Hermitage Paccard Chalet Hotel, Chamonix

Beautiful hotel in a peaceful setting just two minutes from the town centre


A charming, family-run chalet-hotel situated in the calm area of Les Mouilles, one of the oldest inhabited areas of the valley. The hotel features splendid views of Mont-Blanc and the Aiguilles Rouges range and is just a stone's throw from the town centre.

This family-run hotel has been owned by the Paccard family for three generations. Sophie and Michel will be there to give you a warm welcome, as well as their staff, who are on hand to make sure that your stay is as comfortable as possible. A true love and passion for Chamonix can be felt throughout this hotel. The traditional wood and stone throughout make for an authentic, cosy and extremely charming atmosphere.

There are a range of en-suite double rooms available, all with stunning mountain views and some directly facing Mont Blanc. A larger, triple room is perfect if you are travelling with a child or why not treat yourself to the Mont Blanc suite, with its own private lounge and uninterrupted views of the surrounding peaks. Rooms are available on a bed and breakfast basis giving you the flexibility to enjoy the town's many restaurants in the evening, which are just a stone's throw away.

The hotel's spa and wellness area - The Jardin Alpin - offers a range of relaxation options during your stay. There are three different sauna experiences, a private jacuzzi, a gentle relaxation room with ambient music and a natural pool filled with plant-filtered water for a refreshing dip.

In the evening, why not relax in the hotel's comfortable lounge area or cocktail bar.

The Paccard family also offers luxury apartments and chalets for up to 8 people for stays with friends or family. Enjoy a concierge service that's tailored to your needs and accommodation facing Mont-Blanc.

Watch this


This property is let on self-catering basis, however, this doesn’t mean you need to cook for yourself! There are a number of private chefs you can book who can prepare your meals for the full week or the odd night. Alternatively you could opt for a food delivery service.

Worth knowing

Try and book a room on the higher floors with a balcony to get amazing views of Le Brévent.

Who should go

With a play room and large garden, it is a great option for family with young children who still want a bit of elegance. It is equally suited to those looking for a romantic getaway in stylish, tranquil accommodation close to the local restaurants and night-life. 

The Neighbourhood

Peaceful residential area away from all the noise of the town. However, you are only a two minute walk from the Avenue Michel Croz where there are a number of bars and restaurants as well as the train station. 

The Bar

A cosy and welcoming salon with comfy leather sofas and armchairs and plump cushions. They offer a good range of spirits, wines, cocktails and beers for a small bar and the setting is intimate with good personal service. 

The Restaurant

The hotel restaurant only serves breakfast and is available from 07:30 - 10:30 for a supplement.  However, there are light local speciality platters available at the hotel throughout the day, and afternoon tea cakes are served by the fire or in the garden after a hard day in the mountains. Packed lunches can be prepared on request and if you are a special group or conference booking half-board and catering may also be arranged.

As you come to the end of the dual carriage way that enters Chamonix, continue straight on over the first roundabout, past the exit for Mont Blanc Tunnel to Italy. Continue straight over the next two roundabouts. As you pass over the Montenvers train tracks (there will be a large car park on your right before the rail crossing), take the first right (a narrow passage just before the fly over bridge). Continue down this road for 150m and the hotel grounds are on your right. 

Child policy

Children are most welcome at the hotel and will love the play room and the garden.
