A family story
The story of Le Chalet Mounier is also the story of a family. The adventure started in 1879, a time before luxury hotels and ski lifts in Les Deux Alpes. Pierre Balme set up an inn with two rooms and a dining room, which was then taken over by his son Daniel, and later by his granddaughter, Marie.
In 1933, Marie opened the first hotel in the resort with her husband, Hippolyte Mounier. In 1971, Robert Mounier took over, with his wife Georgia. They transformed the hotel into an exceptional attraction with swimming pools, a spa and gourmet restaurant that, a few years after opening, won a Michelin star.
Today, Alban, the son of Robert and Georgia and his partner Angélique, have continued this tradition of hospitality and excellence at this friendly, family hotel!
