CLOSED ANNUALLY: Open all year round

THE STORY: Recently taken over and renovated by the hotel group Charm & More, Le Cerf Amoureux is the most perfect Savoyard chalet imaginable. Anything but an Alpine cliché, the décor gently whizzes down the slopes of a sober aesthetic: paneled walls, luxurious materials, vintage objects, carefully studied light… On the basement level, relax in the very trendy spa with a jacuzzi and lounge beds that are perfect for some après-ski TLC. On the ground floor, you can grab a drink, socialize and read by the fire. And in the ultra-cozy upstairs area, enjoy the spacious bedrooms where you won’t trip over your skis, all equipped with private balconies and views of the mountains. Another clear competitive advantage: the two suites have their own fireplaces. Rooms starting at €170 a night.

TOILETRIES: Soap, shampoo and body wash by Sentier des Alpes, a very fine brand.
INTERNET: Wifi (free).
BREAKFAST: €15 (unless it’s included in one of the packages available), mostly made with local products: coffee or tea, fruit juice, bread, viennoiseries, cakes, fruit, cereal; charcuterie, cheese and eggs for an additional €5.
LITTLE LUXURY: Watching a film in the hotel’s movie theater!
