You can be forgiven if, at first glance, you think the unofficial “mascot” of Chalet Carat Courchevel by Pure Concept is the polar bear; stuffed bears are everywhere in this magnificent vacation chalet in the Alps. The chalet, an upscale retreat for the discriminating traveler, is located in Courchevel 1850, a renowned ski area; in the midst of the snow season, fully lighted, it glows like a diamond — but a very livable diamond, at that. Spacious enough to sleep up to 10, its three levels offer luxuries and amenities comparable to a 5-star resort within your own four walls. Wood predominates in the interior décor, accented by touches of black and gray leather, velvet, and cashmere. At the heart of the chalet is the staircase leading from one level to the other, a graceful glass structure that plays up the shining wood around it.

Everything’s here: a fully-equipped modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances…a dining room and bar…even a terrace, which in summer months is the perfect outdoor dining space. Bedrooms are elegantly appointed with accents of gold, Mongolian lambskin, and whisper-soft rugs; all have en-suite baths outfitted in white Carrera marble. For indoor enjoyment, avail yourself of the Hollywood-style home cinema, with its deep purple décor and plush gray loungers — or have a dip in the heated marble pool, just off the bar area. When you add in the services of a housekeeper, private chef, and chauffeur, you’ll soon know why those polar bears look happy: they get to stay here all the time!
