  • Exactly what I was looking for: a comfortable and relaxing place, made so by both the scenery/location, the personal attention/support provided to your stay and vacation intentions, and the comfort of the chalet itself. The feel is simply: it's your home too.

  • Excellent accommodation with a wonderful ambiance. It was like home from home. Nothing was to much trouble, if you required anything you only needed to ask and they will try to accommodate your request. We would have loved to have stayed longer.

  • David and Asa were perfect hosts, very friendly, helpful and good company. David suggested some great hikes in the region and we even managed to get out one afternoon to take Poppy (the dog) for a hike in the hills. They went out of their way to ensure we had an excellent stay.

  • We spend some wonderful days in Chamonix. Staying at the Chalet les Pelerins was one of the reasons that our vacation was great. The place is comfortable, clean, and adorable. The staff, Lynsay in particular, was so helpful in every way.

  • The chalet is clean, comfortable and well maintained with a roaring log fire in the lounge/dining room. Tasty, home cooked meals are served with tea and cake available in the late afternoon. Even the most voracious skier is left sated.

Chamonix

Chamonix is a beautiful Alpine town set against some of the most breathtaking mountain scenery to be found anywhere in the world. The jagged peaks of the Mont Blanc Massif which surround the valley have become an adventure sports playground earning Chamonix the nickname of European Capital of Extreme Sports. While Chamonix undoubtedly deserves its reputation there is also lots more to see and do at a slightly more relaxed pace!

Chamonix is a fully functioning town year round with a normal population of around 10,000 which can swell to 10 times that amount during peak season. It has a very cosmopolitan feel with a large number of British and Scandinavian residents as well as visitors from all over the world. Chamonix attracts mountain enthusiasts from all walks of life, it is not uncommon for the person serving your coffee to be a qualified scientist and the person sat next to you is the freeride world champion.  

There are a number of beautiful buildings dotted throughout the town and the alpine museum and guides office are great places for exploring Chamonix’s rich history. Chamonix has a full range of amenities including a number of bars, restaurants, cafes, a great selection of shops, a cinema, ice rink, swimming pool, climbing wall, sports centre and a full range of medical services.
