The Rhone/French Alps region

Chamonix is the perfect holiday destination for any season! You'll be surprised at the size of this alpine mountain town and the amount it has to offer you. Chamonix sits at the foot of Mont Blanc in the heart of the French Alps, displaying glaciers and breathtaking views of the snow capped mountains all around.

The skiing in Chamonix has a reputation for steep unforgiving runs, and there is enough on-piste challenge to provide a work-out for even the most advanced skiers. There is also plenty of skiing for the intermediate skier, enormous off-piste potential and some of the best ski touring in the world.

Historic Chamonix is a cosmopolitan town full of life and incredible scenery. In addition to the Ski season for which it is famous, there are hundreds of shops, countless restaurants, bars, clubs and a casino. There is also the sports centre with indoor and outdoor pools, ice rink, rock climbing, paragliding, water rafting, mountain bike trails and an 18 hole golf course. There's always plenty to do for the children too. Chamonix also has a the highest cable car in Europe to take you to the top of Mont Blanc and the Montenvers train to visit the Sea of Ice glacier and ice grotto. Plus cinema, Alpine Museum and a local market on Saturday morning - selling a wide range of local produce.

With a huge range of on and off mountain activities, there is something for everyone throughout the year. Chamonix is a place you'll want to come back to time and time again!

Chamonix

Alpinism, or mountaineering, was invented in Chamonix in 1760 by a swiss naturist called Horace Benedict de Saussure. His challenge to anyone willing to attempt it, was to climb Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe with it's peak at 4,808m / 15,774 ft. Until then, no-one had thought of climbing mountains for fun. The challenge was finally accomplished 26 years later in 1786, by Jacques Balmat & Dr Paccard. A statue celebrating their success stands in Place Balmat today.

Alpinism became hugely popular amongst the Victorian middle-classes in England and across Europe, with Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix being formed in 1821 and the first ever winter olympics being held here in 1924. Today, Chamonix has around 10,000 permanent inhabitants, with a further 30,000 visiting in the winter, and 60,000 people in resort during the summer months, and has around 5 million visitors per year.

Situated at 45°55′8″N, 6°51′55″E, Chamonix is an hour's drive from Geneva, and the Chamonix valley runs from northeast to southwest, with Mont Blanc (4,808m) towering over the southeast, and Le Brevant (2525m) on the northwest. The valley is made up of a number of hamlets including Le Tour (1,462m) at the top of the valley, through Argentiere (1,252m), Les Praz (1,060m), Chamonix (1,035m), Les Bossons (1,12m) & Les Houches (796m). The valleys is connect to Martigny in Switzerland via the Col de Montets (1,461m) and is an hour drive from the Swis ski resort of Verbier.

"Excellent week"

The apartment in very well situated - right on the main pedestrian area - with shops and restaurants just a few steps from the apartment. The private car park is only a few feet from the door of the apartment block and the lift is right by the door. It made unloading the luggage so easy.
We found the Chamonix all Year Round staff very helpful for example when we needed help with the internet.
We were in Chamonix during the Ultra Trail Mont Blanc events - a fabulous week, always something to look at and someone to cheer for.

Thank you for your lovely review of Apartment Gumbrell. We're glad you enjoyed your stay in the centre of Chamonix as well as the popular UTMB event, and thank you for the lovely feedback about our team. We hope to see you again in Chamonix soon.
