The Best Places to Stay in Savoie
- Boasting one of Méribel’s most respected restaurants, Hotel Le Grand Coeur is an all round winner with luxurious rooms, and amazing service besides the gastronomic delights.
- The tradition and authentic feel of L’Oree du Bois will take those fortunate enough to be staying here back into the original spirit of Méribel: no unnecessary pampering, just dignified charm. The piste side location will quickly get you and the tots into the swing of things.
- Mineral Lodge is a lovely little chalet in the Vanoise Valley, just below Les Arcs. It has just five rooms, but everything you need to enjoy either a summer or winter break. They’ll do you a packed lunch and dinner by arrangement, and they’ll also help you sort out your bike and ski hire.
- Hotel Le Kaïla is the undisputed king of luxury in Méribel. With rooms so pampering you won’t want to leave, you might question whether there’s any need for a spa. But don’t worry, the next level of horizontal is only a floor away.
- The Chateau de la Tour du Puits is a beautiful, ivy clad château surrounded by a rural landscape. There are seven charming rooms with wonderful views across the gardens, plus lovely original features. Then there are all the modern comforts you might need, like a spa, gym, outdoor pool and an elegant bar. There’s also a restaurant serving great regional cuisine.
- One of the newest and best places to stay in Courchevel for luxury is Le Strato. It's not just five star - it has a gastronomic restaurant and gorgeous pool and spa. Even their fireplaces are designer, and when you finish your supper your gloves and boots are returned to you pre-warmed.
- The Château des Allues is a haven for foodies who love the great outdoors. There are just two bedrooms, so it’s private and peaceful, but the restaurant is quite something, fed by the château's own huge organic kitchen garden. There’s also a beautiful non-edible garden, and as well as workshops for foodies the Château also hosts workshops for gardeners. The decor is comfortable but quirky.
- If you’re looking for something a bit more modern, try Les Saint Peres, a nine room, lodge-style hotel with cosy but tasteful decor and amazing views of the surrounding countryside. There’s also a great outdoor pool.
