Imagine standing amidst the snow clad Alps, ready to ski on world class pistes and in no time at all ski your way from Italy to France. No, this is not from a fantasy book, this is La Thuile. A host for next year’s women’s Alpine Skiing World Cup in February, La Thuile is a wonderful blend of natural grandeur and man-made luxury.
A mining town in the old days, La Thuile is now a luxury destination which is adored by ski lovers, because it one of the best places in the world to ski due to the quality pistes and is relatively quiet compared to other places in the Alps.
Nira Montana, a member of Design Hotels, epitomises the town’s efforts to be a luxury spot as well as an aesthetic getaway. Standing against the backdrop of the sensational Mont Blanc, Nira Montana is a wonder in itself. Luxury Travel Guide recently complimented Nira Montana’s grandeur by awarding it the ‘Luxury Design Hotel of the Year’. The winners for Luxury Travel Guide’s awards are chosen by a team of experts that travel all around the globe and handpick the best among hotels, airline and tour operators.
Giuseppe Artolli, General Manager of Nira Montana, was elated about the nod from Luxury Travel Guide and said, “We are elated to have been awarded Luxury Design Hotel of the Year. Nira Montana’s design is based on the valley’s traditional houses, with a contemporary Nira twist, designed to ensure complete care has been taken with the origins of materials used. It is this fresh positioning that has contributed to us winning this prestigious award.’
If you haven’t booked your room in Nira Montana already, just close your eyes and imagine sipping morning coffee in your room, on a moderately sunny day, with the glare from the snow on Mont Blanc lighting up the outdoors.
