The History of Chamonix
Once home to a rural population of farmers and small monastery, the valley of Chamonix was brought to the attention of the world by two English explorers, Windham and Pococke. Their literary journals, documenting amazing sights such as the Mer de Glace (Sea of Ice) drew others to this beautiful place, and when Madame Coutterand opened the first guest house in 1770 its reputation as a holiday destination was established, with luxury hotels soon following in the early 19th century. Two local men, Paccard and Balmat, made the first ascent of Mont Blanc in 1786, and Chamonix is now the mountaineering capital of Europe.
What to See and Do In Chamonix
There is something for everyone in picturesque Chamonix, whether you are looking for the opportunity to ski some of the most extraordinary descents in Europe - such as The Vallee Blanche at 2700 vertical metres - or the chance to relax in magnificent surroundings. Our luxury chalet in Chamonix let you enjoy every aspect of the area, from the lively streets lined with a colourful mix of restaurants, shops, bars and cafés to the Grotte de la Mer de Glace, an ice cave whose frozen tunnels and ice sculptures change colour like mood rings.
If the paragliding, skiing and mountaineering leave you in need of some rest, The Heliopic Spa features a large pool complete with fireplace and swing chairs where you can perch or doze off after a refreshing swim. There is also a tepidarium, banya, ice cave, cold water wells and a Turkish steam bath as well as a wide selection of treatments. You can also simply enjoy the beautiful surroundings from the chalet, relaxing with a hot drink, pleasantly aching bones and tales of your adventures.
