Les Praz

A beautiful village with access to the ski lifts & golf course

Featured in:


Les Praz

Les Praz is a small picturesque village on the out-skirts of Chamonix. The village is surrounded by forests and streams making it an idyllic mountain hideaway and a popular place to live. You will find many chalet style properties in this area. It is also home to a number of good bars and restaurants.

The church is the hallmark of Les Praz. It is an incredibly popular place for couples from all over the world to have their wedding photos taken outside, although you can sadly no longer get married here. With its classic interior, including stained glass windows and glorious mountain setting it is hard not to appreciate.
