Les Bossons

A growing village situated under its own glacier

Les Bossons is a sleepy little village just a 5 minute drive from the centre Chamonix on the road to Les Houches. It is fairly spread out and consists mainly of chalet style properties and is popular with families due to its local school.

The village activities aren’t just limited to walking. Les Bossons boasts its own Olympic Ski jump where a number of competitions take place throughout the winter including the French Championship. During the summer, it is also the end of the 7km grade 2 rafting route which takes you right through the centre of Chamonix.
