With its peak touching the clouds, Mont Blanc holds a fascination for everyone who comes near. Ever since two mountaineers first conquered the Giant of the Alps over two centuries ago, this Haute-Savoie resort, a pioneer in the practice of skiing, has managed to preserve a unique atmosphere.
This Club Med Village is set in the cosy, welcoming decor of a former hotel, the Savoy, renovated by the architect Jacques Garcia. From the terrace or the outdoor heated swimming pool, the view of Mont Blanc is all yours.
