Very friendly greeting, choice of tables either in side or out. Clean well presented. Service very good, food great. Good wine list and reasonable prices. If I had one complaint it would be that the meal was a little expensive.

Having journeyed from Annecy to Chamonix to Mont Blanc and then completed the climb up to the hotel through the magnificent Vercors time off at Col de la Machine proved most welcome. A friendly welcome, clean, comfortable and good food: what more could you want? Satisfied customers. Thank you, Naomi and Richard

They could also not explain the content, since they obviously were not able to speak english. We decided to sign it, and found out later that we had to... More

This hotel sits right at the top of one of the world's great driving roads that winds up the side of a near-vertical plateau just west of the French Alps. The place is so remote that it was a center for partisan activity during WWII, since the French could see the Germans coming for miles. Shortly after D-Day, the French... More
