BAITA 1697

Sestriere, Italy

1st Feb 2016

Nestled in an old mountain village near Sestriere, interior designer and owner, Lucie McCullough, has converted this 17th century Piedmontese farmhouse into a stunning luxury ski lodge. With room for 12 adults and six children, well thought-out spaces and a distinctive style create a sumptuous escape from the cold outside. There’s a harmonious interplay between the original stone walls, exposed beams, oriental furnishings and luxe textures such as fur and felt.

The new also references the old; ‘1697’ is engraved into the beam above the fireplace and one of the floors was inspired by the local costume museum floor. Bedrooms are furnished with custom made Egyptian cotton bed sheets, while bathrooms come with under-floor heating, top of the range fittings and salon standard hair dryers. While there’s no shortage of comfort indoors, braver guests can enjoy the eight person wooden hot tub and roof terrace with a vista of Monte Banchetta.
