Absolutely everything was perfect. The owner (6th generation) has lavished attention to this place. The setting was always going to be impressive, the views fabulous.

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

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
