Chamonix has 200 years of mountain sports history and is one of the most famous destinations in the world. It is situated in southeast France close to the Italian and Swiss borders. With its 5 large skiing areas, Chamonix Valley welcomes skiing enthusiasts at all levels. Between the two ends of the valley Les Houches and Le Tour, we have the two south-facing areas Le Brevent and La Flegere. Here you can ski with an astonishing view over Mont Blanc. On the north side, there's the village Argentiere where we have the world famous area named Les Grands Montets with its challenging long runs. Finally, in the heart of Chamonix, there is the gondola going up to Aguille du Midi. It is from here you can descend down the great VALLE BLANCHE. A 22 km long run. When not skiing, there are plenty of things to do. Enjoy relaxing in one of the Valley’s spas, shopping in the lively streets of Chamonix, why not explore a famous after-ski in one of the many of the town bars. For those who prefer a calmer atmosphere maybe a cup of tea or coffee with something sweet at one of the well-visited cafés would be the solution. In the evening there are plenty of restaurants where you can get a traditional dinner or gastronomic meal in a first-class restaurant. Lastly, for the late-nighters, there are also a couple of discos.
