If you like your rooms straight off the pages of an interiors magazine, then Chalet Baita 1697 might be right up your strada.
This stunning 17th-century Piedmontese farmhouse has been reconstructed and redesigned as a fabulous luxury ski chalet in Sestriere that demonstrates the very best in natural decor – rustic woods, rough-hewn stone and tactile fur throws, bringing relaxed comfort everywhere you look.
At the heart of this luxury ski chalet is the living area with a spectacular vaulted stone ceiling, roaring fire, statement furniture and super-cosy sofas. There’s also a separate media room (which converts into a bedroom) complete with all you could need for a relaxing afternoon in front of a movie or listening to music.
If you prefer your downtime with a little more fresh air, take a drink out onto the terrace where you can relax in the hot tub with a mountain view.
This luxury ski chalet is just a three-minute walk to cross country pistes, a heli-ski launch pad, as well as a cable car that will take you to the ‘Milky Way’ Olympic piste and not forgetting the chair lift to fabulous downhill slopes where you can virtually ski right to your chalet’s front door. There really is so much to do when you head out from the chalet.
On your return, simply leave your ski boots on heated racks in the ski room and head upstairs where you will be greeted by a delicious afternoon tea, perfect after a day on the slopes.
Truly, this is a luxury ski chalet designed for practicality as well as prettiness.
