The best of the Tour du Mont Blanc in a week - all from a comfortable chalet in the Chamonix Valley

View from Chamonix centre

The circuit of Mont Blanc is one of the finest walking routes in the Alps. It is in reality a series of paths linking the seven valleys that surround the highest mountain in Western Europe. To complete the whole circuit normally takes a fortnight, but for those with less time this one-week trip takes in the outstanding sections, from Trient in Switzerland to Les Contamines in France, and Italy's Aosta region. We stay the entire week at the comfortable Chalet Savoy, situated in the quiet hamlet of Les Chavants, in Les Houches in the Chamonix Valley. Using our own transport we travel out each day to rejoin the next stage of our walk; most transfers are short, and after each day's walk we return to the chalet, avoiding the need to carry luggage, or pack and unpack each day. The chalet has 8 bedrooms all with private facilities, and evening meals are taken in the rustic wood-beamed dining room or in the garden with its superb mountain views and outdoor hot tub. For many years this has been one of our most popular Mont Blanc walking holidays.
