After a long day exploring the snowy Alpine slopes, there’s nothing quite like gathering around the fireplace with your friends and family – glass of wine in hand – sharing exciting tales of your day’s mountain adventures. 

From traditional stone hearths to stylish suspended log-burners, the addition of a fireplace in a chalet or hotel helps make it feel a whole lot homelier. The pop and crackle as your logs heat up in the flames can be wonderfully atmospheric, setting the scene beautifully for a relaxing evening in. 

To offer up a little inspiration for your next ski holiday, here are a few of our favourite Alpine properties where open hearths, crackling fireplaces and toasty burners come as standard. 

Chalet La Maison, Alpe d’Huez

Chalet La Maison sits in a quiet cobbled courtyard at the upper end of Alpe d’Huez, with pistes running down either side. With ski in/out access, plus a nearby bucket lift for hassle-free access to the heart of the resort, the location is superb. Inside the property, guests enjoy a blend of traditional Alpine architecture and contemporary design. 

Chalet Telekie, Meribel

The lovely chalet Telekie is ideally located for ski and town access, with the Morel chairlift and the heart of Meribel both just a short walk away – a rare thing in this spread-out ski resort. Chalet Telekie offers guests a spacious and welcoming living and dining area, with large picture windows opening out onto a sun terrace. Five bedrooms all offer en suite facilities, and the traditional fireplace is a welcome centrepiece. 

Chalet Hautes Cimes, Nendaz

The chalet Hautes Cimes sits within easy reach of the lift station in Nendaz, just a short 100 metre stroll from the nearest piste. This elegant 14-bed chalet blends traditional Swiss Alpine architecture with contemporary flair, and offers an ideal base from which to explore the world-famous Four Valleys ski area. Inside, high quality fixtures and fittings make guests feel welcome, and the outdoor hot tub is ideal for relaxing evenings among friends and family.

Eden Rock, St Anton

For lively après ski and exciting ski terrain, St Anton ranks among Austria’s must-ski destinations – and the 5* chalet Eden Rock is the perfect base from which to make the very most of it. The Eden Rock can be booked on sole use by a group of 20, or split down into the chalet-apartments Ariane (6), Zari (6) and Kanzi (8) for smaller groups. It takes pride of place close to the Nasserein gondola, with the lively town centre just a 10-minute stroll away. 

Chalet-hotel Saint Christoph, Saint Christoph

The chalet-hotel Saint Christoph sits in a ski in/out location in the peaceful village of Saint Christoph, Austria, within easy reach of neighbouring St Anton. Stylish and traditional in its construction, the chalet-hotel Saint Christoph sits close to the ski school and nursery slopes, making it a popular accommodation choice for families with children.
