Amazon Creek Corporate Retreats, Chamonix - Les Bossons

Luxury retreats & events for up to 26 with a wide range of activities

Featured in:

| Updated

Amazon Creek has been organising exceptional corporate retreats in their luxury chalets in Chamonix for over 10 years.

They have hosted a great many companies and their clients over the years and have found that corporate events fall into two main categories:

  • Retreats where the emphasis is more on entertainment, activities, and relaxation, often with clients invited
  • Events that still include activities, but there is also a focus on presentations, seminars, breakout sessions, and guest speakers

They are easily able to cater for both styles as well as any bespoke elements you would like to include. 

Full audio-visual facilities for seminars and presentations can be provided and printing/scanning services are also available to facilitate communications. All of the chalets have cinema rooms with projectors and screens which provide a great space for small breakout groups. Utilising all the spaces available allows for multiple meetings to take place in the same space while still offering privacy.

If you choose a catered service, the chalets include private chefs and hostesses who will provide a champagne reception with canapes for your group on arrival and fine, restaurant quality food throughout your stay. Each day you can look forward to fresh bread and pastries, cooked or continental style breakfasts, afternoon teas with cakes and 4-course evening meals (6 nights per week) with outstanding wines and complimentary beers and soft drinks.

Alongside catered and self-catered packages, Amazon Creek are able to provide a number of fun activities in both the summer and winter months that include, but are not limited to, heli skiing, skiing, snowboarding, climbing, yoga, mountain biking, road cycling, tennis and rafting.
