LUXURY SKI HOLIDAYS IN CHAMONIX
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. Chamonix offers a wide range of outdoor activities; from skiing and snowboarding to hiking and biking, and much more.
Chamonix is also a mecca for mountaineering and climbing. The skiing resort has an attractive, bustling old town centre, and the smaller, quieter ski villages of Argentière, Les Houches and Vallorcine offer a different style of resort life.
Around 5pm, the Après-Ski starts with many options, such as the Chambre Neuf Bar, the Jekyll and Hyde pub, Bar du Moulin, La Cantina and the bar d’UP. Very popular bars are Folie Douce, Elevation 1904 where you can have cocktails, you also will find a huge selection of beers. From a culinary point of view, Chamonix is not a blank slate either. Enjoy a menu at the Atmosphere restaurant in the city centre (traditional Savoyard cuisine) or be seduced by the Italian delicacies of the Tuscan chef Auro Bucci at the L'Impossible restaurant.
The undisputed best restaurant in Chamonix is the Michelin-starred restaurant Albert 1er. We also recommend dining at restaurant Le Sérac (1 Michelin star) in Saint-Gervais-les-Bains, only 13 kilometres distance to Chamonix.
