Accommodation for party of 6

by danijels

Hi

Does anyone have any tips for where we could find accommodation for 6 guys in form of a three bedroom apartment or a cabin of some kind for late Jan 2010?

Location should be so the ski lifts are fairly accessible and the price should be under €2000 for the week.

Thanks

We've rented often from Gites de France. You might look through their web site for chalets and apartments. Prices vary but you can usually find something in nearly any price range. It's very reliable.

Here's their web site in English.

Thanks a lot for your answer. The only problem is that a search on that site gave 5 results and the nearest one was 6km from Chamonix.

That was a good tip! Keep them coming :)

Here's another web site we've used with great success. You are usually connected directly with the homeowners to book. We prefer that because you eliminate the middleman, i.e. it's usually cheaper. 8^)

I concur with the Holiday Rentals site for apartments. There is also chaletfinders.co.uk for various kinds of holiday rentals, focusing on chalets but a variety of stuff is listed.

It's not a chalet, nor an apartment, but for almost the same price you can stay at hotel Esprit Montagne, including breakfast and dinner. The hotel is 200 meters away from one of the telecabines of Les Portes du Soleil (www.portesdusoleil.com), which has 650 km of piste.

Travel Tips for Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

Come to see the Mountains - Stay awhile!

by firechick

Come to Chamonix to see and *experience* the mountains. If you don't like the mountains or outdoors, there really isn't much point in coming here, to be honest! I recommend planning a trip of at least a week (more if you are arriving from the US). if you are a mountain person. The weather here is unpredictable, and you really don't want to waste money on cable cars to see views of clouds! Giving yourself a week should give you at least one sunny day with gorgeous views to take photos of in most seasons. Avoid late Fall and late Spring when rain is more likely. The first time I saw Chamonix I was in love with the area, and instantly wondered about what it would take to live there. Be prepared - this may happen to you as well, especially if you are already a rock climber, skier, snow boarder or mountaineer. Use available online resources and plan some activities ahead of time, and come up with 'alternate plans' in case of bad weather. Hiking is possible even in the rain, for example, with the right equipment - but climbing Mt Blanc in the wrong conditions could be disasterous. There are many sites that have contact information for mountain guide services, and most bookstores in town (or also try Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.fr) will have various books in English or French on local hikes, rock climbs, mountain bike trails etc.. If you spend a month or more here you will get a definitely better feel for the area. But even one action-packed well-planned week (with the blessing of good weather) can give you mountain adventure experiences you will cherish for the rest of your life.

Tandem Flight

by ettenaj

Special because I was terrified of heights and to run off the side of a mountain was just unthinkable, but I did it. Wow what an experience, I was really scared but 5 mins into the flight I felt a calm come over me as we floated over the town, my pilot was brilliant....I kissed her when we landed as I was so pleased to have survived it. Trainers is all you need, they provided gloves helmet and obviosley the chute!

Le Chatelard

by smirnofforiginal

Cross the border between France & Switzerland to Le Chatelard - it's just down the road.

Board the Chatelard funicular - the steepest slope funicular in the world with 87% difference in altitude in 700meters, in 12 minutes - in places it's almost vertical!

At the top you're at Chateau d'Eau (but don't expect an impressive fortress!) where you get to see a short film (and for those of you in interested in it or with children... it really is short). Then it's time to board Le Petit Train Panoramique for some absolutely spectacular views and scenery, including views across to Mont Blanc and the Bouqui Canyons, en route to the base of Emosson Dam which is 1931m above sea level. NB The Petit Train is just that - each carriage manages (just) to seat 2 people and if you do not have a head for heights -do not sit on the cliff side. Trust me, you are a very long way up and in many places it is very sheer drop down, not helped when the mist swirls in!

To get to Lake (Dam) Emosson, once you get off The Petit Train you must jump on a the mini-funic and as everything else on this trip - if you fear heights...DON'T LOOK DOWN! The mini-funic goes 140m vertical height in 2 minutes.. you feel as though you are disappearing in to the heavens and wonder how much higher you can go!

Emosson holds a staggering 225million cube meters and, as I mentioned, this is at 1931m above sea level - quite impressive! It's a very lovely sight but, on the day we were there we got to view it for 3 minutes and in that short space of time it went from clear visiblity to very very thick mountain mist.

There is a dinosaur trail which we started on and I should imagine in good weather it would be wonderful. However, the mist was like pea-soup and we couldn't see a thing. Even though we were on a vague track we started to get a bit concerned about finding our way back so we quit whilst we were ahead.

Alpine Bagels

by firechick about Grand Central

Grand Central has reopened at a new location as of last winter season, in a bigger space. The menu is extended and there is finally a large indoor seating area. Bagels are available (flown from New York) as always, as well as healthy juices, and now salads and other healthy meal options are available. Nothing fried. Good coffee and a wide selection of teas, and in the evening the bar is open. Run by two Swedish sisters Lotte and Lisa, and now staffed by an array of gorgeous Swedish women it is a great place to go for people watching as well! Outdoor patio is open for the summer. They are now in a great location near the main squares downtown, right next to the war memorial square where the Saturday market is held. Bagels - many options to choose from from traditional lox and cream chees (well St Moret, but it tastes the same) to the 'Elvis' with banana and peanut butter. This is the only place I know of in this whole region to get a bagel (Geneva is next nearest place) so come here if you need a nosh. Also love the chai tea latte.

Plan de l'Aiguille

by sandysmith

Take time to admire the scenery here before you take change cable-cars to go to the summit. There are great views of the Bosson glaciers here snaking their way down the mountain.
If you are planning to go right to the top make sure you are wearing something warmer than the shorts I was wearing. Even in summer it can be "brass monkey " weather up top.
