Staying in a cosy chalet can make all the difference on ski holidays.
After all, after a busy day on the slopes – and quick stop for the après-ski – there’s nothing like heading back home to a snug wooden lodge and warming up by a roaring fireplace, wrapped up in a thick blanket and looking out over the snowy landscapes.
The best part is that you don’t need to break the bank for a pretty incredible stay.
In fact, there are some properties boasting epic views, private pools and spas, central locations and everything you need for the picture-perfect chalet stay – and you can find prices starting from £24pp a night.
