This chalet is indeed a “pearl” nestled in the Alps — even its coloration will bring to mind various pearl colors of white, cream, pale gray, and black: it’s the luxurious Pearl Mountain Chalet, Megève by Pure Concept. This sumptuous, ultra-modern vacation rental is one of several chalets offered for discriminating travelers in the world-renowned ski capitals of Megève and Courchevel 1850. As befits their setting, these homes give you and your family plenty of room, top-of-the-line appointments, and service worthy of a stay in a grand palace: transfers by helicopter from airports and to nearby peaks; housekeepers, private chefs and chauffeurs, concierges, and availability of spa-type services such as massage and beauty treatments. Every chalet offers first-class pampering and a splendid retreat, tailored to your needs.
This chalet has a young “vibe”: pillows in a bedroom proclaim “love” and “rock,” a unique staircase to the upper levels starts with a sharp curve, and décor is strictly modern, streamlined, and minimalist. But minimalism is only the decorating approach; fabrics are lush and soft, finishes elegant (witness the “pearl” effect of gray-veined marble in the baths). You’ll have four large en-suite bedrooms plus a “dormitory” — check out the seemingly wall-to-wall sleeping areas! — with stunning views of Mont Blanc from every room. Curl up in front of the cozy fireplace or enjoy the outdoor terrace, winter or summer; avail yourself of the wine cellar, keep yourself looking sharp with an in-house laundry, or have a soak in your own private Jacuzzi. It’s all yours in this fabulous escape — Pearl Mountain, Megève.
