The most beautiful luxury hotels in the mountains
Hotel Ily la Rosière: the new 4-star boutique hotel that offers the possibility of skiing in Italy!
Installed since last year in the building that once housed the Hyatt Centric, the ILY (meaning “I Love You” hotel) has become the new trendy address in the very popular resort of La Rosière. The result of an association between the Eoden company, which specializes in renewable energy, and the Beyond Places hotel group, the establishment cultivates a spirit that is at once family-oriented, modern and bohemian. Not surprising since its new owner is none other than Guillaume Multrier who opened the first Folie Douce hotel in Chamonix a few years ago! The common areas are exceptionally cosy and pleasant, the decoration just crazy of modernity and good taste, as for the views on the Valley, they are simply splendid. This is clearly the editor’s favorite and the mountain hotel of our dreams!
Add to this the fact that La Rosière, with its southern exposure, is one of the sunniest ski resorts in the Alps and that it offers the unique possibility of skiing in Italy or tasting excellent fresh pasta on the slopes, this guarantees you a successful winter or spring ski vacation! As for gastronomy, the ILY le Bonami’s restaurant offers skiers a generous and eclectic cuisine, which gives pride of place to local products and is part of a philosophy of sustainability and short circuits. There is also a Pure Altitude spa with 3 Jacuzzis and a vast 16m long swimming pool, offering a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains. The foot we say to you!
L’Armancette : a 5 star mountain hotel in Saint-Gervais-les-Bains
Located on the heights of Saint-Gervais, the Armancette hotel cultivates the style and spirit of a chic and intimate refuge, far from the usual alpine clichés. Its 17 rooms and suites are entirely decorated with wood, precious fabrics and Italian design furniture to create a chic and cosy atmosphere. To eat, guests can choose between the Mont Joly bistro or the Table d’Armante, where chef Julien Darcy revisits alpine flavors in a gastronomic version. In a mineral and refined decor, the spa invites you to a real moment of relaxation, especially from its heated outdoor pool, open to the Dômes de Miage and the Mont Blanc massif.
Le Coucou: our favorite mountain hotel in Méribel
Head for Les Allues to discover the coziest nest in Méribel. Nestled at the foot of the Rond-Point des pistes, the Coucou Méribel stands out thanks to its chic and relaxed contemporary atmosphere, the signature of architect Pierre Yovanovitch. This approach is evident in the common areas as well as in the 55 rooms and suites and the 2 independent chalets (ultra luxury) that make up the hotel’s offer. A very good mention for the multitude of services offered to clients, including a ski-room, a ski-shop, a kid’s and teen club, or a spa by Tata Harper that has nothing to envy the Parisian palaces. Finally, the food is a treat at Le Coucou, the rare and delicious meats offered by the Beefbar, or the sunny dishes of Biancaneve, the hotel’s Italian table.

With 5 stars, the hotel has a haute couture spa operated by Clarins, and a gourmet restaurant where you can discover a beautiful seasonal cuisine inspired by the flavors of the Alps, the Aosta Valley and the Mediterranean basin.

With direct access to the ski lifts, the hotel in the middle of the mountain has a ski shop that will delight ski enthusiasts. After a day on the slopes, guests can relax in the large wellness area and enjoy the Pure Altitude brand of mountain plant treatments. As for gastronomy, there is something for everyone thanks to the hotel’s three restaurants: the Casa Alta and its transalpine menu, the Laiterie and its raclettes and fondues, or the 2mille3, where you can enjoy a nice grill while taking in the view of the peaks.
The Royal Evian because Evian-les-Bains is very close to the ski resorts!
The Royal is the jewel in the crown of the Evian group and can boast one of the most beautiful views of Lake Geneva in the region.

With Thollon les Mémises and Bernex only 15 minutes away from the hotel, ski lovers will be delighted and it is worth mentioning that children are entirely taken care of by a shuttle and instructors to go skiing during the day…and allow parents to take a break and relax! Golfers will also find their happiness on the two courses of the Evian Resort, which hosts the Amundi Evian Championship tournament every year. In addition to the quality of its facilities (swimming pool, gym and spa with marine course), the Royal Evian is also an exceptional gastronomic destination thanks to its starred restaurant, Les Fresques, where Patrice Vander pays a vibrant tribute to the Savoyard terroir every evening.

As for gastronomy, you can enjoy a raclette revisited as a croustade at the Table du Coeur, or a Supreme of black chicken in a salt and thyme crust at the gastronomic restaurant Le Cinq, directed by Vincent Deforce.
Les Barmes de l’Ours, a beautiful mountain hotel in Val d’Isère
Located at the foot of the famous Bellevarde Olympic track, the Relais & Châteaux Les Barmes de l’Ours invites its travelers to a real trip around the world, without leaving Val d’Isère.
