As you know, at Plaids Cocooning, we like to offer you unusual destinations and exceptional places. Today, we are telling you about the best hotels that we have identified for you for a stay in the mountains. From the most atypical to the most authentic, an overview of our favorites this season.
BETWEEN LUXURY AND TRADITION
This 4-star SPA hotel takes you to an altitude of 2000m. A high-end mountain hotel that will amaze you. Well located, in the heart of the Trois Vallées ski area, it is the start of a stunning journey. Thus, this chalet offers you a subtle alliance between the authenticity of a classic mountain chalet and the eccentricity of a luxurious hotel. This is why we have selected it among the best mountain hotels.
Explorer for a day or forever, a lover of endless nature and heart-stopping adventures...Welcome to the cradle of your most beautiful memories.
In addition to its standard rooms designed for couples, the establishment has three types of suites. The Kaya Junior Suites and Suites can accommodate up to 4 people. As for the Prestige Suites, they are designed for groups of 4 to 6 people. The smell of the wood fire, the warmth of traditional decoration...One thing is certain, at Chalet Hôtel Kaya, you will only want to stay there!
A SINGULAR DECOR
On the decor side, the interior of the Kaya has been completely revisited by architect Kristian Gavoille. With wood, leather and wool as the dominant materials, which combine harmoniously to weave a warm and comfortable cocoon. Indeed, borrowed directly from the Andes and their traditional tribes, the carpets and tapestries that adorn the Kaya invite us to travel and disconnect.
The South American colors clash with the white purity of the snow and the sheets in the rooms. This is what gives the Kaya Hotel such an assertive character.
AN EXCEPTIONAL LOCALITY
In the heart of the Avoriaz ski area, take advantage of the privileged access to the Mil8 hotel. Go on skis to discover the immensity of the Portes du Soleil area.
And that's not all ! The hotel offers quality services: sauna and swimming pools with views of the resort. After your grueling day of skiing, come and relax at the spa while enjoying the view of the slopes. And if you don’t ski, spend the day there…! Apres-ski, at Mil8, is quite a tradition. The lounge and dining areas are designed for total disconnection and communion with nature.
AN ATYPICAL DECORATION
Far from the atmosphere of traditional chalets, architect Hervé Marullaz, associated with the Obermant workshop, offers us a chic and modern version of the Alpine chalet. The four facades with their tapered lines and voluptuous curves completely stand out from the crowd. Still in this contemporary spirit, the 42 rooms and suites offer dark joinery, large woolen curtains and Japanese-style wooden panels... Enough to travel without even moving!
And what about the view from the rooms? The 360-degree orientation of the hotel allows each room to offer a different but equally surprising view. Indeed, the Mil8 rooms are an invitation to relax and let go.
He’s one of our favorites! If we selected it among the best hotels in the mountains, it is for many reasons…Firstly for its location. Indeed, located at an altitude of 2500m, it is a true white paradise which dominates the Val d'Isère valley. Thus, it is the highest hotel in the French Alps. Staying at the Refuge de Solaise means experiencing a warm getaway in the heart of nature with all your senses.
In addition, the famous Gigi restaurant recently opened there. Italian gastronomy which expresses itself in all its grandeur and generosity. But, if you are more for a simple meal, opt for the Petit refuge restaurant, which welcomes skiers from breakfast to afternoon tea.
Finally, if you want to relax after a long day of skiing, you are spoiled for choice! A SPA, a 25-meter swimming pool, two jacuzzis, two hammams, an outdoor sauna and a hairdressing salon…
A CHIC AND ART DECO STYLE
From stone walls and local wood to chic furniture covered in wool, the decoration of the Solaise refuge never ceases to surprise us. First of all, the Competition rooms feature a warm, wooded decoration. While the Olympic chambers and their houndstooth details take us decades back in time. Finally, in the Danaïdes rooms, we instantly notice the azure blue tones and notes of velvet which completely clash with the atmosphere of the place!
All rooms offer sunny terraces and large bay windows overlooking the valley. Indeed, the spirit of the place is warm and oriented towards nature. So many reasons that make it one of the best mountain hotels.
A RELAXATION PARENTHESIS
In the heart of the La Rosière resort, this 4-star hotel offers direct access to the slopes. Likewise, its south-facing exposure ensures an unobstructed view overlooking the Haute-Tarentaise valley.
As its name suggests, when it comes to relaxation, there is plenty to choose from! You will have the opportunity to test the numerous facilities: wellness area of more than 1000m2, swimming pool, hammams, saunas, whirlpool baths, fitness… There is something for everyone. Plus, even children have the right to their own paddling pool! The hotel offers rooms and apartments of all sizes and for all prices.
Finally, on the flavor side, the hotel offers two restaurants , the cozy side of the Alpagio and the panoramic view terrace of the Solario.
SOBRIETY AND COMFORT
In terms of decoration, there is no doubt, we are indeed in a mountain hotel! From the large bay windows of the rooms to the mirrored windows of the SPA, the hotel shines. So, the light is such that you won't even want to go skiing, but rather to admire the view for hours!
Likewise, the rooms offer sober and classic tones, but the materials which compose them are noble and give the room a high-end look. Here, enjoy without moderation the breathtaking view of the mountain ranges.
