On the long and sometimes tiring (always exciting) journey to find your dream ski holiday, you have explored every twist and turn in the path. From hotel to apartment and lodge, following every lead with grit and determination you finally reach your personal summit at Chalet Kilimanjaro. And the view is pretty special.
Sitting piste side in Val D’Isère Chalet Kilimanjaro stands out above all others as the epitome of the perfect luxury Alpine ski chalet. She is striking, angular; dramatic lighting illuminates her pitched rooves and she twinkles at you from afar as you make your final ascent along the snow covered mountain road.
Having made this journey, nay pilgrimage, you feel worthy of a celebratory drink; a glass of champagne to toast the start of an experience you will surely treasure for a lifetime. Meanwhile your Sherpa, I mean, chalet host, takes care of the luggage secreting it in your rooms as you sit back by the roaring log fire and soak up the jaw dropping views from the top.
The interiors are open plan with a feeling of great space created by the double height vaulted ceilings and vast picture windows. Yet the ambiance is cosy and intimate courtesy of huge sofas to sink into, with lavish fur throws and piles of cushions. The fireplace too exudes homely warmth; unusually positioned in the corner of the room it draws your eye, framed by the colossal windows either side ensuring that not a spec of that special view is wasted.
The bedrooms too are intimate, and none more special than the master, Olympus. As you might expect this sits on the top floor, spacious and reached by its own private staircase this bedroom under the eaves has clever windows cut into the gable flooding the space with light, acting as your own private peephole out onto each day’s snow conditions from the luxury of your king-size bed. The en-suite also boasts a bath with a view courtesy of those modern glass gables, which sit in wonderful juxtaposition to the 200-year-old reclaimed wooden beams.
The chalet both exterior and interior is more than matched in style and sophistication by the wonderful team of staff, there to wait on you and make this your own, totally bespoke experience. From a welcome cup of tea brought to you in bed each morning, to champagne served in the hot tub and with canapés before the fire. You need not lift a finger now you’ve arrived; your efficient chalet manager will ensure your ski equipment is prepared each morning, boots warmed, ski guide primed to meet you at the chalet, and lunch booked at the best mountain restaurants.
From your privileged position up at Chalet Kilimanjaro you are just meters from the slopes, no time wasted to reach them and no more lengthy hikes in those ski boots. In any case should you perhaps wish to start from La Daille and ski Tignes for the day your chauffeur is on hand to take you where you wish across the resort, in style and comfort. Handy too if you plan on a little retail therapy after skiing one day.
Dinner each night is a real treat thanks to the talents of your own gourmet chef who will create menus especially for you, to your own preferred style and taste. Later in the evening, should you feel a spring in your step, re-energised from your time in the hot tub perhaps, and that rejuvenating sports massage, VIP tables at the most glamorous bars in Val D’Isère will be booked in your name. Your chauffeur on hand once more to drive you there – and return you safely home too.
This is a proper escape from the everyday, a truly stylish and luxurious ski holiday and adventure in the Alps not to be forgotten.

If you want the best of the best in the Alps.... then go to Chardon Mountain Lodges! I have now stayed in all of the chalets... everyone are superb! The staff, the facilities.. the food - WOW! If you want the 'Best of the Best' then you can only come here! I've been going to the Alps for 30 years and nowhere comes close in comparison!!
I don't care if you travel 1st class around the world ALL the time. You will be totally awe inspired by the whole exquisite experience whilst it still has a relaxed homely atmosphere. We stayed at Killamanjaro chalet with its hot tub and sauna bathed in sun looking over Val d'Isere Olympic run. For Sarah and her team nothing was too much trouble. Don't go if you wish to loose weight - Jose the chef should be awarded 3 Michelin stars. The down side - eventually you have to go home.

No need to rush out of bed - tea or coffer will be brought to your room. Then to breakfast - 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 served on 6 nights giving you one night to explore and experience the wonderful local restaurants.
The chalet provides an open bar of beer, carefully selected house wines, 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.
