Find your alpine escape within the skyscraping French Alps of Saint-Gervais-les-Bains at Armancette Hotel & Chalet. Enjoy ski-in, ski-out access in the winter; a soothing spa with jaw-dropping mountain views; and the perfect aprés ski retreat.
Cozy Saint-Gervais-les-Bains, tucked among the peaks of the French Alps in the shadow of Mont Blanc, offers some of the best skiing in Europe. A short distance from the borders of both Italy and Switzerland, Saint-Gervais also boasts the most direct route to the summit of Mont Blanc—take the historic tram up to its peak for some of the best mountain views on the continent. Throughout the village, duck into charming brasseries and wine bars for aprés-ski. And just outside town, the warm waters of thermal baths beckon, a siren song for tired muscles after a day spent on the slopes in the winter or hiking in the summer.

The perfect way to soothe sore muscles after a day chasing powder, the Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc thermal baths offer warm mineral waters for the ideal aprés-ski soak—the waters spout from the heart of Mont Blanc itself.
