The summer of 2014 will make history as the summer of pastel colours. A palette of childhood shades that makes memories even softer and unmistakable. Amangiri is part of this idyll of pale pink, sky-blue and soft yellow. A dream that remains a dream even now it has come true. To reach Amangiri you skirt Lake Powell – a contrast between emerald water and brick-red earth – then cross an area of pink desert and experience silence in a mild monsoon…
by Jean-Christophe Lalanne
Born in 1964 in Marmande (near Bordeaux), a former tennis teacher, Jean-Christophe started his career in the fashion industry in Paris in 1992 and he is still in the fashion management. A few years ago he (together with François) bought a big peaceful land in Portugal and built Villa Extramuros, a modern haven in the Alentejo countryside. Jean-Christophe and François are sublimely taking care of it and of their four awesome in-house 4 cats, Mr Toto, Ms Lulu, Mr Riri e Ms Mila.
Amangiri means “peaceful mountain” and it’s a resort tucked in the Utah desert. You’ll be amazed by the view of such an amazing building blending into its dramatic surrounding. For once in your life you’ll fall asleep in the immense silence of this protected valley.
