Proving you are never too old for rock and roll, this traditional-style chalet in a typical ski village has a very young heart in its stylish interior. To say Chalet Rock N’ Love is a little different to your average chalet would be an understatement, and fans of retro style and all things quirky cannot fail to be impressed.
Smile to yourself as you approach the luxury ski chalet in Tignes les Brevieres, knowing no one else would ever guess that inside the traditional exterior, bright, zingy shades contrast with wood-clad walls, Route 66 memorabilia brings the games room to life and fun, retro details such as the American Coca-Cola fridge and 12-inch vinyl records for place mats give every room a talking point.
Chalet Rock N’ Love must be the perfect party chalet, for any group of family or friends. The spacious living area takes in a lounge zone with uber-comfy L-shaped sofa in front of a TV and a stylish dining area. Then there’s a bar with bar stools and a games space with Wurlitzer jukebox, stacked with 100 records to play, a pool table crafted from the shell of a real Mini and even a guitar and amp for any keen strummers – there’s also a drum kit in the kids’ bedroom (which is probably the best place for them to play it!)
Just outside the floor-to-ceiling glass doors is a wonderful outdoor hot tub, so you can take your drink from the bar straight out to the warm bubbles and bracing mountain air – and a private swimming pool means no one is ever short of space to enjoy a long soak here.
Each of the bedrooms is thoughtfully designed in keeping with the retro styling of the rest of the property and with luxury details that make going to bed a pleasure. One of the bedrooms has a mezzanine floor that makes it a great family room, and children will love the amazing ‘garage room’ where they can bunk up in double beds fashioned from retro VWs and Jeeps.
If you feel in need of a little pampering after all that partying, the chalet has a massage room with hydro-jet bed as well as a dedicated gym. With so much on tap in terms of comfort and entertainment, you could happily remain ensconced in this chalet all week. Yet, you are just moments from the ski lifts and the centre of Tignes itself.
Well-connected, achingly stylish, Chalet Rock N’ Love is so rock ‘n’ roll it hurts.
