Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

The Chamonix region is vast and the contours of the Mont-Blanc so inspiring that they should be explored with the regard that such a spectacular region merits. One generally associates the Mont-Blanc country with limitlessness for the vastness of its region and of the itineraries that traverse it. And yet these landscapes speak to something deep within us all, so that we find a sense of belonging here, regardless of where we come from.

Mont-Blanc’s eternal charms 

Strolling through Chamonix in September is soothing. Settling down in a charming restaurant to enjoy a local wine forms part of the holiday ritual. And why not have lunch in a little mountain auberge where the mountains sunshine will warm our hearts and give colour to our cheeks !
