Perched on the Mont-Blanc to 6725 feet above sea level, with a view overlooking the Mer de Glace and mythical Aiguille des Drus, the Grand Hotel du Montenvers is a place of history and authenticity. Built in 1880 to accommodate the first mountaineers and travelers who came to visit the Mer de Glace, it displays a sober granite façade, dotted by many small windows. It is inside these walls that the history and the soul of the place are revealed, the echoes of epic writers, mountaineers and adventures of the late nineteenth century that contributed to its legendary story.
The Refuge du Montenvers exudes old-fashioned charm in its 20 rooms. You will find individual rooms for a romantic experience, shared dormitories for groups of mountaineers, and private rooms that can accommodate 5 to 7 people for families or friends. Whatever your choice, the simplicity and the conviviality of the space will invite you to enjoy unforgettable moments, in a privileged setting, where serenity and comfort combine in perfect harmony.
The Montenvers Restaurant offers a mountain cuisine, highlighting the transalpine flavors... Snail cassolette of the Mont Blanc country, crust with morels, roast poultry or fondues signed by the master cheesemaker Boujon will please the Montenvers visitors.
Le Panoramique Mer de Glace restaurant, a bistro with a view, features French cuisine that invites you to rediscover regional flavours prepared in their cast-iron cocottes. Enjoy classics like the Savoyard hotpot, the Pela des Aravis or the grandmother’s roast chicken. A bit of sweet tooth? We offer mountain favorites like the Mer de Glace, a homemade ice cream cup or the classic Mont-Blanc with chestnut cream.
The Montenvers hikers and skiers of the Vallée Blanche can stop at the Bar des Glaciers, where snacks prepared with fresh, ingredients are proposed at any time of day. It’s a stop not to be missed before boarding the Montenvers train!
