Luxury Ski Holidays in Chamonix
Located high in the French Alps and dominated by the stunning Mont Blanc, Chamonix has been a popular winter holiday destination for centuries, having hosted the first ever Winter Olympics in 1924. Prior to this, Chamonix was an extremely popular base for mountaineering and this legacy continues to the present day.
Set in a valley that stretches 20 kilometres from Les Houches to Le Tour, Chamonix provides one of the most stunning settings for a luxury ski holiday in the Alps. Chamonix has a car-free centre full of atmosphere with cobbled streets and beautiful old buildings. Chamonix’s chalet rentals are dotted around the resort and are mostly positioned within a short walk or drive of the slopes
Shops sell everything from souvenirs to high-tech climbing equipment and there are plenty of bars and restaurants for post-ski dining and socialising; although those renting a catered chalet in Chamonix will be able to enjoy delicious cuisine in the privacy of their chalet.
Families and adrenaline-junkies alike will find an array of activities to keep them occupied if skiing is not on the agenda. Take a tour of the Grotte de Glace (ice cave) and Glaciarium at Montenvers or discover the indoor Olympic ice rink. There are also plenty of designated zones for sledging too.

Chamonix is a bustling town made up of a series of satellite villages. Luxury chalet rentals in Chamonix are in high demand and can be found in both the centre of the resort and the surrounding villages.
Just a five-minute drive from the centre of Chamonix is Les Bossons, a popular location with families due to the close proximity of the ski school in Les Houches.

Luxury chalets in the peaceful hamlet of Argentière provide the perfect base for an idyllic ski holiday in Chamonix with both catered and self-catered chalets for guests to choose from. Catered chalets in Chamonix often come with a driving service too, so getting to and from the slopes couldn’t be easier.
For keen skiers, several recently renovated ski-in/ski-out chalets are ideal for those looking to spend as much time on the slopes as possible. Our portfolio also has several properties suitable for large groups looking to spend a luxury ski holiday in Chamonix.
Skiing in Chamonix
Offering 173 km of pistes plus masses of off-piste terrain, there is plenty of skiing to keep you entertained during your stay. The Mont Blanc road tunnel links Chamonix to Courmayeur so it is also possible to ski in Italy with the Mont Blanc Unlimited pass.
Skiing in Chamonix falls into four small, widely separated areas that are individual in character. This can be tricky for mixed ability groups and may require groups to split up or some bussing around between areas. This can be made easier if your ski chalet in Chamonix comes with a driving service.
Most of Chamonix’s skiing is above the tree-line with several beginner areas and blue runs on all four mountains. Confident intermediates can find some testing red pistes and for experts there are many challenging black runs to negotiate and excellent off-piste close to the pistes and from the top of Brevent and Grands Montets. The most famous off-piste run is La Vallee Blanche, a 20 km long spectacular route from the Aiguille du Midi to a point below Montenvers.
Eating & Drinking in Chamonix
Whilst we offer a variety of catered chalets in Chamonix, this cosmopolitan town is packed with bars and restaurants serving a range of international cuisine. On the mountain we recommend La Bergerie de Planpraz. Found at the mid-station of Brevent, this charming restaurant serves a regional menu cooked over a wood fire, accompanied by one of the best views in the valley. If views are important to you, then don’t miss Le 3842 at the top of the Aiguille du Midi. Reached by cable car, this is one of the highest restaurants in Europe with a menu featuring fresh local produce.
For fine dining you can’t beat Albert 1 er, a Michelin-star restaurant with a menu according to the seasons and an extensive wine list. Serving Italian cuisine, Le Comptoir des Alpes is a delight whilst Le Caphorn is the place for delicious seafood. For the best burger in town, head to Poco Loco and if you like pizza then Casa Valerio has over 30 different flavours to choose from.
Regular live music can be found at the foot of Argentiere’s home run on the terrace of Les Marmottons, whilst from 6pm to 10pm the famous Folie Douce hosts an apres-ski party with DJs, dancers and musicians providing the entertainment.
