Wow - we loved it here. The cable car ride was amazing and when we reached the top the views were phenomenal - you can go right to the top or stay at cable car level which is high enough! Lots of para gliders to see too.

This is one of the most beautiful places on earth. I was here to ski and the area did not disappoint. With numerous resorts within a short drive they offer terrain for all. It is pricy but hey, it's Chamonix.

This was an amazing excursion and surreal to be at the top of this famous mountain. The views were incredible. We did head straight for the recommended hot chocolate because of the altitude though. The ice was hitting the top of our gondola as we ascended which is normal but a bit scary if you aren't into gondolas. Well worth... More

Just got back from a family trip to chamonix. Haven't been for 15 years so was interested to see how it had changed. We weren't disappointed, but It is still annoying how the only way to get altitude is through a few spaced out gondolas that get busy at peak times. The exception is the brevent cable car from chamonix... More

Beautiful trees stretch up half the mountain ranges surrounding this fabulous little town. Even on a sweltering day in the middle of summer, you are reminded that winter is never far away and probably never more beautiful than here. Sure, it's full of tourist tat -classy tourist tat- but it would take a hard heart not to buy into the... More

Six of us (4 in their 20's and a 55 and 66 year old) spent a week in August, staying in a chalet. The weather was overcaste and raining for most of the time but we did have 2 warm, blue sky days. Without exception we all enjoyed every aspect of the town, even the bad weather as it created... More

Highly recommend the trip to the mountain top, although the one in the Swiss Alps was slightly more fun. The town is charming and you won't be able to choose between the gelato flavors!

Beautiful place and loads to do in the summer. We enjoyed a range of outdoor activities, white water rafting, bicycling, walking, running, trekking and riding cable cars to stunning scenery. However it is very expensive to eat out. Excursions are pricey too. The town is quite large and set in a deep valley, and often felt dwarfed by surrounding huge... More

Although we visited in summer it was a lovely place to visit. Fresh air and beautiful views. The whole place was clean and nothing to fault. It would be amazing to visit in winter one day making the treck from the other side of the world worth it.

We have returned here year after year and couldn't think of any other place we want to visit during our holidays. Great place for couples and families with older children (10 plus). Great place for activities, relaxation and chilling out. Highly recommend. The views are breath taking, you will not be disappointed.
