Chalet Brickell is a recently opened (December 2011) luxury chalet in Megève, a commune in the Rhône-Alpes region, France. It was designed by Swiss firm Pure Concept and boasts 12,900 square feet of lavishly appointed spaces.
This translates to seven beautiful and cozy bedrooms, 
enough to accommodate up to 18 guests at a time.

The building is located at the foot of the mountain, offering amazing views and excellent vacationing conditions. Elegant decorations, luxe fabrics, noble materials, and warm colors are some of the details that give this place a unique, sophisticated charm. The service too is simply impeccable

Every room has its own character, like the plush Master bedroom, the opulent Golden bedroom with gilded details, the White bedroom with leather-paneled walls, and the large, welcoming living room. Also very nice are the indoor pool area, the home cinema, the night club, the massage room, and pretty much every single inch of the chalet! No wonder the prices range between €25,000 and €135,000!
