We stayed at La Forge for a week in March and overall the stay left us disappointed with the service and food, (it was far from a 'stylish cuisine' as it mentions on the companies website). There were 6 people in total staying so I...More

About the neighborhood
Home to the sports of skiing and mountaineering, Chamonix is simply addictive. The dramatic mountains of the Chamonix valley incorporating the Mont Blanc Massif offers breathtaking scenery and make it a stunning setting for any skiing, snowboarding or summer activity holiday. With five separate ski areas scattered along the Chamonix valley, each with its own unique character and the famous off piste Valley Blanche run , every level of skier and snowboarder is amply catered for!

Les Houches is a pretty and unspoilt ski village which nestles just 5km from Chamonix town.
Les Houches in the summer is perfect for mountain biking, hiking and walking.

The Chamonix valley has plenty to offer the non-skier, both rich in history and buzzing with shops, markets, bars, restaurants, exhibitions and f...
