Some overtly prestigious chalets exude luxury from a mile off. Others have an unassuming modesty that speaks to the soul of those who harbour nostalgic dreams of cosy winter evenings around a roaring log fire. Aline is unquestionably one of the latter, and abounds with the quintessential feel of a snowy mountain chalet.

Cross the threshold into a spacious living room featuring old wood throughout. The reassuringly rustic timber beams and stone hearth hint at a history steeped in stories from the Alpine pastures. Deer skins adorn the soft grey sofa. It’s spacious yet cosy. No towering ceilings here, instead, there’s a sturdy spruce wood arch that takes the edge off the chill outside and emphasizes what really matters: spending time with family and friends around a table in an authentic mountain setting. In the evening, the lights diffuse the warmth of the flames. In the daytime, the sun floods in. Chalet Aline is south-facing and overlooks the snow-capped Combin mountain range, soaking up their strength through glass panels and French windows that open out onto a wide balcony with traditional carved railings and breathtaking views. Such views can be enjoyed throughout the chalet; each of the three floors has its own beautiful viewpoint, including the master suite which, as one would expect, is a cosy hideaway tucked away on the top floor. To enjoy summer to the full, the sliding doors open wide looking over the rooftops, with the Valley of Bagnes in the distance. In winter, the big armchair and bench seat are an invitation to sit back and raise a glass to the scenic landscape. For the ultimate touch of luxury, even the steam room has fantastic views of the mountains!
The chalet is well thought out, with a bunk room for children, two double bedrooms on the ground floor, and a spacious TV den. There’s also a ski and boot room which leads outside, like a crossover from the great outdoors to the snug and cosy interior.
