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 40 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.

Update Covid-19 France 

Eurotunnel give comprehensive information about travel requirements between the UK and France.  ~  The French Health Pass or 'Pass Sanitaire' allows entry to ski areas, leisure and cultural venues, restaurants, bars, shopping centres, hospitals, long distance transport etc. It shows that the holder has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or has tested negative in the past 24 hours with either a PCR or antigen test. This pass is available to all EU citizens. For those outside the EU you must provide proof of your vaccines or negative test. Current information indicates that UK citizens, for example, can use their NHS app or use their NHS QR code to scan it into the French app 'TousAntiCovid'. We suggest you check with your embassy/consulate for the latest information. From 20th (tbc) January, to ski, all those aged 16 and over must be fully vaccinated. More information about the Pass Sanitaire, Travel and other regulations on our blog, last updated 18 January.

This winter Chamonix is very much open for business. The bars and restaurants are open, as are the lifts. Facemasks are obligatory in all public indoor areas and on ski lifts. For latest regulations for entry to France consult the French Government website.  We offer certain chalets on a long let basis, so perfect if you would like fresh mountain air and a beautiful place for confinement.  Do contact us.
