Ski-in/Ski-out Contemporary Masterpiece in Courchevel 1850
The Art Chalet – Courchevel 1850
Nestled within a gated location beside the scenic Bellecôte piste, Chalet Art showcases 2212m2 of breathtaking architecture blended with creative, artistic delights. A regular haunt of Royalty, Hollywood, Fashionistas, and Russian Elite, one can quickly appreciate the allure of a chalet so-generously adorned with artworks from Picasso and Warhol, among other artists of note.
If the picturesque piste-side location isn’t a bounty unto itself; the private cinema, in-chalet dance floor, sumptuous spa and waterfall swimming pool are further treasures to behold. Whether avid skier, ebullient partygoer or merely one seeking gentler repose, guests of every disposition can satisfy their deepest desires in a chalet that many deem – “The Best in the Alpine Region.”
A Seven-floor Haven Offers Ample Abodes
One could be forgiven for thinking you have reached seventh-heaven in Chalet Art, such is the opulence of its stately design. As up-to sixteen guests choose from eight en-suite bedrooms: two of which are mercurial 60+m2 master suites with views that stretch the length of the valley or over evergreen Alpine firs.
For traveling families, a connected suite adjoins a quaint double bedroom to a delightful children’s room, brimming with bunk beds. Couple such fanciful facilities with a flat-screen TV in every bedroom and Wi-Fi throughout the chalet, one could dreamily doze through a slower morning, post-salacious evening of in-house revelry.
The chalet staff has their own sequestered quarters, alongside a private entrance, but they remain on call 24-7 to deliver spellbinding cuisine in equally mesmeric surrounds. Where exceptional amenities bend the mind, incredible gastronomy will certainly stretch belt buckles.
Expect copious champagne and canapés to flow on arrival, followed by magnificent banquets any Michelin chef would be proud to present; locally-sourced ingredients are sure to accommodate even the most discerning of palates. Guests choose their level of catering – from full-service through to lighter breakfasts and evening mealtimes – Chalet Art caters to every whim.
As meals wind down, but evenings ramp up; now is the time to switch from the vintage wines of the immaculately-selected cellar to the resident mixologist’s superb cocktails – served over ice from one of several impressive bars.Read More
Endless Delights in the World’s Most Glamorous Resort
Set amidst the floating rafters of the enchanting Chalet Art is the ‘Living Space’ – or rather, an extravagant living room, professionally-stocked bar, and alluring dining space. In one corner sits the grand Piano Pleyel of Hilton McConnico design. Then, at the center of affairs, roars the open-sided fireplace that breathes warmth throughout, rounding off an authentic mountain-top ambiance complemented by stretching panoramas – relish the Courchevel valley, the Portteta Breche, and Bellecôte Glacier as they unfold across inconceivable landscapes.
Should children become restless, a dedicated playroom offers infinite amusement with state-of-the-art gadgets and toys to engage even the most curious of minds; a pool table and games consoles for older kids; or, the Hollywood-esque cinema room for family evenings in.
For the not-so-young: an exclusive nightclub awaits with a cutting-edge sound system and decks, a casino for late-night shenanigans, then a chic glass elevator to ferry you to your peaceful abode as long days on manicured pistes, finally take their toll.
Chalet Art is aptly named for its galleries of distinguished works: Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Georges Mathieu, Hans Hartung, Jean Miotte, AndyWarhol, Joan Miró – few would believe one space could house so many revered pieces.
A veritable feast for the eyes at every turn, leaving guests brimming with energy given the inspiration on-show. Yet, the skiing will take its toll. Hence, the five-star spa replete with steam room, sauna, jacuzzi, relaxation room, fitness lounge, and massage space. All surrounding the lavish swimming pool with its four flat-screen televisions within view; could one hope for a better sanctuary once weariness sets in? Perhaps not.
Though, rest assured: immediate access onto the Bellecôte piste is ample motivation for another day on the slopes – even with the infinite temptation that lies within the magnificent Chalet Art.
