Fully staffed, Private Luxury Chalets and Villas with 'Freedom to Choose'
Alp Leisure Ltd has been providing tailor-made holidays in luxury ski chalets and summer villas since 1997 and has a well-established reputation for discreet professionalism and seamless service. Combine our portfolio of outstanding privately owned luxury chalets in Courchevel and Méribel and our villas on the Cote d'Azur with our unique ethos of ‘Freedom to Choose’ and you soon understand why our guests return to us year after year. Each private chalet and villa is staffed with mature, experienced personnel and our chauffeurs, nannies, masseurs and beauty therapists are on hand should they be required.
Each luxury ski chalet or summer villa is booked as a whole, so that your privacy as a group is maintained; and the rental price includes professional staff (chef, manager and housekeeper/masseur – all of whom live-out), all running costs, finest quality bed and bathroom linen including bathrobes and slippers, L’Occitane bath products, daily newspaper and champagne on arrival. All of our private chalets and villas are equipped as standard with open fires for the winter and air conditining for the summer, flat-screen TV (with DVD and Sky Satellite), computer with WiFi broadband internet and TV/games room and/or spa areas.
The Highest Standards
Cuisine is of the highest standard, but with flexibility, which puts you in control - you pay for food at actual cost, so you decide. If you would like sautéed fois gras followed by filet de bœuf béarnaise with a raspberry pannacotta and wild berry coulis for dessert, then why not? On the other hand, one evening you may prefer a light supper after lunching at the 2 Michelin-starred Chabichou for example. Our chefs can create a superb menu tailored to your own pre-designated individual tastes and requirements, and you just pay the actual cost of your grocery bills at the end of your holiday.
We have a comprehensive selection of wines, champagnes, bottled water and soft drinks available in each luxury chalet and villa so you can help yourself as and when you please. With house wines from €6 a bottle through to fine wines at €30 you may dine, happy in the knowledge that you are in total control of costs.
First Class Private Luxury Transport is a subsidiary of Alp Leisure Ltd and our chauffeur-driven luxury 4x4 vehicles can transfer you between airport and chalet or villa in utmost comfort. All vehicles are equipped with air conditioning, tinted windows, leather interiors, refreshment coolers and DVD players to help while away the transfer time. Please see www.firstclass-transport.com for more information, or you can book directly with our Customer Services manager - we offer our guests a discounted price plus a complimentary ‘in-resort’ chauffeur service between 8am and 10pm (and to 1am on staff day off).
Spa Pleisure is our dedicated in-house massage and beauty therapy service. Our experienced therapists will be at your disposal for massage and beauty treatments in the comfort of your luxury chalet or villa. Among other things, they specialise in ‘après-ski’ massage in the winter (treating the muscle groups used during skiing to soothe away unwanted aches and pains), ultimate body treatment (particularly popular in the summer to exfoliate and nourish sun-drenched skin), hot stone massage, hydrating facials, manicures and pedicures; so you can be indulged after a hard day of soaking up the sun or luxury skiing on or off piste.
Being parents ourselves, we truly understand the need for confidence and peace of mind when leaving your little ones in the care of a nanny during your winter holiday. Our nannies work exclusively in our private chalets and are chosen for their experience with and love of children. They can be on hand during the day to entertain your youngsters (on a half day, daily or weekly basis) and also later on, should you decide to go out for the evening. We have a large selection of baby and toddler equipment from sterilisers and stair gates to baby monitors and ‘bouncers,’ all supplied free of charge.
During the winter, your ski passes are ordered on-line in the chalet for you, so that you will be up and away to the slopes for some luxury skiing without having to waste time standing in queues. On the same note, your choice of skis and boots, fitted in the chalet by an experienced technician, will be delivered directly to you ready for skiing and collected at the end of the week to save you having to queue in busy shops.
Tailor-Made For You
Having lived and worked in France since 1995, we have in-depth local knowledge and personal relationships with many excellent local suppliers, restaurateurs, instructors, guides and ski schools, and will be happy to recommend and reserve for you the best of these who have an established reputation.
Our Customer Services manager will act as your personal concierge from the moment you book and will ensure your stay, in whichever luxury ski chalet or summer villa you have chosen, is exactly as you want it. Of course, if you have any special requests not covered above, we will do our utmost to fulfil them so that you may enjoy a truly relaxing and memorable holiday.
At the end of your holiday all purchases and services arranged on your behalf are presented to you on one invoice – a swipe of your credit card and everything is dealt with (the final bill can also be settled by Euros, Euro cheque or travellers cheques).
We look forward to seeing you here in one of our luxury ski chalets or our magnificent Cote d'Azur villas!
