You know when you’re looking at chalet accommodation in Megeve for £100,000 a week that you have made it in this world. Chinchilla might well be the most expensive accommodation yet in the Alps. This ultra luxe (well, it depends on your taste) traditional chalet sleeps 14 people in seven bedrooms. Found in the quaint hamlet of Monte d’Arbois – the centre of Megeve is a seven minute drive away – the chalet is right on the edge of the slopes. The décor, a mixture of simple rustic charm spruced up with impressive pieces of modern art, is comfortable, intimate and cosy with roaring fires throwing out heat into the rooms and the panoramic views from the terraces are wonderful. As you might expect, a private chef is constantly available as is a chauffeur and a butler.
