Located at Mont Blanc bottom, Chamonix is a mountain city with an unusual spirit!
Famous around the world, surrounding sites offer amazing landscapes.
Aiguille du Midi, Ice sea, Mont Blanc tramway, white valley, Grands Montets, Brevent... those mythics places will be great for each kind of holliday maker.
English speaking and posh, city center (1035 meters) is mainly made with small pedestrian roads. It is the place where you will find a lot of shops and restaurants . Very charming, the centre is pleasant to discover by walking and quite fast.

About 15 hamlets hold around the city.

If to move is very simple there, with a charged bus service serving the various districts and resort sites. There is also a free shuttle covering the southern part of the river (the Mulet). The city center is pedestrian, so it is necessary to go around the city by car by the Allée Recteur Payot and the Route Blanche. You have the choice to park your car :
- Parking lots (free, paying, flatware or outsides)
- The blue parking places are regulated
- The white parking places are free
A train station is also in city center, 5 minutes from the city-center by foot.
