Why so chic?
Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
Nestled in the heart of the French Alps, Le Faucigny is a charming boutique hotel with a contemporary ski lodge feel. Cosy, cool-toned and rustic, the Chic Retreat is an inviting den to warm up in after a day on the slopes.
Located in the centre of Chamonix, you’re close a stone’s throw from all of the bars and restaurants without it being too noisy (although to guarantee peace and quiet, ensure you’re not street facing). You’re fantastically located for skiing too, just 100m from the ski bus shuttle service which leads to Les Grands Montets, Les Houches and Le Tour.
In the afternoons, an afternoon tea is served including hot drinks and cookies. Breakfast is also served in the mornings, featuring delicious locally-produced jams ‒ excellent fuel for a day on the slopes.
Given the hotel’s beautiful surroundings, it’s definitely worth requesting a room with a view of Mont Blanc. All 28 rooms are cosily decorated with greys, wooden furnishings and comfy beds. Bear in mind that some rooms do come up rather small, so consider a bigger double if you’re travelling heavy.
Skiing can be pretty tiring, so what better way to unwind than a trip for the small, but perfectly formed spa. Laze in the jacuzzi, or soothe those tired muscles in the steamy sauna. There are also a range of massages available.
Aside from the spa, the hotel also has bikes for guests to use, in addition to a lovely library to curl up with a book in.
