France Alps Chamonix Luxury Holidays with In-Luxe Travel France, The luxury bespoke holidays in France specialist since 2007



Our tailor-made luxury holidays in France take you to Chamonix and the mythic Mont-Blanc that reigns over the Alps and dominates all of Europe from its 4810 meters above sea level, surrounded by illustrious peaks such as the Grandes Jorasse, the Dent du Géant, the Drus and the Aiguille du Midi. Since the 18th century, these giants have sparked dreams and challenges and written the history of men and women fascinated by the beauty of these massifs. They are the ones who forged the history of the entire valley, in particular that of Chamonix, a former quiet village surrounded by gigantic glaciers, which fascinated the first visitors in the 18th century. But it was the stay of Napoleon III and his wife Eugenie, who came to praise the merits of the Savoy’s rapprochement with France, that marked the beginning of a golden age of tourism and the meteoric growth of Chamonix.
Accompanied by a caravan of guides, they enjoyed the pleasures of the mountain by going to the Mer de Glace where Eugenie took a few steps and brought back a dazzled memory. This moment, immortalized by an exceptional photo, will change the face of Chamonix which then attracted a wealthy clientele who came to discover the charm of summer tourism in the high mountains. The village is then adorned with many restaurants and shops, a casino and four luxury palaces. At the start of the 20th century, wealthy tourists discovered winter sports and in 1924 attended the very first Olympic Winter Games here in Chamonix. An event!
Since his first ascent in 1786 by Doctor Michel Paccard led by the guide Jacques Balmat, who will also take Marie Paradis in 1808, the first woman to climb the summit of Mont-Blanc, many guides have distinguished themselves in Chamonix like the famous writer Roger Frison-Roche.
Once at its summit, you have the most outstanding view over France, Switzerland, the Alps and Italy. Many are the ones that the mythical summit continues to make dream of and if it is absolutely imperative to be accompanied with the best guides, it is also strongly recommended not to overestimate your capacities, the ascent of Mont Blanc being a real challenge which requires an excellent physical condition and good aptitudes to evolve in rocky and glacial terrain.

To prepare for it, we offer as a preamble, a discovery of mountaineering with an altitude run for acclimatization and a valley climbing school to polish your technique in rocky terrain before embarking on this adventure.

While traveling to Chamonix, other less sporting attractions are unmissable, such as the Montenvers train, a historic railway line along a spectacular route.
For a century, the little cogwheel train has taken travelers to Montenvers station, at an altitude of over 1900 m, to the Mer de Glace. The beauty of the site will leave you speechless. Facing you, descending the northern slope of Mont Blanc, the Mer de Glace, the largest glacier of Mont-Blanc, the Drus and the Aiguille Verte and all alone in this majestic setting, for nearly 150 years, the Grand hotel du Montenvers, designed at the time as a large refined chalet intended for a wealthy clientele.
From Montenvers station, a cable car takes you down to the level where the glacier was located in 1946. It is since this date that the Mer de Glace cave has been dug every year, an attraction with sounds, lights and ice sculptures. which attracts many visitors.
Today, the Mer de Glace has become an emblematic witness to climate change. It is the focus of all eyes and stirs up new and major ecological and scientific issues. The background of the Mer de Glace recedes to the point of threatening the disappearance of the famous cave sculpted inside.

Leaving the Montenvers cable car, a long staircase runs along the granite cliff. At the end of a few steps, a sign indicates: “level of the glacier in 1985”. You have to bend down to see the ice, a hundred meters below, almost invisible under the heap of gray rocks that it carries year after year.
Fifty steps lower take you to the year 1990. Then the descent continues as the glacier melts, with an acceleration in the 2000s. After the last panel, that of 2010, it is still necessary to descend 70 steps before setting foot on the ice.
On the Montenvers site, the Glaciorium is an interpretation center to answer any questions you may have when you are facing a glacier like the Mer de Glace.
A snowshoe trip on the Mer de Glace is of course possible in the company of a guide who will take you to discover this magical world.

Another exceptional site located at an altitude of 3,842 m is the Aiguille du Midi at the top of the monumental cable car arrival station. It is a huge antenna because the Aiguille du Midi is home to the epicenter of terrestrial broadcasts in France. Its terrace offers a panorama on all the main peaks over 4000 m in the French, Swiss and Italian Alps.
But if the place attracts crowds, it is because the Aiguille du Midi is also the starting point for the ascent of Mont-Blanc via the three Mountains, (two summits before reaching Mont-Blanc being the Mont-Blanc du Tacul and Mont Maudit), and towards the mythical Vallée Blanche, a very famous off-piste, the opportunity for the most daring to set off on new adventures.

For a more serene but no less exhilarating adventure that will deliver intense sensations, an elevator takes you from the summit terrace to the upper platform where an entirely glazed box awaits you, the Pas dans le Vide, a safe and unmissable experience. Here, the gaze embraces the highest peaks in Western Europe and the Bossons glacier which offers the largest glacial drop in the world of almost 3370m (4810m – 1440m).
You can continue your extraordinary journey over the glaciers between the Aiguille du Midi and Pointe Helbronner in Italy by taking the Panoramic Mont-Blanc cable car.


We have no fixed itinerary, because at In-Luxe Travel France, true luxury follows no one else but you and combines rarity, knowledge, know-how, intuition. Take these itineraries as simply suggestions for the kind of holiday you might have in Auvergne, the Rhône Valley and the Alps.
