The property is fully ski-in, ski-out and leads directly onto Courchevel’s legendary winter playground and guests can drink in wonderful views from the property’s balconies and terraces. Meanwhile, the spa extends over a whole floor: home not just to the usual sauna and steam room but also a swimming pool, fitness room, beauty salon and a massage room among other five-star facilities. There are plenty more fabulous things to discover in Le Petit Palais – it extends over 6 floors and occupies 1500 sqm floor space.

Located in Lech, an Austrian resort prized for its long season and snow-sure conditions, the Aurelio Chalet is one of the fabulous luxury Winter destinations in the Alps. Available to rent on an exclusive basis or as separate apartments, the villa can sleep 16 people in unmatchable comfort and style. Separated from the main hotel building, the chalet facilities include a private spa and the services of a private chef and butler. The accommodation is beautifully thought out: contemporary elegance is the name of the game, but respect is paid to alpine heritage through the use of warm natural materials. The result is relaxing surroundings that are crisp, fresh and inviting. Location is everything with this chalet, with Lech’s charming town centre and the Schlegelkopf ski lift just metres away.
