This single-stage 166km ultramarathon circles the Mont Blanc crossing three countries and gaining a total evaluation of 9,500m.

As the last major sporting event in Chamonix before the ski season the Ultra-trail has a special place in the Chamonix events calendar and is really worth attending if you are staying in one of our luxury chalets this week. The race starts this Friday, 29 August at 5.30pm in the Centre of Chamonix with the winner expected to return approximately 20 hours later.

Luxury Summer Chalet Chamonix

04/04/2014

summer chamWith its stunning scenery and amazing variety of activities the Chamonix Valley is one of the most amazing places in the Alps to spend your summer holiday. Unlike many alpine resorts Chamonix buzzes in the summer with people coming from all over the world to soak up all that this beautiful mountain valley has to offer. If you’re feeling sporty then summer activities include hiking, mountain biking, paragliding, white water rafting and climbing to mention just a few. Chalet le Marti provides a perfect base to enjoy these activities due to its 8 spacious bedrooms and location at the heart of old Argentiere with lovely cafés and bars just a short stroll away for that après-activity drink. 

For those of you who prefer a more relaxed luxurious holiday to recover from the stresses and strains of modern day life then this is also possible by relaxing in the stunning surroundings of your own private chalet, or perhaps having a swim in the gorgeous swimming pool of Chalet des Drus followed by a private massage whilst looking up at the snow covered peaks of the Mont Blanc mountain range. There is also some fabulous shopping in Chamonix including high end designer boutiques.

Our beautiful old farmhouse, La Ferme du Bois, is a firm favourite amongst both families and friends during the summer months due to its large living space and beautiful terrace complete with a hot tub and views over the lawn to watch the children play; this really is your own little slice of Alpine heaven.

If any of the above sounds interesting to you then make sure you contact our team of experts now to start planning your perfect summer holiday in the glorious Chamonix Valley.

 

Sunshine and snow

21/03/2014

sunshine and snowThe Chamonix Valley has been bathed in glorious sunshine for the last couple of days bringing out a number of people in shorts and flipflops in the town centre. This is however Chamonix and the famous microclimate is set to work once again with another dumping of snow predicted on Saturday and carrying on over the weekend, so should bring some great powder for the days ahead if you are staying in one of our chalets.
