Enjoying an exceptional, breathtaking location right by the Mer de Glace, at a height of 6725 feet, opposite the Aiguille des Drus, at the top of the Montenvers cog railway (a twenty minute ride from Chamonix), the historic old Grand Hotel du Montenvers, has been completely refurbished.
Reopening on 1st July 2017, 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 half board basis: a buffet breakfast and 3 course dinner (excluding drinks), featuring local specialities, are taken in the Restaurant du Montenvers (open for lunch and dinner). 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.
