Pres des Cimes is situated right on the pistes of les Houches, offering a genuine ski-in, ski-out location which is a rarity in the Chamonix Valley. The chalet sits high up the mountain and has superb panoramic views of the surrounding peaks and into the valley below. For skiing, you can ski straight onto the Aillouds (blue) piste from the garden which leads straight to the main lift, le Prarion, in les Houches.
Please note that it is advisable to have a car in this location, there is no public transport that passes close to the chalet.
Other Activities: Rock climbing
Golf: There are several good quality golf courses in the local area, including Evian (venue for the European Masters), Esery and Bossey as well as several other mountain courses, all within an hour's drive. However, Chamonix has its own golf club, 5 km to the east of the town centre, in les Praz. The 18 hole course was designed by the world famous Robert Trent Jones Senior in setting between the Mont-Blanc range and the massif of the Aiguilles rouges. There can't be many courses in the world with views to rival the Chamonix course.
Green fees vary from low to high season and booking is possible from 24 hours in advance.
