Chalet Cristal is a traditional style chalet with a modern and comfortable interior, perfect for groups wanting their own special catered ski lodge or individuals looking for convivial chalet-style accommodation in a stylish property in St Anton.
It is just 5 minutes’ walk to the Rendlbahn and then 2 more minutes to the Galzig gondola and the lovely pedestrian heart of St Anton.
The chalet is situated on a slope which is downhill to the lifts and uphill back so we have arranged with our ski and board hire partner that all pre-booked skis and boots can be left at the shop just next to the Galzigbahn leaving you free to return to the chalet or stop at one of St Anton’s renowned après ski venues in the centre of the resort.
The chalet inside is classic by design with uncluttered with wooden walls giving a feeling of space and calm. There is a sauna on the ground floor with a small relaxation area for 2 people to rest afterwards.
The bedrooms all have en suite shower or bath/wc and room 7 has room for a put-up bed for a child (for bookings taking sole occupancy of the chalet).
Meals are served in the dining room which leads on to the lounge area which has large comfy sofas and cushions and TV/DVD player.
The chalet service includes a daily breakfast, afternoon tea and 3 course evening meals with wine. A continental breakfast is served daily with cooked options on 6 days. Afternoon tea and evening meals are for 6 days leaving you one evening midweek to sample a local restaurant in the town.
Chalet Cristal is an excellent choice for exploring the Arlberg ski area, one of the best ski areas in the world.

A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so they provide both a hot option, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself.

The traditional ‘welcome home’ after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet, ready for your return, every day except on the staff’s day off. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready.

A special festive menu will also be served on New Year’s Eve, alongside the added bonus that many resorts put on fantastic firework displays. A glass of fizz, whilst watching fireworks over the snow-capped peaks of the Alps.. what better way to bring in the New Year!
Their Quality Wines
They are very proud of their wine selection for their chalets, which combines crisp and fruity whites with medium to full-bodied reds, for a variety of palates. They select their wines in conjunction with their good friends Nicolas and Véronique – the third generation in the Perret family’s fine wine business based in the Savoie. Nicolas is a qualified wine expert, having trained at the prestigious Burgundy Wine University in Beaune. Each season in October, Nicolas & Véronique bring over a new selection for us to sample (someone has to do it!) and together they choose their wines for the coming season, based on their menus and their pure enjoyment factor. Wine is an incredibly subjective and emotive subject, however, the feedback we've received from guests over recent seasons endorses their aims of providing wines to enhance your meal and to suit most tastes. They hope you will enjoy them as much as they do!
