DHH launches luxury alpine chalet

2nd July 2008 Print
Luxury destination club Distinctive Holiday Homes has announced the latest addition to its stable of sumptuous getaways: a stunning chalet nestled high in the Alpine village of Les Mouilles, Megeve.

Famed as one of the most stylish locales in the Haute Savoie region of France, the bustling town is a skier’s dream, and hosts two unique winter sport events: the Vacheron Constantin Snow Golf Cup and the International Snow Polo Meeting. With a plethora of high-end boutiques, restaurants, local markets, cultural events and kids’ entertainment, Megeve is a unique holiday destination that offers just about everything the discerning family could want. It even makes a gorgeous summer spot, when the town and surrounding countryside are in full, astounding bloom.

DHH’s members can enjoy the many attractions of this exquisite town from the lushly designed cosiness of a chalet that maintains the company’s established reputation for indulgence. The three-level, three-bedroom, three-bathroom home comfortably sleeps six adults and two children. It’s located in the heart of the village, a gentle walk from the centre of town and just 100ft from the main chairlift. Guests can survey the majesty of the peaks from the comfort of the master bathroom’s antique copper bathtub, socialise in the gourmet kitchen and dining room with built-in bar, or relax after a hard day’s skiing in the chalet’s own sauna and Jacuzzi. Spacious and stylish with the finest in contemporary finishing, the Megeve chalet blends a new dimension of luxury with rustic French charm.

And there’s even more to this five-star living. DHH members also benefit from an impressive range of standard perks – fully stocked fine food and beverage provisions and use of a luxury car during their stay, as well as year-round membership of Quintessentially, the international concierge service, and private jet charter group Bombardier.

A choice of impressive holiday destinations is not all that DHH offers. Membership provides an impressively affordable alternative to the hassle, expense and financial risk of buying a second home abroad. In today’s uncertain markets, investing in property is no longer a sure thing. DHH members get all the benefits of a guaranteed four weeks holiday a year in a luxurious, homely and family-friendly environment, along with the exciting possibility of vacationing in a different thrilling destination every year – and all this while freeing up the majority of their capital for a less risk-intensive investment.

The company was started by entrepreneur Nick Wood, founder of Australasian internet service provider iHug and owner of the award-winning Octopus resort in Fiji. Wood brought his formidable knowledge of the hospitality industry to bear on the crucial issue of choosing DHH’s properties. The Megeve chalet joins nine hand-picked properties and two luxury yachts as far afield as Corsanico, Fiji and Lake Tahoe. Distinctive Holiday Homes’ latest acquisition has once again raised the bar for luxury vacations.
