Breakfast, the most important meal of the day. Essential for energising before a long day on the slopes, we are seeing more and more luxury bed and breakfast ski chalets coming onto the rental market due to the demand from those seeking more flexibility in their ski holiday. The perfect option for guests wanting a complete resort experience, your luxury bed and breakfast ski holiday will consist of relaxed mornings prior to the slopes, followed by famous apres ski or visits to exclusive and renowned restaurants post-ski! It is clear to see why bed and breakfast chalets have risen in demand over the past few years…
In this blog, we introduce you to the benefits this service can have over luxury catered chalet services and self catered chalet options, highlighting the top luxury bed and breakfast ski chalets in Val d’Isere…
Why Choose a Luxury Bed and Breakfast Ski Chalet?
At Ski In Luxury, our priority is to find the dream luxury ski chalet suited to your needs and desires. If you’re looking to book your first luxury ski holiday to the Alps, this can often be very daunting with the amount of decision-making that has to be made! Here, we provide you with some of the benefits of a bed and breakfast chalet, to make your job slightly easier…
Holiday on your own time!
Let us set the scene…you’re midway through apres ski, dancing on the tables at La Folie Douce and a fellow group member is at the bar ordering the next round of shots – life is good! However, you check your watch and realise you’re supposed to be back at your chalet in 15 minutes for your evening meal! No one wants to have their fun interrupted, especially when it’s during a spontaneous event… Fortunately, the flexibility of a luxury bed and breakfast ski holiday allows you to holiday by your own timings – whether you fancy staying out longer for apres ski or eating out on one of Val d’Isere’s top slope side restaurants.
Let your holiday be, and evolve into, the exact way you imagined it! There are no set meal times so your evening’s activities are based completely on your own timeline. This can often be especially beneficial for those extended family ski holidays, where a range of ages need to be catered for at differing dining times!
A Foodie’s Dream!
Skiing and mouth-watering food goes hand-in-hand, or should we say hand-to-mouth?! We know everyone at Ski In Luxury believes so anyway! By choosing a luxury bed and breakfast chalet service, you can take advantage of sampling the delectable, local cuisine served by an endless number of in-resort bars and on-slope restaurants. Featuring exclusive bed and breakfast chalets will allow you to experience crème de la crème of gourmet specialities, to satisfy your ski appetites on your next holiday…
Alternatively, a luxury B&B ski holiday presents the opportunity for any avid cooks to test out their culinary skills in a range of modern, fully equipped chalet kitchens. Rivalling some of the finest restaurants in the Alps, each kitchen will have all the appliances you could desire and need to lovingly prepare your own gourmet meals. In the meantime, the rest of the group can utilise the exceptional wellness facilities available in our luxury chalets with bed and breakfast service!
It’s your holiday!
Despite the friendly nature of the chalet teams operating in all the luxury catered ski chalets we offer across our portfolio, a bed and breakfast service enables you to have a true home-from-home experience. Preparations for your breakfast service will often be underway whilst you are still snoozing in your sumptuous beds, and as such means you will not even encounter the hard-working chalet staff setting out your morning refreshments on the table. Because of this, it will feel like no ‘strangers’ are interfering on your luxury ski holiday, especially important for those special family occasions.
More cost-effective luxury option…
We understand how the price of a luxury ski holiday can unknowingly increase…first the price of a chalet and the travel there, and that’s even before considering the price of ski hire, lift passes etc. We know it can all add up, and as a result, a luxury bed and breakfast chalet can often propose a more cost-effective way to experience all the benefits of a luxury ski resort.
Have the best of both worlds!
Tailored to your holiday needs, bed and breakfast chalets don’t have to miss out on the luxury chalet catering packages offered by operators. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, there have been many advancements in chalet catering and contactless chalet catering in the Alps, to ensure ski holidays are conducted in the safest way possible. As a result, luxury ski chalets on a bed and breakfast basis can now be combined with food delivery/catering services, such as Huski mountain food delivery to give you the best of both worlds!
As well as this, many services that are included as standard in luxury catered chalets, can often be built onto a bed and breakfast service for an additional supplement. Services, such as in-resort driver’s service, massage treatments and ski hire equipment, can all be added during your pre-concierge service, ensuring your luxury ski holiday is tailored to your needs.
If a luxury bed and breakfast chalet service doesn’t match your group’s criteria, then don’t worry! To find out which luxury chalet service could be most suited to your group, it may be worth reading our ‘Service Levels on your Luxury Ski Chalet Holiday to the Alps’ blog to narrow down your options…
