Luxury Catered Chalets – Enjoy A Ski Holiday In Style!

A ski holiday can be a fantastic experience, but we all have memories of low budget ski vacations, where the accommodations left much to be desired as far as amenities and comfort went. If you’d like to make your next trip to the snow the holiday of a lifetime, try renting a luxury catered ski chalet. Instead of sharing facilities, upmarket chalets offer en-suited rooms, sumptuous bedding including duck-down duvets, fluffy towels, exclusive toiletries, DVD and CD players, tel...

A ski holiday can be a fantastic experience, but we all have memories of low budget ski vacations, where the accommodations left much to be desired as far as amenities and comfort went. If you’d like to make your next trip to the snow the holiday of a lifetime, try renting a luxury catered ski chalet. Instead of sharing facilities, upmarket chalets offer en-suited rooms, sumptuous bedding including duck-down duvets, fluffy towels, exclusive toiletries, DVD and CD players, telephone and fax facilities, and broadband wireless internet. This all adds up to a ski holiday in style.

Resorts and chalets range from charming, picture-book alpine chalets to ultra-modern apartments with the latest media technology built in. The best chalets have a complimentary bar and ambiance is provided by roaring log fires. Your weekly tariff often includes delicious and hearty breakfasts that set you up for the day’s skiing, afternoon teas with fresh, homemade cakes and biscuits, and four-course gourmet dinners, prepared by a chef. You can round off the meal with a glass of Pinot and dessert. Dining options range from delicious home cooking to the fine haute cuisine, and all diets are catered for.

A well-stocked library of books and popular board games keep you entertained in the evenings. And separate TV rooms with satellite, video and DVD players and a stock of films are further entertainment alternatives. There are generally music systems that cater for most tastes and which connect to Mp3 players and dedicated internet computers, plus ethernet, WIFI and Bluetooth access for your own laptop.

An in-chalet boot and ski fitting service makes daily action on the slopes more comfortable, and the best luxury chalets have a ski and boot room, with a heated boot warmer. Weekly rates starting from around 850 Euros, although lift passes, ski rental and lessons are all extras that you should budget for.

The ski resort of Meribel, in the French Alps, is world renown for the quality of its chalet accommodation. Some of the more exceptional luxury self-catered chalets in Méribel include: Chalet Rousillon, a traditional, alpine-style chalet with great character and warmth, just five minutes’ walk from the piste. In the private Dou du Pont enclave, Chalet Chopine, with great views, has an outdoor hot tub that is perfect for après ski relaxation.

At Chalet Lamato, a five-star chalet in Méribel Village, it is usually possible to ski back to the chalet door, while the luxurious Chalet Kouneli has superb views and is just a 10-minute walk to and from the pistes. The enormous sitting room is beautifully furnished with antiques and all rooms have views. The Jacuzzi spa and sauna room is perfect at the end of a skiing day.

Whichever resort you choose for your ski holiday, book a luxury catered ski chalet and enjoy great service, sumptuous accommodation and fine cuisine to top off each memorable day.

Vacation time and the kids have decided they want to go skiing this year. I know what you are thinking, expensive. Well it doesn't have to be. There are a variety of things you can do to save money. Many resorts cater to families and offer attractive deals in an attempt to get your business. With all the information available deciding on a resort is easier than ever.

The first place to look when planning a ski holiday is the internet. Almost every ski area will have a website. First of all, decide what area you would like to go. Do you prefer the cruising runs of the east or the high peaks and open bowls you find out west? Once you have decided this you can start to look for facilities the resorts in you preferred area offer. If you have any beginners going on the vacation with you then a ski school is one feature you should give high priority to. Your whole family will enjoy themselves more this way.

The type of runs the ski resort you choose is also important. If the members of your family are mixed in skiing ability then the resort should have a variety of terrain as well. This way the beginners can ski the green runs while the more advances skiers can enjoy more challenging terrain. Any snowboarders in the group will probably enjoy a terrain park. Many resorts also offer other winter activities like sleigh rides and ice skating. All of these can be a fine accent to your holiday.

Good lodging is equally important as good skiing since you will be spending 1/3 of your vacation in the hotel or condo. Having a kitchen unit is going to allow you to save a bundle on meals. I know, you would rather not spend time on your vacation cooking and doing dishes. However the cost to eat at many ski resorts is going to cost over $100 a day for a family of four. Also try and find accommodations with a separate bedroom, at least for you and your spouse or partner. Nothing wrong with some privacy while on holidays.

Once you narrow your search to 2 or 3 resorts then you can start to look for reviews from other skiers. There are many sites and forums where users can submit their experiences while at these resorts. This is a great resource that provides an unbiased view of that resort. It can also help you decide completely where you want to go.

Taking the time with your family to discover their wishes for your next vacation can allow you to plan ahead so that everyone truly enjoys their holiday.

 

New Cash For 2008 Andorra Ski Holidays

Austria, Switzerland and Andorra were among the European ski countries last year who saw a decline in ski holiday visitors, and Andorra has been investing in her facilities to try and tempt the skiiers she lost back for the 2008 season.

Austria, Switzerland and Andorra were among the European ski countries last year who saw a decline in ski holiday visitors, and Andorra has been investing in her facilities to try and tempt the skiiers she lost back for the 2008 season.

In the past Andorra has grown in stature from a destination offering cheap ski holidays to one that can compete with the best that Europe has to offer, with a growing number of ski holidays being taken in the country over the last decade to the point where it was attracting some ten million tourists a year.

But unexpectedly the rise in visitors to Andorra came to a screeching halt for the 2006/7 ski season, and the ski slopes closed two weeks earlier than anticipated due to a lack of snow that saw many other resorts in Europe, especially in countries with low lying slopes like Austria, badly affected by the lack of natural snow.

The Andorra economy is unusually reliant on the ski holidays industry, the other main activity being the financial and banking industry due to her tax haven status, and the weather in Andorra refused to play her part last year. Some estimates suggest takings for supermarkets, petrol stations, department stores and supermarkets were down some 40 per cent compared to 2006 in the main ski holiday areas.

The good news for the Andorra ski holidays industry as it hopes for an improved 2008 holidays season is that the snow - notably absent last year - started to fall in November, and long range weather forecasts suggest that January through to April could see enough snow to give Andorra skiers good snow depth, and little if any need for snow cannons to make up any shortfall.

But the tourist authorities are determined not to be caught out again, and continue with the progress made in the last twenty years that has seen Andorra rise impressively from a cheap ski holiday destination to one that caters for the middle and upmarket price range with UK ski holiday specialist companies like Crystal Ski offering a full range of holidays in Andorra.

Private money as well as finance from the banks in Andorra have helped to upgrade Soldeu, a main Andorra ski holiday resort, to a high class status with new hotels and upgrades for existing ones.

Andorra Weather

In total it is estimated that nearly 200 million Euros has been invested in Andorra's on-mountain ski facilities, and the figure rises significantly when off-mountain spending is taken into account, such as the new hotels in Andorra, notably in the top ski areas of Soldeu and Arinsal.

The ski areas of Andorra have been praised by many in the industry for having the capability of producing enough man made snow to cover over 40 per cent of the ski domain, but investment has continued to further this already high amount by having for the 2008 ski holiday season over a thousand snow cannons in place - although it is hoped they don't have to be used much.

'The aim of the Andorra tourist authorities', comment local travel guide YourAndorra.com, 'is to ensure that when skiiers choose Andorra the resorts will do everything they can to make their holiday a memorable one for all the right reasons - and to see them again in future years as they decide Andorra is a good skiing holiday destination.'

The upgrading of facilities and road infrastructure has also increased interest from those looking for a European tax haven and considering taking Andorra residency.

Andorra is one of the most sought after tax havens in Europe with no income tax for her residents, and is second in popularity only to Monaco, but enjoys the same tax benefits.

One of the big differences between the two is the cost of a property. Real estate in Monaco is among the highest in the world with a studio often costing over a million Euros, while Andorra real estate is considerably less with good two bedroom two bathroom apartments for sale from around 300,000 Euros.

To show the skiing fraternity that Andorra is capable of meeting their expectations for the 2008 holiday season, and importantly to meet the expectations of ski companies like Thomson ski, Andorra will have 450 ski instructors over seven different resorts, and to maintain her family friendly atmosphere four creches.

All in all, Andorra will be able to compete as one of Europe's top skiing destinations this year.
