Chalet Bella Coola is no ordinary chalet. How many chalets have a grand staircase? How many chalets contain a treasure trove of rare antiques and artifacts? Chalet Bella Coola breaks the mould. Although some aspects of Bella Coola are traditionally Alpine in style, the blend of beautiful antique furniture and the elegant decor combine to provide a sophisticated ambience that adds up to result in a super-de-luxe holiday experience.
The open plan living area situated on the first floor is a delight. The huge windows allow the light to flood in and the views afforded are wonderful and inspiring. The roaring log fire in the large hearth is a feature you will appreciate. In the evening as you gaze into the flames and sip champagne you will feel at complete ease in the sumptuous sofas as you await the culinary delights that the experienced chef is passionately preparing.
The 5 bedrooms, all en suite, are luxuriously comfortable and surprising in their choice of decor and furnishings. Youʼll be fighting over the master bedroom suite on the top floor.
With itʼs private terrace with breathtaking views of spectacular mountain scenery. The chalet is completely wired for sound and vision throughout with networked Crestron entertainment system, TVʼs in every bedroom and a central DVD and music server.
Through exotically beautiful antique Indian gates lies an elegantly refined spa complex, which guests can access by special arrangement. The indoor pool comes complete with massage jets and panoramic mountain views in all directions. There is also a large hamman and spacious bar area. Chalet Bella Coola is a jewel in the crown of the SunBoutique portfolio.

“The lavish 10-person Bella Coola, set in a private garden in Verbier, achieves an intriguing blend of traditional Swiss and more exotic design elements. In addition to cosy wood-panelled bedrooms, a vaulted wine cellar and giant fossilised elk antlers, you’ll also find delicately carved teak four-poster beds, vibrant Kashmiri saris and Moroccan lanterns. The spa area is spectacular: the large pool affords mountain views through glass doors, which open on to the garden, and there’s a hammam and bar.”
“Bella Coola combines a beautiful old Swiss wood exterior with contemporary interior design and four Anglo-Indian-style bedrooms with four-poster beds, flowing curtains and bright throws. The reception room is centred around a raised fireplace with built-in seating for cold winter evenings, and the chalet is wired with a fully-integrated entertainment system.”
Listed by Peter Hardy at The Telegraph as one of The Best Alpine Chalets
“State of the Art: The beautiful old wooden exterior is traditionally Swiss, but deceptively Chalet Bella Coola is of the most ultra-modern chalets in design and full of surprises. Through giant, antique Indian gates lies a spectacular spa area: large tiled steam room with a fibre optic ceiling constellation and an indoor pool with its own underwater sound system and massage jets to soothe those aching muscles”
“Best for After-ski Relaxation - Soak away the aches and pains from the day’s skiing at Bella Coola’s private spa for you and 10 other guests by having a dip in your large indoor pool surrounded by drapes, pool bar and Turkish Hamman. Finally ease yourself into the private outdoor hot tub where you can admire the awe-inspiring Verbier mountain ranges."

If you're looking for something super-cosy AND insanely luxurious - with important things like an enormous swimming pool that looks directly out onto your own snowy (or sunny, if you're here in summer) gardens, a twinkly hammam, a champagne bar, a plentifully stocked wine cellar and the obligatory outdoor hot tub - head to the Bella Coola estate. There are nine bedrooms, numerous balconies, an entertainment room and a huge open-plan living room/kitchen area with vast sofas for tired ski legs, open fires and a swanky ibex skull with glinting pink-crystal eyes. The owners have exotic tastes, and there are Moroccan touches throughout the chalet, from elephant-head door handles to metal lampshades, as well as the extraordinary carved wooden entrance to the spa zone, which looks like something from a Balinese temple. The bedrooms all have ensuite bathrooms and lovely starchy white beds with fur throws

There is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. When that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience in high-end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We handpick our villa partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered villas:
When you awake from your dreamy sleep you can rest assured that breakfast has been taken care of and awaits you. Freshly squeezed oranges and healthy fruit juices along with a selection of delicious teas and coffee are just the start. Yoghurts, crispy cereals, fresh fruits and a tempting display of fresh breads & delicate pastries complete the table. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? If creamy porridge with honey or simply toast hits the spot, just ask, it’s on the menu. With breakfast taken care of all you have to do is decide how to spend the day. A trip to a stunning beach or perhaps time relaxing by your own private pool – decisions, decisions! Life can be tough …….
Whether you’d prefer to have your chef prepare a wonderful spread at lunchtime or alternatively you’d like to dine al-fresco under the stars, the choice is yours. With an emphasis on using specially selected fresh local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt-in-the-mouth meal befitting of a Michelin starred restaurant. From sun soaked BBQ’s on the terrace to delicious locally inspired menus, your chef will be in touch with you personally before your arrival to discuss your preferences.
The villa provides house wines, beers, a drinks tray of two bottles of house spirits and mixers. Champagne is served with canapés on 6 nights of your stay.
The chef is happy to cater to specific dietary requirements. Just let us know about any special requests regarding dietary requirements such as gluten free options. Maybe you’re celebrating a birthday? A cake bedecked with candles can be arranged or maybe just favourite dishes, nothing is too much trouble, just ask. Maybe you’d like an earlier high tea for the youngest children? We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted.
