Chamonix, queen city of mountaineering!

In this international base camp of the greatest conquests in alpine history, it is difficult to resist the call of the mountains. His Majesty the Mont-Blanc is omnipresent there, and a friendly and sporty atmosphere reigns there in all seasons.

In addition to mountaineering, Chamonix benefits from a very diverse off-piste ski area in one of the most beautiful mountainous settings in Europe. In summer, many hikes are possible from the village or the ski lifts, accessible for all levels.

During your break day or when you return from activity, we strongly advise you to sit on the terrace of a café in order to contemplate this wild nature within arm’s reach. You can also taste typical Savoyard or European cuisine in one of its many restaurants. Ultimately, you are unlikely to resist doing a bit of shopping along the busy pedestrianized streets.

Haute-Savoie (FR)

Haute-Savoie is located in central eastern France, bordering Switzerland and Italy.

Vast region of contrasts, with in particular the Mont-Blanc massif on the one hand, and the gentle limestone and green pre-Alps on the other.

Chamonix is undoubtedly the flagship destination of the region, with a large international attendance throughout the year.

Mont-Blanc is omnipresent there, with its 4809 m which makes it the highest peak in Western Europe.

As you will have understood, mountaineering is an essential part of the culture of this region. Freeride, climbing, mountain races, are part of the daily vocabulary of our Savoyards.

The spirit is sporty, but the possible activities are numerous. And why not try another national sport very present in Chamonix and well known to our Asian friends: shopping?

Haute-Savoie is easily accessible by road, thanks to its motorway network, its Mont-Blanc tunnel and the Col des Montets. Geneva airport is very close there.
