Perched up at 1913 m in the Mont-Blanc range, with a view that plunges down over the Mer de Glace and the legendary Aiguilles des Drus, the Grand Hotel du Montenvers is a place that is alive with history and authenticity.
Built in 1880 to accommodate the first mountaineers and travellers who had come to see the Mer de Glace, the Grand Hotel presents a sober granite façade pierced with lots of little windows. It’s the interior that reveals its true soul and its history, impregnated with the extraordinary epics of the late 19th century writers, mountaineers and adventurers who are behind the legend.
