Our accommodation

Our lodge provides modern, great value hostel style accommodation and holidays in the wonderful mountain town of Chamonix.

The property was fully renovated a few years ago and has had the décor and furnishings further updated more recently to reflect our shift to hostel style accommodation. Our simple but stylish alpine interior creates a relaxing setting with wooden rustic features throughout, and is the perfect mountain retreat for your time in Chamonix.

Public areas

We have a large fully equipped kitchen area enabling you to cook whatever you desire any time of day or night (within reason of course). Right next to the kitchen we have the dining area where breakfast can be taken or other meals throughout the day and evening. We find our guests also use this as a social area too.

On the first floor we have a large communal open plan living space with plenty of comfortable leather sofas to relax on after an active day in the mountains. Separate to this is our cinema room where you can switch off at the end of the day in front of a film.

For those of you who want to rid your body of the aches and pains from your day’s activities we have an outdoor hot tub and sauna, where you can relax in true alpine style under the stars with the most amazing mountain vistas as your backdrop.

Complimentary services

Our hostel style accommodation is sold on a bed and breakfast basis, meaning we provide you with a complimentary, simple continental breakfast every morning, to kick start your day of activities.

We provide access to the internet to post those shots from your awesome powder day on Facebook, or to catch up with family and friends at home, or to watch a film in the evenings. Unlike a lot of international 4/5 star hotels we don’t charge for our Wifi. Complimentary Wifi is available throughout the property in all rooms.

If you are departing later in the day, then once checked out of your room we are able to store your bags and equipment in our secure storage area. Just ask at reception to confirm this before your day of departure.
