Chalet Alpinium Discerning Collection

The Discerning Collection launch NEW Ski Portfolio

January 2017/…Privately owned tour operator, The Discerning Collection, is thrilled to launch their NEW Ski Portfolio, the first time ever the company has expanded their winter product into the mountains. The team has hand-picked a stunning selection of chalets across the French Alps in resorts such as La Plagne, Tignes and La Tania with all chalets being offered on a fully catered basis with service being of paramount importance.

The Discerning Collection’s charming chalets all have live in staff who will look after guests and prepare mouth-watering meals after a busy day on the slopes and who will be on hand to offer help and advice about the resort. All chalets are ideally located close to a village, near to ski lifts, in snow-sure resorts and a huge bonus is that they’re all ski in/ski out. With chalets sleeping anywhere between 6 – 19 people, one huge benefit about The Discerning Collection’s portfolio is that as well as booking the chalet for your own exclusive use, each and every property can also be booked on a room only basis – perfect for couples or small groups looking for a catered chalet experience.

 

Nick Wrightman, CEO & Founder of The Discerning Collection comments “To be in a position to finally meet the demand of our customers and launch a winter ski programme is such an exciting time for us. We have no doubt that our cherry-picked selection of chalets will go over and above our client’s expectations in terms of service, design and location. We’ve chosen a fantastic selection of properties, perfect for families and friends alike and we look forward to expanding the portfolio for the 2017/2018 season”.
