The hotel has been lovingly and stylishly transformed from a mountain refuge into a cosy, comfortable hotel providing all modern amenities, whilst retaining all its authenticity, with its austere granite exterior, its rustic alpine décor and its mountain atmosphere. In summer, the hotel provides a very practical starting point for a number of interesting walks. A truly unique experience!
The Terminal Neige Refuge du Montenvers is offered on a B&B basis. Another lunch option, two minutes’ walk away, and under the same management, is the Panoramique Mer de Glace Bistrot, where traditional and gourmet cuisine is served on a panoramic terrace with stunning views of the Mer de Glace.
