An Unforgettable Experience
Winter or summer an alpine holiday in glorious Chamonix will give you a lifetime of memories and it doesn't have to cost the earth. Our luxury apartment is available for a party of up to six.
Chamonix is most famous for winter sports, but if skiing, snowboarding and skating are not your scene, a summer of climbing, mountain biking and paragliding in mediterranean weather might be tempting. If you prefer, a more relaxed holiday can be enjoyed sightseeing on the Mont Blanc tramway, the Montenvers railway, a choice of cable cars or stay in Chamonix town with a fine selection of bars and restaurants, cinema, and ...Read more
HOLIDAY APARTMENT CHAMONIX
Chamonix, Rhone-Alpes, France
Additional Location Information
One of the great advantages of ski holidays in Chamonix is its proximity to Geneva airport - less than an hour away. There is a direct road into the town from the airport which remains open throughout the ski season. This makes it the ideal getaway location for your Chamonix holidays.
THE MAGIC OF CHAMONIX
The first successful ascent of Mont Blanc was achieved in 1786 and Chamonix’s fame as the centre of winter activities has grown ever since. In 1924 the first Winter Olympic Games came to Chamonix. and the town has developed over the years with a growing network of cable cars including the awesome Aiguille du Midi ( The highest cable car in the world ), the impressive Montenvers railway climbing up to Mer de Glace and much more. Now classified as a world heritage site, this alpine capital, surrounded by spectacular scenery at the foot of Mont Blanc, offers one of the most challenging ski areas in the world
Overlooked by the majestic Mont Blanc no other resort offers such a wide variety of attractions. The Chamonix valley cuts deeply through Europe’s highest mountains and glaciers. The views are stunning.
Chamonix is a bustling town with plenty of hotels and restaurants, visitors all year round and a lively Saturday market. Cobbled streets, squares and traditional buildings add to the atmosphere. If you lean over the bridge in the centre you might see some white water rafters sweep by. Most of the day and evenings too, the town square and pavement cafes are crowded with visitors taking in the view of Mont Blanc and the glacier. Chamonix shops offer everything from serious sports clothing and equipment to a great variety of fashion shops, supermarkets and hardware stores.
There are many bars around the centre, some with music and some open late. There are plenty of restaurants to suit all pockets and tastes, you will be very unlucky to get a meal which isn’t excellent value. You might want to try one of the hotel restaurants - you will probably be served a superb meal at a surprisingly reasonable cost.
This must be one of the best all round holiday areas in the world in either Winter or Summer.
