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.
