THE BUILDING / ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
Novelty is taking over the Chamonix town centre. With its panoramic views of Mont-Blanc and the Aiguille du Midi, combined to a unique location right next to the cable-car halt of one of the world's most famous sites, the 4-star Heliopic Hotel & Spa is the highlight of the resort.
Combining modernity with tradition, Jean-Claude DESCOMBES' majestic architecture will amaze you. Facing the Mont-Blanc, the two 4-storey chalets overlook 1,800m2 of ground floor. Each step you take, each door you open will let you discover a succession of elegant novelties. Simply forget anything you've ever experienced and come to discover a 4-star Hotel and Spa that is outstanding down to the smallest detail.
Nested at the foot of the Aiguille du Midi, the construction work was masterfully overseen by Didier PINARD with respect for both the mountains and the town centre. Remarkable human effort backed by a cutting-edge expertise enabled to step up to the challenge of carrying out a construction project in the harsh climatic conditions of the valley of Chamonix.
The personality of the design inspired by interior designer Leslie GAUTHIER has made each area unique. In a 50s/60s-style up-scale décor, the "just like at home" touch gives a very cosy dimension to the hotel’s atmosphere. Stone and wood have been treated with care, the materials used are sustainable and the textures have been chosen with guest comfort in mind. On level -1, a unique spa has been designed with high ceilings and bay windows opening onto the Mont-blanc valley for a stunning and incomparable view.
