Sea to Ski

From the best locations to the most luxurious accommodation, discover PURSUIT’s edit of the finest ski chalets in Europe to book now.

There may be a while to wait before you can get back on the water, but ski season is upon us. While Europe boasts some of the best ski resorts in the world, the challenge is finding a chalet which will exceed expectations, combining easy access to incredible skiing with unparalleled accommodation.


Chalet Sapphire


The Owner of Chalet Sapphire in Morzine set out with that very goal when they determined to build the ultimate luxury ski chalet. After a five-year search for the perfect location, they discovered a plot a short flat walk into the village, 500m from the nearest ski lift and with breath-taking views. Spread across 720sqm, Chalet Sapphire sleeps 12 in six exquisitely appointed en suite bedrooms. The exceptional Bamford Spa is a destination in its own right. Wellness treats include an indoor pool with massage jets, an eight-person hot tub, outdoor barrel sauna, Hammam, ice chamber, treatment room and hydrotherapy shower, as well as an air-conditioned gym. After an exhilarating day on the slopes, a Michelin-trained chef will prepare six-course Japanese inspired tasting menus, afternoon tea and gourmet evening meals, and the fully-staffed bar with pool table, wine cellar and cinema room ensure there’s plenty of entertainment as night falls.

Chalet Edelweiss

Courchevel 1850

Further south in Courchevel 1850, you’ll find Chalet Edelweiss: undisputedly the largest ski chalet in Europe at 3,200sqm set over seven decadent floors. Located in the exclusive Residence de Bellecôte area, its ski-in/ski-out status on the side of the blue Bellecôte piste, easy access to the Trois Vallées network and three-minute walk to town make Chalet Edelweiss hard to beat. With eight beautiful bedroom suites – one of which occupies the entire top floor – a huge ski room, 14m pool, Jacuzzi and Hammam, massage rooms, fully equipped gym, cinema room and its own private nightclub, big enough for 100 people, Edelweiss plays the ultimate host. Admire British owner Chris Levett’s priceless collection of art, including pieces by Pablo Picasso and Damien Hirst, mixed in with the handsome alpine-inspired interiors. Twelve live-in staff, including two dedicated butlers and an experienced team of British, French and Italian chefs will cater to your every whim.

Chalet Chouqui


Meanwhile, in Switzerland, Chalet Chouqui is truly the jewel in Verbier’s crown. At over 950sqm, comprising two interconnecting chalets, Chouqui sleeps up to 16 adults and four children – a property of this scale in Verbier is a rare find indeed. The chalet’s unrivalled location offers uninterrupted views of the Mont Blanc massif, best enjoyed, drink in hand, from the large south-facing terrace with its sunken hot tub, vast fire pit and alfresco dining area. Inside, refined interiors by acclaimed London interior designer Gytha Nuttal and state-of-the-art John Cullen lighting set the tone. Enjoy a swim in the 15m indoor pool (one of the largest in Verbier) followed by a Hammam. A games room, cinema room, bar and two sitting rooms with open fireplaces ensure there’s plenty to keep your guests entertained, while a dedicated team of ten members of staff and a 24-hour chauffeur service will make your stay at Chalet Chouqui truly effortless.
