The calm of a mountain village, authentic regional flavours, the comfort of a real chalet. Welcome to the Trincaz family's hotel.
"We like to provoke joy, to feel that our guests are happy and comfortable in our hotel."
The Trincaz family and the Hotel Chalet-Hôtel Les Gentianettes, The Originals Relais share a story of passion. "It goes back generations," explains Nicolas Trincaz, Nathalie and Claude's son. The entire family works to make this 4-star hotel a place of sharing and excellence: "We do everything we can to meet all of our customers' expectations and requirements, however demanding," Nicolas adds. Hospitality, comfort and service are the priority in this elegant hotel. The authenticity of the chalet, decorated with wood and noble materials, the quality of the restaurants (Claude is an excellent chef), the 36 rooms with their cosy mountain atmosphere provoke a real sense of contentment. This is enhanced by a superb well-being area.
Warm tones, wood, noble materials, chalet ambiance: the 34 rooms designed by the Trincaz family are real cocoons, cosy and perfectly practical. They have all the essential equipment for comfort, for families, friends, solo or business travellers. The balcony also provides the chance to enjoy the landscape. "We ensure that our guests enjoy total relaxation in a warm mountain atmosphere," Nicolas promises.

What our customers say
"One night "
Wonderful The best breakfast I have ever had !
"Ski trip 19th March ‘19"
Wonderful hotel in our favourite, peaceful village of La Chapelle d’Abondance in the Porte Du Soleil. Excellent staff, restaurants and spa facilities. Rooms are comfortable with nice decor and not are dated like many of the hotels in this area. The only negatives would be the unfinished appearance of the outside space for such a high standard hotel and lack of a fridge or mini bar in the rooms to keep drinks or medication cool. The outside of the hotel is fine during the winter ski season but there is very limited attractive outside areas to sit in the summer season.
"Great stay in a high quality hotel"
Hi, We enjoyed our stay at your hotel. The atmosphere was great, so was the food in your two restaurants, and the people working at the hotel were quite friendly. The only thing that made us feel really uncomfortable was your reaction about the additional insurance on the ski pass. You made us feel like we were asking you something completely abnormal, and you asked us to get it solved by ourselves. This made us feel incomfortable and made us lose precious time, because we tried to get it undone by ourselves. You could have said: 'ow, sorry about that. Didn't we explained you that?We should have done it. I will ask my son to change it'. At the end, your son managed to get it undone, but it was not a nice experience for us.
"Nice hotel, excellent breakfast."
We had a nice stay in this hotel/
