You only stepped off your luxury summer yacht at the weekend. The rabble (ahem, the darling children) have been delivered back to school, you give yourself credit for how smart they look for the first day of term. You’re back home, coffee in hand, feeling empty. The buzz and comforting noise that comes with all of the family being on summer vacation seems a distant memory. Time for action.
The snow forecast conveniently coincides with your eldest’s 18th at the start of the New Year and your husband’s 50th. Any excuse for a celebration and to get everyone back together! Chalet Orsini.
This chalet is proud of its position in one of the world’s most exclusive resorts. Even Auntie, your most discerning guest, will admire Orsini’s luxury. You may have your own 24-hour chauffeur service but will that be necessary? Find your way between the impressive art collection and alpine artifacts, to your very own private spa. Complete with hamman, hot tub, relaxation area and treatment room… don’t forgot you’re here to ski as well! If the legs are feeling like they’re on holiday too, feel free to use your private lift that runs between the spa, the entertaining areas and bedrooms. Use your upmost willpower to tear yourself away from the open fire and to die-for-views from your master suite balcony. You have this year’s party of all parties to host! After all, you’re only 18 and 50 once.
You’re dressed to impress and don’t you look fabulous! Cue your catwalk.. oh, sorry, the large hand built timber stairs, down to your vaulted expansive entertainment space. Let’s start with canapés and a glass of bubbly around the crackle of the large open fireplace, regaling stories of today’s escapades on the slopes. All adventures possible, courtesy of the short drive provided by your chauffeur to and from the Mayenzet and Savoleyeres lift stations.
You never notice your glass nearing empty, the discrete staff have everything under control. Right through to the selection of the finest of wines carefully chosen to compliment your four course evening banquet.
Maybe for my 50th we could push the boat out and book the helicopter transfer? Word will have spread by then of the week that was. The unparalleled views from Orsini to the village below and the Mont Blanc massif, some of the best lift-served off piste in the Alps and legendary après. To keep up with demand of RSVPs, we’ll likely have to book Orsini with neighbouring Mon Izba.
Until next time Verbier.

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? Full breakfast is served every morning. 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.
The chalet provides beer, house wines, a drinks tray of 3 bottles of house spirits and mixers. Champagne is served with canapés on 6 nights of your stay.
Children & dietary requirements
The chalet is happy to cater for specific dietary requirements, and will serve an earlier high tea for children (on 6 nights). 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.
