Nestled at the south western edge of the Chamonix valley in France's Rhone-Alpes region, Les Houches is the ideal spot for a family ski holiday, with breathtaking surroundings, world class skiing and a quaint village atmosphere in one picturesque package. Surrounded by jagged peaks, lush alpine forests and watched over by the imposing face of Mont-Blanc, holidaymakers could hardly wish for a more photogenic setting. Some of the best views of Mont Blanc to be found anywhere can be seen from the little hamlet of la Flatiere, just above the main town of Les Houches and many visitors come for the stunning views alone. However, those looking for more will certainly find it in fantastic ski and snowboarding opportunities. Les Houches offers almost 1000 vertical metres of trails, including gentle beginner slopes, long blue and red trails through the trees and challenging black pistes to satisfy the expert skier.
