Apartment rentals are becoming popular as an alternative form of accommodations when you travel around the world these days. We’ve been lucky enough to stay in all sorts of accommodation over the years from cheap guest houses to five star resorts, and recently had the unique opportunity of staying in both an apartment and a hotel while visiting Venice.
Our vacation rental offers access to some of the best ski resorts in top Alps ski destinations. Here you can enjoy a fun ski vacation whether you’re headed for a double black diamond or the bunny slope. We’ve hosted televised extreme winter sports competitions for more than a decade – we featured the world-renowned sports with park to give brave visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try bobsledding, skeleton or luge. Mountain in Sun Valley is known as one of the best teaching mountains in the country, and Beav outdoor ice skating rink is delightful family fun. There’s also après ski fine dining, boutique shopping and more in store for your ski vacation.
Whether you’re looking for a secluded location, modern decor, extravagant furnishings, world-class service or a chalet with a twist, our reviews got you covered. We chose the best chalets across the Alps to carry out tried and tested reviews. Each chalet is rated out of 10 in the following categories: style, character, location, service, facilities, rooms, food and value for money to give you an in-depth look into what each property offers.
Traditionally, staying in a ski chalet was rather regimented and in most cases it still is. Wake up bright and early to a huge breakfast, return around four or five to mountains of cakes and hot chocolate before a four or five-course meal in the evening. But not everyone burns can burn calories on the snow each day so a tub of hot cheese, ham and buttery potatoes isn’t always necessary, but you need to get what you are given.

And while there’s no shortage of things to do in Manhattan or meals to enjoy at the best restaurants in New York, it’s worth setting aside time to also visit the island’s scenic gardens, lush parks and grand museums.
