This small set of self-contained properties has been designed with the ski enthusiast in mind, giving all guests immediate access to the top of the slopes without having the sleep in the snow. Combining the comfort of a traditional ski chalet, modern appliances and functionality, modern design and architectural triumph, Gondola Chalet is the perfect location for any ski enthusiast in Niseko. The houses are all fully self-contained, making them ideal for extended stays, and each of the chalet's bedrooms are available in both double and single bedding configurations, meaning the destination is also perfect for families or groups of friends.
Located, technically, in Upper Hirafu village, Gondola Chalet is removed from the main precinct of town for peace, quiet and privacy, but is separated only by a short ski shuttle ride. It is, of course, only a short walk from the Hirafu Gondola, and the shuttle will also take you to any of the other ski lifts in the area. Each of the chalets features a combination of traditional charm, using natural wooden material throughout, and modernity through large windows, natural light and stunningly high ceilings. So if you've got non skiers tagging along, don't worry - the chalet also provides a wide range of in-room entertainment and is inherently cosy, relaxing and serene.

Three Bedroom ChaletThe first thing you'll notice about the three-bedroom chalets is the incredible amount of space provided. Not only are guests offered three large bedrooms, but the open plan living area is big enough to accommodate many more - with plenty of comfortable seating, dining space and a huge fully equipped kitchen. This spaciousness, combined with the use of traditional wooden material and warm neutrals throughout the house will ensure all guests feel right at home. Split across two levels, the chalet features three large bathrooms, one ensuited, and one shared powder room for guests.
Each of the bedrooms contains its own built-in wardrobe for storage as well as large windows making them feel large and open. The chalet also features a fully equipped kitchen, ideal for cooking for a large group, with state-of-the-art appliances and plenty of prep and storage space. This is complemented by a huge dining area, which is situated between two - that's right, two - lounge areas. The apartment contains four couches split into two areas, one with a large home theatre system and the other designed to accommodate cosy evenings, perhaps paired with a bottle of wine, featuring a large, modern fireplace. This is all topped off with two outdoor living spaces; a veranda on the bottom level and a private balcony overlooking the landscape on the upper level.

Sitting beside the kitchen is the comfortable dining area fit for six people - but don't worry, there are two spacious lounge areas to go along with it.

There are large windows throughout this open plan area, each letting in lovely views of the surrounding landscape as well as plenty of natural light. The apartment is, of course, furnished with contemporary furnishings that work to highlight the space's natural and homely feel while accentuating a chic and luxurious getaway vibe. One of the property's highlights, though, is its homage to traditional ski chalet's through the inclusion of lovely works of traditional art in both sculptures and paintings scattered throughout.
