As you drive down the private road towards the Hidden Dragon its secluded setting and rustic charm could persuade you that it is a traditional luxury alpine chalet.
Step through the door, however, and you will soon realise that this stunning, inspirational chalet is anything but conventional. Within its walls, ancient feng shui principles fuse harmoniously with contemporary design and rare antiques to create a truly unique ambience.
Alongside the modern elegance and Eastern promise reverberates a cosy, casual vibe that encourages guests to relax and feel completely at home.
There are numerous communal areas that are perfect for spending special times with family and friends. The living room, for example, is fitted with a bespoke copper fireplace that adds warmth and atmosphere to any gathering, while the chic Hidden Dragon dining room offers a beautiful setting for evening meals.
And after a day on the slopes, Hidden Dragon’s ski-in/ski-out “Gents-Club” style ski-room, furnished with vintage leather chairs and a well-stocked après-ski bar, is sure to be a welcome pit stop.
Don’t linger too long, though, or you will have no time to pamper yourself with a visit to the chalet’s outdoor hot tub, hammam or sauna, or to let a masseur or beautician soothe your aching limbs or preen you to perfection.
For those in search of a bit of me time, the uninterrupted views over the Rhone Valley provide a beautiful backdrop to the Jardin d’hiver.
Alternatively, why not curl up with a good book in the glass mezzanine library that overlooks the living room, or marvel at the stars from the hot tub after dark?
Film buffs meanwhile, there is a private cinema room to spend leisurely afternoons in.
