Winter is heavily upon us and my mind is fixated on getting to the slopes for some on piste action. Being ‘cosy’ is what the snow is all about – open fires, schnapps, beanies and maybe even some romancing. Well yesterday while posting some images on tumblr I found a stunning photo of a cabin in Courchevel that screamed ‘cosy’ and got on the hunt to find some more information about it.
For me, this is about as idealistic as a snow holiday gets and being that time of year I thought I’d get everyone in the mood. Petite Marmotte is an intimate, self-contained chalet situated in the exclusive Belvedere area located between Courchevel 1650 and 1850 – ski in ski out (of course), with all the original trimmings you want and all the modern appointments you need. The building is a former Mazot, a small cottage built as an addition to large family homes to house groceries, meats and hay in case of a fire. As you can see it has been meticulously renovated for a luxurious couples getaway. It’s not quite Thredbo, but it is perfect for the Versatile Gent.
