Resort guide

Chamonix

One of our favourite places in the Alps, Chamonix is busy town rather than a purpose built ski resort. It features several ski areas and a vibrant town centre with a wide range of shops and bars. We have a range of catered chalets both in Chamonix and it’s close neighbour Argentiere. As it’s so close to Geneva airport, Chamonix is a popular destination for short breaks and we have several chalets that are happy to take short break bookings.

Overview

Chamonix is a mecca for winter sports enthusiasts the world over. Located close to Geneva, getting to the resort is very simple indeed. “Cham” is something special although not to everyone’s tastes because of its fragmented nature. Chamonix is a year round town, and is just as popular in summer as it is winter. The town centre has a great selection of shops, bars and restaurants and is a great choice for guests looking for somewhere that offers something more than just skiing. The accommodation tends to be in one of two places, either Chamonix itself or Argentiere. Argentiere is a great place to stay and offers quick access to the best ski area (in our opinion!), Grand Montets. It also has a good selection of shops and bars too, many experienced skiers actually prefer to stay here rather than Chamonix itself. Getting around the ski areas is relatively easy thanks to a good bus and train system but bear in mind that it is not as easy as somewhere like the 3 Valleys or the Espace Killy. More often than not, you will have to travel to the skiing in the mornings and afternoons. So much so that driving down is both easy and popular, its great to have the flexibility of a car so as not to rely on the bus service. There is relatively little après-ski near the ski areas anyway so it doesn’t feel like a great inconvenience!

Chamonix is a wonderful place and any serious skier has to visit but it doesn’t suit skiers looking for convenience or beginners either. Thanks to its proximity to Geneva, it is a really popular choice for weekend breaks.
