Chamonix is a famous mountaineering town. But after an active day on the mountain, you might want to relax and soak in the atmosphere outdoors at a bar or go for a spot of shopping.
Chamonix is ideal for strolling through its pedestrian streets, enjoying an ice-cream or dropping in to one of our favourite bars: Chambre Neuf, Elevation 1904, La Terrasse, MBC.
For sportswear, head over to Patagonia, or for a good-quality Savoie specialty food, check out Le Refuge de Payot. The year-round Chamonix market is open on Saturday mornings and is definitely worth a visit. There you’ll find reblochon cheese, crafts, fresh produce, mulled wine and a friendly, bustling vibe.
