- Sleeps 10
- Catered chalet
There is a distinct, Alpine character here with traditionally exposed
beams and feature oak fittings and flooring. All this is exquisitely
enhanced by the modern bathrooms, soft furnishings and technologies
within the apartment that result in an unrivalled sense of luxury and
comfort. A great feel of space and light is omnipresent, created by the high
ceilings and an abundance of natural light, including a stunning,
half-moon shaped feature French window that leads out onto an expansive,
south facing balcony. Within the apartment guests can enjoy the large, open plan
entertaining space on the lower floor as well as a second sitting area
on the upper floor, ideal for use as a cinema room.
The 5 bedrooms in the Alhena are spread over the two floors.
On the lower floor, there is a master suite and an additional double bedded room which has a separate shower room.
On the upper floor, there are two twin bedded rooms and a single
room that could potentially take an extra bed for a 10th person.
The Alhena is one of our Champagne Chalets, complete with champagne and canapés six nights of the week, homemade petit fours and a dedicated driver service. Our concierge service is also on hand to arrange any extras you may wish, such as restaurant reservations, massages or childcare. See what else is included in our Champagne Chalets below.

Verbier Resort Info
Verbier is credited as being one of the best resorts for advanced skiers, off-piste and après ski. This is not without due reason, as Verbier's breathtaking scenery invites ski holiday makers to enjoy unlimited off-piste and great black runs. There is also a small snowpark with access to bigger and better ones in nearby resorts. Access to 400km of varied pistes, excellent sun and snow records and some year round skiing on the Mont Fort glacier also means that Verbier appeals to most levels of skier. The disadvantages to skiing Verbier are that skiing lower down can be poor due to the sun, and that there can be long queues for the lifts.
Verbier ski resort
Verbier ski resort offers an excellent variety of restaurants, very lively nightlife and plenty of off-snow activities. However, prices are a bit of a shocker, even for Switzerland.

Snow Overview - Switzerland (snow news updated 04-Dec-2017)
Temperatures remained cold at around -2C in Switzerland on Thursday, and fresh snow has fallen at resorts that remain open. Visibility was largely limited as snow continues to fall up high, but conditions on the upper slopes are improving all the time.
In Adelboden (0/60cm) 10cm has fallen in the last 24 hours, whilst nearby at Gstaad (0/455cm) there has been around 15cm on the upper mountain. Lift numbers are limited at both resorts due to the tine of the year, however, if you do head up you can expect to enjoy some quiet slopes.
The best skiing can be found around the Matterhorn region, where only 6cm has fallen at Zermatt (0/155cm), but across the border in Italy there has been a lot of snow at Cervinia (30/235cm).
Pontresina (6/102cm) looks one of the best placed resorts to benefit from the snow that is forecast to fall over the next couple of days, and total accumulations could amount to around 75cm by Saturday morning.
Over the weekend we should see a change in the weather, with sun and warmer temperatures predicted to replace the current cloud.
European Weather Outlook
Across the central European Alps, snow and cold temperatures are forecast to stick around until Saturday. Accumulations of snow on the upper slopes could be huge for the time of year, with some Swiss resorts predicting around 80cm over the course of today and Friday. By the weekend the snow is predicted to subside in many regions and a mixture of sun and cloud is expected for much of Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland.
In the Pyrenees, Saturday should be the pick of the day for any skiing in Andorra. Our featured resorts are now closed for the season, but for anyone strapping on their skins, you can expect a mixture of sun and cloud, with temperatures around +3C
In Germany, 44cm of fresh snow is being forecast for Garmisch (0/380cm), who will be in disbelief at the moment for all the snow they have received of late.
Further north you can expect temperatures of around -3C and snow showers in Norway, which are set to continue right through to Sunday for resorts such Trysil. Across the border in Sweden, the weather should be fairly similar, but any snow that does fall is likely to be light and bring only 1-2cm.
Despite some recent biting temperatures and cold winds in the UK, any snow that does fall on the Scottish mountains is most likely to be on Thursday. Thereafter, rain could destroy any hopes of some late season turns.
