Club Med Chamonix Mont-Blanc Reviews

(7 Reviews)
Are you fit and strong?....... - 21/17/2012
Overall

If you're unfit and lazy don't go here. Many people go on about having to get a bus, it really doesn't matter, the buses are so regular and it's a good time to strategise your day, everyone's in the same boat you just have to get on with it. The mountains in Chamonix look amazing, photographers go crazy in Cham. Going with a guide and doing Valley Blanche is a must from the top of the Aguille Midi, it's something you have to do in your life time. You're reward for a scary roped up entrance will be glacial sites, skiing away from any traffic and people and finishing off with a mountain train ride back to a pub in Chamonix, mountain refuge stop on the way for lunch. Club Med in Chamonix is a good base, very central and for those that like eating prepare yourself (try not to eat anything the week before). If you think you're the best skier or board then think again..... someone in Cham will have bigger skis than you, skied deeper, gone faster or jumped further let alone climbed higher... Do it!

The Charm of Cham - 16/45/2012
Overall

Famous as the only ski-in ski-out accommodation in Chamonix, Club Med Chamonix is truly a grand old hotel. Bedrooms have been recently renovated in a novel and colourful style and are a good size. All rooms are spread across three wings, with the Savoy Wing having the best outlook across the pool and gardens and up to the towering Mont Blanc. Club Med has super-easy access to a button lift which feeds onto a bubble up to Le Brevent area, and you can ski back to within 15 metres of the ski room door, snow cover permitting. Because of it's layout, you will need to catch buses to explore the full Chamonix ski area. Don't let this be a negative - it's a truly amazing and beautiful place and somewhere that any diehard skier or boarder MUST do in their lifetime. The real charm of Cham is that it is a real village, inhabited by people that chose to live there year-round because they love the mountain lifestyle. It's not just a resort town that switches on and off seasonally - it has real heart and character.
