120 years, 5 generations, 5 stars
Delightful in time and space, this serene and bucolic enclave generates an immediate sense of well-living. The Hameau Albert 1er, Relais & Châteaux shaped by the Carrier family, who have been rooted in Chamonix for several centuries, embodies a mountain lifestyle nourished by a deep attachment to genuine values deeply rooted in their native land. In the Hameau, the words identity, commitment, and hospitality have meaning. The fascinating and mineral beauty of the surrounding peaks is complemented by the gentleness of a lush and beautifully flowered garden, punctuated by charming old chalets and a vegetable garden that serves as inspiration for the chefs of the two restaurants, from generous beehive filled with honey! The pride of the Albert 1er is its stone-built structure, dating back to 1903, which engages in a dialogue with the old wooden farms imagined at the end of the 20th century to Maison Carrier, a delightful country restaurant, a superb indoor and outdoor pool, a cozy spa, and cozy suites. Lastly, within the Hameau's nectar-filled park, there is "Le Fenil," a contemporary and discreet architectural gem that hosts seminars, as well as a warm and stylish independent family suite with a spacious terrace open to nature and Mont Blanc.
This beautiful family adventure unfolds through the various grafts that have grown in complete harmony with the historic building of the Albert 1er.
