  • Staff / owners, breakfast, Chamonix were great. I went with my son (16) and we walked into town each night to eat out. It was brilliant for bed and breakfast and has bus stops right outside for access to all ski areas.

  • The location was perfect. Friendly staff and delicious breakfast. The chalet is small and the rooms compact.

  • We spend some wonderful days in Chamonix. Staying at the Chalet les Pelerins was one of the reasons that our vacation was great. The place is comfortable, clean, and adorable. The staff, Lynsay in particular, was so helpful in every way.

  • We had two wonderful days in this chalet. The hostes really made us feel welcome and taken care of. The breakfast she prepared was fresh and tasty. We enjoyed talking to her and the other guests and it felt like visiting a friend rather than just booking a room.

Chamonix

Chamonix is a beautiful Alpine town set against some of the most breathtaking mountain scenery to be found anywhere in the world. The jagged peaks of the Mont Blanc Massif which surround the valley have become an adventure sports playground earning Chamonix the nickname of European Capital of Extreme Sports. While Chamonix undoubtedly deserves its reputation there is also lots more to see and do at a slightly more relaxed pace!

Chamonix is a fully functioning town year round with a normal population of around 10,000 which can swell to 10 times that amount during peak season. It has a very cosmopolitan feel with a large number of British and Scandinavian residents as well as visitors from all over the world. Chamonix attracts mountain enthusiasts from all walks of life, it is not uncommon for the person serving your coffee to be a qualified scientist and the person sat next to you is the freeride world champion.  

There are a number of beautiful buildings dotted throughout the town and the alpine museum and guides office are great places for exploring Chamonix’s rich history. Chamonix has a full range of amenities including a number of bars, restaurants, cafes, a great selection of shops, a cinema, ice rink, swimming pool, climbing wall, sports centre and a full range of medical services.
