This cosy bar can be found in Mercure Hotel Chamonix, France. The hotel is located at the foot of Mont Blanc and the Aiguille du Midi mountains, and only a few steps away from the Chamonix’s railway station.
Chamonix is one of the oldest ski resort towns in France. Mark Twight describes Chamonix as “the death-sport capital of the world” because it is a base for extreme sports like ice-climbing, rock climbing, paragliding, rafting, canyoning, wingsuit flying and extreme skiing.
Something to shout about:-
- Chamonix played host to the first Winter Olympics in 1924
- The gondola that brings skiers and visitors up to Mont-Blanc (Western Europe’s tallest mountain) is just 10 minutes walk from the hotel.
- Pierce Brosnan went to Chamonix to film the James Bond movie, The World Is Not Enough.
- McDonalds is just up the road in the town centre, so you need never go hungry.
