Big ski resort and a summer sports destination
Modern and artistic. Bold and historic. Flaine, labelled "20th century national heritage", leaves no one indifferent. From 1,600 to 2,500m altitude, the Haute-Savoie region is one of the most popular in the Alps. Alhéna, a development combining hotel and Leaseback residence built by MGM Constructeur, is its new architectural work. Delivery: Christmas 2021.
Famous for its rough concrete surfaces, Flaine is ideally located between Geneva and Chamonix, in the heart of the Northern Alps (Haute-Savoie), on the Grand Massif, the 1st ski area in the world certified by the eco-responsible label Green Globe. A ski-in, ski-out resort, with a pedestrian-only centre and shops in the immediate vicinity, Flaine is a real winter sports ground in all its forms. But to really get to know the destination, you have to discover it in the summer! Whether on or underground, in the air, in the water, by bike, paragliding, climbing, walking, rowing, running... activities and leisure activities allow you to explore landscapes still unexplored in all their facets. The 360° panorama over the Mont-Blanc, Aravis, Belledonne and Jura massifs is exceptional.
A true open-air museum, Flaine is the only resort in the world to exhibit monumental artistic (Picasso, Dubuffet, Pol Bury, Vasarely...) and permanent architectural works. "The use of concrete, both plastic and geometric, in Flaine is very attractive. The confrontation between this rough material and the rock, or the snow-covered peaks, generates striking visual contrasts," explains Guillaume Relier, architect of the new MGM Constructeur hotel and Leaseback development, Residence Alhéna.
Ideally located in the heart of the pedestrian resort, between Flaine Forum, the heart of the resort, and Flaine Front de Neige, Residence Alhéna is designed to respect the identity of the resort. "Reworking the rough concrete surface while giving it a contemporary character, such as, for example, metal cladding elements that will play on the reflections with the landscape; creating flat areas in order to offer an increase of the public space and gathering places, such as terraces and restaurants..." such were the wishes of the architect and MGM Constructeur.
