The village resort of Les Houches is located in the Chamonix valley in the Haute Savoie, under a ten minute drive from Chamonix. Situated at an altitude of 1000 metres and lying at the foot of Mont-Blanc (4807m), Les Houches offers an exceptional panorama of the peaks surrounding Chamonix.

The village is made up of a number of hamlets, with oratories, chapels, old bread ovens and farms bearing witness to its past and being the objects of particular attention today.

We currently have 4 chalets available in this resort. View chalet results.

Skiing & Boarding In Les Houches

The ski domain of les Houches extends from an altitude of 1,000m to 1,860m and from the summit you have spectacular 360° views of Mont-Blanc and its nearby summits. The area will suit all abilities especially beginners and intermediates with its meandering pistes through the forests. The more advanced can sample some of the best powder tree skiing in the Chamonix Valley.

Les Houches is also very proud of its privately owned mountain restaurants and refuge huts. They are nearly all family run so there is excellent variety and as well as serving superb food and wine they all all have individual charm.

Les Houches also boasts the World Cup downhill run Le Kandahar on the area's only black run "La Verte".

Après-ski in Les Houches

The atmosphere in Les Houches is far more relaxed than Chamonix town and more suited to families, but there are still a few bars to keep the après ski affectionate happy.

The village is spread out along the main street in clusters around the town hall & church, the Bellevue lift and the Prarion lift. Each has several traditional bars and restaurants, with the most modern and lively at either end - le Delice and the Hotel Slalom. For more lively nightlife, it's best to head into Chamonix itself.
