Cham, as the locals call the valley at the foot of Mont-Blanc, is often thought of first and foremost as the Mecca for extreme mountain sports enthusiasts. However, for us the resort is above all a world-class destination for relaxing and socialising with family and friends. Rumours say the talk of the town this winter is the new state-of-the-art gondola connecting Le Praz and Flégère. In close competition with the classic but oh so cool ”James Bond” or ”Italian Job evenings”- snowmobiling up to a mountain restaurant in France or in Italy; returning on luges.
Nevertheless, for less action, more ambiance we suggest you bring your bling with you to the slopes for some well deserved heavy and heavenly indulgence in the delights of the Savoyard cuisine (read cheese, potato, dried meats and génépy). Nothing taste better than the flavour of altitude they say!
The Shack is perhaps the most exciting thing happening on the Chamonix culture scene right now. A happy marriage between passion and business with imaginative food in a relaxed open seating area. The dishes are tapas-style Asian flavors and their side of tomatoes is to die for. All at low cost, high vibes! High five!
In the middle of the forest, at the foot of Agentière's glacier you’ll find this little wooden chalet. A hidden gem with a mesmerising green and yellow facade. For a long time the cottage was only open during the summer months making it a perfect stop for hikers climbing the nearby glacier. Today it’s a year-round hot spot for cheese lovers. Pic a seat around the wooden stove and enjoy one of the best fondues the Alps has to offer. Say cheeeeese!
An Aperol Spritz is always a good idea on the terrace of this awarded chalet restaurant. As well as replacing your helmet and goggles with glittery earcuffs and hairclips for that ultimate selfie-with-the alps-in-the-background late lunch break. You can expect generous portions of woodfired grilled meats and fish as well as a contemporary vegan menu while contemplating the Mont-Blanc massif.
