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.

Apartment with great view in central location

5 of 5
We stayed in this apartment with our four kids and there was enough room for all of us. The apartment is centrally located, stores and some of the cable cars are in walking distance. The kitchen is well equipped so it was easy to prepare meals. But the best is of course the huge roof top terrace with views to the Brévent, Aiguille du Midi and Mont Blanc. A great place to have supper after a long day of hiking!

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.
