Description

Imagine you are lost in a snowstorm on an icy mountain path. The flurry clears for a moment, and the glowing windows of a rugged stone house light up the darkness. Step into the warmth and feel the intoxication of Chalet Himalaya in all its opulence.

Originally a 17th century monastery, this luxury ski chalet has kept some wonderful original features, such as craggy rock walls, and a huge stone fireplace. Set deep into the stone walls are timeworn window seats where monks would have sat to read. But this is no museum piece. Chalet Himalaya may be a historic character, but it has been equipped with every modern comfort.

There are decadent touches, such as the cinema screen that appears at the touch of a button, and the enchanting pool connecting the indoors with the outdoors. Each bedroom at Chalet Himalaya is a full size suite, draped in rich fabrics and fur rugs, with its own enormous and unique spa bathing area.

Perched at the side of the piste, looking down past a tumble of wooden barns to Val d’Isère, this luxury ski chalet offers fabulous ski-in/ski-out access onto a green piste, so that everyone can be out enjoying the snow in no time. From breakfast in bed, to the gourmet cuisine served in the evenings, guests are cosseted and pampered by Chalet Himalaya’s team of attentive staff.

A chauffeured vehicle is on hand to take you around resort and anything from in-house spa treatments and massages to babysitting or professional hairstyling is available. Chalet Himalaya has been transformed from a spiritual retreat to a temple of sensuality. There is a sauna, massage room and indoor/outdoor pool, and the bathrooms are stocked with luxury toiletries.

When dinner is over, select a sweet-smelling Montecristo from the cool haven of the cigar room, and push open the ancient wooden door of the wine store to choose a vintage Port. Who knew that such an evocative ski chalet existed?

Eating

Although Chalet Himalaya has a beautiful, fully equipped kitchen, you don’t need to go in it at all. A private chef creates gourmet meals using fresh, locally sourced produce, to keep your taste buds tingling. With staff to do everything from setting the table to clearing up afterwards, all you have to do is relax and enjoy.

Every morning starts with tea and coffee served in bed, plus breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner. The chef has two nights off a week, giving you the opportunity to sample Val d’Isère’s excellent restaurants.

On five evenings, your dining experience will start with champagne and canapés to whet your appetite. Then take your place at the handmade dining and enjoy the 4 course meal to follow, all accompanied by carefully selected wines.

If that isn’t enough, guests can also choose from the 24 hour menu (charged additionally).

The complimentary house wines and champagne at Chalet Himalaya are specially selected to suit discerning palates, and there is also a free spirits, wine and soft drinks bar. If you hanker after something really special, just take a look at the à la carte wine menu, featuring vintage champagnes and wines at an extra cost.

Kids

There is endless excitement for children at Chalet Himalaya. Exploring the nooks and crannies of the old stone monastery with its magical pool and glass-encased bathrooms is just the start of the adventure. There’s also a huge drop down HD screen with Sky access means they can watch their favourite shows while you relax, and maybe watch your own and there are plenty of sledges, for snowy outdoor fun.

All manner of activities can be arranged by your concierge, from private ski lessons to husky sled rides and igloo experiences. Little ones can play in the snow around the chalet, and the chauffeured car is ready if you want to take them out and about in Val d’Isere.

Whatever your children need to keep them happy, just let us know. English speaking nannies can be arranged for daily in-chalet childcare, or for just a night of babysitting while you have some grown-ups time out and your private chef will be happy to prepare an early children’s supper at a time that suits them.
