About Bertha

Tucked away in the heart of Québec, Canada, the Bertha project is a stunning family chalet designed by the talented Perron team. Commissioned in 2023, this extraordinary residence blends the luxurious comforts of a boutique hotel with the warmth and coziness of a private home.

Crafting a Turnkey Hotel Experience

Recognizing the client’s desire for a truly turnkey solution, the Perron team embraced the hotel concept wholeheartedly. From customized furnishings sourced from European manufacturers to Bertha-branded bath products, no detail was overlooked. The five spacious suites, each with its own unique name and color palette, offer guests the ultimate in comfort and relaxation, just like in a high-end hotel.

Embracing Nordic Elegance

The interior design of Bertha is a harmonious blend of minimalism, warmth, and functionality. Inspired by the surrounding mountains, the team opted for a Nordic-inspired aesthetic, featuring exposed fir wood framing, whitewashed to perfection. Abundant fenestration bathes the expansive 500 sq. ft. (46.5 sq. m) living room in natural light, creating a constant connection with the stunning river views and the great outdoors.

Blending Tradition and Innovation

To infuse the chalet with a sense of playfulness and eclecticism, the designers incorporated a mix of textured, colorful, and unusual elements. A yellow piano in the living room, a custom-made red slide providing access to the children’s playroom, and a vibrant dining area all contribute to the positive energy that radiates throughout the Bertha chalet.

Catering to Every Need

The Bertha chalet is designed to cater to the needs of every family member and guest. On the ground floor, a cozy lounge with a suspended fireplace invites visitors to unwind after a day on the slopes, while the children’s play area offers a safe and colorful space for endless fun. Upstairs, the grand 500 sq. ft. (46.5 sq. m) living room and the fully-equipped professional kitchen ensure that the family can host gatherings and entertain in style.

A Truly Remarkable Retreat

Ultimately, the Bertha project is a remarkable fusion of hotel-inspired luxury and the warmth of a family home. With its Nordic-inspired design, innovative features, and attention to detail, this chalet offers a truly unique and unforgettable experience for all who visit.
