Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

We are delighted to feature this state-of-the-art, chic, yet comfortable hotel at the foot of the Aiguille du Midi cable-car giving access to the infamous Valley Blanche (guide required, book locally).

Its wonderful spa, which covers over 500m², is open all day for residents only. A treat for skiers and non skiers alike, the cutting edge concept offers hot areas (sauna, hammam, jacuzzi) linked by a warm ‘tiedipaerium’ to the cold area which includes an ice grotto and plunge pool. There is also a large indoor swimming pool. Beauty treatments, hairdressers and massages are also available (pay locally).

The large lobby in the heart of the hotel offers a variety of special hospitality areas which include an all day tea and coffee station (Free), multimedia area, home cinema, virtual reality film corner with 360 degree headsets, bar and restaurant. Children are well catered for with their own play room and there's even a popcorn machine!

Chamonix

With 90% of the terrain above 2000m, Chamonix has for many years attracted skiers looking for good snow and who also want to ski the famous Vallée Blanche - or tackle the rest of the extensive off-piste skiing. There is an efficient ski bus which links the five main ski areas with our accommodation in Chamonix and the nearby village of Les Houches. Set against truly spectacular scenery at the foot of the majestic Mont Blanc, the resort's setting is both unique and breathtaking. Chamonix offers an excellent range of sporting and leisure facilities with an unrivaled nightlife whilst Les Houches is quieter but full of Alpine charm. The choice of skiing is amazing, from cruisy blues and fun reds at Le Brevent, Flegere and Le Tour to more challenging runs at Les Grands Montets. Beginners start off in Chamonix or the nearby pretty village of Les Houches.  

Note for winter 2019/20

During the summer of 2018, there was some damage caused to the mid station of the Grands Montets and Lognan gondolas. They will still not be open for winter 19/20. There will still be access to the Grands Montets area via the Plan Jordan gondola to the main bowl and the only area that may be unaccessible is the Bouchard and Herse chairlift. The Grands Montets has huge off piste and our ski school have said that it is business as usual with instructors guiding on different parts of the mountain.  

The local lift pass does not cover the top lifts of the Grands Montets and this pass is most suitable for beginners. The other ski areas will be fully open

  • Brevent & Flegere: 16 pistes
  • Le Tour: 19 pistes
  • Les Houches: 27 pistes

And Grands Montets will have 12 out of 15 pistes.
