If ever there was an occasion deserving of a little glitz and glamour it’s surely New Year’s Eve - and where could be more glamourous than the magnificent Alps? Whether you’re planning a cosy night in for two, a big house party or a night out on the town, there are options aplenty, and until you’ve seen fireworks framed by the grandeur of the Alps, you haven’t lived.
If you’re whisking your other half away for a romantic escape, then a chalet in the Alps at New Year couldn’t be more perfect. Think hot tubs, roaring open fires, champagne at midnight and wrapping up warm to watch the fireworks.
Add a few more people to the party, and an Alpine chalet can make a fabulous party venue for some of your favourite people. Splash out on catering to ensure a stress-free evening and then let the wine flow - it’s sure to be an unforgettable way to see in the New Year.
Of course, for some people it isn’t New Year’s Eve without a night out on the town, and the Alps can certainly provide some excellent partying. Both Val d’Isere and Verbier offer glamorous, upmarket dining and clubbing options, while most resorts will have some bars and restaurants where you can party until the early hours.
It’s a popular option, so make sure you’re booked up long in advance if that’s what you’re planning - you wouldn’t want to be caught short with no plans on the big night!
Of course, all three of these options offer a golden opportunity to squeeze in some skiing while you see in the New Year with some of your favourite people - although slopes are likely to be quiet on New Year’s Day as people sleep off the previous night!
Owning chalet or an apartment in the Alps means you can be an ideally place to host get-togethers of all kinds, whether it’s a family reunion, old friends getting together or just a romantic escape for two.
