This is a very cool thing to do with family. You actually stay in these pods (camouflage in the summer, white in the winter) in a very environmentally positive environment. There is a small 15 minute hike to your pod from the reception which takes you through the small village and then in the farmers field passing the cows on... More

That was just an outstanding moment. Standing on the balcony of this luxury tent and getting closer with my wife. Hand in hand with a breathtaking view over the mountains. However, making fire in the tents is not really recommend as you will definitely smell the smoke. But for a romantic night...

Dear Whitepoder, I am glad to read your really nice comment regarding your stay with us. I shared already your feedback with the whole team. Regarding the wood stove, we just change all of them with wood pellet stove. It's easier to use and you will not smell the smoke anymore. Best regards, Emilien Sommier More

Was definitely not expecting this surprise stay during our honeymoon. In October, the area can be quite cold and muddy, and given that I was traveling with a heavy wedding dress and it's an outdoorsy stay, there were some challenges to say the least. In truth, had I known I was headed there, it could have been a pretty amazing... More

It was a memorable stay and such a unique experience. I stayed for 1 night but I wished i stayed for 2 to try some of the activities. As soon as you arrive, everything is sorted for you including delivering you bags to the Pod. After the briefing, you get to hike up to your pod. I was worried about... More

A MAGICAL WHITEPOD EXPERIENCE On Arrival at the Whitepod reception, just underneath the restaurant "Les Cerniers", we got checked in by a very helpful and polite receptionist who summoned us through the Whitepod house rules and explained what was what in this eco friendly village. We were handed a brief but informative orientation plan, which we found was very detailed... More

This was an amazing Trip. The pods are really thoughtfully designed and cosy with a log fire and fur rugs. There are amazing walks in the mountains and forests and skiing in season. The food is great and the views are spectacular. You can choose to have massages in the pod or couples massages in the lodge. The private dining... More

This is a unique and very extraordinary place with amazing views and an amazing pod. It is highly recommended for nature lovers, in winter or in summer. Although it is a luxurious place (and a very pricey one), it does lack some luxury elements because of its location at 1400m altitude. You need to walk 20+ mins (sometimes in mud... More

We spent two nights here. The service was excellent every minute. The breakfast was very good and had a good variety. The tea time was fun for some treats. There was very good hiking around the alps and to the top of a mountain. The pod has everything that you need and is very cozy. Highly recommend this place to... More
