The highest sophistication is simplicity
Leonardo’s insightful statement perfectly describes the atmosphere of the hotel. The story began when a family decided to explore the world of hotels and develop an alternative in the fast-growing market.
They explain their philosophy:
“Our goal upon entering this luxurious world was to create something new, a bridge between legendary palaces located in major capitals and boutique hotels worldwide. Our hotels have no trends or strategies – what they offer is a lifestyle devoid of pretense. That is our philosophy. More than just a new brand, it represents the birth of a new approach, driven by our own personal values. Le Chalet is the first incarnation of this unique concept.”
Le Chalet Megeve
Without unnecessary ornamentation, the materials used gain new depth, resulting in an exceptional environment. Beauty is found not only in the substance itself but also in the ambiance it creates. The exterior and atmosphere extend into the rooms. Wood comes to life with color, fragrance, and natural texture. The interior design is impressively well-thought-out and captivating at first sight. One might even argue that the interior structure is the main rival to nature because it simply becomes a part of everything.
This hotel is one of those that is its own destination. You wouldn’t want to go anywhere else because it’s the type of hotel that becomes the reason for visiting a particular location. The hotel has 12 suites, each more beautiful than the other. In the basement of the main building, there’s a spa offering various treatments and massages, as well as a sauna, hammam, and aromatherapy. There is also a pool that resembles a cave lake.
The breakfast is truly Alpine. The food is carefully selected from local producers, and the eggs seem as if they were laid by hens that very morning. It is presented very tastefully and full of natural flavors. From cheeses and hams to freshly squeezed juices.
The stay was memorable not only because of the meticulously designed interior but also because of the hotel staff, who are always at your service. They are ready to help and assist at any moment. The director, Emilie Pajević Hervieu, ensures that everything is perfect.
The Zannier Hotel group has several beautiful properties in some of the most stunning locations around the world. Currently, they have six hotels in Africa, Asia, and Europe. I can imagine traveling from Namibia after a safari and enjoying the warm desert sun to Megeve for skiing and experience Asian culture in Cambodia and Vietnam.
Staying in such an environment is an unforgettable experience.
