A charming, family run chalet style hotel situated in the calm area of Les Mouilles, one of the oldest inhabited areas of the valley. The hotel enjoys splendid views of Mont-Blanc and the Aiguilles Rouges range and is just a stones throw from the main facilities of the town.

The hotel has been recently refurbished and all of the 28 rooms have been beautifully finished using traditional wood and stone features throughout, making the property extremely charming. Sophie and Michel Paccard, together with their staff, are delighted to welcome you in both the summer and winter months.

There is a range of ensuite double rooms available, all with stunning mountain views and some looking directly at Mont Blanc. A larger, triple room is perfect if you are travelling with a child or why not treat yourself to the Mont Blanc suite, with its own private lounge and uninterrupted views of the surrounding peaks. Rooms are available on a bed and breakfast basis giving you the flexibility to enjoy the town's many restaurants in the evening. However, there are light local speciality platters available at the hotel throughout the day and they are happy to make up packed lunches as well. If you are a special group or conference booking, half-board and additional catering may be arranged on request.

The hotel has a brand new spa and wellness area - The Jardin Alpin - that offers a whole world of relaxation options during your stay. There are three different sauna experiences, a private jacuzzi, a gentle relaxation room with ambient music and a natural pool filled with plant-filtered water for a refreshing dip. A real treat for body and soul!

Guests can also enjoy a comfortable lounge area, a sitting room with wine and cocktail bar and there is a children's room with games for younger visitors.

If you're looking for larger or more private living space, then the hotel also offers five suites in a separate chalet, which share a living space. It's perfect for families or groups who may appreciate some independence but still want to enjoy all the hotel services.

Alternatively, La Maisonnee is a self-sufficient, self-catering chalet located within the hotel grounds, where you'll find plenty of creature comforts but can still benefit from the hotel facilities.

Or should you be looking to combine business with pleasure and require a conference room and equipment, these are available also.

Watch this...


This property is let on self-catering basis, however, this doesn’t mean you need to cook for yourself! There are a number of private chefs you can book who can prepare your meals for the full week or the odd night. Alternatively you could opt for a food delivery service.

Worth knowing

Try and book a room on the high floors with a balcony to get amazing views of Le Brevent. A 10% reduction for stays of 7 nights or more is available throughout the year. There are also reductions for mid-week stays from Sunday to Thursday - book 3 nights for the price of 2. 

Who should go

With a play room and large garden, it is a great option for family with young children who still want a bit of elegance. It is equally suited to those looking for a romantic getaway in stylish, tranquil accommodation close to the local restaurants and night-life. 

The Neighbourhood

Peaceful residential area away from all the nosie of the town. However, you are only a 2 minute walk from the Avenue Michel Croz where there are a number of bars and restaurants as well as the train station. 

The Bar

A cosy and welcoming salon with comfy leather sofas and armchairs and plump cushions. They offer a good range of spirits, wines, cocktails and beers for a small bar and the setting is intimate with good personal service. 

The Restaurant

The hotel restaurant only serves breakfast and is available from 07:30 - 10:30 for a supplement of €18 per person.  However, there are light local speciality platters available at the hotel throughout the day, and afternoon tea cakes are served by the fire or in the garden after a hard day in the mountains. Packed lunches can be prepared on request and if you are a special group or conference booking half-board and catering may also be arranged.

What else to book


You’ll need to book your own transfers, when staying here. Your main options are shared or private transfers, but consider whether you would prefer a door-to-door service or a (generally cheaper) “communal” drop-off point at your destination.

Ski Hire

You’ll need to book your own ski hire, when staying here. There are many choices for hiring equipment. Generally, you’re best off choosing somewhere close for ease of access, & less far to carry your kit, easier to make changes, and quicker to return and pay at the end. Nevertheless, many suppliers will deliver and some snow-front rental stores offer ski lockers, so it’s worth checking out all the options.

Lifts & Passes

You’ll need to buy your own lift pass, when staying here. Lift passes can be booked online or bought in resort on arrival. There are many types of pass available, suited to different levels, length of stay and budget. It’s worth reading up on the options to get the most from your lift pass in summer & winter.

Instructors & Lessons

When staying here, you’ll need to book  your own ski or snowboard lessons. Tuition is strongly recommended for complete beginners and is always a good idea whatever your level to perfect your technique. Group lessons are a great way for children to learn with their peers whilst giving you some free time on the slopes. Groups are also a generally cheaper option for adults, however, with a private instructor you’ll have undivided attention and be able to progress at your own pace.

Guides & Tours

When staying here, you’ll need to book your own Guides & Tours, which are a great way to discover Chamonix whilst doing a number of fun activities. During the winter, if you are keen to go off-piste, booking a High Mountain Guide is strongly recommended. Not only do they know the best local spots, these highly trained and experienced individuals are very familiar with the surroundings and can provide loads of insights you won’t get by yourself, as well as helping to ensure your safety.

Families & Kids

You’ll need to book your own childcare, when staying here. There is a great choice of childcare options in Chamonix from full-time nanny services to the odd night of babysitting. In addition, during the winter season, many of the ski-schools operate creche services. Booking in advance is always recommended and strongly advised for the school holiday periods.

Getting Here


As you come to the end of the dual carriage way that enters Chamonix, continue straight on over the first roundabout, past the exit for Mont Blanc Tunnel to Italy. Continue straight over the next two roundabouts. As you pass over the Montenvers train tracks (there will be a large car park on your right before the rail crossing), take the first right (a narrow passage just before the fly over bridge). Continue down this road for 150m and the hotel grounds are on you right.
