Evian-Les-Bains is the perfect example of the French Belle Epoque. Its lakeside promenade, beaches, narrow pedestrian streets and terraces turn this destination into a dream come true. You can also visit the Cachat Spring, the source of Evian natural mineral water, to which the town owes its fame.
Located in the Mont-Blanc region of Haute-Savoie, just a few miles from the Portes du Soleil and close to Geneva airport, the 4-star Hôtel Ermitage is a residence built in the Anglo-Normand-Savoyard style, on three floors with galleries overlooking Lake Geneva.
Style of hotel
The decoration at the Ermitage is intimate, authentic and refined, inspired by nature to provide a warm, friendly atmosphere. In the restaurants and common areas, one finds fine natural materials such as wood, stone and leather, shades of brown and open fires.
Harmonious colours bathed in light. In the guest rooms, each bathroom has been designed using mineral materials in hues of grey and taupe. Pebbles and slate work with transparency to retrace the history of Evian water, its journey from the mountains to the spring.
What room to get?
There are 80 rooms in Hotel Ermitage, all of them spacious, welcoming and stylishly decorated, with amazing views and perfectly designed to accommodate parents and children. The Suites at the Hôtel Ermitage have a large balcony from which to enjoy the breathtaking views of the lake from your comfortable sun lounger.
Most of the rooms offer a double bed and sofa bed. The hotel is also pet-friendly; however, animals must be kept on a lead and are not allowed in the restaurants or near the swimming pools.
Where to eat?
You will be able to choose from 4 Restaurants at Hotel Ermitage. If you are looking for a Sunday brunch, La Table proposes a wide, varied buffet brunch that can be enjoyed out on the terrace overlooking Lake Geneva. They offer the “Flavours of Italy” buffet every Friday evening. The restaurant La Bibliothèque offers a modern and refined wellness cuisine. At the Birdie, guests can enjoy a wide selection of teas, herbal teas, cold drinks, wines and spirits. We highly recommend Floral Tea!
