Charming village resort
Discover the quiet charm of the mountain's natural heritage. These resorts are members of the Mountain Village charter and are traditional villages with no modern buildings. Located close to protected natural areas, they offer all types of mountain activities (walking, air and water sports, land based activities...).
Take the Grandes Platières cable car and climb to an altitude of 2550 metres. From the top, the view over the peaks is superb. The whole of the Mont Blanc massif unfolds before your very eyes, and you can also catch a glimpse of peaks including the Aiguille Verte and the Aiguilles de Chamonix. The more athletic visitors will opt to walk back down (there are marked trails) or mountain bike.
From Le Fayet station, the Mont-Blanc tramway takes you right up to the snow-capped peaks. Climb on board a cog railway, and enjoy a trip across stunning Haute-Savoie landscapes, on the steep mountainside. The tram stops at the stations of Saint-Gervais, Motivon, Voza Pass, Bellevue and finally at the Nid d'Aigle ("eagle's nest"). At each station, you can get off to enjoy the view and take the next tram if you wish, to get the most out of each stage. In Bellevue, you will be rewarded with an exceptional panorama over the Bionnassay glacier.
