Winter in the Chamonix Valley: Chamonix valley is one of the most famous skiing and snowboarding areas in the French Alps. Sat at the foot of Mont Blanc, Europe's highest mountain, Chamonix itself is a vibrant town that swells ten-fold every season with holiday makers keen to take advantage of the valley's easy access to the mountains.

Skiing in Chamonix takes place primarily in five distinctly separate ski domaines. Entering the valley first you pass Les Houches with its stunning views of Mont Blanc.

5km further on you enter Chamonix town and the Brevent lift system that links to La Flegere lifts to create the biggest and sunniest domaine.

Another 5km brings you to the village of Argentiere and Grant Montets. Reaching up to 3,300m the upper area is off-piste heaven and the lower slopes great piste.

At the back of the valley lies Le Tour, renowned as the most 'family' of all the domaines.

For all it's pisted runs Chamonix is just as famous for its off-piste and ski mountaineering.

Summer in the Chamonix valley: Summertime in Chamonix in the French Alps is no less action packed than winter. With Mont Blanc sat right above it the valley is a Mecca for rock climbing, mountaineering, mountain biking, paragliding or just walking in some of Europe's most spectacular mountains.

Chamonix's lift system works through the summer taking mountain enthusiasts high into fantastic terrain. On the south side of the valley the Aiguille de Midi lift takes you in two hops up to nearly 4,000m where you get access to the glaciers and rock faces of Mont Blanc.

Opposite lies the Brevent which offers access to the sunnier side of the valley and brilliant hillwalking and rock climbing.

The halfway stations of both the Brevent and the Aiguille de Midi have world class paraglider launches and tandem flights are easily found in town

Les Houches and Grand Montets are the prime locations for down hill mountain biking and

COSY, CONTEMPORARY, CLEAN AND GOOD LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
This is a lovely chalet just a short walk (5-10 mins) from the foot of Grand Montet slopes. The transfer from Geneva airport was about 90 minutes and very straightforward.
It is warm, contemporary, clean and well equipped. We cooked most evenings and relaxed at the table with a bottle of wine or retired downstairs to watch one of the DVDs supplied. It is in a quiet location about 10 minutes walk from bars, restaurants and supermarket (which are in the centre of Argentiere).
We stayed for a week (3 adults and 2 children) and very much enjoyed having this chalet as our charming base. The chalet is over 3 floors though, so not for the infirm, and the stairs are quite steep so probably not advisable for really young children.
The bus stop for Chamonix is very close by and there is also a separate green nursery slope accessed across the road- great for competent kids or beginner adults.
Grand Montets had a good choice of slopes, two good ski schools and nice restaurants. We thought we might spend half of our skiing time in Chamonix (having been there before) but in the end we were happy to just ski Argentiere. Beautiful scenery, we had a great family ski holiday here.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive view Carolyn. We are really glad you had such a lovely time at Chalet Cachette.

We agree that the chalet stairs are not suitable for very small children. Chalet Cachette is a converted farm building and its traditional shape didn't allow for wider staircases. Instead we have added a bannister with uprights and a rope on the other side to make the stairs as safe as we can.

However, we think the shape and design of the building add a lot to the quirky, alpine feel of the chalet which helps make it the special place it is to stay in.

We hope to see you again in the Chamonix valley.

Kind regards

The Mont Blanc Retreats Team

Je suis resté une semaine avec ma famille au mois d'octobre. L'automne est magique à Argentière! Le chalet est idéalement placé pour aller skier ou pour les randonnées. Le chalet est bien équipé et confortable. La location est très facile avec l'équipe qui gère ce bien. Je recommande ce chalet vivement. Yannick
