Chamonix or elsewhere

Hi all,

We plan on visiting Chamonix for 2 nights in mid August.

Is there a better choice to stay at in the nearby area if we generally like to stay in smaller villages/towns to immerse in local foods and culture and scenery. Our main aim is to get a taste of the French Alps with the limited time we have.

We will have a car, travelling from Provence for the few days.

Any suggestions will be very much appreciated.

Argentiere is 6km from Chamonix , quieter, arguably a bit cheaper and (subjectively) prettier
