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.

Gill & Andy made us feel very welcome. The apartment was perfect for a a very comfortable and stylist stay near to all the amenities Chamonix has to offer. The beds were extremely comfortable. We would definitely go again.

Starting with a warm welcome from the lovely Ashley, we had a fantastic week in this comfortable apartment. It is so well equipped with really high quality furniture, linens, crockery and every possible kitchen utensil you'd ever need. A really deep bath and buckets of hot water every day were very welcome after a long day's motorcycling over the alpine passes. The apartment is really centrally located with bars,restaurants, tea shops, ice cream parlours and well stocked supermarkets all within a couple of hundred yards. Despite its central location the apartment was peaceful and relaxing. On Friday night the bar below got a little noisier than usual but it didn't last long and you can either close the very efficient double glazed windows or wear earplugs! Sitting out on the huge terrace for lunch or dinner on sunny afternoon/evening was delightful. You are hardly overlooked at all and it's a great vantage point for watching the comings and goings in the street. In my view this is the best apartment in Chamonix - if it's free on your dates snap it up. Thanks Mark
