Situated at the foot of Mont-Blanc, Chamonix is considered a Mecca for sporting enthusiasts, be it skiers, snow boarders, mountain bikers, climbers, mountaineers, hikers, paragliders, to name but a few! Being a year-round town it also caters wonderfully for the less sporty or bad weather days with fantastic visitor attractions, such as the Aiguille du Midi - a viewing platform at 3842m, the Mer de Glace and Ice Grotto, museums, a bowling alley, indoor climbing walls, a bilingual cinema and a great selection of shops and restaurants.
The Chamonix valley is at the end of the A40 'autoroute Blanche' offering unparalleled ease of access by car and Chalet Beaumont is just an hour's drive from Geneva. Please note that we usually recommend having a car when staying at Chalet Beaumont as this really helps you to make the most of your time in the valley as Chamonix is more spread out than most mountain resorts. With lots of free parking at the chalet, a straightforward drive into the valley from the motorway and car parks at all the ski lifts it is very easy to get about by car in Chamonix!
The Chalet Beaumont apartments are situated in the quiet hamlet of Le Mont, just above Les Bossons, between the village of Les Houches and Chamonix town centre, which are both five minutes drive away. The chalet's views of the mountains and valley are stunning and take your breath away every time you see them...
The distance by car from Chamonix's ski lifts are as follows:
Brévent, in Chamonix town: five minutes
Les Houches: 10 minutes
Flégère: 15 minutes
Grand Montets, in Argentière : 20 minutes
Le Tour: 25 minutes
Both Courmayeur in Italy and St Gervais, linking to Mégève, are also 25 minutes drive from us.
On foot and by bus
Walking down from the chalet there are three local restaurants and a bus stop 15 minutes away. The bus will take you into Chamonix town and to the Flégère ski lift. The train station of Les Bossons is a 15 minute walk down the hill and in the warmer months it is a lovely 30-45 minute stroll into town. As the bus service stops at about 7.30pm you would need to book a taxi back after this time. Please bear in mind that it is a relatively steep walk back up to the chalet so add 10 minutes for walking back.
Going up from the chalet, you can enjoy a 45 minute hike up to a viewing platform overlooking the glacier and if you peer hard, you may see ice climbers risking life and limb amongst the awesome crevasses and pyramids of ice. There is also a chair-lift which opens in the summer season taking visitors from the valley floor directly to the viewing platform and the Buvette du Glacier des Bossons, a pleasant café where you can get a drink and a snack whilst enjoying the stunning views.
Continuing on, now a more serious route, you will eventually come to the junction of the two glaciers, Bossons and Taconnaz, where you can marvel at the spectacular views of Mont Blanc's ice falls. Some of the most famous hikes in the valley begin on our doorstep and indeed the first ascent of Mont Blanc, by Jacques Balmat and Doctor Paccard, started from our hamlet in 1786.
