Chalet L’Arole is located in the exclusive Chesières enclave of Villars close to the world-renowned Aiglon and Beau Soleil colleges. This impressive alpine residence set out over four floors, comfortably accommodates 16 guests in eight, individually designed, en-suite bedrooms.
Originally built in 1904 and previously owned by the House of Chanel dynasty, the chalet has undergone an extensive renovation completed in 2013. The exterior of the chalet has been lovingly restored while the interior has undergone a complete transformation with a key focus on sustainability. Many of the original features have been retained. Fine materials, handcrafted wood panelling, natural stones, and antique and contemporary furniture have all been utilised to create an outstanding, luxurious family home. The latest security and entertainment systems have also been incorporated into the infrastructure.
The chalet features a gym, cinema room, sauna, and massage room as well as an outdoor heated swimming pool and cedar hot tub perfect for relaxing and enjoying the mountain views.
