Ancien Hotel du Globe - Description
Restored to its former glory, l'Ancien Hotel du Globe retains many original features and offers luxurious living in the heart of Argentiere village, Chamonix Mont-Blanc. The Globe is only 5 minutes walk from Argentiere ski lift with excellent accessibility from Geneva airport.
Originally the site of a farmhouse, the Hotel du Globe was built in the 1890 by Luc Ravanel, a Chamonix Guide. It was well-established for the arrival of the railway in the valley. Thus began an era of fashionable holiday accommodation at the centre of Argentiere. The hotel was host to many distinguished guests, among them Louis Lachenal, a famous French Alpinist, one of the first to conquer the summit of Annapurna in the Himalayas.
There are two buildings in the development. L'Ancien Hotel du Globe keeps the exterior of the original hotel. It is a listed building and it will be refurbished to replicate the original scheme to the highest standards. In addition, the upper level apartments will benefit from a dedicated access from the charming courtyard at the rear of the building. L'Ancien Hotel du Globe retains the original vaulted cellars, the ground floor and three upper floors plus attic accommodation. The upper levels comprise up to 9 apartments from 50 to 200 metres square, all with views of Mont Blanc.
The second building, Clos de la Croix Blanche, is situated next door to the original hotel and is being constructed entirely in keeping with the style of Chamonix's elegant Victorian town houses - stone lintels and simple rendered facades complemented by ornate balconies. Le Clos de la Croix Blanche houses eight smart apartments, ranging in size from 64 to 125 metres square. Each apartment boasts a balcony and terrace and spectacular view of the mountains. The development also boasts two levels of underground parking.
Apartments will be equipped to the highest standards, including the latest under floor heating, fully-fitted and equipped kitchens to high specifications, luxurious bathrooms, living room with built-in cable ducting for surround sound equipment, fireplaces or wood stoves, parquet floors and high quality marble and stone finishes, to name but some of the top quality features you will find in this exclusive development. The developer, Alpine Space Development have successfully completed two impressive residential renovation projects since 2001.
