Chamonix & Argentiere - Skiing In The Shadow Of Mont Blanc, All Year Round

Chamonix is probably best known as the skiing and alpine capital of the world. As a destination it has a reputation for the extreme and this, whilst undoubtedly true, can mask a wide array of sporting and leisure activities (particularly in summer), peace and quiet, great nightlife, and superb scenery that can be enjoyed at whichever pace suits you. Chamonix is the perfect place to come for a weekend break, a week's holiday, a season, or a lifetime, as you will never run out of things to do or tire of the views!

The lively streets of Chamonix are a colourful mix of sport shops, guide offices, restaurants, bars and cafés. Every Saturday the town hosts an outdoor market brimming with local crafts and produce. On bad weather days there is a cinema, a bowling alley, an ice rink, a large sports centre with a pool, gym and indoor climbing wall and numerous museums in which to while away the day.

Just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for finding the appartment Cristal des Glaces in Chamonix and dealing with everything so efficiently the day before we arrived - it was just the right size for a family of six and the view from the balcony was stunning. It was also very clean and we didn't want for anything ( it even had a raclette machine and fondue!). I will certainly keep you on file for next year.
Many thanks once again.
