Luxury Family Villas & Ski Chalets
Winter or summer, if you're looking for a home away from home (with lots of added bells and whistles!), check out our family friendly villas and chalets.
Whether coastal or inland, our villas are all located in stunning areas for exploring the local area, although with private playgrounds and pools, and tennis courts and games rooms, you may have a fight on your hands convincing the children to venture out of the grounds. Whilst villas are generally rented on a villa-only basis, we are able to offer a hosted upgrade package, and have access to heaps of fabulous added extras, from in-villa cookery classes to yacht hire.
Location, location, location -and more besides! Our ski chalets are not only situated in the best places for the slopes, but also come jam-packed with family après ski options -from indoor pools and games rooms to in-house cinemas and soft play areas (yes really!). Speak to our chalet team about all the added extras we can provide -from in-house chefs and childcare to ski school and chauffeur bookings.
