Full accommodation information

A cosy Alpine retreat, this family-owned hidden gem is nestled in the remote French Alps village of Saint-Nicolas de Veroce. Launched by the Almae Collection of luxury hotels and residences, it has a boutique-feel with just 19 rooms housed on the site of the village bakery.

Ideal for couples and families alike, Armancette is an off-the-beaten track winter escape in a lesser-known village attached to the ski region of Evasion Mont-Blanc.

Easy access to the chairlift - 50 metres from its front door - makes it ideally placed for skiing Megeve’s 235 slopes, and it’s only 10 minutes’ drive to Saint Gervais, where there are Michelin-starred restaurants and the unique ‘snow tram’ for journeys up Mont Blanc.

Spend your days on the pistes or exploring the mountains on a planned activity, such as dog sledding, snowshoeing, helicopter rides or cycling adventures... dependent, of course, on the season. Then head back to the hotel’s luxurious and inviting lodge-style rooms, which showcase epic mountain views through their large windows. If you’re travelling in a group or seeking ski-in ski-out facilities then there is a small collection of standalone chalets available to book.

The impressive spa entices with its indoor-outdoor swimming pool, Jacuzzis and fitness suite. For children there is a kids’ club during school holidays. Destination dining is served at La Table d’Armante, or more relaxed fare, live music and a children’s menu at next door Le Mont Joly. It won’t take long for you to succumb to the scent of the pastries wafting from the hotel’s indulgent bakery!

A real secret escape, Armancette offers peace and tranquillity in exceptional surroundings, with French authenticity at its heart.

The 19 unique rooms all feature marble bathrooms; double beds (which can be adjusted into twin beds); mountain or village views; and all but one have a terrace or balcony. Exclusive hire is available with accommodation for up to 58 people, and there is a small collection of private chalets which are just metres from the beginners’ slopes and include access to the hotel’s facilities.
