In the Petit Alaska area of Val d'Isère sits Chalet Inoko, an elegant alpine hideaway and magical setting for your winter ski holiday. Kerene Barefield was fortunate enough to recently visit, and spills the secrets of Purple Ski - the finest luxury chalet hospitality service in the French Alps.

Val d'Isere is widely acclaimed to be one of the top resorts in the world, with some of the best snow records in Europe.

Featuring The Luxury Gent Features The Ultimate Bikes and Cycling...

Having owned many road bikes, mountain bikes, commuters, and everything in-between, as a keen cyclist for the last 20 years, I’ve watched with curiosity, amusement, and perhaps even disdain, at the coming of the “e-bike”. When the first examples hit the market, they were expensive, heavy, short-ranged, and sucked up some of your power in each pedal stroke when they weren’t contributing, in short, they barely overcome their own burden. Such has been the inexorable march of technological improvement though, that a watershed moment has been reached. As a purist and fanatic, I was a tough crowd for an e-bike, but my head has been well and truly turned by the bikes that follow, and though initially, I included them benevolently, more for completion than anything else, they turned out to be so good, and so fun, that for sure, my next bike is an e-bike.

Featuring Sustainable Sybarite: The future of golf set for...

Founded by trained marine biologist and qualified accountant Ed Sandison, OCEANTEE is on a mission to change how the industry and golfers think about plastic use and its environmental impact. The company was the first to produce golf tees made from bamboo - one of the fastest-growing and, therefore, renewable plants in the world - and has accessories and a men's and women's clothing range made entirely from sustainable fabrics. "Over 1.5 billion trees every year, and roughly half are plastic. That's a lot of plastic. Clubs like Prince's Sandwich have banned plastic tees. Royal North Devon found tees in birds' nests, especially the coloured ones; birds were feeding plastic to their young. They've found plastic tees on the beach, too. Bamboo breaks down over time and doesn't release toxins as it does."

Roberto Grilli: The mastermind lighting up Formula E

Recently appointed to manage the Formula E - Diriyah ePrix in Saudi Arabia, Roberto tells The Sybarite how he got into the motorsports and lighting industry, the changes he has had to make during the recent pandemic, and what the appointment to the Formula E race means to him.  Tell us a little bit about yourself and your background. As DZ Engineering’s General Manager, I am currently responsible for both commercial and business development in integrated solutions for race track circuits, sports venue lighting, museums and architectural lighting. Prior to this, I had pursued automation and software engineering with the vision that I, one day, will be building the first real Mecha, a Japanese giant anime robot. Shortly after joining this, I realised that I would not have been able to survive coding for that long - I would be, in fact, bored to death. When I had the opportunity to switch professions, I grabbed on to something more exciting and here I am now, with over 15 years of experience in across both motorsports and lighting industries
