The ultimate chalet holiday

Imagine an alpine chalet right next to the slopes with a private butler, cook, yoga and massage therapist. Simply a perfect skiing trip with your friends or family.
You should gather a larger group as most chalets are quite spacious with their private spas, pools, game rooms, wine cellars and sometimes even a private club and ice rink. Like The Arula Chalets in Lech we have visited this week.
There is no limit when it comes to your perfect alpine imagination. Besides different saunas, outdoor Jacuzzi’s and private tour guides for days off piste the Chalets by Pepper Collection in the village of Lech, Austria do not leave out any services you can imagine in the snow.

Lech – the view from Chalet Mimi

Chalet Arula and Chalet Mimi are both situated in Oberlech directly at slopes. The rooms decorated in a cool, yet cosy alpine interior style allow for privacy, yet there are many facilities where you can meet up, like an inhouse cinema, ice rink, wine cellar for tastings, library living room, game room, pool and even a parking garage fitted with a Bose sound system that transfers easily into an underground garage club, so that neighbours and nature will not be disturbed.
Whether you are a child or adult the Arula chalets offers the perfect playground in the mountains.

Homemade breakfast after a first morning run on skis.

Spend time in the library curated by THE ULTIMATE LIBRARY, a service from London that curates your personal bookshelves and game room with the gadgets you like. Or have your private masseuse that can treat you after coming back from a day skiing.
Another perfect moment is early morning when you have the benefit of being the first on the slopes. Do some runs and return for breakfast at the fireplace or a yoga lesson.

A curated library as you wish, like for example with lots of art books in Chalet Mimi, curated by the Ultimate

There is also Chalet Mimi, on the peak of Oberlech, with six rooms, a pool and spa, outdoor jacuzzi and a large collection of fine art as Mimi, the wife of the owner is an art gallerist from Hongkong.

Everything will be done for a good night sleep, like for example room humidifier, perfect in higher destinations and to balance the dry air in the mountains

All this feels very cosmopolitan, but when you gather your family for dinner at the Stube, a wood panelled room with a tiled stove, you feel embraced and at home by the Austrian charm and tradition, especially when your private chefs cooks all the classics, like Tafelpitz, Winer Schnitzel and not to forget Salzburger Nockerl.

The Stube at Chalet Mimi is a perfect place after a day skiing
