Family-Friendly Hotel Zalwonder in Ischgl, Austrian Tirol
Following an eight month construction period, the Hotel Zalwonder in Ischgl, run by the Häusler family, will reopen on 23 December 2022 – just in time for the Christmas holidays.
The name Zalwonder comes from an old dialect word meaning family, and that is very much the focus here. The hotel has a total of 36 stylish rooms and suites ideal for couples and families. The main highlight is the infinity pool on the fourth floor, where the water is kept at a pleasant 32 degrees Celsius all year round. And there is a large spa area too.
A week’s stay is priced from £860 / €966 pp based on two people sharing a double room. Flights and transfers extra.

Click on the snowshoes, team up with a friendly four-legged friend, and explore the beautiful snowy paths and woodland of La Plagne.

The new rooms combine comfort and modernity in a chic-mountain style. The building has been fully redesigned, from the insulation and cladding to the heating system and the roof. The works have been undertaken with a focus on sustainability, so all materials have been sourced locally and the works were carried out by local companies.

A brand new chalet for this season, Chalet K120 in Le Praz, is ready to host up to fourteen guests for New Year and can be booked for an entire group of friends and family, or as separate en-suite rooms.
Close to Courchevel, but without its neighbour’s price-tag, Le Praz is an authentic Alpine town, with top restaurants, festive activities and easy access to the world’s most famous ski area, the Three Valleys.
Departing on 31st December a week’s stay at Chalet K120 costs £1244pp and includes free use of the chalet’s sauna and hammam, return flights from Gatwick, transfers, and hosted chalet accommodation with breakfast, afternoon tea and three course evening meals with unlimited wine.
We figured that the week from Saturday 17th to Saturday 24th December 2022 would be a super-popular week as it is a School holiday week (for both State and Private Schools) but one that still allows families to get home before Santa arrives and (just) in time for the Mother-in-law’s Brussels sprouts!
It seems, however, that our optimism was perhaps misplaced and, with some wonderful chalets still to sell, we have taken the decision to lower prices for that week … and by as much as 20% in some cases!
Chalet Impala (14)
Impala offers beautiful accommodation including a large & open-plan lounge/ dining area with double height ceiling, open-fire, balcony and chic glass walls through to the kitchen. Guests benefit from a huge terrace measuring 1000 sq ft with sunken hot-tub, sauna house and stunning views across the Valley. There is also a Media Room with XL screen, surround sound & games console. The chalet has seven en-suite bedrooms.Price has been reduced from £16,950 to £13,650
Chalet Evergreen (15)
We think it’s telling that, in an average season, 75% of the guests staying in Chalet Evergreenwill have previously stayed there. Evergreen is like an old friend to everyone at The Chalet Company, it has been in our portfolio since 2012 and the first contract we sign each year. And it’s easy to understand why; doorstep-skiing, outdoor hot-tub, indoor sauna, fireplace, en-suite bedrooms & stunning views. What’s not to like?!
Price has been reduced from £17,750 to £14,200

Chalet le Refuge has arguably the best location of any chalet in Méribel; it is located in the heart of la Chaudanne at the bottom of the Truite piste and just twenty metres from the Telecabine de Tougnete, thirty metres from Legends chairlift, fifty metres from Saulire Express and seventy-five metres from Telecabine de Rhodos. The chalet has lovely open-plan living, games room, outdoor hot-tub and five en-suite bedrooms
