Traditional village


Argentiere, with its traditional village atmosphere, is in a lovely setting towards the head of the Chamonix valley. The resort is dominated by the Aiguille Verte and is at the foot of the Glacier d’Argentière.


For non-skiers the area is better than most resorts. There is a regular bus between Argentière and Chamonix town where there is a sports complex and fitness centre, an ice-rink, an alpine museum, a cinema showing English speaking films, an exhibition centre, a library, a casino, a bowling alley, Museum of Crystals and mountaineering center, the pedestrian center with shops, restaurants and bars, Alpine coaster toboggan run, guided tours with local heritage guides, handcraft, exhibitions and various other activities.  The tops of the cable cars (open to pedestrians) are a great place to see some of the best views of Europe’s highest mountains.
