A top-level ski destinatiThe Chalet Tovet in Courchevel 1850on for nearly a century, Courchevel fits perfectly into its natural environment. Nestled in the rugged terrain of the Tarentaise valley in the French Alps, the town boasts among its five ski stations the famous Courchevel 1850.
Here is situated Chalet Tovet, a spacious wood-built residence within easy reach of the pistes, whose snow-ledged windows offer heavenly views.
Haven of peace
An enchanting scene of chocolate-coloured wood chalets under their snow-covered roofs can be savoured from the finely crafted balconies of Chalet Tovet. The 50 square-metre terrace is an ideal starting point – either on foot or with skis already fixed – for four different ski routes of varying levels through a stunning landscape of snowbound peaks.
Within its 580 square-metre living space, Chalet Tovet creates its own impression of the magical views framed in its generously proportioned windows, with silk, velvet and polished wood evoking the opalescent snowy mantle covering the world outside.
These furnishings create a soft yet sparkling light throughout the shared space of the well-appointed kitchen, snug fireside sitting room and spacious dining room.
To top it all off, the Chalet Tovet’s lower level houses an indoor spa, with swimming pool, Jacuzzi and Turkish bath.
Harmonious shades ranging from snow-white, shimmering raw silk to muted grey furs are the theme of the master bedroom, which has an en-suite bathroom and private balcony. The five other double bedrooms display an equally wide range of natural hues, inspired by the snowscapes seen through the windows and given a brighter, livelier touch by contemporary paintings.
Each of these bedrooms also has an en-suite bathroom.
Renowned Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti once said: “Space does not exist – one must create it”.
This philosophy comes naturally at Chalet Tovet, where a fine balance of artistic form and practical function combines the highest level of modern comfort with elegant design, in the midst of a natural winter paradise.
Available from 5 600 Euros per night.
