Chamonix: Hotel Mont Blanc
For its complete renovation, the Hotel Mont Blanc, beautifully situated in the heart of Chamonix, has offered itself the pen of the famous interior designer Sybille de Margerie …. with ease! With the talent we know it, she succeeded in respecting the history of this legendary place and century-old while bringing serious modern touches. This 5-star now offers 40 rooms including 18 junior suites and two suites of 75 m2 who dress in Savoyard-inspired wood and a panel of warm tones. They all face a magnificent panorama of mountains. In the public areas around the monumental staircase with beautiful iron work, various areascan be used to meet after a walk in the mountains or a day of skiing. We like the Spa by Clarins, which spreads on 250 m2 with a steam room, a sauna and a shower experience. The beautiful heated outdoor pool in summer and winter, boasts with a stunning view of the Mont Blanc. In the charming restaurant Matafan, we enjoy the cuisine of Chef Mickey Bourdillat who highlights recipes according the seasons. Finally be aware that the restaurant’s name comes from a famous potato pancake that « kills hunger “! A. F.-M.
