With the Pyrenees mountains lining the Spanish border and the majestic Alps along the Italian and Swiss borders, France can rightly lay claim to offering some of the world’s best skiing opportunities. And it doesn’t get much better than Chamonix-Megève, set in the heart of the French Alps. Built in 1928, Chalet du Mont d’Arbois is an opulently stylish resort featuring grand public rooms full of fireplaces, beamed ceilings and antiques, complemented by spacious, sunny and sumptuous guest rooms.
Chalet du Mont d’Arbois’ high season winter rates range from 200 euros for a single to up to 505 euros for duplexes which sleep five people. The ski season begins around mid-December and natural spring snow allows for great skiing to early May.
The area is a year-round sightseeing destination thanks to its environment and attractions such as the Aiguille du Midi cable car and the red cog-wheel train of Montenvers which climbs to the famous Mer de Glace. Chamonix-Megève is a cradle of mountaineering history, rich in tradition and colour.
