The Rhone/French Alps region
The region is fantastically varied and there are many interesting places to visit within an hour's drive of the Chamonix valley.
The resort of St. Gervais is a 20 minute drive away. It has a large, varied ski area which is good for families and is also famous for its spas. A little further on, and included in the same lift pass, is Megeve, an exclusive resort with expensive shops and restaurants.
The Italian resort of Courmayeur is approximately 30 minutes' drive from Les Houches (through the Mont Blanc tunnel). Courmayeur makes for a great day trip with its excellent skiing, good mountain restaurants and up-market little town with cobbled streets full of cafes and chic shops.
Verbier in Switzerland is about an hour's drive over the mountains and has a great ski area, gourmet restaurants and exclusive bars.
In summer,the picturesque old town and lake of Annecy and the city of Geneva, both about an hour away, make good day trips.
The Chamonix / Les Houches area
The first 'resort' in the Chamonix valley, Les Houches is a relaxed, self-contained village lying at the foot of Mont Blanc and surrounded by spectacular scenery. It has a variety of excellent restaurants, bars and characterful little shops including a great patisserie, as well as other amenities such as supermarkets, ski shops, church, tourist information, etc.
Les Houches has a beautiful, varied ski area characterized by tree-lined slopes surrounded by majestic peaks. It is ideal for families and mixed ability groups with 21 runs ranging from easy green runs at the top of the Bellevue and Prarion lifts to the challenging black men's worldcup downhill run where the famous 'Kandahar' race takes place in January. Les Houches has the best selection of mountain restaurants in the valley, some extremely picturesque nestled among the trees and some with great views. The restaurant at the top of the Prarion lift, with its large terrace and stunning views, is ideal for non-skiers to enjoy the atmosphere with skiing friends or relatives. It is possible to ski back to approximately 50 metres of the apartment, arriving just behind the Bellevue cable car. Very conveniently, the run stops right outside the Kitsch Inn, perfect for an apres-ski drink with live music!
In summer, Les Houches is the starting point for many hiking and mountain-biking trails, or even for more gentle walks from the top of the Bellevue cable car with stunning views over to the snow-capped Mont Blanc. There is a fishing lake and tennis courts within 8-10 mins walk of the apartment and a huge variety of activities within a short drive including white-water rafting and rock climbing.
Approximately 3 miles from Les Houches, Chamonix is a large, lively, cosmopolitan, yet authentic town, world-famous for its skiing and mountaineering possibilities. Chamonix offers an abundance of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, up-market shops and all kinds of sporting possibilities. It also has a bowling alley and a large sports centre with an excellent swimming pool with high twisting water slide for kids.
Chamonix and Argentiere, which lies a little further along the valley, offer more challenging skiing possibilities including extreme off-piste challenges. Chamonix (the Aiguille de Midi cablecar) is also the starting point for the famous 27 km descent known as the Vallee Blanche. The ski bus (free with lift pass) runs regularly between Les Houches and the other areas in the Chamonix valley.
