Chamonix in September was really nice, I visited there with my parents and Alessio for a long weekend. We could not have asked for a better time weather wise, it was sunny and bright and when we went up the mountain to see Mont Blanc it was lovely.
The town itself is not really big, we walked around each evening picked different restaurants to dine in. We took the typical tourist train which pleased Alessio no end, and got see more bits of the town plus we also find out more information about Chamonix.
There was a German band visiting, playing music all week outside our hotel which was quite pleasant. We also did a hike which I will post about later on, that was also really nice. We found an area with cool bars, we picked one and had a glass of champagne in it, where Alessio is wrapped in a purple blanket.
If you have not been to Chamonix when it is well worth a visit, not being a winter sport person much prefer it in the summer months.
