The winter sports season is in full swing! The opportunity for the editorial staff of Muuuz to take an interest in the brand new establishment in Méribel (73), Le Coucou, an atypical five-star hotel designed by Pierre Yovanovitch. Behind an imposing wooden envelope typical of chalets in the region, the inn combines comfort with Savoyard architecture and elegant design with modernist influences.

Who would suspect that behind this large wooden chalet in the Domaine des Trois-Vallées hides one of the highest-end establishments in the region? Offering a 360-degree view of the mountain landscape, the Hôtel des Maisons Pariente has an exceptional decor by Pierre Yovanovitch, colorful and comfortable, inviting to relaxation. Luxury, calm and voluptuousness.

Built on the steep site of an old ski slope, Le Coucou is spread over ten levels and offers a luxury clientele 55 rooms including 39 suites offering a unique panorama of Méribel. A blank canvas that Pierre Yovanovitch hastened to color thanks to his inimitable style. The designer from Nice offers a reinterpretation of the Savoyard inn and delivers here a contemporary and trendy version of the mountain hotel where heather and designer pieces coexist in an ensemble playing on volumes and differences in materials. The warm furniture then declines wood, fabric, metal or leather and fits into wooden niches or large spaces with colorful walls. The whole is completed by decorative elements referring to the world of the mountain, ranging from suspensions that look like ice cubes to chairs evoking birds.

The place to be this winter!
