La Folie Douce Hotel


La Folie Douce Hotel Chamonix is located opposite the Savoy Ski Lift in in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, a 2-minute walk from the centre of Chamonix.  The hotel’s got a grand Belle Époque exterior but the inside is unexpected and exciting – exposed concrete mixes with crystal chandeliers, wooden palm trees lean over velvet sofas and vintage knick-knacks dot the walls.

Bars and restaurants are a highlight here – after all, the Folie Douce name is famous for its 3 restaurants and multiple bars on site. A daily breakfast is included in your stay and you can take your pick from two à la carte restaurants in the evenings or grab fresh pizza from La Piazza hut on the terrace.  On an evening, Bar Janssen is the place to be for cocktails and beers and DJ’s, singers and acrobats are often on hand to get the party mood going after your big race!

Squeeze in a work-out or try a yoga class at the Feel Good Club Sports Club, or recharge your batteries at the Feel Good Spa, with its 18-meter outdoor swimming pool – set against the backdrop of Mont Blanc – plus a collection of saunas, hammam, mountain-facing terrace and seven massage cabins.

On the Mont-Blanc and the Brévent side, Premium rooms offer breathtaking views of the Alpine peaks.  Rooms are cosy and mountain charm meets contemporary elegance, featuring neutral colours, light wood and big windows.  They also include access to the Spa.
