Ski resort city at the foot of Mont Blanc


Chamonix – both city and mountain ski resort – is known the world over. It is popular for its exceptional natural setting as well as its international location.
Located along the French, Swiss and Italian borders, the city of Chamonix enjoys a unique international appeal as a winter and summer resort. Nearly 10,000 multicultural residents live there year round, with some 100,000 visitors coming every day in summer.
Athletes, tourists and residents of all nationalities come here in summer and winter for the same passion – the mountains – and a certain way of life found around Mont Blanc.
Just a one hour’s drive from the Geneva International Airport in Switzerland, Chamonix benefits from easy access and quality services all year long. 
From elegant fine dining and bistro restaurants to luxury and innovative concept hotels, spas and wellness centres, bars and après-ski venues, concierge services, private chalets and upscale apartments, the discreet resort at 1,035 metres of elevation at the foot of Mont Blanc offers its international clientele a superb experience for young and old alike.
There is a wide range of activities in all seasons for any occasion and for every visitor, whether experts in mountain sports or not. Activities at the resort include climbing Mont Blanc, on-piste skiing, cross-country skiing and and off-piste on glaciers and the area’s five ski resorts (Flégère, Grands Montets, Brévent, Balme Vallorcine, Les Houches), exploring the Aiguille du Midi, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, golfing and many other outdoor activities.
Between breathtaking views from Mont Blanc and the Aiguilles, Chamonix is constantly renewing its offer and experiences, whether you are looking for a mountain lifestyle or just a breath of fresh air an hour away from Geneva and Lake Annecy.
