The Chalet Art Project

Here at Amazon Creek a very import part of our ethos is to ensure we are doing what we can in supporting our local communities. In doing so this helps us to provide unrivalled experiences to our clients.

As part of our mission to support our local communities as best we can this year, we are showcasing a selection of local artwork through-out our Luxury chalets in Chamonix. By creating a gallery style selection of local pieces through-out the chalets we aim to create a unique environment for our guests to enjoy these amazing pieces, while also providing a great space for artists to showcase their works.

This project will be ongoing with the aim of adding and replacing artworks to create a revolving showcase of all the best local talent.

As well as all the artwork on display being for sale all these incredible artists would be delighted to discuss commissioning special pieces just for you. You can find details of the current artists and the artwork we are showcasing here.

Artist: Sylwia Pydych

Profile: Sylwia has always had a love for art, originally from Poland she graduated with a sculpture specialty from the art academy in Boulder, Colorado. Shortly after that she moved back to Europe to set off for travel and work in different countries. On her way through the countries she and her partner fell in love with Chamonix Mt.Blanc and here she connected her passion for art and skiing. After years and numerous adventures, she found herself buying a piece of land on the Greek Ionian Island Lefkada, re-building an old stone house and creating an plain-air art gallery in the abandoned village of Roupakias. This magical and inspiring place surrounded by forests of olive trees has since then become her creative space, giving her art a new momentum, nourished by the ubiquity of nature in all its forms.
