Le Chalet d’Adrien Verbier

In the small village of Verbier, nestled in the Swiss canton of Valais, this five-star hotel leaves both young and old with snowy and sunny memories from winter to summer. A Relais & Châteaux hotel, Chalet d’Adrien Verbier offers breathtaking views of the Alps, with the Grand Combin as a backdrop. The traditional Swiss atmosphere of wood can be appreciated throughout the establishment, which has 29 rooms and suites. Alpine and gourmet dishes introduce children’s palates to the fine flavours of alpine cheese, while La Table d’Adrien, a Michelin-starred restaurant led by Sebastiano Lombardi, is an ode to Italian and French gastronomy. On Sundays, the whole family can enjoy brunch on the terrace. A convivial moment par excellence. The spa’s outdoor pool, heated all year round, is an essential break between the many summer activities and hiking.


The Ermitage Evian Resort hotel

The four-star Ermitage Evian Resort hotel in Évian-les-Bains, with its large green park, puts families at the heart of its offer. From the age of 4 months to 17 years, the kids club organises a wide range of activities to suit all tastes, allowing parents to indulge in a spa treatment, toast the two of you by the outdoor pool or hit a few balls at the Évian Resort Golf Club. Like the hotel, the 80 rooms and suites are elegant and cosy, with views over Lake Geneva and the surrounding countryside. Children’s facilities and connecting rooms are a real comfort for families. At the La Table restaurant, epicureanism and seasonality guide every bite.


The Carlina Belle Plagne hotel

Not far from the Italian-French border, in the heart of the resort of La Plagne, the Carlina combines authenticity and refinement at an altitude of over 2000 metres. Rough-hewn wood blends with soft colours, perfectly reflecting what you’d expect from a chic mountain chalet. In addition to the interconnecting rooms, there is a large residence with five flats and three chalets for up to 14 people. Perfect for a trip with all the family! On the culinary side, La Table du Carlina by chef Thibault Schach serves up comforting, classic dishes to please every taste bud. More intimate and cosy, the Ercheu restaurant offers a top-flight Savoyard experience. And let’s not forget the immense panoramic terrace and spa, where you can take pleasure in admiring the snow-capped peaks.


Ily la Rosière

In the heart of the Alps, Ily la Rosière looks down on the south face of Mont Blanc. It’s one of the Alpine hotels favoured by the editors of the travel inspiration website www.yonder.fr. Here, forget the traditional shades of beige and grey. The hotel reveals pastel blue colours in its lounges and Le Bonami restaurant, forest green in its bar and warm touches of orange in its 69 rooms and suites. The family rooms can accommodate up to eight people. The spa offers a sublime view of the outside world, with a sauna, hammam, swimming pool and intimate jacuzzi.


Le Savoy Méribel

With four stars to its name, at the foot of the three valleys, the Savoy Méribel has a warm, elegant atmosphere. You can’t refuse the invitation to relax by the open fire in the library. And what a pleasure it is to sample some surprising dishes on the restaurant’s large tables, where wood adorns the room from floor to ceiling, including the furniture, after a fine platter of charcuterie and cheese in the cosy bar! For the night, head for the 55m2 Family Suite, one of a collection of 38 rooms and suites. The hotel also has a spa, with a Finnish sauna and a hammam.
