Combining glamour, tradition and Olympic quality winter sport, the Swiss Alps are top of many a winter escape wish-list. Regardless of whether you prefer to spend your days on-piste or off, a chalet like this is the perfect retreat at the end of the day.
After a hard day on the slopes, an inviting dining room filled with food (hopefully fondue), drink and good company is invaluable. Dark wood is usually seen as formal, but when combined with soft lighting and comfortable upholstered dining chairs, it becomes the heart of a warm and welcoming chalet dining setting. Aprés-ski is a prerequisite of chalet life, so a small shelving unit stocked with glassware and bar accessories close to hand is imperative.
