Charming, traditional chalet

Hotel Le Calgary’s friendly, sporting atmosphere, warm family welcome, great comfort, and discreet, attentive, quality service make it a traditional chalet where guests feel at home and return time and again.

Add to that its bar, restaurant and naturally lit, heated indoor swimming pool with sauna, Turkish bath, and Jacuzzi.

There’s also plenty to keep sports enthusiasts happy, be it organised cycle rides, rambling, or cross-country skiing. The hotel provides a ski waxing area, a useful amenity where cross-country skiers meet and share experience and personal tips.

Alpine skiers have not been forgotten. They have lockers fitted with boot heaters.

Last but not least, children get special winter holiday treatment with their very own play room, an animateur for activities like handicraft and video, tailored menus, and a lavish buffet tea served every afternoon at a long table.

Totally relaxing holidays in an outstanding setting that will delight the young and old, sport lovers and families.

Calgary and Franck PICCARD

The owner of Hotel Le Calgary is Franck PICCARD, who won the gold and bronze medals at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary and was silver medallist at Albertville games in 1992.


Although he travelled widely, the Austrian mountain mindset had a lasting effect on him. It inspired him to create this charming hotel with its blend of authenticity and modernity and balconies bedecked with geraniums in the summer and decorated with fir trees in the winter.

A little history

At the Calgary Winter Olympics in Canada in February 1988 Franck Piccard was the super giant slalom gold medallist and bronze medallist in the downhill event.

This local boy’s sporting feat, together with the tremendous media coverage he attracted, helped train the international spotlight on the Les Saisies skiing resort in a very original manner.

To show its gratitude to Franck, the ski resort gave him a piece of land on which, two years later, he built his hotel. He called it, of course, “LE CALGARY”. Franck travelled widely, visiting ski resorts all over the world. But it was the quality of the hotel business in the Austrian mountains that impressed him most, as much for its infrastructure as its legendary hospitality.

Franck made the acquaintance of Christian Rey Grand, a highly talented architect with a passion for his art, and well known in the resorts of the Tarentaise region. The two men formed a project that met Franck’s investment capacity, designing an original, fully integrated building with soft, attractive lines.

The earthwork commenced in May 1990, with the very first guest arriving seven months later.

On 14 July 1990 a management company came into being. Native son, J.J. BERTHOD, became the hotel’s manager after working for 10 years in the ski resorts of the Deux Alpes and Valmorel.

On 9 December 1990 at 4 p.m. the Canadian women’s biathlon team arrived at the hotel and occupied rooms on the first floor. Meanwhile, on the second floor, carpets and lights were still being fitted.

From then on, the hotel boasted a constant stream of prestigious guests both in the run-up to the Winter Olympics in nearby Albertville and during the games.

All the Winter Olympic medal winners paid a visit to Hotel Le Calgary, with Franck’s silver medal in the downhill event further strengthening its appeal.
