Armancette Hotel, Chalets & Spa

ARMANCETTE HOTEL, CHALETS & SPA

MY EXPERIENCE

Armancette Hotel, Chalets and Spa are strong believers on simple pleasures and the present moment combined with luxury and the alpine art of living are a strong value proposition. I am counting down to be able to go to visit as soon as the current situation allows.

In my view, this is the perfect holiday destination for next summer, far away from the crowds, surrounded by nature, a real privilege considering the number of services and activities that can be done in the destination and how unique and exclusive this place is.

AT A GLANCE

Above the ski resort Saint-Gervais-les-Bains, in a small mountain village named Saint-Nicolas de Véroce, one can find Armancette Hotel, Chalets & Spa, a privately owned  new property which is already a member of Leading Hotels of the World and Traveller Made.

Overlooking the Mont Blanc, located between Chamonix, the sports worldwide known mountain destination, and Megève, that could be described as charmingly understated while being chic and authentic, this 5-starred boutique hotel was opened in on 1st July 2019. To help preserve the unicity of the place, its tradition share with travellers, skiers, mountain and nature lovers from around the world, it was built at the place of the bakery of Saint Nicolas that you can still find restyled among the facilities of the Armancette hotel.

The hotel offers 17 rooms at only 100m from a chair lift, and a large range of facilities for the most demanding and guests. To complement this offer it opened three ski-in/ski-out chalets: Aster, Carline and Silène in December 2019 ideal for family holidays in summer and winter. The 4th chalet on the slopes is a luxury and exclusive Wellness Center.
