Le Whymper, chalet & spa: your new base camp in the heart of Chamonix. Discret, quiet, incomparable…

Chalet Whymper, entirely renovated into a chic and contemporary style Chalet, opened its doors in December 2017. Situated in the heart of Chamonix, the chalet has 10 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and can host up to 22 guests and would be ideal for group of friends, large families, seminars, team-building events, incentive stays, etc… With its own private SPA and different communal living spaces, the chalet allows for social gatherings as well as moments for relaxation.

The chalet is named after Edward Whymper, a famous British climber and illustrator from the second half of the 19th century. He is mainly known for the first ascent of the Matterhorn and for his contribution to the development of mountaineering in the valley of Chamonix.

The decoration of the chalet is inspired by this mythical character; the presence of crystals and replicas of his engravings will immerse you in the atmosphere of his fabulous adventures transcribed in ‘‘Scrambles among the Alps’’, a masterpiece of alpine literature.

Whether you are a big family or a group of friends, whether you come for a ski weekend or a special event...make the chalet Whymper your perfect base in Chamonix.

• You benefit from a fully privatized chalet (350 sqm) in the city center and at the foot of Mont-Blanc.
• The chalet has been completely refurbished in 2017 in a chic and cosy style to accommodate groups up to 22 people: everything has been designed so that you can relax and enjoy your stay in a unique setting.
