Accommodation in Chamonix

Accommodation in Chamonix

Accommodation in Chamonix is available in a great variety of formats. There is everything from ski chalet and hotels to apartments, bed and breakfasts and dorms. The well-heeled traveller can choose between four-star hotels, luxury apartments and posh chalets. Chalet rentals are available in self-catering format or all-inclusive with catering as well as other needs taken care of.

For many skiers, the most convenient accommodation is located in Chamonix itself. There is no lack of lodging in the centre of the town but things can get busy during the season, so don’t leave your bookings too late or you could end up having to stay somewhere that is less practical.

Enjoying Chamonix to the maximum can be a tiring experience. By the time you’ve pounded the slopes all afternoon and enjoyed the busy après-ski nightlife, you could find it hard to generate the energy needed to prepare meals and do laundry. As a result, hiring a chalet with someone to take care of these things is popular.

A ski chalet will generally sleep between six and 12 people. Luxury chalet rental generally runs in the £1,000 to £5,000 range per week. For the serious luxury, expect to pay about 50 per cent more. For luxury apartments located in central Chamonix, the rates can be much higher still.
