Hotel Lac Salin Spa & Mountain Resort ****S
The view here is of the ‘Tibet of the Alps’, and even though Hotel Lac Salin Spa and Mountain Resort appears to be perfectly suited to this mountainous area, the inside is quite different: it's modern and elegant- wood has been used in various ways to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, as well as other materials such as slate, granite and stoneware.
This resort, which boasts two restaurants and a meeting room that can hold up to 100 people, has a strong vocation for well-being and it features a 900m² spa, named Mandira Spa, which has a large indoor swimming pool and a modern fitness room.
