Located at an altitude of 2,551m, in what was originally the upper station of the Solaise gondola, La Refuge claims its place as the highest hotel in France. Reached by skis or gondola, the hotel has chic and spacious family rooms – some overlook the village and valley, others have mountain views.

The views continue in the spa, where the swimming pool and hot tub face the mountains; if guests time their dip right, they’ll catch the spectacular sunset.

There’s a large children’s playroom with a cinema screen, and chef Sergio serves up homemade pizzas in the Italian restaurant. First tracks are guaranteed every morning.
