Winter: a time for alpine adventures. And where better to stay that Savoie 42, an apartment situated right at the heart of skiing society, with stunning views of the mountains, cosy contemporary luxury and most importantly, high-tech security.
You’ve just arrived in the snow-swept hamlet of Val d’Isère with your closest friends, an annual pilgrimage that has always been at the peak of your social calendar. But, this year is special: you’ve booked Apartment Savoie 42, a burnished wood paradise situated in the centre of this alpine wonderland, a vestibule of high-flying pleasure by day and flame-licked fun at night.
You are immediately drawn to the balcony upon entering the fourth-floor apartment, its panoramic views of the Manchet valley beckoning you to the slopes that you’ve been longing to tread since your last visit, but something is fixing you to the spot. You soon discover the culprit: the apartment is a textured Eden, its wooden interior offset with panelled glass, crystal lights and faux-fur accessories which call to your personal style stamp. The icy tones contrast glowingly with the crackling heat of the fireplace, and in this sugar-dusted residence, you feel a karmic buzz.
The bedrooms are havens to you all, the individualistic artwork making the decision for who should sleep where. You are picked by the portrait of a woman splashed with colour, the snug warmth a home-away-from home. After sleeping off your journey over a glass of champagne, you wake to winter sun and the sound of your companions pulling on their ski-gear. You lock the apartment with your digital key-card and make for the mountains, their peaks even more breath-taking than you remember. The glittered air reflects the magic of the Val d’Isère region, and as you rip down the virgin snow, you know you’ve never felt more alive.
At lunch, you return to the apartment complex and marvel at the foyer furnished with the same blend of impasto luxury that Savoie 42 boasts. Locking away your skis, you head for well-deserved replenishment, flushed with adrenaline, and get chatting to another group of fun-loving skiers who invite you to a party they’re hosting at a nearby bar that night.
Later, the four of you bask in your first-day memories in the open-plan kitchen, candles lit, savouring traditional French cuisine. You contemplate going out for those drinks – definitely tempting – but you find yourself drawn to the noble materials and sophisticated ambience that Savoie 42 supplies. It’s a luxury none of you can bring yourself to leave, and with aching thighs and high spirits, you chat long into the night, glad to be together, at this exact time, in this exact place: Savoie 42.
