Majestic Mont Blanc, one of the world’s natural wonders dominates the area. Chamonix is an ancient mountain town with a stylish atmosphere and a blend of French charm, varied skiing and modern facilities that few other Alpine resorts can match. People return time after time and always discover something new.
The ski resort Chamonix with its pedestrianized cobbled streets and squares, beautiful buildings and fast running river has an excellent choice of quality shops, boutiques, cafes, bars, restaurants, clubs, casino and a Saturday market that should not be missed.
