La Prairie Hotel and café

La Forêt July 1st, 2008

Surely the prettiest setting of any cafe in on the Chamonix Valley floor, the Prairie has been run by the same family for four generations. Set up by a 19th century mountain guide who climbed Mont Blanc 99 times from the front door of the hotel on foot (before the days of lifts), it still offers a warm welcome in simple, traditional rooms, home-made kir and other cordials, crepes, teas and light meals. A wonderful place to take a break from a walk, have a light lunch or an early evening drink, watching the light change on Mont Blanc as you sit under the pergola….

    Oh just look at the mountain sight, Chamonix is so beautiful. I’ve been there in last winter and now i see that it’s so beautiful in summer too.
