10 reasons to rent a chalet in St Moritz next winter

The summer season has come to an end and experienced travellers know that it's now time to get serious about choosing the ski holiday destination! Below we have put together 10 reasons why you should choose to rent a chalet or a luxury apartment in St Moritz.
  1. The resort of St Moritz is located in the upper Engadine Valley with stable snow cover on the slopes, stunning scenery, sunny weather and a series of lakes which, once frozen, provide a unique setting for walking, cross-country skiing, snowkiting and world-famous events.
  2. St Moritz has certainly become world famous as a ski mecca, but did you know that for most visitors to the resort the slopes of Corviglia are not the main reason for spending their holidays here? Many come for the endless kilometres of walking paths and cross-country ski trails, leisurely horse-drawn carriage rides, gastronomic delights, tobogganing, unforgettable events and celebrations, shopping in exclusive boutiques, the art scene or simply to enjoy the Alpine lifestyle.
  3. Engadin Airport, just a short drive from St Moritz and welcoming private flights from all over the world, has become a gateway to the luxury and beauty of this Alpine resort.
  4. Various winter events have played an important role in establishing the resort as a centre of Alpine social life: Christmas and New Year celebrations in the resort’s grand hotels and restaurants, Snow Polo and White Turf races on the frozen Lake St. Moritz, a gastronomic festival, private shows of new fashion collections, bobsleigh, skeleton, alpine and cross-country skiing competitions, and The I.C.E. car event, to name just a few.
  5. St. Moritz and the Engadin Valley are sure to delight foodies and those for whom a delicious lunch or dinner is an essential part of any holiday: trendy gourmet restaurants with Michelin stars and Gault Millau points, classic French restaurants in Grand Hotels, delicious Italian pizzerias, traditional chalets with fondue and raclette, restaurants with Japanese and other international cuisines – the choice is endless!
  6. Choosing to spend your holiday in a private chalet or luxury apartment is a choice of a “home away from home” atmosphere, where everything is prepared for your arrival according to your wishes and preferences.
  7. Unlike staying in even the most luxurious ski hotel, staying in a private home means that the entire chalet team, from concierge to butler, will be only at your service at all times, ensuring that any request you make is dealt with as quickly and accurately as possible.
  8. Despite all the gastronomic diversity of the region, it is often the case that after a day spent outdoors, you don’t want to go anywhere at all and the only wish is to warm up tired muscles in the sauna, wrap yourself in a fluffy dressing gown and enjoy dinner in front of the big screen. Or organise a reception for friends in the cosy atmosphere of a chalet. Or arrange something unusual, like a winter picnic with hot fondue on a secluded mountain slope, where you will be delivered by helicopter. And this is where your private chef will come in handy.
  9. Accommodation in chalets and apartments is also ideal for families with small children who need space and often peacefulness. Moreover It is an opportunity to spend more time with your family, to finally play cards, billiards together, to discuss future plans away from the daily hustle and bustle.
  10. Last but not least. The factors of confidentiality, privacy protection, and – which has become relevant since the pandemic – a more comfortable distance in case of need, are another reason to choose accommodation in one of the PPM chalets in St Moritz for your winter holiday.
