St Martin de Belleville has just brought all the Vs to the luxury chalet market. This highly exclusive chalet ventures into new heights of style and luxury thanks to the incredible attention to interior design, contemporary Alpine details and the most sumptuous furnishings. We believe that Chalet Verdet has every right to be pleased with itself and we’re not surprised it looks forward to greeting you this winter.
As your friends in high places, we know that day upon day, hour upon hour of meetings and commuting in the depths of February takes its toll. We know that one certain way to vitalize your winter self is with jaw-dropping mountain scenery and some of the best skiing in the Alps. If you are nodding your head and wishing that was you right now, then Chalet Verdet is the one for you. Located in the little secret that is Villarabout, your perfect luxury chalet is a mere two-minute chauffeured drive to the slopes of St Martin de Belleville. Be reassured that Chalet Verdet knows the importance you place on balancing idyllic tranquillity with the vigour a new morning brings and the need for convenience. With warmed ski boots underfoot, take a seat as your chauffeur drives your little ones to ski school whilst you enjoy that indulgent rarity of taking a cup of coffee back to bed. Some in the party may be renewed with vigour but why rush your favourite days when you know there is a service like that at your garage door?
Fast forward five hours and you have just had one of those days on the mountain that you will remember forever. Those London batteries have been well and truly recharged by another ultimate day in Les Trois Vallées. Only a skier knows that feeling of elation as you glide home after an action packed day covering the pistes of Courchevel and Meribel.
Boots and helmets lie abandoned in the boot room. You emerge from Chalet Verdet’s master suite, one of five opulent bedrooms, adorned in robe and slippers. You walk with the purpose that only someone destined for your favourite après can. You sweep past the living area and beyond onto the large private sun terrace. Walk like these favourite hours are forever. After all, it’s not every week you have a luxurious hot tub with endless views and your nearest and dearest unwinding with you and a bottle of your favourite bubbly.
Chalet Verdet is here to spoil and indulge you. Slippers back on and with an appetite up, it is time to sink back with afternoon tea and be mesmerised by the sitting room’s double height chandelier adorned ceiling. These are the hours of the day where time stands still. The children are in their element in the cosy snug on the second floor. With a corner sofa and enough cushions for a five year old to get lost amongst, this area is their heaven. With a TV, a DVD player, Wii console, books and board games keeping them out of mischief, this is a rare moment to behold and celebrate. A glass of champagne to accompany your peace and quiet downstairs? Oh, well, if you’re offering. It would be rude to refuse.
As the hour turns from après to evening, it’s time to regroup around the stunning glass feature fireplace. It is time to take advantage of Chalet Verdet’s complimentary bar before settling in around the dining table for another memorably delicious five course supper. It is hard to stay focused on today’s skiing achievements with such cleverly crafted plates and great picture windows taking your gaze out to the twinkling village beyond.
Days like these really don’t get much better. With sheer contentment rippling around the dining table, why not wrap up and take that last glass of something out to the terrace. There is something mesmerising about watching the Alpine stars above in the inky sky. With heavy eyes and blissful content, you know it won’t be long before you are reunited with your suite on the first floor. Spread across the width of the back of the chalet, calling it a bedroom is a bit of an understatement. Home to a walk-in wardrobe, your own terrace and a beautiful Italian stone en-suite, for now all you can focus on is sinking into that cloud of a superking bed. As with everything in Chalet Verdet, only the finest materials will do. If your eyes can stay open long enough, perhaps leave the curtains open and watch the night sky stretch out beyond and catch a glimpse of the odd shooting star.
For now though, I think it’s time for us to say goodnight and allow you to rest in euphoric slumber. In Chalet Verdet, you have discovered complete and utter peace.

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. On the chef's day off there are still a great selection of fruit, cereals, yoghurts and pastries but no cooked option.
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 six nights of your stay.
The chalet provides a complimentary bar of beer, wines, sparkling wine, 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.
