What's nearby?

About the surrounding area

Situated at the top of the Chamonix Valley, Argentiere is nestled at the foot of the Les Grands Montets on one side and the Aiguilles Rouges nature reserve on the other. Dramatic in winter and picturesque in summer, the town is a great base for mountain enthusiasts. It doesn't have the nightlife or shopping of Chamonix but you won't miss it once you're up amongst the high peaks

Towns nearby

Argentiere is a traditional French village, full of pretty chalets and charming old stone buildings. It is pretty quiet out of season but comes to life in the busy winter and summer months, when the lure of the mountains attracts plenty of outdoor types who pile into the bars of an evening. There is a good selection of sports/mountaineering shops and a couple of little grocery stores but you may want to head to nearby Chamonix for any other kind of shopping, there are regular trains and buses that link the two towns.

Restaurants nearby

Argentiere has a good choice of restaurants within a very small area, just take a stroll up the main road and see where takes your fancy. The Office does good bar food of the burgers and nachos variety - perfect with a jug of beer after a day on the hill. Opposite is Les Cheserys, which serves more sophisticated fare using seasonal local produce. Further along the street is a row of shops and restaurants where you'll find a number of pizza, crepe and snack options.

Sights nearby

Taking a trip up Les Grands Montets cable car is a memorable experience in both summer and winter. The views of the valley are spectacular and it's not unusual to see wildlife such as marmots and chamois up here. You can access the Petit Balcon Nord from just behind the village, a hiking trail that runs from Chamonix all the way to Vallorcine.

Things to Do nearby

Argentiere is the chosen home of many guides and mountaineers, due to its incredible terrain. The glacier provides off-piste ski touring all year round and the hiking and climbing routes are endless. In the winter the town provides instant access to the massive Les Grands Montets ski area, whereas in the summer you can enjoy miles of hiking and biking trails. Argentiere is connected to the rest of the Chamonix valley by bus and train, making all local activities easily accessible.

Golf-clubs nearby

The nearest golf course to Argentiere is the Golf Club de Chamonix, an 18 hole course in Chamonix Les Praz, near to the Flegere lift station.

Lifts/Pistes nearby

Les Grands Montets lift station can be accessed on foot from Argentiere train station or by the bus that runs daily up and down the Chamonix Valley. The large cable car whisks you up to the Lognan plateau at 1972m, from where you can take a further cable car up to the glacier at 3300m (booking recommended as queues can be long). A new gondola was installed at the beginning of the 2014/15 winter season, making wait times much shorter.

Nightlife nearby

For a small town, Argentiere has a surprising number of bars - the Savoy opposite the train station has always been the place to go for good old foot stomping apres-ski but it has had a tendency to change owners a lot recently, so we can't guarantee what this season will bring. Further up the same road you'll find old favourites such as The Office and Slalom, where there are regular live bands and parties. The restaurant at the foot of the Grands Montets lift station has a large terrace at the back where they often have musicians playing and don't forget to call in at La Yaute beside the roundabout for a beer on the sunny terrace.

Visitor comments

  • "Our group of 22 rented the Granit and Cristal chalets for a week. The chalets are comfortable, nicely furnished and have great amenities. The hot tub, pool and steam room were popular with our group. We also hired catering for the week and were very pleased! The chalet and staff are fabulous. I would stay here again in a minute. Fantastic views of Mont Blanc, glaciers and the surrounding peaks." -  Trip Advisor
  • "We spent this last week at these beautiful chalets- we were roughly 20 people in two chalets (Granit and Cristal). It was excellent! The outside space really made it, and the kids and adults always had something to do- hang by the pool/ hot tub/ BBQ/ yoga/ as well as all the beauty that the area has to offer. We had all 20 of us around a single dinner table most nights which was unbelievable, and we even had a masseur come to visit for all the sore bike riders and hikers in our group. I've also skied in this area and can imagine would be excellent in winter also. Marc, our host was lovely and could not have been more accommodating." -  Trip Advisor
