★★★★ Domitys Parc de Jade Albertville (Sold out):
PLEASE NOTE – THERE IS NO OFFICIAL STAR RATING FOR THIS HOTEL, OUR RATING IS USED ONLY AS A GUIDE.
Albertville is the start village for the 2019 Etape du Tour, and last hosted the Tour in 2018. The town is known for hosting the 1992 Winter Olympics. Domitys Parc de Jade is located in central Albertville, offering apartments with mountain views and free WiFi.
All apartments have a large double bed in the separate bedroom making this an extremely comfortable and spacious option for couples.

When our contracting team went to do their site visit ahead of the Etape du Tour we stumbled across this little gem. The Domitys is a high quality organisation offering assisted living for senior citizens. When they purchased the land there was a disused small chateau in the grounds. They decided to totally restore it to its former glory and to establish a high quality hotel apartment there. The result is in our view one of the best if not the best hotel in Albertville. A brand new building set in grounds secured with restricted access with very large and very comfortable apartments.
There are just 7 apartments in the building so we expect that this will be a very popular choice. Each apartment has a separate bedroom and a bathroom, as well as a seating area with sofa bed, a dining area and a kitchen equipped with a microwave.

Your stay here is on Bed & Breakfast basis. You can keep your bike with you in your apartment as there is plenty of space. For evening meals you can either use the cooking facilities or visit one of many local restaurants.
