Overview

A week staying with the royals

If you are partial to sheer opulence and grandeur then Chalet Etesian should be on your wish list. Probably the most regal chalet in our collection, this extraordinarily grand property nestles in the very heart of Gstaad, a short stroll from the village centre. More akin to a Royal home than a luxury ski chalet, this property is very special, very unique and seriously exclusive. 

This palace like chalet can accommodate a total of 14 adults and 2 children. The chalets cavernous interiors are a treasure trove of antiques, art and beautiful individual pieces of furniture. The craftsmanship of the carpentry work in the interiors is akin to a work of art in itself, quite exquisite. Chalet Etesian is spread out over 5 floors and has two very distinct areas. The floors are accessed by stairs or a lift.

The more modern space houses the new master bedroom, the spa, cinema room and a huge entertainment room reminiscent of a night club. The original chalet is more refined and houses 7 en-suite bedrooms and the main living and dining rooms. The top floor is given over to a stunning bedroom, its bathroom and private living spaces - surely the living quarters of the king of the castle.

Additional to the above Chalet Etesian also features an entertainment room, ski room and a beautiful spa area with Jacuzzi and hammam. There are also a couple of pieces of fitness equipment located in the spa.

This property is private viewing only. It is an intensely private and revered luxury ski chalet that is spectacular in every sense of the word. This chalet is without doubt one of the most premium properties in the Alps and it does have a price tag to match. We believe it more than justifies it's price bracket though, and there is no other chalet of its kind in the region. The floor space in itself is seriously impressive, all 950 square meters of it! Feel like royalty for a week in this stunning chalet, you will never want to leave.

Reviews

FROM THE PRESS

"Set in private gardens in the heart of Gstaad, Chalet Etesian is as palatial as they come. Spread across five floors, the original building is all intricately carved wood, frescoed ceilings, wooden baths, fur throws and expensive oils and antiques. Step into the newer section, however, for a change of pace: here you’ll find a state-of-the-art spa, cinema, an entertainment room with a nightclub-worthy sound system, wine cellar and sprawling master bedroom."

WHAT WE THINK

The most opulent chalet in our collection. Some like it contemporary, some like it traditional - if you're the type of person that likes it above and beyond then a week at Chalet Etesian might be just the tonic.

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? 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 

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. 

 

Let the good times flow 

The chalet provides an open bar of beer, wines, 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.
