Wake up surrounded by mountains, this incredibly stylish ski retreat sits in the centre of Champery, rich in charm and character. The exteriors are beautiful with wrought iron balconies and pastel-coloured panels - it swept us away before we'd stepped foot inside. The hotel doesn't disappoint, from whisky and wine tasting beside the fire to a huge panoramic window in the sauna, the Chesterfield sofas scream opulence and the wood stack walls are a dream but it's the heated outdoor pool that steals the show, embracing the mesmerising views all around it.

What we like:

  • Full spa with sauna, hammam and hot tub
  • Heated outdoor pool with mountain views
  • Insanely friendly staff, you'll feel very welcome indeed
  • The decor is beautifully designed, it's so good you can walk around silently without encountering a creaky floorboard - a testament to its quality
  • Quiet village centre location with plenty of bars and restaurants is just a short walk away

Worth knowing:

  • There's a shuttle service to take advantage of within Champery
  • Gondola to the slopes is 600 metres away, so a 10-minute walk or the shuttle
  • Spa and pool open from 10am till 10pm
