A few kilometers away from the village of Megève, perched on the hill-side, the Chalet Ornella is a real refuge for aesthetes people looking for an authentic luxury and discrete place.
The house is an ancient farm made of wood which was renovated with care. Like a true Invitation au Voyage, “There, all is but order and beauty, luxury, quiet and delight”.
The 650-square-meter farm opens onto majestic stairs which leads on the first floor to the main room with 8.50 meters of ceiling height. Arranged like an artist’s workshop, light-flooded through bay windows, the house features a splendid dining room open onto a terrace, a little boudoir lounge area, a large living room organized around a period fireplace with a view on the hills. On the other side, a kitchen is organized around a central made of stone island which hides a discrete back kitchen so as the chef does not disturb the hosts.
A steel-wood staircase allows guests to access to a mezzanine which sheltered an office corner, like if you were suspended between the hills and a spacious living room with an entrance to a master suite
The latter is decorated in the same simple and elegant spirit, highlighting noble materials in the bathroom, including the Carrare marble and blue stones from Savoie.
The four other bedrooms, each of them with their own identity, are located on the main level, three of them have their private bathroom or shower room and the last one has a private shower room. This floor welcomes a wooden dormitory with four simple beds, a true luxury hut for children.
The last floor, located on the garden level, features a made of stone swimming pool which leads to a gym room with wooden machines, a hammam and a home cinema with high-tech equipments , open onto the garden.
The Chalet Ornella is a magical place, a true collection house, like a declaration of love for a timeless privileged moment.
