Chalet Everest

Amazing and very rare 1682 old monastery, totally renewed into a comfortable chalet, ski-in/ski-out access, 4 superb suites, amazing indoor/outdoor swimming pool, private chef, wine cellar, sauna, jacuzzi

In summary

Chalet Everest is a perfect haven located in ski heaven. Everest is a former monastery dating from the 17th century. This iconic building has been sensitively updated with the most luxurious modern comforts imaginable. Situated on the piste, a perfect ski-in/ski-out location, it is a landmark building in the hameau of La Daille in Val d'Isère.
For larger families or corporate groups, the neighbouring Fleur de Lys can be booked giving a super chalet for up to 16 guests.


Bedrooms

This luxury chalet sleeps 8 guests in the four bedroom suites each of which have separate sleeping and relaxation areas. The marble walls of the bath are decorated with engraved snowflakes, while the floor of each bath is gently heated. The bath is of such size, that each commands a rain shower and can convert into a steam room, with remote-controlled lights.

Suite Castenz:
Named after the Castenz Pyramid in Indonesia (which is the highest summit in Australia/Oceania) this suite is decorated in rich tones of green and gold, with a touch of Islamic culture.

Suite Kosciusko:
Sunny hues reflecting the colours of Australia mix with earthy cast iron and aboriginal craftwork in Suite Koscisuko. Mount Kosciusko standing at 2,228 metres above sea-level is in fact less than half as high as the Castenz Pyramid, but vies favourably with Castenz in the official list of Seven Summits as Australia is indisputably a continent, whereas Oceania is strictly speaking, not one.

Grand Suite Everest:
Highest of all the Seven Summits is Mount Everest in Asia. In this Grand Suite, on display are hand-woven ethnic tapestries and specially commissioned mandalas. The result is an exotic explosion of colours, which pays homage to Tibetan culture.

Grand Suite Denali:
Denali, also known as Mount McKinley, is in Alaska, where night sky viewing under the Northern Lights is a compelling and unforgettable experience. This Grand Suite draws inspiration from the stark breathtaking beauty of the dramatic Alaska night sky and landscape.

In addition to the Sauna in each chalet, every bedroom suite is equipped with its own steam-room and cooling rain-shower.


Indoors  & Outdoors​ 

The original features such as the impressive fireplace and the window stone seats are enhanced by modern features and state of the art facilities such as 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 you can relax after sampling the gourmet meals prepared by your private chef.

This chalet is approached through a beautiful dual level stone courtyard, with underfloor-heated walkways paved with marble.

An underground domed cubby hole which could have been the monks’ cheese pantry has given way to modernity. It is now remembered only by its curved dome features which have been replicated in approximately the same position and hover invitingly in the entrance courtyard over the part-indoor and part-outdoor swimming pool.

All around the pool and the courtyard, original handmade rustic railings imported from the Steppes of Asia in Mongolia have been tastefully installed and adorn the sun-trapping terraces.

Entering Chalet Everest, a pair of majestic carved antique doors greet 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 ambiance which is both impressive and warm.

Original features such as the massive fireplace and the cute window stone seats (where monks would have sat and read till 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 Steinway piano and the cigar room where guests can relax after a meal in the elegant dining room. 4 of the 5 fireplaces in this chalet are remote-controlled, and add to standard comforts such as the sauna and hammams, there are more sophisticated gadgets which await to titillate the senses of the experienced traveller.

Dining in the two chalets is an important part of a holiday and it is not only the chefs who are carefully selected to ensure guests dine and wine in perfect harmony.
Above the dining tables, chandeliers of coloured glass complement a stylish mix of antique mirrors and candelabras. The specially commissioned black and gold dining tables are accompanied by ornate hand-made chairs, each covered with individually patterned shearling fur.
The dining rooms of the two chalets can be interconnected for banquets serving up to 40 persons, and for special gastronomic events presented by visiting celebrity chefs invited by the owners and Anton Mosimann.

Both chalets offer warm relaxing fires by which to enjoy anything from a goblet of traditional mulled wine to the most exotic cocktail. The modern designer glass fireplace in Chalet Fleur de Lys on the other hand stands tall and significant between the hall and the living room while the completely see-through effect of the dual glass faces allow the flickering flames to provide entertainment on both sides. Leather and furs combine to provide comfortable seating all around the living rooms, with games and books available to cater for a variety of interests.

Settle into the cozy marble and glass cigar rooms, each with built-in humidor and banquette seating to savour a cigar or a cognac, or music or all three. The warm red colours of the marble are enriched by inviting thick fur cushions, which guests can sink lazily into to light up in peace, without disturbance from or to other guests.

From the welness area, enjoy the views of the mountains from within. Sit on antique armchairs among colourful Tibetan mountain rugs and indulge in afternoon tea après ski or a big English breakfast before skiing. Book a group ‘foot-massage’ session, to add to the après ski experience – and enjoy total relaxation as the sun sets outside.

A real Russian sauna in each chalet, made with imported authentic Siberian pine, can warm your muscles up quickly after a day’s exercise on the pistes.

The state-of-the-art swimming pool in each chalet offers you a real-life James Bond experience. The pools are finished in red marble and disappear at the touch of a button under a grey marble floor. The underwater colours change to suit your mood and the depth of the pools can be varied to suit different swimming abilities and purposes. Both pools have Jacuzzis and wave-machines and with an indoor and an outdoor section, guests can choose to bask in hot water under the stars, while snow gently falls caressing faces, bare shoulders and melting in champagne.

The skirooms of the chalets both have direct access to outside. The skirooms are fully equipped with electric boot-warmers, blow heaters and ski-racks.

Location

Indeed, the chalet enjoys, indisputably, the best possible location in any ski resort, as the La Daille slope is woody, rolling and the most scenic ‘category green’ slope in Val d’Is`re. (‘green’ – categorised as easy for all intermediate skiers and accessible with caution for beginners). Safe at the start of the day, and as well, easy on tired legs at the end of the day, this slope allows a direct beeline on skis from either chalet to a choice of 3 lifts - the fast funicular train to ski heaven, the bubble cars with direct access to the famous Folies Douce restaurant halfway up the mountaintop and an open chair lift which sails almost over the chalet. Close by, there is also a nursery slope with drag lift for novices.
A home run on skis will land you straight into the chalet's own swimming pool.
