10. Chesa el Toula, Suvretta Hill – reviewed by Felix Milns
If St. Moritz is Switzerland’s most glamorous ski resort, then the Suvretta hill is its most exclusive suburb, with property values to match Belgravia. Chalets are hard to come by here, so the newly launched Chesa el Toula is a rare, and rarified, find. A classical Engadine house, it been spectacularly refurbished in understated style.
Set back from the quiet road and backdropped by woods, it has a cosy, private feel – despite weighing in at over 900m2 over 5 floors. Top marks go to the games room with full bar and pool table complete with liveried cloth, big enough to host your own nightclub. Next to it is a home cinema with colourful roche bobois wall to wall daybeds to sprawl out on. Up at the top of the house the master suite is split level, with a large mezzanine bedroom up in the eaves. Bathrooms throughout are spectacular, all clad in different oversize marble. Kids will love the double bed bunk bedroom. And who needs skiing when the spa comes with a steam room, jet current pool, indoor and outdoor hot tub and gym?
Exclusively run by specialist top-end ski operator Leo Trippi, your rental covers the accommodation and chalet manager, with all other services entirely bespoke. Whether that’s three chefs for rolling 24-hour service, stocking the cellar with your chosen wines or flying in a baby grand piano at 24 hour’s notice. Nothing is too much trouble.
