NATURAL BEAUTY AND LUXURY ADDRESS SWITZERLAND
Switzerland is one of the richest countries in the world, with its four official languages and world renown ski resorts; and the Alps make up 60% of its land. The mountain villages, hillsides and valleys are home to both different architectural structures and the wilderness together. The most characteristic feature of the chalets is that they are built with materials that are in harmony with the surrounding natural beauty and techniques that are appropriate for the rough climate. These buildings that have stone and wooden materials highlight a romantic chalet concept with both their enticing architecture and cozy interior decoration designs.
