Chamonix France For Ski and Mountain Chalet Rentals and Vacation Rentals
The breathtaking mountains and the village of Chamonix-Mont-Blanc sit near the borders with both Italy and Switzerland. It boasts 108 kilometers of ski slopes for all levels – from long and challenging slopes above the tree line to fun trails that have you whizzing past beautiful trees; from snow-board parks to off-piste, as well as beginners’ slopes and cross-country, there is something for everyone. To be precise, the area offers 69 pistes including 10 black pistes, 20 red, 28 blue and 8 green, and 2 areas for new snow sports. And miles of great off-piste.
In addition to skiing and snowboarding, activities in the area include paragliding, snowmobiling, both winter and summer luge, ice skating, tennis, hiking, golf, a forest adventure park with ziplines, and a park of wild mountain animals at the foot of Mont Blanc.
Chamonix is home to delightful shopping, with pedestrian streets lined with a wide range of shops, and some of the most prestigious brands. You can purchase every sports article under the sun, but also fashion, jewelry, bags, decor, antiques, and books to curl up within your Chamonix chalet rental. Local cheeses are a specialty; you will want to try Reblouchon, Tomme, and of course, Raclette. The farmers’ market is full of local products, offering plenty of ideas for delicious local products for your meals at home, either on your chalet rental’s terrace or in front of a roaring fire.
You can also enjoy one of Chamonix’s luxury spas for a post-slope massage.
In the afternoons, enjoy tea and pastries in a charming tea-room, and in the evening an aperitif and then a fabulous dinner at one of the town’s incredible restaurants – many with a view. After dinner, Chamonix comes to life with nightclubs and cocktail bars. Or, if you prefer, settle into your cozy Chamonix vacation rental with your family or friends, enjoy a Raclette and the local wine with the sense of well-being that only comes from a thrilling day on the mountain.- Read less
