This impressive stand-alone chalet is set in an enviable position, overlooking the Belleville valley. Blending traditional materials with a modern, eclectic interior, the chalet provides spacious open-plan living and jaw-dropping views over the valley. Located less than 200 metres from the ski lifts, the chalet allows you to be close to the action whilst still retaining some privacy.

2. Cesa del Louf, Arabba
Located close to Arabba in the heart of the Dolomites, Cesa del Louf is the combination of two internally connected buildings. Renovated with sustainability in mind, the chalet has been restored using recycled materials and has retained its traditional appearance and charm. The ski lifts are just a five-minute ride in a snowcat that is used exclusively for guests of the chalet. Inside, the chalet offers spacious open-plan living with a wood-burning fireplace and epic mountain views. There's plenty of local artwork on display and five spacious suites for up to 10 guests. After skiing, relax in the cinema room or relax and recharge in the spa complete with sauna, Turkish bath, experience shower and relaxation area. An indoor pool features a counter-current and whirlpool too!

3. Chalet La Fenice, Breuil-Cervinia
The perfect spot to retreat and relax, Chalet La Fenice is one of the finest chalets in Cervinia. With a spacious spa, private cinema and state-of-the-art games and entertainment, the facilities are second to none. From the sumptuous living areas to the soaring atrium with its bespoke Swarovski chandelier, this is what understated chalet luxury looks like. The chalet is available fully serviced with delicious dinners provided by your own private chef. You also have your own chauffeur to ferry you around the resort from 8am until midnight.

4. Chesa el Toula, St. Moritz
We may be biased, but our exclusive chalet in St Moritz is one of the leading mountain retreats in Switzerland. Set in the prestigious Suvretta area, el Toula combines traditional Engadine features with the finest Italian stones, marble, designer furnishings and one-off pieces from around the world. Set over five floors, the chalet offers a cosy living room, beautiful dining area and a wonderful spa with indoor and outdoor hot tubs, a pool, gym and hammam. There's plenty of post-ski entertainment on offer too in the form of a cinema room and a bar with pool table. What's more the chalet comes with the use of a Heritage Land Rover Defender - perfect for exploring the snowy surrounds of St. Moritz.

5. Chalet Zermatt Peak, Zermatt
It's hard to beat the location of Chalet Zermatt Peak. Set into the mountainside, the chalet is perched high above the village with exceptional views of the Matterhorn. Accessed via a private tunnel, the chalet is the peak of luxury with a designer interior featuring wood, glass and stone as well as bespoke furnishings. There are five opulent bedrooms and an outstanding spa opening onto the terrace. Even the ski room is the lap of luxury with surround sound, TV and atmospheric lighting.

6. Chalet Alpaca, Meribel
Just 100 metres from the slopes, Chalet Alpaca has everything you could want from a luxury chalet. There's the magnificent mountain views, the cosy living area with a fireplace, not to mention the superb outdoor pool and copper hot tub. Other wellness features include a hammam, sauna, rain shower, massage room and gym. However, it's the entertainment that is the real highlight at Alpaca. With a cinema room, bar and games room with pool table, there is plenty to keep everyone amused during their stay. The real excitement though is the incredible indoor climbing wall. In fact, there is so much going on, you won't need to leave the chalet at all!

7. Chalet Marco Polo, Val d'Isere
Situated close to the centre of Val d'Isere, we love the Oriental vibe at Chalet Marco Polo. The sophisticated interior features carved wood and weathered timber as well as stainless steel and crystal chandeliers and state-of-the-art technology. Guests can enjoy views of the famous La Face piste from the balcony, an opulent spa and space to party with a bar, entertainment system, laser effects and smoke machine. Children will love the games room with interactive racing car game and pool table.

8. Chalet Joux Plane, Morzine
Tucked into the mountainside, Chalet Joux Plane dazzles with its contemporary design. One side of the chalet has been constructed almost entirely from glass, providing a gateway to the mountain views. Also overlooking the surrounding peaks is a striking floating mezzanine dining area with a spacious living area below. However, our favourite feature of the chalet has to be the 23-metre indoor-outdoor swimming pool with a bridge to the terrace. There's also a stylish cinema room, games room with pool table and an art gallery for a splash of culture.

9. Chalet 1551, Lech
Ideal for foodies, Chalet 1551 serves up incredible Austrian cuisine, fine dining and the best wines from the chalet's private cellar. Matching the cuisine is the design with interiors the vision of CasusCasa. High-quality materials and tasteful furnishings feature throughout with fabrics by Etro from Italy, Rubelli from Venice and handcrafted curtains by La Cuona. Ski-in/ski-out, Chalet 1551 couldn't be more convenient for accessing the slopes and after returning to the door of the chalet the superb spa awaits.

10. Hahnenkamm Lodge, Kitzbuhel
Just 50m from the start line of the famous Hahnenkamm race held in January, Hahnenkamm Lodge offers an unbeatable location with spectacular views. Set over four floors, guests can enjoy views from the spacious living area and vast terrace, complete with fire pit. You're sure to get a good nights sleep in one of the five beautifully-appointed bedrooms. We particularly love the master suite with its open plan living area and cow-themed freestanding bathtub. There's also a delightful wellness area with a Finnish pine sauna and steam bath.
