Skiing in Argentiere, Chamonix, Mont Blanc: Although Argentiere boasts the most challenging area in the Alps the surrounding area is also good for beginners and intermediates alike and the ESF French ski school is one of the best in Europe.

The village is very child friendly and children are welcome at restaurants and there is a great crèche facility close to the ski slopes called the Panda Club.

Paragliding off the top of Brevent with an experienced instructor, white water rafting, canoeing, mountain biking, glacier walking, ice climbing, rock climbing with an indoor climbing wall at Les Houches are all possible.

Getting to Argentiere: There are many airport transfer services running between Argentiere/Chamonix and Geneva Airport at very competitive rates.

Why Chris Barr chose Chamonix - Mont Blanc

This is our home in the mountains, occupying the ground floor of a substantial house. We think that you will find it far more comfortable than the standard holiday let. It has recently been furnished and equipped to a high level. As well as a well equipped kitchen and living room, we have provided a 6 large ski boot dryer - no need for cold / wet ski boots! The apartment is very accessible from Geneva, is right in the centre of a great village and a fantastic location for both winter and summer holidays.

Perfect for our entire family

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time! The condo was perfect, so spacious and beautiful. We walked from the condo to ski at Argentiere which ended up being our favorite mountain in the Chamonix area because it's the most difficult and we are a pretty hard-core ski family. We also walked each morning around the corner from the condo, to the bakery for fresh baked goods. The village has some great restaurants and we also drove each night about 7 minutes by car to Chamonix and did serious ice skating, Luge, shopping and dining. Last, the condo is only 20 minutes to Coumayer ski resort in Italy which was amazing!! Thank you for letting us stay there!!

A family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 spent Christmas in this wonderful apartment. It was a the perfect spot. All the facilities one needed. Great support from the owner and local property manager which made everything stress free. And wonderful location next to free car park, bus stop and train station not to mention the line up of bars, restaurants and shops all on hand. Can't rave enough about this place. Fantastic.

The best apartment in the Alps!

  • 5 of 5

We spent just under a week at this beautiful, perfectly located apartment in Argentiere. Clean, warm, exceptional interiors, with all the kitchen amenities you could possibly need, this truly was a home away from home.

With only an hour's drive from Geneva, Argentiere is possibly one of the most easily-reached ski resorts I have ever visited. Although on this occasion we were not there to ski, we certainly were not limited for things to do. There are copious walking and hiking routes, and many of the bike hire shops were still open for business, as well as various spas in Chamonix - perfect for a cloudy day.

I could not recommend this apartment highly enough, and cannot wait to go back!

A great stay...

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully presented apartment in the centre of Argentiere. The village itself is very attractive -- we used the cable cars to visit the glacier, did some white water rafting and had endless turns on the luge in Chamonix. A great choice for an active summer break - highly recommended.

Cosy, comfortable, homely apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment for a week and honestly cannot fault it. It's such a lovely, homely place to come back to after a long day on the slopes. The apartment is so beautifully decorated, the beds are super comfortable, its really well equipped, and is in a great location, close to all local restaurants, shops and ski areas, as well as Chamonix, which is only a short drive away - I will definitely be coming back!

Argentiere is one of the most challenging off piste ski resorts in Europe. In addition to the off piste, it offers many prepared runs and access to numerous other resorts. It forms part of a large ski arena which encompasses La Tour, Flegere, Brevent in Chamonix and Les Houches, providing skiing for all levels. These resorts are accessible via car or free ski bus and are within 15 minutes of Argentiere. Argentiere has a typical mountain village atmosphere, with great restaurants and bars. Chamonix is just 7km away and has a huge array of restaurants, bars, a cinema, sports centre, tennis and ice skating facilities, and shops galore. Geneva airport is approximately an hour's drive away and the Italian resort of Courmayeur is a 20 minute drive through the Mont Blanc tunnel. Argentiere is immensely picturesque during the summer and is popular with hikers and cyclists.

Other Activities: Canoeing, ice climbing, mountain biking, walking trails, golf, shopping, touring.
