Dream Swiss Chalet

One of a kind breath taking mountain views, clean crisp air, waterfalls, rivers, snowing, skiing all day.  Ski right down to the foot of your Chalet without ever taking your skis off.  Then walking downtown for an apres, that's the dream swiss chalet.  

When I think of a dream swiss chalet it's almost always in a mountain setting.  With a log cabin, vaulted ceilings and a large stone fireplace.  

Now add in outdoor hottubs, private chefs, massive 7 suite spaces, wine cellars, workout rooms, world class views and you truly have a dream swiss chalet.  Let's take a look at a few examples of that Dream Chalet in a setting like Vermatt, Switzerland.

Dream Swiss Chalet

Chalet McKinley - Zermatt, Switzerland

Not only is Chalet McKinley (pictured above) at the pinnacle of luxury but also at the pinnacle of fine dining.  Your SkiBoutique PA has already worded with your chef to ensure that the perfect menu is designed for your favorite week, along with tonight's seven course evening meal.  

Fortunately with Chalet McKinley's professional kitchen on the ground floor.  Supper is a seamless affair with a sense of heightened excitement when dinner wondrously appears. 

Chalet Grace - Zermatt, Switzerland


Just about every piece of prime real-estate across the globe has a million dollar view, Grace is no exception.  Floor to ceiling windows on all three levels allow for awe inspired daydreaming. 

This dream swiss chalet was positioned in such a way that if you lounge on the huge comfy sofas in the living area you have a panoramic view and there she is, the Matterhorn, in all her glory, seemingly just for you.  

Put on your favorite music, pour a glass of wine and all you have to do is look out and appreciate it all, it's stunning and you have a front row seat. 

Zermatt Switzerland

The stunningly beautiful village of Zermatt is one of Europe's most popular skiing destinations.  The village is nestled at the head of a valley and surrounded on three sides by mountains.  

The whole town is car-free.  Walking through the village is like stepping back in time with birdsong and chatter of shoppers caroling through the air.  Adding to the tranquil ambience of this delightful resort town is the rush and murmur of the river that spills down through the town from the glacier above.

Perfectly framed mountain vistas in the double height floor to ceiling windows of the living room or the plate glass walls of the luxury spa.  Chalet Nyumba is a beautiful property that has been stylishly conceived and is a perfect blend of traditional chalet with a contemporary aesthetic.   

Worn leather sofas, distressed antique wood finishes and beautiful alpine detailing featuring throughout.  

Chalet Lauenen - Gstaad, Switzerland


The designers fashioned chalet lauenen with a blend of traditional alpine sensibilities with the latest contemporary design.  Rich fabrics, aged and honey toned wooden beams and sumptuous furnishings are evident throughout the property.  Where we'll also find attention to detail in it's finest.

While visiting Lauenen, guests can also take advantage of the nature preserve by idyllic Lake Lauenen with its waterfalls and high moors, the narrow streets in the historic village centre.  

Chalet  Grande Corniche - Les Gets, France


Vast floor to ceiling picture windows in the open plan dining and living area command spectacular views across the valley and up to the king of the Alps, Mont Blanc.  

From the feature central staircase all glass and natural timbers curving attractively as it carves through the 4 floors, to the statement Grand Piano and the antique furniture pieces that subtly compliment the modern design of Chalet Grande Corniche

Chalet  Gentianes - Courchevel, France


Courchevel 1850's Chalet Gentianes with seven lavish bedrooms, spread out across the three upper expansive floors, you can ensure that space comes guaranteed.  However forget that after a long day of skiing you should be made to take the stairs, say goodbye to your private ski instructor for the day and let the elevator carry you down to your Chalet.

Chalet N - Lech, Austria

Chalet N comes complete with seven suites, each bedroom featuring a luxurious living area and dressing room, even those with the highest of standards will be more than satisfied.  

Wind a long skiing day down with a trip to the finest wine cellar in the Alps.  Notable not only for its collection of fine wines but for the experience enhancing interior design.  Alternatively, perhaps a glass of champagne on the terrace's fur draped snowfa would be the ideal location of choice for a canape soiree.
