Chamonix: makeover at the Prieuré
The Prieuré is a 3-star chalet-hotel in the heart of the mythical “high-mountain town.” Inaugurated in 1960 by the Morand family, it aims to be a friendly stopover before or after the ascension of a summit or simply a “haven” for calm lovers. It is called The Prieuré, in a nod to the name of the village center in the Middle Ages. Now completely re-designed by two architects from Chamonix, the hotel has 97 rooms, the decor combining wood and contemporary touches. All rooms have a balcony facing south with stunning views of the Mont Blanc! We love the Rôtissier restaurant with huge windows in straight contact with the summets! As the name suggests it, you can treat yourself with meat cooked on a spit accompanied by gratins. Local specialties: raclettes, fondues … are not to be forgotten and take the upper hand in the evening at the From Haute Savoie restaurant. A spa completes the offer of this place becoming “the place to be in Chamonix” …. A. F.-M.
