One of the biggest names in après ski has decided to push the boundaries and open a hotel!
Reinventing the Savoy Palace from the inside out, the Folie Douce Hotel will bring it's eclectic mix of hospitality and entertainment to a permanent position in Chamonix.
Hitting the slopes couldn't be easier, the Savoy lift is less than a minutes walk away (giving access to the Brévant and Flégère ski area) and the ski-in/ski-out access means reaching both slopes and resort centre are just moments away.
What about the world famous après we hear you say? No less than the best with après daily from 5-8pm at the After Mountain Party Bar. DJs, dancers, singers and musicians are all on the menu and we are sure this Folie flagship will not disappoint!
If you need a break from the party, take advantage of the large spa with sauna and steam room plus the outdoor pool with fabulous views across to Mont Blanc- Yoga classes are also available for the ultimate mind and body detox.
Bar Janssen offers a laid back vibe with an extensive cocktail menu, there's also a children's club (pay locally 4-12yrs) which includes everything from ski tuition, movie nights and mountain excursions.
Primarily offered on a bed & breakfast basis, there's opportunity to explore Chamonix by night and enjoy the fabulous range of restaurants on offer. Alternatively, half-board meals are available to pre-book and can be taken in the Le Petite Cuisine, offering a mixed menu of Savoyard and Italian food. There are 2 additional restaurants on site, La Fruitiere is a traditional french gourmet restaurant or Le Kiosque which offers quick and delicious street food (both pay locally).
There are two grades of rooms available, 3* Access rooms and 4* Premium rooms (spa access included).
