Spend time in a mountain retreat in Chamonix for summer 2020


The events of recent months have taken everyone by surprise and changed our lives in ways we thought unimaginable until now.

Whatever your travel plans may have been, then there has never been a better reason to spend time in nature. Stopping, resetting, listening to the birds sing and discovering the restorative power of time spent in the mountains.

We are blessed to live in an exceptionally beautiful part of France. The valley’s mythic status as the birthplace of alpinism, and with western Europe’s largest mountain watching over us, make Chamonix a natural choice for a holiday or short break during 2020.

We are ready to welcome guests again and you can relax knowing that BlackRock Ski Lodge is going to be your home from home for as long as you would like – from a weekend break to a month-long retreat, the choice is yours. Naturally, we will be taking all the precautions needed to ensure the health of our guests and will be following all relevant government guidance.

About our luxury chalet in Les Houches

The Lodge is ideally placed to allow you to create the style of holiday that suits your mood. It is a great place to be able to continue to maintain your social distance, it is also the perfect location from which to explore all that the Chamonix valley has to offer.

We are happy to make all the arrangement you need to achieve the style that suits you best. If you would like us to shop and stock the chalet with food, wine and essentials before your arrival, then simply ask about our concierge service. If you’d like delicious meals delivered ready to eat or to have a chef on hand, then just ask and we will give you a quote for additional services you’d like.

Whether you love to hike, trail run, mountain bike, paraglide or simply want to revel in the wide-open spaces that you can access from the front door of BlackRock Ski Lodge, then this is the luxury chalet for you.

We know from our previous guests that those travelling en famille and with their children love the flexibility of the accommodation on offer at the Lodge. Family suites, en suite bathrooms, and the ability to sleep between 14-18 people in comfort, mean you can choose to spend time with extended family or groups of friends.

What’s more with our above ground Intex swimming pool and ping pong table in situ, there’s lots to entertain the children without ever having to leave the large private gardens that surround the chalet. For the grown-ups, there are large decks, loungers, a sauna and a Jacuzzi with breath-taking views of Mont-Blanc and the Chamonix valley.

Mont Blanc Natural Resort is putting all the measures in place needed to allow visitors to safely enjoy Chamonix’s classic attractions. The Aiguille du Midi lift, the Montenvers train and the Tramway du Mont Blanc.

With Chamonix’s lifts open, it also means that, for the mountaineers and alpinists amongst our guests, the opportunity to participate in the sports for which the valley is famous are also available. Whether your ambition is to summit Mont Blanc or explore the classic high mountain routes that criss-cross the Mont Blanc Massif, we can introduce you to our handpicked selection of mountain guides.

If your goal is to simply explore our majestic mountains, then there are 100s of kilometres of trails, alpine lakes and viewpoints aplenty to discover.

We also know that many people have not been able to celebrate the milestones that they would normally mark – birthdays, christenings, engagements, weddings and anniversaries. If you would like to celebrate an event during your stay with us, then we would love to help. From fine chefs to florists and from cake makers to wine merchants, we know everyone you might need to help create magical memories for you and your family and friends.

If you are already planning for the winter, then discover all about a Chamonix Mont Blanc Unlimited Pass and all the fun you can have on your skis and our self or fully-catered holiday options.
