Coming from Sydney Australia, Chamonix could not have been a bigger contrast. Alas, the mountains have got charm! I am a singer here, in and around Chamonix and also like to pretend I can snowboard! This is an inspiring and stunning place to live and I would love you too to have a chance to experience it.
Chamonix is known for its Winters, but actually Spring and Summer here is pretty special. The array of wildflowers dotting the valley is gorgeous and can be seen from pretty much any short stroll or long hike. Chamonix valley is accessible on foot, public transport or by car depending on your preferences. If there's anything at all you'd like to know, feel free to get in touch.
