Christmas in The Alps

Mont Blanc lies in a range called the Graian Alps, between the regions of Aosta Valley, Italy, and Haute-Savoie, France. Most families plan séjours in the spring or summer -- but why not take advantage of the school break and plan a month-long séjour during the Christmas holidays? Your kids might need to miss a few weeks of school, but I bet you could get a "hall pass" from your children's teachers....

Legendary Chamonix

Mountaineers from all over the world make their way to Chamonix to experience the largest mountain in Europe. Mont Blanc is 4,810 meters of rock, snow and ice. The enormity and beauty is breathtaking - whether you are skiing down one of the pistes or shopping in the village. Chamonix is one of the most beautiful ski resorts in the world. Stay in the village for easy access to shops and restaurants.

Family Friendly Les Houches

Located about 10 minutes drive from Chamonix, Les Houches is decidedly more traditional and family friendly. A string of hamlets offers a variety of ski-in, ski-out chalets. Imagine waking up on Christmas morning and heading out for a quick ski!
