Chamonix’s Hotel Les Lanchers Opens for Ski Season After €1.3m Upgrade (10-Nov-10)

The Hotel Les Lanchers in Chamonix is ready to re-open..

The Hotel Les Lanchers in Chamonix is ready to re-open following a €1.3m refurbishment of its bedrooms, restaurant and facilities.

The hotel, which dates back nearly a century, is located two minutes walk from the Flégère cable car, and has built up a reputation for fine food, comfortable accommodation and personal service. The new investment is designed to build on this, enhancing the rooms and facilities, while retaining the warmth and welcome that has made it one of Chamonix’s best-loved hotels.

With views of Mont Blanc, the hotel now includes 19 fully refurbished en-suite bedrooms, including five superior rooms with bathrooms, and a specially equipped disabled bedroom, with lift access to all rooms. Facilities including the lounge bar, sauna, terrace, boot and drying room, and ski storage room have also been re-designed to enhance the guest experience. The hotel refurbishment project was designed by architect, Christophe de Laage.

Les Lanchers’ renowned Rendezvous Restaurant, popular with locals and guests, has a reputation for serving fine food made with fresh local ingredients. Chef Jean-Yves Bourgeois comes from Burgundy and creates traditional French, Savoyard and vegetarian dishes including rabbit pâté, tartiflette, fondue Savoyard, succulent steaks, fish and home made desserts.

Jonathan Rogers, who owns Hotel Les Lanchers with his wife Celine, says, “The refurbishment has been extensive and has enhanced all of the facilities, but throughout it we wanted to retain the welcoming atmosphere that many of our guests return to year after year.

Hotel Les Lanchers has also been selected as part of the bid for the Winter Olympic Games Annecy 2018. , the hotel offers easy access to the Flégère/Brevent ski area and beyond. The area has an enviable snow record, with extensive slopes for all levels of skier and boarder and numerous mountain restaurants for a relaxing ‘chocolat chaud’.

Prices for a three-night ski break at Hotel Les Lanchers start from 78 Euros per person, based on two- people sharing a double room, including breakfast, afternoon tea and three-course dinner. Transfers can be arranged for 30 Euros per person from Geneva airport. Flights are not included.
