Alps happen to be one of the most beautiful and sought-after mountain ranges in the world. Dotted with holiday destinations, they are the spots where natural grandeur meets man-made luxury. Among these resorts, lies the petite and peaceful town of La Thuile.
La Thuile used to be a mining town in the olden days but now it is a prime spot for luxury resorts and is also home to fantastic skiing pistes. So much so that it is set to host a leg of the women’s Alpine Skiing World Cup in February next year. You can reach the neighbouring country France, just by skiing through to La Rosière. It is an amazing place to ski because it’s not overcrowded like so many other skiing resorts.
Nira Montana, a member of Design Hotels, exemplifies La Thuile’s significance as a luxury spot and ascetic getaway. It overviews the majestic Mont Blanc and has grandeur written all over it. As a compliment to its magnificent location and award-winning services, Nira Montana won Luxury Travel Guide’s ‘Luxury Design Hotel of the Year.’ The winners for these awards are chosen by a team of experts which travels around the world extensively, carefully choosing the best among hotels, airlines, tour operators etc.
Expressing delight over the development, Giuseppe Artolli, General Manager of Nira Montana, 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.’
This luxurious resort is the perfect alloy of village traditions and modern opulence. So book your tickets and warm up your limbs because 160 km of skiing awaits you.
