A Fabulous Winter Stay in a Luxury Chalet

A luxury chalet is one of many traditional wooden lodges found in the scenic Alps of Europe.  Most people don’t immediately place a luxury tag to a log cabin, but don’t be misled. Many of these chalets are spectacular and luxurious, in every sense of the word.

While a luxury chalet may certainly look comfortable, it would be hard to say that a log cabin is in any way luxurious. Just like hotels, a winter luxury chalet comes in many sizes and categories. We want to share some of these luxury winter chalets that can stand up to any luxury villa and hold its own.
