Call 01242 547 705 to speak to a specialist Enquire


The Chamonix valley is simply stunning; breath-taking scenery of dramatic mountains surrounding the pretty resort centre – reminding us more of a French Renaissance village. Thus you would be forgiven in forgetting that you were actually in a ski resort when staying here! But many visitors come to view the incredible and beautiful Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest mountain. This ensures that Chamonix is consistently voted one of the top five must “see & ski” destinations in the world. And it’s certainly a hit both in the summer and the winter months. Chamonix, therefore, is one of Europe’s most popular year round destinations; great for skiers & non-skiers, friends and families, business and pleasure. Whatever your reason, a visit to Chamonix is both rewarding and easy – it’s within an hour transfer from Geneva airport. Access to some of the most challenging terrain as well as a plethora of gentle cruising valleys has never been simpler or as stress-free!

TIPPING SUGGESTIONS
In restaurants a service charge is built into menu prices. However, it's customary to round up amounts when paying the waiter or waitress if you're happy with the service. This means that you might hand the server EUR 50 for a EUR 47 meal. If you're paying by credit card, hand the server a cash tip of up to 5%. For Taxis as in restaurants, round up or add 5% when you're happy with the service. Tips to your chalet staff are entirely at your discretion.

ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE FORMALITIES
Travel documents are your responsibility. In general you should have: a signed, valid passport that will remain valid for at least 6 months beyond the completion of your trip. Your passport must have enough blank pages (excluding amendment pages) available for entry and exit stamps issued when entering and exiting immigration points.
