Our hotel has a story…
The first part of the establishment was built in 1930. This is the side with the rooms overlooking Mont Blanc. The hotel was owned by Pépé Luc and managed by Berthe, his wife. Pépé Luc was a mountain guide and he only helped his wife for ordering the wine and during breakfast service. At this time of the day, he used to bring with him a lamb and feed him like a baby.
In the 60’s after the death of his mother, Berthe, Jeannot Tournier inherits the hotel and also the management of other establishments such as the "Caleche" restaurant and a really famous night club at that time, the “Toboggan”. The hotel was then managed by Nicole, his wife. The swimming pool was built on the roof top of the hotel as well as the rooms overlooking the Brevent. The panoramic terrace was used as an ice rink during the winter and as a solarium during the summer season.
Jeannot Tournier was an icon of Chamonix City, precursor of the Ski Scooter, and also the first one to be a clown on the slopes. He was a master of skiing on stilts. Walt Disney was inspired by him, so Jeannot spent two years in the United States as an actor, playing in several movies of Walt Disney. This gave him the opportunity to meet actors like Sean Connery.
