This mountain lodge is in the ideal location, just meters from the ski bus stop, local train station and a short walk to the town centre. It has recently been refurbished and boasts a smart modern interior. 

La Chaumiere's  25 rooms are comfortable, practical and really cater for you and all your equipment! All the rooms have fantastic views, either of Mont-Blanc and the Glacier des Bossons or towards Brevent, part of the Aiguilles Rouge range.

They offer spacious double and twin rooms as well as three or four bed rooms for families or other small groups and many have their own balconies. WiFi access is available throughout the hotel. 

The local bus stop that runs to all the ski area is just 50 metres from the hotel as is the train station which has a regular service from St Gervais through to Martigny. 

The Bar

The relaxed bar area offers everything from après ski through to aperitifs and digestive tipples! It is a comfortable, welcoming room that also doubles as a living room. It is the perfect place to unwind after a long day on the mountain. Here, you can share your stories, browse through their library of books and games, or simply sit back and enjoy the views over a well-earned drink.

The Restaurant

Central to the hotel's concept is excellent food. Their menu offers international classics with a local Savoyard touch. Their half board package includes a generous breakfast buffet and three course dinners. During the high season they also serve à la carte and take away lunches.

What else to book

Transfers

The hotel staff are happy to organise your airport transfer for you on your behalf or send you directions if you are travelling by car.

Book Transfers

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. 

Book Ski Hire

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.

Book Ski School

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.

Book a Guide/Tour

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.

Visitor comments

  • "We stayed as a couple over a long weekend (Valentine's day - for our 3 year anniversary) and had everything we needed for a superb ski holiday. We arrived with low expectations due to its two stars, but were pleasantly surprised to be wowed by every part of our stay, beginning with swift plate of delicious cheese, salami and bread after our flight was delayed and we arrived near midnight having had no dinner. Amazing! The hotel got everything right that needed to be tip top: sparkling clean rooms, supremely hot showers, warm and toasty rooms, excellent beer at the bar, extremely helpful staff at the front desk who helped us decide where to ski & booked us a car service to Courmayeur, and a healthy, simple breakfast before each day on the slopes. Its location was great for our purposes - a 5 minute walk to the pedestrian zone, a 12 minute walk to the Aiguille du Midi station, and 50 meters from the No.1 bus station to get to one of the slopes."  - Trip Advisor 
  • "We booked two nights and enjoyed our stay. Recommend dinner as it is a little out of town and the food was delicious. The rate with dinner and breakfast and dinner included was excellent. 20 minute walk into town. Train about 50m away, which ran every hour. We arranged for a day pass which included lifts, gondolas and trains and was well worth it. We travelled all over Chamonix and experience the beautiful views of this special place. The passes were arranged at reception. They spoke great English and were very friendly. We enjoyed our stay very much and will be happy to return."  - Trip Advisor 
  • "Even though this hotel hasn't got all the facilities in your room as others it is a brilliant stay. Located about 600m from the centre of town and only about 50m from a train station it is ideal. The rooms are very comfortable, large, great bathroom and the views are to die for. We had room 109 with a view of Mont Blanc and other mountains & a glacier- who needs a TV when you have that. Great balcony to sit and drink champagne. If you want a TV there is one in the lounge. No fridge but staff were only too happy to put our champagne in the fridge down stairs. Staff were all extremely helpful, spoke great English and were a pleasure to deal with. We chose to have full board and I'd recommend it. The meals were delicious, plenty of it and even though there are no doubt great restaurants in town why bother when it is so good where you are staying. We will be back!" - Trip Advisor
