A traditional Savoyard-style building, with solid stone walls and timber cladding, the Hotel Gentiana has been welcoming guests since 1964. And many return year after year for the homely atmosphere and easy access to the large Espace Killy ski area.
Inside, the décor has kept pace with the times. There are plenty of comfy sofas in the lounge and the wood-panelled bedrooms are simple but inviting, with crisp white linen and patterned curtains and cushions adding a stylish touch. Step out the front door and you’re only minutes away from the lifts and the ski school meeting point – so you can have a leisurely breakfast and still be one of the first on the slopes.
Don’t let the unassuming dining room fool you – the food here is top-notch. Every evening you’ll be treated to a choice of dishes for the three-course meal. And once a week, there’s a speciality menu with Savoyarde dishes like raclette and pierrade – a table-top barbeque experience where you cook your own meat.
The indoor pool is the place to be at the end of the day. The large windows face the mountains, so you can enjoy sunset views while having a relaxing dip. And there’s a sauna and steam room too, where you can soothe those sore ski legs.
