The French Alps is hands down one of the best alpine destinations. Being there and just taking in the snowy French mountains are enough to take your breath away.
But if you are looking for the most unforgettable experience, then you should go the extra mile and book you and your family in any of the top 3 most luxurious ski resorts you will find there.
Hotel de Charme Les Airelles
The Hotel de Charme Les Airelles, which is nestled snugly in the French Alps, allows you to ski in and out of the resort whenever you want. The hotel also gives you exclusive access to Les Trois Vallees, which is one of the largest ski areas in the world. If you intend to spend a lot of time on the slopes, this is the perfect luxury resort for you. Complete with a dedicated staff, a ski shop that allows complete equipment rental, and a fully decked bar of exquisite liquors and spirits, the ski resort offers one of the best French Alps experience.
The hotel has 37 rooms and 14 suites, and 1 penthouse, which even comes with a personal manservant. This means the guest list is quite limited, which means the staff will be ready to wait on each guest hand and foot. The waiting Ski Valet will also relieve you of your skis upon entering the resort. And when you need some time away from the cold, just go ahead and snuggle up in front of the crackling fireplace at the lobby. If that doesn’t do the trick, then the Les Airelles Spa surely will.
For food, you have three options. First, there’s lunch and dinner at the terrace of La Table du Jardin Alpin, which can be accessed from the slopes. Second, there’s the in-house Pierre Gagnair pour Les Airelles, named after the hotel’s notable chef. And third, there’s the Le Coin Savoyard, which serves local cuisine and has a wonderful open wood fire.
Domaine Du Mont D’Arbois
This is a five-suite exclusive luxury chalet dating back to the 1920. It is situated in the French Alps sandwiched between Switzerland and Italy, and lies at 3,600 feet above sea level.
Aside from the slopes that beckon all around it, Domaine Du Mont D’Arbois also has a golf course, an 18-hole masterpiece that was commissioned by golf enthusiast Baron Edmond de Rothschild. The golf course is perched on a plateau, but has an overlooking view of the quaint Savoyard village of Megeve.
The hotel also has an in-house spa offering many innovative treatments as well as an indoor/outdoor pool. There is also a whole team of expert therapists who are trained in the unique Crystal body therapy.
This is a great place to visit if you are not that much into skiing but would appreciate some R&R in the French Alps.
The Retreat Luxury Chalet in Morzine
Morzine in the Portes du Soleil region of the French Alps is one of the most picturesque places there. It is also easy to find as its location is conveniently accessible from the Geneva Airport; all it takes are a car hire and a few minutes of driving. Morzine is a popular destination in the Alps. And one of the best luxury chalets there is The Retreat.
Originally a 19th century Savoyard farmhouse, The Retreat has been lovingly restored and now offers a rare combination of rustic surroundings and modern facilities right in the middle of the Alps. Since it is located in the rural area of Morzine, The Retreat is highly recommended for luxury guests looking for some peace and quiet. It is also an ideal place for families.
With a balcony, a garden, a cozy living area complete with a warm fireplace, an in-house bar, and traditionally exquisite bedrooms, The Retreat is a great destination for summer mountain biking holidays and winter ski holidays.
