High in the Rhône-Alpes, in the south-eastern region of France, you’ll find a small ski village called Megève. The village is known less for its quality of skiing, and more for having the hottest chalets in the region. New to Megève this season is the Chalet Brickell, which has it’s own nightclub, swimming pool, theater (with beds for seats), and one of the coolest car parks you’ll ever drive into!
The interiors walls, floors, and ceilings are lined with vintage wood planks which are glammed up with fine materials such as velvet, leather, and marble. The art on the walls are one of a kind, rare shots by well known photographers, only to be seen at the Brickell.
The hotel owes the beauty of the suites to the skills of Italian craftsman who are “specialized in the construction of yachts. The walls made of wood met by an oak floor covered with thick rugs, while shagreen leather frames the doorway. Cut-velvet panels line the wall and ceiling, like a canopy above the bed, which is covered with a fur bedspread.” The hotel explained. Sounds like the perfect place to cozy up with a book and hot tea, or to head over to the private club – you decide.
