Master of Interior Architecture Pierre Yovanovitch creates new alpine-chic hotel Le Coucou
If what you need to beat February blues is a five-star ski-in/ski-out hotel with panoramic view to the mountains as well as with unique design, then you should definitely check out Le Coucou.
A new entry on the hotel map of the Three Valleys, Le Coucou is perched on the heights of Belvedere, close to Le Rond-Point des Pistes and is designed with innovative style by famous interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch.
Pierre Yovanovitch is known for his signature haute couture aesthetic
The talented designer likes to blend high art, architectural elements, and vintage furniture to create a refined yet unpretentious setting. He is also an expert in 20th century furniture and particularly fond of vintage Scandinavian and American design. An avid art collector himself, Pierre Yovanovitch incorporates contemporary works along with commissioning established and emerging artists to create on-site works.
Design and Interiors of Le Coucou
Each facet of the property’s design, from the architectural build-out of the hotel to the custom design work and painstakingly detailed elegance of the interior decor reflects the history and traditional aesthetic of the region while also adding Pierre Yovanovitch’s taste for art and signature playful aesthetics.
Within the two-year design process, 130 site-specific furniture and lighting pieces have been specially created for the hotel, made in partnership with skilled craftsmen throughout Europe. Decorated in the most updated alpine style, each room is featuring bespoke floor to ceiling elements, from the custom floor covering, seating, wallpaper, and lighting, created specifically by Yovanovitch and team to emphasize the stunning views available from each room.
Art is central to the hotel design, with a selection of more than 160 artworks specially chosen for the property. There are also two four-bedroom ski-in ski-out luxury chalets that combine five-star luxury amenities with the detailed craftsmanship found in a traditional alpine home. Each is fully equipped with four en-suite bedrooms, a spacious living area, and a games area as well as a private ski room, pool and spa.
Wellness & Spa at Le Coucou
The hotel’s indoor and outdoor pool, six massage treatment rooms with specialist treatments from Tata Harper and a sauna area offer guests a deeply relaxing experience after a day of skiing.
The pool areas, divided by a bay window create a stunning, Trompe-l’oeil effect with views of the striking vista outdoors
