Chalet Hotel in Chamonix Mont Blanc - 3-star

The history of the hotel Le Prieuré of the vallée of Chamonix

In the Middle Ages, Le Prieuré was the name given to the centre of the village of Chamonix. At the time, people would speak of the Prieuré of Chamonix Valley. This is why, when the Morand family decided to build a boutique hotel in Chamonix, they naturally thought to name it Le Prieuré. In 1928, Doctor Chabanolles constructed a building to take care of children suffering from tuberculosis. In 1960, after some significant building work, the hotel opened its doors to the public. It was elegant and simple: the Morand style was born. In 2015, the hotel was completely renovated, while still preserving its history and authenticity. It belongs to the Best Mont-Blanc group.

Hotel atmosphere

Le Prieuré is a chalet-hotel in Chamonix. It is simultaneously a departure and arrival point, and a stop along the way that leads to the peaks…Here you will find the spirit of those who have helped write the mountain's history. Here, we relive the richness and euphoria of altitude, We share our love of the summits, It is the relaxation after the effort, This is a place where climbers unite.

The red rope of adventure

Here, the red rope is the symbol of the living link between generations; it bridges the gap between men, it is the Ariadne's thread of their adventures. In this chalet-hotel, we never take our eyes off the prize. At Le Prieuré we contemplate our goal and the view raises our spirit. 

Chamonix and its valley

Each stage deserves contemplation. Four different places: the legendary Chamonix, the family-orientated Les Houches, the authentic Servoz, and the natural Vallorcine. Not forgetting the giant: Mont Blanc. In the streets of Cham’, this "high-mountain town", you will hear a babble of different languages. But these encounters at the summit reveal a shared spirit, that of lovers of the mountain, its legends, and its ethics.
