The Southern Alps’ first five-star resort in Auron! Le Monde des Neiges – the Southern Alps’ first five-star resort – will be opening its doors in Auron, in the Mercantour area. The concept combines a top-of-therange location and resort open most of the year. The inauguration of the first phase, including an apartment hotel and several shops, is scheduled in February 2020. Eventually, the five-star resort is set to feature a hotel with 55 rooms, a 1,200m2 spa, kid club and 5 thematic restaurants. Its wood and stone architecture is inspired by the barns of Vallée de la Tinée.
