Who says luxury and eco-consciousness have to be mutually exclusive? Our Eco-Luxe Collection offers the best of both worlds, showcasing an impressive array of eco-credentials as well as five-star facilities and service.
The recent surge in demand for eco-friendly and sustainable tourism has not been missed by the ski industry who have placed increasing emphasis on ethical, environmentally friendly and self-sufficient chalets, whilst retaining all the elements needed for a luxury ski experience.
ECO LODGE, Chamonix
As its name suggests, Eco Lodge has been built with green technology and is fully self-sufficient and able to fully power itself with its advanced renewable energy systems. Located in the prestigious hamlet of Les Nants, just 1 km from Chamonix, the chalet offers spectacular views of the valley, a modern living space and five en-suite bedrooms. Enjoy an indulgent soak in the Jacuzzi on the terrace or unwind in the wood-fired sauna whilst admiring views of Mont Blanc and Le Dru.
CHALET ROCK, Verbier
Hidden away in a quiet corner of Verbier, Chalet Rock is a newly built stone-and-timber chalet offering uninterrupted views of the Mont Blanc massif from expansive terraces. Warm and cosy, this alpine retreat has been lovingly designed in a modern contemporary style and has superb facilities including an outdoor hot tub, cinema room and games room with consoles and pool table. Thanks to its state-of-the-art wood pellet and solar-powered heating and ventilation systems you can enjoy this mountain bolthole guilt-free.
CHALET ROSIERE, La Rosière
Located on the edge of a stunning rural hamlet on the outskirts of La Rosière, Chalet Rosière aims to become the first off-grid boutique chalet in the resort within five years, and they have made a good start – the chalet already uses composting, permaculture, carbon sequestration and renewable energy to reduce its carbon footprint. This sustainable sanctuary of eco-luxury also offers a vegan menu as part of its Wellbeing Ski Experience. The luxury side of things isn’t forgotten about either, with an outdoor spa on the terrace complete with mountain-view Jacuzzi as well as a treatment room and meditation tepee.
CHALET GEMINI, Zermatt
Tucked against a hillside, with incredible views, Chalet Gemini has a superb location only 200 metres from the Matterhorn Express lift station. Tastefully decorated, the interior blends liberal use of natural wood and stone with more modern features including a rotating fireplace, sauna and outdoor hot tub. In order to reduce its carbon footprint as much as possible the chalet is equipped with geothermal heating providing underfloor heating and hot water in an environmentally-friendly way.
CHALET DALMORE, Chamonix
Considered to be the most contemporary and striking chalet available to rent in Chamonix, Chalet Dalmore enjoys a spectacular setting surrounded by forest and mountains. Self-sufficient in terms of electricity and energy supply, the chalet is powered by turbines from the neighbouring river L’Arve. Natural materials are reflected in the design and geothermal underfloor heating is used to create the ultimate cosy retreat. Luxury features include a covered roof-terrace offering amazing views of Mont Blanc, a ‘whisky snug’, 10 metre outdoor pool, hot tub and sauna as well as a massage area to ease those aching muscles after tackling the slopes.
CHALET SPA, Verbier
Tucked away down a private path, yet just a short walk from the Savoleyres lift station, Chalet Spa offers a prime yet secluded position in Verbier. Blending locally sourced materials such as timbers and stones with contemporary features, the chalet is a masterpiece of luxury. However the design also places emphasis on conserving energy and enhancing efficiency throughout the chalet. For example, the heating is adjustable by zone thereby minimising wastage and an air quality management system extends throughout the chalet and spa.
