Perched above Verbier, this is a chalet where the location is matched by the design, and both are stunning in a laid-back kind of way. The views of the mountains are awe-inspiring but, simply framed by floor-to-ceiling windows, they delight again and again, as you pass by throughout the day, almost forgetting they are there.
The interiors of the chalet have also been designed to impress in a low-key way. Rustic stone walls and rich wood floors give the property a classically beautiful backdrop. Top-of-the-range tech, such as Sonos sound system and cinema room, with everything integrated, means that entertainment can all happen at the touch of a button.
The communal spaces here are really sociable, with a huge marble fireplace forming the heart of the property, an ideal spot to curl up with friends, a book or a glass of bubbly. The dining space comfortably seats eight to enjoy the majestic mountain views over a memorable meal prepared by chefs plucked from Europe’s best restaurants. All in all, it’s a very cosy spot indeed. If you weren’t here to enjoy the powder, you’d be forgiven for snuggling up indoors and enjoying the outdoor views from the comfort of your own capacious sofa, under a warm blanket.
The pampering spa area on the lower floor is a fabulous space in which to restore mind and body to full health, with an amazing swimming pool with adjustable floor to accommodate swimmers of all abilities and stunning views of the mountains outside. There’s an indoor Jacuzzi as well as an outdoor hot tub, depending on how the mood takes you, and plenty of space to kick back and relax.
In the evenings, once you’ve eaten well, been waited on hand and foot, and enjoyed your after-dinner drinks out on the south-facing terraces, retire to luxe bedrooms with superbly comfortable beds, soft pillows and duvets and the muffled sounds of the outdoors, covered in snow to see you off to sleep.
