Millionaires ski chalet holiday

11th September 2015

‘Well heeled’ clients and Lottery winners looking for the finest ski chalet to stay in with first class service should consider Val d’Isere and the Chalet Marco Polo for their next ski trip.

The French ski resort of Val d’Isere is one of the top ski resorts anywhere in the world, a vast ski area connected to Tignes covering some 300km of pristine pistes and kilometre after kilometre of wonderful off piste skiing routes in valleys where nobody skis.  The Marco Polo is, quite simply one of the finest homes to rent anywhere.

We asked our Luxury travel consultant Mal Sargent to put together a Luxurious ski holiday for an imaginary Lottery winner and 10 close friends, a kind of dream brief for Mal.

Here’s what Mal came up with!

I’ve had a few clients book the Chalet Marco Polo in Val d’Isere over the past couple of winters, so based on their feedback and the fact that this chalet has won the best Luxury ski chalet in the Snow awards for the past couple of years gives me tremendous confidence to put this chalet forward to our lucky Lottery winner to consider.

Inside Chalet Marco Polo

The chalet is massive, set over 1000 Square meters internally!  To put that in perspective, the average sized 4 bedroom house in the UK is only 96.8 m2, so it’s 10 times the size, that’s pretty big for 10 adults.

Naturally the chalet Marco Polo has everything a good chalet should, its ski in ski out, has a hot tub, all the bedrooms have private bathrooms. However Millionaires and lottery winners always want a little more, so the chalet has an indoor swimming pool, let me change that to “one hell of a swimming pool’’ and a steam Hamman.

Now I can never understand why you would need a gym on a skiing holiday, isn’t skiing exercise enough? But chalet Marco Polo has one anyway, in fact the high tech gym has two of everything so you can workout in pairs.

The in house spa manager is available is available for up to 2 hours a day for complementary treatments, there are three treatment/ massage rooms.

Not many ski chalets can boast a wine cellar, even fewer have a cheese cellar too, chalet Marco Polo has both.
