Welcome to

Hotel The Originals La Chemenaz (ex Hotel-Chalet de Tradition)

Meet the Gauthier and their 4-star chalet in Les Contamines Montjoie, Haute Savoie

The warmth of wood, a chalet’s charm, and the exhilarating feeling of being on top of the world... there’s something magical about the mountains in Les Contamines-Montjoie. Welcome to Pascale and François Gauthier's hotel.

“First and foremost, our hotel is a family chalet. Our clients feel at home, so their experience here is one of a kind” .

Although Pascale and François are hoteliers, first and foremost they are family. And this hotel is their chalet. An honest living space which oozes happiness and the simple pleasures of life: for this couple, who were looking for “human connections” and “independence”, found their happy place in Les Contamines-Montjoie in Haute Savoie, and they love sharing this happiness with their guests at the Hotel The Originals La Chemenaz. Faced with the majesty of the mountains, everlasting snow and Mont Blanc, a visit to this 4-star hotel is a dream to be shared, and an experience unlike any other. Its 40 rooms are little havens of cosiness with a Savoyard charm, with wonderful views of the landscape. Pascale and François made their dream come true; now, they want to do the same for their guests.

DINING

Hotel The Originals La Chemenaz (ex Hotel-Chalet de Tradition)

For a more inviting atmosphere, Pascale and François chose to open a restaurant of their own. This perfectly complements a typical Savoyard bar. A majestic fireplace makes this a wonderfully cosy place for you to relax. And to get your day on or around Mont Blanc off to the right start, Pascale and François offer a hearty breakfast of local and homemade food. The cheese from the Coopérative du Val d’Arly is definitely one to try...

LA TRABLA

Pascale and François wanted a welcoming restaurant, just like their hotel. The food here is contemporary, inventive, hearty, and pays homage to classic Savoyard dishes. It is also the perfect place to try some of the region’s traditional food. Not to be missed are the raclette, fondue, reblochonnade and tartiflette. Not to mention Pascale and François’ favourite, the homemade pasta (ravioli with a mushroom fondue). And the homemade smoked salmon!

EXPERIENCES

Hotel The Originals La Chemenaz (ex Hotel-Chalet de Tradition)

The Hotel The Originals La Chemenaz sits at the heart of a region that is full of surprises: the Haute Savoie. The Mont Blanc massif guarantees wonderful adventures, full of feeling and emotion.

MOUNTAIN OUTINGS

Les Contamines-Montjoie is a beautiful place from which to get out and about in the Mont Blanc massif all year round. A walk to the Joly pass offers some fantastic scenery. At an altitude of 1989m, the view over the Mont Blanc massif, the Beaufortain valley, the Girotte lake and the Aravis mountain range will take your breath away. It’s even more beautiful from the Aiguille Croche, but to get here you need to be a seasoned hiker.

RELAXATION AND WELLBEING

Here, Pascale and François have created a cosy little world of relaxation: the perfect place to recharge your batteries in a little slice of heaven. During the summer, guests can unwind and enjoy the fresh mountain air in the south-facing garden and heated pool. A wellness area with a sauna and jacuzzi is open for guests to enjoy all year round, before heading out to conquer a new day of mountain exploration.

ALL YOU NEED TO SKI

Perched up at 1164m, skiers will love the slopes at the Les Contamines-Montjoie ski resort, which stretch for hundreds of kilometres and go up to 2,500m. The village is also part of the Évasion Mont Blanc ski area, which offers 445km of slopes across 6 resorts in the Mont Blanc massif including Saint-Gervais, Megève, Saint-Nicolas-de-Véroce, Combloux and La Giettaz.

SPORTS AND LEISURE ACTIVITIES

During the summer, Les Contamines-Montjoie is heaven on earth for lovers of the mountains and the great outdoors. There are over 50 different sports on offer here, right on the doorstep of the Hotel The Originals La Chemenaz. Les Contamines nature reserve is also nearby. Pascale and François particularly recommend a hike to the Notre Dame de La Gorge chapel along the GR5, which passes right by the hotel. The Tour du Mont Blanc (TMB) is also an option. Mountain bikes are available from the hotel. Guests can also enjoy a relaxing day at the Pontet leisure centre, 5 minutes from the chalet.
