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.

Carrefour supermarket with better prices and a wider selection was a short drive away and the apartment had underground parking. For dietary reasons we did a lot of cooking and next time would remember to bring condiments, herbs and spices plus a dish drainer and dishwasher tablets. Apart from that, everything you could need was there including a very generous supply of coat hangers.

Fully equipped should you want to cater for yourselves but only 2 minutes from numerous restaurants. 2 Supermarkets also within 10 minutes walk. Good parking facilities which was sufficiently large for our car. Would stay here again should we return to Chamonix
