All hail to the daddy of all ski chalets. Chalet Edelweiss is a temple of mountain luxury that simply takes your breath away. Extending over seven floors and offering a massive 3,000 metres sq of space, it successfully blends the line between a catered chalet and boutique hotel. Even the location is to die for. Nestling among pine trees in exclusive Bellecote, you are right next to the piste with ski-in/ski-out accesss and only a couple of minutes from the centre of Courchevel 1850. Chalet Edelweiss is built around a stunning spiral staircase and has separate accommodation and access for the numerous dedicated staff. There will be too much to take in when you first arrive at your palatial luxury ski chalet. Just for starters, there’s an entire floor of spa facilities with a pool, a gym, therapy room, hammam and sauna, a private nightclub in the basement…Yes, that’s right – your own nightclub, complete with DJ booth, bar and dance floor. At this level of luxury, details such as the private cinema room, two professional chefs and two butlers, and the ability to ski in and out begin to start sounding commonplace. We haven’t even mentioned the private ski instructor and the basement parking which is accessed by a car lift. OK. Perhaps you should take a breather at this point, before Chalet Edelweiss totally overwhelms you. Just push open the door of the huge ski room, inhale the pine-scented mountain air, step into your skis and head off down the Bellecote piste. Could anything be more perfect? Just like an exclusive, private hotel, Chalet Edelweiss has a large team to look after guests and provide an all-round pampering experience for everyone. You might have early birds and night owls, skiers and non-skiers, old and young – no demand is too much trouble. The staff area has its own separate entrance and the privacy of guests is key. From the moment you wake up, everything is taken care of. Delicious breakfasts, bookings made for lunch in the mountains, a chauffeur-driven ride into town, private ski lessons and a massage at the end of the day. Chalet Edelweiss has it all.
Please note that all food and beverages will be charged for separately.
Chalet Edelweiss has 8 bedrooms, sleeping 16 people.
A master suite occupies the whole top floor, and covers 100sqm. It has a king-size bed, two dressing rooms, a luxurious en-suite bathroom and private lounge. Access is via the lift or the stairs.
A second master bedroom is on the second floor, offering a king-size bed, large bathroom and two dressing rooms. On the same floor are two further rooms with en-suite bathrooms. One is a twin bedroom, whilst the other has a double bed.
On the first floor, on the same level as the ski room and access to the slopes, are four further double bedrooms, two of which can be separated into twin beds. Each has a private bathroom, and one of the rooms is wheelchair accessible.

Just like a luxury hotel, the catering at chalet Edelweiss is first class and a la carte. Two experienced and highly trained chefs are in charge of the professional kitchen, and they can suggest menus to suit your tastes, whatever they may be.
All the food and drink at the chalet is charged as an extra cost, so it is entirely up to you whether you wish to dine in or out, arrange an early tea for the children, or throw a party in the nightclub. Just let the staff know your plans and they can make all the arrangements, whipping up tantalising canapés, gourmet banquets or healthy snacks.
Your favourite fine wines and champagnes can be stocked in advance.
