Built in the heart of the Val d'Isère upscale resort, this ski-in/ski-out chalet is a former 17th century monastery. The thick walled four-story 350 sq m hideout is luxurious without ostentation. "Comfort and well-being are everywhere, says the John Taylor agency, with a premium on intimacy." Built around a majestic fireplace, the vast living room borders an outstanding indoor/outdoor marble-paved swimming pool. Four very spacious bedrooms with a mezzanine round up the level. Each room comes with a shower room-hammam-jacuzzi, with multicoloured lightning and a fireplace. The living room also serves as a dining room, with Grand Cru meals prepared by the in-house chef. Other amenities include a cigar cellar, a movie theatre, a sauna, a private garage and two additional maid's bedrooms. In walk-in condition, this luxury estate is a must-see.
