Enjoy a ski resort in the Italian Alps, close to famous Mont Blanc mountain, at the brand new Le Massif resort, with its choice of rooms and suites in the town itself, and entertainment in an Alpine chalet on the ski slopes at Plan Checrouit. Guests enjoy the services of a ski concierge and ski butler, as well as epicurean delights at the main hotel’s gourmet restaurant or steakhouse and grill. At the chalet, there’s the destination restaurant, La Loge du Massif, which is ideal for après ski entertainment and offers traditional mountain cuisine. The chalet also offers a bar and ski club with al fresco areas and private ski lockers.

This luxurious 5-Star ski hotel is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, which gives an idea of its excellence. It offers 78 rooms and suites with breathtaking views of Mont Blanc and modern Alpine-style facilities including wood, soft furnishings and every possible comfort.

Aside from 100km of ski slopes in the area that reach 2,775 m into the sky, guests can also enjoy exclusive experiences.
