In the heart of the picturesque town of Chamonix, France, stands a testament to time and elegance – Le Majestic. This emblematic Chamonix residence, icon of the town’s golden past, was once a luxury hotel serving Europe’s élite.

Chamonix All Year invites you to stay at the Majestic

During the 19th century, as Alpine tourism exploded in popularity, Chamonix established itself as a must-see for wealthy travellers eager to visit renowned attractions like the Mer de Glace and Mont Blanc. The thousands of visitors increasingly required luxurious accommodation and enterprising locals soon sought to meet that demand, building many of the hotels that still stand in Chamonix today. Cachat’s Majestic Palace was one such hotel, playing host to the great and the good of Europe and beyond.

Over the past hundred years, Le Majestic has not merely been a witness to history but has actively shaped the cultural tapestry of Chamonix. It has hosted distinguished guests, from royalty and celebrities to adventurers and intellectuals. The building’s walls whisper stories of lavish soirées, exclusive gatherings, and the exchange of ideas that have echoed through the decades.

Now known simply as Le Majestic, the iconic building retains its magnificent ball rooms and gardens. The conference centre, besides housing many original works by renowned artist Gabriel Loppé, hosts a range of events, including the biannual crystal fairs which bring together crystal hunters and collectors from all around the world.

The heritage listed building still to this day retains its majestic beauty with stunning architecture, high ceilings, wide corridors and beautiful gardens.
