Seen by many as the thriving capital of the Alps, Chamonix is the most accessible of resorts; a fragmented region of many ski areas, hamlets and villages.

Chamonix is a busy little town of Victorian hotels and mountain chalets located at the foot of Mont Blanc. Les Houches, Les Bossons, Les Praz, Les Tines, Montroc, Le Lavancher, Argentière, Le Buet, Le Tour, Vallorcine – are all considered to be within Chamonix.

No other place does all-mountain skiing better than Chamonix. With long runs below the tree line for when conditions aren’t great and big glacier runs at high altitude, it is the mountain resort for all seasons. With some of the most challenging skiing around, Chamonix attracts the experts as well as the beginners. With numerous ski schools and private guides like Evolution 2 around, Chamonix is ideal for a family holiday and there is no need to worry as they will lead you to the pistes that suit your style.

The valley itself is similarly varied, with all types of accommodation from Relais & Châteaux boutique hotels to privately owned luxury chalets and apartments. Some of our top picks include Chalet Saphir and Apartment Angelina.
