Glacial pace

The French hote­lier Maisons & Ho­tels Sibuet has ap­plied the Sibuet fam­ily’s cus­tom­ary élan to a re­mote alpine re­treat in the Mont-Blanc range, high above the ski town of Cha­monix. Built in 1880 for moun­taineers, Ter­mi­nal Neige Refuge du Mon­tenvers is perched on the edge of Mer de Glace glacier, which is vis­i­ble from all 19 rooms and suites, a 10-bed dor­mi­tory and the two restau­rants. The jour­ney here is part of the ad­ven­ture – guests de­part Cha­monix on the lit­tle red Mon­tenvers train that climbs through pine for­est to the lodge, in time for a tra­di­tional Savo­yard lunch on a ter­race be­side the mighty glacier. Rooms from €190. refuge.ter­mi­nal-neige.com
