Argentière is one of the most exciting and challenging ski areas in the Alps, with the old village in a delightful setting towards the head of the Chamonix valley towards the village of Le Tour.

Located beneath Les Grands Montets and surrounded by the most magnificent peaks and glaciers in the Alps, the picturesque mountain feel of the village is self-evident – it’s long been at the forefront of Alpine sports, welcoming tourists for 200 years and skiers since the early years of the century.

Built beside the Torrent (River) de l’Arve, the village of Argentière retains a large number of traditional wooden houses, as well as ancient farmhouses where the farmers still subsist on mountain agriculture. Argentière provides an interesting base to explore the surrounding ski areas of the Chamonix valley. There is a newer side of Argentière too with all the modern amenities and services, a variety of cosy bars and restaurants and a disco.

A shuttle bus runs from Argentière into the town of Chamonix every 15 minutes.
