The Ruchtis’ Grand Coeur rejoined our group of very personally run, lovely hotels. It’s located in Méribel’s center, is one of the village’s originals and has kept up with our fast-paced life without losing any of its romantic charm. Built with local wood and stone, you immediately notice the workmanship entering the lobby. It’s such a cozy room you just want to sink into a sofa near the fireplace and stay a while. The 30 bedrooms are rustic with pine paneling or very contemporary with four totally renovated and enlarged for the 19/20 season. Afternoons you may want to try the Jacuzzi, sauna or have a massage. Then wrap up your day with dinner in their restaurant, top rated by Michelin, before hitting that pillow with your name on it.
