The Koh-I Nor is in fact a 105.6 carat diamond, originally from India, which was presented to Queen Victoria. It is now displayed as part of the crown jewels in the Tower of London!

To fill the void a hard day on the mountain creates, the Tartiflette at Le Cabin is a real treat. A gentle stroll back to the hotel is essential after this cheesy, creamy and meaty Savoyard staple.
