Our little black book of enchanting places



Posted in SKI By Maggie O'Sullivan

This is Bighorn, an eight-bedroom chalet with outdoor hot tub, exercise pool and its own private helipad. It’s located in the Canadian resort of Revelstoke and, according to the World Ski Awards, which took place in Kitzbühel last week, it’s the best chalet in the world. A snip at just over £100,000 a week, to include a chef, a full complement of staff, and heli-skiing. Further information, Bighorn Revelstoke

Not planning to ski in Canada this season? Perhaps we can tempt you with one of the award-winning chalets in Europe…

The Best Chalet in France

Consensio’s Marco Polo chalet, in Val d’Isère, won the award for the second consecutive year. The six-bedroom chalet sleeps 12 adults and 4 children and boasts an indoor hot tub and swimming pool, wine cellar, vaulted cinema room, gym (two of everything so you can work out in pairs), spa and wellness facility, oh and an art collection for when you’re tired of looking at all that snow. Cost is from £29,900 per week. Further information, Marco Polo

The Best Chalet in Austria

Five-bedroom Chalet 1597 is located in the Stubenbach area of Lech. The original building dates from – you’ve guessed it – 1597 and the chalet has a traditional stone cave and wine cellar. Other standout features include a spa area and cinema. It costs from £33,000 a week. Further information, Chalet 1597

The Best Chalet in Switzerland

Bella Coola, in Verbier, sleeps 11 in magnificent chalet-chic style. The standout feature here, though, is its spa complex where the indoor pool has mountain views in all directions. There’s also a large hamman and spacious bar area. Cost is from around CHF45,000 (£29,800) per week. Further information, Bella Coola

The Best Chalet in Italy

San Lorenzo, in the Italian Dolomites, is a former hunting lodge dating from the 16th century. It sleeps 10, has an outdoor relaxation area with a hot tub, an indoor Finnish sauna and Turkish bath, and a cellar boasting more than 1,500 bottles of the finest Alto Adige wines. Cost is from €2,900 (£2,300) per day. Further information, San Lorenzo 

The Best Chalet in Finland

Another winner from last year, Rukan Salonki is a collection of 13 deadwood chalets set in the wilderness by Lake Salonkijärvi. The real luxury on offer here is space and privacy. We like the look of this one – Rukan Salonki 13 – which has six bedrooms and costs around £800 per person, per day in March. Further information, Rukan Saloniki
