Étoile du Nord: A masterpiece of alpine elegance in Val d’Isère

Discover the pinnacle of alpine luxury at Étoile du Nord, where exceptional architecture and world-class amenities redefine mountain living. Share

Located in the exclusive Petit Alaska enclave of Val d’Isère, France, Étoile du Nord stands as a pinnacle of luxury and architectural distinction amidst Alpine chalets. This premier development features two chalets, each epitomizing the peak of opulent living within one of the world’s most sought-after ski destinations.

Architecturally, Étoile du Nord stands out for its innovative design and meticulous attention to detail. The use of materials and craftsmanship is of a standard seldom seen in Alpine properties, reflecting a blend of traditional charm and contemporary elegance. The heart of these chalets is their vast living and dining areas, characterized by sensational triple-height windows that not only flood the space with natural light but also frame the picturesque mountain backdrop perfectly.

Design elements throughout the chalets underscore a commitment to elegance and functionality. Features like marble bathrooms, vast principal suites on private mezzanine floors, and indoor/outdoor pools demonstrate the level of thought invested in creating an unparalleled living experience.

Central to each chalet are bronzed steel staircases, masterpieces in their own right, allowing sunlight to permeate through the property. The open-plan kitchens are a symphony of fumed oak cabinets, Miele appliances, and large stone islands, catering to both grand dining experiences and cosy family meals. The living areas, anchored by open log fires and magnificent faceted fireplaces, are ideal for après-ski gatherings, pre-dinner cocktails, or simply enjoying the tranquil mountain atmosphere.

Sleeping arrangements in Étoile du Nord are equally luxurious. The East Wing hosts seven bedrooms including a bunk room, while the West Wing comprises five bedrooms and a large bunk room. Flexibility in bed configurations caters to various group dynamics, from adult gatherings to family vacations. Each bedroom is adorned with bespoke luxury Italian linens, a Sonos-enabled sound system, and en-suite marble bathrooms, some with expansive walk-in showers, others with baths perfect for unwinding after a day on the slopes.

The luxury extends to the spa and wellness facilities. In the East Wing, a stunning indoor/outdoor pool forms the centrepiece of an extraordinary, light-filled spa area, complete with a retractable glass wall. This feature allows for an immersive experience, whether swimming amidst falling snowflakes or in the warmth of the chalet. The West Wing houses an immense four-meter deep pool, visible from the central staircase, adding a layer of safety for families. Both chalets feature extensive spa facilities, including steam rooms, saunas, and relaxation zones.

Access to the chalets is also granted through a uniquely private tunnel driveway, leading directly into a sanctuary of seclusion and exclusivity.
