Chalet Face à Face for ‘World’s Best New Chalet 2021’

Last year, our formidable Chalet Marmottiere in Verbier won ‘World’s Best New Ski Chalet’, and this year we have the simply stunning Chalet Face à Face in Val d’Isère as our undeniably deserving finalist. A sensational blend of traditional, alpine-inspired architecture and stunning interior design, plus it’s enviable ski-in, ski-out location and jaw dropping views make this home a true competitor. Need we mention the gorgeous spa and massive outdoor hot tub?

Chalet Marmottière for ‘Switzerland’s Best New Chalet’

Haute Montagne’s Chalet Marmottière is back once again and this time for the more niche accolade of ‘Switzerland’s Best New Ski Chalet 2021’ (since winning World’s Best New Chalet in 2020). This dramatic luxury chalet in Verbier is as impressive by day as it is by night; a sparkling gem set on the hillside in an exclusive neighbourhood. Soaked in gorgeous Winter sunlight in the day through the astonishingly large windows throughout, and alit with impeccable lighting design at night. Natural materials and bespoke design are married to create this show-stopping chalet, complete with endless entertainment in the form of a massive pool and spa area, bowling alley and 3D cinema; a total of 1500sq metres of space to lose yourself in luxury.

Chalet Alpaca for ‘Best Ski Chalet in France’

We also have finalists in the ‘France’s Best Ski Chalet 2021’ & ‘Austria’s Best Ski Chalet 2021’. The former, Chalet Alpaca, is situated in the gorgeous resort of Méribel, and winner of the ‘World’s Best Ski Chalet’ category when it was newly completed in 2017, this property remains a timeless classic. Meticulous design is reflected in features such as the copper bath, ‘endless’ pool and fireplaces which do anything but blend into the background. A cinema room, bar, games area and indoor climbing walls really set it apart.

Villa Villekulla for ‘Best Ski Chalet in Austria’

Our Austrian entry is Villa Villekulla – a striking ski-in chalet in St. Anton, ideally positioned meters from the slope and some of it’s finest restaurants. A picture-perfect, open plan gathering space carefully designed for ultimate relaxation and socialisation occupies the first floor, and is bordered by a terrace and south-facing balcony allowing guests to maximise the sunshine hours. Exuding modernity and with smart, minimalistic yet high-end design, this is a mountain fanatic’s dream location to bask in the zen of the surrounding landscape.
