For ski buffs and snow bunnies, this holiday season, there are a whole host of high altitude homes from around the world to enjoy. We recently launched our ski-In/ski-out category of stays to explore, but for those looking to take their passions to new heights, here is a roundup of some of our highest stays around the world*:
Luxury Cabin with Mountain Views (Breckenridge, CO, United States)
At over 3,000 meters, and within a short drive of Breckenridge (one of the highest altitude cities in the US), this luxurious log cabin offers the idyllic Summit County getaway with friends and family no matter the season.
Chalet Eichhorn (Valais, Switzerland)
Located on the outskirts of the car-free mountain village of Saas-Fee, this Swiss chalet, at an altitude of almost 2000 meters, is within easy reach of the local ski slopes.
Nature Lodge (Aosta, Italy)
This gorgeous stone-built lodge is only accessible with skis or snowshoes in the depths of winter. And at over 2,000 meters, it is one of Italy’s most elevated listings on Airbnb.
Converted Barn, Zermatt, Switzerland
Although it only measures a tiny 5 by 4.5 meters, this restored grain barn close to Zermatt feels surprisingly roomy. And with spectacular views of the Matterhorn, it is a truly special stay.
Petit Chalet (Chamonix, France)
Located at the foot of Mont Blanc, this small chalet measures only 35-square-meters but it packs a lot in: it comes with a covered terrace, small private garden and panoramic alpine views.
Stunning House in Sacred Valley (Cusco, Peru)
Nestled in Sacred Valley in the cradle of the Andes, and with stunning views from all angles, this villa is built using traditional, natural and local materials: adobe, wood, and stone, achieving a wonderful harmony with nature while providing modern comfort and amenities.
Stunning Yurt Property (Creede, CO, United States)
This true wilderness experience is perched at over 3,000 meters up the rugged San Juan Mountains. Off grid and with no internet, the yurt is designed for the adventurous at heart.
National Park Cabin (Valfurva, Italy)
You can only reach this alpine chalet by foot or by a four-wheel-drive vehicle authorized by the Stelvio National Park.
With the holiday season right around the corner, check friends and family off the list with an Airbnb gift card to inspire their next trip or why not try the new ski-in/ski-out search filter, making it easier to find and book great ski accommodation.
