Hidden away luxury chalets
Which hidden away luxury chalets are perfect for a ski retreat? For many it's all about seeing and being seen. These clients head for resorts such as Val d’Isere, Courchevel, Verbier and Zermatt where the party scene on the sun decks is all important.

Hidden away luxury chalets in Austria
There are lots of small, tucked out of the way ski resorts in Austria with lots of charm and atmosphere. However, outside of St Anton very few of these resorts offer catered chalet accommodation. Maria Alm is one exception and a fantastic hidden away luxury chalet - Chalet Panorama This is situated just a short drive away from the resort centre and the main lift station. The ski area, very much suited to intermediate skiers, is actually quite large for a little known resort and links several villages together in a ski domain that stretches some 14km from one end to the other.
Hidden away luxury chalets in Switzerland
We already feature the Chalet Charr in St Luc below. This is in the delightful Val d'Anniviers valley which delivers alpine charm and tradition by the bucket load. However, there are lots of amazing chalets in Switzerland that are real hidden treasures. The Tiger's Nest Lodge in Les Collons has been finished to very high standards and makes maximum use of the sparkling alpine sunshine - the chalet is beautifully decorated in contemporary pastel and pale colours that compliment the surroundings. Chalet Etsesian in Gstaad is another beautifully finished luxury alpine home, more classically presented but none the less desirable for that. Chalet L'Arole in Villars effortlessly combines classic old-style chalet decor with modern bathrooms and luxuries. With a great outdoor swimming pool, cedar hot tub, hammam and driver service there is not much that this chalet does not deliver on.
