Find the Perfect European Chalet

We scoured our favorite European mountain towns—from the Dolomites in Italy to Chamonix in France and beyond—to find 11 of the chicest private homes available for vacationers. With lush interiors, breathtaking views and a long list of amenities and services that include in-house hammams, personal chefs and private elevators straight to the slopes, we won't blame you if you skip the skiing altogether.

Chalet Maria Schnee: St. Anton, Austria

St. Anton should be on every serious skiers bucket list. It’s one of the snowiest regions in Europe and the place where ski instructor Johann “Hannes” Schneider first coined the Alberg Technique in 1907—a teaching method that’s still used around the world today. History is paramount to the three-story chalet Maria Schnee—the doors and floorboards in the library are 300-year-old oak planks. Guests can get cozy with a beer and the local cheese board served each evening. Centrally located its 10-minutes from the center of St. Anton.
