hillside which means that the bedrooms are on the ground floor and the main living area is upstairs - so you get the most out of the magical views. The chalet is also bright, light and modern with a wonderfully welcoming feel.

The piste is just a short walk from the chalet and when you’re back after a great day on the slopes, there is a lovely spa area on the lower ground floor with steam room, power shower and outdoor hot tub to gently sooth your tired limbs. Or enjoy a moment or two of quiet contemplation, with tea and cake on the sunny balcony. Or perhaps you’d rather have cocktail seating at the elegant bar area or maybe a gentle snooze on the comfy sofas in front of the fire.  Luckily you don’t have to choose – you’re here all week so you’ve got plenty of time to enjoy all the facilities.

Chalet Arolla is managed by a charming husband and wife team, Peter and Lesley who will look after you from start to finish with wonderful food, friendly service and lots of advice about the resort and the 3 Valleys skiing.  There isn’t a driver service with the chalet but if you’d prefer not to do the short walk to the slopes, we can arrange a daily service for you.

C.S.Lewis's famous book was a captivating tale of escape to another world, filled with bold adventure - isn't that what every ski holiday should be about. Chalet Arolla can be the perfect base for you and your family and friends to write your own stuff of legends.

WHAT OUR GUESTS THINK

Chalet Arolla is a magical place in a beautiful setting.  In the evening one is welcomed into a warm, stylish and comfortable sitting room to enjoy drinks at the bar or lounging on the sofas.  A delicious dinner is then served at the candlelit dining table.  Lots of fun and laughter.  Waking in the morning to a view of the mountains after a wonderful nights sleep and then a great shower. Breakfast, served by friendly staff, is another treat, enjoying the views, drinking coffee, planning the day ahead.

Brenda M - March 2015

Beautiful, elegant, sophisticated ski chalet destination. Loved the steam room and outdoor Jacuzzi and close to the slopes and action too. Views to swoon for …..

WHAT WE THINK

The term 'hidden gems' is rather over-used in travel but it is truly the case for Chalet Arolla, which is tucked away down a small cul de sac in Le Plateau area of the resort. This is a beautiful chalet in a peaceful location but just a few minutes walk from the Doron piste. Lovely outdoor hot tub & sunny balconies make this a great holiday base.

Gastronome

Do you love food? I don't know many people that don't - there is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. But when that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience of high end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We hand-pick our chalet partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered ski chalets: 

A perfect start to the day

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? On the staff day-off, a continental breakfast is provided for you. So much choice that you might miss the first ski lift if you're not careful. 

 

High tea temptations

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.

 

Celebrate with Canapés 

Enjoy a Champagne reception on your first night but 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. 

 

Serving up a sensuous feast

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 served on 6 nights of your stay.

 

Let the good times flow 

The chalet provides a choice of wines with dinner and serves champagne on your first night. There is an honesty bar of beer, wine, spirits and mixers.

 

Children & dietary requirements 

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.
