The design of ski chalets can often be constrained to the surrounding climate. The interiors can be functional – structures for pre-ski preparation and après-ski relaxation – and they can often be lacking in imagination. We have sourced some of the world’s most luxurious chalets, that accomodate your holiday at any time of the year – winter, spring, summer and autumn.
THOUGHTFUL INTERIOR DESIGN
Chalet Le Coquelicot, located in Courchevel 1850, is a highly comfortable mountain retreat suitable for family winter ski holidays and entertaining. Thoughtfully designed by Wilkinson Beven, each room within the 580 sq. metre space has carefully selected finishes and stunning bespoke features. These handcrafted details relate directly to the chalet’s location. With romantic snowy white ensuite bathrooms, a plunging staircase balustrade with ‘frozen-style’ glass spindles, and an art deco style cinema transports you to an original Hollywood studio – glamourous nostalgia.
A HOME WITH A HISTORY
Renovated and designed by Carline Mary, Chalet Ladroit is a unique farmhouse built in 1827 by a nobleman from Chambery who wanted a mountain retreat for occasional visits.
The rooms have high ceilings and are filled with light to enjoy incredible views over the valley to La Tournette.
It is a space designed to be a complete and utter personal haven – providing a very homely atmosphere, with big sofas, luxe throws, stone walls and wooden furniture to mimic all things traditional chalet-style.
Best of all, after a long day skiing and activities you can retreat home to a Turkish style hammam, sauna, a pool with in-built waterfalls, and outdoor jacuzzi.
THE LARGE LARGE LODGE
The Lodge: Sir Richard Branson’s very own private ski chalet located in the Swiss alps. Costing around £4m, the home is an impressive 900 square metres with nine bedrooms.
Designed by the renowned Laughland Jones luxury interior design company, the team created an outstanding architectural interior with bespoke details to fit.
SOULFUL SKI CHALETS
Renowned and award winning interior designer Nicky Dobree works on chalets across the Swiss and the French Alps. She has long been credited with establishing a new trend for Alpine luxury. Clients come to Nicky to create chalets that are comfortable, elegant and timeless homes which do not lose touch with where they are.
THE WHOLE PACKAGE
There are stunning views of the Aravis mountains and valley from the south-facing balcony and large terrace, which has a bar and dining area. It’s just a short drive to Manigod where you can pick up fresh bread and croissants or perhaps a takeaway meal from the Auberge du Sulens restaurant. The peaceful location of Onze Chalet is the perfect antidote to the usual hustle and bustle of the bigger ski resorts, and in the summer, it’s the perfect place to discover the flora and fauna of the Alps.
