Welcome to Chamonix
Chamonix is a vibrant town known as both a world-class ski resort and a mountaineering destination. Situated in the Haute-Savoie region of France, it is bordered by Switzerland and Italy and dominated by the incredible Aiguilles de Chamonix mountain chain peaking at the top of Mont Blanc (4810m).
With these vast, jagged mountains towering over the town, the scenery here is arguably the most spectacular in the French Alps. The snow-capped peaks soar into the bright blue sky, ancient glaciers sweep down towards the valley floor and waterfalls cascade through pine-covered hillsides.
The natural beauty of this valley is the main draw for those who love the outdoors whether skiers, mountaineers, hikers or sightseers. There is a real international feel here, not just from tourists but from individuals and families who have decided to settle here from all over the world. Come and find out why!
