Insider's View

Indulge yourself with a 'Mont Blanc' exclusive treatment in the Spa - specially created for skiers and hikers.

Enjoy a relaxing swim in the outdoor pool and gaze up at the awesome and spectacular Mont Blanc.

Although Chamonix hosted what is now recognised as the world’s first ever winter Olympics in 1924, the games were not officially recognised as such until two years later. The games were initially referred to simply as ‘Winter Sports Week’ until the International Olympic Committee gave them their full approval in 1926.

Two English aristrocrats discovered the Priory of Chamouni in 1741 but had no idea that the recital of their visit to this small mountain village and its glaciers, would have such an impact on the whole of Europe. Wealthy tourists came to admire the mysterious 'Mer de Glace'.

Savoyard cooking, the typical food from Chamonix, is based on a staple diet of cheese and potatoes. Produced locally in summer and easy to store during the long winter months, high in calorific value, it made for a good human fuel source!

Try out the new terrain park in Chamonix this season - it's claiming to be the biggest in Europe! The kilometer long, 100m wide park is at Le Tour and is even served by its own quad chairlift.

Description

Standing resplendent in the heart of Chamonix in the French Alps, the chic Hotel Mont Blanc has brought a new level of skiing luxury to Chamonix since it was acquired by the Taittinger family in 2013.

An ideal luxury base for skiing this hotel has been welcoming guests since the start of the 20th century and is a huge part of the history of Chamonix valley. With a prime location in the center of Chamonix, the hotel offers a haven of calm which is reflected in the elegant design of the 40 luxurious rooms and suites.

The interior is a creative triumph from an inspired collaboration between the Taittinger family and renowned interior designer Sybille de Margerie. Many original features have been retained, such as the striking central staircase and mosaic floors and alongside the contemporary colors and furnishings, the overall feel is modern and elegant.

Service is friendly, slick and discreet and the Hotel Mont Blanc team continually ensure that guests have their every need well looked after. The overriding atmosphere they have created at the hotel is cosy and supremely comfortable - perfect for a relaxing vacation.

When it comes to skiing, Chamonix has a reputation that precedes it as one of the oldest and most famous ski resorts in the world; having played host to the first ever Winter Olympics in 1924.

Nowadays it attracts skiers from all over the world who come to pit their wits against the mighty steep descents and the off-piste powder fields. The most famous these of which is the 20 km long Vallée Blanche - a rite of passage for skiers looking to tick off one of the most legendary runs in the world. The ski area itself is quite spread out covering five different mountains and stretches up the vast valley to include the village of Argentière which is the access point for Les Grand Montets. The majority of the terrain is suited to good intermediates and experts; there are a few good beginner areas but these are a little fragmented.

The hotel makes accessing these different areas easy by offering a shuttle service for guests and will arrange pick ups at the end of the ski day.

Clare Leigh (Staff)

This elegant hotel, which dates back to 1849, was renovated 2 years ago and is now a beautiful place to stay right in the heart of Chamonix.

The front-facing (south east) rooms have views of the Aiguille du Midi, while the west facing look out to the Brevent ski area.

Le Matafan restaurant offers both breakfast and dinner with many locally sourced ingredients on the menu. Breakfast will set you up for the whole day; there are pastries, meats and cheeses, yogurts, fresh and dried fruit as well as over 6 hot items!

Take a late evening swim in the heated outdoor pool while gazing up at the impressive mountain ranges which encompass you.

The hotel is very central; right next door to the Tourist Office. The town offers a huge array of restaurants to choose from - whether it's a quick pizza or fine dining you are after it has it all and the shopping is great too!
