This charming Savoyard hotel is located in the heart of Montchavin at an altitude of 1250m and is just a 2-minute walk from the lifts. It provides clean and homely rooms alongside an excellent friendly service.

The hotel has been furnished in traditional style using plenty of wood and bright fabrics to create a warm and welcoming mountain atmosphere.

All their cosy rooms are decorated simply and include balconies giving you a lovely view over the Monchavin village or of the Mountains. All rooms also include an LCD TV with French satellite channels, free WiFi access and a safe.

For those that prefer to self-cater, the hotel also offers a number of different sized apartments that are equipped with their own kitchen and sitting area.

For relaxation after a full day on the mountain, you can look forward to returning to the hotel and unwinding in their wellness centre which includes a jacuzzi, sauna and hammam (steam room). You can also choose to indulge in a selection of facials, treatments and wraps with their in-house beauty therapist. 

For kids, there is a specially dedicated playroom with games consoles, board games, books, crayons and paper.

If you are staying at the hotel during the winter months you'll be glad of their ski room with heated boot warmers so you can easily slide on your ski boots each morning and have toasty toes. The ski room has plenty of space to store all your equipment so it doesn't clutter up your living space.  

The hotel is open all year round so whether you prefer exploring the mountains on skis and a snowboard or on a mountain bike and by foot, this can be your perfect mountain base.

Worth knowing

The hotel is open for the winter season from mid-December to the end of April and for the summer season between early July and the beginning of September.

The Restaurant

The hotel's restaurant, Le Chaudron, is open daily for dinner from 19:00. It serves all the traditional specialities such as fondue, raclette and tartiflette. There are also a number of other dishes available such as oysters, wild boar casserole and burgers. For kids there is a two-course children's menu.

Ski Hire

When staying at the hotel, you can get a discount on certain ski hire shops nearby. 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.

Instructors & Lessons

The hotel can help you arrange ski lessons when staying here. 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 La Plagne 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.
