Le Télécabine

breaking

This place is so special that once discovered, you'll never want to leave.

Passionate about design, Philippe Domas, architect, and Anthony Earl, art director, have rehabilitated a 19th-century textile factory into a hotel that challenges hotel industry codes.

Though the industrial context—metal framing, brick, and concrete—testifies to the past, a large window, opening onto a huge terrace, floods the place with a light that makes it contemporary. Not to mention its decoration, which is expressed with boldness, elegance and originality.

The site is organized around four areas: a large, main 250-square-metre loft, of which 80 square meters are dedicated to a high-tech kitchen, and three small 35-square-metre lofts that are equipped with every comfort, complemented by office space and a mezzanine. The concierge handles your every wish, freeing you of all concerns.

The Télécabine (cable car) takes its name from the presence of an ‘egg' hanging proudly on the terrace, the remains of the famous ‘Devil's Gondola' of The 2 Alps ski resort, bought at a charity auction.
