Estates and Chalets in Chamonix

Why Chamonix?

This sensational ski resort in the Rhône-Alpes region is one of the best places in the world to ski, whether you're a novice or a pro. Mont Blanc, the largest mountain in western Europe, is a stunning, snow-capped sight, and the cosy coffee shops, rustic restaurants and independent shops are the icing on the cake.

Self-catering accommodation in Chamonix is excellent. If you're looking for a cosy chalet for two or a family-sized apartment, you're in the right place. All you need to do is pick your favourite holiday rental for your exhilarating skiing break in Chamonix.

Skiing, snowboarding and more

Chamonix is an extreme sports paradise. Whether you want to scale the heights of a mountain, cycle through the valley or paraglide over the hills, there are many ways to get that adrenaline rush. For something a little different, try river rafting or horseback riding. If you prefer to take things at a slower pace, there are many ski schools that help newcomers take their first tentative slides on the snow. For non-skiers, spending the day simply wandering around the streets and shops is a joy in itself.

Chamonix is just as beautiful in the summer as it is in the winter and the activities are just as entertaining. Take a cable-car up the Midi and enjoy a refreshing drink and amazing views when you arrive. For a train ride with atmosphere, board a red retro engine on the Montenvers railway reaching Mer de Glace glacier. The ice caves and exhibitions on crystals and Alpine fauna are fascinating. Alternatively, a simple stroll around enjoying the breathtaking views will inspire you.

Alpine picnics

There are some fantastic farmer's markets in Chamonix, so why not prepare yourselves a picnic at your holiday rental before going on a high alpine walk? You can breathe in the clean, mountain air and admire the beautiful wildlife before settling down in a quiet spot for a bite to eat.
