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.

The apartment is tradustional with its wooden features and has everything you ever need . Just off the main thoroughfare means you get plenty of peace but the action is 5 mins away if you want it. Big supermarket 5 min walk away as are chair lifts, cable cars and glacier trains... so you don't even use your car! Owners Direct... please make it clear which property on the road it is as there are two the same and we weren't sure.... (it's the second one down the hill) and ensure keysafe code sent as we had to contact the owner.... who came back to us in five minutes so was fine.... and we did only book that day so may have missed the automatic email ). Bin and recycling are around the front of the property tucked away... so be useful to have that detail In the flat)
