Come to Vallorcine for unbeatable views of the Cascade de Berard

This summer, why not stay with us at the Bellevue Alpine Lodge in Vallocine and rediscover the Cascade de BĂ©rard and its tumultuous falls from the new footbridge.

This new construction replaces the old bridge built in 1866 by the people of Vallorcine, using 25 cubic metres of larch brought down from the Aiguilles Rouges.

An easy 30 min walk takes you from the Buet hamlet through the Poya hamlet with its typical little stone houses that once sheltered the goatherds - it's a peaceful and beautiful spot, easily reached from Vallorcine.

The Bellevue Alpine Lodge is a traditional gite style hotel situated in beautiful Vallorcine, in the Chamonix valley. We have five rooms available from €75, with B&B and half-board options.

For more details please call us on +33 (0)4 50 54 60 43 or complete our contact form.

Summertime in Vallorcine at the Bellevue Alpine Lodge

The start of the winter season seems a long time ago now, but we had great snow from early December and a hotel full of family and friends for Christmas – lots of fun on the slopes and in the bar and restaurant!

We have an exciting summer ahead, starting with a group of British journalists coming to stay at The Bellevue in June. 

We have organised this trip to promote the summer activities in Vallorcine….and of course our hotel. 

We will be inviting them to join us hiking, climbing, canyoning and cycling over 3 days. The evenings will be spent at the Bellevue for drinks and dinner with some of our local friends and colleagues.

The Bellevue will be closed for a spring break from May 8th until June 13th. We are off to England with Zita and Griotte to visit family and friends.

Looking forward to seeing you over the summer.
