This magnificent 5* chalet in situated in the heart of Val D'Isere. Newly renovated, the chalet is now one of the most sought after properties in the resort.
Designed by Oliver Thornton Architects of Stockholm, this contemporary chalet oozes elegance and comfort. The building has been created with you in mind, from the heated boot room to the outdoor jacuzzi on the deck.
The upstairs living area is the most spectacular aspect to the building. The glass-walls provide a universal sense of space, allowing for panoramic views of the pistes during the day, before becoming a beacon of light in the mountains at dusk. The main living area is designed for comfort after a hard day's skiing. The furniture is stylish and has been thoughtfully chosen for you to relax in luxury. The chalet also boasts its own bar, with a beer tap, as well as a log fire and flat screen TV and surround-sound system. Sitting in the lounge and watching the world ski past is one of the most enjoyable pastimes at Chalet La Tene. The imposing black run, La Face, provides the atmospheric backdrop to the Dining Room. The beautiful dining table is used for breakfast and dinner, providing an incredible ambience to every dining experience.
Surrounding the living area is an upstairs deck, perfect for soaking up the sunshine and enjoying lunch during the spring. The deck also hosts the 8-person hot tub, which is wonderfully soothing after a long day on the piste. The whole area has its own sound system. Downstairs, the heated boot room leads in to the sauna, hamman and massage area, providing the perfect way to relax and soothe your mind. On the next level there is a magical wine 'cave', to choose the wine to accompany your dinner.
In terms of staff there is a professionally trained chef, two chalet hosts to cook, clean and serve you within the chalet and then a further two staff who take care of the outdoor activities and driving each day, ensuring that you have a table booked in a good restaurant each day and arranging activities on your behalf. Furthermore owners Ben and Heidi are supported by a full time chalet manager to make sure that everything runs smoothly.
