If you are one of those lucky enough to be making your way to the gorgeous slopes of the Alps this year, you may as well do things properly and treat yourself to some luxurious accommodation.
Le Santeleina Hotel in French Savoie, located in the heart of Val D’Isere, is an elegant establishment that tastefully combines warm and cheerful tradition with comfortable modernity. After a long day of skiing and breathing pure mountain air, you may wish to simply and serenely sink into your plush bed. Or, perhaps, you can take a tiny detour to the “M Bar” to sample one of their expertly made cocktails, before heading to the hotel restaurant “La Table des Neiges”. Chef Jérôme Labrousse and his team, reflecting Le Santeleina’s blend of traditional and contemporary, offer an exquisite selection of classic French delicacies, with a twist. From the Pan fried Foie Gras served with an Upside down Apple pie with barbecue sauce, to the Turbot fillet cooked at low temperature and Fish bone fumet with winter citrus fruits, your taste buds will be grateful. Booking is recommended.
Should you wish to dedicate an afternoon or even a full day to unadulterated relaxation, le Santaleina has its own Japanese-style “Pure Spa”, located on two floors and fully equipped with heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, fitness room, sauna and hammam. The large surrounding windows and views of the snow will guarantee you don’t forget for a single moment your stunning whereabouts.
Whether you decide to fly to the mountains for a swift skiing weekend, or for a week or two to escape the smog of the city, staying at le Tsanteleina is a choice you will not regret.
