Welcome to Collineige

Luxury Chalets, find the True Chamonix...

Welcome to the Collineige website, a window on my world. That world is the Chamonix Valley, where I arrived as a keen young skier and traveller… and never quite got round to leaving.
I have raised my family here, and Collineige remains the same small specialist chalet company dealing solely with Chamonix, that it was when I set it up over 30 years ago.

I am proud of the collection of ski chalets and apartments I have put together over the years. They include some of the most beautiful properties in Chamonix and its spectacular valley, and the team of chefs we have assembled for our catered chalets is second to none.

I am equally proud of the reputation we have built, for the service we offer. ‘Personalised service’ is a tourism cliché. With Collineige it means, if you take a holiday with us, we are on the spot to put our local knowledge and contacts at your disposal, and to listen, respond and react to any problem or request without delay.

Why Chamonix? We think the skiing is the best. Famously challenging, if you insist, but there are plenty of gentle runs too. In summer the place is idyllic, and the range of opportunities fans out: hiking, white water rafting, climbing, golf, mountain biking… against the stunning backdrop of Mont Blanc. And we are only 70 minutes’ drive from Geneva. If you haven’t tried Chamonix, you certainly should.

Please browse the website to see what we have to offer, and if you have any questions do get in touch. I will make it my business to respond, without delay.

Xmas or New year in Chamonix 2016/17?

As Christmas and New Year's Day fall on Sunday this year we have tweaked our arrival days over the Festive period.  Generally we are proposing weeks 22nd - 29th December for Christmas (Thursday to Thursday) and 29th December - 5th January for New Year but this is updated on each chalet page according to existing bookings.

Sorry the website is not happy with different dates hence the dates on the pricing grids for the festive period (and the week before) are not correct!

Many of our chalets are booked months in advance.  To secure your favourite chalet or date, especially Christmas, New Year and peak February weeks, do contact us.



Booking Security

Rest assured your booking is safe with Collineige.  We have an ATOL licence and IPP for non-flight package reservations.  We have a secure website and take credit card payments which also offer consumer protection.

The Vallée Blanche by Moonlight!

We ski the Vallee Blanche by moonlight! When the conditions are right (normally in February and March) this is an incredible adventure. Contact us if you would like to take part in this once in a lifetime experience.
