A Hedonist’s guide to…

Chamonix

L’Atmosphere
As something of a local favourite, L'Atmosphere serves up comfort food classics on a glorious, sun-soaked terrace. Be sure to bring your shades.
Le Bistrot des Sports
Expect a warm welcome at Le Bistrot des Sports, which offers regional favourites on its menu and a buzzing atmosphere of locals.
Le Albert 1er
As one of Chamonix's super-stays, guests at Le Albert 1er can expect extremely well-appointed rooms and amenities aplenty.

Amazon Creek
Amazon Creek is one of the chicest chalets on the slopes; five fabulous bedrooms offer sumptuous ski style while the heated outdoor swimming pool would thaw out even the iciest of skiers.
Le Bachal
Le Bachal - meaning pool or basin - is where Chamonix's most seasoned spa lovers come to rest, relax and rejuvenate.
Munchie
Munchie is one of the hippest hotspots in Chamonix; inside is a crowd of bright young things who flock here for Asian-inspired fare and an achingly trendy scene.
Albert 1er
The jewel in Chamonix's culinary crown; Albert 1er has it all, from fabulous French flare to super-stylish surroundings. Book to avoid obvious disappointment.
Praz Sports
Ensure you've got your grubby little mitts on the most stylish ski equipment and accessories from Praz Sports, which offers the best your hard-earned Euros can buy.
Plan Joran
Fancy French fare is served with flare at Plan Joran; wash it all down with a glass (or three!) of red on the sun-soaked terrace.
Heli-skiing
France and Switzerland may have banned heli-skiing from its peaks, but in Italy it's a different story altogether; rage against the machine and indulge in the adrenaline-pumping sport in Monte Rosa.
Elevation 1904
Elevation 1904 is one of the most famous après ski venues in Chamonix, with plenty of al fresco seating for drunken fun in the sun.
Eden Les Praz
Eden Les Praz boasts a menu to-dine-for, with a mouthwatering menu of simple dishes cooked well.
La Bergerie
Those seeking traditional French food should head to La Bergerie, which boasts a seasonally-changing menu and a warm, intimate atmosphere that is an inviting respite from the cold outside.
Maison Carrier
Maison Carrier is chalet dining at its most chic; think hearty fare, heavy red wines and a crackling fire in the background.
Les Vielles Luges
Les Vielles Luges is the perfect place to a booze-soaked lunch - if you can find it, that is.
Argentière & Grand Montets
The most difficult on-piste skiing in Chamonix...
Aiguille du Midi (Vallée Blanche)
