You smile a wry smile as you watch them all wait in the bus line-up, the large group waiting around at the lift for their chauffeur to turn up, you feel for them, it's cold and the kids have had a long day. Your one of the lucky ones - you get to stay in one of the rare top end properties in the valley that enjoys a ridiculously prime position - everything is on your doorstep. The ultimate convenience.
Kilco Penthouse couldn’t be better located. Slap bang in the centre of this world renown and thriving resort, you’re close to the shops, bars and restaurants and we think you’ll be frequenting them often. That’s if you can bear to tear yourself away from the confines of this utterly lovely penthouse in the evenings.
A week here will recharge your batteries and give you the taste for more of the same because the accommodation, the resort and the care taken by the dedicated staff will all combine to make you feel special and who doesn’t like to feel cosseted in beautiful surroundings. The interiors of Kilco are certainly beautiful and being here will give you the feel good factor.
You’ve obviously come to ski and you couldn’t be better placed, the piste is a snowballs throw away, the ski lifts a short stroll, so your eagerness to get on the slopes will not be frustrated. The ski schools are close by too, beginners in your party will appreciate this.
Kilco sleeps ten, in five comfortable and cosy bedrooms, so it’s the perfect bolt hole for groups of friends or an extended family. Should you have young children, there’s a high tea for them six nights a week, leaving the adults free to enjoy a superb evening meal prepared by the excellent chef. When you arrive you’ll be instantly made to feel at home with a champagne reception and you’ll be won over immediately by the stunning interiors. This will be your home for the duration and we think you’ll love it.
After a great day on the slopes you might care to indulge in the sauna and the indoor pool, a feature the children will love. Should you arrive by car there’s garage parking. Simply put, Kilco Penthouse is a stylish and well appointed apartment in a location that really is almost impossible to beat.

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 chef's day-off a continental breakfast is provided. 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.
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. 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 house wines and is served on 5 nights leaving you free to explore the local restaurants on two evenings.
The chalet provides house wines, X3 bottles of standard spirits and a selection of soft drinks & juices. There is a Champagne reception on one night of your stay. Wine upgrades are possible - 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.
