"Les Praz" Les Praz-de-Chamonix by Manara

Les Praz-de-Chamonix Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 6 photos

As a village, there is not much in Les Praz: a small church, a few shops, some hotels and restaurants. It is mainly a place for holiday homes, and in fact there are many.

During my summer holiday in Chamonix I was actually staying in Les Praz, and I never regretted not being closer to the more lively town. Walking to Chamonix takes less than 30 minuts, and if one does not feel like walking there are buses, as well as the little tram-train.

Even if Les Praz is on the route between Martigny (in Switzerland) and Chamonix, the traffic bypasses the centre of the village, so the main street, shown in the picture on the left, is always quiet.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Breathtaking landscape all around
  • Cons:It can be too quiet, if quiet is not what one looks for
  • In a nutshell:A great place for relaxing holidays
