One of the greatest luxuries of any ski holiday is being able to step outside your chalet, clip your skis on and go. Being able to skip queues at the ski lifts or bus stops and avoid carrying heavy ski equipment around is high on our client’s wish list, so it is no wonder that ski-in/ski-out chalets are in demand in the French Alps. With this in mind, we’ve asked the World’s Best Ski Travel Agent, Leo Trippi, to recommend five of their favourite ski-in/ski-out chalets in some of the top ski resorts in France.
