With your own driver, the Mont Blanc ski area is your oyster. The chalets are just three hundred metres from the slopes of Le Brévent and La Flégère lifts – with their more gentle runs, whilst you have easy access to some of the best off-piste skiing in the entire Alps. Chamonix offers something for everyone – from snowshoeing to cross-country skiing – as well as activities for those who don’t ski. The town centre is a short walk away, with its shops and restaurants, swimming pool and ice rink.
In the summer, the town becomes a haven for sports enthusiasts. Hiking, mountain biking, road cycling, kayaking and climbing are just the beginning of a very long list.
With dormitory-style bedrooms and bunk rooms, all three chalets offer perfect family accommodation. Ski school can be arranged locally, and there is also a babysitting service.
