It is really tempting to discover the breathtaking beauty of the nature around and the culture of this area full of history. Close to the chalet, the church and the museum of religious art in Saint-Nicolas de Véroce are evidence of a rich heritage. The same can be said for the Saint-Nicolas de Combloux church. A little farther away, you will love going for a ride in a horse-drawn carriage in Megève. Drive down to Saint Gervais and discover the Thermes de Saint Gervais and its Espace Les Bains du Mont Blanc dedicated to wellness. Still in Saint Gervais, in the Fayet, the Mont Blanc tram is the highest rack railway in France. It offers a unique view of the Aiguilles de Chamonix and the Dômes de Miage. The Mont Blanc Express train also departs from Saint Gervais/Le Fayet and takes you to Martigny in Switzerland by Chamonix (one can get off at each stop). In Chamonix, taking the cable car to the top of the Aiguille du Midi (12,605 feet high) is a must. Also don't miss the Mer de Glace which you can access by the rack railway of the Montenvers which departs from inside the town of Chamonix. In the old town, you will also find a casino, numerous shops from world-famous outdoor/skiing brands and even a shop of the famous Chanel luxury brand!
You will find several nice restaurants not far from the chalet. O'Communailles offers very good local products to savour on a terrace facing the Mont Blanc. Just in front, l'Alpage is very tipical place with various traditional dishes, and also a beautiful view if you are having your meal outside. At the Bettex ski slopes departure, le Prestau is a nice place serving regional dishes. It also has an outside snack bar. The Pagu's & Monchu's in Saint-Nicolas de Véroce offers many dishes and delicious pizzas. Down in Saint-Gervais, the Bistrotsérac offers very good meat and a large choice of home-made pastries.
