The Oxford Chalet Service
When booking one of our recommended chalets you don’t just receive a luxurious chalet in a fantastic location, you also have exceptional service from their chalet teams throughout your stay. There’s a large list of services that you will normally find within our recommended chalets that keep them head and shoulders above the competition. This often includes champagne and canapés on arrival, breakfast, afternoon tea and a four-course dinner. Not to forget an open bar throughout your stay in many of the chalets we feature. Moving on from food, our guests will often receive a resort driving service. This is perfect in making sure that you can easily get to the ski lifts or to any planned dinner reservations. Though none of these are guaranteed with our recommended chalets, they are extremely likely – give us a call and ask what your chalet of choice can do for you!
Our Recommended Chalets in Verbier
Chalet Bella Coola is a fantastic chalet a few minutes from the centre of the village and the main lift stations. On entering the chalet you are welcomed by a grand and elegant hallway. The chalet sleeps ten and upstairs you will find four en-suite bedrooms. This stunning property is set out over four floors, linked by stairs and a lift.
One of the highlights of this chalet is the colonial-style spa and wellness area. Bright and airy, imposing columns surround the indoor pool, whilst romantic drapes frame the floor-to-ceiling French windows. Glass-filled archways separate the pool from the spacious pool bar creating the perfect setting to relax and socialise in. There is also a Turkish hammam and shower just off this room.
The top floor showcases the fantastic master bedroom. French windows open out to a beautiful private terrace that boasts an open but intimate atmosphere, thanks to the surrounding pine trees.
Sirocco is a fantastic chalet situated in Verbier. Perched high on the side of the mountain this property offers breath-taking views. The Sirocco sleeps up to eight people in four luxurious bedrooms. The master bedroom has French windows that open out to a spacious terrace where you can enjoy the spectacular views. The spa and entertainment zone is spread over the ground floor, offering one of the most luxurious in-chalet spa experiences in the Alps.
On the first floor you will find a wonderful open plan living and dining area. Stunning floor to ceiling French windows open out onto the large wrap-around terrace, the perfect spot to sit back in the warm fur covered chairs and watch the sun go down. In the evening enjoy a glass of champagne in front of the roaring fire whilst the bright lights of Verbier create a spectacular backdrop in the distance.
Our main aim will always be to find the perfect place for you. We visit our portfolio regularly so we can feel confident we are recommending the best of the best. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with The Oxford Ski Company to arrange your next ski holiday.”
