Iglú Hotel in Grau Roig, Andorra
Although it’s not technically a chalet – it’s a real igloo – the Iglú Hotel makes this list for a number of reasons. Firstly, it’s an exceptional place to stay: it is remade fresh each year, as soon as there is sufficient snowfall, and so its layout, size, and carved decorations vary from one year to the next. It can accommodate just 14 people at a time, so you can easily book it out for exclusive use; there’s an open-air jacuzzi, sauna and bar; breakfasts and gourmet dinners, with wine; are included; and even if you’re only staying for one night, you’ll get a piste basher ride, a night-time snowshoe trek, and be the first person on the piste in the morning, even before the lifts have opened.
Sleeps: 14 people in four bedrooms
Cost: €840 pp per week
