Les Houches

At the entrance of the Chamonix valley and only 6km from its famous town, the pretty village of Les Houches is right under the impressive Mont Blanc massif.

It’s a typical mountain village with a pretty church encircled by old wooden Savoyard farmhouses.  Nestled in the heart of the Mont Blanc, Les Houches village and resort offer an outstanding panoramic view of the Aiguilles (needle-like peaks) of Chamonix. This family ski resort is very much in the traditional image of mountain ski holidays. There are a number of pleasant bars and good restaurants in Les Houches for quiet evenings out, and buses run in and out of Chamonix all evening.

Les Houches’ friendly, relaxed atmosphere provides a great base for families. Les Houches is also ideal for those wishing to explore the rest of the legendary valley.
