The 20 World’s Very Best Exclusive Hire Chalets – Part 2
Published on 19/11/2017 by Finest Holidays - Luxury Travel
11 – New: Chalet Sagarmata, Verbier
Some Alpine chalets match a traditional exterior with a similarly styled interior. Not Chalet Sagarmata, which is a refreshing blast of ultra-modern, clean, white minimalism. Don’t think it’s not super luxurious or fantastically comfortable though; Sagarmata’s world-beating siting in Verbier is matched by the superb facilities – including a major-league spa – available to its 13 lucky visitors.
Ski-in/Ski-out access is a great start to those in the know, and St. Anton’s reputation as one of the world’s best apres- resorts is also a big plus point for this one-of-a-kind apartment. Classic interiors offer gentleman’s club-style elegance, while a Champagne bar, cinema room and terrace hot tub show that party fans can also enjoy their time in this 12-bed property – after a sauna and workout has refreshed you from the slopes.
This eight-(rising to 12)-berth chalet is a perfect family retreat in the quietest of the Courchevel resorts. Light, bright and cheerful in its design approach – with some striking modern art pieces – Chalet Le R is a place of great tranquillity, but also of great warmth. There is luxury and beauty – from the private pool to superb mountain views – everywhere you look in Chalet R.
Another monster property – nine suites – that doesn’t compromise luxury for size, this 6-star chalet is surrounded by some of the most wonderful mountain scenery on the planet and sits at an altitude of 1,660 m. Taking the idea of a mountain castle – a Schlössle – as the perfect mountain retreat, Chalet N brings it up to date with perfect design and the latest technology. This place really needs to be seen to be believed.
You can easily picture James Bond – or perhaps a Bond villain – using Chalet uberHaus as his mountain retreat. Traditional materials and contemporary design combine perfectly in this elegant property. It has all the bases covered – vehicle access, ski-in/ski-out, snooker, bar, library, cinema, steam rooms… – for an Alpine break that you won’t want to end.
Zermatt Peak lives up to its name with a 2013 award from Premium Switzerland as the best Ultra-Luxe chalet in Switzerland, a country that knows a little about fine living. The location alone – looking over the Matterhorn – deserves plaudits, but Zermatt Peak makes the perfect even better with astounding design, the ultimate in materials, and the latest entertainment technology. The security precautions match the calibre of guest this wonderful property is aimed at.
With just four bedrooms, this sophisticated jewel in Zermatt’s crown is perfectly suited to a family skiing break in Switzerland’s top resort. Small parties and families have plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the eye-catching design, sumptuous linens and luxury bathroom products on tap after enjoying the steam and treatment rooms at the centre of this super-chic apartment.
Is Verbier the coolest Alpine resort? Its boarding, extreme-skiing, and clubbing crowd would certainly love the edge Pop Art design in Chalet 1936. With five floors to enjoy there’s lots of room for the nine adults and four children who can stay in 1936. Antique wood blends in with bright Op-Art fabrics and eclectic design. It looks amazing, but it’s not all for show in a property that really delivers on comfort, service and facilities for an unforgettable ski experience.
Breath-taking is the right description for this duplex apartment with its six big, beautiful bedrooms. The skiing experience of some of the world’s best slopes comes right up to the doorway in the right conditions and Matterhorn views are the archetypal Zermatt vista. Space, space, space is the feeling in the main living floor, but there is room for intimacy and cosiness too with wonderful spa facilities and the latest in tech entertainment.
Black Pearls are rare, but Chalet Black Pearl is genuinely unique. This three-story gem goes beyond the wow factor courtesy of owner/designer Philippe Capezzone – a French Alpine legend. He’s mixed up a heady cocktail of traditional Savoyard virtues accented with the very latest in high-tech facilities, and topped off with a world-class swimming and spa facility.
