Contemporary and retro – two words that shouldn’t go together, yet the Hotel l'Héliopic combines them magnificently. In a prime location in Chamonix next to the Aiguille du Midi lift, the hotel spa will blow you away if the views haven’t already done so.

Two interlinked four storey chalets facing Mont Blanc make up the Hotel Heliopic, with the resort shuttle stopping right outside and the pedestrianised Chamonix centre moments away. Inside it’s rather contemporary; the hotel has a 1960’s elegance where dashes of bright colours mix with retro mountain chic.

The Nuxe Spa is definitely the highlight, with huge bay windows overlooking the Mont Blanc Valley. The Pool is the focal point and hanging designer egg chairs surround the fire pit – it’s easy to lose hours in here. With the water wall, Jacuzzi, sauna, hammam, ice grotto, treatment rooms, cold bath and even a tea room.

The Hotel l’Héliopic is simply a fantastic base to explore everything Chamonix has to offer.

What we like

  • Brand new for 2018 restaurant Akashon is a welcomed addition
  • The pool is awesome with egg chairs around the fire pit
  • Location next to Aiguille du Midi is perfect, bus stop outside and town centre just up the road

Worth knowing

  • The Aiguille du Midi is an off-piste/sightseeing lift with no piste access
  • As with most of Chamonix you will have to catch the bus to the slopes
  • There are adults only times in the pool and spa

View on map

The Hotel l’Héliopic, Chamonix sits next to the Aiguille du Midi cable car, where you can travel to the top of Mont Blanc and see the stunning views across the Alps or tackle the famous Vallee Blanche – an advanced off-piste itinerary. We highly recommend you take a guide if you’re planning on doing this. The hotel is only a short walk from the pedestrianised centre and the shuttle to the various ski areas stops right outside.
