A Different World

You go on holiday to get away from it all, right? Well, unless you’re a rock star or zen master, you couldn’t get further away from everyday life than with a stay in one of these unique chalets…

Chalet Rosiere

In a beautiful boutique chalet on the edge of a La Rosiere hamlet, overlooking the Tarentaise valley, you can enjoy a ‘ski yoga deep house detox rave retreat’. Yes you read that right. It’s just one of the uniquely uplifting mountain getaways offered by Chalet Rosière. Owners Alex and Philip Volkers use music, yoga and snowsports to free your mind, re-invigorate your body and energise your soul. Retreats are held year-round. Made In Chelsea’s Emma Walsh had a “wonderful time” on a Full Moon Hike Yoga Retreat last summer, which you can view on her YouTube channel.

GC Kollection

Everything in Chalet Quezac is designed to make you feel like a rock star. The position overlooking the whole of Tignes Les Brevieres and the dam, the outdoor lit-up bar, the one-off artwork, the games room. That’s because it was designed by Tignes’ own celebrity – stuntman, champion rally driver, famous freeskier and all round cool guy Guerlain Chicherit. This place won the title World’s Best New Ski Chalet 2014. Its features are totally unique – like the necklace made from Chicherit’s burnt-out Dakar Rally car hanging round the neck of a giant red penguin on the stairs (!). There’s even a glass bath, one of only two in the world, and the actual motorbike ridden by Vin Diesel in the film Babylon on a stand in the living room.
