Facing Montclar les 2 Vallées Ski Resort 09 70 35 33 01
Montclar les 2 Vallées is one of the most popular holiday resorts in the Southern Alps. Located at the foot of the ski slopes, Hotel Le Saint Jean offers the perfect setting for a memorable getaway in the heart of nature.
Managed by Bruno, Maguy and their daughter Camille, our hotel guarantees a warm welcome and personalised service.
Our History, A Hotel Passed down Generations
Hotel Le Saint Jean was the first building erected in the Saint Jean Montclar resort, which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2021.
Montclar was built for and by the inhabitants of the commune and the Vallée de la Blanche. In 1959 Henri Savornin (Bruno's father) was elected mayor. A local child, he aimed to fight against rural depopulation. With the help of dedicated teams who contributed with human or material resources, he took the challenge of boosting the local economy. 50 years later, the resort is still up and running and continues to evolve.
Bruno has always been involved in the life of the resort, first by collecting stones on the slopes, cutting trees to widen the ski runs and later, with a group of friends, his brother and sisters, they organised cabaret shows for the resort's guests.
He learnt cooking with his uncle Raymond Gras, manager of Hotel Le Saint Jean in the early 80s. Then he met Maguy, a waitress at the hotel who came straight from Southern France. Together, they formed the perfect team.
They participated in the opening of the second hotel of the resort, Hotel Espace, and afterwards left with their four children for Corrèze. There, Bruno was the manager of a Balladin hotel and the village tourist office. Sometimes, Maguy would work with him or with her brother.
When they returned home 5 years later, Bruno took over the management of Auzet Hotel in Le Vernet, 15 km from Montclar, and Maguy was hired at Hotel Le Saint Jean, which was rented out to holiday camps at the time for want of management.
By the end of 1999, Bruno and Maguy made the decision to take over Hotel Le Saint Jean. With the help of their 4 children, they started to undertake renovation works: flooring, paint, beds, everything was upgraded. And in 2007, we stepped into the 21st century by installing a lift! The hotel was then completely revamped and the rooms redesigned.
Their passion for the trade and Saint Jean is so deep that they have passed it on to their two children: Thibault, the 3rd of his name, is a seasoned chef and runs his own restaurant with a friend in Angers; Camille, the 2nd of her name, who after exploring various areas, came back home in 2020 to take over the business when her parents retire.
But don't worry, you can continue to enjoy Bruno's dishes for a few more years.
Our rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated, featuring a combination of modernity and traditional colours from Provence. They are equipped with vintage bathrooms but renovation works are underway. Each room can accommodate up to 5 people and offers a view of Dormillouse or the Vallée de la Blanche. We provide practical storage, cosy bedding and a quiet environment for a peaceful night's sleep.
Come and spend your holidays in one of the most lively village resorts in the area.
A BREATH OF FRESH AIR!
Both in summer and winter, the hotel and restaurant are perfect for the whole family. We also offer a mountain bike rental in summer, skis in winter, and baby equipment within easy reach. The "Famille Plus" labelled resort is designed with you in mind; the possibility of setting off in a different direction because Dad is a sportsman and must accompany the children, Mum takes her time to get ready, to then take the little one to the daycare and eventually meet Dad on the slopes...
To each one his/her own pace without the inconveniences of the trip.
