MONTAGNE ALTERNATIVE MUST BE one of the best kept secrets in the Alps. High on a hillside just 20 minutes from Verbier, this cool and contemporary chalet den is the epitome of Alpine chic.
A trio of beautifully restored wood and stone barns – rustic on the outside but dripping with designer cool inside – Montagne Alternative is a chic Swiss hideaway created by Belgian owner Ludovic Orts. Chunky weathered beams and ancient stone complement the clean, modern lines.
Ski bunnies and walkers – not to mention anyone who simply wants to recharge their batteries in the crisp Alpine air – will adore this luxurious and secluded mountain eyrie, set amid stunning scenery in a hamlet high in the Alps. Awesome all-round views are matched by A+ comforts.
Ideal for groups of friends staying together, Montagne Alternative is also tailor-made for couples looking for a luxury retreat that’s within easy reach of ski slopes, walking trails and some of the region’s top thermal spa resorts.
Powder hounds can make the 20-minute hop to the ski mecca of Verbier, go snowshoeing or simply curl up by an open log fire as the snow falls on the village rooftops. There’s a hammam to steam away aching muscles after a day in the great outdoors.
Comfort, space and style
Montagne Alternative is designed for utmost comfort. Elegantly minimalist bedrooms sport bright throws, crisp cotton bedding, natural fabrics and fresh flowers, while bathrooms are a cool collection of sleek chrome and dark slate, stocked with own-brand toiletries scented with Tibetan roseroot.
Vintage designer chairs are counterpointed with cool modern furnishings and locally made wool drapes. Gaze out of the huge windows showcasing stunning views of Mont Blanc and you could be looking at a postcard.
Everything is designed to feel ‘comme à la maison’, and guests can choose whether to be largely self catering or have everything freshly cooked and prepared daily by the chef. A mini-bar is stocked with local produce, including honey made by one of the villagers.
Guests can book bedrooms hotel-style in the three chalets or rent them for exclusive use. Six Blanc (three bedrooms) has stunning views of its namesake Mont Blanc and a private hammam steam room. Barbey (five rooms) has a sunny south facing terrace, while Le Rogneux (four rooms) looks out across the Val d’Entremont, with an open fireplace to curl up by with that glass of local vino as the sun sets.
Montagne Alternative’s friendly and professional team are on hand to cosset guests, and concierge-style service means that outings and an array of activities are easily arranged. With a cook waiting to drum up local specialities or a massage bookable in the hammam, be as lazy or as active as you choose.
