Eleven Experience Chalet Pelerin
Head off the beaten path to Chalet Pelerin—a quintessential, uber-cozy mountain cabin in the tiny French Village of Le Miroir. Brought to you by the masters of luxury and adventure, Eleven Experience, it is no wonder Chalet Pelerin was named “Best Lodge” in Outside Magazine’s Travel Awards. The region offers a local treat for every day of the week: go off-piste skiing on secret runs, spend a day sampling robust local cheeses, hike past glacier ponds and bike through wildflower fields to helicopter picnics. When you can’t go anymore, retreat to sheepskin throws, Scandinavian breakfast nooks, an indoor saltwater pool, Finnish sauna, steam room, and outdoor hot tub. What’s more, the décor is spot-on: overstuffed armchairs in herringbone nestle around stone fireplaces, vintage maps and birch tree wallpaper decorate the walls, impeccably worn leather couches beg you to flop down and kick your feet-up to stare at the exposed beams, and a state-of-the-art black range inspires cooks to whip-up a post-ski snack or a five course meal.
