About us

Our aim is to take very aspect of the chalet holiday; skiing, food, service, wine, and make it better!

We believe the Tarentaise Valley offers unequalled skiing and we continually work to ensure the service in our chalets matches the quality of the skiing. We have guests that return every year to experience this with us. We can offer something for everyone, be the adrenaline junkie or the ultimate foodie.


Finest Properties

Whether you are looking for ski-in-ski-out, rustic charm or modern contemporary furnishings, we have a portfolio of luxury chalets that provides something for every taste. We can cater for individuals up to groups of 20 guests.


Food Philosophy

We employ only professional chefs here at Alpine culture and we are constantly looking to exceed guests expectations of chalet dining. Our chefs design their own menus weekly and are happy to cater to incorporate any diets or requests.


Tailored solution

When you come on holiday with Alpine Culture, you leave stress at the airport. We offer a end-to-end solution covering all aspects of your trip. We do everything and all you have to do is relax and enjoy.

We pick you up from the airport in state-of-the-art transport (we run a fleet of Volkswagen Caravelles that seat up to 8).
On arrival at the chalet your en suite room will be waiting for you, along with your ski passes, so no queuing up on Sunday morning. We will supply you with up to the minute equipment that has been tailored to your ability.
