Located right next to the railway station, the hotel is well located, and within walking distances to nursery ski slopes for lessons. Very accessible to the rest of the Chamonix ski slopes by bus.

Drove to Argentieres which is further down the valley from Chamonix, and caught the cable car lift up the mountain (1900 m) – our starting place for our hike called 'Point De Vue’ – up to the edge of the Argentiers glacier. Descriptions of the walk compared it to the Mer de Glace glacier we went to on Monday ...

But the nature blue hue at the beginning (from the natural light filtering through from the outside) is by far the most beautiful and spectacular. Back at the top, had a bit of a look around and took some photos. There is a restaurant with a lovely ...
