Combining modernity with the past, Jean-Claude Descombes’ architecture will surprise you. Nestled at the foot of the Aiguille du Midi, facing Mont-Blanc, two 4-storey chalets were constructed with respect to both the mountain and the historic town centre. The personality of the design inspired by interior designer Leslie Gauthier has made each space unique. Stone and wood have been treated with care, the materials used are sustainable and the textures have been chosen for their comfort. The “retro-chic mountain” atmosphere gives a sense of 50s/60s-style upscale decor, with a cozy "just like at home" feeling.
The retro design continues in the guest rooms where all of the furniture is tailor-designed in pure vintage spirit, wool-broadcloth fabric curtains, chairs and convertible armchairs stand out against the oak parquet flooring.
