SATURDAY ARRIVALS ONLY - The Residence Le Grand Balcon is a self-catering complex made up of 8 traditional chalets built of wood, overlooking the valley and the Mont Blanc mountain range.

A shuttle bus service operates from just outside the Le Grand Balcon's reception into the centre of Chamonix. It's a cosmopolitan but traditional resort and has 5 different ski areas offering something for everyone.
