Ski Chalets really are a home from home in another country, and provide an enjoyable experience designed for people from all over the world. France and Austria are the two most popular ski destinations in Europe, closely followed by Italy, but for the best ski chalets, you are definitely best sticking to Austria or France. The great diversity with these chalets is that they can sleep numbers from 6 to 40, meaning that you could either travel as a family or with a large group of friends.
Chalets are like personal hotels, that are put together to serve your needs. When you arrive you are usually greeted but someone that will take care of you on your stay, usually cooking for you or looking after the washing and what not. In some cases these people are referred to as “Chalet Girls” and not only do they help to look after you on your stay, but have good knowledge of the area and can provide good ski routes. So the ski chalet experience is one where you can enjoy the slopes but be catered for as if you were in the comfort of your own home.
For families or small groups of friends, between 6 and 8 of you could benefit from staying at a beautiful ski chalet in France called Chalet Pia. This chalet is a contemporary styled apartment like appearance and provides cosy and warm close quarters for visitors. There is always a dining and lounge area for each of the chalet apartments. As with most chalet deals, you will be fed breakfast and a 3 course meal most nights as well, this is a perfect place for large families to visit!
For those of you looking for a party adventure with a large group of friends, I bet you though you wouldn’t be able to find a place that could sleep up to 40 of you! Well then you should consider taking a look at the Chalet Mounty in Austria, this resort can take a huge number of visitors, and the best thing is that it is hosted by Crystal Ski enthusiasts, that will cook for you, take you out on ski trips and give recommendations on places to visit, even taking you out to a few of them! This is the jkind of place to take a group of friends that are looking to have a wild time, and enjoy a mass social event where you can all enjoy each others company and meet new friends!
These are just two examples of top quality chalets in Europe, there are many more, but these really stand out for two distinct reasons, they both cater for specific niche markets, one for families and one for large groups!
