Chalet de la Floria Restaurant, Chamonix

Beautiful flower-filled terrace & panoramic view
Featured in: Mountain Restaurants Updated

A short but steep hike from Chamonix brings you to this rustic restaurant, named for the bright blooms that cover every inch of this traditional mountain refuge.

The terrace juts out over the mountainside, giving sweeping views of the valley floor and the entire Mont Blanc mountain range opposite. However, the floral displays here are just as breathtaking as the mountain views and it is well worth the walk up. 

The chalet is open throughout summer and autumn, hours depending on daylight, serving simple lunches and snacks such as omelettes and salads. They also have a couple of picnic tables where you can eat your own sandwiches if you buy a drink. This is a great spot to stop for a rest and a refresher whilst hiking in the Flegere area.

Weather permitting, it's open from 1st May to the 1st November.

Visitor comments

  • "Definitely worth the climb, the flowers all over and around the chalet are very pretty indeed, and the view's breathtaking. Oh, and the drinks are good too, including the slightly unusual tart lemon drink." - Trip Advisor
  • "We stumbled across this place on the way back from a run to Lac Blanc. Great views and chocolate box setting. A good place for a quick pitstop." - Trip Advisor
  • "Gorgeous views after a steep final stretch. A good hike for an afternoon from Chamonix if you're not a regular hiker-which as a family from suburban Canada we are not. Friendly service, the plants are beautiful and the blueberry cake was pretty good too!" - Trip Advisor
