What is an All inclusive ski chalet holiday?
More fun than a hotel, easier than self-catering and better value than both, a chalet offers all the advantages of holidaying at your own home but without any of the housework. Essentially it should be a relaxed informal and enjoyable skiing or boarding holiday, with our chalet staff keeping the chalet clean and tidy every day, making beds, all the shopping, providing excellent food and creating a convivial atmosphere in which you can enjoy all the benefits of being in some of the top ski resorts in the world.

We can assure you that you do not have to worry about it in any way. We have chalet staff who work for our organization for many years and they know very well how to behave towards the guest.
