When chalet Mathilda was completed in 2005, a new standard of luxury ski vacations was set. Service akin to that of a five star hotel and wellness facilities including an indoor swimming pool and steam room were combined in a brand new, spacious and chic private chalet.
Mathilda commands a place among the very best chalets in Val d'Isère and the Alps by virtue of size, facilities, quality of finish and the style that stands the test of time, combining traditional Alpine style with the clean and crisp influences of today. Chalet Mathilda features not only an indoor swimming pool with jet stream but also a hammam.
On the ground floor is the fabulous wellness area with indoor swimming pool with jet stream and hammam (steam room). There is also a TV room / study / playroom which adds a useful degree of versatility and can even be used for an extra occasional bed.
On the first floor are four bedrooms all with private bathrooms decorated with fine Italian tiles and crisp white porcelain. The bedrooms and living room feature a wealth of beams and panels of old reclaimed wood, which makes them truly unique.
On the second floor, an authentic stone fireplace complements the spacious open plan living room and dining room and a large sun terrace adds to this already impressive area. The panoramic windows make the most of the dazzling alpine scenery. On the top floor is the fifth en-suite bathroom which is delight. Full of character and romance, it sits alone beneath the eaves and feels like staying in an original alpine chalet.
