Le Namaste / Courchevel 1850
Living Area: 300 m2
No less a figure than Baroness Thatcher, the UK’s first female leader, once enjoyed Alpine summers at Chalet Le Namaste. Today, this Courchevel luxury chalet maintains its exclusive cachet with an address in Hameau de Cachemire that is one of the most sought after in Europe.
The Bellecote Piste, a beautiful slope suitable for skiers of all abilities, is on the doorstep of this wonderful Ski-in/Ski-out property. This large (300m²) ski chalet is perfectly designed for a family holiday, accommodating 8 adults and 4 children in 3 X double bedrooms, 1 X small double bedroom all with ensuite and/or jacuzzis. Chalet Le Namaste is decorated in a classical Alpine style, making excellent use of the natural materials – stone, wood, fur – of the range, and with traditional, antique-style furniture. A full renovation in 2014 means a really fresh, up-to-date feel to its interiors, including some fine pieces of modern and contemporary art.
The mountain style of the building makes the most of the surroundings, bringing light pouring in through large windows that frame wonderful views of Courchevel’s world-class ski slopes, the village, and the mountains beyond. A south-facing terrace is a highlight of the large open-plan living and dining area, catching the morning sun or the Alpine stars.
The chalet’s spa and wellness facilities live up to its name: Namaste is a Hindi greeting often used in yoga as a way of recognizing the divine in us all. An indoor swimming pool complete with jet system sits under mood lighting. A massage room, Hammam, and sauna add to the recovery and treatment options, while a poolside bar and Moroccan-styled chill-out room complete a holistic relaxation and recovery experience. Chalet Le Namaste has Wi-Fi throughout, supporting a networked entertainment system.
