accomodation in chamonix for 7-8 Jun '11

by manish117

Hi friends!!

we are a couple looking for a 2 night stay in or around chamonix in Jun 11. our priority is excellent views and our budget is < EURO 100/night.

would highly appreciate if someone could share their experiences of their stay, though we would prefer a non-hotel stay but am aware that you usually dont get a chalet for such a short duration. and if possible some decent connectivity to a station/bus stop would be a add-on.

thanks in advance for your help.

cheers!!

We loved Chamonix - LOADS to do there and around. Wonderful views everywhere.
We stayed at Hotel Vallee Blanche which was great but I would hate to give you a price as it was a couple of years ago

parking in Chamonix (if you have a car whilst you are there) can be a pain. There are a couple of public car parks that everybody is trying to get a space in. We were slightly jealous of the hotels that had underground parking as Hotel Vallee Blanche did not!

have fun!

Travel Tips for Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

Appreciating nature

by Manara

The Alps have an exceptional geology, flora and fauna, which can be appreciated in the region of the Mont Blanc.
In order to protect this natural environment the Reserve Naturelle del Aiguilles Rouges, covering over 300 hectares, was created in 1974. More natural reserves have been added, so this first one is now surrounded by the natural reserves of Passy, Carlaveyron and Vallon de Bérard.
For those who want to learn about the local flora and fauna there are discovery routes, guided by volunteers. For information you can contact asso.ar@free.fr.

Plan de L'Aiguille

by sandysmith

For our summer visit the top section of the cable-car trip was closed due to strong winds, so we had to make do with just the first stage - Plan de L'Aiguille. Even so the views are still spectular.

Ski du Fond

by sandysmith

Chamonix not only caters for downhill-skiers in the winter but also 'Ski du Fond' or cross-country ski-ing. For those fit enough to try it here is a plan of the many routes on offer. It make be more physically tiring than downhill ski-ing but it does mean you are not lettting all that glorious mountain scenery rush past you. Equipment for hire right near the entrance - even help novices like us select the right length of ski!

Lunch at the Col de Balme in Summer

by firechick

This is actually a popular hiking path with locals but not as many 'day tourists' seem to realize it exists.

You start at the Le Tour parking lot (the last village at the head of the Chamonix valley) which is a ski station in winter. To get to it, drive towards Argentiere (follow signs at all the roundabouts) and pass Argentiere and turn off to the right for Le Tour. Pass through Montroc-Le Planet. The road ends at the parking lot in Le Tour.

In summer (starting in mid June) the lifts start to run again. You can either walk (a couple of hours of hiking in a gentle green cow pasture with streams and rolling dips and hillocks) up to the top or can take the ski lift (past the mid station to the top) up this more gentle hill. The top is called the Col de Balme at 2200m of altitude.

This is the border with Switzerland and there is a small restaurant up here run by a very old couple. They serve simple lunches and accept Euros or Swiss Francs. You can also bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the beautiful views of the whole Chamonix Valley and Switzerland from here. Also several Swiss hiking trails start here and traverse the area and have gorgeous views as well. For example, you can hike to Trient (Switzerland) and the Col de la Forclaz (Switzerland) quite easily from here.

Note that it can get windy on the top of the Col so unless it is a very hot day, a light jacket might be advised.

To get down you can hike, ride the lift or mountain bike. There is an easy trail for mountain bikes that leads to the bottom, and which is also used as a service road, so is wide and easier to negotiate than some of the steeper mountain bike trails in Chamonix. The summer lifts will let you take your bikes to the top with no problems.

It's true - on a clear day you can see forever

by firechick

Do this ONLY on a clear day! Going to the top of the Aiguille du Midi is not cheap, but it is the closest many people will ever be able to come to a real 'mountain top' experience.

You will be up at altitude (3842m) quickly, and be able to feel the difference as you start huffing and puffing going up and down the stairs at the top of the tower.

Why a must see? The views are absolutely stunning. You can see Switzerland and Italy from here, the Mont Blanc Massif, with various Aiguilles and even on occaision you can see the Matterhorn in the far distance.
A few tips to make the most of this pricey gondola ride -

1. Go EARLY in the morning. Often in the afternoon it can get cloudy, spoiling views into Switzerland and Italy. Tour groups start to queue around 9:30-10am.

2. Bring a hat and gloves and coat, even if it is broiling hot in Chamonix. At the top it will be windy and close to or below freezing.

3. Bring water and a snack with you. That way you will avoid paying silly prices for food in the cafes on top.

4. If you go 'off season' the extra charge to go to the tippy top 'needle' is often waived. Otherwise if they are trying to take more money from you for that extra elevator ride, just skip it. It's just one more viewing platform a little bit higher than the others, and you will queue a long time in high season.
