Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

La Grave

Esf de la Meije
Need to brush up on your ski skills? Head to Esf de la Meije to book a couple of lessons to help you get up to speed.
Skiers Lodge/Hotel des Alpes
What can we say? Skiers Lodge/Hotel des Alpes offers some of the best accommodation in Le Grave, albeit a little basic. But, steeped in history, it's fabulous nevertheless.
Au Vieux Guide
Those seeking hearty mountain food and fabulous wine to wash it all down with should drop by Au Vieux Guide; it is here that stylish skiiers come to relax and unwind after a hard day on the slopes.
Chez Baptiste
Take a drive out to Chez Baptiste and sample the exquisite culinary delights on offer; be sure to book a table, as the reservations book is always fit-to-bursting.
Hotel Le Serac
Ski Extreme
Serious skiers should drop by Ski Extreme for equipment and more; if you can't find it here, you can't find it anywhere.
Le Castillan Spa
Le Castillan Spa proves that size isn't everything with a small but incredible stylish space that boasts both a sauna and a gym.
Le Castillan
With a boisterous bar and a stunning in-house restaurant, who cares about rooms? Fortunately Le Castillan has it all.
Les Chalets de la Meije
The K2 Pub
The K2 Pub is where the party's at apres-ski; cocktails are the thing here, so indulge in one or two and hit the floorboards for some serious dancing.
Meije Massage
While Meije Massage doesn't offer spa facilities, it does offer massage - and incredibly good ones at that.
Philippe Andre
With 25 years of experience behind him, it's hardly surprising Philippe Andre's books are fit-to-bursting with avid ski bunnies.
Hotel Le Serac
Fabulous French fare and a wine list to please even the most discerning connoisseur make Hotel Le Serac a must-eat.
Les Enfetchores House
Owned by the same people at Les Enfetchores Appartments, Les Enfetchores House is a two-floored wonder that sleeps a group of six for the ultimate post-ski house party. Hedonism just found a home.
Edelweiss Hotel
With fabulous French fare on its mouthwatering menu and a wine line extensive enough to please even the most discerning drinker, it's hardly surprising that the Edelweiss Hotel is one of our favourite places to eat (and indeed drink).
Pelle Lang
A legend among ski guides, Pelle pulls in the punters with expert knowledge of the area and a cutting-edge coaching style.
La Lauzette
We love La Lauzette; a suitably spacious apartment that has lashings of style and more superstar fixtures and fittings than you can shake a large ski pole at.
Les Chalets de la Meije
You're a superspa, that is what you are. Enter the spa at Les Chalets de la Meije, a spa for non-residents and residents alike. Amazing. Go.
