Verbier and Méribel are two of the Alps’ most sought-after ski destinations – and for good reason! With ski lifts accessing snow-sure slopes as high as 3,200m, both destinations offer an enticing mix of lengthy ski seasons, incredible terrain and lavish culinary and party scenes. Over the festive period, we welcomed guests from near and far, injecting even more sparkle into their snow-cloaked Christmas & New Year’s celebrations with our world-class service.
The good news? 2024 has only just begun! If you missed out on last year’s ski holiday, why not come and make the most of the current extraordinary snow conditions here in the Alps, which promise a winter playground that will thrill both adventurous skiers and long, lazy lunch-lovers alike.
Are you a low-season adrenaline seeker who wants to shred down untouched slopes? Or one of those counting down the days ‘til the next school holidays, so you can whisk your little ones away to make mountain memories? Let us match you with the ski retreat and personalised service of your wildest dreams – whatever they entail!
After a day of exploration, stay on a catered basis and let your private chef and chalet host ensure that you don’t have to lift a finger. In fact, from the moment you book, you’ll be taken care of by a team of seasoned winter professionals who understand the subtle details that take your ski holiday from exceptional to extraordinary. World-class skiing, unrivalled accommodation and totally tailored luxury service – It’s what we do best.
