Spa Pleisure is our own 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.
Alp Leisure Private Nannies - 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 villas 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.
On the Mountain - 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.
