Resort Guide

Chamonix is a world ski and mountaineering capital welcoming over 2.5million international visitors every year. Chamonix is an authentic resort located at the foot of Europe’s highest peak Mont Blanc, bordering both Switzerland and Italy. This alpine village is steeped in culture with true mountaineering soul, there is always something going on in this enchanting town of 10,000 inhabitants.

Whether you come to Chamonix to experience its white-capped snow peaks and glaciers in the winter or to relax and breathe the fresh mountain air in summer, Chamonix Holidays can assist you to find the right accommodation suited to your holiday requirements.

Chamonix is different to many other ski resorts in France as it is not a purpose built ski in – ski out resort, in fact the Chamonix Valley stretches from Servoz to Vallorcine on the Swiss boarder and encompasses 6 main ski areas.

You have a wide choice of accommodation within the valley’s main villages from Les Houches, Les Bossons, Chamonix, Les Praz, Argentiere, Montroc/ Le Tour to Vallorcine for your summer or winter holiday. All of Chamonix’s sports and activities can be accessed from these villages, some more specific to your certain holiday requirements than others.

There are 5 main ski resorts and one famous off-piste lift l’Aiguille de Midi:
•    In Les Houches = Les Houches
•    In Chamonix = Le Brevent and the Aiguille du Midi (off-piste only)
•    In Les Praz = Flégère
•    In Argentiere = Les Grands Montets
•    In Le Tour/Vallorcine = Le Tour/Balme


On presentation of your guest card, you can travel free of charge on the local Chamonix Bus network (excluding the night bus) and also on the train between Servoz and Vallorcine. This bus service interlinks all the ski resorts making it a great way to try out a different ski field each day. You can collect this card from Chamonix Holidays upon your arrival.


If you choose to stay in central Chamonix there is a short walk up a steep hill to access Brevent ski area. There is also accommodation located within a few minutes walk of Brevent’s Telepherique. Or you can use the bus service to access the ski lift.


Flégère is interconnected with Brévent and you can stay in Les Praz (5min drive from central Chamonix) for an easy walk to the Flegere Telepherique.


There are other smaller beginner lift areas including Les Planards and Le Savoy walking access from central Chamonix.


L’Aiguille du Midi Telepherique is located in the Chamonix town right next to accommodation studios and apartments in Cham Sud.


Les Houches is a great resort to choose if you have a young family or want ski-in ski-out accommodation.


If you choose to stay in Argentiere (15 mins by car from Chamonix) you will have direct access to Les Grand Montets ski resort which in the winter has a snowpark for the park riders and skiers amongst you. The accommodation is within 10 minutes walking distance.


Le Tour/Balme is connected by lift to Vallorcine so you can either find accommodation in Vallorcine or Montroc villages or take the local free bus service.
