Chamonix Mont Blanc:
Chamonix sits at the foot of the majestic Mont Blanc in the French Alps and is widely regarded as the climbing, and more recently skiing, capital of the world. The town has long been known as a veritable playground for extreme sports in both summer and winter - it was home to the first Winter Olympics in 1924 - but it is also an area of outstanding natural beauty offering much to the adventurous skier and sightseer alike.
Unlike many modern ski resorts Chamonix is not a purpose built ski resort and has largely been saved from the concrete monstrosities which blight so much of the Alps. It is blessed with not only an internationally renowned ski area but also with an elegant, cosmopolitan and bustling town centre. With cobbled streets, fin de siecle villas, grand hotels and open squares Chamonix is much more than just another ski resort and has kept much of its original mountain charm and retains a very French, friendly and very alpine atmosphere.
What you can do here:
Chamonix is a large enough town to insure that there is plenty for the non-skier to do. Whatever the pace of your holiday there is an activity to suit everyone from: an impressive sports and swimming complex, beauty salons, spas, ice rink, cross country skiing, paragliding, husky sledding, guided snowshoeing, cinema, museum, casino and weekly market with fresh local produce; and a plethora of shops, designer boutiques, bars, restaurants, terraced cafés and night-clubs, Chamonix offers a combination of skiing, old town charm, après ski and shopping, which few resorts can match. Our bar and restaurant sections provide an overview of what we consider to be some of the best Chamonix has to offer as well as some little gems known only to locals.
Chamonix's Mountains and Views:
Chamonix has without doubt some of the most awe inspiring high mountain scenery to be found anywhere: the tumbling glaciers, soaring Aiguilles, one of Europe?s highest cable cars - the Aiguille du Midi at 3842m - the Mer De Glace and a beautiful alpine town and traditional mountain villages and hamlets dotted along the Chamonix valley. Whether you are looking for a skiing or snowboarding holiday or an alpine summer holiday Chamonix has the answers.
