Chalet Himalaya is a unique haven in ski heaven. An old soul married sensitively to the most luxurious modern comforts imaginable, Himalaya is a former monastery, dating from the 17th century. Situated on the piste it is a landmark building of the charming un-spoilt hameau of La Daille in Val d’ Isere.
Entering Chalet Himalaya, a pair of majestic carved antique doors greets the visitor in a white marble and stone hall. These open onto a stylistic paradise where light and dark marble mix with carved and painted wood, glass and stone contrast with abundant furs and antique pieces, to create a seductive ambience which is both impressive and warm.
Original features such as the massive fireplace and the stunning window stone seats (where monks would have sat and read until daylight faded) are enhanced by modern ornamental features and state of the art facilities. There is the movie screen which appears at the touch of a button. Then there is the invisible swimming pool which can pop up between the dining area and the cigar room, where guests can relax after sampling the delights prepared by their chef.
All bedroom suites have under floor heating with independent controls, and include separate sleeping and relaxation areas. The exquisitely comfortable hand-made hardwood king size (or twin) beds are enhanced with antique carvings which frame the bevelled mirror features, artfully concealing discreet reading lamps when not in use.
The marble walls of the bath are adorned with delicately engraved snowflakes, while the floor of each bath is subtly heated. The bath, of such impressive proportions that it is classified under French building rules as a ‘swimming pool’, also commands a rain shower and converts into a steam room - easily seating up to 4 or more persons, with remote-controlled lights.
In addition, each room also features a fur or leather-covered day bed to lounge on, complete with sunken ice bucket multi-mode sockets. A stone-surround metal fireplace with real flames that can be modulated by remote control adds to the ambience in each room.
Prices are based on exclusive use of the chalet to include full gourmet catering, open bar and in resort chauffeur service. No travel included.
