Chalet Amazon Creek is situated in the Les Bossons area of the Chamonix Valley, nestled in woodland next to a mountain stream. It is a truly stunning chalet combining pure luxury with tranquility and the views of the Aiguille du Midi and Mont Blanc from here are just breathtaking.

The chalet Amazon Creek sleeps up to 10 guests in five beautifully designed bedrooms, all are furnished to a high standard and the neutral color scheme creates a fresh and inviting ambiance. Each bedroom has its own private en-suite bathroom. The chalet also boasts vast living areas and a cinema room, so while the kids are hiding away watching the latest movies, adults can settle down in the comfy open plan living room and enjoy a glass of wine from the superbly stocked wine cellar. After a day out and about making the most of the plethora of summer activities available in Chamonix, treat tired and aching limbs to a soak in the Jacuzzi or treat yourself to a massage in the private treatment room. You will also find a sauna and steam room in this luxury spa area of the chalet.

CURRENCY INFORMATION

The official currency is the Euro (€). Coins are available in 1 cent, 2 cent, 5 cent, 10 cent, 20 cent, 50, cent , €1 & €2 denominations. Notes are available in €5, €10, €20, €50, €100, €200, €500 denominations.

MONEY MATTERS

Travellers cheques are widely accepted for exchange or purchase in major cities, but in more rural areas, visit a bank to exchange them for Euros. Major credit cards are widely accepted here (though a limited number of merchants have American Express accounts) and ATM access is widespread. Exchange currency only at authorized outlets such as banks and hotels, and exchange only what you think you will spend in-country. Coins cannot be reconverted on departure. Save all receipts from any currency exchange transaction. You may be asked to produce them when you exit the country, and they are required if you intend to reconvert local currency.

TIPPING SUGGESTIONS

Tips in restaurants are usually added on at 10/15 % of the bill. However, it is often a subject of controversy whether this amount actually goes to the waiter or not, therefore it is your choice whether to tip more.

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.
Visas are required for certain nationalities and you are strongly advised to check your status allowing plenty of time for visa application.

WEATHER

The alpine climate is cold and visitors should wear warm, waterproof clothing at all times when outdoors during the winter. Hats and gloves are also essential to prevent frost bite. Sunglasses or ski goggles are also necessary to reduce the glare of the sun on the snow.

HEALTH

It is advisable to contact your doctor before you travel if you have any specific health concerns and imperative to take out appropriate travel and medical insurance. Winter sports involve a high degree of risk and you should be in good health and carry adequate medical insurance in case of winter sports accident, including cover for air ambulance.

ELECTRICITY

Electrical service in France is supplied at 220-240 volts/50 hertz.

DRIVING INFORMATION

Traffic from the RIGHT has right of way, except at roundabouts or if the road has a white line across it.

National speed limit is 50kmh (31mph) in towns, 90kmh (56mph) on secondary non-urban highways, 110kmh (68mph) on dual carriageways, 130kmh (80mph) on motorways (auto route).
Speeding fines: 30 – 300 Euros.
Minimum driving age is 18.
For use of the highways (auto route) it is invariably necessary to pay a toll before access. Payment can be made by coins or by credit card.
There are strict laws concerning drinking and driving. Blood alcohol levels must not exceed 0.05%. There are random breathalyser tests carried out regularly by the police.
An international driving licence is not required for European citizens. Your locally issued driving licence, as long as it is accompanied by the passport, will suffice.
