If you can't decide from the mountains of accommodation options for your last-minute ski holiday, don't worry, as we have picked out five luxury chalets to coincide with the recent release of the film Chalet Girl.

Luxury ski chalets: Chalet Artemis, St Anton

Nestled in the charming Austrian resort of St Anton (one of the film locations used in Chalet Girl), the hexagonal Chalet Artemis offers its own ‘wellness area’ to ease the aches and pains after a gruelling day of skiing. Furnished to a high standard in a contemporary style, the six-room, catered chalet sleeps 12 and has its own retro cinema, swimming pool, and free chauffeur service.

Luxury ski chalets: Le Kilimanjaro, Val d’Isère

Located just a two-minute drive from the glamorous slopes of Val d’Isère, Le Kilimanjaro provides a tasteful combination of rustic aesthetics and luxurious indulgence. Decked out in 200-year-old reclaimed wood and Italian tiles, the catered chalet sleeps eight and rental includes chauffeur and concierge services, a nightly five-course meal from your own private chef, and an open bar to kick-start your après-ski in style.

Luxury ski chalets: La Folie Douce, Courchevel

Courchevel isn’t just famous for its skiing – it has become synonymous with style, glamour and sophistication, and this is reflected in this super-modern chalet that offers more than a log fire and mountain views. Sleeping eight, it has everything you need to indulge and unwind with friends or family, from your own private chauffeur, in-house chef and therapists, to a stunning spa including swimming pool, squash court, sauna and jacuzzi.

Luxury ski chalets: Chalet Zermatt Peak, Zermatt

If you’re looking for a luxurious, yet modern take on chalet living, Chalet Zermatt Peak fits the bill. The chalet, in the Swiss resort of Zermatt, comes equipped with all mod cons – two HD cinema screens, five en-suite rooms, jacuzzi, sauna, and a masseuse at your beck and call. If that’s not enough, panoramas of the imposing Matterhorn mountain should be enough to entice even the most ensconced guest onto the slopes.

Luxury ski chalets: Chalet Sous Les Bois, Chamonix

Set over three floors and boasting an impressive 360sq m (3,875sq ft) of living space, Chalet Sous les Bois is all about space, luxury and relaxation. The five master bedrooms all boast super king size beds, contemporary Italian furniture, underfloor heating and stunning bathrooms, while the top floor provides an ideal space to unwind after a hard day’s skiing with comfy sofas, roaring log fire, bar, pool table and, of course, fantastic mountain views from its Chamonix location.
