Patagonia and Sequoia Brown natural stone by Antolini was chosen for the interior design of the 5-star Hotel Montchalet in Ortisei, Italy. The Montchalet resort offers guests luxurious suites with an intimate atmosphere, meeting the highest standards of service, hospitality, dining and wellness.

The natural stones utilized in the interiors of Hotel Montchalet are Antolini’s Patagonia and Sequoia Brown, both of which belong to the Exclusive Collection.

“Montchalet was founded in 2017 thanks to the passion for hospitality which I share with my family," said Marco Pezzutto, owner, Montchalet. "We immediately decided to focus on the requirements of the most demanding and selective guests, who could not find a location in Val Gardena to match the magnificence of the Ortisei landscape, and the exceptional opportunities provided by the local context.”

“In the wellness area, the Antolini facing in Patagonia transforms the wall of the swimming pool into a fantastic natural tableau. Pale zones with subtle shading stand out on a backdrop that is at times translucent, veiled by the mutable nuances of earth tones, alternating with complex black and golden ramifications.”

Sequoia Brown is the Antolini stone that sets off the bathrooms inside the suites on both the walls and the floors. An apt choice, in line with the architectural language of the resort, a contemporary reinterpretation of the style of alpine construction. The discreet, welcoming image of the private spaces, generated by extensive use of wood, takes on value and tactile allure due to the presence of a stone of vibrant elegance, displaying its soft grain that links back to the idea of antique wooden surfaces.

“In this case, the exceptional appeal of the flooring comes from Antolini’s Sequoia Brown, applied in a very special version," Pezzutto explains. "The marble has the typical geometric effects of parquet, conveying the impression of splendid boards placed horizontally and vertically. While providing extraordinary strength and durability, the floor conveys a sense of warmth usually associated with wood, as well as a dynamism skillfully amplified by the glass surfaces of the shower cabin, which reflect the marvelous patterns of the natural stone. On the wall, marble rises to the height of the mirror and then even further up, once again triggering a game of reflections and overlaps that accompanies guests throughout their experiences in contact with water.”
