In all the world there are a number of luxury ski holidays to be found but for the most discerning it is ski holidays in Europe, and specifically French ski holidays, that offer the premier skiing experience. And in Chalet Vincent you have found the very essence of excellence in French ski chalets.
Stand outside on the deck on a clear night and you’ll understand why Chalet Vincent got its name. The celestial canvas is a dazzling array of sparkling pinpricks, each flickering dot combining to illuminate the magnificent peaks of the Aiguille du Midi and looming Mont Blanc in a monochrome mountain masterpiece.
The same effect inspired Vincent Van Gogh to paint his famous depiction of the night sky of Saint Remy in 1889.
It was this image and even more importantly the haunting ballad by Don McLean telling his story that stuck in the head of the owner of Chalet Vincent, as he stood outside the recently acquired property on a beautifully clear winter night.
It truly was a Starry, Starry Night.
As he walked back inside, Chalet Vincent was borne.
