Hotel Les Lanchers
If none of the hotels in Chamonix take your fancy, escape to Les Lanchers: it may be small but it’s perfectly formed with 90 recently renovated rooms and a quiet location in Les Praz by the Swiss border.
Owner Jon Rogers has created a real boutique beauty that ticks all the right boxes when it comes to charm, comfort and indeed cuisine. The Rendezvous restaurant is the hotel’s undisputed crowning glory, and is presided over by Burgundian head chef Jean-Yves; try his fabulous French fare together with local Savoyard specialities, either on set menus or à la carte.
While the hotel may not be in the hub of things, the Flegere cable car is just a two-minute walk away for quick access to the slopes. Indeed, Les Lanchers is the perfect place to hunker down for those seeking a bit of a peace and quiet.
