Dubbed as the Monaco of the European ski kingdom, Courchevel 1850 is renowned as a hub of opulence and extravagance with an edge of mystery that many mountain travel enthusiasts can’t quite fathom. For those who understand and appreciate the guilty pleasures of 1850, Chalet Pearl should be high on your considerations list. This chalet would be in our “Über-Luxury” category if we had one (perhaps we’ll have to get to work on that) and of course has a price tag to match, ranging from around €70,000 to €140,000 for a week’s stay. That said, we think it’s worth every penny and here’s why: -
The details: Chalet Peal has seven en-suite bedrooms, most of which have balconies with astounding views over the Dent du Villard. The spa area wouldn’t look out of place in a palace – in the chalet managements’ own words “the spa and wellness area would…be impressive in a luxury hotel.” There’s an in-house massage therapist who can of course provide a cocktail menu of soothing and relaxing treatments and you can even have a pre-ski massage to get the legs ready for the day ahead. For those who enjoy indulging in pre-dinner drinks the private bar in the living room is run by an excellent bartender whose cocktail repertoire rivals those in the world’s finest watering-holes. The final detail of note is the home cinema which can seat up to fifteen people for the ultimate movie watching experience.
The service: You’ll have your every whim catered to by true hospitality professionals. There’s a chauffeur service in rather lovely and spacious Mercedes Vianos, which of course have the compulsory plasma television screens. You get a superb private chef who can conjure up pretty much any delicacy imaginable and of course we can help you to tailor the ultimate menu. As usual if you can’t get what you need at the chalet (a situation which we sincerely doubt you’ll find yourself in) then we’ll be on hand to try and make magic happen.
So if you’re finding yourself pining after something really special and think you deserve the best then Courchevel 1850′s Chalet Pearl could be for you.
