THE STORY: Expect smooth running for your ski trip when booking a stay at this gigantic blonde wood chalet dreamt up by the Liege entrepreneur René Baudinet, with a notched roof that evokes the jagged mountains. Standing tall in the Vallée des Belleville where the historic Alp hotel used to be, the Hôtel Lodji has already established itself as an XXLuxe benchmark for alpine accommodations. There’s a big lounge with velvet armchairs for snuggling up around the fire, a bar (designed by the interior designer Kevin Bona) made even bigger with a 700 m2 terrace ideal for raising a glass at the end of the day, a game room for the kids (complete with tipis and caravans), a spa that’s as good as anything on the other side of the Swiss border… everything you could need for a truly stellar vacation! Rested and relaxed skiers can catch some shut-eye in one of the 47 stylish bedrooms with unfinished wood, fleece blankets and vintage skis, all of which are equipped with private balconies overlooking the snow-covered peaks…. And what beautiful mountains they are! Double rooms starting at €300 a night.

BREAKFAST: There’s a buffet (starting at €18) with coffee, tea, fresh fruit juice, bread, butter, jam, honey, viennoiseries, French toast, fruit salad, local cheeses, fresh eggs, charcuterie, etc.
TOILETRIES: Laboratoires Roig soap, shampoo and care products.
LITTLE LUXURY: Opt for one of the 12 Deluxe rooms, which boast private Jacuzzis on their balconies, so you can splash around in the cold air!
