The Rhone/French Alps region
Chamonix is in the Haute Savoie region of France facing the Mont Blanc chain and has some of the best off - piste skiing in Europe!
Only one hour from Geneva International airport, with shuttles from Geneva airport, a train station and an efficient bus system Chamonix is a holiday destination where you don't need a car, but the property does, however, have parking for 3 cars.
The Mont Blanc massif dominates the town and, winter or summer, you have the privilege of enjoying the most beautiful scenery in Europe. Many people think that Chamonix has the most spectacular scenery that skiers will see anywhere in the world.
Chamonix isn't just a ski resort or an outdoor activity centre; it is a thriving town in its own right; with 12,000 permanent residents which welcomes visitors all year round. Although Chamonix is famed as the extreme sports capital of the world but you don't have to be a world class skier or climber to enjoy it. The non-skier is well catered for also with golf, mountain-biking, husky drives, skating, para-gliding to name but a few. There are also wonderful walks with spectacular scenery. Italy is just 30 minutes away through the Mont Blanc Tunnel.
Chamonix is one of the liveliest aprÃ¨s-ski resorts in the Alps. It is packed with bars and restaurants of every sort and even has its own micro-brewery. From a quick pizza to a gourmet meal at Michelin starred restaurants, there's something for every taste.
Live music starts around 4pm in several venues most days in the winter, and only a little less frequently in the summer. Even the most dedicated partier will struggle to get round the 14 bars, 80 restaurants, 100 shops and 7 discotheques in the average stay of a week.
There is a museum and art gallery, a cinema and a casino. In addition there is a large sports complex with a sports hall, indoor and outdoor ice rink, speed skating rink, 19 tennis courts (quick and clay) including 4 indoor courts, squash courts, swimming-pool complex with water-slide & fitness centre (saunas, Turkish baths, solarium). Chamonix is the only alpine town able to offer such a wide selection of entertainment.
Chamonix is undoubtedly one of the World's top five ski resorts and includes four ski areas, Les Grands Montets, Le BrÃ©vent, La FlÃ©gÃ¨re and La Domaine de Balme, there are 50 lifts serving 168km of piste. Chamonix also has the largest and most widely available amount of off piste skiing in Europe, including the most famous perhaps being the VallÃ©e Blanche, one of the greatest experiences of a lifetime for an intermediate or above skier.
The Chamonix ski areas are easily accessible using the bus network and offer a vast range of beginner and intermediate skiing, as well as limitless off-piste skiing for the expert. If you don't want to take the bus, we will take you to the slopes in the morning and collect you in the afternoon.
In addition there are about a dozen resorts within an hour's drive, which means that you can always go where the snow and or weather is best. These resorts include St Gervais, les Contamines, les Houches, MÃ©gÃ¨ve and Flaine in France; Courmayeur and La Thuile in Italy and Verbier in Switzerland.
There are more visitors to Chamonix in the summer than the winter; drawn by the beauty of the mountains and the wide range of activities available.
Of course, it's a mecca for climbers but there are also many marked paths for long or short walks along the high routes through the mountains.
Some of the other activities also include; Mountain biking along controlled trails Paragliding , Rafting, Canyoning , Swimming (lakes, indoor and outdoor pools) Windsurfing, Fishing, Horse Riding and Golf, Adventure Parks, Via Ferrata, Children's playground (with the Aquajet!) and s great Summer Luge
