There are projects that seem blessed by new alignments of the stars, since they succeed so effortlessly in ticking all the boxes. Indeed, the starry sky above the “Les Marmottes” residence is particularly bright, especially on the clear nights of the winter months. In a place that is amongst the snowiest in the Alps, finding yourself simultaneously an hour from the sea and the Côte d’Azur, a stone’s throw from the slopes and near the main arterial road, which is easy to reach and always clear, means that you can relax and think purely about how to make the most of your leisure time. With a stunning view of the Olimpica ski slope in one direction and of the side of a beautiful mountain in the other, you can savour the large terraces heated by the sun from early in the morning. It all comes complete with fitness area, sauna and space equipped for indoor golf.
The warmth of wood, the embrace of the hearth, the rejuvenation on offer in the spa
Being surrounded by the warmth of wood thanks to the cosy fireplace, you will enjoy exceptionally high-quality residential living, and thanks to the A1 rating for energy efficiency, the temperature will stay just right. Moreover, the Wi-Fi connection and the option to control the climate via mobile phone add that high-tech component that these days is more essential than ever. The residence faces south/south-west, ensuring that the view from the large terraces over the woodlands and the peaks of the Maritime Alps expands the sense of space all around, the deafening silence of nature interrupted only by the trickling of the waters of a nearby stream. The spacious car park next to the residence is the starting point for all manner of excursions, the ski lifts can be reached in next to no time, and the quaint, time-honoured centre of the town is in the the immediate vicinity. The two-storey, small-scale residence guarantees high levels of privacy. In addition, it is incredibly easy to reach from the highway, which is the first road to be cleared in the event of snow. Indulge is some stretching in the fitness area, relax in the lounge area and enjoy a revitalising sauna after a day full of sport – every moment at Les Marmottes is all about absolute perfection. Particularly noteworthy is the space set aside for indoor golf, which allows enthusiasts to keep honing their skills throughout the year and beginners to make their first forays into what is one of the most fascinating sports in the world.
Do you want a house that is exclusively yours, with large spaces and terraces, exposed beams, a garden and a 200 m2 basement with room for a garage, a cellar and even space in which to install your private spa? At Les Marmottes, you can choose one of the three generously proportioned, detached chalets, complete with fireplace and lift that connects the basement to the lounge on the ground floor and the sleeping area on the first floor. The view is the same, the proximity to the ski lifts and the centre of town does not change, but the quality of life gets even higher.
THE QUEEN OF THE MARITIME ALPS
In the early 20th century, Limone Piemonte was one of the cradles of skiing in Italy. Very snowy in the winter and particularly suited to excursions during the other months, thanks to the railway that connects it to the cities of Piedmont and Liguria and to the Côte d’Azur, it has always developed separately from the other parts of the region. The ski lifts are modern and rapid, the numerous Alpine huts are great places to re-charge your batteries during the day and let you hair down in the evening. At the forefront of the promotion of sustainable tourism and of efforts to pedestrianise the area in order to enhance mobility, it has a historic centre that features typical Alpine architecture embellished by a 12th-century church. It plays host to all of the main amenities you would expect, as well as a major ski school, which even supported the excellent Italian World Cup Alpine ski racer Marta Bassino. In the summer, the cable car and the chair lift (complete with attachments for bikes) make it easy to immerse yourself in downhill skiing. For excursions on foot, by mountain bike, on a motorbike or with an off-road vehicle, the Via del Sale offers everything you could possibly imagine: stretching for more than 100 km, it is an ancient route that, passing through the Valle delle Meraviglie (Valley of Marvels), crosses into France and runs from the Alps to the sea.
