L'Aiguille Grive Chalets Hôtel
NUMBER OF ROOMS: 6 chalets with 4 bedrooms, plus 11 additional rooms
CLOSED ANNUALLY: Open from December 17th, 2016 to April 29th, 2017, and from July 1st to August 31st, 2017
THE STORY: At 1,800 meters above sea level, amongst the slopes, these 180 m2 chalet-hotels (minimum!) aren’t actually all that expensive: €190 a night per person, if there are eight people, breakfast and dinner included. Perfect for avoiding a trip to the grocery store, making the most of time with friends (twelve maximum) and the skiable terrain (425 slope kilometres). Accessible by jeeps equipped for the snow, L’Aiguille Grive also has the advantage of being near the Les Arcs village. In short, an excellent spot for a ski trip, that offers, additionally, for the solitary wolves, hotel rooms for two at €380 a night for half-board (€255 for a single room in the off-season).
TOILETRIES: L’Occitane soap, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner.
INTERNET: Free (wifi).
BREAKFAST: Included — continental buffet served in the big dining room of the main chalet with viennoiseries, bread, cereals, crepes, omelette, charcuteries, fruit juices and hot drinks.
MINI-BAR: No, but there’s an espresso machine, an electric teapot and tea in the chalets.
LITTLE LUXURY: The uninterrupted view of Mont Blanc from the balconies! Or for those who are pragmatic and easily chilled, the ski room with shoe warmers…
