Contemporary and retro – two words that shouldn’t go together, yet the Héliopic combines them magnificently. In a prime location 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, with the resort shuttle stopping right outside and the pedestrianised 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 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.

View on map

The Hotel l’Héliopic 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 other ski lifts stops outside.
