Scott Dunn’s specialists look closer to unearth the special things and tiny touches, so that from the moment guests pick up the phone, they will notice the difference. They will be talking to an expert, not just a sales person and Scott Dunn’s personal service will ensure that their holiday is tailored to their family’s individual needs.

In the Alps, Scott Dunn operates stylish ski chalets that are the epitome of Alpine luxury, many with private pools and hot tubs. In terms of service, they are hard to beat: Laurent-Perrier on ice, REN skincare products, experienced chefs and there is an in resort driver service that takes care of the (ski) school run. As well as their chalets, there is a carefully selected portfolio of hotel properties across Europe and a brand new collection of hand-picked private houses and apartments that combine the support you need from Scott Dunn with the independence to do as you wish. Their North America programme has been entirely rebuilt and pairs Scott Dunn’s ski heritage with its tailor-made expertise to create unforgettable experiences; whether you are seeking unadulterated Colorado skiing bliss or if you want to mix your skiing with a longer trip to explore the States, Canada or the sunny beaches of the Caribbean.

The revered Scott Dunn Explorers children’s club in Val d’Isère and new Mini Explorers club at the Portetta Hotel in Courchevel Moriond (1650) are exclusively available to Scott Dunn guests from four months to 13 years.  The children’s club in Val d’Isère is full of toys, games and creative activities to keep children of all ages entertained. The club has a main play area where most of the fun happens, a chill out room with games console and television to regain some energy from all the exciting activities the nannies provide, and a sleep room for younger children who need some well-earned rest! The Val d’ Isère club also has a fully equipped kitchen where the nannies prepare home cooked, heart-warming lunches each day and will cater for any individual tastes and allergies that children may have.
