One of the pivotal features of this stunning hotel is the panoramic unobstructed views across the resort and towards snowy peaks, including from the restaurant. It really makes for a spectacular meal, whether it be breakfast or dinner.
The restaurant ‘Les Terrasses du Rif Briant’ allows for watching the sunrise at breakfast (weather permitting and if you’re up early enough!) while enjoying a regional and traditional menu. The ‘Chartreuse’ bar, with its cosy and relaxing atmosphere, has an extensive drinks menu with a choice of fine wines and traditional or signature cocktails. The roaring open fire is sure to keep you warm on those chilly nights.
Facilities also include the 350m2 Pure Altitude Spa where you can relax and unwind after a long day of skiing and activities.
