This captivating chalet set in the pristine natural surroundings of the French Alps has direct access to the lake.

Architect Olga Zubova, known for her singular, inventive approach to design, crafted the project.

While built with traditional materials, like stone and wood, used in Alpine architecture, she interpreted the home in a contemporary vein.

A spectacular feature in the spacious living room is the striking wood boiserie that lends warmth and intimacy to the setting. The large Groundpiece sofas placed near the fireplace are upholstered in a sophisticated beige fabric that matches the curtains used to shade the large windows.
