Accommodation in Montgenevre has come on in leaps and bounds in the last ten years. Gone are the tired old hotels and apartments. Le Napoleon was the original inn set at the foot of the slopes, and it was bought by CGH and redeveloped into 54 sleek modern apartments. All have terraces or balconies and come fully fitted, furnished and decorated. The building houses a wellness centre, an indoor heated swimming-pool, and a pleasant lounge area with fireplace and comfy sofas. There is small supermarket next door, as well as a ski rental shop close by.
Also in the old centre is two-star Hotel Valerie, which is a simple but comfortable place to stay near the church, and also worth noting that several British tour operators offer catered chalets in the resort. Ski Miquel runs the Ours Blanc chalet-hotel here.
The new Obelique area of town is located at the foot of the Chalvet slopes, 150m from the Chalvet cable-car. A separate ski kindergarten and children’s ski school meeting point are here, along with a nice grocery store, ski hire shops, and restaurants. The attractive new chalet-style buildings are all built using local larch wood, which has been treated to make it look weathered. They include the alpine-urban style Anova Hotel with a cool modern interior, 40 attractive bedrooms, a spa, and a good restaurant and bar. CGH also have Chalet Des Dolines in the Obelisque area, with an indoor heated swimming-pool and spa.
You may also find time to be pampered in the superb O des Cîmes Spa.
