The Scott Dunn story began in 1986 when a young British ski fanatic Andrew Dunn had a bold idea that would revolutionize the ski industry. He built an awesome team of ski experts, which included present Guest Operations Director Oliver Evans, acquired a couple of ski chalets, and started to craft luxury ski chalet and hotel experiences for some seriously discerning guests. Together they changed the way chalets were run and set the gold standard for ski vacations.
Private fully-staff and catered Scott Dunn villas in the Mediterranean soon followed. Before long, the company was gaining renown for its no-holds-barred approach to catering for families.
A decade later, Scott Dunn branched out and started taking guests to incredible destinations right around the world, harnessing the same focus on adventure and luxury, and word got around about our reputation for having a 'nothing is too much trouble' philosophy. The passion for family travel remained and today you can book your children into one of many professionally run Scott Dunn kids clubs in a host of popular destinations.
