Do you dream of old world alpine charm, but can’t live without those up-to-the-minute refinements? If so, just take a look at this quaint stone cottage peeking out from the pine trees. Chalet Almajur, one of the oldest buildings in St. Anton, has been completely rebuilt and transformed into a sumptuous modern ski chalet complete with wifi and a separate TV room.
Sitting in a pretty cottage garden, its original twinkling charm lives on in the deep-setting of the stone windows and the uneven pales of the picket fence. Inside, the roof beams and fireplace create a cosy ambiance, whilst wooden floorboards and crisp white walls add contemporary chic.
How delightful to climb the steps to your charming house at the edge of the woods, imagining the days when an Austrian grandmother would have raised chickens here. And how delightful to open the door to an elegant contemporary home with a welcoming hearth. An in-resort concierge service ensures that your every request is met, whether it is a parascending experience, stocking up on a particular vintage wine, or booking a table at the best mountain restaurant for lunch.
Sit the kids down for an early supper, before settling them down in front of a movie whilst adults linger over long, sociable dinners. After dinner, pour yourself a drink and spend half an hour watching a ski video in the purpose-built cinema room before retiring for bed.
Tucked up under the rafters in one of the six en-suite bedrooms, a feeling of peaceful calm descends. Chalet Almajur is just a couple of minutes walk from the Nasserein ski lift and from the centre of St. Anton by car.
