Exclusive ski-in ski-out, swim-in swim-out chalet. The magnificent chalet of Himalaya is converted from a 17th Century French Monastery. Chalet accommodates up to 8 people. This historic building in Val d’Isere underwent a 3 year multi million pound renovation which was completed in 2007. Since then it has continued to be lovingly maintained and improved on a year to year basis. Many original features still remain, including the impressive 1.5 meter thick stone walls and fireplace. The sumptuous fur-filled living area centers on the original stone fireplace, the only source of heat in 1682 when the Monastery was built. A hidden Home Cinema system with a giant drop-down HD screen with SKY HD access transforms the living room into your own private movie-theatre or sports arena. Sliding doors with engraved snowflakes on marble open into a chandeliered dining room with hand-carved dining table and chairs, upholstered with luxury designer shearling fur. The dining room extends behind curtains into the James-Bond style red-marble pool, which can be kept secret under solid gray marble slabs or enjoyed as a delicate colourful water feature with the pool exposed and the curtains open. The view is enhanced by the private courtyard with its pretty stone arches which light up at sundown. There are 4 suites in Chalet Himalaya to sleep up to 8 guests. The exquisitely comfortable hand-made hardwood king size (or twin) beds are enhanced with antique carvings which frame the beveled mirror features, artfully concealing discreet reading lamps when not in use. The bath and twin vanities are hand-sculpted from individual slabs of marble, with the spacious bath carved out of a solid 800 kilo piece and flanked by marble walls and glass. Each room also features a fur and leather-covered day bed to lounge on, complete with sunken ice bucket multi-mode sockets. Also included are a mini bar, full length mirror/s, bathrobes, room service trays, fur rugs, shelves and drawer with hanging space, and a generous number of angora throws and cushions. The chalet is equipped with a Sauna made of Russian fir, in addition to the steam-rooms in all the bedrooms. Partly indoor and partly outdoor, the Pool is a ‘James Bond’ feature, the hidden red marble pool with sophisticated underwater lighting is revealed by a secret moving floor device. Pool depth can be adjusted to suit guest’s requirements (ideal for children) Water temperature is maintained at 33 degrees centigrade. The pool includes a wave machine for exercise minded guests and a Jacuzzi facility in the outdoor section of the pool for relaxation. The outdoor section is within a private walled courtyard in Chalet Himalaya with romantically lit arches which were converted from what was the monk’s underground cheese dome of the original monastery. Enjoy an unforgettable experience of ‘swimming under the stars’. The custom-designed glass and marble deep-red cigar room resembles a jewelbox humidor and comes complete with humidifier, extractor, and soft leather sofas offering privacy for guests to savour a smoke with the finest brandies and whiskies. A dedicated ski room provides a boot cupboard with individual boot heaters; and all the ‘little things’ that make a day’s ski perfect – suntan lotion, munchies, ski-map, bottled water, lip balm. Staff on hand to help get those boots off!
