All hail to the Daddy of all ski chalets. Chalet Edelweiss is a newly-built temple of mountain luxury that simply takes your breath away. Extending over seven floors and offering a massive 3,000 metres sq of space, it successfully blends the line between a catered chalet and boutique hotel.
Even the location is to die for. Nestling among pine trees in exclusive Bellecote, you are right next to the piste and only a couple of minutes from the centre of Courchevel 1850. Chalet Edelweiss is built around a stunning spiral staircase and has separate accommodation and access for the numerous dedicated staff.
There will be too much to take in when you first arrive at your palatial luxury ski chalet. Just for starters, there’s an entire floor of spa facilities with a pool, a gym, therapy room and steam room, a private nightclub in the basement… Yes, that’s right – your own nightclub, complete with DJ booth, bar and dance floor.
At this level of luxury, details such as the private cinema room, two professional chefs and two butlers, and the ability to ski in and out begin to start sounding commonplace. We haven’t even mentioned the private ski instructor and the basement parking which is accessed by a car lift.
OK. Perhaps you should take a breather at this point, before Chalet Edelweiss totally overwhelms you. Just push open the door of the huge ski room, inhale the pine-scented mountain air, step into your skis and head off down the Bellecote piste. Could anything be more perfect?
Just like an exclusive, private hotel, Chalet Edelweiss has a large team to look after guests and provide an all-round pampering experience for everyone. You might have early birds and night owls, skiers and non-skiers, old and young – no demand is too much trouble. The staff area has its own separate entrance and the privacy of guests is key.
From the moment you wake up, everything is taken care of. Delicious breakfasts, bookings made for lunch in the mountains, a chauffeur-driven ride into town, private ski lessons and a massage at the end of the day. Chalet Edelweiss has it all.
