Hotel Pointe Isabelle

  • France, Chamonix

  • Contemporary hotel with mountaineering history 
  • Centre of Chamonix, 3 minutes' walk to ski bus stop and train station 
  • Buffet breakfast and fine 3 course evening meals with choice of menu
  • Lounge, bar and bistro open all day

Located in the heart of Chamonix, this newly renovated hotel has plenty of history behind it. The hotel is named after a British lady, Isabella Straton, who broke boundaries exploring the Alps in the Victorian era with her husband who was a local guide. Her grandchildren opened this hotel and its name still survives. The hotel displays wallpaper and carpet designed in Isabella’s honour, with a modern, contemporary style. The fantastic location in the centre of Chamonix will appeal to both keen skiers and those interested in the culture and activities of Chamonix. The trendy bar/bistro where dinner is taken offers traditional fare with a modern twist and some British and Scandinavian favourites! The sunny terrace adjoining the bar is one of Chamonix’s favourite spots for enjoying the mountain scenery and soaking up the resort atmosphere.

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 2018/19

There has been some damage in the summer to the mid station of the Grands Montets and Lognan gondolas and they may not be open in the winter. 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 un-accessible 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.
