Chalet Equine, contemporary luxury chalet with captivating scenic views
This contemporary mountain luxury chalet, which has a most captivating scenic surround of larch and fir woodland slopes and the towering pink rock Dolomite peaks of Pelmo (3168 m) and Antelao (3263 m), is a rarity of such quality and size, in and around Cortina d’Ampezzo, the “Queen” of the Dolomites. Located to the north of the Veneto, in Borca di Cadore (56 km from the Austrian border and less than a two-hour drive from Venice), this has been lavishly refurbished into a fine family residence. This area is now being re-discovered for its appealing 60s chic design and for the preserved private and peaceful environment. Mountain lovers will appreciate being immersed in the quiet woodland with dramatic views, away from the hectic touristic crowds and yet just a few minutes from the lifts of San Vito di Cadore (6 minute drive) and Cortina d’Ampezzo (12 km), venue of the 1956 Winter Olympic Games and of the 2021 World Ski Championships, with 140 km of slopes for all levels of skiers and part of the Superski Dolomiti Carouosel (1,200km of slopes).
This luxury chalet, on 2 levels welcomes up to 8 guests in 4 good-sized bedrooms, including an artfully crafted wood-clad master suite with private lounge with a vaulted ceiling under the eaves.
The ample main living area has a captivating spaciousness that manages to be an amenably intimate setting where everyone can socialise together in the glow of the feature fireplace, which marks the divide between the open living area and kitchen. There is also direct access out onto the outdoor terrace and there will be no better atmosphere in which to relax with family and friends.
In the summer visitors can immerse themselves in nature as this area is fantastic for walkers, climbers, cyclists and even for trout fishing. Gourmands can feast on authentic mountain cuisine, from Michelin star to traditional cuisine, found throughout this region. Guests also have access to the Hammam, Sauna, Fitness room, Children playground, and indoor Jacuzzi at the nearby Sports Centre.
This luxurious family chalet is ideal for a family, or even two, who wish to be in a quiet zone against a backdrop of startling and dramatic Dolomite scenery but away from the clamour of glitzy Cortina, to which the property is sufficiently close to allow for speedy access to ski lifts and shopping sessions! A car will be essential and there is ample parking space at the chalet.
