Stay at Armancette
Wake to a view of mountain bliss, in this tranquil boutique resort boasting pure Alps luxury. Breakfast, too, is a spoiling event, as you choose between buffet-style, continental or fresh pastries and cakes from the on-site tearoom. The rest of the day transpires as you see fit.So what’s it going to be: an action-packed afternoon whisked away to explore the slopes, or a leisurely day on the terrace accompanied by Mont Blanc? Or perhaps both, with an exclusive hot tub soak to follow and soothe all aches. Revitalised, you make your way to dinner, where the ambience is intimate and authentic dishes arrive one by one.
Nestled within the sleepy hamlet of Saint-Nicolas-de-Véroce, the hotel enjoys direct access to the slopes with a ski lift only 100 metres away. Getting here from Chamonix takes just over half an hour by car. Meanwhile, Geneva Airport is only an hour’s drive away.
Only 17 rooms make up this boutique complex. Abodes range from more basic 2-bedrooms to family rooms sleeping over 3. The junior suites are especially gorgeous with their wood-induced design. Alternatively, three upscale chalets are also available nearby.
Who is it for
This is a quaint establishment to be enjoyed by both couples and families. Duplex category stays cater for up to 6 people across two floors, making them particularly ideal for large parties or those who just prefer more space.
