The soaring French Alps are home to the best ski slopes in Europe, starting of course with Chamonix. Here you can take the cable car to the Aiguille du Midi, a needle-like rock formation where you can visit the “Step into the Void” glass-bottomed viewing platform. The views of majestic Mont Blanc and the French, Swiss and Italian Alps will be worth the vertigo! Afterwards, try Evian-les-Bains or Aix-les-Bains for a rejuvenating soak in soothing geothermal waters. Perched on a lovely lake in the foothills of the French Alps, Annecy is a charming fairytale town laced with canals and castles, while Grenoble, the “capital of the Alps,” is a stunner with its Fort de la Bastille, reachable via cable car for gorgeous city views. Wherever you choose to lay your head, let our hotels in the French Alps be your home away from home on your holiday.
