Ideal for an overnight stop or using as an Alpine touring base, Les Chaumettes is an excellent little independent hotel. Clean and very well presented rooms, there's a beautiful little garden overlooking the lake. The hotel benefits from being a few hundred metres away from the main road. The owners do everything themselves, so there's guaranteed attention to detail. For... More

Stayed at Les Chaumettes for three nights while driving around the excellent Hautes-Alpes roads in May 2014, and the experience was superb. Check-in as a walk in customer was no problem and the room proved to be nice and clean. Didn't get a view of the lake which didn't matter as the garden was a nice place to enjoy some... More

We booked this hotel for a weekend to ski in the local resorts. The room was spotless, the bed was supremely comfortable with beautiful quality sheets, duvet and pillows; I usually travel with my own pillow, but didn't need it here. The room was simply but very tastefully furnished and the free wi-Fi was an added bonus. The breakfast was... More

The room was spotlessly clean and almost nordic in its furnishings. Quiet position, and for the rooms at the front (sadly all taken) the view of the lake was superb. We had a small view from a little balcony, which was fine. Ample parking. Friendly welcome, and good breakfast. We did not follow the owner's recommendation for a meal in... More

I'm not sure where the person stayed who wrote the recent scathing review, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't Les Chaumettes. The hotel was very fairly priced, in fact, it was so inexpensive we were a bit wary of it. The rooms are spotless, very recently updated, and very comfortable. I'm not sure how it could have been noisy unless... More

Very basic, extremely noisy and overpriced. I don't know who made the good reviews in this place, but probably some friends, The host was more interested in get the money and getting us out by 11 (want to be very sure of it) lol

I stayed for one week in the hotel. At my arrival I received a very warm welcome by the owners Carine and Johan. During my stay they did everything to make me feel at home in their hotel. The rooms are all recently refurbished and mine had a great view over the lake. The rooms and the garden are perfectly... More

We had a wonderfull stay at this hotel in the beginning of October. Nice and very clean room with a sunny balconny.The hosts were very nice and helpfull. The hotel is situated in the nice town Savines-le-Lac in beautiful surroundings. The breakfast was good, but it could been a slightly larger selection at breakfast.

When we arrived, I was a bit disappointed the region didn't look just like Chamonix. After a few days at the hotel with Johann and Carine and looking at the view from our balcony - onto the lake with the mountain peaks in the background - I did _not_ want to leave. Johan and Carine were both great at providing... More

This hotel is a real gem. I stayed here with my sister-in-law whilst she was buying her new house in Chorges a short distance away. I cannot recommend it highly enough and it is a must-stay if you are in the area. Not only is the hotel clean, comfortable and cosy but the owners, Carine and Johan are probably the... More
