Exclusive Chalet Opens in the French Alps

  • Alexandra Foster

The Hotel de Charme Les Airelles in Courchevel, France, unveils its latest escape from the cold this winter: a nine-bedroom, five-floor private chalet, located less than 20 feet from the Bellecôte slopes. The 3,000-square-foot Chalet Ormello, which officially opened in December, can accommodate up to 15 guests and features a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, cinema with theater-size screen, fitness room, and private Valmont Spa. The chalet underwent a $1.5 million renovation after it was purchased by the hotel last year, and each of the nine bedrooms has been individually decorated with textured- wood accents and rich fabrics. The two master bedrooms each boast fireplaces, and balconies extending from open lounging areas on each floor frame picturesque views of the mountains.

A concierge and private chef are included in the $120,000 weekly rate, as are housekeeping, shuttle service to the ski runs, and all security services. Also available for an added rate are a babysitter and personal trainer. Expansive play areas for children are located on two floors, and two kitchens and dining areas can be utilized when groups wish to separate. (www.airelles.fr)
