About Haute-Savoie

All our Haute-Savoie collections:

Haute-Savoie is a pretty alpine slither of France, in between Switzerland, which is across Lake Geneva to the north, Mont Blanc and Italy to the east and Savoie to the south. Annecy is the regional capital, and definitely one of the best places to stay in the Haute-Savoie region if you’re searching for a peaceful, lakeside retreat. However the ski resorts of Chamonix, Morzine and La Clusaz are possibly better known.

Evian, home of bottled water, is also in the Haute-Savoie region. As is the pretty traditional French alpine town of Samoëns. This department is also known for its traditional, rural villages, very different from the cosmopolitan France you find when you visit Paris. These vary even within the area, from high alpine hamlets to the pretty resorts on the shores of Lac Leman (or Lake Geneva).

The Dukes of Savoy traditionally owned this land, and had their seat on Lake Annecy, so there are some extremely beautiful chateaux around the lake - note the turrets poking out from the lush green landscape as you arrive. Annecy also has a beautiful old town.

There’s a strong local culture, with people identifying themselves as Savoyard, rather than just French. As well as offering a rich cultural experience, this also means the cuisine has some definite local treasures. The Fondue Savoyard is one, that bubbling pot of delicious cheese and white wine, plus Raclette comes from the Haute-Savoie, and the almost as cheesy tartiflette, made with delicious Reblochon.

And of course there are the mountains and their ski resorts, culminating in Mont Blanc. So much has been said about how spectacular this region is that it’s difficult to do it justice, but trust us, you’ll want to see. And it’s probably equally spectacular come summer or winter, and just as epic a terrain to experiece on foot or on wheels as it is on skis.

Just don't forget to plan well ahead, especially if you're going skiing. The best places to stay in the Haute Savoie get booked up well in advance.

The Best Places to Stay in the Haute-Savoie region

For Mont Blanc

  • If you’re looking for spectacular views of Mont Blanc, Au Coeur du Village is a great five star choice. A stunning, 57 room chalet with elegant, wooden clad rooms and sumptuous decor, Au Coeur du Village also has a full service spa, a cigar room and a restaurant with an excellent fusion menu.
  • Le Labrador's balconies open right onto the golf course - and behind it Mont Blanc - so it's a good choice for a summer visit to Chamonix. Its 35 rooms and three suites are comfortable and affordable.
  • Five stars worth of grand 19th Century hotel renovation, the Hotel Mont Blanc in Chamonix is a luxuriously chic option with a very Bond-esque bar.

For winter sports

  • La Bergerie is a traditional alpine chalet in Morzine, with stunning views and all the modern amenities you might need. There are 27 rooms, plus a cozy bar with a big fireplace. There’s an outdoor pool - heated and open all year - and plenty to do in summer or winter.
  • Hotel Oustalet is a charmingly traditional Chamonix hotel with a chalet feel. Just a few steps from the Aiguille du Midi cable car, this hotel also has lovely, sunny terraces.
  • Also in Chamonix, Le Jeu de Paume has a traditional alpine lodge vibe, with woody decor, lots of roaring fires and generous leather armchairs. This hotel also has its own mini après-ski scene, and a restaurant with a reputation for being one of the best in the Chamonix valley.

  • The Chateau de Coudree is a wonderful 12th Century castle in an idyllic location facing Lake Geneva. There are 19 rooms, decorated opulently, with wood panelling, antiques and delicate wall coverings. There’s also an award-winning restaurant and bar.

  • Yoann Conte is also on Lake Annecy, an eight room restaurant with rooms with two Michelin stars. The interiors are stunning with a luxurious alpine feel and you’re beautifully secluded from the outside world.

For families

  • There are some good options for families on Lake Annecy, Le Cottage Bise, for example, which is is hardly a cottage. This stunning 35 room hotel is an oasis of comfort and luxury, with contemporary rooms, an outdoor pool, an extensive spa and a cocktail terrace overlooking the lake.

The best value places to stay in the Haute Savoie region

  • La Ferme du Cupelin is a charming restaurant with rooms in St Gervais Les Bains, with easy access to the huge surrounding skiing area. There are seven chalet style rooms and a superb restaurant. Standard doubles start from as little as €85 per night.
  • Hotel Eden in Chamonix is a steal whether you're coming in summer or winter. Simple rooms and self catering apartments suit couples, small groups or families and you're a stone's throw from La Flegere cable car. Doubles start from as little as €97 per night.
