Winter 2020/2021: The first 5* stars resort in the French Southern Alps

The first 5-star resort in the Southern French Alps, Le Monde des Neiges, will open in the ski resort Auron, in the heart of the Mercantour National Park, at the gates of Monaco and Nice. Hidden away from the world and surrounded by the magnificent mountains of the Mercantour National Park, le Monde Des Neiges is designed accordingly to the historical Tinée’s barns and covered of burned wood.


This 25,000 m² concept combines high-end real estate and resort that includes a tourist residence with around fifty apartments, 5 chalets, a 55-room hotel entrusted to the international chain "Hôtels et Préférence" and luxury boutiques. The resort is centered on well-being and the art of living and will be able to operate nine months a year, well beyond the sole skiing period. The wooden and stone architecture is inspired barns in the Tinée valley.


Le Monde des Neiges enjoys the best location of the resort. Perfectly south-west oriented with a 180-degree view of the ski area and the peaks of the Mercantour National Park, the Monde des Neiges area is located directly on the slopes of Riou and it offers the advantage of being entirely pedestrian.

In the portfolio of the resort there are apartments from 3 rooms to the large chalet on the roofs as well as individual chalet with panoramic view from 180 to 300 .  The opening of the first phase, of the tourist residence and of some shops was in February 2020.


Ultimately, the 5* Resort includes a 55 room hotel, a 1200 m2 spa, 1 kid club and 5 thematic restaurants. Bruno Oger, 2-star Chef in the 2020 Michelin Guide, ensures excellence for the Resort's 5 restaurants. CellCosmet, the prestigious Swiss cosmeceutical brand, supports the 1,200  of the hotel's Spa.


Founded in 1937, Auron ski resort is located in the Alpes Maritimes, a 1.5 hour drive from Nice airport and its direct flights to the whole of Europe. The ski resort offers 135 kms of ski runs and a family park aiming to introduce the youngest to the playful ski and to the Freestyle.
