Description

Exclusive ski-in ski-out, swim-in swim-out chalet.

The magnificent chalet of Toit du Monde (Top of the World) 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.

An impressive set of hammered iron ancient doors leads into a comfortable living room generously decorated with furs and touches of East and West all elements referencing mountain history. On one wall, a chain motif favoured by the ancient Royal family of Savoie is carved in light relief on marble while from the other side of the world, intricately painted antique Tibetan doors are integrated into the scene. 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.

Folding doors with exquisite engraved marble panels open into a chandeliered dining room with hand-carved dining table and chairs, upholstered with luxury designer shearling fur. The dining room can be curtained off from the James-Bond style red-marble pool which is kept out-of-sight underfloor. With the curtains open, the view of the slopes in daylight is enticing and at night, simply magical. The pool can convert into a softly lit water feature, over which starry lights twinkle and reflect in the water, while stars do their bit in the sky outside over the shimmering snow.

There are four suites in Chalet Toit du Monde to sleep up to 8 guests. There is also the option to welcome additional guests upon request in the Grand Suites. 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. 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.

The chalet is equipped with a Sauna made of Russian fir, in addition to the steam-rooms in all the bedrooms. Relax your muscles in the sauna then step next door into a world of tranquility for your spa treatment. A wall of natural candles create a hypnotic glow in the room which is cocooned in a rich covering of gold metal and marble dust-infused paint.

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 Cigar Room made of glass and red marble is furnished with deep-red leather and walls to resemble a jewelbox humidor. Sink into the soft seats and ask your host to light up your cigar and offer you a choice of drinks. The room comes complete with humidifier, extractor, and arguably the best seats in the house with undisturbed views of the mountains. Nothing between you and nature except glass to keep you warm.

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!
