Ski runs that seemingly stretch out to infinity, an abundance of sunshine, snow fall galore: welcome to Avoriaz, a snowy paradise for skiers! Posed like an eagle’s nest on a cliff of shale, perched high at 1800m altitude, in this environment of stunning beauty, the alpine resort offers a full field of incredible games for the whole family. Born of an ecological challenge before its time, this carless resort where the roads are ski slopes, you connect to tribe mode and put you in tune with this avant-garde place, fully imagined for winter sports.Nestled in the heart of the historic Dromonts neighbourhood in Avoriaz, the Hôtel des Dromonts style is organic, with a layout that splays out like a fan, affording panoramic views across the breathtaking landscape, and an innovative “tavaillon roof” style siding covered in cedar shingles, these wooden shingles are typical of Savoyard roofs, giving the hotel its signature pinecone shape. The Dromonts’ square became the historical heart of the resort and it is undoubtedly its unique atmosphere, which inspired the creation of the Avoriaz Fantasy Film Festival. The festival jury deliberates there, directors find new inspiration and the paparazzi stake out the stairs to capture the stars of the festival before the horse-drawn sleighs whisk them off to private viewings in exclusive screening rooms… Among them Steven Spielberg, David Cronenberg, Brian De Palma, David Lynch, Luc Besson and many more.
The legendary Hôtel Des Dromonts remains nearly 50 years after its creation a contemporary architectural marvel, as breathtaking as the snowy peaks that surround it. The audacious elements of varied levels and revolutionary lines are revisited in a cozy and warm spirit, enhancing the sixties design style. Everything was done to keep the original spirit of the place with a focus on natural, local materials… Exterior shingles, a signature-style specific to the resort, bright pops of color, slate stones, the Hôtel des Dromonts combines modern comfort while highlighting the warm, rounded and peppy style of the sixties. The hotel lounge with its wooden walkway and large, open, brick fireplace invites guests to bask in its warmth on built-in benches, sharing a hot chocolate or mulled wine after a day on the slopes. As for the 28 rooms and 6 suites, they have been designed as “ski chamber*” chic and comfortable like a soft nest, optimized and adapted to the needs of the skier, in a 60s Mod style revisited in cosy fabrics and plush carpets for an intimate and functional atmosphere.
