Set over three floors, the living space has huge panoramic windows and a warm and cosy ambiance - the perfect place from which to survey the views from the comfort of your armchair.
Further relaxation can be found in the sumptuous wellness area with its tranquil massage room, hammam and sauna. There’s even a power jet plunge pool on the terrace for a post-ski soak. An experienced team will attend to your every need and a private chef will concoct a series of mouth-watering dishes during your stay.
