Chalet Hôtel Hermitage, in Chamonix, at the foot of Mont Blanc

Chamonix, the iconic Alpine resort, is a popular year-round destination.

In winter, visitors come for the skiing and boardsports, and to enjoy the snow-capped Mont Blanc.

In summer, there is mountain hiking, biking, a chance to discover the local flora and fauna and the high altitude lakes.

And throughout the year, there are traditional villages to explore, crafts to discover and locals to meet, always happy to share the delights of their region with visitors.
