High altitude hotels do not necessarily mean chalets and animal skins. The proof is in the form of these three addresses that are reinventing the genre.

The mountain world cultivates very specific codes. Wooden beams, fireplaces, the distant smell of cheese... In 2023, hoteliers are dusting off the alpine spirit and imagining high-altitude establishments that combine their roots with a more contemporary decor. These three new hotels are proof of that.

La Cachette in Arc 1600 : Perriand sublimated

It is a mythical address in Arc 1600. The hotel La Cachette, designed by the architects Alain Taves and Robert Rebutato in the 1970s, bears the imprint of Charlotte Perriand. The French architect and designer, who is also a mountain enthusiast, has been designing the resort of Les Arcs since 1967.

In Les Arcs, there are many more condominiums than residences offering services worthy of a five-star hotel. La Cachette is an exception. Renovated this year with the greatest respect for the work of its architects and designer, this new Alpine hotel is a perfect illustration of Perriand's aesthetic. Without taking anything away from the charms of the altitude, the Savoyard spirit is exchanged for sobriety and the great functionality of its equipment.
