This winter treat yourself and your loved ones to an exclusive stay in a Swiss chalet or deluxe hotel, with activities to impress all the family from Michelin-starred dining under the winter sky to a winter cruise on Lake Geneva.

Chalet Luxury

This ski season why not choose a luxury chalet rental, such as the Chalet Fleur des Neiges, from Leo Trippi. Located in the heart of Villars, with exceptional views of the Dents du Midi, Fleur des Neiges offers easy access to local shops and restaurants and breath-taking mountain views.

Inside you’ll find an open plan living area leading to an apex with a stunning 17th century stone fireplace; a bespoke kitchen designed with stone workshops and a large island; a cinema room seating 13 people; a large sauna with an integrated sound system; and a temperature-controlled wine cellar.

Prices range from CHF 16,000 – CHF 45,000 per week for self-catering. The chalet features 7 bedrooms sleeping up to 14 guests.

In St Moritz, Chesa el Toula is a six-bedroom chalet offering 900m2 of living space and boasting one of the finest wellness areas in St Moritz, including its own swimming pool. The chalet was recently renovated and includes the finest Italian stones, marbles, designer furnishings and one-off pieces from around the world. To top it all, it’s located just a two-minute drive from the nearest ski lift. The chalet is available fully serviced or self-catered.

Michelin-star dining

New for the 2020 ski season, Leo Trippi has partnered with KSH Management to offer a new experience combining Michelin star dining with exhilarating high-altitude skiing. Imagine, for example, being whisked by helicopter up to a mountain top to watch sunrise, while Phil Howard creates an indulgent breakfast to power your run back down through untouched snow. Or, spend a day skiing to a remote location, where Leo Trippi’s team will have created a magical setting, complete with ice sculptures, ice-carved tables and chairs, with an abundance of faux-fur throws to ward off the chill. Here, a sumptuous dinner prepared by the chef will be enjoyed under the darkening winter skies, before you embark on an adventurous night ski back down to your chalet.

Leo Trippi and KSH Management offer the ‘Chefs at New Heights’ experience from £15,000 in addition to the chalet hire cost.

Bucket list journey through Switzerland

The Bürgenstock Selection, Switzerland’s largest deluxe hotel group, has launched its second edition of its signature Swiss Escape experience to take guests on a bucket list journey across Bern, Lausanne and Lucerne.

With savings of up to 25 per cent, the multi-night offer is available to guests visiting at least two of the following Bürgenstock properties: Hotel Schweizerhof Bern & Spa, the Royal Savoy Hotel & Spa Lausanne and the Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne. There is a range of activities on offer including a private hot air balloon flight in Château-d’Oex, a luxurious winter cruise on Lake Geneva, or a walk through the wooden Chapel Bridge in Lucerne that dates back to 1333 to admire its medieval Water Tower.
