A former monastery transformed into an exclusive luxury chalet with stunning indoor/outdoor pool
Chalet Toit du Monde is a stunning alpine property located in the pretty hamlet of Les Etroits in Val d’Isere. It is one of the only ski in/ski out chalets on a green piste, making it perfect for beginners or families with children.
This former monastery dates from the 17th Century, and has been tastefully converted into a beautiful chalet with luxurious modern comforts. Original features such as the ceiling-height fireplace are complemented by modern ornamental features and state-of-the-art facilities, including a swimming pool, movie screen, and spa.
A hidden indoor/outdoor pool with underwater lighting and an adjustable floor height reveals itself with the touch of a button. It features a Jacuzzi section for relaxing and a wave machine for a more energetic swim.
For the ultimate relaxation, there is a spa therapy room, a sauna built from Russian fir, as well as steam rooms in every en-suite bathroom.
After a sumptuous four-course dinner prepared by the chalet’s chef, guests can retire to the cosy living area with dual-face fireplace, which features a drop-down cinema screen perfect for movie nights. Along with an elegant dining room, there is also a chic cigar room with arguably the best views in the property.
All four bedroom suites have separate sleeping and relaxation areas and boast en-suite facilities and underfloor heating. The marble baths are so spacious they are classified under French building laws as “swimming pools”. The delicately carved glass walls surrounding the bath and shower allow the space to be transformed into a steam room for up to four guests. Each bedroom can be set up with twin or king-size beds and the two split-level suites can sleep an additional guest each, taking the chalet’s capacity up to 10.
For even larger groups, Chalet Toit du Monde can be rented alongside its sister chalet – Chalet Himalaya to create the ‘Domain de Toit du Monde’, accommodating up to 16 guests.
NB: Chalet Toit du Monde is not currently available to book for the 2020/21 ski season due to essential maintenance works.
