What is the most important factor when booking a venue for a Christmas party?


Three of a Kind - Ski Chalets


Chalet 14 Verbier - 1110_Chalet_14_Verbier_(1)_small.jpgChalet 14, Verbier, Switzerland
The sexiest chalet in the Alps used to be a hotel, before getting a no-expense-spared makeover in 2010. Now available to book through Abercrombie & Kent Ski (tel: 0845 618 2215), it sleeps up to 26 guests in three suites and 10 bedrooms and comes with a 10m pool and private cinema. For advice on events in the Swiss Alps, contact the Switzerland Convention & Incentive Bureau (tel: 020 7845 7686, squaremeal.co.uk/scib).

Artemis Chalet - 1110_artemis_switzerland_(2).jpgArtemis: St Anton, Austria
Designed firmly with corporate groups in mind, Artemis has six large en-suite rooms and a 12-seater cinema. It also comes with chauffeur-driven Mercedes-Benz 4x4s. Champagne receptions and gourmet meals can be enjoyed each night, along with a range of teambuilding activities. Innsbruck is just an hour’s drive away. Book through Scott Dunn’s corporate break team (tel: 020 8682 5050).

Villa Gella - Terrace Villa_Gella_Terrace_Winter_sml.jpgVilla Gella, Pamporovo, Bulgaria
Not exactly a ski chalet but close enough to the Bulgarian ski resort of Pamporovo to deserve a mention. Half-hotel, half-villa, this luxurious boutique property opened earlier this year, sleeps up to 12 and makes an ideal directors’ retreat. There’s a 10m pool, meetings can be held in the library and there’s a plethora of teambuilding activities on offer. Book direct (tel: 00359 888 566 872).
