Places to holiday in Chamonix

Argentiere’s glacial scenery sits under the peak of Mont Blanc. A ski holiday to Argentiere is best for experienced skiers, as the rugged off-piste presents a challenge for good skiers, and the pistes here are fearsome! However, the après-ski is great, meaning that an apartment here is more than purely a chalet to hang your skis!

Near to Argentiere is the family resort of Les Houches. There are slopes for the more novice of the family members, but the downhill course is considered second only to Kitzbuhel for technical difficulty.

Travel to Chamonix

For cheap flights to Chamonix, it is best to shop around. British Airways, BMI, Ryanair, easyJet and other providers all have deals from most UK airports to Annecy Airport (NCY) or Geneva (GVA), just over the Swiss border.

Nice place

4 of 5
We love the terrace but the beds are not very comfortable and too small for us. The kitchen needs larger pots and lits.

A fantastic stay

5 of 5
We have just returned from a weeks stay in Chamonix. The apartment was very spacious and well equipped with amazing views from every window and the lovely south facing garden. Les Praz itself is a very pretty village with several nice restaurants and provides an excellent base for exploring the Chamonix region and the surrounding area. The owners Anne and John were very friendly and helpful and gave us lots of good ideas and advice about what to see and do. Unfortunately our car broke down while we were in Chamonix and Anne could not have been more helpful, allowing us to stay on until our car was sorted. We has a fantastic stay which we will always remember and would love to return in the future. The Allens
