The World’s Best Ski Lodges

Share this Post!

Sleek and edgy. That’s Bond, James Bond.

The illustrious Bond seduced glamorous women, extirpated evil, and at the end of a covert mission was able to toast himself for a job well done with his celebrated martini: shaken, not stirred. But this time around, Bond is the one seduced, beguiled by these super high-end ski lodges that remain unsurpassed in world-class style. Why should 007 be the only one to experience living in famed, fun-filled ski lodges? As it turns out, he’s not.

It’s time to create your own fantasy, snowy ski moment, like Bond. And to help you, here’s a look at three luxurious ski lodges that mirror the sensational living Bond does in each of his films, which you may want to binge-watch on your next ski holiday.

On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

One Bond film, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, follows Bond as he subdues a villain with the most action-packed ski scenes and scenic winter imagery imaginable — from Schilthorn, Lauterbrunnen to Saas-Fee, Switzerland.
This film celebrates the most memorable ski chase scenes of all time, as much as this home celebrates the most luxurious living space that Bond would enjoy.

The view is a perfect backdrop to drinking a Bond-style martini.

Sleep here in Bond-like sophistication.


 The Spy Who Loved Me

The opening downhill ski chase in The Spy Who Loved Me is a much-loved movie scene for Bond and ski fans alike: 007 skis off a cliff, falling thousands of feet before freeing his parachute and landing to safety. And, hopefully, landing in this living room.

And you only live twice: once when you’re born, and once when living here.

The ideal outdoor space where Bond can relax.

Bathe like Bond himself: Bond’s unique shower routine starts with hot water, and ends with freezing cold water. And with these heated marble floors.


 For Your Eyes Only

For Your Eyes Only is a memorable Bond classic film with the ultimate ski chase scene: off the ski jump, through the bobsleigh track and through a restaurant of Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy. And the action-packed, ski scene calls for the most opulent ski lodging imaginable. Where Bond will surely not be disappointed.

Bond and his friends could engage in conversation here and discuss disempowering any potential villains.

There’s nothing like a good Bond film to snuggle up and watch on a lazy Sunday afternoon – in your ski chalet after a busy day on the slopes.
Whatever your desire, the aforementioned ski lodges were made for you to leisurely lounge in, with a cocktail in hand, enjoying the fireplace, and watching the lofty soft snow outside under a starry night sky. You have nowhere to go, nothing to do, except to bask in luxury. With Bond himself reminding you: “It’s all right. It’s quite all right. You’ve got all the time in the world.”
