The Rhône-Alpes region

Rhône-Alpes, just north of Provence-Alpes-Côte-d'Azur, is in south-east France and shares its eastern borders with Italy and Switzerland. The région, and particularly the départements Savoie and Haute-Savoie, is home to some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. In the winter it's a white-washed world of snowcapped peaks where everyone takes to the ski-slopes. In the summer months it's an entirely different place where you can enjoy the lowland pleasures of hiking through flower-filled meadows, swimming in the lakes or enjoying sightseeing.

Chamonix Town Centre

Chamonix Mont-blanc is in a beautiful Alpine valley close to Geneva and the Swiss/ Italian borders. It offers perhaps the best advanced skiing in the Alps as well as plenty of forgiving beginners slopes and intermediate runs over a lift system which runs for 15km through the valley. Chamonix is one of the oldest ski resorts in France and thus retains plenty of charm and character, as well as being large enough to offer a very varied range of activities, unlike some of the newer purpose built resorts. In winter, skiing, snowboarding, snow shoeing and walking (and of course the wonderful apres ski and hearty Savoie cuisine), are the main attractions but there is also a wonderful time for children, teenagers and adults to be had in the summer. There is a lovely golf course 5 minutes from town in Les Praz, as well as tennis, skating, swimming and rock climbing at the large modern Sports Centre, as well as mountain biking and horseback riding - all in a pristine Alpine environment. Chamonix is a very versatile resort with excellent slopes and infrastructure for skiing and snowbarding but also offers the attractions of a large town to non-skiers as well as those who prefer to ski in a more desultory manner!!

Chamonix offers a wonderful array of shops as well as a huge choice of restaurants offering both local Savoie fare (think fondue, mountain meats and raclette! - wonderful when it is cold out and after a hard day on the slopes!) as well as traditional French, Chinese, Italian and Greek cuisine.

At night Chamonix is very lively until the small hours with plenty of entertainment for all age groups - bars with live music, small night clubs , discos and lively 'young' snack bars.

As befits a town of Chamonix's size, there are classical and rock/reggae concerts, cinemas, exhibitions, wonderful Saturday markets and museums to be visited. In Winter there are nighttime children and teenager's ski/ snowboard competitions organised by l'Ecole de Ski Francais which are always well attended.

This year Chamonix has had a bumper year for snow and a season which normally extends until mid-April was continued until the end of May!! Officially the season begins in mid-December but the lifts may open sooner if the snow conditions are right.

The piste areas in the Chamonix Valley are spread over 15km, from Les Houches at the entrance to the valley to Le Tour, at the head, which is linked to Vallorcine and some lovely advanced and intermediate runs; there are also plenty of sunny slopes for beginners as well. Les Grands Montets in Argentiere offers experienced ski and snowboarding slopes as well as a fun snow board park. Les Chosalets offers beginners pretty wooded slopes in a lovely setting . La Flegere in Les Praz, which connects to Le Brevent in central Chamonix , is a winter wonderland of interconnected pistes. One lift pass covering all the ski areas and the ski buses is available at a reasonable price from La Compagnie MontBlanc . Non-skiers can also enjoy the lifts and experience the quaint restaurants/bars in their spectacular mountain settings while watching the ski action.

It is never possible to be bored in the Chamonix Valley! The Golf Club de Chamonix has a high standard and excellent facilties with 18 holes in a beautiful alpine environment. Don't miss Le Cabane, a delightful restaurant located next to the golf course in Les Praz. There are also some lovely walks alongside the River Arve here too.

In the summer, hiking is a great pleasure,wiith many lovely walks on wooded paths or alpine meadows with spectacular views and crisp mountain air, often punctuated by charming chalet snack bars/restaurants such as the famous La Floria in Les Praz or La Cremerie Du Glacier in Argentiere.

Children and teenagers love Les Planards - in winter a beginner's slope - but in summer an exciting journey through the tree tops, with zip wires, bungee jumping and much more! as well as a summer luge (toboggan run) and playground.

In summer, paragliding is very popular, as is mountain biking and horseback riding.

it is also nice to cross borders into Switzerland or Italy. One can drive , via the Tunnel Montblanc, to Aoste in Italy for lunch, shopping or sightseeing, in just 45 minutes! Similarly, Montreux and Lausanne in Switzerland are only an hour's drive away.

Review 1-8 of 8

"Excellent - Will use again when in Chamonix"

The chalet was perfect. I couldn't fault a thing. Great location, size, facilities and cleanliness. We had 8 adults in there and there was more than enough space for us in the lounge, kitchen, board storage, bedrooms and bathrooms. The views are spectacular, especially from the balcony. We also took two cars and there was ample space to park both. There is a great restaurant/bar 50 metres down the street called Jekyll and Hyde which I would highly recommend also. The chalet is ideal for a large group of friends or family. It's painful to write this review as I want to be back there instead of being at work!!
