My partner and I stayed for 4 nights at Chateau des Avenieres in December 2011. It has been 2 years but not a month go by so we dont remember the room, the meal, the atmosphere, the kind staff and the beautiful bar of the Chateau !!
To start with, we have stayred in one of the most memorable rooms I have ever been to - it had a free standing bath and steps leading to a little lounge upstairs with its own terrace overlooking the Alps - can you imagine having a glass of bubbles after your bath standing literally on top of the world?
On the first night we have arrived rather late and decided to eat at the hotel restaurant - it was delicious !!!! And the wine list was as long and as fascinating as a good book! Loved the room as well. But when we went for the cheese ... I have never seen a better cheese trolley. I promise. And trust me, I have travelled to a hell of a lot of countries, but still, best cheese trolley. In fact, the meal was so good, we booked ourselves for a gourmet New Years Dinner. And we were not disappointed! Foie gras was delicious!
The same night after dinner we stayed up at the bar until quite late, where a lovely bartender was talking to us about all the whiskey, making suggestions and letting us try things.
The next morning the snowfall was tremendous and we could not go down the mountain to ski, so the receptionist made a call and brought us a couple of sledges. We had a wonderful day sledging sledging around and visiting the little spa at the hotel, playing chess and drinking wine.
I am barely a tripadvisor contributor, but I could not recommend this place enough !!! Trust me, it is an amazing romantic, beautiful and friendly Chateau. Do not know about summer, but winter looks magical.
Thank you for making it so special !
