Hotels in the mountains: La Folie Douce invests the former hotel Le SavoyNovember 18, 2018
La Folie Douce invests the former hotel Le Savoy, a 1900s behemoth, formerly Club Med. Eight months of work (billing around 18 million euros), 250 rooms, 4 restaurants, a huge swimming pool, a spa and … 3 hotels in 1.
A hostel with dormitories to share singularly lack privacy, a 3-star hotel with small rooms (legacy Club Med) and a 4-star luxury. But the originality of the place is elsewhere, in a basement dedicated to après-ski. Monumental chandeliers, in which acrobatic dancers will evolve, will decorate a festive space, with a musical scene and a Hollywood bar open at 5pm. But extinguishing fires at 9 pm, promises the direction. The same sweet madness has its limits … at least hourly.
The Sweet Folly Chamonix (04.50.55.10.00; Lafoliedoucehotels.com). From 140 € per night in a Premium double room.
