Chalet Hotel Chamois d'Or, Cordon - 5 nights
This family run 4 star hotel has been in the Petit-Jean family for four generations. Located on the hillside above Cordon, this welcoming hotel prides itself on its rustic, alpine inspired design, decorated in wood and local stone with Savoie furniture and hand painted cupboards. The food is often local cuisine and the views from the restaurant and all the rooms sweep across the Mont-Blanc or the Aravis mountain range. Bedrooms feature that wonderful wooden decor and all have balconies with similar views. A perfect place to stay over
Great tour with an excellent Tour Manager and Driver.
This is a 'Must Do' tour and should be on eveyone's bucket list. The area of Cordon was superb! The hotel was brilliant as was the family who hosted us.
